Proud Boys Leader Is “Prolific” Informant For Police, Law Enforcement

I have said this before, and I will say it again because it is a point worth repeating.

Almost all of the so-called “leaders” of these strange, racially-charged “nationalist” movement are directly tied to the government, which encourages said tensions in order to “root out” real potential threats. The government has been doing this for decades, and the evidence is obvious, but people refuse to believe and get caught in the same trap repeatedly.

With little surprise, Reuters reports that the “leader” of the Proud Boys is a “prolific” informant for police and law enforcement.

Enrique Tarrio, the leader of the Proud Boys extremist group, has a past as an informer for federal and local law enforcement, repeatedly working undercover for investigators after he was arrested in 2012, according to a former prosecutor and a transcript of a 2014 federal court proceeding obtained by Reuters.

In the Miami hearing, a federal prosecutor, a Federal Bureau of Investigation agent and Tarrio’s own lawyer described his undercover work and said he had helped authorities prosecute more than a dozen people in various cases involving drugs, gambling and human smuggling.

Tarrio, in an interview with Reuters Tuesday, denied working undercover or cooperating in cases against others. “I don’t know any of this,” he said, when asked about the transcript. “I don’t recall any of this.”

Law-enforcement officials and the court transcript contradict Tarrio’s denial. In a statement to Reuters, the former federal prosecutor in Tarrio’s case, Vanessa Singh Johannes, confirmed that “he cooperated with local and federal law enforcement, to aid in the prosecution of those running other, separate criminal enterprises, ranging from running marijuana grow houses in Miami to operating pharmaceutical fraud schemes.” (source) reported back in 2018 and continues to about Hal Turner, a man who is an admitted, in court before a judge as part of his official testimony, that his racially-charged statements and calls for violence back in 2008 against the state of Connecticut and her official were done with the direct oversight and permission of the FBI because he was an “agent provocateur” and had been for a long time.

It is not just Turner. So many of the so-called “Turncoats” in the non-movement that is the “white nationalist” movement in the US are just government agents leading honeypots. It is why I am hesitant to call such a “movement” because that implies organic sources, such as Germanic nationalism, which is an organic thing. The case in the US is a thing that is intentionally created and then killed by the government for the purpose of entrapping people, and while it does tend to stop real problems, it likely entraps more people who are just foolish or susceptible to manipulation by another.

To that, it bears repeating again, stay away from any so-called ‘white nationalist’ nonsense because it is most likely a honeypot. The same goes for ‘black nationalism’ (Maulana Karenga, for example, the creator of Kwanzaa and an infamous black nationalist, was a confirmed CIA agent) or other races. It is not only a moral error as the Church teaches, but in an American context, it is only a trap to try to get people in trouble so “law enforcement” can justify their increasingly repressive, invasive, abusive, privacy-destroying measures in the name of “security” and “freedom” while doing precisely the opposite.
