Proud Boys Leader Threatens ‘We Will Kill You’ In Video Calling For Trump Supporters To Commit Violent Acts

Gavin McInnes, a far right extremist, made a violent declaration in a disturbing video in which he promotes his group, the “Proud Boys.”

“We will kill you,” he said in a segment of his video. “That’s the Proud Boys in a nutshell.”

“We will kill you. We look nice. We seem soft. We have ‘boys’ in our name. But like Bill the Butcher and the Bowery Boys, we will assassinate you.”

The Southern Poverty Law Center has officially designated the Proud Boys gang as a hate group, and the unapologetic founder casually makes threats throughout the clip that was posted by Vic Berger IV.

 

 

McInnes encouraged his boys donning MAGA hats to choke anyone with a “slight punk demeanor” if they criticized their headgear.

“If you’re wearing a MAGA hat and some guy with a slightly punk demeanor says, ‘Hey, are you … pro-Trump?’ choke him. Trust your instincts.”

“Don’t listen to what he has to say, choke him.”

 

 

 

McInnes also encouraged Donald Trump supporters to act out violently.

“Fighting solves everything. We need more violence from the Trump people.”

“Trump supporters: Choke a motherfucker. Choke a bitch. Choke a tranny. Get your fingers around the windpipe.”

“Get a fucking gun.”

“Get ready to blow someone’s fucking head off.”

“Get in trouble. Get arrested. Get fired. They can’t kill us all.”

 

 

 

 

 

In not so elegant terms, McInnes was described as someone who is:

 

 

Raw Story did note that it’s difficult to determine which phrases were uttered by the fascist group leader due to the frantic editing of the clip.

McInnes is also the co-founder of the North American digital media and broadcasting company, Vice Media.

The Proud Boys were recently involved in a violent altercation on October 15, 2018, when they were confronted by antifascist protestors on Park Avenue in New York City.

The two groups beating and kicking each other was caught on video, but existing footage does not reveal what sparked the physical altercation.

According to the Gothamist, one of the videos shows the Proud Boys kicking a protestor to the ground and shouting homophobic slurs.

NYC’s Public Advocate, Letitia James, issued a statement commenting on the aftermath of the altercation.

Governor Andrew Cuomo told reporters via phone calls on Monday that the Metropolitan Republican Club was responsible for the violent brawl after inviting the Proud Boys and its founder Gavin McInnes to their clubhouse.

“If you invite the Ku Klux Klan because the Republican party wants to demonstrate free speech, and the Klan marches down 5th Avenue, well don’t be surprised if there is violence,” Cuomo said.

“What did you think was going to happen when you marched the Klan up 5th Avenue?”

 

NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said the Strategic Response Officers didn’t make any arrests that night and claimed it wasn’t their responsibility. “We should not be scapegoating our cops who responded to a very chaotic scene,” he said.

Police are seeking to charge nine Proud Boys and three of the protestors from Friday as investigation into the incident continues.

According to the New Civil Rights Movement, the video in which McInnes called for violence has gone viral with over 185,000 views on Twitter in just 15 hours.
