LOL Proud boys sounds like a group advocating equal rights for gay men

Donald Trump had urged the Proud Boys to “stand back and stand by” 

Trump attracted the vilest elements of US society. Far right, white supremacist groups present the greatest danger to US society and the republic in general.

It's doubtful many Republicans will speak out against these groups. The Republican Party bosses know they can only win fair elections in areas they've gerrymandered. For Republicans to win the WH they need to keep far right groups and Qanon wacks under their umbrella. And continue to get social media support from 'foreign' government paid keyboard warriors.

It's embarassing that Canada can see straight and do the right thing. But we are still wallowing with some Republican politicians still,,,even still...are touting the "stop the steal" nonsense.

I would suspect a high percentage of them are.

Yet no word on Antifa which are currently destroying Portland and Seattle daily.

Because:

a) They're not

b) The article is about the murderous terrorist incel group, the proud boys

Antifascism didn't just appear overnight. It's a reaction to, you know, racists/fascists/anti-Semites etc. It's been around for generations. Not sure why the far right don't seem to understand this.

The founder of the group told members they should not go to the rally, he suspected something bad was going to happen.

But the current leader of the group happens to be an FBI informant. I suspect he was up to no good, setting up some of the members.

It's quite true P Smith. Crazy world, isn't it? But he was just one of the leaders, not THE leader and he was still arrested for his part in the insurrection.

just because many of them are gay or BDSM doesn’t take away the fact they are violent thugs. Don’t blame homosexuality for their behavior.

The Canadian government designated the Proud Boys group as a terrorist entity on Wednesday, noting they played a pivotal role in the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Jan 6.

Political persecution based based on fake accusations. Canada under Trudeau is increasingly behaving like a Banana republic.
