A high-ranking member of the FBI in Oregon said that the agency does not designate the far-right Proud Boys as an extremist group, contradicting a report from a law enforcement official in Washington state last month.

Special Agent in Charge Renn Cannon said this week that there was a misinterpretation during a slide-show presentation hosted for officials at the Clark County Sheriff’s Office in Vancouver, Wash., according to the Oregonian.


The Clark County Sheriff’s Office later released a report saying the Proud Boys is classified as an extremist group.

The Hill has reached out to the FBI for comment.

The FBI tries to characterize potential threats from members of the Proud Boys but does not designate groups, Cannon explained.

“We do not intend and did not intend to designate the group as extremist,” he said of the presentation, according to the Oregonian


Gavin McInnes, the founder of Proud Boys, disassociated from the group last month.

McInnes, who also co-founded Vice Media years ago, has repeatedly denied that the Proud Boys are a white nationalist or "alt-right" organization. He was denied a visa to Australia after failing a character test.

The left has already done a good job of tarnishing their reputation. I logged onto the BlazeTV app this morning and see that they just fired Gavin McInnes and have completely scrubbed all trace of him off the platform. I’m genuinely disappointed.

It looks like someone “corrected” their designation huh?

It will let them focus on the REAL dangerous people such as, I don’t know, the march for women or the “science is real” march.

*sigh*

And yet, the Proud Boys very blatantly are a violent white supremacist extremist group.

BlazBBQ is one of them though. He beats his meat with the other Boyz while yelling out cereal names and swearing off sex. Needless to say, the last was incredibly easy for him.
