The internal affairs division of the Plaquemines Parish Sheriff's Office on Wednesday (Aug. 8) began looking into a complaint that a patrol deputy is part of a right-leaning organization that some have categorized as a hate group.
The Sheriff's Office received Facebook screenshots and other images purportedly showing that Deputy Brian Green is a member of the Proud Boys, a conservative, men-only group whose members describe themselves as "Western Chauvinists."
"To determine the factual and credible intentions and values of this organization, we are in contact with our federal partners to obtain reliable law enforcement intelligence that confirms or exonerates this organization as a hate or supremacy group," Sheriff Gerald A. Turlich Jr. said in a written statement released Thursday.
According to the Proud Boys' website and social media pages, the group eschews racial guilt and extolls gun rights, closed borders, minimal government and the "veneration of the housewife."
The Proud Boys, founded in 2016 by Vice Magazine co-founder Gavin McInnes, rejects the "alt-right" or white nationalist labels, claiming to be a diverse group that does not discriminate based on race or religion or sexual preference.
Despite the denial, the Southern Poverty Law Center categorizes the Proud Boys as a hate group whose members affiliate with known extremists and use white nationalist memes. The SPLC also accused the group of using anti-Muslim and misogynistic rhetoric.
Proud Boys members have attended alt- and far-right events such as last year's violent "Unite The Right" rally in Charlottesville, Va., which was organized by a former Proud Boys member, according to the SPLC.

We have way too many so called "edukaters" in that terrorist hate group antifa as well as other folks in "official" positions that should be fired and black listed. And libtards want to call "Proud Boys" haters.
I added crime/corruption to the topics not because of this officer but because of the criminal and corrupt individuals that are going after him.
To them, any group that hates liberalism is defined as a “hate group” and therefore shouldn’t be allowed to exist.
If they hate US, it’s completely justified in their teeny little minds because, after all, we’re “hate groups.”
...the Southern Poverty Law Center categorizes the Proud Boys as a hate group
Judge Perez would be proud.
But Judge Perez has been dead for 50 years.
Times change, even down in Plaquemines.
The SPLC is a dishonest, corrupt, racist organization that should only be relied upon to vomit forth false socialist propaganda.
Not that The Times-Picayune (NOLA.com) has much credibility.
BTW, look up picayune for a laugh.
Yea they are. But theys be rich!!
we are in contact with our federal partners to obtain reliable law enforcement intelligence
There’s your fist mistake.
The FBI is not the place to go for reliable law enforcement intelligence, intelligence of any kind or any kind of law enforcement.
SPLC has less credibility that the Times-Spittoon.
Who’s the hate group? Southern Poverty Law Center with $1M of George Clooney’s money.
1.a small coin of little value, especially a 5-cent piece
‘Proud Boys members have attended alt- and far-right events such as last year’s violent “Unite The Right” rally in Charlottesville, Va., which was organized by a former Proud Boys member, according to the SPLC.’
The former member was kicked out by leadership due to it being discovered he was a supporter of the Alt-right.
Also the PBs didn’t go to Charlottesville.
Would the sheriff be equally concerned if one of his deputies was allegedly a supporter of Black Lives Matter? The SPLC? The Black Panthers? Or is this just more black privilege/anti-white bigotry at work?
“”To determine the factual and credible intentions and values of this organization, WE ARE IN CONTACT WITH OUR FEDERAL PARTNERS....”
That means this idiot sheriff has contacted the gestapo FBI, murderers of women, children and babies and useful idiots in service to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
gotta love it!
It would not even make the news if it were something less serious like corruption. That was sarcastic.
“The sheriff is just going through the motions as he had a complaint about a member of his team being a part of a hate group so he has to investigate it.”
To what purpose? Some leftist puke makes an unsubstantiated charge, and the sheriff must investigate? Why?
I have a constitutional sheriff in my county, and when leftists cause sh*t, he investigates them.
I’m not trusting this sheriff. He looks weak.
Defending innocents from the depredations of Marxists and Anarchists is considered hate?
These people are F’d in the head.
Politics? Avoiding more BS than he already has to deal with?
