Below is the complete documentary made by Will Reid and Dean Cornish for Dateline SBS in Australia:
The choice to participate in the piece was heavily criticized (especially by other Proud Boys) as a seemingly clear walk into a hit job. Will and Dean do not agree with every last thing we stand for, and the SBS downright is against us, but what we saw in these two guys were people who truly wanted to dig around to learn about the story rather than construct a smear campaign based on what they read online.
They heard other points of view including a self proclaim expert on “Men’s Groups,” which is not a job; and a spokesman for the SPLC. Frankly they looked lost and humiliated themselves on camera. It exposed them as reactionary ideologues scared of their own shadow when the field of debate is level. They seemed confused as to the actual specific reasons the Proud Boys were on their “Hate List,” and the SPLC revealed themselves to be phonies professing to be experts.
(Yes, SPLC, you have the right to put us on a made up hate-list, but the disingenuous way you present it as fact and yourselves as any kind of authority while riding on the name and good work done by your organization 50 years ago is laughable.)
The documentary features Gavin wearing a leather jacket sitting at a piano petting a small dog. It features Proud Boys’ Girl commentator Martina Markota and Milo. The Texas Proud Boys from West is the Best are also predominately showcased, as well as myself.
The left likes a rigged game. We did not ask the filmmakers to endorse us, we asked them to present our opinions fairly. We asked them not to ask questions on camera and omit answers in post production when they were available. They were absolutely fair, despite having the handicap of being progressive media, and that is a breath of fresh air.
People love hearing the truth in journalism and actual objectivity legitimizes the organization doing the reporting. The compliments for their fairness are already being reflected in the YouTube comments sections and will make Reid and Cornish have an air of authenticity wherever their careers go from here.
