    What exactly are they proud of?

    I saw the Good Ol' Boys in The Blues Brothers.

    The Proud Boys are a specific group. What is it you want to know?

    False equivalence seems to be your go-to tool in the Trump Blindness Syndrome toolbelt.

    Biden repeatedly denounced violence and rioting, and did so again in the debate. And yes, Biden said that Trump's FBI director said Antifa is an idea, not an organization. This is factually correct. The FBI director said that. It does not make Biden "as bad as Trump", sorry, it just makes him more accurate.

    Anyone else that says Antifa is an idea, or is it only the director saying that with Biden singing in concert that Antifa is just an idea?

    A stand alone group or a branch group of another group yet to be named?

    They might actually be a group of good, open-minded dads and schoolteachers for all we know, who only seek to denounce violence and destruction by the radical left.

    I don’t know.

    I only know that Biden said something factually true and pertinent about Antifa while also unambiguously condemning violence.

    Trump on the other hand ... not so much.

    Comparing the two, as usual, is like comparing apples to racist fascist oranges.

    Why do you ask? Would the answer make Biden “as bad as Trump”? Again: if that is your refrain, look inward.

    Its ok if your in denial about Biden. I think the two while at odds with each other, are perfect mirror images nonetheless.

    Maybe. But Trump was asked a pretty specific question about white supremacists and far-right militias.

    Why isn’t that a softball question? “I condemn violent white supremacists”. Easy. This question is a slow pitch down the center of home plate ... unless you’re kind of a racist. Which Trump is.

    Here’s a fun game. The following quote, do you think it’s real or fake?

    “I've condemned it [violence] across the board ... Joe Biden still hasn't condemned the far-left folks coming out and protesting and using violence. ... Yes, I do condemn violent white supremacists and violence no matter who it is.”

    What do you think Cooky? Twilight Hue? Trump would totally say this right?

    Oh wait actually that is what Biden said when he condemned Antifa. Oops!

    But Trump definitely thinks this and is the same as Biden, clearly.

    You’re factually wrong. We have both candidates on the record. See post #75.

    As to whether Proud Boys is a subgroup of a larger organization?

    No. Just the contrast between the official site and the wiki description.

    I see, so not related to your question.
