There was nothing ordinary about Monday in Oakland, where anger and sadness, unity and violence converged. It was the senseless death of a young black woman. It was a community feeling threatened. It was different renditions of the same tired story the city is forced to tell, over and over
The Proud Boys, everybody’s favorite Alt-Right frat boys, have planned a meet-up in Uptown Oakland tonight. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center the Proud Boys are anti-muslim misogynists, and that “rank-and-file Proud Boys and leaders regularly spout white nationalist memes and maintain affiliations with known extremists.” Don’t they just sound lovely?
