The Proud Boys is admittedly on the extreme-far-right fringe of the patriot movement but despite their over their top rhetoric, they have managed to stay calm and collected. There is no doubt that they’re just itching for violent action but that doesn’t mean that the lies the media is telling about them are justified.
The whole controversy proves exactly why we need professional law enforcement patrolling our streets instead of amateurs but if the pros won’t do it, the vigilantes will.
Two factions in the Proud Boys
The Proud Boys are undoubtedly a far-right patriot organization and they passionately fight for Truth, Justice, and the American way in social media and at protest rallies, hell bent on defending “western civilization.”
For the most part, that means standing up for the American Constitution by exercising their Second Amendment rights to own and bear weapons.
Newsweek and other members of the liberal media, offended by people who still treat the Constitution as a valid document, have zeroed in on a radical far-right wing of the already far-right Proud Boys, called the Fraternal Order of Alt-Knights.
They are guilty as charged by Newsweek of being “ready to openly embrace racism, dropping any pretenses of wanting support of non-white people.” That doesn’t mean that other patriot groups agree with them.
The Proud Boys were tired of being physically attacked by Antifa supporting members of the Black Lives Matter movement so they turned to some of their more aggressive members to provide some security. If BLM wanted to scuffle, then the boys were ready to scuffle back with their own “tactical defense arm.”
Nasty and ignorant things
Kyle Chapman, the founder of those defense forces, is well documented saying some nasty and ignorant racist things which educated conservatives condemn completely. The Proud Boys disagree with most of the hard-core racist rhetoric, but this fight is about free speech too.
The Constitution is the thing that matters. As long as the bigots continue to act within their lawful bounds, their blatant racism is overlooked in the ranks.
These radicals do not have the support of the vast majority of patriots, and nobody can deny that they advocate improper offensive violence. That’s exactly why we need legitimate law enforcement on the streets of America.
Some of the do-it-your-selfers are going to get out of hand. The proud boys aren’t the only organized or dis-organized patriots ready to take the law into their own hands.
The main Proud Boys organization may be a lot more radical than most patriot groups, but so far, they have stayed on the right side of the law.
For all their bluster and trash talk, they remain totally focused on defense of the Constitution and their Second Amendment rights. They can’t wait to go kick Antifa a$$ but they haven’t started dragging them out of their cars and beating them yet.
