A related news article.

https://www.newsweek.com/ilhan-omar-...d-boys-1454613
Out of curiosity I visited the proud boys website. They state themselves that there are two qualifications for members, one is to be a man (they have separate female auxiliary) and to love western culture. They also state that membership is open to all races and religions. That does not sound racist. What it is however is pro western civilization and unapologetic for western history. I guess that is why they are labeled white nationalists by the left. They are also very upfront about their in your face defiance of leftists. My biggest issue with what I saw iof them is some vulgarity on T shirts they sell. As far as aggressively confronting the enemy leftists I say thumbs up I saw nothing to support the idea that they are racist...they have black members in pics I saw. I have seen no Nazi flags or other nonsense like that. Of course I spent 5 minutes looking into this so I could be wrong. Now Antfa..... they are racist and communist in their nature....a true terrorist group.

I seem to remember that one initiation is that you have to get pushed around (or 'beat up') by the members while you name five breakfast cereals.

I think it's mostly a finely honed poking thing designed by Gavin McGinnes to hassle the new, crazy left.

This is a Proud Boys organized event. They’re not “security”.

One of the groups pulled out. Hopefully this is all just a big nothingburger.

“In addition to the Proud Boys and Three Percenters, the white nationalist American Guard also said it would have members in Portland.

The Oath Keepers, another far-right militia group, said in a statement they were pulling out of the rally because organizers have not done enough to keep white supremacist groups away.

“It would be best for the patriot/conservative cause if this August 17 rally were simply canceled,” the group’s founder, Stewart Rhodes, wrote”

3 ANTIFA arrested. No Proud Boys or anyone with red, white and blue on, arrested.
