Looks like the boogaloo movement, who were the gun toters in subway in Raleigh, were in minnesota. I thought that blonde dude was a girl. Good thing some of them say they aren't racist, I needed clarification




The guy you meet at a righty protest is a fed 100% of the time. This is probably typical fed inciting folks that weren't inspired or organized enough to do anything on their own (see: every Al Qaeda inspired terrorist caught with a fake bomb in the last 19 years).

Regardless, the boog contains multitudes.

Here's another take on the Boogaloo (with some Boog memes sprinkled in).

The idea that societal breakdown/ civil war is inevitable is a pretty common thought in Boog circles. Hopefully this guy is wrong, but pandemic, protests and riots, and whatever election craziness will certainly happen seem to be a sufficient basis for something truly horrible to occur.

Some of them aren’t. Some of them are. What’s the one thing each individual has in common that reinforces their “Boojihideen” identity? Pretty much anarchy and exercising their 2nd amendment rights.

Here’s an example of how they differ, yet they belong to the same gun club.

The first 5 posts are from a kid I worked with and he tried to ride the worker’s comp train and failed because he couldn’t pass a drug test.

Then the 6th and 7th posts are from a veteran whose wife passed away a few years ago. Most of his posts on Facebook are of Trump support flavor with an occasional humble brag of how much land he owns which is away from society.

The last post I thought was particularly funny consider these two fellas identify as Boog people.

None of these ideas are his own, of course.

Never understood this delusion US veterans have that they were overseas invading other countries to protect American freedoms. World war 2, absolutely. Everything after? Not at all. That hasn’t ever made sense to me why they think like that.

Who decides on the branding of these things?

Nobody took a second to read “Boogaloo” aloud?

Somewhat depends on your general feelings about “Domino Theory” but it also depends on the veterans you talk to about this, you’ll sometimes get an earful about the military industrial complex. The lives of service people are often used to further the ambition of the powerful, no one knows that more intimately than a combat veteran sent to a foreign shore to fight for nebulous reasons.

Now that’s a great explanation thank you.

I think it may have partly been an effort to route around online censorship.

Of course by now, Boogaloo has been censored some places so Big Igloo, Big Luau (hence the Hawaiian shirts) and whatever else they are onto now.

Pretty sure I posted nearly the same article a couple of years ago, but since it's come again, if I read, you have to read it too.
