'Proud Boys' Brutally Beat Three Protesters and NYPD Refused to Arrest Them

Last week, a radical far-right group calling themselves the Proud Boys gathered at the New York Republican Party's headquarters in New York City to hear the group's founder, Gavin McInnes, speak.

After the event, Proud Boys members were walking down a street when a protester appeared to knock a red MAGA hat off of the head of one Proud Boy. The group descended on two or three individuals; a video shows them repeatedly kicking the protesters while shouting slurs. Soon after, police appeared on the scene and the Proud Boys casually walked away without officers stopping them.

Over the weekend, another radical far-right group known as Patriot Prayer, alongside the Proud Boys, held a rally in Portland, Oregon. There, even more violent clashes occurred, lasting as long as three hours according to local police.

Ahead of the rally in NYC, political graffiti was discovered outside the venue set to host McInnes. New York Republican Party Chairman Ed Cox described this as "political violence." He, and the rest of the leadership in the Republican Party, have been conspicuously silent in the aftermath of the recent violence.

The Southern Poverty Law Center has labeled the Proud Boys a hate group for their racist and jingoist rhetoric.

The Proud Boys are so horrible, they've been banned from Twitter, the social media platform most likely NOT to censor anyone, even hate groups.
