BK man charged in brawl after speech by far-right leader

BK man charged in brawl after speech by far-right leader”

Cuomo, a Democrat, on Sunday called the invitation to Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes to speak at the Metropolitan Republican Club a "political tactic" to "fire up" the Republican base ahead of the midterm elections. Police said there were no serious injuries in the fights and that they were reviewing footage to determine if other crimes were committed.

"We believe we have valid [reason for the] arrests for those nine individuals to include charges of riot and attempted assault", NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said at a press conference, adding that the raps could be upgraded.

The three men, Finbarr Slonim, 20, and Caleb Perkins, 35, both of the Upper East Side and Kai Russo, 20, of Brooklyn, were charged with robbery, harassment and assault.

In the wake of the melee, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo blamed Republicans and President Trump for the violence.

Shea said Monday that three more protesters were to be arrested for the brawl, too.

"The NYPD is fully investigating last night's attack involving the Proud Boys", de Blasio tweeted Saturday.

New York City Public Advocate Letitia James, a Democrat who is running for state attorney general, said, "I am disturbed and disgusted by the videos I've seen of members of the neo-fascist, white supremacist Proud Boys group engaging in hate-fueled mob violence on the streets of New York City".

During a trip to Israel in 2017, McInnes said that his visit was making him anti-Semitic, that Israelis have a "whiny paranoid fear of Nazis", and that Jews were ultimately responsible for World War II.

McInnes' lecture at the Metropolitan Republican Club was reportedly about Japanese right-wing extremist Otoya Yamaguchi, who assassinated Japan Socialist Party leader Inejiro Asanuma with a sword in 1960. A note left at the scene claimed that the damage was "just the beginning".
