According to Slate:

 

Members of the far-right men’s group “Proud Boys” beat up at least three protesters Friday in the streets of Manhattan after an event Friday night.
The members of the pro-Trump organization that the Southern Poverty Law Center identifies as a hate group had gathered at the Metropolitan Republican Club on the Upper East Side to hear a speech by the group’s founder, Gavin McInnes.


Minutes after they left the event, some 30 members of the group took part in the beating, which allegedly began when three anti-fascist protesters knocked a “Make America Great Again” hat off the head of a Proud Boy member.

The lesson seems to be, "Leave other people's property alone" whether it be a hat or a camera.

***************************************

Now, if that mob-guy was close enough to the protester for him to be able to "knock his hat off of his head,"  the mob-guy was way to close and probably invading the protester's space while threatening him in his face.  So I guess the "stand your ground" law applies here...a "MOB" of 30 right-wingers against 3 progressive protesters.  Yeah, that seems like a fair fight.  NOT!!!!

Now,  THIS is a real MOB!!!!   They are radical right-winged VIOLENT men who do what violent men in a mob do--they fight, make war, hurt others for no other reason than they can.   So where is the republican outcry about the violent behavior of these men?  They're not just talking--expressing their opinion;trying to be heard.  They are (proud) boys who should be ashamed... gone violently wild!  Disgusting!

"Antifa attacks again — swords and vandalism at New York GOP office @FoxNewsNight"

 

It's no mystery how the right is so ill informed.

I do believe dt would love to see a civil war break out in America.  He would claim victory over all those he hates, and there are many.  These thugs are taking his words seriously.  Kill someone in the street and there will be no consequences.  Yes he and his cult are that golden.

The Proud Boys — a group of self-described “male chauvinists” led by McInnes, one of the founders of Vice — were holding an event at the club that according to McInnes, featured a recreation of the assassination of a Japanese socialist.

 

Photos and videos posted on social media caught the violence that broke out between the Fred Perry polo-clad Proud Boys and protestors of the event.
