Proud Boys – Donald Trump Supporters
Close to my office, the Neo-fascist Proud Boys marched through Rockville Centre today. It was really the most recent elections that did embolden them. In fact, I don’t remember this really happening before. Moreover, I will not be silent. As their hatred has no place here. Moreover, this is not the local county I don’t know.
The video showed the group of about two dozen people walking through the street with American flags and Proud Boys flags.
“The Neo-fascist Proud Boys marched through Rockville Centre today, close to my office,” Kaminsky tweeted. “I think the latest elections emboldened them-I don’t remember this happening before. I will not be silent. Their hatred has no place here-this is not the local county in Long Island I know. Who else will speak up?”
Also U.S. Representative Kathleen Rice did respond to the reports about the march recently as well.
“White nationalists did organize today. I’m very aware of the march through Rockville Centre,” Rice said. “Actually, am disgusted that this took place in our district. Therefore, I will continue to fight against racism, hatred, and white nationalism while they are serving as your representative.”
Francis X. Murray, the Rockville Centre Mayor, has issued the following statement:
“In fact, I’m aware of the march through Rockville Centre that white nationalists organized today,” he said. “I am really disgusted that this really took place in our district. Therefore, I will continue to fight against racism, hatred, and white nationalism while, in fact, serve as your representative.”
