Proud Boys try to spread terror from coast to coast

From the article:

THE PROUD Boys showed once again this month that violence and hate is at the heart of their organization—and that the left can’t let them go unopposed.
On October 13, in Portland, Oregon, the group’s thugs targeted mourning activists at a memorial for Patrick Kimmons, a Black man murdered by the Portland police, and then roamed the city’s downtown, looking for fights....

THE NEWS coverage during and after the event betrayed a clear anti-left bias from both the media and police officers themselves.
Republicans expressed horror at the “violent leftists” who targeted their stately midtown club with graffiti, a broken window and a note telling the club that it was “on notice” for inviting McInnes.
Yet it was the Metropolitan Republican Club that was guilty of provocation—by inviting a speaker whose explicit goal is to employ violence against political opponents. The invitation itself betrays the hard-right drift of a club that in past years wouldn’t have entertained the idea of associating itself with the Proud Boys, but has now openly embraced them.

As the GOP becomes more open in its longstanding embrace of racism, it is important that we all confront them.

1. "BOYS" is the accurate level of their maturity and ability to reason.

I was facing their hostility and witnessed how they incited violence at an Impeach tRump rally in San Diego and the sheriffs stood around and watched like spectators! Instead of flipping them off I gave them the "peace" sign and smiled...which pisses them off since they can't get a rise out of you. None of the anti-tRump people were lured into being involved with their BS taunting.

2. And their leader is a millionaire.

The day before, the hate group was at the center of an event with multimillionaire founder Gavin McInnes at the Metropolitan Republican Club in Manhattan. Afterward, McInnes’ thugs also went out looking for a fight.



Permanently angry, racist, and immature. The prototype of the Trump voter.

5. They are a domestic terrorist organization. Bin Laden had a ton of his own money

and so do American terrorists' leaders. The Orange One resembles Bin Laden more and more each day. He encourages his cult to preserve their shared "ideals" and hate. The terrorists are victims of an increasingly unfair world that is so cruel to them...poor, poor white men never get a break.

4. And Trump is the epitome of the GOP voter in 2018.

Racist, violent, and unapologetic.

9. Your opening line is funny, given that:

The Proud Boys use hazing and other rituals to induct new members into the group, attempting to build up a sense of belonging and loyalty. The bizarre rules include yelling out the names of cereals as fellow Proud Boys beat the young recruit, getting a tacky tattoo of the organization’s name, and refraining from self-stimulation.


So all of this "refraining" is causing them to channel their energy outward.
