Posted on 10/13/2018 5:06:50 PM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum
A violent incident, in which members of a Trump-supporting far-right group kicked and punched people and wielded a sword on the streets of Manhattan, was captured on camera Friday, and New York Police Department confirmed that three arrests had been made in connection with the incident.
The altercation occurred shortly after the group, which calls itself Proud Boys and is listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, held a meeting at the New York Metropolitan Republican Club.
Before the meeting, the club had been vandalized. Fox News, in its story on the incident, seized on the vandalism to imply that Antifa might have been responsible for both acts.
Its story, headlined Antifa strikes again suggested the violence and footage of a man brandishing a sword were linked with the far-left group.
But city officials have never said the vandalism was committed by Antifa, and the man brandishing a sword in the video appears to be the founder of Proud Boys -- and one of the founders of the media company Vice -- Gavin McInnes.
Multiple other videos and records of arrests provided to Newsweek suggest the far-right group was, in fact, involved in the violent attacks that took place on the Upper East Side of Manhattan on Friday.

When conservatives take to the streets to be violent it will not be a protest, it will be a war.
Has the SPLC declared The Salvation Army a militant and religious far-right hate group yet?
The Proud Boys beat them up, too. That is good.
Funny how a hate group like the SPLC can just willy nilly label any group a hate group.
Have they labeled Black Lives Matter a hate group yet? Howabout antifa? #MeToo?
If the answer is no to any of them they have zero credibility.
Conservative mobs? Fake news.
Any group that is not Marxist Leninist Stalinist Maoist is a hate group according to the SPLC.
Ex-Newsweek owners arraigned on $10M fraud. Need anyone say more.
When the right fights back someday...
NewsWEAK?........fake news propaganda site?
What is it with these leftist wackos knocking hats off. That is provoking a beat down. Most folks aren’t going to be turning the other cheek as prescribed by Jesus.
Antifa vandalizes the Repub headquarters in NY and leave an antiAmerican note claiming credit for the attack. They promise more violence, yet the Repubs are not victims according to Newsweak. TWISTED.
Gavin is great.
Proud Boys wait for Antifa to commit crimes. Then they engage in motivated self defense. Good for them.
Newsweak trying to warp the narrative as usual.
At first I thought this might be a serious problem but then I read ‘Southern Poverty Law Center’ and then I realized it must be nonsense trash.
Re: note left behind by those who vandalized the NY Republican Club.
Who ARE these oddjobs? Which of the alphabet soup of fringe and splinter Marxist ‘revolutionary parties’ do they claim to belong to? Note the inconsistent linking of unrelated ‘causes.’
Note also the inclusion of the Democrats with the Republicans as their ‘fascist’ enemies. These guys, whoever they are, don’t like any part of the American political system. The Liberal Democrats, who usually see ‘no enemy to their Left’, should contemplate that.
Could you elaborate? Provide illustrations? What is the source of your information?
I was there. This was a transcript of Gavin’s own notes that I took a photo of:
Introduce Inejiro Asanuma, head of Japan’s Socialist Party.
(XXX, not Gavin, took the podium and began giving a speech)
SEVEN LIVES FOR MY COUNTRY
This is a quote from the great Samurai Kusunoki Masashige
(slow motion simulated death scene)
XXX and I introduce ourselves as ourselves and not Inejiro and Otoya.
Gavin: What a hero Otoya was. Pour a beer our for him.
(Gavin pours some Sapporo beer on the floor before swigging the beer down)
(Speech begins, in a similar vein of outlandish humor)
That’s some darn fine head-spinning, unbiased reportage right there! That’s what makes Newsweak so informative, soft and thoroughly absorbent.
