A pair of Boogaloo Bois planned to use the George Floyd protests in Oakland, CA as a cover to kill cops, have it blamed on "antifa," and get the race war of their dreams going. Per Washington Post:

Quote:
Now, federal authorities say the man, identified as Air Force Staff Sgt. Steven Carrillo, 32, was an adherent of the "boogaloo boys," a growing online extremist movement that has sought to use peaceful protests against police brutality to spread fringe views and ignite a race war. Federal investigators allege that's exactly what Carrillo was trying to do last month.

Federal prosecutors on Tuesday charged Carrillo with murder and attempted murder, and leveled aiding and abetting charges against Robert Alvin Justus Jr., who has admitted to serving as a getaway driver during the courthouse ambush, according to the FBI. Protective Security Officer David Patrick Underwood was killed and a second officer, whom officials have not named, was critically wounded in the ambush. Inside the three vehicles Carrillo used, police found a boogaloo patch, ammunition, firearms, bombmaking equipment and three messages scrawled in blood: " I became unreasonable," "Boog" and "Stop the duopoly."


Carrillo and Justus are not the only "boogaloo bois" currently in trouble with the law. In April, 36-year-old Boogaloo Boy Aaron Swenson livestreamed his search for a police officer to kill, but was arrested before that could happen.

While Trump and Barr blame antiFA for unrest at the racial injustice rallies, it turns out the opposite is true as it aways is when it comes to Trump.

"Boog" is shorthand for the Boogaloo, a libertarian anti-government movement that claims to be preparing for a civil war in the United States.

“Stop the duopoly,” referring to the dominance of the Republican and Democratic parties, is a slogan frequently pushed by third-party and libertarian candidates.

Do we know any Libertarians around here? They're obviously the enemy from within. coffee

At this point, we should probably just round them up and put them in one of Obama's many concentration camps.

What's gross and disgusting is the they present themselves to be normal, reasonable and patriotic citizens, when down deep inside they're actually sociopaths hell-bent on destruction. Hmm

"My way or die" kinda thing. coffee

The Boogaloo Bois are not operating in a vacuum. Their goals, methods, and personnel overlap with a number of far-right, anti-government groups that also pose a significant threat to law, order, and race relations, from the The Proud Boys, to the Oath Keepers, to the Three Percenters, to the Sovereign Citizens. Don’t forget the Klux Klux Klan either: The Virginia man arrested for driving his truck into a crowd of Black Lives Matter protesters is head of a Viginia KKK chapter.

Sovereign Citizens are my favorite: I love it when they interact with law enforcement and end up getting tazed. Then they go to court and get contempt jail time in addition to their original offense sentence. They piss off everybody: I wonder how the other inmates react to their constant whining about being sovereign.

Although they are all Republicans even Republicans don't claim them.

I won't say all republicans are racist but pretty much all racists are republicans. Most republicans who claim not to be racist are.

They're just so steeped in their white privilege they don't even know they are racist.

That all being said, there is an extreme right coalition of a libertarian bent who are dead set on destroying the duopoly.

It's here where the boogie boys hang out. The REAL right leaning independents.

Ever heard of the horseshoe curve? It's where the extreme right and extreme left come together in their desire to simply destroy the current government.

This is how I view racism and bigotry.

Righties always trot out that Dems started the KKK. This is true. What the Righties always leave out, because it doesn't fit their agenda, is that the KKK-loving Dems were conservative Dems. These conservative remained Dems until Richard Nixon enticed them over to the Republican party in the late '60s.

Now these folks are conservative Repubs as you point out Greger.

It's not really a Democrat or Republican thing that breeds racism or bigotry, but...it is absolutely 100% a conservative thing that breeds racism and bigotry.

This why it's the conservatives who whine about the Confederate history being erased - it's not the Libs who are doing the whining about the loss of Confederate statues. smile
