NYPD Release Footage of Proud Boys, Antifa Confrontation

Vandals damaged the Metropolitan Republican Club on Oct. 12 2018

Later on Monday afternoon, the NYPD's top uniformed officer, Chief of Department Terence Monahan, and its chief of detectives, Dermot Shea, held a news conference in which they explained in greater detail what had happened late last week, and what the department was trying to do about it now.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo is also speaking out about the incidents that took place, asking the Federal Bureau of Investigation to look into it as well as the state police Hate Crimes Unit.

The incident took place near the Metropolitan Republican Club following a speech by Proud Boys leader Gavin McInnes. Anti-fascist protesters had gathered outside the building, prompting police to escort some of those inside the club in the opposite direction following the event.

The fight had broken out on the corner of Third Avenue and East 84th Street at around 8:40 p.m., following a rally at the GOP's Manhattan clubhouse, which had been vandalized earlier that day.

Police say they are searching for 12 members of far-right and far-left groups in connection to several brawls after a private Republican club in Manhattan hosted a speaker from the far-right group Friday. The department released photos of men who were captured on video punching and kicking people lying on the sidewalk. The NYPD released new footage Monday showing the altercation from an alternate angle in hopes of identifying the participants.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said the NYPD is "fully investigating" the incident. No serious injuries were reported, however, and police said the victims refused medical attention.

Police arrested three protesters for theft and assault on Friday night but none of the Proud Boys.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, a nonprofit legal advocacy organization that monitors extremist activity, classifies the Proud Boys as a hate group due to its alleged use of anti-Muslim and white nationalist rhetoric. McInnes is also co-founder of Vice Media but left the company in 2008. The club advertised the event on its Facebook page saying, "Banned from Twitter-this Godfather of the Hipster Movement has taken on and exposed the Deep State Socialists and stood up for Western Values", according to the BuzzFeed News article.

The state Republican Party called Cuomo's comments "outrageous". "There is no tolerance for violence anywhere in New York City, and the NYPD will do everything in its power to ensure public safety."Police told The New York Times that the Metropolitan Republican Club had been vandalized with anarchist symbols hours ahead of McInnes" appearance there on Friday". Why did this club invite the Proud Boys, a hate group with a history of inciting violence?

The fight which was caught on video posted to YouTube seemed to pit supporters of the chauvinist males-only group against a smaller band of Antifa protestors.
