In an unexpected twist, members of the far-right militia group the Proud Boys have turned on Donald Trump, the man for whom they violently invaded the Capitol on January 6th, 2021.
With several of the cosplay patriots standing trial for seditious conspiracy, they’re now saying the quiet parts out loud.
“Alright, I’m gonna say it. FUCK TRUMP!” Proud Boy Ethan Nordean wrote. “Fuck him more than Biden.”
Read the thread below.
Nordean, also known as “Rufio Panman” on encrypted Telegram channels, isn’t too happy with how the MAGA king used his presidential pardon powers.
It’s been rumored that a pay-for-play scheme was in action that would have granted full pardons for those who ponied up a $250,000 quid pro quo fee – including rapper Lil Wayne – leaving the most die-hard Trumpers in the lurch.
“Fucking disgusting,” Nordean wrote. “I’m so pissed rn.”
“What a load of shit this whole thing has been. All Trump did was get us to reveal ourselves to the enemy. Basically butt naked and unarmed against this new regime,” he vented.
“Fuck Trump, fuck that cocksucker,” he added.
While Trump values loyalty, it’s a one-way street for the narcissistic one-term president.
Reality is sinking in for January 6th insurrectionists, and Nordean puts it on full display.
“I’ve followed this guy for 4 years and given everything and lost it all. Yes he woke us up, but he led us to believe some great justice was upon us…and it never happened, now I’ve got some of my good friends and myself facing jail time cuz we followed this guys lead and never questioned it.
Apparently, that was their first mistake.
Following the lead of a bloviating failed businessman isn’t the ticket to being great again.
“So glad he was able to pardon a bunch of degenerates as his last move and shit on us on the way out,” Nordean ranted.
In an ordinary and sane world, feeling some sort of pity for the insurrectionist would be warranted. But knowing now what we should have known then tilts the scale in the opposite of their whining favor.
“Fuck you, Trump, you left us on the battlefield bloody and alone.”
Grammar isn’t the Proud Boys’ jam – and neither are insurrections.
Trump’s call to “Stand back, and stand by” isn’t on the militia’s agenda these days.
Here’s a short thread on how top Proud Boy defendant Ethan (“Rufio Panman”) Nordean came to lash out in anguish to his fellow PBs on 1/20/21: “FUCK TRUMP! Fuck him more than Biden.” It’s from exhibits introduced on Thursday. …
