The Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes banned members from attending the Charlottesville rally. Now the group has named Enrique Tarrio as chairman. Here’s Tarrio, in Charlottesville.
Enrique Tarrio was the leader of the Proud Boys Miami chapter. In an interview following the rally in Charlottesville, Tarrio said: “After I saw the tiki torch thing, I was completely against it.” It didn’t stop him from attending Unite the Right the very next day.
In the photo below from the deadly Charlottesville rally, Tarrio is wearing the patch of the Fraternal Order of Alt-Knights (FOAK), the now defunct paramilitary wing of the Proud Boys.
Tarrio was also photographed at an August 4, 2018 rally in Portland, OR with other members of The Proud Boys.

The photo also shows members of the Proud Boys and Patriot Prayer wearing t-shirts that praise Augusto Pinochet, the brutal Chilean dictator. The shirts were made by a former white nationalist clothing company.
Alongside Tarrio in the photo from Portland were two others who attended the Unite the Right: in Charlottesville Christopher Ritchie (center) and Shane Reeves (left). Both were also members of violent Fraternal Order of Alt-Knights (FOAK).…
While technically defunct, FOAK saw headlines recently when former member Irvin Antillon was arrested for his alleged involvement in a brawl that took place outside a Gavin McInnes event at Metropolitan Republican Club.…
Antillon was another former Fraternal Order of Alt-Knights member who attended the Unite the Right who has remained active in this network.…
The Proud Boys are a hate group.…
