TEL AVIV – Wednesday’s International Women’s Strike was the “stupidest moment in the history of American politics,” libertarian commentator and VICE co-founder Gavin McInnes told Breitbart Jerusalem.

The strike, McInnes said, “wasn’t about women’s rights, it was about spite, about doing what makes your dad the most angry.”

According to the conservative rabble-rouser, the organizers of the latest march “don’t just hate the patriarchy, they hate their father, they’re just mad at their dad and it’s a pretty retarded political philosophy when your entire ethos is based on making your dad mad.”

He slammed protestors – including men – who donned hijabs in solidarity with Muslim women during the first Women’s March in January for being “offensive to 100% of the world,” and for taking the lead from Linda Sarsour, a women who “proudly speaks on behalf of introducing Sharia law in America.”

“You think they learned their lesson and said, alright, we screwed up…but then they get someone who is way more radical than Sarsour,” he said referring to co-organizer of Wednesday’s Women’s Strike, Rasmea Odeh, a convicted terrorist accused of bombing attacks in the late 1960s that killed two Israeli university students and injured nine more.

McInnes spoke to Breitbart Jerusalem after delivering a comedy-bit entitled “Trump in Israel” in Tel Aviv as part of what he called a “fact-finding mission” to discover the truth about the Jewish state, since, in his words, “the fake news is not telling us the whole story.”

As part of his “supertrip,” McInnes visited West Bank settlements and Israel’s security fence, which he said he “adored.”

“I adore the wall, I adore everything about the wall, I adore checkpoints,” the conservative provocateur said.

McInnes also had some choice words for Israelis intent on making peace with the Palestinians. “Stop with the helping, and the understanding, and the negotiating,” he said.

When asked what his solution to the conflict would be, he retorted, “Build a wall, f**k you.”

“The future is Jerusalem. The future is a nine-meter wall,” he told Breitbart Jerusalem.

He further condoned the notion that every Israeli, and not just IDF soldiers, carry firearms.

“This isn’t New York. You’re at war, the bad guys are right there, you should all have guns.”

McInnes dismissed the idea that there has been a surge in anti-Semitism since President Donald Trump took office.

“I don’t believe there is a spike in antisemitism. We learned just today that in New York the gravestones that were vandalized were vandalized by Mother Nature,” he said, in reference to remarks made by the director of the Brooklyn cemetery who said that the tombstones had long been deteriorating and some had toppled over years ago.

“Half the sh*t we’re seeing are hoaxes, we had this ridiculous thing in Brooklyn where this fat, liberal woman had spray-painted ‘Go Trump!’ and then a swastika, but the swastika was backwards,” he said. “Now Nazis, if they know one thing, it’s what a swastika looks like.”

“It’s almost like the left was excited to find some hate,” he added.

According to McInnes, the “biggest problem with American Jews is they don’t recognize that Trump is pro-Israel.”

“Trump is a turning point in America’s history, everything’s fun now. In fact, my only fear is dying from ‘winning exhaustion,'” he quipped.

“While the liberals b*tch and go through their stages of grievance from denial to depression, we just watched the stock markets going up, we watched the economy thriving, we watched this great Israeli diplomat [U.S. Ambassador to Israel David] Friedman get into office and you just go ‘I don’t care how long it takes for you to catch up to the fact that we’re in the lead but er, we’re in the lead. We won.'”

While McInnes says moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem will be a “traumatic gesture” for the Muslim and Arab world, he concedes that “if anyone has the balls to do it, it’s Trump.”

“And it will be f**king beautiful.”
