Today, mass mobilizations are taking place in #Portland against threats from #ProudBoys that they will once against attack members of the public on the streets + in Burns, #Tennessee, where members of KKK and neo-Nazi groups are holding a conference with full police protection.
Be sure to follow @RoseCityAntifa, who has made a call (Chapman Sq, 12 PM) for broad community defense in the face of the #ProudBoys, who for several years, have violently attacked members of the public - all while working hand in hand with local police. itsgoingdown.org/proud-boy-call…
Here's long term Proud Boy and Patriot Prayer member, Tiny Toese, arguing on an Alt-Right podcast, that we welcomes "...real racists, real Alt-Right" at his rallies, as it offers a way for the far-Right to unite against social movements organizing for broad grassroots change.
Proud Boy Levi Romero, frequent fighter in #Portland, arguing that neo-Nazis are "his best friends" and all they want "is nationalism, what's wrong with that?" Says that "Alt-Lite" groups like the Proud Boys are the "biggest allies" to white nationalists.
Local #Portland area Proud Boys like Tiny Toese have also specifically called for an "anti-f*ggot movement," despite attempts by the #ProudBoys to portray themselves as not homophobic.
Other #ProudBoys, like Jeff Perrine who travels from #Sacramento to #Portland to attack people at far-Right rallies, openly called for full on murder of migrants by "smashing their heads into the concrete" and "separating them from their kids."
#ProudBoys adhere to the paleoconservatism of Pat Buchanan and not the full on white nationalism of the Alt-Right, yet many participated in the neo-Nazi Unite the Right rally, including the event's organizer, Jason Kessler, who was also a Proud Boy. itsgoingdown.org/unite-the-righ…
The group @PopMobPDX is also holding in solidarity (Lownsdale Square, 12 PM) with other groups like @RoseCityAntifa a milkshake themed queer dance party to "shake back the streets!"
Groups like PopMob have been doing some amazing work in recent months. We interviewed them on our podcast recently about community organizing that they did in the wake of a string of attacks on queer and trans people. itsgoingdown.org/this-is-americ…
Meanwhile in #Tennessee, be sure follow @JamCityAntifa for updates on the mobilization in #Burns. For some info on who is coming, check out this article. itsgoingdown.org/call-in-to-get…
