Word on the street is the Alt-Right wants to start infiltrating our meetings in an effort to recruit new members and/or sabotage us. Apparently something went down in Charlottesville that wasn’t good PR for them and they’re also angry we refused to “unite the right.” I’m being told they are going to pretend not to be Alt-Right so they can come to meet-ups and gather as much info as possible. They also plan to get caught doing terrible things while wearing our shirts in an effort to discredit us. It’s a strange strategy but they’re not known for being reasonable.
Please be very diligent about new members. If there is even a possibility they are Alt-Right, do not allow them at meet-ups. If you know of anyone who is presently a member and who is Alt-Right, they are cut from the club as of right now. If you refuse, you are your own separate entity and not affiliated with Proud Boys.
- HOW DO I KNOW IF A MEMBER IS ALT-RIGHT?
The two big differences we have with them is the “JQ” and racial identity politics. They think the Jews are responsible for America’s problems and they think “Western” is inseparable from “white.” They don’t see a future for non-whites in America. FUCK THAT. We reject all of those things. We openly encourage Jewish and non-white members and want them to know they’re at home with us. Black and Jewish conservatives have to put up with a lot of shit and the last thing we want is for them to feel uncomfortable when hanging out with their drinking buddies.
Other signs of the Alt-Right include an obsession with Hitler, saying socialism might work, seeing gays as degenerates and eschewing Christianity. These all pale in comparison to the two biggies. The second you see signs of JQ or white nationalism, show them the door. To be clear: All white nationalists / anti-Semites are banned from Proud Boys even if they never bring up said topics.
- WHAT IF I SEE PROUD BOYS AT AN ALT-RIGHT RALLY?
You don’t. You either see someone who used to be a Proud Boy or someone who is dressed the same as us. If you see someone in a McDonald’s uniform smoking crack, Ray Kroc does not become Ray Crack. We are very obvious when we endorse something. You will see it on our websites. We will make sure we’re on the flyer. I will attend the event. We used to say it was all right to check out various events as long as you weren’t there as a Proud Boy. That is no longer the case. Proud Boys may not attend Alt-Right events in ANY capacity. Not even as a journalist.
- SO WHAT EXACTLY ARE WE ABOUT?
It’s very simple. We are a men’s club that meets about once a month to drink beer. We have attended rallies where we felt our friends were in danger but that’s not what we’re about. We’re not political activists. FOAK (which isn’t Alt-Right either) is very active and political and they are affiliated with us in the sense that they have our backs in a riot. If you want to attend every single patriot rally, join FOAK. We don’t want to go to riots. We want to drink beer. We wish the Alt-Right AND the Alt-Left would go fight it out amongst themselves and leave us alone. As Henry Kissinger said when he was asked who would win the Iran / Iraq war, “Ugh, can’t they both lose?”
I’ve said this 1,000 times and I’ll say it 1,000 more: We are a fraternal organization like the Elk’s Lodge. 100% of us are Western chauvinists which simply means we all believe the West is the Best. 2nd Degrees and up have to quit porn. 3rd degrees have a tattoo. There are NO racial requirements to be in the Proud Boys. There are no special rules for black Proud Boys (this overrides anything previously published about black PBs) or any other non-white PBs. We don’t care what your sexual preference is and that includes guys dating trans. Politically, a good 98% of us love Trump but that is not a requirement. Our Pope, Dante Nero was a Hillary guy.
Women are not allowed at our meetings. If it’s at a bar, they can be there for the warm up and they come back after the meeting but the actual rituals have to be in an environment that is men only. There is no exception to this rule. If a woman is present when the readings are happening, that club is no longer affiliated with the Proud Boys.
Also, a final note about the violence: We are not a violent group. We don’t start fights but we will finish them. The violence you see in the media is us defending ourselves from lunatics who want us dead for no discernible reason. We do not advocate going to their rallies such as the May Day celebrations and messing with their free speech. We’ve already clarified the 4th degree. You don’t get rewarded for getting into a fight. You get a consolation prize. Don’t start no shit. Won’t be no shit.
Avoiding infiltrators isn’t easy. When people lie about who they are and what they believe, you can only guess if they’re telling the truth. All we can do is make it very clear what our organization is about and boot anyone out when they don’t belong. The Alt-Right and the Alt-Left need to focus on their own organizations and curb their obsession with ours. We just want to be left alone so we can drink our beer in peace. If you want a problem, disturb a man who just wants to be left alone so he can drink his beer in peace.
