Proud Boys Canada dissolves itself after designation as terrorist entity

Proud Boys Canada dissolves itself after designation as terrorist entity

Proud Boys Canada, a group that Ottawa named as a terrorist entity earlier this year, has dissolved itself. In Feb., Canada said the group posed an active security threat and played a ’pivotal role’ in the deadly US Capitol attack. The group’s founder, Gavin McInnes, is a Canadian who lives in the US. ’The truth is, we were never terrorists or a white supremacy group,’ a statement read.

An all inclusive, all race, all region... Group of people who stand for freedom, the constitution... And being manly... Yep... Way more dangerous than the BLM who destroy every city they visit. Canada is worthless.

This is strong evidence that the media/government connection is turning toxic and anti-democratic! Now that they have succeeded in destroying a moderately successful popular group who will the government go after next? This is a slow motion stranglehold on our right to free speech , pay attention!

The far- right elements and nazis were purged from the proud boys a long time ago. Besides there is no such thing as the Proud Boys: they're just an Idea, Man.

As a gavin McInnis fan, I can tell you he's not lying. McInnis, a lifelong political satirist and one of the first internet trolls before it was a thing, founded the group as a meme, a joke in response to public denouncing of what some would call "privileged white men" trust fund babies running around colleges with khaki shorts, polos, and boat shoes and being frat bros. It started off as a joke. Unfortunately, some on the far right co opted the movement and started engaging in hate speech and violence, and claiming to be the proud boys. It just spun out of control, and gavin was left with no choice but to distance himself from it. It was never meant to be a terrorist organization, and I feel bad that Gavin is being misrepresented as something he never was because of some idiots actions from the extreme right.

So will they stand for equality of outcome and designate Antifa and BLM terrorist groups too? I HIGHLY doubt it

Fascist in italy also started as tough guys who liked to have a good laugh at someone else. They liked to beat up opposers, tie them up and force them to drink ricin oil so that they would shit themselves becoming the living meme of their local comunity. Then the marched on Rome, basically overthrowing the government. Then they allied with hitler and started adopting the same policies. But i'm sure that if you asked them, not all were violent and dangerous, mostly were just good comrades... Luckiy today we can look at the past and declare similar groups at terrorists before they overthrow the government.

@lLzard do you realize that the most accomplished forms of "western chauvinism" were fascists and nazis. Btw "western chauvinism" is a meaningless term for a series of contraddictory theories that are the feeding ground of right-wing popolist rethoric. Same goes for "western values" or "judeo-christian values".

Chris: please consider removing “far-right” wording from your summary. The articles don’t seem to count the Peoud Boys in with the other two groups? It appears more of a cautionary stance than actually evidenced labelling? This would be like listing BLM or Antifa as far-left extremists?

Good steps forward to fighting white nationalists. If you’re not trying to be a white nationalist group Dont regurgitate white nationalists rhetoric.

Proud Boys are terrorists but BLM and Antifa aren't how ironic.

So many people just falling to the same thing. Generalizing entire groups without understanding the nuance these hot button topics often have. Whether it’s proud boys or BLM. Antifa or “far right”. Left, right, center, blue, red, purple, dog person, cat person. Yeah some of these hot button topics are very important to talk about, but playing the blame game is just gonna increase the divide between these different groups that aren’t always that different. We should be able to put our metaphorical shields and spears down and talk about these topics and different perspectives to resolve the issues more amicably.

If they were really terrorists would they peacefully dissolve themselves upon gaining the designation?
