they actually start the violence and try to video it in such a way as to make themselves look the victims.
Quite thee snowflakes.

It appears the FBI is grossly misinformed. McInness hasn't been leader for almost a year. Proud Boys are not a white supremacist group.

https://heavy.com/news/2018/11/enrique-tarrio/


Enrique Tarrio has succeeded Gavin McInnes as the leader of the Proud Boys. Tarrio, 34, confirmed his ascension to the top of the Proud Boy ranks in an interview with Heavy.com. The new leader said, “Yes, I am the new chairman of the Proud Boys International.”


https://www.washingtontimes.com/news...nt-white-supr/

Wilfred Reilly, associate professor of political science at Kentucky State University, said Wednesday that “the Proud Boys aren’t white supremacists,” describing the right-wing group’s beliefs as “Western chauvinist” and noting that their international chairman, Enrique Tarrio, is Black.

snip...

Mr. Reilly said that about 10% to 20% of Proud Boys activists are people of color, a diverse racial composition that is “extremely well-known in law enforcement,” based on his research.

I find it telling that Salty is unaware of rioting, looting and the burning of some of our major cities by the left, but is some kind of expert on an obscure right wing group that most people have never heard about. Makes me wonder.

Here’s Why the Mainstream Media Ignored the Proud Boys/Black Lives Matter Press Conference

Quote:
On Wednesday, local leaders of the Proud Boys in Salt Lake City held a joint news conference with the leader of the local Black Lives Matter chapter to publicly “denounce white supremacy,” after the Proud Boys were mentioned during the first presidential debate. It was a show of solidarity and a repudiation of the notion that the right-wing group comprises white supremacists.

“I will go out and say that the Proud Boys as a whole — I will say this on behalf of the entire national organization — denounce White supremacy,” said Thad, the leader of the Proud Boys’ Utah chapter. “We are in no way, shape, or form White supremacists,” he continued. “We have a vetting system that gets those people out of our hair. We do not have anything to do with White supremacy. We do not have anything to do with the Ku Klux Klan. We denounce those organizations.”

One of the Proud Boys’ other leaders named Seth echoed Thad’s sentiments. “I don’t care what color your skin is, we’re all Americans, and we need to find a way to come together instead of divide,” he told reporters.

Jacarri Kelley, the leader of the Black Lives Matter Northern Utah chapter, argued that Americans of all political stripes must be willing to have conversations with one another even if they disagree. “We do need to be able to reach across the aisle and have these tough conversations,” Ms. Kelley said. She stated that she had met with the Proud Boys leaders in Portland, Oregon and that they engaged in a “productive conversation.”

As of this writing, this story has been covered by local news outlets, but not a single national news organization has reported on the press conference. It is not difficult to discern the reason why they are ignoring this story, of course. Ever since the group came up in the presidential debate, the corporate press has been painting the Proud Boys as a white supremacist organization without ever bothering to speak with members of the group to get their side of the story.

But it is not the Proud Boys who are the target of the media. Portraying them as white nationalists bent on promoting white supremacy is the tactic establishment media outlets are using to attack the President as Election Day draws near. Their strategy is to convince the public that when Trump told the Proud Boys to “stand back” and “stand by,” he gave them covert orders as if he were somehow running the group.

Any real coverage of the press conference would throw a monkey wrench into their plans as would showing the public that the Proud Boys have a significant number of minorities in their ranks. The fact that the organization’s leader is Latino doesn’t help, either.

It mattesr very little whether the facts exist that the "Proud Boys" is not a white supremacist group. The accusations have been made and validated by our honorable media talking heads.

No wonder the left is going after the PB's They are against everything on that list. People that like that list are the enemy to their progressive world order.

And you know that how? You were there? Or is this just what you like to believe?

So now a black guy is the leader of a White Supremist group? WTF?

I think Dave Chappelle did a skit about this, but the black leader he was playing was blind and didn't know he was black.

When he found out he was black, he divorced his wife for being a n*gger lover. It was on a hilarious episode of The Chapelle Show.

What I find truly chilling is that there have been over 700 riot related arrests in Portland, but the only one Salt cares about is this one. Anyone, irregardless of their political persuasion committing willful violence against people or property should be condemned. That Salt, won't, or can't, says much about her mental processes.

It was kind of you to attribute Salt with "mental processes".
