Louie Flores’s violent attacks
As a member of the Proud Boys, Louie Flores has committed a series of violent assaults. At an anti-vax rally in Los Angeles on August 14, 2021, members of the Proud Boys attacked multiple journalists, counter-demonstrators, and anyone they deemed to be “antifa”.
The following are just some of the many other rallies where Louie Flores has been present at where violence was perpetuated by the Proud Boys.
#StopTheSteal – Los Angeles, CA – January 6, 2021
Louie Flores joined his fellow Proud Boys and members of the “Bakersfield 1776 Patriots” at the violent January 6th, 2021 “Stop The Steal” riot in downtown Los Angeles.
Egged on and protected by the Proud Boys, the right-wing mob carried out several brutal attacks on January 6th, including the violent near-lynching of Berlinda Nibo, a young black woman who lived in the neighborhood and was walking home from the store. An active hate crime investigation is still ongoing for this attack.
Louis Flores racist “stickering” all around Southern California
While driving the 3 a.m. to 4 p.m. delivery shift for Frito-Lay, Louie Flores travels around Southern California and places stickers with racist, anti-vax conspiracy, and pro-violence messages.
In late October 2021, Louie Flores (using Telegram user “Liberty above all else”) (@sicsempertyrannis76) joined a Telegram group for “stickering” enthusiasts.
Members of these Telegram groups often share pictures of the stickers (primarily right-wing propaganda) they have placed around various areas – and Louie Flores was very eager to share the Proud Boy, anti-vax conspiracy, Kyle Rittenhouse idolizing and racist anti-black stickers he had placed in areas ranging from a restaurant in Rancho Cucamonga to the parking lot of his workout spot, Crunch Fitness, in San Dimas.
It was through the comments he made in this Telegram chat that the identity of “Proud Boy Lou”/“Blako Lou” was confirmed. We have reason to believe that Louie Flores placed some of these racist stickers while he was on the clock driving for Frito Lay.
Louie Flores participates in other types of “activism” outside of his role as a member of the Proud Boys. When he’s not roaming the streets at rallies looking for counter-protesters to gang assault, he can be found working hard to spread vaccine disinformation.
