Rubio Won’t Denounce Proud Boys in His Own Backyard

Will Marco Rubio denounce the Proud Boys? 

The answer will not surprise you

In the last two weeks, the New York Times has reported that several Proud Boys are currently serving on the Miami-Dade GOP Executive Committee. When asked about their participation, the chair of the Miami-Dade GOP confirmed their extremist status: “Yes, we have fringe elements.”

Last Thursday, more than 20 million Americans tuned in to the primetime coverage of the January 6th committee hearings, where they heard how extremist groups, including the Proud Boys, planned and executed an assault on the Capitol that left multiple police officers dead.

On Friday, WPLG-TV threw Florida U.S. Senator Marco Rubio a softball: Are you “OK with Proud Boys serving on the Miami-Dade GOP committee?”

Sadly, his answer will not surprise you: 

I won’t condemn “members of the Republican Party.”
