Late Friday night, following an event at the Metropolitan Republican Club of New York, a mob of approximately 30 members of the Proud Boys was filmed attacking and beating several men in the street, reports Heavy.
The attacks followed a speech by one of the founders of the group, Gavin McInnes.
In multiple videos posted to Twitter and YouTube, a group of men can be seen suddenly running down the street and then gathering as two or three men are pummeled and then kicked while on the ground.
According to filmmaker Sandi Bachom, the attack began after “a protester tried to take their MAGA hat they wear brutally kicked and punched.”
Filmmaker Andrew Kimmel, formerly of Buzzfeed, provided more context and supplied additional photos of the fights, which can be seen below.

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

If U.S. media were describing an event like this in another country, it’d be written as a “violent pro-Trump street gang” or a “fascist gang.”
Yet outlets here will still describe the Proud Boys as a “right-wing group” & its founder, Gavin McInnes, as a mere “provocateur” https://t.co/ZzkoeFe23E

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

MSNBC’s Morning Joe and Mika troll Donald Trump with brutal fact-check of his jealous attacks on Obama
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski busted President Donald Trump's latest jealous attacks on his predecessor.
President Barack Obama noted the 11th anniversary Monday of the Recovery Act he signed, which set the stage for more than a decade of economic growth from depths of the worst recession in decades, and Trump lashed out hours later by calling those readily observable claims a "con job."
Buttigieg says Trump can ‘do chores’ if he’s unwilling to leave White House
Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg joked on Monday about what he would do if President Donald Trump is unwilling to leave the White House after a 2020 loss.
During a campaign event in Reno, a voter worried that Trump might call his loss a hoax if the election is close.
"I mean, if he won't leave, I guess if he's willing to do chores, we can work something out," the candidate said to laughter and cheers.
Buttigieg argued that the best way to prevent Trump from "cheating" is to win by a significant margin.
"At the end of the day, there's only one president," he explained. "This is one of the reason we not just eke out a win, not just club everybody over the head and hope that we get to 51% and our Twitter followers outnumber your Twitter followers and we somehow piece together a squeaker."
C-SPAN caller scorched by Muslim comedian for ignoring Jesus after she rants ‘gays are abomination to God’
Comedian Dean Obeidallah, who is Muslim, told a C-SPAN caller that Republicans are not following the teachings of Jesus Christ even though they may oppose abortion and other policies advocated by evangelicals.
"I am independent," Pam, who called from Arkansas, told Obeidallah. "I vote according to my conscience of who would Jesus vote for if he were here on Earth. And he would not vote a group of people who believe in murdering children in the womb, on gays, which is an abomination to God, on false gods from other countries."
Obeidallah, who hosts a SiruisXM radio program, replied with a lesson on the Christian savior.
