So, all of the Boogaloo groups I follow on Reddit are gone, and some of the groups on Facebook are gone.

They're being labelled as hate groups and it's really starting to piss me off.

The "Boogaloo" is an ideology concerning our freedoms, our constitutional rights, and defending against tyrannical government.

I'm pretty sure that they are getting removed, because just by simply visiting one of the groups you can see that they are totally against racism.

This means that the media can continue to push the false notion that the Boogaloo is a white nationalist/supremacist movement. It's not.

People of many races, ethnicities, and backgrounds share the ideology.

Hell, there's members here who keep spouting off that it's a supremacist group and honestly it's stupid.

Even some of the people on the right who claim to be patriots and ready to "do what it takes" to protect themselves and their families, or those waiting for "the patriots" to rise up and put the left in their places are saying the people who share the ideology of the Boogaloo (the people who want to protect the constitution, our freedoms) are cowards or scum.

So what is it "patriots" of ATS. Are patriots only patriots if you're the ones with guns? Are patriots only the ones you consider to be patriots?

While you sit here and spout BS, argue, and foam at the mouth about liberals this and leftists that, what is it that upsets you that their are people who are actually willing to go and fight for what they believe in?

While you're sitting at your computer getting pissy and ranting about how they need to be stopped, there are people actually going out and trying to put a stop to things when the police aren't willing to show up. And they're the cowards?

Whatever.

There are people willing to put their lives on the line, risk going to prison, risk losing everything to protect their rights and your rights.

So, which is it? What are you doing to protect your rights and freedoms?

Arguing with the same twenty odd people on a forum day im and day out? Waiting for someone else to do the dirty work for you? Waiting for someone else to risk it all so you can continue living in relative comfort?

Psh whatever.

It's because People of Taste (POT) were offended by their Hawaiian shirts.

Delete your facebook, reddit, and Twitter accounts. Sign up for Parler, Gab and Voat. Facebook can sooner have a bunch of tattle tale old tranny loving grannies on them pointing fingers at eachother as to who is more racist and hateful.

Just stop playing their game you know?

I think it's possible this whole Boogaloo thing was inserted to sow distrust among patriot groups. From the little I had seen they looked more like armed Antifa groups like Redneck rebellion. As I said from what little I had seen of this.

Welcome to the new religion that has filled the void of Godlessness in western society.

The Woke Taliban makes the Christianity they hate seem pretty tolerant?

There are a ton of "Boog Bois" imbedded in the libertarian groups on Facebook. They are taking some of those down as well. Not much you can do since it's Facebook's playground. Everyone is just going to have to find a more accommodating playground I guess. Sucks, but the writing has been on the wall for years.

Well they can go find their designated safe space. Heavens forbid people come up with a way to have a laugh.

I feel sorry for anyone who think these guys are wearing Hawaiian shirts in a serious manner. These guys know it's a joke. It's a jooooooke. The whole Boogaloo is a joke. The Hawaiian shirts are a joke. The igloo... Is a joke.

And one thing if someone is going out and trying to blow # up or shoot cops or burn buildings down chances are they spook plants, media stooges, or just effin stupid.

I don't know how many times I have to say it. The main ideology of the Boogaloo and a potential second civil war is from a reactionary stance.

They aren't out to make a second civil war happen. Antifa, and the Anarcho-Socialists, and the DNC are doing a fine job of doing it themselves.

The Boogaloo is a right wing's response to the left wing's actions.

Hell, I even know some Democrats and somewhat leftist people who share the Boogaloo ideology, because they think the left as a whole has gone too far, and they too are preparing for taking action.

Reddit, Facebook, and Twitter can take down any and all references to the Boogaloo, and we're just going to come up with something else to have a joke. We might just start using lefty terminology to watch the left spaz out about having to think about banning their own words.

The point remains that with or without the words the ideology remains.

Yeah, I've been meaning to do that, but it was kinda further down on my list of priorities. I guess they just got bumped up.

Well, hello there!!

I have a very hard time taking any group that calls itself Bugaloo seriously...however much I may, or may not, agree with their thinking.

It's Facebooks playground. If they want an echo chamber, so be it. Their loss.

The boogaloo memes, or jokes, have been around for years. The media just got around to pinning crap on it to take away heat from Antifa and the rioters. The majority of the people who share the Boogaloo memes are veterans and active duty military.

And it's not just a white thing. There are people of all ethnicities and cultures that share in the ideology. That was the first indicator that I knew the media was using them as a boogie man. The media was quick to say it was a white nationalist/supremacist group that is diametrically opposed to their beloved Antifa.

But the thing is that any critical investigation will find that's not true at all, what-so-ever. Unless for some reason black people, Latinos, Asians, and Native Americans aren't "POCs" now.

I hope this helps:

Far-Right ‘Boogaloo Boys’ Are Trying to Incite Violence at Protests

Boogaloo movement

The boogaloo movement, adherents to which are often referred to as boogaloo boys or boogaloo bois, is a loosely organized American far-right extremist movement. Participants generally identify as a libertarian citizen-militia and say they are preparing for, or seek to incite, the "boogaloo", a second American Civil War. While use of the term has been found on the fringe imageboard website 4chan since 2012, it did not come to widespread attention until late 2019.

Adherents use the term (including variations, so as to avoid social media crackdowns) to refer to violent uprisings against the federal government or left-wing political opponents, often anticipated to follow government confiscation of firearms. The movement consists of pro-gun, anti-government groups. The specific ideology of each group varies, and views on some topics such as race differ widely. Some are white supremacist or neo-Nazi groups who believe that the impending unrest will be a race war; however other groups condemn racism and white supremacy. The boogaloo movement primarily organizes online (particularly on Facebook), and participants have appeared at in-person events including the 2020 United States anti-lockdown protests and the May 2020 George Floyd protests. They are often identified by their attire of Hawaiian shirts and military fatigues, and are heavily armed. In May and June 2020, Facebook acted to limit the movement's activities and visibility across its social media platforms.

I think the reason people don't like them is that some of them want to incite the civil war, while most people think we can still do it peacefully, and democratically. IDK, I understand their outlook. Maybe the system is too far gone. I put Boogaloo Bois in the same category as the John Brown Gun Club.

Hi there yourself!
i smile every time one of you pops up. Makes my day.

I think Facebook does want an echo chamber. It seems to be what most people want these days for some reason. They are either unable to tolerate differing opinions, or they don't want other people to hear those opinions and educate themselves. Either way, it isn't a good thing and certainly isn't something anyone with sense would advocate for.

That's the point man! They're serious, but it's military humor. It's facetious. It's managing conflict with humor.

You take away Hawaiian shirts they'll probably find something else ridiculous to wear.

what does the Boogaloo the group stand for? I mean I have only heard of this group recently and it was in not so good of a light. I had heard from the media that the Boogaloo group are racist,

But Thats the only thing I heard about the Proud Boys as well. But I am kind of seeing that as not true with the proud boys. Because when I hear Joey or somebody from Proud boys speak they dont really talk about race.

Full disclosure I heard this from this Antifa woman I used to date ( I know not my finest moment) Her words: "the proud boys are the worst, they are nothing but racist, they are white guy douchebags."

Even though this is happening on both sides, you've still gotta blame the left for it. It's a chicken or the egg thing. The left has been trying to censor and silence right-wing views for years now. So right-wingers have been reduced to only being able to discuss their views among each other. Everyone is getting used to only hearing their own views reinforced.
