The Proud Boys right-wing violent extremist hate organization has been infiltrating the GOP

(Link to original tweet follows)


The Proud Boys right-wing violent extremist hate organization has been infiltrating the GOP from its base in South Florida for years.

When others ignored the issue, I exposed the Miami-Dade GOP getting in bed with Proud Boys now charged in a seditious conspiracy.

First, I caught the Miami GOP's then-chairman Nelson Diaz planning AND leading a hate rally with the Proud Boys after he denied involvement.

He actually lied to me and said he was afraid of the Trump people.

But I had his email planning the event.


Miami GOP Chairman just caught leading Proud Boys in attack on Democratic campaign office

Video from the hate group proves that they helped Miami’s top Republican attack a Democratic congressional campaign HQ.


The Washington Post cited my reporting in their coverage of the incident.



Even Sen. Marco Rubio denounced the Miami GOP's assault on then-Democratic minority leader Pelosi and the campaign office she visited.


But that didn't stop the GOP Chairman, and former Rubio Chief of Staff, from lying to the Miami Herald about his role in planning the event that turned into an assault.

Fortunately, I wrote to them with receipts and they updated the story.

But Nelson Diaz wasn't the only prominent member of the GOP who assaulted a Democratic campaign office with the Proud Boys.

Then Rep. @carloslcurbelo's former operative Kevin Marino Cabrera also participated in the assault.


Former top Curbelo aide just caught at Miami GOP’s unhinged protest alongside Proud Boys hate group

Congressman Curbelo’s former campaign field director and Director of Constituent Services led the GOP’s charge against a Democratic…


Despite video evidence to the contrary, Curbelo spread falsehoods about his former aide's involvement in the attack in a subsequent televised political debate.

Cabrera went on to be the Trump 2020 Campaign's state director.


Curbelo Lies About His Former Senior Aide’s Role In Violent Rally With Hate Group - Debbie Mucarsel Powell

Miami, FL – During a live debate on WLPG-10 this Sunday, Republican Congressman Carlos Curbelo falsely claimed that his former senior aide was not part of a violent mob last Wednesday at an event in C…


Last month, Donald Trump endorsed Cabrera for the open Miami-Dade Commission seat he is running for this fall.


Donald Trump endorses Kevin Marino Cabrera for Miami-Dade Commission

‘Kevin Cabrera will represent his community with honor, and he has my Complete and Total Endorsement!’


But I didn't stop there. Thomas Kennedy got an exclusive video and co-wrote this set of stories with me this May. We learned that the Proud Boys had fully infiltrated the Miami GOP and had a plan to infiltrate Fort Lauderdale's GOP party apparatus too.


Police intervene after Miami GOP's Proud Boys members brawl at DeSantis' speech to the party

Miami's Republican Party has an enormous Proud Boys faction and they're getting out of control.


While gathering numerous public records in the case, we also reported that the New York Times was covering the same story we were covering.

GOOD! It's about time that the Miami GOP is exposed for what it is: a welcoming home for violent extremists and hate.


We reported on the Proud Boys' written plan, from the website of their re-branded group named "Floridians First," to take over the GOP in South Florida.

And we exposed their Proud Boys Republican Executive Committee members and indicted members.


EXCLUSIVE! Here is the Proud Boys' plan to take over the Republican Party in South Florida
Right-wing extremists from the Proud Boys have purposefully infiltrated Florida's Republican Party.


Last week, the Times shined a bright spotlight on the same issues @tomaskenn and I reported with the Miami GOP's infiltration by the Proud Boys. Shamefully, it's chairman defended the group's 1st Amendment right to associate with hate group members.


How the Proud Boys Gripped the Miami-Dade Republican Party

It was once Jeb Bush’s base of power. But an influx of far-right activists and the radicalization of other members brought turmoil.


Now, the national leader of the Proud Boys, the very individual who recorded and disseminated the 2018 attack in Miami, has been indicted on charges of seditious conspiracy to stop the peaceful transfer of power in 2020.


SEDITION! Proud Boy Enrique Tarrio, four others charged in coup plot

Proud Boy Enrique Tarrio and the four others are in deep, deep trouble now.

deborah scranton:
There is also the problem of decreasing oxygen in our air. Cutting down massive amounts of forest & poisoning the water creatures that also produce oxygen is reducing the amount of breathable air. Also the massive amounts of polar ice melt releasing large amounts of methane in to the atmosphere does not bode well for the survival of plants, animals & humans.

The new Cold War - More nuclear weapons in Europe? DW Documentary

March 2022: Russia is waging a war against Ukraine and President Putin is openly threatening to use nuclear weapons if the West supports Ukraine militarily. The return of nuclear weapons in Europe worries experts.

At the end of the Cold War, thousands of nuclear weapons were withdrawn from Europe. Thirty years later, however, the political situation had escalated again dramatically. New nuclear weapons had returned to Europe and experts agreed in 2018 that the situation had worsened again. At that time, the termination of the INF Treaty under President Trump was the greatest concern – today, in 2022, it’s Moscow’s open threat that nuclear weapons will also be used in the war.

Nuclear weapons return to Europe: film-maker Andreas Orth interviewed renowned international experts on this subject in 2018. He spoke to prominent military experts from France, Germany, Russia and the US, showed test images of the new generation of nuclear weapons and he filmed in once top-secret former nuclear missile sites and bunkers in France and Germany. How did these experts view the risk of a new cold war? Following Putin's attack on Ukraine in February 2022, some of the interviewees comment again on the situation as it now stands: How acute do they consider the danger of nuclear weapons being used in the war against Ukraine?

This species is amusing itself to death.
