Proud Boys proudly run like wussies from Portland PD

I'd LMAO, but it only shows they were never "pro police".

Saying that won't fix the problem, which is that they are Americans who no longer subscribe to American values.

The Proud Boys are nothing but a bunch of hooligans who have never matured beyond the middle school playground bully stage. Their kind either end up dead or in jail.

That was interesting.

Do you think any of them will have subsequently thought:

"Hmm maybe that group of people protesting all summer about police behaviour might have a point after all? Now, what were they called.."

In other words, I didnt expect them leopards to start eating my face.

"Back the Blue" from the fascists is very much a transactional position. They like the cops when either the cops beat up their political enemies, or, more likely, look the other way while fascists engage in extralegal violence themselves.

It's routine to see these overt fascists or MAGA CHUDs having a freakout whenever they are the subject of even the lowest level of crowd control policing. It's quite clear that they believe the violence of the state should only apply to their enemies.

Plenty of examples of police tacitly acknowledging this arrangement, and the disparity in police response when it comes to right wing vs left wing demonstrations is undeniable. The few examples of this arrangement failing does not mean that the police are not broadly sympathetic to the fascist ideology.

There should have been a bard with a lute behind them:

"Brave Proud Boys ran away.
Bravely ran away away.
When danger reared it's ugly head,
They bravely turned their tail and fled.
Yes, brave Proud Boys turned about
And gallantly they chickened out.
Swiftly taking to their feet,
They beat a very brave retreat.
Bravest of the brave, the Proud Boys!"

TBH, I don't think they know what 'ideology' means. There was a point in Trump's 'rally' when he yelled that the election results were, 'An explosion of ********!' and the crowd responded, '********! ********!'

Not the sharpest cards in the pack.

Would be good if someone made a meme...see if we can make it go viral... I sadly have neither the talent nor patience for the process.

Too long for meme, unfortunately. Memes have (usually) format readable even by drooling imbeciles for reason.

Fascist ideology isn't nuanced, but it's an ideology.

Another shining example of LEO doing their jobs.

Of course they lost their minds as soon as the cops stopped dapping them up and telling them how they're on the same side, because "Blue Lives Matter", "Law and Order", and so on never meant anything outside of white supremacism.

Too bad for this thoery that many of those being arrested have long histories of involement with the Maga movement.
And, anyway Antifa is nowhere near capable enough to pull off something like this.
Not a big Antifa fan at all, but blaming them for this is idiotic.

95% of the PB are basically poltroons (someone who brags and swagger about how brave they are but chicken out when put to the test) who talk big but won't do anything; but it's the other 5% we have to worry about.
THye are the Klan without the Halloween costumes.

Antifa for a non-organization is so damn clever. They infiltrated the Right Wing loony groups years ago just waiting to be activated at times like these.

Hold on a minute.

The proud boys like to hang out in male company.

They like dressing up in uniform.

They attend rallies that play a lot of Elton John and they dance to YMCA.

They don't masturbate, because that would be gay.

The mostly peaceful protestors who beat a cop to death?

Not clear on this OP. The video shows the proud bitches being openly confrontational with police, and retreating when being clubbed and shot with paintball guns amidst a cloud of gas (pepper?). People generally do back off when being shot and hit with batons, yeah. Not sure if that makes them wussies. Their ideology and tactics already did that.
