Beard Wearers who stormed US Capitol building condemned for bringing hirsute into disrepute

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has condemned beard wearers who stormed the Capitol building in Washington on 6th January for bringing the hirsute into disrepute.

The campaigners, who promote positive images of the hirsute, say that while beard wearers were a minority amongst those trying to disrupt a legislative session confirming Joe Biden as the next President, they were a significant minority.

Two alt-right to fascist groups in particular appear to have been involved. The crazed conspiracy theorist group QAnon is not particularly associated with beards.

However the all-male Proud Boys are frequently to be seen with beards. Founder Gavin McInnes who was born in Hitchin but resides in the US is a noted beard wearer.

The BLF says that the Proud Boys have worked hard to promote an image which links the alt-right and fascist to facial hair and have got as far as persuading Eric Trump to grow a beard. A key weakness however is that Donald Trump himself remains a hard-line pogonophobe

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, obviously the assault on US democracy on Wednesday was about a lot more than beards. However as a leading organisation of the hirsute we felt it right to speak out and condemn in particular the Proud Boys whose activities we have monitored for a while. They are no friends of the hirsute.

    Here is an important perspective on yesterday’s shocking scenes in Washington DC. There’s no question that if Abraham Lincoln were alive today he’d be turning in his grave.

    But seriously though, how come the Police presence was so thin that this rabble managed to get into the Capitol buuldings more-or-less unchallenged? Surely they knew what was going to happen?
