Proud Boys Manifesto
Proud Boy Politics
We are not a political group. We are a fraternal brotherhood like the Elks Lodge or the Shriners. We are multi-racial group that is socially liberal and welcomes gay members. Again, our only non-negotiable rule is that you are a Western Chauvinist who refuses to apologize for creating the modern world (much confusion revolves around the word chauvinist as women tend to assume it means “sexist” – it means “a person displaying aggressive or exaggerated patriotism”). Almost all our members are Pro-Trump but there are exceptions (our pope being one of them). We disavow Nazis and don’t want them at our meetups. We disavow racists and don’t want them at our meetups. We allow weak, beta male virgins to join because our fraternity is about helping men improve their lives and that includes all men. If, however, a Proud Boy refuses to step up to the plate- if he doesn’t heed our advice and try it – if he doesn’t assimilate and engage with the group, he will be asked to leave. Our founder Gavin McInnes (peace be upon him) often cites his “10 Ways to Save America” list as a compendium of Proud Western beliefs. Brothers don’t have to ascribe to all of these, but it does provide a good idea of where we stand.
10 WAYS TO SAVE AMERICA
There are too many men in prison right now and we need to fix this mass incarceration problem. This obviously doesn’t mean bust open the gates right now. It means we need to start going in the opposite directions and recognize the people we are putting in cages are human beings. The following points lend themselves back to this one.
GIVE EVERYONE A GUN
Not for free, obviously, but gun laws are too strict in about 80% of the country and 90% of the western world. Right now, it’s mostly bad guys who have guns. Good guys need them too. This will help prevent crime.
The drug war is a failure. Take away the profits from drugs and you take away gangs and soon prisons are losing their best customers.
Right now, we have incentivized single mothers. This has shattered families, especially poor families. Stop rewarding single mothers for leaving their husbands and we get the family back. With fathers comes discipline and empowerment. With jobs comes less crime.
CLOSE THE BORDERS
We have strayed from a merit-based immigration policy and have replaced it with open borders. We need to build a wall and encourage assimilation. No more Spanish schools or Chinese schools. Everyone speaks English and patriotism is encouraged.
The West has thrived with checks and balances open discussion provides. Without it, fascism thrives. We need to fight for free speech not just against the government, but against the people who want to shut it down. We are now policing ourselves worse than Big Brother. That needs to stop. Free speech includes all speech – good and bad – and a huge part of this brotherhood is making sure nobody is prevented from speaking. This is arguably our most important cause.
VENERATE THE HOUSEWIFE
Proud Boys are encouraged to put a ring on it and knock her up. We need to make more Proud Boys. The young are encouraged to sow their wild oats, but as we get older, committing to a family becomes more and more important. With the family, comes a deep respect for the housewife. We push back against the feminist notion that shaping human lives is somehow “selling out.” We see housewives as sentient beings who have as incredible gift.
GLORIFY THE ENTREPRENEUR
Western liberalism scoffs at rich and those who put it all on the line to improve our lives. We recognize the incredible sacrifice this takes, and we are in awe of all the great entrepreneurs throughout history who got us here.
RECOGNIZE THE WEST IS THE BEST
This is just a fact. America was not stolen from the Indians and it was not built on slavery. Europe and Britain were not built on colonization. We fought hard to be #1 and we won. All other cultures are not merely different than us. They are worse.
SHUT DOWN THE GOVERNMENT
We have no respect for the institutions that rob us of our hard-earned wages. We don’t expect another man to handle our freedom and determine our destiny. We may not be anarchists, but we always want the government brought down to the absolute minimum.
