Proud Boys enjoy their fame after being addressed by the president in the first Presidential debate. The group was since tagged with White supremacy, which they plan to clear out.
A joint news conference on Wednesday shot the notion of the right-wing group as White supremacists. The conference, held both by the local leaders of Proud Boys and Black Lives Matter, publicly denounced White supremacy after the former group was mentioned by President Trump in the September 29 debate.
Proud Boys Utah Chapter leader, Thad, said, “I will say this on behalf of the entire national organization — Proud Boys denounce White supremacy.”
“We are in no way, shape, or form, White supremacists,” the leader continued.
“We have a vetting system that gets those [White supremacists] out of our hair. We do not have anything to do with White supremacy. We do not have anything to do with the KKK (Ku Klux Klan). We denounce those organizations,” he concluded.
Seth, who is also a Proud Boy’s leader, echoed Thad’s sentiments.
“I don’t care what color your skin is. We’re all Americans, and we need to find a way to come together instead of divide,” Seth told reporters.
Meanwhile, one of the Black Lives Matter Northern Utah Chapter leaders, Jacarri Kelley, argued that a mutual discourse is possible even with differing principles.
“We do need to be able to reach across the aisle and have these tough conversations,” Kelley said. She relayed her meet-up with the Proud Boys leaders in Portland, Oregon, and their “productive conversation.”
Local news outlets have since covered the story, yet, surprisingly, we do not hear it from the national news media. The false narrative of the national media was shot down just instantly through the group’s press conference. Proud Boys has been the target without hearing their side of the story.
However, truth be told, the group just played a pawn in the Dems-controlled media schemes. White supremacist has long been used to attack President Trump’s campaign as the election draws near.
Unfortunately, though for the leftists, another card has been shot as the deck tumbles one by one. They can pull one out again, and let’s see how long it will stand.
