Rumor vs Reality

Published February 15, 2021

Some Boogaloo Bois are white supremacists, some are libertarians. But they all want to start another civil war. While some marched with protestors against police brutality this year, others have used the protests as an excuse to spark violence. A man who claims to be part of the movement has been charged with murdering a policeman, and wounding several others. At least 7 others have been charged with weapons offenses and conspiracy to commit terrorist acts. The largely disorganized movement has been around for a decade, but almost 2/3 of the 125+ Facebook groups related to Boogaloo causes were created between February and April 2020.
