Proud Boys is a multi-racial patriotic group not at all akin to how it is described in mainstream media.
Founder Gavin McInnes is resigned to making Joe Biden retract his erroneous words during the recent presidential debate.
McInnes says of Biden, “He is senile. The man is mentally weak.”
He goes on to lament that people are “incapable of nuance” so they fall back on lazy thinking and gross generalizations that are inaccurate and mis-characterize.
McInnes says the Proud Boys are against a lot of the changes that have redefined America in recent decades.
McInnes says, “We’re actually kind of left wing, in a sense. We’re very socially liberal. We don’t care who’s gay. We obviously don’t care about race. We’re against the drug war. We think that’s a waste of time. We want to end all that. We don’t like the prison culture. But we don’t like welfare.
“We’re very pro free speech. We’re very pro Second Amendment. We think that if everyone has a gun there’ll be a lot less crime, as John Lock has pointed out.”
“And more importantly, we’re a men’s club. We’re proud of masculinity. This was not even a question from the beginning of America up until the 80s with whatever it was with that second wave of feminism and Gloria Steinem and then men’s clubs were gone. Fred and Barney used to go to the Water Buffalo’s Club. Ralph Cramden from the Honeymooners had his club with the raccoon tails. All men had clubs. That was fine.”
“Then that became verboten and masculinity became toxic. And now we have in cells, and porn and this disdain for the American family.”
“We’re pro family. Pro-black family. Pro white family. Pro patriarchy. And that has become a sin.”
Being pro black family puts them at odds with Black Lives Matter, which is opposed to the nuclear family that they have committed to destroying.
Since it holds positions contrary to Black Lives Matter, no wonder it is derided from the left.
