Gun-Toting ‘Male Chauvinists’ Plan To Protest Councilwoman LaWana Mayfield in Uptown


A group of pro-gun, self-proclaimed ‘male chauvinists’ just announced plans to rally in Uptown Charlotte next month.

Last night they posted the following image on Facebook, telling their members to bring their guns to the corner of Trade and Tryon on May 12th to protest Charlotte City Councilwoman LaWana Mayfield (the image references her recent 9/11 conspiracy tweet);

According to their website, “The Proud Boys are a men’s organization founded in 2016 by Vice Media co-founder Gavin McInnes. McInnes has described the Proud Boys as a pro-Western fraternal organization for men who refuse to apologize for creating the modern world; aka Western Chauvinists.”

Their website also notes that they value ‘Anti-Political Correctness’, ‘Closed Borders’, ‘Venerating the Housewife’, and ‘Reinstating a Spirit of Western Chauvinism’.

The Charlotte chapter initially started on May 20th, 2017.

They’ve held a handful of official meetings since then, which often involve guns and alcohol;

UPDATE 4/29/2018 7:30am: 

The Proud Boys have removed the event from their Facebook page since we published this article. It is unclear at this point whether or not any protest will take place on May 12th.
