On December 5th 2020, multiple far right wing groups gathered in front of the U.S. Customs House and held a rally. One of these far right groups that attended this rally was the Proud Boys, Riptide Chapter. This chapter is known to have pockets of members spread throughout the Lowcountry who come together to create chaos within the streets. The Proud Boys have been designated by the Southern Poverty Law Center, the Anti-Defamation League and the FBI as an extremists hate group. This group is an all male organizations whos ideologies align Chauvinism, Neo-fascism, and White Nationalism. Over the past four years, the Proud Boys have been seen harassing, picketing and creating acts of political violence around the nation. Based on this information the Proud Boys are by definition a homeland terrorist organization.

The reason for this petition is to demand that the Proud Boys be denounced within the Tri-County area. We demand that all of the Mayors including Charleston, Mount Pleasant , North Charleston, Summerville, Moncks Corner and Goose Creek to denounce and condemn the Proud Boys and their followers. We demand that this happens as soon as possible in order to disband the newly formed Riptide Chapter. Groups like the Proud Boys Riptide Chapter should be condemned and resisted in every community. In the Tri-County especially, we should recognize the clear and present threat of white supremacist mobs and take the necessary step to ensure that everyone in each community feels safe.
