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

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.
