Violent protests ‘are not welcome here’

NewImageHere’s the interesting thing. Only the SPLC labels “Proud Boys” a hate group. 

The FBI says that they are not an extremist group (see also here). 

But because of the SPLC’s label, we have much drama and injuries have occurred. I’m glad that they have sued the SPLC. I hope that Gavin McInnes takes them for everything they’ve got. 

PORTLAND, Ore. — The mayor of Portland, Ore., said Wednesday anyone planning violence or espousing hatred at a weekend protest by right-wing groups in the liberal city “are not welcome here.”

Mayor Ted Wheeler spoke at a rally with other city leaders ahead of the event Saturday, which is also expected to bring out anti-fascist protesters. Anticipating trouble, none of the city’s nearly 1,000 police officers will have the day off Saturday

The Saturday event is being organized by a member of the Proud Boys, who have been designated by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group.
