Skip to comments.Gun-toting members of the Boogaloo movement are showing up at protests

Benjamin Ryan Teeter was at his home in Hampstead, N.C., when the call to action came. It was an alert from the heart of the raging protests in Minneapolis, posted on an online forum by a fellow member of the Boogaloo movement, a loosely knit group of heavily armed, anti-government extremists.
The "alert" was from a man who had a run-in with the Minneapolis police while on the frontline of the police-brutality protests set off by the death of George Floyd. "He caught mace to the face," said Teeter, and "put out a national notice to our network."
After Teeter -- who goes by Ryan -- said he saw the online posting, he and a handful of other Boogaloo friends in the area mobilized. They grabbed their guns -- mostly assault rifles -- hopped into their vehicles, and made the 18-hour trek to Minneapolis.
The Boogaloos are an emerging incarnation of extremism that seems to defy easy categorization. They are yet another confounding factor in the ongoing effort among local, state and federal officials to puzzle out the political sympathies of the agitators showing up to the mostly peaceful George Floyd rallies who have destroyed property, looted businesses, or -- in the case of the Boogaloos who descended on Minneapolis -- walked around the streets with assault rifles.
Boogaloo members appear to hold conflicting ideological views with some identifying as anarchists and others rejecting formal titles. Some pockets of the group have espoused white supremacy while others reject it. But they have at least two things in common: an affinity for toting around guns in public and a "boogaloo" rallying cry, which is commonly viewed as code for another US civil war.

Anyone who opposes the Democrat, media and rioting/stealing blacks is going to be vilified. This mess is just getting started.
Boogaloo has membership?
I have been led to believe that this Bogaloo movement or “The Bogaloo Boys” as they are called are the far-right counter group of ANTIFA. While Antifa is far-left and wants to destroy the country, the Bogaloos are far-right and want a second civil war. Both groups are idiots.
So he opposes police brutality against the protesters...
Doesn’t that make him at least pro BLM?
Freakin dumbest article ever!
Riots are fertile soil for all sorts of crazies, like bad mushrooms, to pop up overnight.
So, what rioting, looting and burning has this movement started?
What violence has this movement started?
The answer is NONE?
A spotlight draws attention away from everything else on stage. So of course CNN focuses its lens on this to distract.
You have been led to believe nonsense. Bugaloo “Boys” is just an insult created by Vice News aimed at gun owners.
He LOOKS like Antifa.
Antifa with a Karen haircut.
Sometimes it's fun being olde.
“Boogaloo” was all the unimaginative scriptwriter/”journalist” could come up with, when his CNN editors ordered him to come up with a right-wing “Boogeyman” to blame for all the damage that the Leftists committed.
aryan race much?
GREAT post. Thanks. Ready and capable here and in neighborhood. Sharp minds and sharp shooters. It’s like the Roach Motel. Roaches check in but they don’t check out. Lock arms, ammo, best practices, alternative plans. War-game the possibilities with like-minded. Snowflakes...well...they are on their own. Back off Boogaloo...
a. It’s not a “movement”.
b. Its not a far-right counter group, its not an organized group at all.
c. Overall, the “boogalooers” don’t want a civil war but is expecting one because of the actions of the left.
d. The Hawaiian shirt thing is a tongue-in-cheek dress code because of many permutations of the phrase “boogaloo”.
e. It is mostly just gun owners who want to protect their lives and property and are dressed in Hawaiian shirts, who understand the world is going to sh*t .
This is only the start, if you are a gun owner or a conservative or especially both expect to be villified and scapegoated as the cause for this mess. It is already happening.
17 intel agencies, PDs & SDs & Detectives downstream. Surveillance capability up the wazoo and drone capability on your woohoo, etc.,etc. MONEY WELL-SPENT, EH?
95-100% of these anarchist pawns (we have the ability to shut down their comms, seal them in their particular riot area) should be in jail or prison along with their kings & queens EVERY EVENT. INCARCERATE. ELIMINATE as needed. Life, liberty and WTF?
PART of the SOLUTION, OR PART of the PROBLEM?
Wake up citizens.
