The Complicated Truth About the Boogaloo Movement

I don’t know enough about these boogaloo people to have a comprehensive assessment of them. What the guy Dore interviewed was saying was on the money, assuming he is stating his views honestly and is reasonably representative of his movement. The main criteria with which I evaluate all “radical” groups are these: Do they reject electoralism as the primary means of fighting the system? If not, then they haven’t really rejected the system. Do they reject the Red/Blue tribal civil war? If not, then they really haven’t rejected the system. Do they reject violence or sectarian feuding against other tribes who are out of power and against the system? If not, then they really haven’t rejected the system. If these three criteria are not met, then they are really not anti-system, or are merely more trouble than they’re worth.

These Hawaiian shirt-wearing, gun-toting Gen Z activists say they stand with Black Lives Matter, against gun control, and are preparing for total state collapse.
