Following an event at the Metropolitan Republican Club of New York, a mob of approximately 30 members of the white nationalist “Proud Boys” was filmed savagely beating and kicking several individuals while shouting “faggot” and “cocksucker.”
According to filmmaker Sandi Bachom, the attack began after “a protester tried to take their MAGA hat they wear brutally kicked and punched.”
Multiple videos posted to social media captured the mob pummeling and then kicking the victims while on the ground.
According to Think Progress, the attack followed a speech by one of the founders of the group, Gavin McInnes.
McInnes’ lecture was about Otoya Yamaguchi, who himself was a member of an extremist right-wing group in Japan. In 1960, Yamaguchi stabbed Japan Socialist Party leader Inejiro Asanuma to death, and he has been celebrated as a hero of extreme nationalist groups.
McInnes claimed on Instagram that he would actually be “re-enacting this inspiring moment” at the event. That the Proud Boys were hyped to engage in violence of their own afterward appears to be no coincidence.
Twitter user and photojournalist Shay Horse followed the Proud Boys after they left the event and documented a group of about 30 Proud Boys “pummeling a guy on the ground screaming, ‘Are you brave now faggot?!’” He later noticed from his own photographs that several fights were playing out simultaneously. He also showed the Proud Boys proudly flashing white power hand symbols afterward.
The Proud Boys even waited to do a group photo after the fights. They were hyped the fuck up after that. Flashing their white power hand symbol before marching towards a downtown train. pic.twitter.com/JP6jiM8Yud

Tonight in NYC the #ProudBoys called people they considered to be “antifa” faggots as they beat them up. Gavin McInnes brandished a sword. The police provided them with protection. Then @FoxNews created this bullshit story. pic.twitter.com/AJoU91uLEH

Metropolitan republican club invited a violent fascist group to celebrate the murder of a Japanese socialist in 1960, and the proud boys afterwards took to the streets to beat people up, but fox is framing it exactly the opposite. https://t.co/5yRvMOoBd1
