More Proud Boys charged for Manhattan riot — including secret unnamed indictments

Published

on

Court records show that eight members of the far-right “Proud Boys” group have been charged over their alleged involvement in an October street brawl with anti-fascist protesters in New York City.

Data scientist and hate group researcher Emily Gorcenski noted on Twitter that there appear to be two more names added to the list of defendants for the October 12 fight that went largely ignored by the NYPD at the time.

“New York State court records show two more names on the Proud Boy case number: Jake Freijo and Erik Kaczynski,” Gorcenski tweeted alongside a screenshot of all the defendants’ names.

In subsequent tweets, the data scientist said the two additional Proud Boys face charges similar to the other group members related to rioting and assault.

Until Gorcenski publicized the updated defendant list, it was only known that six Proud Boys had been charged in relation to the brawl.

In a video announcing his resignation from the group, Vice co-founder and Proud Boys leader Gavin McInnes referred to the “NYC 9” who were charged for the fight.

It remains unclear who the ninth defendant may be.

McInnes said in his resignation video that he was “reluctantly” quitting to help “alleviate [the members’] sentencing” and prove that the Proud Boys are not a “gang.” He released the video days after news broke that the FBI considers the group “extremists” with “ties to white nationalism.”

Trump goes off on ‘socialist, communist’ rant saying Democrats are ‘pro Al-Qaeda’

Published

President Donald Trump took his racist comments even further Monday afternoon, saying that Democrats are now pro-terrorism.

"We will never be a Socialist or Communist Country. IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY HERE, YOU CAN LEAVE!" Trump ranted. "It is your choice, and your choice alone. This is about love for America. Certain people HATE our Country. They are anti-Israel, pro Al-Qaeda, and comment on the 9/11 attack, “some people did something.” Radical Left Democrats want Open Borders, which means drugs, crime, human trafficking, and much more. Detention facilities are not Concentration Camps! America has never been stronger than it is now – rebuilt Military, highest Stock Market EVER, lowest unemployment and more people working than ever before. Keep America Great!"

‘Bond is dead’: White dudes flip out over casting of a black woman as next Agent 007

Published

on

On Monday, the Daily Beast reported that the new 007 -- the special agent in the James Bond series -- will be portrayed by the black actress Lashana Lynch.

The announcement set off predictably racist and sexist reactions.

Perhaps the most prominent right-winger to voice his displeasure was Ben Shapiro, who complained that it didn't make sense for Bond to be a woman because of the character's signature seduction moves.

"Bond is about the guns and the girls," Shapiro said, noting that a woman in a seductive role was not realistic.

REVEALED: The government just ‘dramatically’ expanded its investigation of Jeffrey Epstein

Published

on

Federal investigators have been able to “dramatically expand” their investigation into financier and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein as prosecutors bring sex trafficking charges against him, Assistant U.S. Attorney Alex Rossmiller said in court on Monday.

The government revealed the expansion of the case at the day’s bail hearing. In searching the defendant’s house, investigators found an old passport with Epstein picture and a fake name that listed Saudi Arabia as the location of his residence, the prosecutor said.

The judge was surprised at this revelation, NBC News reported, asking the attorney, “Say again?”
