2 Proud Boys Sentenced To 4 Years In Prison Over Gang Assault In New York

Two members of the extremist street gang known as the  Proud Boys  were sentenced Tuesday to four years in a New York prison after attacking protesters outside a GOP event in Manhattan last year.

Maxwell Hare, 27, and John Kinsman, 32, were two of  10 Proud Boys arrested  in the assault caught on camera in October 2018. Prosecutors slapped them with charges of attempted gang assault, attempted assault and rioting, declaring them the most vicious assailants that night. Their four-year sentence will include another five years of supervised release, the Manhattan District Attorney’s office confirmed to HuffPost.

The heavier sentences are a huge blow to the Proud Boys, who have been able to host semi-regular street brawls with few to no consequences in cities outside of New York. In Portland, Oregon, for example, they continue to organize violent fascist rallies despite  admitting on camera  that they host these events to spur fights, waste city resources and then blame anti-fascist protesters when the dust settles.

Kinsman and Hare’s crew tried a similar tactic in this case, claiming that they acted in self-defense when they beat down protesters outside the Metropolitan Republican Club  after an event hosted by Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes. But video evidence — shot by reporter Sandi Bachom — proved otherwise, and Manhattan prosecutors never bought the line. They eventually charged the Proud Boys as what they are: a gang.


“As violent extremism rises in America, a Manhattan jury has declared in one voice that  New Yorkers will not tolerate mob violence  in our own backyard,” Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. said in a statement after the convictions in August.

Justice Mark Dwyer, who presided over the case, also connected the Proud Boys and McInnes, who has repeatedly tried to distance himself from his gang as its members face charges and get involved in scandals related to the violence they commit.

The DA’s office confirmed that Dwyer called the Proud Boys McInnes’ “soldiers” in court, as first reported on Twitter by reporter Ali Winston. 


After the sentencing, McInnes doubled down on Telegram, saying the two men were “defending themselves,” and blamed the work of various extremism reporters ― including two at HuffPost ― for their sentences. In reality,  McInnes helped arrange their surrender , The New York Times reported.

Eight other Proud Boys were convicted on various charges in connection with the street brawl, including disorderly conduct and riot, and their sentences ranged from five days of community service to 10 months in jail.

The all-male Proud Boys organization — which describes its members as “Western chauvinists” — has been characterized as a hate group by the  Southern Poverty Law Center  for spreading white nationalism, misogyny and Islamophobia.

Though they resent the characterization of their ranks as violent, HuffPost revealed in May that the Proud Boys spend months before their rallies  plotting optics and tactics  to attack protesters and get away without charges.

You're not helping your own credibility by linking antifa violence when this seed is clearly about 2 Proud Boys being convicted of gang violence. Are you going to condemn the Proud Boys or just keep reminding us that antifa is a bunch of thugs, too? Because I don't think any of us need to be reminded that antifa is just as bad as the Proud Boys

I don't know why you describe them as white supremacists. I haven't done much research into them but there appears to be more black males in the video in the seed than I have ever seen at an Antifa protest. From what I have heard of the group they are more centered around embracing their male characteristics and not letting society dismiss their natural behavior as "toxic masculinity". I guess it doesn't really matter when I consider who I'm addressing here. For people like you it's :

white supremacist = racist = xenophobe = misogynist = Trump supporter = Republican 

This is the narrative sold by progressive news programming and obviously it works on a lot of people.

White supremacy and racism are 2 completely different things. Yes white supremacists are racist but not all racists are white supremacists. Any race can be racist. Therefore white supremacy and racism are not the same thing. The point is, when people who ingest too much CNN see any one of those words, they assume all of them apply. When people hear the word racist, they immediately picture a white Trump supporter. That is racist in my eyes.

It's hard to tell but at :39 the guy looks black to me.

Not all Trump supporters are white supremacist, racist, homophobic, xenophobic misogynists but virtually every white supremacist, homophobic misogynist xenophobe supports Trump. How could they not when so much of Trumps message has been demonizing and attacking all the people they despise?

"Andrew Anglin, founder of the popular right-wing website The Daily Stormer, heaped praise on Trump. "This is the kind of WHITE NATIONALISM we elected him for," Anglin wrote on his website.

On GoyTalk, a right-wing podcast, the hosts greeted the comments as a return to form on the part of Trump. 

"Trump's racist again! He won me over,"one of the hosts said. To which a co-host said, "He'll win me over when he actually strangles her [Congresswoman Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez] on stage."

You don't use common sense. If I was truly a white supremacist, Trump would be my biggest enemy. Why would I support a guy with his head so far up Israel's arse, that it even makes progressives sick? No, if I was a white supremacist I would probably support Elizabeth Warren who hates Israel, and has social policies that look a lot more like Nazi Germany than America does now.

Why would I support a guy with his head so far up Israel's arse, that it even makes progressives sick?

As my link points out:

"While some groups such as patriot militias and religious conservatives have not wavered in their support, more extremist groups such as neo-Nazi organizations have distanced themselves from Trump, angry over his support for Israel and failure to implement tough immigration policies.

"They're glad Trump said it, but they're still mad at him for other things," Squire said. "They're mad at him about Israel because, of course, they're anti-Semitic. They're mad at him about immigration, that he hasn't fulfilled his campaign promises, so they feel let down." 

Echoing the white nationalists' mixed feelings toward Trump, Patrick Casey, leader of the white supremacist group the American Identity Movement, tweeted Monday: "My reservations about the administration remain, but Trump escalating his attacks on these four horrid women — women who simply do not belong in America, let alone in our government — is more than a little satisfying." 

Mendelson said Casey's tweet encapsulates the changed relationship between white supremacists and Trump.  

"The white supremacist movement is by no means monolithic in their views of Trump," Mendelson said. "In 2016, many embraced President Trump as their knight in shining armor, who was essentially carrying the mantle of their white supremacist ideals. But over time, many have been greatly disenchanted with his execution of these ideals, whether it's building the border wall, or whether it's his alliances with Israel and Jews."

Just because they will vote for Trump doesn't mean they "support" him. There are many people who voted for Obama who wouldn't consider themselves Obama supporters. Sounds like white supremacists like it when Trump trolls progressives(as most people do), but they definitely aren't sold on his presidency or him as a leader. It literally boils down to he supports responsible immigration policy, so they will vote for him.

It's far more likely that because he called Mexicans "rapists" and the immigrants coming from South America an "infestation" and "invasion" that white supremacists continue to stick by him even though some disagree with his supposed support for Israel.

What others say about the SPLC:

Southern Poverty Law Center Is a Hate Group

711d5912-0968-417d-b0b4-907c69b2a975.jpg
Like many leftist organizations, the Southern Poverty Law Center, or SPLC, started out with good intentions. It was founded in 1971 by Morris Dees and Joseph Levin and is headquartered in Montgomery, Alabama.  The Southern Poverty Law Center rightly condemned, as did conservatives such as the great William F. Buckley and Ronald Reagan, the American Nazi Party and the Democrat-affiliated Ku Klux Klan.  A favorite SPLC tactic was suing Klan affiliated organizations for their crimes and then distributing the money to the victims.  This strategy has been effective in financially hurting many Klan related organizations.  SPLC, though always leftist in nature, bravely stood strong through attacks on its headquarters and threats against its leaders by Klansman.  That is to be commended.

Sadly, the Southern Poverty Law Center has more than lost its way.  The going astray from the original mission can be traced back to 1986, when most of the organization resigned, except founder Morris Dees, when Dees turned the focus of the group to strictly monitoring hate groups.

The list of hate groups has kept getting longer and longer while our nation has become more tolerant of those who are different.  In March 2013, the publication   Foreign Policy   ran an expose on the methodology of SPLC’s listing of hate groups, noting that SPLC counted many groups several times.

The overall impression from SPLC’s list is designed to make Americans believe that America is a nation filled with racism, sexism, homophobia, anti-Semitism, and every other form of hatred that the conservative cause specifically disavows.

SPLC’s senior leadership is shameful.  It uses its past legacy of fighting against racism to add legitimacy to their evolving agenda of hatred towards the large number of Americans who hold conservative and religious values.

In 2010, SPLC added the conservative Family Research Council to its list of hate groups.

In early 2015, SPLC added Dr. Ben Carson to its list of hate groups.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali, an atheist, feminist, and former Muslim who speaks out against female genital mutilation, was added to the SPLC hate list in recent years.  Ali has many death threats on her life by Islamic radicals but SPLC labels her, and not those who have made the threats, on the hate watch list.

The most recent SPLC controversy involves labeling the Alliance Defending Freedom, or ADF.  Attorney General Jeff Sessions made a speech to ADF last week and was immediately vilified by the left wing media such as ABC for associating with an alleged hate group.  How ridiculous. 

Alliance Defending Freedom was founded to "advocate for the rights of people to peacefully and freely speak, live and work according to their faith and conscience without threat of government punishment."

ADF has won seven Supreme Court cases in the last seven years including the recent Trinity Lutheran v. Comer religious liberty case.  ADF has also won over 400 victories regarding academic freedom in the university.

ADF consistently brings cases to the United States Supreme Court and wins.  Regarding LGBTQ issues, ADF argues for the rights of Christians and others to practice their deeply held belief system.  Even President Obama said that there are people of good faith on both sides of this issue as, indeed marriage between a man and woman has been enshrined for many thousands of years, but SPLC now has to be more progressive than even President Obama.  Former Attorney General Ed Meese wrote recently in   The Wall Street Journal , “One doesn’t have to agree with ADF’s views to see the problem of treating this law firm as the equivalent of the Ku Klux Klan.”

SPLC’s senior leaders simply do not believe the organization can survive merely by targeting the wickedness of the KKK and neo-Nazi organizations.  Instead the leadership believes it must label conservatives and Christians as hate groups.  SPLC leaders simply cannot accept that the overwhelming majority of Americans reject racism, sexism, and hatred of other people.  SPLC Leadership cannot accept that America is an even more loving nation than when SPLC was founded.  In 2014 the FBI, under President Obama no less, said they would no longer use the SPLC criteria of hate groups as its own.  There is a reason for that.

The Southern Poverty Law Center has become a leftist mouthpiece and, guided by its progressive evolution, a hate group.  The SPLC evolution is not surprising.   As clear as the laws of physics, where leftism is found, hatred, bigotry, and intolerance will soon follow.  They have no tolerance for those who argue for religious freedom to Christians and even Muslims who are opposed to female genital mutilation. 

Make no mistake, SPLC will continue labeling more and more conservative and Christian groups as hate groups.  However, the real victim is not just conservative organizations.  It is the those who need the services of a legal group to defend them because of real hatred.  Because SPLC has cried wolf one too many times and it has diminished the definition of what a hate group is.  They are too far gone now to turn back and will continue their slide into illegitimacy. They could, however, regain their legitimacy by listing a new group as a hate group.  They could start by listing the Southern Poverty Law Center.

What others say about the SPLC

Does that change anything those pictured above have done or are doing? Is the SPLC the only one who considers most of those groups "extremists"? Many of them self identify as extremist by either their message or their actions. So just because the SPLC misidentified a group, that In no way absolves all the others of their open hate filled rhetoric. This is just more "what-a-bout-ism that does nothing to actually move us towards a world without that kind of blatant bigotry displayed and celebrated.

https://www.newsweek.com/splc-nawaz-million-apologizes-981879

he Southern Poverty Law Center apologized and agreed Monday to a settlement of $3.375 million to Maajid Nawaz's Quilliam Foundation after admitting to falsely labeling his advocacy organization as "extremist."

Nawaz, a former British politician who has railed against Islamic extremism and the false use of the Koran to incite violence around the globe, and Quilliam were incorrectly characterized and listed in the SPLC's "A Journalist's Manual: Field Guide to Anti-Muslim Extremists."

Nawaz, 40, announced the suit against SPLC in June of last year, and the organization admitted in its apology that it altered its position after several "human rights advocates affiliated with the United Nations" praised Nawaz's work.

Also, a leader of the SPLC, Heidi Beirich, was quoted during a speech as saying that Nawaz wanted mosques surveilled and that in turn meant "his opinion is that all Muslims are potential terrorists."

But the SPLC pulled back on its criticism of Nawaz after nearly a year.

"After getting a deeper understanding of their views and after hearing from others for whom we have great respect, we realize that we were simply wrong to have included Mr. Nawaz and Quilliam in the Field Guide in the first place," SPLC President Richard Cohen said while announcing the settlement on the organization's website .

Cohen also apologized to SPLC supporters, stating that "it pains us greatly whenever we make a mistake."

In response to the settlement, Nawaz thanked supporters who helped raise funds for the legal battle and claimed a victory against the "Regressive Left," a term he's coined to describe far-leftists.

"With the help of everyone who contributed to our litigation fund, we were able to fight back against the Regressive Left and show them that moderate Muslims will not be silenced," Nawaz said in a statement through a press release . "We will continue to combat extremists by defying Muslim stereotypes, calling out fundamentalism in our own communities, and speaking out against anti-Muslim hate."
