I won't get into Antifa but don't mistake that as some sort of endorsement. I simply can't express my hubris towards them in words. I just want to
point some things out..
For starters, claiming the "Proud Boys only hate Antifa" only to follow it up a few sentences later with "they aren't a hate group" isn't a compelling
argument. The group was about as insignificant as they come until Gavin capitalized by playing up their "hated" for Antifa to raise their popularity.
If Antifa are primarily made up of socialists and communists, what would that make a group that survives by essentially leeching off of Antifa?
I get it.. it's almost natural reaction to support any group talking smack about Antifa and claiming they're ready to throw down. The enemy of my
enemy and all that jazz. It's a shame that the Proud Boys apparently train in the same Helen Keller Jujitsu fighting style as Antifa. The LARPers that
frequent the our City Park show more aggression while fighting than these two groups.
Stop proclaiming to be superior to the "bordering on crazy and crazy about our border party" if you can't accept your losses either. Many of us,
myself included.. are tired of democrats playing the victim card. Why do Proud Boys get a pass for playing it without any hesitation?
("They harrassed us for days!" "None of our cameras got footage of what they did." "It isn't fair how the media comes to Antifa's defense!")
The simple truth is that the Proud Boys despite having every advantage, did the impossible by miraculously becoming less popular than Antifa. Now that
takes a special kind of stupid and while I don't see their appeal, by please feel free to continue showing your support.
