2 Proud Boys Members Convicted of Assaulting Anti-Fascist Protesters in New York

HeadlineAug 21, 2019

Two members of the Proud Boys were convicted in New York City Monday for assaulting anti-fascist protesters during a street fight last year after an event at the Metropolitan Republican Club featuring Gavin McInnes. Eight other people were arrested in connection with the fight, in which members of the far-right group were caught on camera physically assaulting the anti-fascist protesters. Maxwell Hare and John Kinsman will be sentenced in October. Click here to see our discussion of the Proud Boys and their rally in Portland, Oregon, this past weekend.
