Power Grab


Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio [ ] faced rebellion in his ranks when Reuters revealed that he’d been an FBI informant after a 2013 arrest. “We do not recognize the assumed authority of any national Proud Boy leadership,” a number of chapters wrote on Telegram. Though Kyle Chapman [ ] was kicked out of the Proud Boys three years ago, he is believed to be jockeying for power. “There’s a lot of coalitions breaking apart,” says one extremism researcher. “That will lead the more populist members falling away and deradicali­zing. In some cases it will lead to more intense radicaliza­tion.”
