Antifa finds out what happens when they screw with real cops



Antifa, the cowardly fascist organization that attacks anyone it deems unworthy, found out the hard way that, unlike the pathetic Portland Police, there are real cops who enforce the law they swore to uphold. The other day Antifa attacked those participating in the Straight Parade in Boston.

US police fired pepper spray Saturday after counter-demonstrators accused them of protecting “Straight Pride” advocates who support President Donald Trump, and refused to let officers re-open a road.

The unrest came after the counter-protesters and “Straight Pride” group — considered homophobic extremists by their opponents — staged dueling rallies in Boston.

There was no serious violence during the rallies themselves, which involved groups of several hundred.

But after the “Straight Pride” group had dispersed, the counter-protesters accused police of protecting “Nazis,” chanted “shame on you” and formed a human chain which police tried to get through, an AFP photographer said.

Officers fired pepper spray and made several arrests.

They found out the Boston Police Department was not going to let them wreak anarchy. Here is a video of the Antifa morons resisting police orders

Boston cops are actually cops.

The Antifa sissies finally let leak a truth

“We’re covered in black so when we attack these guys we can’t be prosecuted,” said Jon Crowley, an Antifa member who told the Herald that he felt violence was the only way to deal with the people marching in the parade, which went from Copley Square to City Hall Plaza. “They are fascists, 100%. How else are you going to get them to shut up?”

Crowley clearly failed Irony 101. He also failed US Constitution 101. It was Antifa who attacked the parade participants. It is Antifa who seeks to silence anyone with whom they disagree.

That’s called fascism.

36 people were arrested- all of the Antifa. To his great credit, the presiding Judge refused to dismiss the charges

A Boston Municipal Court judge on Tuesday refused to drop assault charges against dozens of people arrested at the “Straight Pride Parade” over the weekend, including one counterprotester who claims he did nothing wrong.

Boston police took 36 people into custody during the controversial event on Saturday.

Rod Webber, one of the counterprotesters of the parade, recorded himself getting arrested.

“I’d done nothing wrong so I calmly started to walk away and you can see my video because I turned my selfie stick around and you see that I was targeted,” he said. “I was put in a chokehold and put down and told I was under arrest and they really messed up my leg.”

Webber faces charges of disorderly person and resisting arrest.

The Antifa punks caused harm to the police. First they threw dirt and eggs at the Boston police and graduated to hurling bottles of chemicals and urine at them. Four cops were injured.

Astonishingly- or maybe not- two members of the “the Squad” were backing the Antifa animals

U.S. Reps. Ayanna Pressley and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, members of the so-called “squad” of new left-wing congresswomen, are backing the anti-Straight Pride protesters accused of assaulting cops and the marchers, and touting a fund for their defense.

An online fundraiser initiated by the Lucy Parsons Center, a Jamaica Plain anarchist bookstore, has raised more than $24,000 for the legal costs of the 36 people arrested at the Straight Pride Parade, including nine charged with assaulting cops.

Pressley, who represents much of Boston, Cambridge and Somerville, retweeted a link to the fund and told reporters in Boston Monday, “I don’t think they should have been arrested, and that’s why I’ve been promoting a bail fund to support them. … They were protesting a racist, fascist, demonstration.”

Ocasio-Cortez, of New York City, tweeted a link and wrote, “One way to support the local LGBTQ community impacted by Boston’s white supremacist parade? Contribute to the Bail Fund for the activists who put themselves on the line protecting the Boston community.”

The bookstore didn’t respond to a request for comment on Monday.

The Boston Police Patrolmen’s Association president Michael Leary wrote to Ayanna Presley

Dear Representative Pressley:

I am writing on behalf of the Boston Police Patrolmen’s Association to strongly protest your decision to urge your constituents to contribute to a bail fund for protesters arrested this weekend during the Straight Pride rally in downtown Boston. The Police are assigned to work at these kind of events in order to keep the peace and control any crowds or disorder. Whether someone was there as part of the rally or as a counter protest, the Boston Police officers are there to treat all the same and to maintain order. My members have informed me that the individuals who were arrested on Saturday were not peaceful protesters but were committing crimes of assault against Boston Police Officers. In fact at least four officers were injured by actions of some of the protesters. These officers were screamed at, abused and fought by these so-called peaceful protesters. Your actions in support of these individuals serves only to encourage criminal and disruptive behaviors such as those suffered by my members this weekend. This attitude also further contributes to the growing we/they attitude against police officers in this Country. As an elected official and particularly as someone who has historically worked with the Boston Police Department and the BPPA as a member of the Boston City Council you should be working to encourage Boston city residents and visitors to respect and cooperate with Boston Police officers who are there to serve and protect. The BPPA supports the right of free speech, but free speech does not include the right to abuse and assault the men and women who are appointed to keep the peace.

I urge you to reconsider your support of the protest bail fund. Instead, I hope you will make it clear to your supporters that you don’t approve of violent behavior against public safety personnel.

Michael Leary
Boston Police Patrolmen’s Association

Good luck with that.

Kudos to the Boston Police Department for doing their duty. And for the record, this is who was arrested, courtesy of Andy Ngo

Boston police protected the 1st amendment rights of normal folks. After the parade dispersed Antifa hot for blood (screeching insults at the parade not violent enough) decides to take on armed men not exactly the smart thing to do.

The unrest came after the counter-protesters and “Straight Pride” group — considered homophobic extremists by their opponents — staged dueling rallies in Boston.

So, therefore, any Gay Pride parade is heterophobic. Would that be correct?

Of course Sandy and Pressley come out in support of ANTIFA. Violence is a handy tool for Democrats today. No Democrats will denounce the ANTIFA violence nor the US Representatives who, instead of standing by the rule of law, support fascist violence. Eventually, any Democrat that actually does disagree with the party using violence as a political tool will find themselves the victim of violence or intimidation. That will bring them all in line.

Good news for the US Flags birthday Sept 3, 1777
South Dakota Democratic Party closing its two remaining offices due to lack of funding.

Throwing bottles with chemicals. They seem to be gravitating towards chemical weapons as of late meaning they are looking for more efficient means to inflict death or great bodily harm on others. At some point in time these Communists/fascists will need to be dealt with with extreme prejudice.

Where are our trolls? Surely they should be commenting to defend their brown-shirts. Were not the non-LGBQWXYZ parade participants smirking?

The Portland Police need to take lessons from the Boston PD. This nonsense has got to stop.

@old guy: Oregon, NY and Cali may be just… gone.
You cant save them if from drowning if they kick at you.
The start their brainwashing very early, NY educators think a gifted childs mind is public property….

San Francisco, doo-doo capital of the left coast, is declaring the NRA a domestic terrorist group. This is the extent of their intelligence, so don’t hold out a lot of hope expecting any liberals to suddenly realize what endangers them and dealing with it.

It is correct to condemn political violent groups but the keyword here is plural

The Antifa movement began in the 1960s in Europe, with a belief that the Nazi party would never have been able to come to power in Germany if people had come out to fight them in the streets in the 1920s and 30s. They’ve been in the U.S. since the late 70s but became more aggressive after the protests in Charlettsville.

Their targets are Nazis, KKK, Proud Boys, and other white supremacist groups that take to the streets in rallies that could end up like Charlettsvile and then have a president appeasing the murderer(s).

It is correct to disavow their violence but when you completely ignore those who they fight against, you are actually endorsing the hatred movement of the other side. You’re not even trying to hide behind “some good people” but rather that Antifa is the only one in the wrong.

@Ronald J. Ward: ANTIFA here has nothing to do with anti-fascism. They ARE fascism. They employ fascist tactics in support of a fascist ideology.

They target anything that challenges the socialist left. They target free speech. Attacking “Straight Pride”? Really? They attack anything that compares common sense to leftist socialistic fascism… THEM.

If they could, they should oppose those with whom they disagree with their better ideas instead of violence. Ah, but there’s the rub; they HAVE no better ideas. They have ideas that have failed all over the world and resulted in oppression, famine, war and millions of deaths. So, their only recourse is to try to beat people until they shut up and go away so THEIR better ideas are silenced.

Don’t kid yourself; YOU support ANTIFA violence because you and your degenerate party and ideology have nothing else. Lies and violence; the fascist formula that worked in Italy, Germany, Russia, China, N. Korea, Venezuela and Cuba. The formula for failure and catastrophe.

These are the same Antifa scumbags who claimed the Streets belonged to them these jerks just found out the streets still belonged to the people themselves not to a band of violent prone extremists who are rank cowards who hide their faces with hoods and bandanahs I sure hope they like the jail acomadations

@Ronald J. Ward: Please tell us what makes a white supremist group name some of them. Antifa was a problem before Charlottesville unless you only watched the cable news networks. It sprang from far left university professors pushing the socialist agenda by any means. They were part of the occupy movement. They are welcome to have their voice as long as they do not attack people. You named the proud boys, perhaps you should do a bit of research on the group they are not White supremacists, they march with conservative activists to protect everyones 1st ammendment right of peaceful assembly.
What was Antifa counter protesting with the straight pride parade? Lewd behavior on public streets, as we often see in Gay pride parades, or just you can be proud no matter what you sexual preferences are?
Ron you need to look closer at the behavior of the counter-protestors before condemning those that defend themselves and others from true Facists masked and violent.
Did you read that they intend to use violence? quote “How else are you going to shut them up”
Glad you popped in to express your opinion.


Proud Boys leader Garvin McInnes says there is “not enough violence” these day. That’s not taken out of context as they’ve demonstrated it on several occasions and some have gone to prison over it. You say Antifa “are welcome to have their voice as long as they do not attack people” yet ignore the attacks from Proud Boys on peaceful left protest-on several occasions-where members went to prison-on several occasions.

You also ignore the KKK and Nazis entirely when the simple truth is that if you remove them from the equation along with Proud Boys and white supremacy groups, you also remove Antifa.

You ask me to name white supremacy groups so I wonder if you can read KKK and Nazis. Or are these no longer accepted as racist and white supremacist groups from the right?

The issue here isn’t really right or wrong but rather right or left. This is a rabid hate site that will salute Donald Trump in Heil Trump fashion regardless of anything. Because Antifa has dubbed themselves as the left and PBs, Neo-Nazism, alt-right, KKK, etc have endorsed Trump, that endorsement is welcomed here.

If Trump traveled the country lobbing hand grenades into maturity wards, Curt and Dr. John would be right here to defend Trump while blaming democrats, along with the percentage of Trump’s loyalist.

It’s just who you are and why you cannot condemn racism and violence from the Trump supporting right which validates that point.

@Ronald J. Ward:

This is a rabid hate site that will salute Donald Trump in Heil Trump fashion regardless of anything.

If you have such disdain for this web site, why are you here? You can’ t seem to do anything but promote hatred yourself based on false reporting from left wing sites, like the ones Greggie Goebbels (a certified Socialist) likes to link to. And of course, you use the perfunctory example of the KKK. When was the last time you saw a KKK parade or even read a current news item of their recent actions. Of course, you will never mention the KKK was a Democrat organization.

AntiFa is nothing if it is not a fascist organization that uses violence for one purpose; to instill fear. The last time it encountered the Proud Boys, the Proud Boys had already left the protest area when AntiFa went nuts and did what it does best, destroy the property of others.

What is a “maturity” ward?

Every time you post here you expose that it is you, not others, who is the racist. Your hatred of white Americans is blatant.

@Ronald J. Ward: the Antifa movement began in the ’30s in Weimar Germany, founded by Communists to fight Hitler’s Nazis for control of the state. It was suporessed Hitler came to power.

@Richard McEnroe:

If you have such disdain for this web site, why are you here?

Well, obviously not to join you or to approve of the racism and hatred you sell.

That’s not exactly rocket science.

@Richard McEnroe:

I don’t disagree of earlier origin but as you say, Antifa was pretty much decimated by Hitler and his political machine.

And here we have Fox News, Trump. and obliging hack sites such as FA trying to do the same.

My point is that they seem to be quite happy with the rise of the KKK, Neo-Nazism, the alt-right, and white supremacy in general.

It’s somewhat telling of what they truly support.


Did you read that they intend to use violence? quote “How else are you going to shut them up”

They aren’t bringing hunks of concrete because they are renovating or bottles of pee because they are on their way to their drug tests. They are looking for the opportunity to exert their power over any other free speech. Excusing it, as AJ does, is approving it.

@Ronald J. Ward:

Proud Boys leader Garvin McInnes says there is “not enough violence” these day. That’s not taken out of context as they’ve demonstrated it on several occasions and some have gone to prison over it.

It IS taken out of context. This was in relation to the ANTIFA violence not being met with equal violence. You may live in a truth vacuum, but everyone else doesn’t. You may think your lies can fly under the radar, but they don’t.

yet ignore the attacks from Proud Boys on peaceful left protest-on several occasions-where members went to prison-on several occasions.

Name one. Name one time when ANYONE attacked ANTIFA unprovoked by ANTIFA’s violence. We’ll wait.

You also ignore the KKK and Nazis entirely when the simple truth is that if you remove them from the equation along with Proud Boys and white supremacy groups, you also remove Antifa.

They aren’t violent. They may welcome violence, even desire it, but they are not who goes out and INITIATES violence. ANTIFA does that because they usually have the coverage of some in-the-tank police force, the liberal media and Democrats in office. Just like the Nazis did.

If the Democrats didn’t peddle it by the gross, there would be far less hate. The left nourishes itself on hate and racism.


What is a “maturity” ward?

That’s where they send liberals to rehab after they have made themselves hoarse screaming at the sky.

@Deplorable Me:

You also ignore the KKK and Nazis entirely when the simple truth is that if you remove them from the equation along with Proud Boys and white supremacy groups, you also remove Antifa.

They aren’t violent.

Thank you. That admission really doesn’t warrant any further discussion. Your support and allegiance to the KKK, Nazis, etc no longer is something you and your ilk are simply alluding to.

@Ronald J. Ward:
Antifa is actually a fascist group. When you dress like fascists and conduct yourself as fascists you are a fascist.

They declare ANYONE (conservatives) who don’t agree with their political ideas to be fascists. Thereby justifying violence against ANY conservative. You


I have no idea if you are simply another trolling remake or if something prompted you to appear out of the blue but you seem to be suffering from the same reading comprehensive problems of your comrades.

I have clearly stated more than once that Antifa’s violence should be denounced.

But they simply didn’t become relevant again out of boredom but rather because of the rise of hate groups. With their core belief being that violence in the streets against Hitler may have prevented the Holocaust, they are using that mindset to deter escalating hate groups such as the Proud Boys, KKK, Neo-Nazis, and other white supremacy groups.

Not only is this site giving a pass to the rise of white supremacy, I’m hearing a defense of them, that they aren’t even violent organizations.

Now I realize you’re simply a pawn for distracting purposes but my argument clearly defines what the party of Trump and his water totters have become or perhaps, always were.

@Ronald J. Ward: Is that how you declare your surrender when your stupid, nonsensical, anti-factual argument finally collapses? False accusations and intentionally missing the point… ALL the points?

WHY would I express support for YOUR heritage?

I have no idea if you are simply another trolling remake or if something prompted you to appear out of the blue but you seem to be suffering from the same reading comprehensive problems of your comrades.

Yeah, Dale… didn’t you know you had to get the cowardly, racist liar AJ’s permission to speak? Perhaps you can see why he defends ANTIFA’s violence; you come forth with an opinion different from his and one he doesn’t approve, so you must beg forgiveness. Next thing you know, he will be attributing views and statements to you which you’ve never made in order to try and shore up his own worthless, degenerate positions. Now, you be good now.

@Deplorable Me:

WHY would I express support for YOUR heritage?

Well, we know by definition that ethnicity is the term for the culture of people in a given geographic region, including their language, heritage, religion and customs.

We do know from history that Hitler was on a mission of ethnic cleansing.

And we know that by definition that ethnic cleansing is the systematic forced removal of ethnic, racial and/or religious groups from a given territory by a more powerful ethnic group.

So again from you very own low intellect admission, I don’t assume you or the others here to express support of one’s ethnic background or “heritage” that doesn’t align with yours.

Again, that’s my entire point. And that is why you and yours are protecting the rise of Neo-Nazis, the KKK, the Proud Boys, and other white supremacist hate groups, even defending them as non-violent. And that is why you are adamantly chastising Antifa which seems intent on impeding that progress.

I don’t support ethnic cleansing in any form. Obviously you do. So to answer your question, I knew full well that you and the others here don’t support other heritages.

I just don’t think the rest here are as stupid as you as to come right out and say it.

They are not counter protesters they are protesters.

This was a licensed legal event. Antifa protested.

hundreds of years of we will never stop the fight a couple years of change now its “settled law”?

No 2000 years if faith and 50 years of my life do not change because you said so.

Less then 2% of America does not change our beliefs.

@Ronald J. Ward:

Again, that’s my entire point. And that is why you and yours are protecting the rise of Neo-Nazis, the KKK, the Proud Boys, and other white supremacist hate groups, even defending them as non-violent. And that is why you are adamantly chastising Antifa which seems intent on impeding that progress.

See Dale? This is what I was talking about.

AJ, you moron, there is plenty to criticize and despise about your Klan and Nazis without lying. When you LIE, you merely show you actually don’t have any real knowledge about what you are discussing.

However abhorrent their ideologies are, they have not been violent. However, ANTIFA has been violent from the first moment they appeared and thought if they just put “anti” ahead of their true character, no one would notice the marked similarities between what they were doing and fascism. They’ve had the support of Democrats and any police that can be controlled by Democrats (such as Portland) and while they can commit violence with impunity, your Klan buddies and Nazis have to be more careful with their behavior.

You don’t denounce any of the ANTIFA violence because you fail to address and denounce those that enable it: all those Democrats you grovel at, support and spread your lies for.

Sure, the union prez is pissed now, but come election time he’ll be telling the membership to vote straight D. Including for the idiot Presley.

@Ronald J. Ward: Mc Ginnis hasnt been with Proudboys since Nov of 2018 so well informed are you? KKK is a Democrat creation or are we forgetting the Clanbake or 1924 Democratic National Convention. Nazis are a tiny fringe of freaks that have no real following.
When have the Proudboys ever attacked? They simply end a fight Antifa begins barefisted not masked. Yes leftist Judges have it in for defenders of the 1st amendment, targeted the members
Next time come with facts to back your opinion.


As usual and aside from being larder down with hypocrisy, your rebuttal is inaccurate and irrelevant on every point.

Mc Ginnis hasnt been with Proudboys since Nov of 2018 so well informed are you?

My understanding is that they formed in 2016 so it’s unclear what your point is.

KKK is a Democrat creation or are we forgetting the Clanbake or 1924 Democratic National Convention.

Point noted but, so what? I’m not and I haven’t argued which party supports what or what part of history can be pointed to who. The KKK has a filthy history of racism, murder, violence, and lawlessness. They shouldn’t be given an iota of respect on any stage by any party. Show me a Democrat today that supports Nazism and you’ll draw my condemnation of him/her. This differs considerably from the defense and protection of Nazism we’re seeing from today’s right.

Nazis are a tiny fringe of freaks that have no real following.

The Southern Poverty Law Center reports a 22% rise in neo-nazis hate groups under Trump. Remember, Antifa’s core belief is that the Holocaust may have been prevented had people took to the streets against it prior to Hitler’s rise in power.

When have the Proudboys ever attacked?

In February 2017 atNew York University to give a speech, accompanied by a group of about ten Proud Boys. a fight broke out between Proud Boys and antifa protesters, and the NYPD said that eleven people faced criminal charges. One member of the Proud Boys encouraged others to fight the “faggots wearing black that won’t let us in”, and was later arrested for punching a reporter from DNAinfo.

At the 2017 March 4 Trump rally in Berkeley, California, Kyle Chapman was recorded hitting a counter-protester over the head with a wooden dowel. Images of Chapman went viral, and the Proud Boys organized a crowdfunding campaign for Chapman’s bail after his arrest. After this, McInnes invited Chapman to become involved with the Proud Boys, through which he formed the Fraternal Order of the Alt-Knights.

On April 15, 2017, an alt-right rally was organized in Berkeley by the Liberty Revival Alliance, which did not seek or receive a permit, and was attended by members of the Proud Boys, Identity Evropa (an American neo-Nazi group and Oath Keepers (an anti-government, far-right group; many of these people traveled to Berkeley from other parts of the country. The rally was counter-protested and violence broke out. 21 people were arrested.

In April 2017, a concert organized by the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police to protest Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx attracted several people wearing Proud Boy clothing. One of them, Thomas Christensen, got into an argument with another attendee, and ended up stabbing him with what the prosecutor called a “folding dagger” with a 3 inch blade. Christensen was arrested on charges of aggravated battery and then released on $250,000 bail.

On August 30, 2019, Christensen was tried in a bench trial, where he was found guilty, the judge dismissing Chrsitiansen’s claim that he acted in self-defense, saying “The reaction of the defendant to his interactions and his confrontation, where he was confronted by this rather immature, sophomoric victim, was disproportionate. It was over the top.” Christensen’s bail was revoked and he was incarcerated to await sentencing. After the trial, a friend confirmed that Christiansen was a member of the Proud Boys, which he characterized as a “Pro-American fraternity”. The friend blamed the verdict on Democratic control of Chicago politics.

In 2017 Proud Boys joined a caravan to ride through Islamberg, New York, a community of around twenty black Muslim families who moved upstate to escape the racism and violence of New York City, and which has been a target of conspiracy theories from various Islamophobic hate groups and right-wing terrorist plots.

In 2017 and 2018 Proud Boys participated in several rallies organized by Patriot Prayer in Portland, Oregon and nearby Vancouver, Washington. Scenes of violence from one of these rallies was turned into a sizzle reel for the Proud Boys and was circulated on social media.

On July 1, 2017, five Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members who self-identified as Proud Boys disrupted a protest organized by indigenous activists, in Halifax, Nova Scotia on Canada Day; Halifax had been debating how to deal with statues of Edward Cornwallis, who had placed a bounty for scalps of Mi’kmaq people after they had rebelled against the British. The Proud Boys carried the Canadian Red Ensign flag from the time of Cornwallis and one of them said to the indigenous protesters, “You are recognizing your heritage and so are we.” General Jonathan Vance, the head of the CAF, later stated that the five would be removed from training and duties as the military investigated and reviewed the circumstances surrounding their actions. General Vance also indicated that the members could possibly be released from the CAF permanently. Rear Admiral John Newton, Commander of the Maritime Fleet of the Royal Canadian Navy, was “personally horrified” by the incident and said the Proud Boys were “clearly a white supremacist group and we fundamentally stand opposed to any of their values.”

In June, McInnes disavowed the then-upcoming Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. However, Proud Boys were at the August 2017 alt-right event, which was organized by white supremacist Jason Kessler. Kessler had joined the Proud Boys some time before organizing the event. McInnes said he had kicked Kessler out after his views on race had become clear. After the rally, Kessler accused McInnes of using him as a “patsy” and said: “You’re trying to cuck and save your own ass.” Alex Michael Ramos, one of the men convicted for the assault of DeAndre Harris which took place at the rally, was associated with the Proud Boys and Fraternal Order of Alt-Knights.[92]

In October 2018 McInnes gave a talk at the Metropolitan Republican Club on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. He stepped out of his car wearing glasses with Asian eyes drawn on the front and pulled a samurai sword out of its sheath. Police forced him inside. Later, inside the event, McInnes and an Asian member of the Proud Boys re-enacted the 1960 murder of Inejiro Asanuma, the leader of the Japanese Socialist Party; a captioned photograph of the actual murder had become a meme in alt-right social media. The audience for the event was described by The New York Times as “a cross-section of New York’s far-right subculture: libertarians, conspiracy theorists and nationalists who have coalesced around their opposition to Islam, feminism and liberal politics.”

Anti-fascist activists had started protesting outside the club before the event and had reportedly engaged in vandalism. Following cross-provocations between both opposing sides, a protester threw a bottle at Proud Boys, resulting in a fight. NYC police present at the protest reportedly did not respond.

On November 21, shortly after news broke that the FBI had classified the Proud Boys as an extremist group with ties to white nationalists — a claim later disavowed by an FBI official, who said they only intended to characterize the potential threat of some members of the group — McInnes said that his lawyers had advised him that quitting might help the nine members being prosecuted for the incidents in October and he said “this is 100% a legal gesture, and it is 100% about alleviating sentencing”, and said it was a “stepping down gesture, in quotation marks”.

The fallout from the incident left the group in internal disarray. After McInnes nominally left the group, the “Elder Chapter” of the group reportedly assumed control. Jason Lee Van Dyke, the group’s lawyer, was appointed as the chapter’s chairman. Van Dyke was previously known for suing news media and anti-fascist activists for reporting on the group, and for making violent online threats with racist language. The group then publicly released its new bylaw online, with the names of its “Elder Chapter” members listed and redacted. The redaction was later discovered to be botched, as the list of names can be accessed by selecting over the black bar of the released document. A day later, the chapter announced that Van Dyke was no longer leader of the group, and Enrique Tarrio is the group’s new chairman.

Arrests and prosecutions of Proud Boys in connection with incident
Video evidence from three separate videos showed conclusively that the Proud Boys has instigated the fight after the Metropolitan Republican Club event. John Miller, New York City’s deputy police commissioner for intelligence and counterterrorism, said that “incidents like [the post-MRC fight] make it more likely” that the Proud Boys would be “higher on the radar” of authorities.

Ten men connected to the Proud Boys were arrested in connection with the October 2018 incident. Seven Proud Boys pleaded guilty to various charges including riot, disorderly conduct and attempted assault. Two of the men who accepted plea deals were sentenced to five days of community service and did not receive jail time. In August 2019, two of the Proud Boys, Maxwell Hare and John Kinsman, were convicted following a jury trial of attempted gang assault, attempted assault and riot; the jury deliberated a day and a half of deliberations before rejecting their claims of self-defense.[98] The final defendant is awaiting trial.

The four anti-fascist victims of the beating are not cooperating with prosecutors, even to the extent of revealing their identities, and are known only as “Shaved Head”, “Ponytail”, “Khaki” and “Spiky Belt”. Because of their non-cooperation, the Proud Boys could not be charged with assault – which requires evidence of injury – and were instead charged with riot and attempted assault, which merely require an attempt to cause injury. Without the victims to testify, the bulk of the evidence in the trial came from videos of the incident, including footage shot by a video documentarian, and video from security cameras.

Threat to Portland mayor
In January 2019, Reggie Axtell, a member of the Proud Boys, threatened Ted Wheeler, Portland, Oregon’s Democratic mayor, in a Facebook video post. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, Axtell said in the video that Wheeler’s “days are fucking numbered … I promise you this, Ted Wheeler: I’m coming for you, you little punk.” Axtell also said that he would “unmask every [anti-fascist] son of a bitch that I come across”, referring to a campaign initiated by Patriot Prayer leader Joey Gibson, Proud Boy Tusitala “Tiny” Toese and former Proud Boy Russell Schultz to tear off the bandanas of anti-fascist (antifa) demonstrators and taking pictures of their faces, thereby “demasking” them. The announcement of the campaign came shortly after an altercation that took place when Proud Boys and Patriot Prayer members attempted and failed to invade a chapter meeting of the left-wing organization Democratic Socialists of America. The groups clashed with anti-fascist activists nearby after being denied entry to the meeting, and claimed to be attacked.

Connection with Roger Stone
Roger Stone, the long-time informal advisor to Donald Trump has close connections to the Proud Boys. According to University of Nevada researcher Samantha Kutner, during Gavin McInnes’ time as head of the group, Stone was “one of only three approved media figures allowed to speak” about the group. A photo of Stone, Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson and two Proud Boys in the Fox News greenroom was posted by Stone on Instagram in May 2018.

In February 2018, the Proud Boys posted a video on Facebook which they described as Stone undergoing a “low-level initiation” into the group. As part of the initiation, Stone says “Hi, I’m Roger Stone. I’m a Western chauvinist. I refuse to apologize for creating the modern world,” making him a “first-degree” member, which Kutner characterizes as being a “sympathizer”. Stone denies being a member of the group.

Stone has used members of the Proud Boys as his personal bodyguards. In March 2018, when Stone attended the Republican Dorchester Conference near Salem, Oregon, he was concerned about his safety and used members of the Proud Boys to be his private security; Stone was photographed with the Proud Boys members. In September 2018, Stone was escorted to and from the right-wing Mother of All Rallies by Proud Boys. Stone says that the Proud Boys are “volunteers” and are necessary due to the number of death threats he has received.

In late January 2019, when Stone was arrested by the FBI on seven criminal counts in connection with the Mueller investigation, Enrique Tarrio, the chairman of the Proud Boys, was there to meet Stone when he left the courthouse in Florida. Tarrio, who wore a “Roger Stone Did Nothing Wrong” t-shirt — sold by a company owned by Tarrio — told a local TV reporter that the indictment was nothing but “trumped-up charges”, and was later seen visiting Stone’s house. The next day, in Washington D.C., a small number of Proud Boys demonstrated outside the courthouse where Stone pled “Not guilty” to the charges, carrying “Roger Stone did nothing wrong” signs and others that promoted the InfoWars conspiracy website. The Proud Boys got into an argument with anti-Stone hecklers[104][4][105]

Although Gavin McInnes has supposedly cut his ties with the Proud Boys in November 2018, stepping down as chairman, in February 2019 he filed suit against the Southern Poverty Law Center over their designation of the Proud Boys as a “general hate” group. The defamation suit was filed in federal court in Alabama. In the papers filed, McInnes claimed that the hate group designation is false and motivated by fund-raising concerns and that his career has been damaged by it. The SPLC says on its website that “McInnes plays a duplicitous rhetorical game: rejecting white nationalism and, in particular, the term ‘alt-right’ while espousing some of its central tenets,” and that the group’s “rank-and-file [members] and leaders regularly spout white nationalist memes and maintain affiliations with known extremists. They are known for anti-Muslim and misogynistic rhetoric. Proud Boys have appeared alongside other hate groups at extremist gatherings like the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville”.[31][106] One of the lawyers representing him is Ronald Coleman. The suit alleges “tortious interference with economic advantage, defamation, false light invasion of privacy and aiding and abetting employment discrimination”.

The day after filing the suit McInnes announced that he had been re-hired by the Canadian far-right media group The Rebel Media.
In February 2019, Slate magazine reported that Square, Chase Paymentech, and PayPal had pulled their payment processing services from, an online far-right merchandise site associated with the Proud Boys. lists itself as a project of Fund the West LLC, a Miami business registered to Henry Tarrio. In the past, Enrique Tarrio, the chairman of Proud Boys, has claimed that he is the “business owner” of, raising the probability that “Henry Tarrio” and “Enrique Tarrio” are the same person. Henry Tarrio is also the registered owner of “Proudboys LLC”, which uses the same address as Fund the West.

May 2019 Federal lawsuit
On May 17, 2019, Bill Burke of Ohio filed a $3 million lawsuit against the Proud Boys, Kessler, and multiple other people and groups associated with the Unite the Right rally. Burke was seriously injured in the August 2017 Charlottesville car attack which followed the event. The 64-page initial complaint alleges that the named parties “conspired to plan, promote and carry out the violent events in Charlottesville”. According to Burke, his physical and mental injuries have led to “severe psychological and emotional suffering”.

“Demand Free Speech” rally
A Proud Boys rally called “Demand Free Speech”, scheduled to take place on Saturday, July 6, 2019 in Washington, D.C., was reported to be “rocked by scandal” when Omar Navarro – a “perennial” Republican challenger to take Maxine Waters’ Congressional seat from the long-time Democratic Congressperson – withdrew from speaking at the event, tweeting that his ex-girlfriend DeAnne Lorraine had been using cocaine and having sex with members of the Proud Boys. Lorraine, who calls herself a MAGA relationship expert, was also charged by Navarro with threatening him. In response to Navarro’s tweets, the Proud Boys issued a video featuring former Infowars staff member Joe Biggs and Ethan Nordean – the star of a viral video showing him beating up an antifa protester – in which they “banished” Navarro from the Proud Boys. The group has described themselves as “pro-drugs”. Other speakers who had been schedule for the rally, including Pizzagate promoters Mike Cernovich and Jack Posobiec, had already cancelled their appearances, for reasons not apparently related to Navarro’s charges.

The rally itself, in Washington’s Freedom Plaza and Pershing Park, drew 250 people. Proud Boy founder MacInnes appeared in fake handcuffs, symbolizing the bans that the Proud Boys and other far-right and alt-right groups have received from social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. Laura Loomer appeared, as did Milo Yiannopoulos dressed in drag, but former Trump advisor Roger Stone did not show up, and Jacob Wohl said on the day of the rally that he would not be there. A counter-protest-cum-dance party across the street drew more people than the main rally. Police said there were only minor skirmishes between the far-right ralliers and Antifa protestors, and no arrests were made.

Menacing critics
In July 2019, it was reported that on several occasions Proud Boys had gone to the homes of their critics and menaced them. In June 2018, Vic Berger, who posts videos online mocking far-right figures, including Proud Boy founder Gavin McInnes, was visited at his home by a Proud Boy who told him that “You’re really hurting the Proud Boys. You need to stop making these videos.” Berger later came into possession of an internal Proud Boy document which called for Proud Boys to find the addresses of their opponents and those of their relatives and “SHOW THEM THERE ARE CONSEQUENCES!!!” Then, on June 29, 2019, a group of Proud Boys showed up at 11 p.m. at the Philadelphia home of Gwen Snyder, who tracks the movements of the Proud Boys. Snyder wasn’t home at the time, so the group spoke to a neighbor, telling them that Snyder needed to stop posting on Twitter the names of Proud Boys and other information about them; “You tell that fat bitch she better stop”, one of the group allegedly said. Snyder reported the threat to the Philadelphia police, giving them security camera footage of the incident. Prior to the menacing of Snyder, an anonymous Proud Boy posted on Telegram, an encrypted Russian messaging app, a comment which called for action against “Philly’s biggest shit stains.”

Taunting soccer fans
After Major League Soccer (MLS) ruled that the Emerald City Supporters (ECS), anti-fascist fans of the Seattle Sounders Football Club, could not the fly the flag of the 1930’s anti-Nazi Iron Front paramilitary group at Sounders’ matches, eleven members of the Proud Boys met the group of about 100 people as they marched into the stadium on August 4, 2019 to taunt and yell expletives at them. There was additional police coverage, with the only incident occurring when the Proud Boys attempted to enter a bar which is a known place for ECS members to gather. The MLS had categorized the Iron Front flag as “political imagery”, which is forbidden under league rules, however a number of groups in Seattle and elsewhere are challenging the League’s ruling.

“End Domestic Terrorism” rally
Main article: End Domestic Terrorism rally
The Proud Boys and radio talk show host and former InfoWars staff member Joe Biggs organized a demonstration held in Portland on August 17, 2019 which members of numerous far-right groups attended. The rally, which was sometimes subtitled “Better Dead Than Red”, was intended to promote the idea that the “antifa” anti-fascist movement should be classified as “domestic terrorism”. It received national attention, including a Tweet from President Donald Trump.The event drew more counter-demonstrators than participants – with at least one group urging its members in advance not to attend – and ended with the Proud Boys requesting a police escort to leave.

And yes, that’s lifted from Wikipedia which I don’t proclaim to be taken as gospel but you can review the sources there and find an overall accuracy. The Proud Boys are as the FBI says, a terrorist group, and as the non-partisan Political Research Associates, a violent hate-group.

Next time come with facts to back your opinion.

That’s pretty damn rich coming from someone who came naked. What possible facts would you accept as facts? Trump has pretty much instructed you and your cohorts here to denounce anything that disagrees with his agenda as fake news. And you know damn well you have no alternative but to comply.

Political Research Associates

@Ronald J Ward:

Show me a Democrat today that supports Nazism and you’ll draw my condemnation of him/her.

Your entire party supports a police state, anti-Semitism, socialism and fascist tactics. Sounds pretty Nazi to me.

Once again, you stupidly shoot your own argument full of holes. All your examples include leftists showing up and THEN violence erupts. Just as we’ve said. Whatever their ideology, people have the right to speak and protest. You and your ANTIFA thugs don’t believe in that, so they are encouraged to show up and silence the opposition. While the message of some is abhorrent to most Americans, the message ANTIFA supports and spreads (socialism, violence, intimidation, suppression or rights, racism) is no better than their cousins, the Klan.

@Deplorable Me:

I get that an open racist and promoter of violence towards anyone other than white republicans would say that.

@Ronald J Ward: Would they? How would you know? You don’t seem to know much.

For instance, when some people are peacefully demonstrating and a group of thugs show up and initiate violence, the violence is not the fault of the peaceful demonstrators simply because they dared to exist. Likewise, the fact that all you whiny, lying, cowardly liberals are apoplectic over Trump being President is not Trump’s fault; it is YOURS because that is the way YOU chose to behave. You not only have an intelligence problem, but you also have a behavior problem. It’s why you accept, promote, condone and excuse fascist thugs committing violence in the name of your decadent, decrepit, amoral, socialist, racist, anti-Semitic ideology.

@kitt: Learn to spell!! Better yet, learn to talk. What the hell are you even complaining about idiot. You Leftists are the brown shirts. Always dividing people, and purposely talking nonsense, with no actual future. Always looking for handouts. As Morgan Freeman (a Genius actor, and an intellect who uses his mind) said, when a black journalist asked him if he believed that racism keeps blacks from achieving success. He said, you, and I are proof that you can achieve anything you use your mind towards. All these BLACK celebrities walking around with millions while telling the young black kids they will not make it because the “police, or the government, or whoever, Batman” is out to get you!!! All these black athletes paid millions. The problem is, people are not chained physically, but mentally. As long as you believe you are hated, or people are out to get you, then you are destroying your own future!! The conservatives believe in hard work, and values, unlike the liberals who have encouraged the 27% of white women having babies out of wedlock, and being single mothers. The 50% of black women, or how about, Hispanics who have a much higher number. We don’t care what your ethnicity is, or color. Race has nothing to do with color anyways. Look at Vanna White, who looks Caucasian, but is Hispanic because of her Puerto Rican roots. You would know these things if you had an actual education. The college liberals of today are horrible in history, and ideology. They listen to someone, and that is it, that person is the flavor of the month. Not to mention half of the youth are passive, and on every anti depressant known to man!!! All you can say is, “Your racist” because you cannot justify your shortcomings, and no aspirations in life. You have to blame others for your failures. Grow up. This country gives minorities scholarships, and so many advantages above the Caucasian man. You just don’t take advantage of them. This country is not racist. You believe it is racist. Yes, you have people here, and there who hate certain races, and you cannot change it. You have to respect them, if you want someone to respect you. People antagonizing others like Al Con man Sharpton, who use race to ruin the minds of the young who believe garbage. Incidents happen, but, statistically, Caucasian men are murdered more then blacks. So, before repeating what these horrible “actors” in Hollywood today say, do your research. If it were not for the Conservatives you would not have charities, nor taxes for welfare collecting lazy, immigrants, who come here to EXPLOIT this country, not EMBRACE it. You base your political beliefs on your stupid sexual preferences. Well, here is the thing, our founding fathers would be rolling in their graves seeing what idiots are in this country!! The GOLDEN ERA of Hollywood were all conservatives. Today, no one even knows any of the actors unless they cause chaos. Rappers who write lyrics about shooting law abiding cops. Obviously if your part of a gang, police will target you. These ARE NOT ROLE MODELS!!! We conservatives don’t endorse public aid because we want you to work for yourself, and not be handicapped, and dependent on the state, the government which makes minorities handicapped, and encourages you to be dependent!! Needy on them, which is what they want you to be. They want you to be lazy, and even though they tell you that you think freely, you are at their mercy, and as I said before. The physical chains are gone, but you are mentally dependent. Sorry to burst your bubble, but, many cops are Hispanic, and Black. Racism exists in your mind, and no where else. When have you had Caucasians come up to you, and stop you from breathing because of your color? or race? More black on black happens, more Hispanics killing young Hispanics. Caucasians don’t put guns in your hands. You make wrong decisions all on your own. I am sorry, but many focused young black men, and Hispanic men focus, and make the right decisions in life, even though they are surrounded by challenges. Just like many Caucasian men make wrong choices, even though they are given advantages. It all comes down to you. Don’t blame others for your own misery!! You create the hell your in!! Let’s ask your celebrity friends to come save you. You would never catch them in your neighborhoods, like a good Christian who will come into your neighborhoods, and make sure you had donations of clothes, and food, even though they don’t believe in encouraging laziness. Why would you not want you to succeed. The liberals don’t because that way, you can be dependent on them!!!


: Learn to spell!! Better yet, learn to talk.

Don’t criticize anyone else when you seem to lack any intellect when it comes to writing showing you apparently don’t understand punctuation and paragraph forming.

Anyone reading your diatribe got no further than the first two sentences.

@retire05: I stopped at “Blah, blah, blah.”
