The Proud Boys, a nationalist movement of mostly young white males is drawing new recruits every day from coast-to-coast. They advocate for men’s rights, partying hard and for women to go back to being housewives. If the alt-right had a frat house, they’d pledge Proud Boys. But their leader, Gavin McInnes, argues they are not white supremacists and are only speaking up for a new class of minority – the disfranchised young white male. Left Field visits with a group of Proud Boys in Texas to learn more about what are they, what they want and hear what they have to say about America.
