GONNA NEED MORE SHAKES:

Proud Boys and Allies to Rally in D.C. to Capitalize on 'Trumpstravaganza': 'We are expecting a lot of Trump supporters, and especially battle-ready Trump supporters,' All Out D.C. organizer Jesse Sparks said. (Will Sommer, 07.02.19, Daily Beast)

Members of the far-right Proud Boys men's group and their allies will rally in D.C. on July 6, just a week after violence at rival Portland rallies ratcheted up tensions between groups on both the right and left. The Proud Boys event and a rival counterprotest threaten to add even more tension for what's already shaping up to be a hot, strange week in Washington. 

The Proud Boys--self-described "Western chauvinists" who adhere to a dizzying array of rules, including restrictions on how much they can masturbate--will be joined by a number of right-wing internet personalities at the "Rally for Free Speech" at D.C.'s Freedom Plaza. 

The event's website lists a number of right-wing internet provocateurs, including conservative smear-pusher Jacob Wohl, anti-Muslim activist Laura Loomer, British far-right activist Milo Yiannopoulos, and former Pizzagate promoter Jack Posobiec.
