A fraternity group known as the ProudBoys, a club whose members identify as Western chauvinists, began receiving negative press from Canadian media outlets in July of this year when The Halifax Five – a group of ProudBoys who happened to be enlisted in the Canadian military, interrupted an anti Canada protest in Halifax where indigenous Canadians and as well as individuals consisting of other ethnicities were denouncing Canada’s history. The men were subsequently labeled racists who according to the media disrespected an “indigenous ceremony”. Throughout the last several months members of the ProudBoys have been finding themselves the targets of discrimination from various individuals and groups ranging from university student associations, to business establishments, to the mainstream media, to the far left radical gang known as Antifa.
No Pride Allowed!!!
Despite having nothing to do with the advocacy of white supremacy or bigotry in any form, reports of ProudBoys being kicked out of bars and pubs across southern Ontario for simply being identified as members of the frat club have found there way to this blogger via social media and word of mouth, including one incident that was covered by blogTO – a major blog here in Toronto.
Discriminating Without Investigating…
A number of establishments have been receiving baseless claims from progressives and social justice warriors that suggests the group is nothing more than a far right – white supremacist organization, demanding services or entry be disallowed to members of the ProudBoys. Disappointingly, several businesses like ‘Unlovable’ – a bar in Toronto, or ‘The Rose And Thistle’ of Brantford have elected to satisfy those demands despite not having done thorough research into who the ProudBoys are or what the club actually represents.
Stories involving similar incidences have people both on the the Left and the Right wondering what the hell is happening to our right to freedom of assembly and the right to free speech? Do those on the Right not get to enjoy freedoms and rights like the Left does? Is ‘open political expression’ a right reserved only for individuals on the Left end of the political spectrum? What exactly have the ProudBoys been guilty of that could validate the lefts accusations? Is the burden of proof not on the accuser?

Asian ‘White Supremacy’?
In any case, what is perhaps the most frustrating aspect to the whole situation is the fact that numerous ProudBoys being targeted in Canada and being deemed white supremacists are not White! As anyone who’s familiarized themselves with the group would know, the ProudBoys are actually a pretty diverse groups of individuals. So how on earth can they be considered “White Supremacists”??? The stupidity and ignorance of the Left never ceases to amaze!
I had the opportunity to speak with one member of the “controversial” group who was recently discriminated against for doing absolutely nothing offensive whatsoever. In fact, Chris is of Filipino ethnicity, nonetheless this inconvenient fact was overlooked, and he was blatantly discriminated against for expressing his political views.
