EXCLUSIVE: Leaked Proud Boys Chats Show Members Plotting Violence At Rallies - 2019-05-22
The Proud Boys want the public to believe that they're a "drinking club" who only resort to violence to defend themselves from anti-fascist protesters during political rallies.
But in private, these extremists have discussed injuring and even killing their adversaries, plotting tactics and optics for months in order to assert a claim of self-defense should they face charges.
According to private chat logs obtained exclusively by HuffPost, the punch-happy, pro-Trump street gang was particularly excited for its "Resist Marxism" rally, scheduled for April 6 in Providence, Rhode Island. With the right plan of attack, members said, this one could put them back on the map.
