Leader of Proud Boys Ignites Brawl in Manhattan

A fight sparked in the Upper East Side with about a dozen involved and now the police are now searching for those dozen. It all started when Proud Boys leader Gavin McInnes made an appearance at the Manhattan Republican Club and just when him and his group were leaving, they crossed paths with a group of anti-fascists  protesters.Slurs and expletives can be heard in video showing the fight, as men kicked and punched several protesters on the sidewalk. The NYPD released footage Monday showing the altercation from an alternate angle in hopes of identifying the participants.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center says their leaders and members “regularly spout white nationalists memes and maintain affiliations  with known extremists”. As of right now, the police are still searching for multiple members of the Proud Boys group after the brawl.
