The latest news on the Proud Boys. An exclusively male group, Proud Boys are a far-right neo-fascist organization that promotes political and cultural violence. Loosely formed in 2016 by Vice Media co-founder and former commentator Gavin McInnes (who later distanced himself from the group), the organization grew in popularity when former President Donald Trump mentioned the group during a 2020 presidential debate.
