The media and the rest of the far-left only survive by attacking those who stand up for freedom. The Proud Boys will always stand up for freedom. We also protect others who stand up for freedom and are often asked to serve as a defensive line for prayer vigils and other peaceful groups who know they will be attacked by militant Antifa and BLM racist thugs. Thus, the media and the radical left work tirelessly to dox our members and try to get them fired, threaten their families, and try to de-person them. That we have to cover our faces is a sad sign of the state of our country.
I heard you are a violent gang
False. First, we are not a gang. We are a fraternity. Second, we do not endorse violence or initiate violent encounters. However, we will also not back down from them either. The most common situation you will see are militant Antifa or BLM racists attacking Proud Boys or innocent bystanders. When either of those happens, we absolutely will defend ourselves or those around us who are innocent. Typically this is caught on video and only the part where Proud Boys are defending themselves is shown This is why you do not see what happens BEFORE that because it destroys the false narrative. Next time you see a video of a Proud Boy supposedly being an aggressor, notice that the video before that part is missing. Now you know why.
You are all white supremacists
That’s completely false and a common lie spread by those who oppose freedom. There are Proud Boys who are black, white, Asian, Hispanic, straight, and gay. Please refer to our tenets regarding our strong stance against racism. Anyone you see who is wearing Proud Boys attire and promoting racism is not a true Proud Boy.
How long does it take to become a Proud Boy
Not everyone who wants to become a Proud Boy will be accepted. There is an extensive vetting process and while there is no “timeframe”, vetting can take more than a year.
