    Facebook Censorship of “Boogaloo” aka ‘Big Igloo' Groups On June 30, 2020, Facebook banned a widespread number of Facebook groups that have a loose affiliation with each other by using the term “boogaloo”. Boogaloo has become a shortcut associated with a projected civil war in the United States. Foxbusiness reports that Facebook used a heavy-handed approach, to include hundreds of groups, many with a simple association with the term “boogaloo”. From foxbusiness: Facebook said it its policy was a blunt instrument that included removing praise for the banned network and shared pictures, so that many who thought posts were funny...

    FrontPage Magazine’s tagline is correct: 'Inside every progressive is a totalitarian screaming to get out.' FrontPage Magazine’s tagline warns that “Inside every progressive is a totalitarian screaming to get out.” Progressive leftists showing their true totalitarian mindset have emerged and shown up in Portland and other major U.S. cities. Useful idiots among the liberal elites are enabling them. In true Orwellian style, the progressive leftists are poisoning language to exert mind control. Violence now means white silence and politically incorrect speech. You must say what the radical left tells you to say or you are committing unspeakable violence for which...

    Confronting a present-day war that most people don’t know we’re in. The Concord Battlefield is less than an hour’s drive from my home. I go there at least once a year, to reflect on our roots and the nobility of the American spirit. With the anti-American revolution in our streets, its symbolism is more important than ever. This is where America started, on April 19, 1775. In Ralph Waldo Emerson’s immortal words: “By the rude bridge that arched the flood, Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled, Here once the embattled farmers stood, And fired the shot heard round the world.” It...

    The next election is now about four months away, and some commentators are saying things are going to get nasty. Words that come to mind as I read this are devilish, ugly, anarchy, orchestrated chaos, insurrection, planned wickedness, incitement of trouble, weaponized Antifa terrorists, Black Lives Matter, and others. Liberal Democrats (Pelosi, Schumer), Planned Parenthood, gays, etc., are desperate to retake the White House and prevent the loss of another seat on the U.S. Supreme Court. Powerful globalists (Soros, Kissinger, Clinton, etc.) are passionate about world government, and they want to continue the surrender of America to meet the UN...

    Facebook on Tuesday banned hundreds of accounts, groups and pages that it said were linked to the Boogaloo movement, a loosely organized extremist collective whose members have occasionally shown up armed to racial justice and anti-quarantine protests around the country. The banned content includes a core set of 220 Facebook accounts, 95 accounts on Facebook-owned Instagram and dozens of pages and groups that Facebook, in a blog post, said posed a "credible threat" to public safety. Facebook said the accounts were "actively promoting violence against civilians, law enforcement, and government officials and institutions."

    Historic monuments and statues have become the targets of anger and vandalism during protestsPresident Trump announced Friday that he signed an executive order to protect American monuments, memorials and statues and threatened those who try to pull them down with “long prison time.” “I just had the privilege of signing a very strong Executive Order protecting American Monuments, Memorials, and Statues - and combatting recent Criminal Violence,” Trump tweeted. “Long prison terms for these lawless acts against our Great Country!” The new order enforces laws prohibiting the desecration of public monuments, the vandalism of government property, and recent acts of...

    An Air Force sergeant linked to an anti-government movement was charged with murder and attempted murder on Tuesday in the shooting death of a federal security officer outside a courthouse in Oakland, Calif., last month. The sergeant had expressed his allegiance to the so-called boogaloo movement by writing with his own blood on the hood of a white Toyota Camry and had used the recent protests against racial injustice as a cover to attack law enforcement, according to the F.B.I. Staff Sgt. Steven Carrillo, 32, is accused of firing an assault rifle from the open back door of a moving...

    Federal prosecutors in Las Vegas have charged three men alleged to be members of the far-right extremist "Boogaloo" movement with multiple state and federal violations of conspiracy to cause destruction during protests in Las Vegas, as well as possession of Molotov cocktails. Charging documents say Stephen T. Parshall, aka "Kiwi," 35; Andrew Lynam, 23; and William L. Loomis, 40, all of Las Vegas, were arrested Saturday on a state criminal complaint alleging conspiracy to commit an act of terrorism, material support for committing an act of terrorism and multiple explosives violations. The plot was foiled with help from an informant,...

    Three men with ties to the U.S. military and alleged to be members of an extreme white supremacist group face multiple terrorism conspiracy charges of planning to wreak havoc at protests in Las Vegas over George Floyd’s death. Federal prosecutors say the men belong to the far-right “Boogaloo” movement and not the American militant anti-fascist movement Antifa, which President Donald Trump continues to blame most for stoking violence around the country. *** Activists monitoring social media activity of extremist groups online amid the protests have identified the loosely organized right-wing movement called “Boogaloo,” which is a code word calling for...

    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...

    Police say the current riots are the most sophisticated and coordinated in years with supply lines, medics and communications. Police intelligence units have uncovered encrypted and walkie-talkie communications as well as social media postings that coordinate the delivery and hiding of weapons and projectiles and the direction of anarchists to specific locations at specific times. In essence, these professional rioters have created command-and-control apparatus as well as supply chains unseen in prior riots that followed the deaths of Rodney King (Los Angeles), Michael Brown (Ferguson, Mo.) and Freddie Grey (Baltimore One federal law enforcement official told Just the News, “The...

    Dear Friends and Patriots, We woke up this morning to a nation on fire. Not the whole nation, by far, but enough to fill our TV screens for hours on end. Our TV screens are showing us what a crisis looks like when it doesn’t go to waste. You and I know that’s what this is, don’t we? The protests began in Minneapolis over the death of George Floyd, and perhaps that was merited and rightfully expected. But in very short order, protest devolved into riot, with the commensurate general chaos, property destruction, and looting. What started out as a...

    Minnesota Democrat Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan accused “white supremacists” on Saturday of instigating and participating in the widespread riots and looting in her state over the police killing of state resident George Floyd. Flanagan indicated that gangs of white supremacists are taking advantage of the anarchy unfolding in the Twin Cities to sow more chaos. “People should be able to come together … and mourn and grieve and demand change and justice in policing and every other racist system that we have that has been part of this state,” Flanagan, the first Native American lieutenant governor in Minnesota, declared. “But in...

    They carry high-powered rifles and wear tactical gear, but their Hawaiian shirts and leis are what stand out in the crowds that have formed at state capital buildings to protest COVID-19 lockdown orders. The signature look for the “boogaloo” anti-government movement is designed to get attention. The group, which uses an ’80s movie sequel as a code word for a second civil war, is among the extremists using the armed protests against state-at-home orders as a platform. Like other movements that once largely inhabited corners of the internet, it has seized on the social unrest and economic calamity caused by...

    Bundy, who participated in the iconic 2014 stand against federal thugs at Bundy Ranch in Nevada, believes that it is time to push back once more now that Idaho Governor Brad Little has issued his stay-at-home order. “I will be there, and I will bring as many people as I can,” Bundy said to a group of supporters on March 26, one day following the order issued by the governor. “We will form a legal defense for you. We will perform an active political defense for you. And we will also, if necessary, provide a physical defense for you, so...
  • FAKE NEWS: Media declares 'boogaloo' a fringe term used by hate groups in dual attack on the First and Second Amendments

    Relying heavily on a report by the Network Contagion Research Institute (NCRI), NBC News published this article Thursday that defines ‘boogaloo’ as a fringe term used by an “anti-government movement that advocates for a violent uprising targeting liberal political opponents and law enforcement.” It breathlessly warns that the “new and discreet” term has moved from the “fringes of the internet into the mainstream” — they're scared, and you should be too. Forget if you can that the article (quite revealingly) equates “anti-government” to “pro-Second Amendment,” and let's just focus on what has to be the underlying message: words equal violence....

    On January 17, 2020, President Donald Trump pointed to the gun control situation in Virginia, noting that it proves once more the Democrats “will take your guns” if voted into office. He made this point amid the all-out war on guns by Gov. Ralph Northam (D) and the newly elected Democrat majority in the state legislature. Your 2nd Amendment is under very serious attack in the Great Commonwealth of Virginia. That’s what happens when you vote for Democrats, they will take your guns away. Republicans will win Virginia in 2020. Thank you Dems!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 17, 2020...

    It’s not often an old joke evolves into a catchphrase for mass violence, but that’s just what’s happened this past year when a variety of extremist and fringe movements and subcultures adopted the word “boogaloo” as shorthand for a future civil war. From militia groups to white supremacists, extremists on a range of online platforms talk about—and sometimes even anticipate—the “boogaloo.” The rise of “boogaloo,” and its casual acceptance of future mass violence, is disturbing. Among some extremists, it may even signify an increased willingness to engage in violence. “Boogaloo” has its roots in decades of jokes about an old...
