Proud Boys, a pro-Trump group, appears to have beaten a small group of Antifa protesters in the streets of Manhattan on Friday night, following an appearance at the Metropolitan Republican Club by Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes.

After the attack, members of the Proud Boys posed for a group photo, according to photographer Shay Horse, who was at the scene. "I haven’t seen a fight that violent in a long time," he tweeted. "The proud boys were totally ready and willing to be violent tonight. They didn’t even wear masks."
There is nothing libertarian about either of these groups, they are both power seekers who want to control statist power. Libertarians are about shrinking statist power.The Proud Boys even waited to do a group photo after the fights. They were hyped the fuck up after that.

Via CBS New York:
Three people were arrested in New York City following violent clashes after a speech by the founder of a far-right group, and police say they are reviewing video and may make additional arrests.
According to authorities, Finbarr Slonim, Kai Russo, and Caleb Perkins were taken into custody after police arrived at the Metropolitan Republican Club around 8 p.m. on Friday...
The NYPD says it’s unclear if the three men arrested were affiliated with either group, and added the department is reviewing video and will make other arrests “as warranted.”
