Online History

On October 12th, 2018, a fight between far right group Proud Boys and Antifa took place near the Metropolitan Republican Club following a live event featuring the Proud Boys movement founder Gavin McInnes.[1][2] The fight broke out following a conflict between Paul "GypsyCrusader" Miller and a member of Antifa who allegedly knocked a phone out of Miller's hand while he was filming the Antifa protest.

Following the events of the night, after which two members of Proud Boys were sentenced to four years in prison, GypsyCrusader became a subject of doxing. Miller was then interviewed by news broadcast OAN in which he talked about his prospective about the incident (shown below).



In the year, GypsyCrusader became active on Instagram as gypsy_crusader88 (this and later accounts banned) and Telegram,[3] becoming an alt right activist. A number of incidents involving GypsyCrusader were reported online, including an incident of him calling for death of US representative Ilhan Omar on Instagram[4] in April 2019 and Miller wearing a Boogaloo mask and shouting "They don’t have a right to protest!" at a Black Lives Matter rally in May 2020.[5] Also in May 2020, FBI visited Miller's house after he called for an armed protest against the COVID-19 lockdown in New Jersey.[6]

On August 16th, 2020, GypsyCrusader launched a Twitch[7] account, later streaming on YouTube,[8] Dlive[9] and on Bitwave.tv[10][11] after his accounts became banned. During his streams, GypsyCrusader often wears a Joker costume and copies his mannerisms (version from the 2019 eponymous film), with the first documented instance of this being an August 21st, 2020, stream.

On October 6th, 2020, GypsyCrusader[12][13] posted an "origin story" in which he talked about the changes in his views and his radicalization that followed the October 2018 fight at the Metropolitan Republican Club and the events that followed, including Miller being doxed, losing his job, being banned at his gym and the FBI visiting his house.

Starting in October 2020, clips from GypsyCrusader streams started gaining spread on several online platforms, particularly on iFunny and Twitter. For example, on October 29th, iFunny[14] user Langley posted a clip of Miller's stream that gained over 1,800 smiles on the platform. On November 7th, Twitter[15] account @WeirdestMp4s posted the clip, with the video gaining over 85,700 views, 1,300 retweets and 9,600 likes (shown below).

In November 2020, multiple viral clips of GypsyCrusader were posted on iFunny[16][17] and Twitter.[18][19]

On November 26th, 2020, YouTuber sensitive soci3ty uploaded a video named "The Tragic Story Of Gypsy Crusader – The Real Life Joker" (shown below).



The video recieved over 300,000 views and 22,000 likes in 3 weeks.
