‘Sydney is being lost to Islam’: Right-wing activist Gavin McInnes claims Australian cities risk being overrun by Muslim migrants – as he prepares for speaking tour
- Far-right activist and comedian Gavin McInnes is due to tour Australia this year
- McInnes likened Sydney to London’s lack of ethnic ‘assimilation’ and ‘integration’
- The comic also said he was prepared to fight violent left-wing protesters on tour
- His males’ rights group is notorious for its fights with the hard-left group Antifa
A far-right activist has slammed Australia for losing its culture to Muslim extremists and said he is prepared to fight protesters when he tours the country in November.
British-born Canadian comedian Gavin McInnes was banned from Twitter earlier this month for being a ‘violent extremist’ and has been labelled by critics as sexist, racist and a white supremacist.
McInnes is the founder of the pro-Donald Trump males’ rights group The Proud Boys – whose members are notorious for engaging in street brawls with left-wing Antifa protestors.

According to news.com.au, McInnes said Australian culture was being lost to Islam.
‘Look at Sydney, it’s being lost to Islam just like West London was. In fact there’s parts of Sydney totally indistinguishable from West London,’ he told the publication.
‘It’s exactly the same – the sense of capitulation, discouraging assimilation.’
Census data from 2016 reveals that Australia is religously diverse, though, with Islam making up less than 2.6 per cent of the population – according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
The 48-year-old said his goal was not to preach politics during his national tour of Australia in November – billing his trip as a comedy tour.
But the co-founder of Vice magazine said he was prepared to fight against violent left-wing protesters.

He said: ‘People will show up and if they want to fight – I’m happy to fight.’
McInnes previously described attacks on Donald Trump’s ‘p***y grabbing’ comments as a ‘war on masculinity’ on Channel 10 show The Project in 2016.
He also referred to Australia as ‘the last verge of masculinity’ and a ‘hot Canada’.
McInnes’ tour is being organised by magazine Penthourse, who were also behind right-wing provacteur Milo Yiannopoulos’ controversial tour of Australia last year.
