What is it with fashionistas and “white power” bullshit? First, there’s Gavin McInnes, whom the New York Times called a “white supremacist” back in 2003, at the peak of Gavin’s fame. Seems Gavin started an exciting new fashionista trend, because John Galliano, another fashionista who shares with Gavin McInnes a fondness for silly mustaches, just unveiled his “White Power Fashionista” line for the summer of 2011, emphasizing a hatred for Jews, and a love for the Guru of all white-power-fashionistas-with-silly-mustaches, good ol’ Adolph Hitler.

Here’s a video of Galliano outdoing Gavin at his own white-power fashionista game:

Compare that to what the New York Times wrote about Gavin McInnes in 2003:

He actually leans much further to the right than the Republican Party. His views are closer to a white supremacist’s. ”I love being white and I think it’s something to be very proud of,” he said. ”I don’t want our culture diluted. We need to close the borders now and let everyone assimilate to a Western, white, English-speaking way of life.”
In an interview in The New York Press last year, Mr. McInnes’s views came through in the coarse ethnic expressions he used in saying how pleased he was that most Williamsburg hipsters are white. As a result, he became the focus of a letter-writing campaign by a black reader.

Who’s cooler? Who’s trendier? Who’s edgier? White Power fashionistas want to know!

Update: Gavin McInnes apparently doesn’t like it when the public is reminded of the fashionista’s white supremacist ways. Over the past 2 days, Mark Ames has been forwarded emails from some of his editors, emails sent to them from Gavin McInnes, campaigning to get Ames blackballed by borrowing the right-wing smear against Julian Assange, accusing Ames of being a rapist. Kids, if you’re wondering what happens to Canadian fashionista hipsters when they hit 40, here’s your headline: “From White-Power Fashionista to Republican Party Snitch: Gavin McInnes, you’ve come a long way, baby!”

Update #2: It gets even weirder. Gavin McInnes sent us a “tip” that his and Jim Goad’s campaign to smear Ames through the FoxNews/rightwing echo chamber is paying off big-time, folks: according to Gavin, a producer at Geraldo Rivera “answered our emails”. Oh no! Jerry Rivers Alert! Danger! Danger!

    Watch as the fashion world’s very foundations are beaten down, beaten down faster than one of Jim Chod’s dates.

  • 2. Teenwolf  |  March 2nd, 2011 at 12:00 am

    I would argue that John Galliano’s moustache is worse

  • 3. Hannibal  |  March 2nd, 2011 at 2:57 am

    I laughed out loud when I read Galliano had called somebody an ugly jew face; hadn’t heard that one since grade school.

  • 4. badnewswade  |  March 2nd, 2011 at 3:25 am

    How kind of him to acknowlege that hipster scum are indeed a colonising force of homogeneity and conformity. Perhaps we’ll only shoot him when the revolution comes…

  • 5. Eddie  |  March 2nd, 2011 at 3:32 am

    Hitler cannot be blamed for this one. I’m pretty sure he made his position pretty clear on homosexuality.

    P.S I just love this guys Hungarian jacket. LOVE IT!

  • 6. JJT  |  March 2nd, 2011 at 6:24 am

    I agree with McInnes. I love being white.

  • 7. Jimbo  |  March 2nd, 2011 at 7:27 am

    I’m not proud of being white trash but sadly that’s what I am. I’d say I hate just about everybody, Jews; because I hate any sort of identity based on religious beliefs, white trash whites because they’re too stupid to vote in their own interests, blacks because their ghetto gangsterism doesn’t get them anywhere but the penitentiary and lets them be used as a bogeyman to scare middle class whites, middle class whites for their moral self righteousness and craven worshipping of the elites, the elites for their megalomania. They’re all sick and fucked up and some would should say it. Is Jim Goad really a defender of the teaparty and Koch and Cato institute if so then fuck him.

  • 8. aleke  |  March 2nd, 2011 at 1:55 pm

    Whites have grown weak, fat, and stupid with their brazen decadence and degeneracy. Long Live the Victory of People’s War!

  • 9. HATETHEKKK  |  March 2nd, 2011 at 2:15 pm

    Proud to be white. Proud to be white trash. Not proud to be associated by skin color with these 2 people.
    Not hating yourself is the first step to not hating others!

    Drat. The video got yanked.

    @4: “How kind of him to acknowlege that hipster scum are indeed a colonising force of homogeneity and conformity. Perhaps we’ll only shoot him when the revolution comes…”

    McInnes is only a white supremacist *ironically*.

  • 13. maus  |  March 2nd, 2011 at 3:14 pm

    @7: “I’m not proud of being white trash but sadly that’s what I am. I’d say I hate just about everybody,”

    Ah, the uneducated “i’m not a racist because i hate everyone equally” idiots chime in.

    Do you think that makes you better than a white supremacist? You’re just as loathsome, you simply have a wider scope of hate. There’s nothing more rational about your “independent” and ill-researched ideas and unquestioning acceptance of stereotypes.

    Drown in your own vomit, mouthbreathers.

  • 14. Derp  |  March 2nd, 2011 at 3:38 pm

    Derp derp! The guy on the right talks like a fag and his shit’s all retarded.

    Then again, dunno, guy on not sure what he talks like but his shit looks all retarded too.

    Gavin McInnes wins, derp derp!

  • 15. a  |  March 2nd, 2011 at 6:17 pm

    What’s fun is how the billionaire jews have convinced the tea party crowd that they should really direct their racism towards the black man.

    Meanwhile, they (poor, jobless, fox news fans) are getting prison-raped by jews, from the kock (oops!) brothers to ben bernanke. lol indeed. Somebody besides Charlie Sheen is “winning”.

    Er…I mean, can’t we all just get along…while being prison-raped by jews? That’s the way they’d want us to behave…while prison-raping us.

  • 16. Jimbo  |  March 2nd, 2011 at 7:00 pm

    Hey maus I don’t care about being better than white supremacists or not. If it wasn’t all a sham then I’d be a white supremacist. I’d hate you too but you’re too pathetic. Uneducated? Listening to pathetic pseudo-lefty academics while living in a skid row neighborhood where all the cities refuse and rejects were concentrated so real estate industries could renovate the rest of the city. That’s what helped turned me into what I am.

  • 17. NIB  |  March 2nd, 2011 at 7:42 pm

    @Jimbo. Me and Bill Hicks are both with you on the hate everyone equally front :-) “People who hate people come together!”…

  • 18. NIB  |  March 2nd, 2011 at 7:56 pm

    @maus. So your position is to hate nobody except anyone who tries to use humor to acknowledge the problems that beset the various ethnic groups in your country?
    (who should “drown in their own vomit”- not hateful at all). If you don’t look at why stereotypes exist (because you’re too PC to risk criticism) you just perpetuate the existing injustices so obvious in your country’s culture. First develop a sense of humor, then brace yourself, then face the reality you live in. Idiot.

  • 19. Marcus McSpartacus  |  March 2nd, 2011 at 8:03 pm

    I vote Taki Theodoracopulos, the guy who publishes TakiMag where Goad edits. Taki called himself an anti-Semite and said black immigrants “multiply like flies” in Britain.

  • 20. jericho  |  March 2nd, 2011 at 9:27 pm

    Two people whose opinions don’t matter, going to great lengths to shock others. Next thing ya know they’re gonna take their little act door to door.

    Yawn.

  • 21. Strelnikov  |  March 2nd, 2011 at 10:04 pm

    I want to see the full video uncensored; did Galliano rant on, or did he realize what he had said and stopped talking? That’s the key difference between him and McInnes; Gavin McInnes was cold sober when he said those things eight years ago. Also, I think it’s now no longer possible for people to say crazy things in public spaces without somebody recording it on a cell phone, then dumping that video on YouTube. A blackmailer’s paradise.

  • 22. rick  |  March 2nd, 2011 at 10:35 pm

    Anti-semitism just makes me sick. I just want to put anti-semites all in vast camps and perform dental experiments on them.

  • 23. Jared  |  March 2nd, 2011 at 11:52 pm

    I asked Gavin if he was going to respond to all this shit. He said he was pretending not to be bothered, and that besides, Goad was carrying all of his water for him. See, Gavin has a lot more to lose than Goad, so Gavin is trying to back out of this now, encouraging Goad to take the lead. Poor Jim Goad, snookered by hipsters again. Think for yourself, poor earnest bastard, Gavin is a bourgeois rat, the sooner you figure that out, the sooner you’ll get something going.

  • 24. Andrew  |  March 3rd, 2011 at 8:05 am

    Gavin McInnes actually is way into race… when he was writing for Vice they’d fairly regularly interview revisionist historians, “The Bell Curve” demographers, VDare people, the American Renaissance people, and then include some “haha look at these stupid white trash racists at Hammerfest… but their music is actually pretty good hardcore and they sort of have a point…” and they were the ones that introduced Prussian Blue to the media world. He actively consorts with racists, reads a lot of racist materials, etc… this is one of his honest interests.

    He had an army of impressionable 14-25 year olds reading his stupid rag… he helped make cocaine “cool” again after a long dip in use and status, made it funny and acceptable to say racist jokes and drop nigger when around white people, and introduced a stupid right wing ideology, all in the name of irony or whatever. He’s a vile pussy that’s being used by the powers that be. And what pisses me off especially is him saying things like punk rock, the hippies, hipsterism, etc are all about young people dressing up and shacking up… fuck no, that’s a part of it, but it is about actively trying to make something different and new – it is a political gesture that can be furthered onwards. Subcultures and the counterculture in America are potentials of an alternative to post-political biopolitics, but they are also symptomatic of said system.

    He also helped start Vice with public funds… and worked for the Canadian government planting trees, and his dad is a wealthy military industrial sort of guy, from what I’ve heard. So he’s just a coked out yuppie obsessed with youth culture.

  • 25. bieber's boyfriend  |  March 3rd, 2011 at 6:34 pm

    Gavin McInnes here again. Yeah, I’m totally against Julian Assange because it’s cool to be against him. Oh, and I’m horrified by people who fuck prostitutes. I do declare!

  • 26. Ramona  |  March 3rd, 2011 at 7:13 pm

    Neither of these “white supremacists” looks white to me

  • 27. Jyp  |  March 4th, 2011 at 5:11 am

    Huh. Okay. But what is a “fashionista”? Is it some kind of Mexican thing or what? I know what a “Margarita” is. It’s some kind of a booze drink. And um probably not a good idea for either of these characters to come round here. Some of these old boys are actual white supremicist ‘mo haters and would certainly stomp their ass but good. Just sayin’.

  • 28. East Coast Hustle  |  March 4th, 2011 at 9:53 am

    “Gavin McInnes”? When did we start letting the Irish consider themselves white?

  • 29. Brilliant  |  March 6th, 2011 at 12:23 pm

    You quote the NYT straight. they called McInnes a white supremacist. They said he was closer (what does that mean exactly?) to White Supremacism than to the GOP.

    he could have sued them, and now maybe he can sue you.

    sincerely yours,
    gavin mcinnes

    #24 got hipsters totally wrong.

    They’re not about “change” or “movements” or anything so grand. What they ARE all about is desperately and irrationally trying to discredit anything mainstream because deep down, they know what useless upper class trust fund twits they are. Rather than refusing to acknowledge that they’re failures, they try to pass it off as refusing to partake in mainstream society; they didn’t fail at life, life was too lame for them to bother with.

    They’re pretty much summed up by Keanu Reeves’ character in My Own Private Idaho and that chick from Ghost World.

  • 31. Gavin McInnes  |  March 7th, 2011 at 8:27 am

    “It gets even weirder”
    You want to hear really weird? I never sent any emails to anyone about Ames.

  • 32. Jared  |  March 11th, 2011 at 1:23 pm

    Gavin’s meat is tighter

  • 33. Kristen  |  April 15th, 2011 at 11:05 am

    So apparently John Galliano has gotten fired from John Galliano, the label where he was the creative director. See all the drama and his infamous ‘I Love Hitler’ rant video here:
