1/ THREAD

The trial of two #ProudBoys involved in the #NY9 incident began yesterday.

Defense contended #GavinMcInnes was a satirist whose work was taken out of context.

@ADL dir. @orensegal stated violence is a core tenant of Proud Boys charter.

2/ In 2017, (during an #IRB approved research project), I sought to probe Gavin’s #altright connections & explore the possibility that the #ProudBoys were a #radicalization vector.

Prior to this I had studied foreign #terrorism.

4/ As Gavin’s & the #ProudBoys actions show, #FreeSpeech/#1A is not truly valued, but rather used as a tactic to mobilize the #farright & to platform their views.

#RichardSpencer has said this explicitly. 👇

5/ There have been 100+ incidents involving the #ProudBoys since the they formed in 2016.

Their ideology becomes less ambiguous when you see the events they organize, the events they target, and the events they co-attend.

@rianagoren @ADL @splcenter
6/ #TimesUp for plausible deniability in 2019.

Please join me in and support a #data driven rebuttal to the claims that #GavinMcInnes is just a misunderstood satirist & #ProudBoys are just a fraternal drinking organization.
