A FBI affiliated "opposition" group.

The Proud Boys are/were an American group, much hyped in corporate media as the next big threat, battling the equally hyped Antifa. Mysterious in nature, in 2021, deep state ties were revealed: The leader, Enrique Tarrio, was exposed as an undercover FBI informant, leading to the question if the group was just a Deep State operation.

Official narrative

Neo-fascist terrorist group. The Southern Poverty Law Center called the group an "alt-right fight club". The Anti-Defamation League described the Proud Boys as "extremist conservative" and "alt lite", "overtly Islamophobic and misogynistic", "transphobic and anti-immigration".

Police informer

Enrique Tarrio, the leader of the Proud Boys extremist group, was informer for federal and local law enforcement, repeatedly working undercover for investigators after he was arrested in 2012, according to a former prosecutor and a transcript of a 2014 federal court proceeding.[1]

In the Miami hearing, a federal prosecutor, a Federal Bureau of Investigation agent and Tarrio’s own lawyer described his undercover work and said he had helped authorities prosecute more than a dozen people involving various cases involving drugs, gambling and human smuggling.

Shillman is also one of the backers of Project Veritas, an organization affiliated with the Proud Boys who are increasingly believed to have played a leading role in the violent storming of the Capitol. The Canadian parliament has already called on the government to treat groups such as the Proud Boys as terrorist organizations from now on. The United States appears to be following that lead.”Geert Wilders2021
