The Trump administration has known since at least April that alleged white supremacists were responsible for every single act of race-based domestic terrorism in the U.S. in 2018, yet not only took no action to combat the growing right wing violent extremism, but actually substantially reduced or even eliminated funding and programs that combat white supremacist extremism, violence, and terrorism – and then blocked the data from reaching the hands of Congress. read more

Two members of the Proud Boys, a self-identified Western-chauvinist group, were convicted of assault for fighting with members of a leftist group on the streets after an event in New York.

A jury found Maxwell Hare, 27, of Harrisburg, Pa., and John Kinsman, 39, of Morristown, N.J., guilty of attempted gang assault, three charges of attempted assault and rioting.

Hare and Kinsman were among 10 members of the Proud Boys charged after the October street fight. All but three of them pleaded guilty to various charges; one faces trial later.

The brawl took place on Oct. 12, on Manhattan's Upper East Side. Members of the Proud Boys left an event at the Metropolitan Republican Club " where the group's founder, Gavin McInnes, had spoken " and encountered antifascists, or antifa activists, protesting, officials said.

Hare, Kinsman and other members of the Proud Boys taunted the protesters and made threats, according to Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr., before being dispersed by police.

Then Hare and Kinsman and other members of their group punched, kicked, elbowed and stomped the antifa activists about a block away, Vance said, before police intervened again.

"As violent extremism rises in America, a Manhattan jury has declared in one voice that New Yorkers will not tolerate mob violence in our own backyard," Vance said in a statement. "These defendants transformed a quiet, residential street into the site of a battle-royale, kicking and beating four individuals in a brutal act of political violence. I commend my office's prosecutors and investigators for their diligence in tracking these defendants down, and I thank the NYPD for their partnership in holding them accountable."
