The Proud Boys

The Daily Mail reports:

The Proud Boys were celebrating online after Donald Trump told them to ‘stand back and stand by’ during the first presidential debate – while president was attacked by members of his own party for refusing to condemn white supremacy before delivering his message to the far-right group.

Members of the group posted about the shout out, telling the president: ‘We’re ready.’ Their account on the media app Telegram posted: ‘Standing down and standing by sir.’

Proud Boys is a far-right organization that admits only men as members and promotes and engages in political violence. The group believes white men and western are under siege and one of its co-founders recorded a video titled ’10 things hate about the Jews.’

Sounds a lovely group. Their initiation process is even better:

  1. Recite a a loyalty oath, on the order of “’m a proud Western chauvinist, I refuse to apologize for creating the modern world”
  2. Get punched until the person recites pop trivia, such as the names of five breakfast cereals
  3. Get a tattoo and agree to not masturbate
  4. Get into a major fight “for the cause.”

It seems No 3 has been modified to allow it, but not more than once a month!
