The Canadian Government is designating the right-wing Proud Boys movement as a terrorist group, according to the Toronto Star, which reports that the "Western chauvinist" group is expected to be formally added to Canada's "terrorist entity" list later Wednesday - where they will join Al Qaida, Boko Haram, Hizballah, the Taliban and the Islamic State.
Of note, Antifa and BLM - whose members spent most of last Summer torching American cities, setting up "autonomous zones" with gun-dispensing warlords, and assaulting people for not raising their fists in solidarity -a re not on Canada's "terrorist entity" list.
I didn't realize Proud boys torched cities, and destroyed the lives of American people all summer long??🤔 I thought the Proud Boys defended Americans against legit terrorists as the police in Democratic run cities were made to stand down.

Members of the Proud Boys were present during the January 6 Capitol riot, during which a group of agitators were allowed to walk into the Capitol building, wreak havoc, and then casually walk out - with several participants arrested days later.
Of note, Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio was outed last week as a "prolific" FBI snitch, who repeatedly worked undercover for investigators following a 2012 arrest.
Curiously, Tarrio was ordered to stay away from Washington D.C. one day before the January 6 Capitol riot after he was arrested on vandalism and weapons charges - upon a request by government prosecutors that he be prohibited from attending. At least five Proud Boys members were charged as part of the riot.
In the 2014 hearing, a federal prosecutor, an FBI agent and Tarrio's attorney describe his undercover work - noting that the Proud Boys leader helped authorities prosecute over a dozen people in various cases involving drugs, gambling and human smuggling, according to Reuters.
