The Not-So-Proud Anymore Boys


Proud Boys! U-hu—uh oh. The Proud Boys finally used up their copious spare lives after a brutal gang beatdown was caught on camera after a GOP-sponsored event in Manhattan. The Proud Boys’ leader and founder, Gavin McInnes, has gone on record saying explicitly that the Proud Boys are ‘a gang.’ This is the latest in a sequence of nationwide violent incidents, which ultimately have led to the implosion of the organization and chaos over its leadership. Among its leaders is J.L. van Dyke, a lawyer with a history of threatening journalists, who is himself facing charges in Texas for lying to police.
