Turns out that the 'Antifa' group claiming they protested Red Sox game are actually right wingers

"SNIP...........


The actual protesters who hung the banner denied any connection to Boston Antifa in an interview with CSNNE. And the people behind the social media pages do not actually believe the things they say -- because they are a pair of anti-leftist pranksters from Oregon who started Boston Antifa as a parody of actual anti-fascist groups.

Brandon and Alexis, whose Antifa characters "Dustin" and "Quinn" opine on subjects like how fidget spinners can trigger PTSD in hurricane victims, said as much last April in an interview with right-wing media personality Gavin McInnes.


Calling these two right-wing asshats “pranksters,” gives the impression these kids are like … “pranksters.” Here is a video of the “humorous” group saying that Friday’s London bombing is a “false flag” operation by pro-Trump forces. Hilarious. I can’t start laughing enough. The Boston Globe also explains how this group has gotten a lot of right-wing help with exposure by right-wing nutjob Gavin McInnes.

....

McInnes is an “alt right” white supremacist who began a group called “The Proud Boys,” whose “pride” seems to reside in them being racist-snowflakes. These dickheads aren’t satirists. They’re propaganda opportunists.

2. When white supremacists or nazis commit crimes or act out they are pranksters

when POC do, they are thugs.

4. I Noticed That, Too

The worst part is that they are calling themselves "Antifa" and making it so that the shit they do reflects badly on the real anti-fascists.

6. The Proud Boys made a special long distance trip to San Diego

to cause disruptions and instigate violence at an Impeach 45 rally in July. They are asses and should be held accountable and charged for their acts (is inciting violence against the law?). The cops stood around, watched, and allowed their behavior to continue for over an hour before a guest speaker (a local assembly person) called the chief of police to make them get off their asses and do something for their salaries.

7. "Proud Boys" sure sounds like a gay advocacy group

I am making light of neither the incident or gay advocacy. Just stating my quick and immediate observation.

The actual Proud Boys are trash. How do bozos like this find the time or funds to execute this type of nonsense?

10. Yes. They exist. And should be expelled from any demonstration the second

they show up at demonstrations with their faces covered. That being said, they are a small minority.

11. I think those guys need to be captured and arrested, so we can all see

just who the violent assholes are. I don't much care if they're fake antifa or real antifa, if you're engaging in violence you need to be stopped. I do think a bunch of violent white men in face obscuring hoods points to the fake ones though.

12. I would like it if there was a law that said you had to unmask if police say so. That

would keep the violent at home.

14. Right you are. Bet enough of the Nazis lost their jobs that they show up next time

with scarfs or masks at the next white power event.
