Fraternal Order of Alt-Knights (FOAK)

Proud Boys is a far-right men’s organization founded in 2016 by Vice Media co-founder and former commentator Gavin McInnes. McInnes describes the organization as a “pro-Western fraternal organization” for men who “refuse to apologize for creating the modern world.” The group has been referred to as alt-right or alt-lite.

The group takes its name from the showtune “Proud of Your Boy,” a song introduced in the 2011 stage-show version of Disney’s Aladdin.

In 2017, Kyle Chapman, also known as “Based Stickman,” formed a new wing of the Proud Boys called the “Fraternal Order of the Alt-Knights” (FOAK).
