"During Tuesday night’s debate, President Donald Trump was asked to condemn the Proud Boys, a roving gang of violent neo-fascists founded in September 2016 by Gavin McInnes. Trump demurred, and instead told them to “stand back and stand by.” Reasonably, the group and other far-right extremists heard Trump’s comments as a nod of approval, and they giddily took to social media to acknowledge the president’s message.
But it wasn’t the first time the violent far-right group had received support from more mainstream conservative sources — McInnes and other Proud Boys have been promoted by Fox News and other right-wing media outlets for years."
