3 Arrested After Violence Erupts Outside NYC Republican Club Event

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – Three people were arrested in New York City following violent clashes after a speech by the founder of a far-right group, and police say they are reviewing video and may make additional arrests.

According to authorities, Finbarr Slonim, Kai Russo, and Caleb Perkins were taken into custody after police arrived at the Metropolitan Republican Club around 8 p.m. on Friday.

The violence erupted following a speech by Gavin McInnes, the founder of the male-only far-right group the Proud Boys, who describe themselves as “western chauvinists.”

Videos posted on YouTube show clashes between the Proud Boys and groups that were protesting McInnes’ speech.

New York City Public Advocate Tish James called for additional arrests in connection to the melee, and encouraged Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance to pursue hate crime charges.

“I am disturbed and disgusted by the videos I’ve seen of members of the neo-fascist, white supremacist Proud Boys group in hate-fueled mob violence in the streets of New York City,” James said in a statement posted to Twitter. “New York will not become the next Charlottesville, and we refuse to let the actions of a hateful few define out City.”

The NYPD says it’s unclear if the three men arrested were affiliated with either group, but spokesman J. Peter Donald says the department is reviewing video and will make other arrests as warranted.

Earlier in the day, police began a search for vandals who damaged and spray painted anarchist symbols outside the same Upper East Side club.

Photos at the link. Some video of the altercation here:

Antifa people assaulted one of the PB group, and attempted to steal a MAGA hat. This is the fight that ensued. The people who were arrested were from Antifa.

I was there. McInnes was (intentionally) outlandishly funny. After-party was good too.

Who is this New York City Public Advocate Tish James and why is she siding with the “Antifa” terrorists?

Proud Boys, led by a Canadian restauranteur/comedian, married to a Native American.

About half of the Proud Boys there were black, Hispanic, or Asian.

New York media - anyone to the right of the CPUSA/Democrats is a racist fascist neo Nazi extremist. The New York media is a collective party organ.

Well that was........confusing. The shaky camera work didn't help. Everybody was dressed in black, they all looked similar in appearance, not much I could see to distinguish one side from the other - though did see a glimpse of a guy with a MAGA hat. And those techno tyranny asshats at Youtube restricted it.

I was serious:

They used a good lens for low-light and the processor was really fast, I’m sure.

Wow. They were able to write the whole article without the use of the word ANTIFA.

Technically, they were Workers World Party people, but there may have been WWP people who are also involved in Antifa.

I miss Gavin. Used to be on FNC a lot. He was hilarious.
I think FNC could have continued Red Eye if they had turned it over to Gavin.

It's today's modern, intersectional white supremacy, reaching out to minorities.

Will the arresting officers be disciplined, fired and charged with criminal activity by the commie loving New York government officials?
