The Complicated Truth About the Boogaloo Movement

These Hawaiian shirt-wearing, gun-toting Gen Z activists say they stand with Black Lives Matter, against gun control, and are preparing for total state collapse.

|

Is America headed for a civil war?

According to the followers of one fast-growing online subculture, increasing political polarization and instability will inevitably lead to a domestic armed conflict, which they refer to as Civil War 2: Electric Boogaloo.

That's a play on the title of a 1984 breakdancing film, from which the movement—known as "the Boogaloo," "Big Igloo" or, sometimes, "Big Luau"—also derived its name.

The Hawaiian shirt-wearing, gun-toting activists known as Boogbois have migrated out of memespace and into the streets, showing up at Black Lives Matter demonstrations in many American cities—often in apparent sympathy with the cause.

The media have called them white nationalists and accelerationist terrorists. "The boogaloo movement is (for the most part) a libertarian group," according to one member.

But these labels don't capture what this dispersed movement is all about.

The Boogaloo movement is Gen Z Second Amendment activism. Its members forgo the patriotic symbolism of traditional militia movements for flowered apparel, bright patches, and colorful memes. Their approach to organizing resembles Hong Kong's decentralized, privacy-conscious, and social media-heavy protest movement.

They are digitally native activists, raised on Instagram and TikTok, who understand that in the world of online feedback loops, actions are often less important than the way they're presented.

Their online rhetoric is infused with paranoia, and its members circulate unfounded theories of rampant, unchecked pedophilia, which they say must be stamped out extrajudicially, if necessary. They claim that societal breakdown is inevitable, but their public stances often makes it seem as if a violent Civil War is something they'd like to see happen. And the movement's organic, leaderless structure leaves it highly susceptible to being co-opted by its worst, most dangerous actors.

The members who spoke to Reason stand against gun control, the drug war, and aggressive policing. They are also convinced that there's rampant pedophilia in American society that must be dealt with, extrajudicially if need be.

Sometimes they've aligned themselves with right-wing militia groups, at other moments, with Black Lives Matter. The one issue that seems to unify them is a conviction that armed resistance to government overreach is entirely justified.

"It's a very powerful movement that has come together and unified against racism, tyranny, pedophilia, and government overreach," says Mike Dunn, a visible face in a mostly faceless movement. "It's one of the biggest unified movements there has been among gun owners and freedom-loving Americans."

On October 8, police arrested Dunn for allegedly trespassing while openly carrying a firearm at a rally for Libertarian Party Presidential Candidate Jo Jorgensen.

Dunn says he left home at age 16 and joined the Marine Corps a year later. When he returned to Virginia, he embarked on a new political project.

"I began building militias and connecting them all together under one under one [heading]," says Dunn. "And then my buddy, who I was connected with through some militia work…was Duncan Lemp."

In March, Montgomery County police shot to death 21-year-old Duncan Lemp after bursting into his Maryland home in the middle of the night with an arrest warrant.

"I believe they blatantly killed him in cold blood. And we're going to have justice," says Dunn. "After he was killed, it really pushed me to become part of the Boogaloo movement."

Lemp's death gave rise to theories that he was targeted for his involvement in militia movements. Police say they were seizing firearms he wasn't allowed to own because of a juvenile conviction. The Montgomery County Police Department has failed to produce the arrest warrant or bodycam footage of the shooting despite requests from Reason's C.J. Ciamerella.

The Lemp faction of the Boogaloo movement often use his name as a social media handle and regularly post about police brutality, though they've migrated to Telegram and other encrypted platforms after Facebook started shutting down their groups. In these anonymous channels, racist and anti-Semitic language becomes more frequently visible.

But while racist groups speak of the Boogaloo as an impending race war, this group portrays it as a sequel to the American Revolution.

Dunn says he was drawn to the movement by its hardline stance against racism, which set it apart from many other armed movements he'd joined.

"I had grown up country, flying the rebel flag, saying some pretty dumb stuff," says Dunn. "And that's something that attracted me to the Boogaloo movement, was how much they hated racism and how much they weren't willing to deal with it. And I began to change my viewpoint."

Boogaloo members have marched alongside Black Lives Matter protesters, although their presence hasn't always been welcomed. And they've clashed with racist groups. The Boogbois once led a chant of "White Supremacy Sucks," disrupting a speech at a pro-gun rally in Richmond.

"We're not white supremacists. We believe in liberty for all," says John, who asked that we identify him only by his first name and who runs a Boogaloo-themed Instagram page called Too_Savage_for_Statists. "And liberty for all means…regardless of race, gender, whether you're trans. It doesn't matter."

In addition to supporting Black Lives Matter, he was in Hong Kong in 2019 helping pro-democracy demonstrators. He says that there are parallels between the two protest movements.

"The biggest similarity that I've seen is…how the Chinese media describes the Hong Kong protesters is the exact same way the conservative media in the U.S. [describes] the BLM movement," says John. "I don't think conservatives in America would like to compare themselves to conservatives in China, but that's really how it is."

Journalist Robert Evans co-authored an investigation of the movement for the website Bellingcat. He says the first time he noticed the Boogbois appearing in-person at events was at the January 2020 gun rights rally in front of the Virginia State Capitol.

"I was worried that we would have seen more violence directly attributed to the movement than we have seen currently. And hopefully, things stay that way," says Evans.

No movement can tightly control its message, especially one as decentralized as the Boogbois, meaning anyone can easily carry out violence and acts of terrorism under their banner.

One man accused of killing a sheriff's deputy and federal agent in California had a boogaloo patch in his car, and he allegedly scrawled boogaloo phrases in blood on the hood of a vehicle. The Department of Justice has charged three men connected to the Boogaloo movement with planning to incite violence with Molotov cocktails at a Las Vegas Black Lives Matter rally. The FBI has even attempted to link Boogaloo members with Hamas in order to charge them under international antiterrorism laws.

And a federal law enforcement official told NBC News that some of the men involved in the plot to kidnap Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer have ties to the movement.

"I don't want to downplay the danger because you've got…thousands of armed people talking about wanting to contribute to a societal breakdown," says Evans.

And while many of the more outspoken Boogbois may espouse libertarian-sounding political ideals, Evans believes that what most unifies the broader Boogaloo movement is a shared belief in the need to prepare for impending state collapse by amassing weapons.

"It's less than ideology, more of an aesthetic," says Evans. "A worship of weapons and the products that surround warfare…It is a desire among people to enact the things they've seen in movies…It's more than anything, a way for people who have not seen war, but who fetishize aspects of conflict to dress up and carry out fantasies."

Dunn and John both deny that they are actively trying to accelerate domestic warfare but rather want to be prepared to resist a tyrannical government power grab.

"None of us want a war, we just see it as inevitable," says John.

And Dunn says that their posture is purely defensive.

"[Former U.S. Defense Secretary] 'Mad Dog' Mattis said…basically, 'If you want war, if you want to screw with me, please don't. But if you do screw with me, I will kill you all.' And I think that's the mentality of the movement," says Dunn.

But Evans thinks the fixation on collapse and violent conflict can become a self-fulfilling prophecy as the presence of more armed civilians on the streets increases the likelihood of an inciting incident.

"As someone who's reported from civil wars, you can't prepare yourself for this…If they had a real physical [sense] of what civil war means and what it would mean in this country, they wouldn't be buying AR-15s and ammunition. They would be dedicating their lives to stopping that from happening every single way that they could," says Evans.

But the Boogbois maintain that the Second Amendment remains relevant in contemporary politics.

"An armed people was meant to be a check [against] the state," says John. "[The framers of the U.S. Constitution] wanted the people to be able to outgun the state if they overstep their bounds."

The Boogbois is only one of several armed groups showing up at protests. There are also the pro-Trump Proud Boys, which drew media scrutiny after Trump's ambiguous statement about them in a presidential debate.

And there are black nationalist gun groups like the Not Fucking Around Coalition and various militia groups like the Oathkeepers and the III%ers.

In the event of the predicted conflict between warring political factions actually happening, it's not clear with which side Boogbois like John and Dunn would align. Neither support Donald Trump or Joe Biden, instead preferring Libertarian Jo Jorgensen, and, in the field, Boogbois have often walked a fine line, attempting to position themselves as an armed buffer between police and demonstrators, peacekeepers between leftist and rightist groups, as well as protectors of private property.

While it's difficult to estimate the exact size of the movement, the Institute for Research and Education on Human Rights has documented a Boogaloo presence at protests in at least a dozen states this year. Dunn says the Boogaloo movement is already a sizable force and only poised to grow.

"It's probably the largest actively armed movement in the United States to date," says Dunn, based on online metrics. "A Facebook group had a hundred thousand people in it…before everything started getting taken down. Now we have groups everywhere… every state."

Evans agrees.

"It is certainly the largest movement I have seen in my lifetime, in the United States, that is focused around armed citizens taking political action [focused on] those arms," says Evans.

And to fully understand the group's potential reach, Evans says it's important to recognize that apocalyptic narratives are deeply ingrained in the American psyche and not lose sight of the fact that, as principled as some of its members may sound, the Boogaloo meme at the center of the movement is still one of impending war.

"There's a direct line between the zombie apocalypse memes that were such a rage in the aughts and the Boogaloo," says Evan. "That's where a lot of the people who are into this started buying guns… What the Boogaloo has done is taken that impulse… and attached to it something much more realistic because we're not going to deal with zombies ever. We might have a civil war."

      4. If the United States does not allow the blue cities to secede, I think there will be a Civil War.
        And it’s not going to be a race war.
        It’s going to be Marxists versus people who revere freedom and follow the constitution.
        You can bet the very first thing the Democrats will do when they get power is to increase gun control.
        So these Boogaloo boys and anyone else who admires the second amendment is going to come out on the side of freedom no matter what color they are.

        1. Negative. There are no marxists, just employees of Soros’ open foundation.

          The boogaloo movement sounds like standard American militias that have been around since time immemorial.

          Their attempt at inciting civil war with the BLM failed miserably. They didn’t have charismatic leaders – none of these groups do. Until they can start astroturfing real cults, all of this is just a reminder that America is coming to an end if we don’t get rid of the entrenched corruption at the top.

    2. It takes money to buy guns. That guys are on the internetz saying they have amassed arsenals in order to impress other guys is not proof in the slightest that they have actually obtained said arms.

      I have to admit that I do not even know who ‘gen Z’ encompasses, but my guess is that these guys do not have a lot of disposable income. Young guys don’t spend a lot of money on things they have to hide in their closet, they spend on things that impress chicks.

      So, yes, sounds a lot like trolling.

      1. Yeah I am extremely skeptical. The oldest Gen Z is 23- the youngest is 8. Maybe these are Millennials, but I’m doubting its a bunch of 3rd graders.

        1. I wouldn’t be too sure. With the pandemic some areas are threatening to ban trick or treating… kids love their candy and can be vicious! They might just be more prepared than we think!

        2. Google is by and by paying $27485 to $29758 consistently for taking a shot at the web from home. I have joined this action 2 months back and I have earned $31547 in my first month the from this action. I can say my life is improved completely! Take a gander at it

  3. “The one issue that seems to unify them is a conviction that armed resistance to government overreach is entirely justified.”

    Actual libertarians. I’m glad Reason found a couple. Maybe half of one at the entire publication.

    1. Surely you agree that it’s equally legitimate for the government they’re shooting at to drone them to death in defense.

      1. The aggressor never has the right of self defense.

        1. That’s the tricky thing about the NAP. It was suggested that “overreach” was the initial aggression, and blowing government employee heads off is mere self-defense. Well what was the overreach? Taxes too high?

          1. No, it’s not tricky if you comprehend the idea of rights. When government employees come to violate your rights, you may defend yourself.

            1. When government employees come to violate your rights, you may defend yourself.

              So if taxes are too high, blowing heads off is legitimate defense?

              1. Gotta draw the line somewhere between here and 100%.

                1. Google paid for all online work from home from $ 16,000 to $ 32,000 a month.NRf The younger brother was out of work for three months and a month ago her check was $ 32475, working at home for 4 hours a day, and earning could be even bigger….

                  So I started…> Click here

              2. So if taxes are too high, blowing heads off is legitimate defense?

                No. If they come to take you to prison for not paying your taxes, then blowing heads off is a legitimate defense.

  4. “In the event of the predicted conflict between warring political factions actually happening, it’s not clear with which side Boogbois like John and Dunn would align.”

    I would be very reticent to accept as fact the existence of an loosely organized, nihilist paramilitary group that is comfortable aligning with anyone and everyone, on every point in the political spectrum, on any given occasion, while praying for a civil war.

    It does not make sense.

    1. It’s a troll.

      1. Certainly seems like it.

        1. I quit working at shoprite and now I make $65-85 per/h. How? I’m working online! My work didn’t exactly make me happy so I decided to take a chance on something new… after 4 years it was so hard to quit my day job but now I couldn’t be happier.

          Here’s what I do…>> Click here

    2. it does make sense if its an FBI black opps to stir up problems

      1. FBI black opps

        racist

        1. Black Ops Matters

        2. FBI black ops.

          That’s redundant.

      2. My god, a black

        [pause]

        ops field agent.

    3. Whoa, you mean another “right leaning” “White supremacist” group isn’t one? I’m stunned. What next, the Proud Boys are led by a black dude?

    4. While I’ll admit these “boogaloo boys” people are loony toons, but there is nothing wrong with backing the principles of freedom rather than “I’m white, you’re black, I’m gonna shoot you now” that these fucking old white men in militias that are currently stirring up shit at BLM protests. You may not like it, but whites aren’t the only race around these days. I thought libertarians were supposed to support freedom from government tyranny and not “i’mma shoot people different from me, you can never take my freedumb!”

      1. Sounds like you fell for the racism black op.

  5. Now do antifa, who last I checked are actively burning shit down unlike the boog boys or q.

    1. “Antifa does not exist.”

      A friend told me; he faithfully reads the NYT.

    2. But “The media have called [Boogaloo] white nationalists and accelerationist terrorists.

      See how this works?

      1. “In these anonymous channels, racist and anti-Semitic language becomes more frequently visible.”

        And we’ll just have to take this bitch’s word for it…

        1. Not visible language!!!! Thank God we have a bonafide journ-o-list to crawl into the anonymous corners of these groups and to shine a light on and put a stop to this visible language.

          1. Heroes all.

            1. Google paid for all online work from home from $ 16,000 to $ 32,000 a month.CMs The younger brother was out of work for three months and a month ago her check was $ 32475, working at home for 4 hours a day, and earning could be even bigger….

              So I started……………………. Click here

        2. 1: Denied a platform on Facebook, Boogaloo migrated to sites that wouldn’t shut them down.
          2: Some people on these sites post racist and anti-Semitic messages.
          Therefore: Boogaloo is racist and anti-Semitic.
          See how this works?

        3. Good lord… There’s a place in the internet where some people say and things??? Sounds like we need more heavy-handed regulation!

      2. They also call the proud boys white nationalist. Yet their leader is Latino who has said in interviews many of the chapters are majority minority.

    3. Antifa is just an idea. Like Marxism. Which coincidentally enough is the ideology of Reason Magazine, the Reason Foundation, and every other organization sponsored by Chuckie Koch.

      1. “White Supremacy” is just an idea, too, but it makes a convenient booger-man to scare people into accepting “antifascists” as being harmless.

        1. White supremacists are alive and well and faithfully being pussies about being afraid of black people and trying to get other whites to join their pussy movement all the time. I can point to you at least 2 groups right in my county. Mostly inbred pieces of shit building their arsenal to compensate for their tiny dicks in their trailer parks. A good tornado or two would be nice to wash out their horseshit for a while to get it out of my county.

          1. Isn’t it about time you took the one way trip into the woods old man?

          2. Not a surprise that yet another liberal thinks of a penis whenever he sees a gun.

      2. RWE thinks Charles Koch and Reason are Marxist. Alrighty then.

  6. one man pulled off the hawaiian shirt look. one.

    1. I dunno, Jimmy Buffet and both Magnum PIs managed it, I think.

      1. even if I agree with adding Buffett idkwtf “both” Magnum PIs is supposed to mean

        1. There was a remake of Magnum recently. Latino guy played Magnum. I think TC was a tranny midget & Rick ran an organic health food joint.

          1. yes I think I saw a commercial where someone called a chick Higgins … no, gracias.

    2. There’s only two kinds of guys who wear Hawaiian shirts: gay guys and big fat party animals.

      1. and Bart doesn’t look like a big fat party animal to me, lol.

      2. ” and big fat party animals”

        They aren’t fat, they’re fluffy.

      3. I guess that in your part of New Jersey, that might be right.

        There’s a whole rest of the world once you get outside of Secaucus.

  7. Why does Reason seem to have such a vested interest in downplaying pedophilia? I mean, one can certainly debate how rampant it may or not be among our “elites”, but you motherfuckers seem to all but claim it doesn’t exist at all.

    1. It is an… odd… fixation of theirs

      1. To say the least. I used to think it was just another one of ENB’s personal lunacies, but it clearly goes way beyond just that.

  8. Next, from Reason: “The ok symbol means white power!”

    1. Also, Pepe the Frog is racist.

  9. The way memes evolve is amazing. I wonder how many of these guys know why they are wearing Hawaiian shirts in the first place. I’m going to guess… not many… since they are wearing them skin-tight. Hides nothin’.

    This is a good article. I’d also love to see an analysis of the uber-leftist groups I’ve noticed on reddit. Those guys are not ambiguous when they say they are amassing weapons to start the war. Idiots.

    1. They have hit squads, on video, assassinating people

      1. Are you referring to the Boogs or the Marxists?

        At first, I thought it was bizarre how many people at riots and protests had their phones out, recording. Then I realized how pivotal it is. Observing the real-time identification of the Portland shooter unfold, by a huge online network of observers, based on all that video coming in, seemed like a pivotal moment. Ditto for the footage from Kenosha. Now the people in black have figured out that they need to suppress the cameras in order to do their dirty work. Ugly trend. “Freedom dies in Darkness” or something like that.

  10. “What the Boogaloo has done is taken that impulse… and attached to it something much more realistic because we’re not going to deal with zombies ever. ”

    Is somebody going to tell them? I’m gonna tell them…

    1. It’s not the preferred nomenclature.
      They go by “blmantifa” or “peaceful protesters”

      1. The chinaman is not the issue here dude.

  11. The one issue that seems to unify them is a conviction that armed resistance to government overreach is entirely justified.

    What about armed resistance to the tea shop owner?

  12. “In the event of the predicted conflict between warring political factions actually happening, it’s not clear with which side Boogbois like John and Dunn would align.”

    But one thing we know for sure, they’re white supremacists.

  13. What you movements members are ALL looking for is a Constitutional-Government! A Government restrained by a Supreme Law that ensures Individual Freedom and Justice…

    That got dismissed by Democrats who champions mob-rule. It’s in the party name (i.e. Democrats / Republican).

    This hatred, blood-shed and “revolutionaries” with Fascists wearing Anti-fascist flags, Racists claiming “racism”, Sexists claiming “sexism”, Communists/Socialists claiming “Individual Rights” and Anti-Government claiming “Justice” doesn’t cut it.

  14. We need a lot fewer people with guns in the streets, no matter what their political views are.

    1. So you’re suggesting more gun control laws will solve this problem? If you’ve got bad guys with guns in the streets, I’d suggest we need more people with guns in the streets, not fewer.

  15. REPORTER: “The right-wing bugaboos are responsible for all the violence at these otherwise peaceful protests!”

    EDITOR: “No, we’ve updated that, the NY Times permits us to acknowledge that left-wing anarchists were involved too.”

    REPORTER: “So we’re sticking with ‘mostly peaceful’?”

    EDITOR: “We’ve got this story about a lost puppy which I want you to cover.”

  18. Has Reason talked about the Boogahideen and their confrontation of Virginia’s governor and state legislators?

    Virginia passed a bill outlawing assault weapons. The Boogalooians had their ‘Molan Labe’ moment (aided by 90% of Virginia’s country Sheriffs who said they would not enforce the law) and the Virginia governor and legislature backed down and withdrew the bill.

  20. Boogaloo sounds like slang for anal sex.
    This group didn’t think about their name any more than the “Proud Boys”. Which sounds totally LGBT (not that there’s anything wrong with that.)

    1. “not that there’s anything wrong with that”
      — Well, not as a legal punishment but mother-nature seems to have an issue with it as far as mating goes.

      1. What a sad existence you must have only ever fucking for the sake of reproduction. All the children underfoot must get expensive. You can fuck for fun too you know. That’s what America and freedom is all about.

        1. Actually Tony; My enjoyment is mostly in being an important asset to others (a provider of society) instead of f*cking everything that comes along. But each to their own; and let natural rewards and consequences lie where they belong so long as you don’t try to STEAL the ‘rewards’ I’ve *earned* because the consequences of f*cking everyone and anything doesn’t satisfy your own needs.

          1. You could choose to go through life not calling people born different from you “unnatural” and still be a low-tax rightwing nutbag asshole.

            1. You’d probably have a point if ‘Gasman’ wasn’t cheer-leading the ‘unnatural entitlement’ to worn out apologies.

              “I’m unnatural; I deserve special sympathy.” — Ya know like forcing other’s to bake a cake for my wedding or defying the very concept of legal ‘marriage’ held in the view of creating offspring.

              1. So the reason you are behaving like a hysterical bigot is someone made fun of the boogaloo people?

                Also, are you aware that marriage is not, in fact, a strictly biological process?

                If you’re going to have strong opinions on something, you should be up to speed on what science says about it. You may have had an excuse in the 1980s not understanding the natural bases for homosexuality, as such research was actually suppressed by bigots in government. But they have managed to scrape together a few pennies since then and done actual research on the matter. Turns out chimps and a huge number of other animal species are sometimes homosexual, but not a one ever gets married.

                1. Perhaps you are the wrong sex? I mean, if you take “trans” bullshit seriously, it makes sense.

                2. Yes Tony; Mother-nature is a hysterical bigot (by your own terms) and I stated it as such… You lefties get more insane by the hour.

                  “marriage is not, in fact, a strictly biological” — Government law that revolves around the term ‘marriage’ is. Granite the government never should have (never had the power to) start putting stamps on relationships but they did; and now we have a whole cult of ‘rewrite’ ALL pertaining law by claiming its a right to change word definitions going on. Just like the whole cult of lefties cherry-picking words out of the Constitution and pretending they mean exactly opposite of what they mean.

                  It’s dishonest corruption – at every corner.

                  1. If your biggest problem in life is that sometimes the dictionary gets updated, I really don’t know what you’re bitching about.

                    Human behavior is incredibly complex. You’re not going to explain it with a holy book, and the act of trying makes you look stupid.

                    1. Complexity (i.e. confusion) is the number-one catalyst for corruption.

                    2. Also, dumb people attempting to express thoughts.

  22. Thanks. Interesting piece. However, Duncan Lemp was shot and killed by police standing outside his bedroom window. They did not come in and announce themselves first or shoot him from inside. They broke his window, threw in explosives, and shot him all from the same spot. He was not even accused of a violent crime or making threats.

    1. All true Matt 10.

      It is also true that a) Lemp did break the law, b) he did possess firearms, and c) he did take affirmative actions (e.g. booby-trapping doorways) to harm officers.

      He is no innocent martyr, but he should not have been killed, IMO.

      1. It was a non-violent offense, unconnected to guns or even drugs, committed as a juvenile. He righted that wrong. We were not informed of the unconstitutional prohibition against him owning firearms. Putting an alarm on your door is a defensive measure, and is not designed to hurt “officers”.

  23. If they claim to be libertarian, they cannot then condemn pedophilia.

    I mean, either you’re for liberty, or you’re not.

    Isn’t that what libertarianism is all about?

    [/sarc]

    1. Children will be the last people to achieve equal rights. But we’re nowhere near that yet. Maybe in 200 years.

    2. Except ‘pedophilia’ kind-of borders on the wall of claiming the freedom to take what isn’t yours in the concept that parents have any entitlement to their children.

      Although I will add that puberty strikes around 10-years old and self-awareness/reasoning anywhere from 5 to 10. In the quest of the state to ensure everyone is a functional ‘adult’ at 18 makes a person really question if the state isn’t crippling a persons very own quest for adulthood. Which probably lies in something someone else here has stated; state control ensures everyone be as the least among-st us. (i.e. least common denominator)

  25. 31 people were killed on election day in Pakistan 2018 due to bombings and gun fights.

    39 people were killed on election day in Nigeria 2019 due to grenade attacks and gun play.

    0 people were killed on election day in New Zealand 2020.

    1. How many deaths in the US on election day?

      1. We’ll see in a couple of weeks. It seems that election violence in the US is anticipated, which is a new thing in my experience. For the record, I’m still saying the calmest and most peaceful outcome is a decisive victory for Biden on election night, followed by a big rally on Wall Street the next day.

        1. And who will you kill if Trump gets re-elected?

          The answer of course is nobody. You’ll do the exact same thing that Welchie Boy does every day: send enraged spittle flying in every which direction, while openly fantasizing on Twitter about who you would LIKE to kill.

          1. “And who will you kill if Trump gets re-elected?”

            He’s not going to be re-elected. You should focus your concerns on the reality ahead. Fantasy is not your friend.

              1. Trump is finished. Time to find a new celebrity politician to follow.

                1. I nominate Ted Nugent.

                  1. He’s older than Trump. What’s wrong with Eric, Tiffany or Don Jr?

                    1. Dave Chappelle, then?

                2. There will be an audible gnashing of teeth when Biden delivers an unambiguously decisive win in a few weeks. The anger and resentment of the BuggeryBoyz and the QAnonsense coalition. As they stew and fret, trying to figure out why nothing happened some idiots will shoot themselves accidentally. Those accidents will be almost all the violence we’ll see. If they do figure out how to band together and they do get out of line, it is going to be tedious and messy as the North is forced to trudge back down and spank those idiot Southern kids again. Maybe it’s a generational thing. It’s certainly bad parenting.

  26. I quit working at shoprite and now I make $65-85 per/h. How? I’m working online! My work didn’t exactly make me happy so I decided to take a chance on something new… after 4 years it was so hard to quit my day job but now I couldn’t be happier.

    Here’s what i do…Click here.

  27. It seems like the city dwellers have almost an infinite tolerance of Antifa/BLM so sure why not Boogaloo as long as they stay in their little play zone I can’t see a difference.

    BUT just as when Antifa/BLM have made there very few ventures out to the country, redneck land they have found out that these folks do not accept their “mostly peaceful” crap. They have zero patience and bounce these folks.

    1. It’s two low-level street gangs. They need to both be rounded up. Society at large gets to decide what is acceptable and the idiocy on both fringes need to be brought to heel.

  28. I always suspected that Don Ho was a cleverly disguised white supremacist.

  29. I am making $165 an hour working from home. i was greatly surprised at the same time as my neighbour advised me she changed into averaging $ninety five however I see the way it works now. I experience masses freedom now that i’m my non-public boss. that is….. Read More  

  30. “I began building militias and connecting them all together under one under one [heading],” says Dunn.
    Most large metro areas are smart enough to turn this problem over to their police department’s Gang Division. MS-13 seems scarier only because they’re brown. The BugalooBoyz may sound like a gay boy band, but they’re really just low-level street thugs.
