Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

A California police officer associated with the far-right extremist group Proud Boys has been fired, officials announced Friday. Rick Fitzgerald, then an officer with the Fresno Police Department, allegedly participated in a Proud Boys counter-demonstration on March 14 outside a theater being sold to a church that protesters said was hostile to the LGBTQ community and marriage equality. Fitzgerald was placed on leave the following day, and his firing was made public Friday by Fresno Mayor Jerry Dyer and police Chief Paco Balderrama, following an investigation. "It is clear to me there were egregious violations of department policy," Dyer said in a statement. "I am pleased that Officer Fitzgerald will no longer be serving as a police officer with the City of Fresno."

It's a start.
Long way to go, though.

Listening to him it's like so many wacko right-wing nut jobs:

"We're gentlemen combatants, until it's time not to be and then we throw down and do what we gotta do."
"We're going to be facing some dark times with Biden and Kamalalala (sic) up there"
"They're coming for your guns."
"NATO's going to come get your guns."
"Biden's going to declare patriots domestic terrorists!"
"Blacks kill blacks, not us"
"Sure, there are bad cops, but there were what, 12 incidents? And out of those 12, 9 of them the blacks were fighting with cops! The Press focuses only on those and makes all of us look bad!"
"We're behind because of what happened in Georgia."
"Our freedoms are going to continue to be stripped."

yada yada yada.

Here he is in his "Proud Boy" colors - which ironically I just realized incorporate two of BLM's main colors. Yellow and Black.

I see he's replaced the typical Proud Boy's black and yellow polo shirt with a Kilt, maybe because: "Fred Perry (manufacturer of the black/yellow polo popular with the Proud Boys) has taken a more straightforward approach to dealing with the problem, by halting the sale of yellow and black shirts in the United States and Canada" or maybe because he views it as his heritage?
