Proud Boy Arrested On Six Felony Charges In Portland





Forbes:
Quote:
The morning after President Trump gave a shoutout to the Proud Boys at the first presidential debate, a member of the controversial right-wing group was arrested in Portland, Oregon, on 12 charges, including multiple felonies for assault and unlawful use of a weapon, and misdemeanors for pointing a firearm at another person, menacing and the unlawful use of tear gas.
Guess they''ll await a pardon if the punishment is too stiff.

btw they've adapted Trumps' words into their logo:




@NikkiMcR
Trump told the Proud Boys to "stand by" and it looks like they were watching

I know who the AntiFA and BLM monkeys are, but who, in the name of Zeus's butthole, are the Proud Boys?

They're the latest boogeyman to distract from the THOUSANDS of acts of violence by the Left...

There a loony rightwing organization of a few hundred people, but the media is making them out to be the leading force of the Republican Party...

This is usual fanfare...

10,000 acts of Leftwing violence doesn't represent anyone from the Left, while 10 acts of Rightwing violence represents every Republican whoever lived...

Ah yes comrade, the Wikipedia entry you so helpfully linked smears the Proud Boys as white supremacists and ultra nationalists. But the president of the organization is an American of Afrocuban descent. In addition the Miami leader of the organization is a Latino who in a Univision interview mostly in Spanish described the Proud Boys as a drinking club with a politics problem.

In the Presidential debate Chris Wallace insisted President Trump denounce white supremacists ignoring the numerous times he'd already done so. Trump asked who would you like me to denounce? JOE BIDEN suggested the Proud Boys. Trump responded by telling them to stand down and stand by. It was Joe Biden smearing the Proud Boys.


Of course Chris Wallace never asked Biden to account for his racist remarks

The Wikipedia link Salty posted gives the left-wing's view of the Proud Boys.You can learn more accurate info about them from their own website:

Quote:
Core Values Of The Proud Boys

Minimal Government
Maximum Freedom
Anti-Political Correctness
Anti-Drug War
Closed Borders
Anti-Racial Guilt
Anti-Racism
Pro-Free Speech (1st Amendment)
Pro-Gun Rights (2nd Amendment)
Glorifying the Entrepreneur
Venerating the Housewife
Reinstating a Spirit of Western Chauvinism

Though these are our central tenets, all that is required to become a Proud Boy is that a man declare he is “a Western chauvinist who refuses to apologize for creating the modern world.” We do not discriminate based upon race or sexual orientation/preference. We are not an “ism”, “ist”, or “phobic” that fits the Left’s narrative. We truly believe that the West Is The Best and welcome those who believe in the same tenets as us. https://proudboysusa.com/tenets/
Some uneducated claim the Proud Boys is a white supremacist group. Its leader is an Afro-Cuban man, so that disproves their false narrative.

From what I understand they are a anti-leftwing nonsense group that goes around to different protests to counter leftwing violence. The left likes to fraudulently paint them as a white supremacist group.Kind of hard for a group with 10-20 percent minority membership to be white supremacists.
