The Proud Boys, explained: From Rituals to 1/6

by News Update

The Proud Boys started as a right-wing fight club. Now many of its members have been charged in the January 6th attack on the Capitol. CNN’s Elle Reeve, who has covered the Proud Boys from their earliest days, discusses the rise of this paramilitary group with Reality Check’s John Avlon – and why one former Proud Boy says he left the group be believed had become “too much like a nationwide criminal gang.” #CNN #proudboys #january6

Antifa and blm are the real problem!

All of this is happening while hundreds of thousands of Americans continue to suffer horrible deaths from COVID. And those in the Trump cult appear not to give a damn.

im from england and have nothing to do with the proud boys, but i have looked in to who and what they are, and its so bizarre seeing these two people not have a clue about what there talking about,from what iv seen its a boys club with all races as members, they go out and get drunk and act daft, there making out like they are going out an attacking innocent people . . .why dont they put there time and effort into a real threat, like the aryan brother hood, muslim extremists,antifa to name a few, that have actually killed innocent people . . . this is so silly and lazy

Proud Boys started as a goofy, multicultural drinking club for men but then started acting as a sort of security force for conservative speakers who were getting assaulted by violent leftists

I don't remember Elle Reeve. But then again, this is CNN. 👌FAFO

That Kevin August 8, 2022 - 7:28 AM

I thought we were going to lock her up lock her up lock her up! But what happened you guys got locked up ya bunch of dummies! It’s right there in your name you call yourselves Boys. Not just that but you say you’re proud of it and so to you I say “shut up little boy and sit down I’m a grown man you be quiet when I speak I’ll let you know if and when you get to say something!” 🤣

That Kevin August 8, 2022 - 7:31 AM

OK but their leader is not even white!
Oh my God these dudes are just so stupid! A bunch of white supremacist let by a guy who’s not white.

Zachary_Attackery August 8, 2022 - 7:46 AM

Well it's by CNN so you can pretty much guarantee everything said here is the exact opposite of the truth

YouTube Mods Are Snowflake Lefties August 8, 2022 - 3:48 PM

These are the same people who say "men need to be quiet about women's issues, they can't speak on them". Yet some soy dripping woman is explaining why men join Proud Boys, and these same women tell us what is "toxic" masculinity and what isn't.

Ah… how I love (and sometimes hate) irony…

Andrew Hassell August 8, 2022 - 5:58 PM

What a joke of a video.

Who tf are the proud boys? They’re not anywhere on our spectrum, they’re not liked by ANY right wing media figure on YouTube or not. This is a CNN manufactured group by main stream media and the socialist to smear the right.

Jay LM August 10, 2022 - 6:13 PM

Antifa is an anti fascist so why hate them?
Also tbh they couldn't even beat antifa…
They got beat up by them…
And antifa has no membership and no funding proud guys had a ton of membership, and tons and tons of funding… They got beat by little antifa… They're weak

David Trindle August 10, 2022 - 11:55 PM

What are these “proud boys” proud of. Certainly not their treason during the Jan 6 insurrection

Ant Blake August 11, 2022 - 9:03 AM

The Proud Boys are just sickening. They are quintessentially Anti American and are nothing more than bigoted traitors with major insecurity issues. They are sexist, not patriotic and they only Revere the entrepreneur, I am a real American thank you very much and I choose to Revere the writer. Mark Twain and Edgar Allan Poe were far more American than the life ruining robber barons such as Rockefeller or Carnegie. And their thing about "Betas". If they (The Proud Boys) have such good impulse control, then why can they not go 45 minutes without being triggered by men who do not conform to their backwards ideas of masculinity? Our nation needs to follow New Zealand and Canada ASAP and declare these people to be a bonafide terrorist organization.
