Celebrity Chef Fired Proud Boys Hat

Celebrity chef William Crandall, who heads Michael Mina’s Stripsteak in the Fontainebleau Miami Beach, has been smeared by Reuters and Miami Times journalist Zachary Fagenson for wearing a hat associated with the Proud Boys fraternal organization.

Fagenson obtained a photo from Crandall’s private Instagram, in which Crandall wore a camouflage Proud Boys hat while holding his infant son.

According to Fagenson, this serves as proof of the celebrity chef’s membership in the organization, which Fagenson falsely claims was considered an “extremist group with ties to white nationalists” by the FBI, and that Crandall must exhibit “chauvinist, racist, or bigoted” attitudes and behaviors. Fagenson also claims that the Proud Boys make immigrant families an “object of scorn”.

It was briefly reported last year that the FBI was investigating the Proud Boys, and this was quickly revealed to be a false rumor circulated entirely in media circles that had no basis in reality.

Within Fagenson’s article, Crandall explicitly denies having ties with the Proud Boys, and states that he is “not a hateful person, and I’ve never said a hateful thing about anybody in this business.” Crandall added, “I’m not and I would never support anything homophobic, Islamophobic, xenophobic, or anything that promotes hate.”

Big League Politics was contacted by Enrique Tarrio, the self described Afro-Cuban chairman of the Proud Boys, who informed us that he has never met Crandall and that the celebrity chef is not a member of the fraternal organization.

“I’m not worried one bit about our members, who are known for their tough skin and their ability to drain a bar of their supply of Budweiser,” wrote Tarrio. “I’m worried about a gentlemen I have never heard of, William Crandall.”

Tarrio is both the chairman of the Proud Boys and the president of the Vice City chapter of the Proud Boys, which based on geography, would have required Tarrio to personally approve Crandall’s Proud Boys membership.

“Welcome to the Miami New Times, where they want to smear a person for wearing a hat,” added Tarrio. “This is why we are suing the SPLC, for slander like this.”

Big League Politics contacted Fagenson for comment on this factually inaccurate story, and the journalist declined to speak to us and referred us to his editors, who have thus far not provided a comment.

Big League Politics also contacted Reuters for comment regarding whether they intend to take any action after one of their journalists flagrantly broke with the outfit’s Handbook of Journalism by relying on debunked information. We did not receive a response from Reuters.

Tarrio also told Big League Politics that while the organization has no relationship with Crandall, the Proud Boys stand for the celebrity chef’s right to wear what he wants, and may consider protesting the restaurant if it chooses to fire Crandall based on Fagenson’s reporting.

“If they fire [Crandall], I might be inclined to get our chapter and use our First Amendment right to protest this establishment,” wrote Tarrio, noting that they successfully did this “at The Cheesecake Factory when they discriminated [against] an African American for wearing his Make America Great Again hat.”

Tarrio claims his organization’s protest resulted in two Cheesecake Factory employees being fired.

The current status of Crandall’s employment with the restaurant is unknown.

Reuters Calls Louisville Riots Where Cops Were Shot by Black Lives Matter Terrorists ‘Mostly Peaceful’

Published

on

After cops were shot in Louisville during widespread Black Lives Matter rioting on Wednesday night, Reuters had the audacity to claim that the demonstrations were “mostly peaceful.”

In the Reuters article linked in the tweet, the shooting of the police officers was buried in the article. Instead, editors focused on the race of the cops who returned fire to Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend after he shot at them while they were carrying out a lawful warrant at his home.

“Two white policemen who fired into the apartment of Breonna Taylor, a Black medical worker, will not be prosecuted for her death because their use of force was justified, and a third was charged with endangering her neighbors, Kentucky’s attorney general said on Wednesday,” they wrote.

Reuters buried the lead, opting to demonize the “heavily armed police” who sent the “crowd scurrying for cover,” even though it was the Black Lives Matter/ANTIFA terrorists who shot the law enforcement officers.

Big League Politics reported on the decision by Kentucky officials to charge one of the three officers involved in the shooting death of Taylor:

On September 23, 2020, Jefferson County Judge Annie O’Connell announced that fired detective Brett Hankinson will be indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment for his actions on the night of Breonna Taylor’s death.

Hankison had previously admitted to shooting blindly. Some of those shots were fired into neighboring apartments not into Breonna Taylor’s where her boyfriend had opened fire onto police.

Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly, the other two officers involved in a serving a search warrant on the night that Taylor was killed, did not receive any charges.

The city of Louisville was placed under a state of emergency on September 22, when city officials shutdown a significant portion of the city perimeter to traffic. The majority of administrative building and other businesses were boarded up prior to the decision. Louisville has been rocked by riots related to Taylor’s death in March. These riots have been occurring for over 100 days and have resulted in a number of deaths and heated confrontations with law enforcement.

Starting on the night of September 23, there will be a 72-hour curfew in Louisville. The curfew will not apply to people partaking in essential travel, which includes work-related purposes or medical attention. Kentucky National Guard members will be deployed to the city for the purpose of maintaining public order…

Conservatives and nationalists should make it a point to promote healthy debate, while establishing a baseline of public security, to ensure that the country does not spiral further out of control in such times of instability.
