    Proud Boys say they are 'standing down and standing by' after Trump's debate callout

    "The Proud Boys, a far-right extremist group, pledged allegiance to President Donald Trump on Tuesday night after he told the group to "stand back and stand by" during the first presidential debate."

    "Many people on social media who identify with the group echoed that language, saying they were "standing down and standing by." One known social media account for the group made "Stand back. Stand by" part of its new logo."

    "The Proud Boys, a self-described "Western chauvinist" organization, is considered a violent, nationalistic, Islamophobic, transphobic and misogynistic hate group, according to the Anti-Defamation League, a nonprofit organization that tracks extremist groups. Proud Boys members marched at the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, and have organized against Black Lives Matter protests in recent months."

    "Proud Boys organizer Joe Biggs also posted after the debate that he was "standing by," and he said the president "basically said to go xxxx them up."

    Anyone watching the debate saw Trump flustered and flailing when confronted with the concept of speaking against such a key part of his base. He just couldn't do it. I never imagined we would have a president that couldn't condemn white supremacy. But hey, TDS, owning the libs, and all that. You cons must be so "proud" today.

    Trump is afraid of losing the white supremacist vote by saying something like "there is no place for that in America" ... that is the state of the Republican party today.

    Yeah, it probably deserves its own thread.

    A LOT to be proud of here. Part of their initiation apparently is to name 5 breakfast cereals while repeatedly getting punched in the face. Somewhat similar to Trump's cognitive functioning test of which he is so incredibly proud.

    The hypocrisy of the left on this website is astounding to me. How many things did Biden refuse to own last night? Court stacking. His refusal to stand behind the law and order community. His waffling on the Green New Deal. His refusal to admit that Sanders' health care plan, now Biden's health care plan, denies Americans the right to acquire and seek their own private insurance and providers. Remove the splinter in your eye before you try to describe the log in your enemy's eye.

    Good grief. Yes, he did refuse to answer the court question. He made his support for the police very clear. He also made it clear that his plan is not the Green New Deal.
    You're wrong about private health insurance ...

    What's that, one for four?

    I wish that was the Joe Biden we were getting. Court stacking, Defund the police, abolishing private healthcare, M4A and GND Biden sounds way better than the guy I saw last night.

    waffling on policy or issues isn’t in the same universe as waffling on racism and giving a wink and a nod to a racist organization. Every politician waffles on the former, none in the last fifty years have waffled on the latter, let alone the president. If you can’t see that, I am not sure anyone can help you see the difference.

    Awesome, hope they're still standing by when Trump goes to prison; I'd suggest they could all share a cell block, but I think Trump will be going to Country Club Fed, while these idiots are going to be somebody's ol' lady.

    The mileage the right has gotten out of 3 guys in Philadelphia 12 years ago is astounding.

    How are the proud boys considered white supremacist when they have tons of minorities? Why does everybody Feel the need to over use this word- it’s literally just taking away the shock value of the word.

    Between Two Ferns with Republicans (episode 2)
    Q: well, that was a rough go. I can’t believe he didn’t denounce white supremacy. Did the bother you?
    A: I didn’t hear that. He has answered 100% he is against white supremacy and denounced it. His response to the question in the debate was to a ridiculous question that should never have been asked.
    Q: (dafuq?) Interesting. So, do you agree he effectively told the nation that he wanted the Proud Boys to be ready for when he needs to call on them?
    A: why is that any different than ANTIFA?
    Q: Well, it is because the Biden camp is not asking ANTIFA to stand by to be ready, but really, does it bother you that he is holding up on the national stage a group like the Proud Boys?
    A: it is a false question. He 100% denounced racist groups in past statements. There isn’t anything of relevance to the question. This is a false talking point.

    Alright, that ends this episode. Until next time.
