Quote:
A new iteration of the militia movement, boogaloo was born out of internet forums for gun enthusiasts that repurposed the 1984 movie Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo as a code for a second civil war, and then modified it into phrases like “big luau” to create an insular community for those in on the joke, with Hawaiian-style shirts functioning as an in-real-life identifier. Boogaloo gained currency as an internet meme over the summer of 2019, when it was adopted by white supremacists in the accelerationist tendency. In January, the movement made the leap from the internet to the streets when a group boogaloo-ers showed up at the Second Amendment rally in Richmond, Va.

Along and along a clash with cops is inevitable. They get ballsier every year and the courts have given them nothing but victories.

I doubt the cops will put up with that nonsense. The first time one of these boogaloo revolutionaries fires a shot at a protest, they will all be massacred. Police generally support Second Amendment Rights, right up until the guns are being pointed at them.

But join them in what?, is the question. Sure police like guns. Until the militia boys do something that gets them arrested, somebody shoots at a cop, and then all the cops return fire. If these guys are anti-government, does that mean they will fight government agents?

I think it's a confused mess right now because of Trump. The Secret Service for example might have some members with conservative philosophies, but if some militia starts shooting at them, they will wipe them out.

That's my impression from most of them. Boogalooers seem to generally be more "Revolutionary Cosplay" than actual militia members willing to actually go toe to toe with a state security force.

For one thing, the latter group tend to be much less prominent about who they are on social media.

Have you heard of the Cult of Personality?

Conservatives demonized FBI agents for their political views and comments regarding our most righteous supreme master of the universe, but they say nothing about all the right wing tools who work for the government. My guess is a large chunk of SS or FBI or local/regional Leo's are Trump supporters. Why would anyone think these folks would not simply cross the lines and join their brethren, the anarchists?

....respectfully, the anarchists and the pro-LE conservatives aren't really what you call "brothers".

I think the FBI has a very thin layer of Trump supporters at the top. Rank and file were extremely pissed when Comey got fired. A lot of agents actually went to law school. A lot of very smart people who can just keep their heads down until Trump is gone. Won't be long now.
