The Proud Boys’ “rule book” was revealed at trial, sparking a flurry of jokes and ridicule

The far-right Proud Boys group faced a spate of jokes and mockery on Monday over the contents of a “rule book” that drew attention during the hate speech trial of five members.

Proud Boys Enrique Tarrio, Joe Biggs, Dominic Pezzola, Zachary Rhel and Ethan Nordeen are on trial on rarely used seditious conspiracy charges over their alleged involvement in the January 6, 2021 Capitol riots. Their own seditious conspiracy trial is taking place for several weeks , after the founder and another leader of a separate far-right group, the Oath Keepers, were convicted of seditious conspiracy for their role in the attack on the Capitol.

In addition, a jury in Washington DC on Monday convicted an additional four Oath Keepers of seditious conspiracy, marking another major victory for the Justice Department, which continues to work to bring the Jan. 6 participants to account, the Associated Press reported.

The ongoing trial of Tarrio and the other four Proud Boys began with opening statements last week and is expected to last at least several weeks. As the trial was set to proceed, Politico reporter Kyle Cheney said reported on Twitter Monday that Pezzola asked the judge to stop prosecutors from introducing a Proud Boys rule book seized from his home as evidence.

Cheney shared a full copy of the contents of the rulebook and provided an up-close look at some of the controversial group’s inner workings. The book describes obligatory toasts “to the guns” and “to the housewives” during group meetings and outlines parameters of how and how often members can masturbate.

“A proud boy must not ejaculate alone more than once every thirty days. This means he must abstain from pornography during this time, and if he must ejaculate, he must be within three feet of a woman with her consent. The woman must not be a prostitute,” the document says.

Pezzola’s attorney called the document “sarcastic,” aafter Cheney, but that didn’t stop the contents of the rule book from becoming the subject of ridicule on Twitter.

Daily Beast reporter Will Sommer described the rules as “wild” in one. tweet on Monday morning. Journalist Joshua Frank tweeted that it was “something else”.

“Some of the proud boy rules from her handbook are…interesting,” according to Mueller’s Twitter account, She Wrote sent Monday when sharing certain excerpts from the document.

Another Twitter user, @scarlettburlyq, tweeted that the rule book “is the craziest thing I’ve seen on Twitter in days, and that’s saying a lot!”
