Just a few weeks ago, the right-wing extremist Proud Boys were among Donald Trump’s most loyal supporters. But they got nothing with the pardons – they feel cheated.
- In the Storming the Capitol on January 6, members of the right-wing Proud Boys were present.
- They gave up Donald Trump loyal to you.
- But they did not receive pardons for this – and are angry now.
Washington, DC – After the Storming the Capitol came Nancy Pelosi the terrifying thought. The Democratic Speaker of the House of Representatives urgently wanted one second impeachment procedure – also to prevent Donald Trump from pardoning parts of a right-wing mob during the last few meters of his presidency. Precisely those people who had penetrated to the very heart of US democracy and now have to answer for it.
She shouldn’t have been afraid. It is true that Trump solved one in his final hours as president Wave of pardons out. However, on this surfed the rich, the corrupt and some of them Donald Trump benefited. But not the far-right part of the Trump base, which devastated the Capitol on January 6th. And that despite the fact that several rioters asked him for pardons. These will now have to face justice. For many of his followers: this would be a slap in the face. And for the right-wing extremist group Proud boys the former role model since the change of power in the White House is one thing: a “complete failure”.
Donald Trump triggered a wave of pardons – but right-wing mob when storming the Capitol is empty
Delivered one of the most impressive sights Jacob Chansley: Dressed in animal fur, with a spear in his hands and his bare chest full of tattoos, he appeared QAnon followers like a terrifying figure that Trump had brought to life. His lawyer called on Trump to “pardon those peaceful supporters who had answered the president’s call”. Another Capitol invader told the FBI: “We all deserve a pardon.” Now it is clear: Donald Trump did not hear her.

Among those who are now after the Storming the Capitol are members of the men’s group Proud boys. That the former US President Donald Trump did not stand up for them, now offends them. They had assured him of their “undying loyalty” in the fight for the office of US president. It’s over. Trump is “weak”, a “decoy” and “will go down as a total failure. “That’s supposed to New York Times according to the same name Telegram channel of the Proud Boys have been posted.
Proud Boys: Right-wing extremist men group angry at Trump – “total flop”
In other chat forums from Telegram and Gab, another platform popular with rights Donald Trump described as “exceptionally weak”, reports the paper. A remarkable U-turn. Because the paramilitary militia under their leader Enrique Tarrio has so far been loyal to the former US president. At an election campaign event, Trump even asked the “Proud Boys” to “stand by”. To the sheer horror of the public.
But the Handover to Joe Biden, the – belated – condemnation of the storming of the Capitol and probably also the end of Trump on the communication platform Twitter, through which he has communicated with his followers so far, has the gap between him and the Proud boys deepened. The fact that he did not even, as evidently the thought game of the right-wing group, pardon those who had to face justice, turned the ditch into a gaping abyss.
Even a greeting to the 46th US President Joe Biden was to read on the Proud Boys Telegram channel: “This government is at least honest about its intentions.” What Donald Trump called to his once loyal base in his farewell speech? “Have a good life!” And he was off in the direction of the sunshine state of Florida.(aka)
