The right-wing politics and hard-drinking bro culture of The Proud Boys is attracting young, white men from across the country. They share fratty hazing rituals and self-proclaimed “Western chauvinism.” And with slogans like “feminism is cancer,” and “venerate the housewife,” they’re fighting to make America great for men again. The Proud Boys’ founder Gavin McInnes believes “95% of American women” would be happier at home, making babies. Where does his vision of “being a man” fit in America in 2018? Reporter Alexandra Hall meets up with a Wisconsin Proud Boys chapter and has a revealing conversation with McInnes himself.
