On November 17, 2019, #ProudBoy Joe Biggs posted to Instagram and Twitter that he was having dinner with Lindsay Graham and Donald Trump at Trump International in DC. From the group's early days even up to the present, #ProudBoys have several connections to GOP politicians.

@igd_news @igd_news 5/ recently did which saw the simultaneous and sustained shutdown of ports, bridges, railways, highways, ferries, etc but hardly made a difference in the economy overall. Keeping in mind the power of tech (ddos etc), and central structures of power (servers, wallstreet) could be essential.

@igd_news 4/ I think we put too much stock in traditional methods of economic disruption. Modern companies make a majority of their money by simply moving money in various ways, and though a massive general strike & physical blockading of movements of goods may cause some economic turmoil, the real action happens in the offices of wall street. If they believe the state will take back control of the situation, things may take a dip temporarily, but ultimately the juggernaut will continue. Canada

@igd_news dynamics under a democratic wh. Will the right accept biden? The cops are a sitting army. We have already seen the forces they brought out for standing rock, which was every acronym in the book plus private mercenaries etc. All this to say, we should continue to evaluate and re-evaluate scenarios and try not to underestimate the role of training/organization/communication these groups have & can muster.

@igd_news 2/
As contemporary examples... Germany, Italy, Spain etc as historical examples. The police have a force of approx 800,000 country wide, which is substantial considering their training and hours logged in active violent scenarios. Election night also seems to be a potential flashpoint which wasn't touched on enough imo, which may see deaths on both sides & may lead to more street battles regardless of what happens in the wh/statehouses. Which leads to what happens with right/left

Just listened to the new @igd_news podcast. Thought it was super well done, but also downplays the role of the cops. On may 15th the cops were fairly restrained. They've been been pretty restrained in comparison to the rhetoric among their departments. As in, they haven't been using live ammunition and I don't think we should rule that out as a possibility, especially considering historical and contemporary examples of right militias + cops joining forces. Michael Reinhold + kenosha come to mind

Who are the #ProudBoys that #Trump is telling to 'stand by' and attack anyone that protests, or votes against him? Here's the #ProudBoys in their own words. #WhiteSupremacy

Trump *puts proud boys on standby*
Sharps, Antifascists, Communists, Brown Berets:

Tonight #Trump refused to condemn #WhiteSupremacy + called on the neo-fascist group the #ProudBoys to "stand by." Trump has already stated he will refuse to accept anything other than an electoral win. Now he's commanding violent far-Right groups to fight for him in the streets. t.co/mKGI8efXVE

Led by Unite the Right attendee, Latinos for Trump director + former InfoWars 'reporter,' the Proud Boys are holding a protest in #Portland today they claim will be a "powder keg," "10 fold" the violence of previous events. An anti-racist festival is planned miles away. A thread.

Trump says "antifa is a dangerous radical group, and you better be careful with them, or they'll overthrow you in a few seconds"

Yes.

proud boys Portland. 

Proud boys in Portland tonight. Be careful everybody.

#Portland police have arrested anti-fascists for having shields today - yet far-Right and fascist groups openly arming themselves. t.co/5QvAuVUaOj

With Proud Boys "rally" over, extremists gear up with shields and paintball guns and look ready to ride around shooting people in Portland.

This is what Trump and Bill Barr are actually afraid of - as are the Proud Boys. Deep seeded organizing, working to foster lasting relationships, mutual aid, direct action, and community building creating a broad based popular movement. #Portland t.co/ATXlvSPZlq

Huge crowd! Easily 1000. Speeches from the gazebo. Everyone wearing masks

This feels real good

Proud Boys involved in today's rally in #Portland have attempted to re-brand it as a "peaceful BBQ" - a lie which no one seems to be taken seriously, considering the entire crowd is decked out in tactical gear. Note, there is no planned direct counter-rally. t.co/MQ86k4pp77

Incredible work! We've been seeing so many positive messages from folks about the intention outreach happening near Peninsula Park.

These are our neighbors and we will do everything we can to keep each other safe!
