Fight Between Police and Proud Boys

In viral videos circulating online, police in Salem, Oregon, and the far-right group the Proud Boys appear to be fighting with one another.

In one video, Proud Boys members appear shocked by the treatment they are receiving by police while they protest downtown near the state capitol on New Year’s Day. In an apparent response to the treatment, members later desecrated a “blue lives matter” flag. Controversial independent journalist Brendan Gutenschwager posted footage after Salem police declared an unlawful assembly Friday afternoon following rallies near the capitol building. 

the police aggressively push a Proud Boy down, and dispersal messaging plays on the police’s loudspeaker system. The confusion in the faces of Proud Boys is telling of the relationship they believed they had with the police.

The development is being seen with intrigue and cynicism, given police have been accused of having an “extra-friendly” relationship with the Proud Boys and other far-right organizations in the past on numerous occasions and have even been outed as members of said organizations.

“When they stand for BLM and antifa, they have fallen,” she says.

As they make a show of stomping on the flag, another man screams at the police: “We’ve been there for you all year!”

An officer on a bullhorn responds, “Only one punishment for treason.”
