The first-ever Right Richter Special Report covers the phenomenon that is the Proud Boys adult "Western chauvinist" fraternity. It's like Old School, but with uncomfortable racial and sexual subtext!

I suspect that the Proud Boys will soon get a good amount of media attention, now that antifascist protesters crashed their founder's NYU speech last week. Unlike many alt-right developments that have scored press, the Proud Boys actually do have members who show up to real-life events.

Be warned, though: this is a mindbender. As one right-wing critic of the Proud Boys said in a video explaining their rules: "I shouldn't know about any of this… I can't relate to anyone in my life anymore."
