On Monday, Aug. 19, 2019, the two members of the far-right Proud Boys group were found guilty of charges, including attempted gang assault, for their roles in a violent clash with left-wing protesters following a speech at the Metropolitan Republican Club in New York

    NEW YORK (AP) — Two members of the far-right Proud Boys were found guilty of charges including attempted gang assault for their part in a melee that followed a speech at New York’s Metropolitan Republican Club.

    A jury convicted Maxwell Hare and John Kinsman on Monday in connection with the October 2018 brawl between members of the all-male Proud Boys and the loosely organized anti-fascist group known as Antifa after a speech by Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes. The fight started when a masked protester threw a bottle.

    Lawyers for Hare and Kinsman said the men acted in self-defense, but prosecutors said they and other Proud Boys members started the physical fight.

    Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. said the defendants beat four people “in a brutal act of political violence.”
