    Proud Boys Canada dissolves itself, says it was never a 'white supremacy' group

    Well, if it was not a "White Supremacist" group then why would Canada list it as a terrorist group and ban it, Canada and it's government and their Security Minister Billy Blair does not ban things just for the sake of banning what they do not like, right?

    What does have me a bit confused although is, isn't their leader a black dude?

    Proud Boys Canada dissolves itself, says it was never a 'white supremacy' group

    TORONTO -- Proud Boys Canada, a far-right group that Ottawa named as a terrorist entity earlier this year, has dissolved itself, saying it has done nothing wrong, according to a statement by the organization on Sunday.

    In February, Canada said the group posed an active security threat and played a "pivotal role" in the deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol in January by supporters of then-President Donald Trump. U.S. authorities have charged several members of the Proud Boys in connection with the Jan. 6 assault.

    "The truth is, we were never terrorists or a white supremacy group," the statement posted by the administrator of the official Proud Boys channel on Telegram said.

    "We are electricians, carpenters, financial advisors, mechanics, etc. More than that, we are fathers, brothers, uncles and sons," it added.

    Founded in 2016, the Proud Boys began as an organization protesting political correctness and perceived constraints on masculinity in the United States and Canada, and grew into a group that embraced street fighting.

    The group's founder, Gavin McInnes, is a Canadian who lives in the United States.

    Public Safety Minister Bill Blair said in February that the domestic intelligence forces had become increasingly worried about the group.

    Too late. CBC must be reading your posts.

    Proud Boys Canada may have disbanded 'in name only,' researchers warn

    Canadian members of the Proud Boys may continue to organize and promote hateful views even though the national organization has disbanded, researchers say, and there's already one indication that the most devoted members will create new, more extreme groups.

    "My suspicion is that they'll morph into something different. They'll emerge with a slightly new identity and a new name," Barbara Perry, director of Ontario Tech University's Centre on Hate, Bias and Extremism, told CBC News.

    "Some will walk away … but the real die-hards will continue to 'fight the good fight' as they see it."

    Canada says the neo-fascist group promotes misogynistic, white supremacist views and glorifies violence. It was banned from mainstream social media sites in 2018 and the federal government put the group on its official list of terrorist entities in February.
