3 arrested after NY street brawls following far-right event

A Brooklyn resident was arrested during a violent clash that occurred after a speech by the founder of a far-right group.

Following a Friday night event at the Metropolitan Republican Club of NY which featured a speech by founder Gavin McInnes, a mob of the extremists group was filmed attacking and beating several men in the street.

According to a police report, three of the protesters chased after a Proud Boys supporter as he left the building, ultimately punching him and taking his backpack. Not on the same weekend, not in NY.

Journalist Shay Horse tweeted about the fight involving "30 (proud boys) V 3 (randoms)", adding, "It ended with 30 proud boys pummeling a guy on the ground screaming, 'ARE YOU BRAVE NOW FAGGOT?!'" They were arraigned Saturday on charges of assault and petit larceny and were released on their own recognizance.

Gibson had organized a "flash march for Law and Order" toward downtown, where Black Lives Matter activists and others had set up a memorial for police shooting victim Patrick Kimmons.

"The Portland Police Bureau's objectives for today's events were to provide a safe environment for everyone, including participants, non-participants and bystanders", Chief Danielle Outlaw said in a statement issued shortly after the brawls ended last night.

In New York, politicians have had enough.

"So the president is on the stump today saying 'the Democrats are a mob, the Democrats will bring chaos, they are leftists, ' and then coincidentally, the Republican Party in the State of NY invites a group known for violence and for hate speech".

"Why would the Republican Party at their main club invite the Proud Boys?"

"I'm asking the state police to assist, and I'm asking the Federal Bureau of Investigation to assist", Cuomo told reporters.

The Republican Club had been vandalized ahead of the speech, with officials saying the damage included smashed windows, a spray-painted door and a keypad lock covered in glue.
