Louie Huey is a second degree Proud Boy and the host of the livestream podcast Major League Liberty. When Louie isn’t drunkenly yelling about Antifa™ into his computer he’s organizing with Neo-Nazis like the (former) Traditionalist Workers Party and the Goyim Defense League. Louie bills itself as libertarian, but is largely a mouthpiece for Trump supporters. Case in point: Roger Stone was a recent guest. Louie is very active in the Denver area, covering rallies and events of interest to the “blue lives matter” crowd. Louie is also not above “hitting the streets” for some ridiculous “gotcha”-style journalism, and has become a well-known nuisance for Denver-area activists.

The most active and visible white supremacist group here in Colorado this year has been Identity Evropa. Their stickers and posters have appeared across the Front Range, in Colleges and Universities like UC-Boulder and UCCS here in Colorado Springs. They’ve done pop-up demonstrations, like the one last month at Civic Center Park in Denver.
So in the last 24 hours our Facebook page has been flooded by reactionary trolls. They have let us know in no uncertain terms their feelings towards immigrants, the LGBTQ+ community, and women. They are hateful, small-minded folks who think they are somehow hurting our feelings with their bullshit. Their nonsense is total projection. They insult us for being weak, effeminate, queers (which, yea, is true, we’re a bunch of LGBTQ+ people and most of us are sassy bottoms), and call us “keyboard warriors” but the fact is we have been kicking ass in Colorado for over two years now, and we’re not fucking going anywhere.
On August 4th, 2018, Joey Gibson held his latest Patriot Prayer event. Like most of his events it was a thinly-veiled excuse to terrorize the city of Portland. The rhetoric leading up to the event was full of references to “cleansing” the streets of Portland. Gibson and his ilk didn’t have to do much, because the Portland Police Bureau decided to violently unleash the wrath of the state on the Anti-Fascist protesters while shielding literal Nazis.
Lightner, and his goofy fucking cowboy hat, have become a regular part of the Colorado Springs Proudboys traveling shit show. His distinctive cowboy hat was caught on camera with Unite The Right participant and former generator-mechanic-turned-GI-Joe Shane Reeves, who was filmed conspiring to commit kidnapping.
While they were in town they made sure to pose for a photo op with the Portland Fascists
The Proud Boys in Colorado have an extensive history of organizing violent events and trying to crash events held by local activists. They have a particular boner for the Empowerment Solidarity Network, an activist group made up of people of color who have organized critical viewings of Childish Gambino’s “This is America” and workshops on toxic masculinity.
On December 2, 2017, Denver activist group Resist 5280 held a March Against White Supremacy. 2017 has been a banner year for hatecrimes, which isn’t surprising given the current political environment. One would think a march against white supremacy wouldn’t be that controversial of an event. One would be wrong.
The Denver event brought out a contingent of counter protesters. In the same way that being “anti-anti-fascist” just makes someone pro-fascist, protesting a march against white supremacy just makes them pro-white supremacy. Which isn’t surprising given the counter-protesters.
Martin Meyers is a 30 year old anti-Semitic Anarcho-Capitalist from Colorado Springs who manages the Facebook page Being Anarcho-Capitalist and is closely aligned with the Colorado Proud Boys. Martin Meyers is a child predator whose most recent ex-girlfriend was barely 17 when they met.
Denver’s “March Against Sharia” was hot as fuck. Next time we’re going with mesh bloc. The protest itself was about what we’ve come to expect from these freedom loving, small government-advocating, tough guy types: they spend about an hour shouting at leftists behind multiple lines of law enforcement, get bored, and then end their rally early, and go home escorted by phalanxes of cops. Their rally didn’t seem particularly substantive, which again is about what we expected.
