American actress Leslie Jones he's called feminism and ugly sociopathic cancer publicly disparaged a transgender student and supporters of the black lives matter movement black lives matter doesn't

denies he's a white national recently he was filmed singing America the Beautiful while the audience gave the Nazi salute well ahead of a controversial but speaking tour of Australia later why did this year Marlowe joins us now from Miami and welcome to summer it's good to have you here I've seen a lot of your clips and I can't help but think whether you actually mean half the things that you say and whether you're just trying to get attention do you actually believe in what you say are you just just trying to stir the pot well a lot of people have that reaction a lot of people have that question I don't want to be weird they're a I don't know why should be weird that a gay guy would be skeptical or fearful of Islam I don't see anything strange about a gay person liking the Bible and liking the First Amendment and liking low taxes I don't find anything odd about me really um in order to find me peculiar or strange or in order to think that perhaps I'm putting it on you have to sign up to this idea of identity politics which suggests that just because somebody is black or gay or a woman they have to have particular political or ideological positions I reject that idea gay or whatever I'm just saying you know some of the things are just so outrageous and the way you put them on thing is like a real like Borat that's just out there to make fun of everyone and what do you think that reaches what do you think that I've said is outrageous any something called rape culture a fantasy of like in feminism to can say you've said that women on the pill don't look like they don't talk right but you suggest that well all those things are true okay you said that do you really want American college campuses rape rape you know to say that there is a rape culture implies that there is a system or an environment which encourages rape that doesn't exist on American college campuses and just to believe in the statistics that feminists peddle that's a one in four one in five women is going to be sexually assaulted in her time on campus you'd have to believe that American college campuses have rape rates that approach those of the Congo where rape is used as a weapon of war we don't reward rapists in our society we put them in prison on the feminism question women agree with me four-fifths of American women do not describe them as feminist and just 7% of British women described themselves as feminists I would imagine that Australia being a very sensible country would share those views – it's only journalists who insist on political positions and insist on feminist in public with almost every interview that I saw you you do different questions – I'm just about to you've said that women on the pill don't look right and don't talk right but you don't suggest that we replace the pill with anything because you say we need the kids to breed enough to keep the Muslim invaders at bay I'm just not sure why you want to be hurtful rather than just have a reasoned debate can't you get the same out and conservatives have tried for 30 years to be polite to obey the speech codes of the left oh you shouldn't make jokes about this you shouldn't hold these positions if you actually read the column in question which is titled birth control makes women unattractive and crazy which Hillary Clinton quoted in her campaign speeches you'll actually find that it's a work of satire but it is based on scientific studies there are consequences to women's bodies when they're on the contraceptive pill and to finish off a column saying something about you know declining birth rates in the West and increasing birth rates in the East is perfectly true a lot of this you know the thing that people get upset about more than anything else is inconvenient truths things that people don't like you to say is stuff that they kind of know is real but you're just not supposed to say in polite society well my function in culture my purpose if you like is just say those things that other people either aren't able to or don't feel willing to do because I want to be a firestarter I want to blow open the fire doors I want to incite unity to instigate debate and other people then can take that wherever they choose I don't want everyone to be like me but it's very important that some people are like me in a culture of stultifying political correctness people are worried about making the wrong jokes worried about having the wrong opinions and worried even inciting the wrong studies okay while you're touring later this year thanks very much for joining us thanks Bato thank you thank you so much I rest my case from a very first question
