Barr specifically mentioned both Antifa and Boogaloo.
“What is an anti-government extremist? Antifa? Boogaloo? Black Lives Matter? Me? You? Any anarchist or libertarian or communist who has a blog, holds their head high, and doesn’t vote for a lesser evil? This term is left specifically vague because it’s designed to justify a war on all descent against the US Empire, left, right, whatever. We’ve seen this before. Nixon and J. Edgar Hoover called in Cointelpro, and it lead to kidnappings, torture, assassinations and false flag attacks. The Feds top targets were leftists like the Black Panther Party and the Students for a Democratic Society, but it targeted right wing militias and Old Right Conservatives as well. This is why bottom unity is so essential. All those who stand strong against American imperialism must stand strong together, or soon we wont stand at all.“ -Nicky Reid

Attorney General William Barr on Friday directed the Justice Department to form a task force dedicated to combating “anti-government extremists,” according to a memo obtained by The Washington Post, raising the stakes in the government’s response to nationwide protests.
Barr argued in the memo that anti-government agitators had infiltrated peaceful demonstrations against police brutality and systemic racism and “engaged in indefensible acts of violence designed to undermine public order.”
“Among other lawless conduct, these extremists have violently attacked police officers and other government officials, destroyed public and private property, and threatened innocent people,” Barr wrote. “Although these extremists profess a variety of ideologies, they are united in their opposition to the core constitutional values of a democratic society governed by law. … Some pretend to profess a message of freedom and progress, but they are in fact forces of anarchy, destruction and coercion.”
