“Are these Guys Nazis Walter?”
-Donnie (the Big Lebowski)
Read any good articles about the Proud Boys lately? There seems to be one common theme, one hurdle, most mainstream outlets are still struggling with: “Are the Proud Boys Nazis?”
Here’s the short answer, “Fuck your mother”.
Here’s an even shorter answer, “No”.
Yet this doesn’t seem to stop writers from places like the Village Voice, Salon, Wired, and recently even the New York Times has been desperately been using every yellow journalism trick and in the book to equate any organized group not 100% left to an “obvious Nazi serge”. Here is what the proud boys actually stand for:
- Western Culture
- Free Speech
- Free Market
- Venerate the House Wife
- Glorify the Entrepreneur
- Have Fun
…You may have noticed “a Reich that will last 1000 years” isn’t on the list.
That doesn’t stop journalists from thumb tacking up string in their “Beautiful Mind” rooms to find any false equivalency that might make some casual readers associate the name “Proud Boys” with “Nazi Scourge”.
Many of these publications (like Salon and the New York Times) change their headlines from directly equating the Proud Boys with any hate group they can imagine, to something tamer after the damage is done. Some of these journalists can expect a day in court from Proud Boy founder Gavin McInnes and others wrongly accused of being fascist sympathizers. Here’s the official word from McInnes on the subject:
That would be (as leftists say about climate change) “settled science”. It would have to strike you as super unusual that a group of guys who have NEVER restricted their membership based on race, have never had an unkind word to say about Jews, and whose founder (with a mix race family) openly speaks about how the Proud Boys have no interest in racism; would be using all that to further their “secret hidden Nazi agenda”. Yet sources have told me that even right wing “Free Speech” rally organizers were leery of the Proud Boys. Why? Cause they read that we were Nazis on something that’s barely a blog run by ultra leftist riot starters Antifa. Smooth. In other news a guy blogging for the Red Sox says “Yankees Suck”.
Let’s tangle the web even more…. now that all these leftist outlets report that the Proud Boys are Nazis, even people on the right get scared and say “No Proud Boys cause we heard you’re Nazis”. Then who shows up but, dun da-da da, NAZIS. No Shit? The four backwoods losers craving attention in an isolated town decide to come out of their mom’s basements cause they read on the internet that Proud Boys and Free Speech protesters are on their side. Finally, they might get some validation beyond an uncle touching them. Out of hundreds of normal people who show up to rally for free speech, one Nazi attention whore will show up with a shit eating grin on his face and stand over on our side of the barricade where he is promptly shut down by the Proud Boy themselves, like THIS.
As we peel back more of the onion, what happens next?
- The Media will report on the ONE GUY who showed up in a “I’m a Proud Fascist” t-shirt.
- People, including other Proud Boys dumb enough to listen to the media will have an autistic freak out and frantically “disavow” an entire Proud Boy chapter who had nothing to do with that one guy AND “disavowed” him ON VIDEO.
Problem solved right? Wrong!
- Now the barely there number of people who think they’re “Nazis” AND their troll accounts show up online to declare what “cucks” we are for trying to impress people with how racist we’re NOT
- They declare repeatedly in a comment thread about how much of a Nazi, racist, (all round shitty person) they, in fact, are.
- This is then seen by MORE media, or just regular people looking on curiously who then say “Look at all the Nazis on this page.”
…Despite the hate in our direction about how we’re not “Nazi” enough. Confused yet? You fucking should be!
What we really are is bored. This Nazi shit is boring. The defending not being a Nazi thing is boring. The “Jewish Question” thing is eye rolling-ly boring. Between the media, the left, and the Alt right this obsession with Nazis seems a mental illness. These fucking people see Hitler in their pancakes. Commenters referred to Proud Boys as “literately the brown shirts” for protecting female journalists in DC from being attacked by rioters. Then you got the Alt-Right who see ANY group of people disagreeing with the left and presume there’s an underlying “Nazi-Thing” here, they show up and leave sooooooo bummed out when we light them up in debates and send them packing.
DUMBER STILL the Alt-Right and the left both don’t realize that Nazi & Fascists….. are on the LEFT.
Left and right define the role government plays in society. The left wants more control to the collective, the right wants more control to the individual. Socialism, National Socialism, Nazism, Communism, Stalin-ism, Mao-ism, Democratic Socialism, and Fascism are all sides of the same coin that is Marxist Collectivism. Catholics, Baptists, Amish, 7th Day Adventists, and the weird Snake Church in Louisiana have plenty to argue over, but are still all Christianity. (In this metaphor, the right are atheists.)
Here’s the deal with most Proud Boys; We’re not competing to be the most “conservative”. We’re trying to have a sound argument and get the logic right. I’m a conservative cause, that’s what I’m called. If tomorrow they same things I believe got labeled “liberal”, I’d be that. The conservative thought process has less to do with “feelings” and more to do with the “nuts & bolts” of how things work. I didn’t just pick a side like a football team than ask other people “what do we believe now?”.
We’re not racist, end of story. Not cause we’re trying to impress liberals, not cause we’re saying that to cover up our hidden Nazi agenda, but simply because we don’t need to go over a checklist of “what someone is” before deciding if we like them as people. Fair enough? When all these unoriginal dipshits read this I’m sure they can’t wait to ejaculate the word “cuck” a million times like it’s a pony trick they learned. I’m positive they’re are some keyboards out there with ”c” “u” & “k” worn out. Same thing as a liberal who thinks “if I say racist I win”. You’re the same person. Find each other.
The proud boys I know, don’t base their opinions on whether they’ll be called a “racist” or a “cuck”. They have no interest in Nazism. We don’t see Nazis in our pancakes. We enjoy learning from people like Milo, Ben Shapiro, Steven Crowder, Christina Hoff Summers, Thomas Sowell, Dinesh D’souze, Jordan Peterson, Joe Rogan, Gad Saad, Frank Zappa, Ann Coulter, Penn Jillette, Gavin McInnes and a variety of other thinkers with a variety of opinions and backgrounds who may be right or wrong. The fun is figuring it out.
See what makes sense for yourself, I can’t tell you what to think, but I’ll let a Proud Boy in good standing have the final word on the Nazi garbage:
Now that that’s settled I’d just like to say, TAXATION IS THEFT.
