Proud Boys Street Gang Had A Weekend Of Coast-To-Coast Violence
The Proud Boys ― a pro-Trump fraternity known for acts of violence ― started their outburst of violence on Friday night, immediately after members left an event headlined by their leader, Vice co-founder Gavin McInnes, at the Metropolitan Republican Club, the GOP’s headquarters in New York City.
Footage shot by video journalist Sandi Bachom shows a group of Proud Boys setting upon three anti-fascist protesters on a street on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, then beating them on the ground while screaming homophobic slurs.
“Do you feel brave now, fa ggot?” one of the attackers yelled, according to two journalists on the scene. Another video shows multiple attackers yelling “fa ggot.”
