Yeah, those guys doing the attacking and calling that guy a “faggot” do not look like Antifa to me.

A violent incident, in which members of a Trump-supporting far-right group kicked and punched people and wielded a sword on the streets of Manhattan, was captured on camera Friday, and New York Police Department confirmed that three arrests had been made in connection with the incident.

The altercation occurred shortly after the group, which calls itself Proud Boys and is listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, held a meeting at the New York Metropolitan Republican Club.

Before the meeting, the club had been vandalized. Fox News, in its story on the incident, seized on the vandalism to imply that Antifa might have been responsible for both acts.

Its story, headlined “Antifa strikes again” suggested the violence and footage of a man brandishing a sword were linked with the far-left group.

But city officials have never said the vandalism was committed by Antifa, and the man brandishing a sword in the video appears to be the founder of Proud Boys — and one of the founders of the media company Vice — Gavin McInnes.

Multiple other videos and records of arrests provided to Newsweek suggest the far-right group was, in fact, behind the violent attacks that took place on the Upper East Side of Manhattan on Friday.

Here is that Fox Story.


Wrong again Fox News.

Keep in mind that the conservative media described women protesting outside of Senate offices on Capitol Hill as “violent left-wing mobs.”

    OT?
    According to the Gun Violence Archive, the Taft shooting is one of the latest in a particularly violent year that has seen nearly 300 mass shootings.
    Gunfire at a one-year-old’s birthday party left four men dead and one injured in the latest mass shooting this year in Texas”

    That vicious attack by cowards on innocent people is so disturbing. I’m glad that there have been arrests. I hope these far-right freaks spend many years in prison.

    NYPD Looks to Charge 9 Proud Boys With Assault for Manhattan Fight

    The Proud Boys are a violent, ultra-nationalist group that promotes anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant, and anti-woman views. Although the group officially rejects white supremacy, members have nonetheless appeared at multiple racist events, with a former Proud Boy organizing the deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville. The group rallies around anti-left violence, and members of Proud Boy chapters in the Pacific Northwest have participated in public marches while wearing shirts that glorify the murders of leftists by Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet.

    We continue to investigate the violent incident on the UES on Friday night, and need information regarding these persons-of-interest.

    No complaints have been filed. If you were the victim of a crime, or have information about the incident, please call 1-800-577-TIPS. pic.twitter.com/YN2i23TcAg
