White Nationalist “Proud Boys” Had a Meet Up in a Mission Bar This Weekend

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

photo from Souther Pacific Brewing’s FB page

Apparently 20 or so Proud Boys met up at Southern Pacific Brewing Company for drinks on Friday night. The Proud Boys describe themselves as “pro-Western fraternal organization” which translates to white supremacist frat boys. Jesus, as if frat boys weren’t bad enough, now we have Nazi frat boys. Blech!

Anyways I was hipped to this by twitter user Nice Cactus, who sent me the following apology from Southern Pacific’s FB page:

Predictably, the commenters had a field day. And they bring up very valid points: why have security if they don’t keep out people perceived as dangerous? Reading the Facebook reviews it seems like the security company has disallowed entrance to people for far less.

The Twitter account ‏ first tweeted about the Proud Boy hangout it was occurring on Friday night.

The Resistance SF Facebook page then shared the tweet on Saturday morning and followed up with this image to help folks identify hate groups when they see them:

Given that it’s Fleet Week and Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, there’s probably a number of White Supremacists in town. So look out for the above symbols and stay safe.

    I understand lil sites like this are well moderated….so this comment will be temporary.

    These Commies are reaching, re-evaluate yourself and leave folks alone.

    If you’re not ready to sputter away in obscurity and would like to ever make a difference for anything….you’d chill.

    On a path to rival Spencer for most hated, something’s are going to your head and will be the downfall.

    Fair warning you don’t deserve.

    Going to watch this article if you can call it that. This is slander and slander will get you sued and you’ll lose, just like every other time some leftist tries to slander anyone who disagrees with them with a label.

    This article won’t be up to long, or they’ll be edits of the lies.

    You do understand labeling everyone you don’t like a nazi or a racist doesn’t work anymore? You guys may want to actually engage in debate or you’ll lose the 2020 election too, but you don’t listen, ya’ll never do.

    • dkoester
      October 9, 2017 at 7:59 am

      Slander only applies if it’s not true. White nationalists (who in pictures from that night are throwing ‘white power’ hand signs) think they aren’t racists?

      • King Capital
        October 9, 2017 at 8:48 am

        Where can we see these pictures of them throwing white power hand signs? Or did you mean ironically throwing the “OK” symbol to trigger the dumbest people on earth?

      • dkoester
        October 9, 2017 at 10:01 am

        No one buys this *wink* wink* bullshit.
        One of it’s own members describes the first stage of their own initiation as having to declare yourself “announce yourself as a white, proud Western chauvinist, make sure everyone knows it, and don’t be ashamed.” (

        And yes, the hand-sign used exclusively by white supremacist groups to troll is a white supremacist symbol.

      • King Capital
        October 9, 2017 at 8:51 am

        If they explicitly describe themselves as inclusive of all races, NOT alt-right, NOT white supremacists, NOT white nationalists, how is it not slander to just make that up and run a headline? This is why people believe they are WN’s because of irresponsible twitter “journalism”. What a joke. Proud Boys may be fringe but they are not dangerous. They literally drink beer and raise money for charity in the Bay Area. I’ll add this to the list of leftist rags.

      • tiabgood
        October 9, 2017 at 9:17 am

        Please define pro-Western, and when you white Western Colonization is the white washing of other races, maybe you will understand that “inclusive of all races” only is if they conform to being like the white people in the group.

      • King Capital
        October 9, 2017 at 9:21 am

        I’m not white, but I’m sure as fuck happy I live in the west. Way to move the goalposts on the argument. They are not WNs and it is dishonest to say they are. Pro democracy, pro enlightenment, pro progressive values, pro capitalism, pro art, pro medicine, pro technology, that is what pro-Western is. WE ARE IN 2017 lol but keep talking about colonization. I’m non white and I behave however I want when I’ve been around Proud Boys. They have always been nice to me. What is “being like white people”? That sounds pretty racist to me

      • tiabgood
        October 9, 2017 at 4:50 pm

        Yes, yes it is racist. I recommend you read “Between the World and Me” it is an easily digestible book that discusses the “white dream” that is not quickly described in a sound bite in a the comments section. I am glad you are enjoying the Western Civilization which is also called European civilization, or Judeo-Greco-Christian civilization, which again, covers mostly white civilization and this country that was built on the backs of people of color. But just ignore that and should how much you want to be proud of that and how welcoming they are to you.

        But I can find other reasons not to welcome the Proud Boys:

        Their words: ‘“Western chauvinists who refuse to apologize for creating the modern world.”
        …they long for the days when “girls were girls and men were men.”’

        This is still an attitude that is not really welcomed with open arms in SF.

        The original James Baldwin is better than “Between the World and Me,” IMO.

      • tiabgood
        October 12, 2017 at 12:40 pm

        The thing is, if you do not already agree, it is easy to read the James Baldwin letter as “that was then” as opposed to this is still happening. I agree, I much prefer the James Baldwin letter, just not for this purpose.

        A middle finger doesn’t mean ‘fuck you’. It means ‘have a nice day.’

      ‘The left’ are the ones standing up for your health care, against fraud likes Wells Fargo, and general civil rights. Perhaps one day you or your family will suffer and realize its the people who stand up for others, or the ‘leftists’ that will stand up for you.

    God damn I’m glad I left SF. Nowhere else do you get that special blend of pretentious but ignorant, holier-than-thou but degenerate, piss smelling, gauge wearing scumbags like you do in SF. What a shit city. On top of that now you have security who are pussies, ANTIFA who are pussies, cops not doing their job, crackheads on the street, and a group of peaceful customers labeled nazis and being targeted for attack on twitter. You guys are in a bubble so you don’t understand how laughable this is to the rest of the country. Heck even a couple hours from SF you start reaching sanity again, and we are laughing at you. This is a flash in the pan, you’d just better hope everyone else forgets how fucking insufferable you are in six months, when your politics are no longer in fashion, trendy. If you have no idea wtf you are talking about, why not shut up, retard?

    It used to be horrible to be called a “Nazi”. Now that half the population are “Nazis”, it’s not so bad anymore. You dipshits should save the rhetoric for actual Nazis.

      That’s the problem with most liberal insults these days. Everyone who disagrees is racist, sexist, jingoistic, or a Nazi. This sort of verbal abuse detracts from the actual culprits.

      Keep it up libs. It’s a joy watching your self-hatred and depravity eat your movement like a cancer. The world finally sees you for what you are: ACTUAL fascists.

    Why would fleet week bring white supremacists? The Navy has the lowest percentage of whites, at 66%, and all service members take an oath to defend the nation which is by definition anti-nazi. I’m also pretty sure openly being part of a white supremacist group while in uniform would get you dishonorably discharged too. These “proud boys” would never have the guts, or lack of privilege, to join the armed forces. They’re all weak frat boys or basement dwelling losers.

    Ok so let me get this straight. This group entered the bar and then what happened?

    Were there fights? Did something happen? Or is this a case of too many like minded white men together that struck fear into the hearts of liberals at the bar so much that their mere presence caused the disturbance?

    Are groups of whites not allowed to drink beer together in California?
