Proud Boys plan to 'take over' Joe Biden's inauguration disguised as supporters: 'Revolt motherf**kers'
Enrique Tarrio, the leader of the group, instructed members to attend the presidential inauguration in Washington DC and turn it into a 'f**king circus'
Members of the far-right, neo-fascist group, the Proud Boys, are reportedly planning to disguise themselves as fans of President-elect Joe Biden to create chaos during the presidential inauguration on January 20. The right-wing militants were ordered to "kick off this presidency with f***ing fireworks" as part of the plot which was revealed on InfoWars alum Joe Biggs' YouTube channel.
Enrique Tarrio, the leader of the group which has often been accused of political violence in the past, instructed members to attend the inauguration in Washington D.C and "take over", a November 20 episode of The War Boys revealed. He said: "Revolt motherf**kers. Do whatever you got to do to f**king get your tickets. You show up there in Biden gear and you turn his inauguration into a f**king circus, a sign of resistance, a sign of revolution. You f**king kick off this presidency with f**king fireworks."
In the very first episode of the YouTube show, Biggs characterized the political divide as one between "good and evil". He has also branded Democrats as "con artists" and "evil scum" who “deserve to die a traitor’s death" in the past.
While Trump acknowledged Biden's presidential win in the 2020 election, the Proud Boys have denounced the president-elect's victory, despite the fact that the former VP's win was cemented in history after the Electoral College cast its vote in his favor earlier this week. Just a day before the electoral voters were scheduled to vote, the group's members clashed with their left-wing counterparts over the weekend on the streets of Washington.
During the first election debate in September, Trump received a fair bit of backlash for not clearly condemning white supremacist groups like the Proud Boys. When debate moderator Chris Wallace asked Trump if he was willing to condemn white supremacists and militia groups and tell them to "stand down", he agreed. The president asked, "Who would you like me to condemn?" to which Biden interjected, saying "The Proud Boys". The president then urged the Proud Boys to "stand back and stand by".
Meanwhile, security precautions around the Capitol and the White House have been amped up as Biden's inauguration date nears. Low-flying helicopters were seen swooping around town as part of the safety measures. The inaugural platform is being constructed from scratch by the Architect of the Capitol.
Traditionally, it is supposed to hold more than 1,600 people, including the president and vice president, members of Congress, Supreme Court justices and the outgoing president and vice president.
Trump had previously hinted that he might not attend the January 20 event welcoming his successor. Very recently, a CNN report said that the POTUS "told some advisers that he will refuse to leave the White House on Inauguration Day, only to be walked down from that ledge.”
The possibility of Trump simply choosing to squat in the Washington DC residence without rhyme or reason post-January 20, has alarmed many White House aides, although most of them believe that he will ultimately not follow through with his claims. "He's throwing a f**king temper tantrum," an adviser reportedly said. "He's going to leave. He's just lashing out."
