Updates on Proud Boys Brandon Vaughan and Robert Jones, Meir Weinstein, Faith Goldy, and Doug Ford

We certainly weren't the first to report that Brandon Vaughan, a member of the Proud Boys, had been indicted for assaulting a Palestinian-American last spring in Washington D.C., but he was on our radar first for his participation in a number of Islamophobic protests, including one in Calgary organized by the Worldwide Coalition Against Islam:

Vaughan was one of three men (two of whom were Canadians) who are alleged to have assaulted Kamal Nayfeh, 55-year-old community college professor from North Carolina. Vaughan had been with the JDL outside the annual meeting the American Israel Public Affairs Committee conference when he, Yosef Steynovitz of Thornhill, ON and Rami Lubranicki of Howell, N.J. when the incident occurred. Vaughan had been indicted by a grand jury and when he failed to appear a bench warrant was issued for his arrest:
The charge of assault with significant bodily injured while armed carries a statutory maximum of 30 years in prison, and if convicted of the hate-crime enhancement, the penalty would increase to 1.5 times that amount, or 45 years.
Vaughan has been pretty quite since April. I wonder why?

On this blog ARC has noted Vaughan's fondness for Faith Goldy with whom he has taken more than a few "selfies" with:


As a supporter of the JDL, one has to wonder if Vaughan's support for Goldy will continue or, if like his fellow Proud Boy member Robert Jones, he'll reject the JDL since Meir Weinstein has finally noticed that Goldy has a penchant for Nazis:




Now Goldy recommended the book back in April so Meir is a little late to this, but better late than never I suppose. It should be noted that Goldy worked with Gavin McInnes, the founder of the Proud Boys who himself went on an antisemitic rant while employed by "Rebel Media"; Weinstein appears to have rationalized this though, as did the Proud Boys who attacked anyone who commented unfavorabley on their founder:


Speaking of Proud Boys, let's keep this thread going:



I also mentioned Robert Jones who despite having had supported the JDL in the past, broke off his relationship because the alpha male's widdle feeling were hurt. Well he's now now back to his old self and is busily advocating for the murder of police officers, magistrates, politicians, and the Queen because Tommy Robinson is an idiot and violated his court conditions and was arrested:







And I know this will come as a great shock to everyone, but guess who Jones supports in the upcoming Ontario provincial election:


By the way, it seems the ARC story regarding Doug Ford being photographed shaking hands with a Hamilton Proud Boy has gained some traction:


PressProgress has also been at the forefront of exposing Ford's and PC candidates -- some hand picked by Ford -- ties to far-right extremists. In their most recent story, they have connected a candidate, Donna Skelly, to extremists with links to Paul Fromm, James Sears of "Your Ward News", Kevin Johnston, and Faith Goldy:


The Ontario Progressive Conservatives could have chosen Christine Elliott or Caroline Mulroney. Instead the chose Doug Ford, a man with the apparent intellectual of a honey-baked ham who possessed all of his late brother's thugishness (multiplied by 2) and none of Rob Ford's charm.... such as it was. I mean, only Tanya Granic Allen was a worse pick, and only marginally so.
