Armed capitol rallies "will continue" as planned, Boogaloo group member says

Source: CBS News


BY GRAHAM KATES

JANUARY 16, 2021 / 8:13 AM / CBS NEWS

A group that has been planning since November to have armed rallies in Washington, D.C., as well as state capitols, intends to carry out its events Sunday, despite an unprecedented effort to secure the Capitol.

In the days since supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol in a violent riot that left five dead, officials have installed a massive security apparatus around the complex, where President-elect Joe Biden will be sworn in on January 20. The FBI warned law enforcement this week about a group calling for its supporters to come to Washington, D.C., and state capitols armed at their "personal discretion."

That particular call for armed protesters dates back to a November 24 posting on a website called Tree of Liberty, an online forum for members of the extremist anti-government Boogaloo movement. The online flyer posted that day noted that the "Armed march on Capitol Hill and all state capitols" was planned for January 17 and was intended to be peaceful, but encouraged participants to "come armed at your personal discretion." In a follow-up posted four days after rioters breached the Capitol — including some who prosecutors now say were intent on harming the Vice-President and other elected officials — the group wrote that its protest was in "pending status given the events that have taken place." But in an email to CBS News Friday, an administrator for the website wrote that the group now intends to carry on as planned. CBS News had reached out to an email address listed on the Tree of Liberty website as being the group's press contact.

"The 1/17 events will continue, and safeguards are in place to assure that nothing violent happens concerning the Boogaloo Boys. I cannot speak on behalf of the Proud Boys or MAGA people, and we made it clear that we'd rather not see them there," the press contact, who did not identify themselves, said. The Proud Boys are another group of far right supporters of President Trump.

I'm afraid that we are past containment of these fascist extremists. I really hope I am wrong but we need to be concerned with defense at this point and then work on taking these monsters down and out.

A lot of good people have worked very hard to prevent something like this from happening but this is what the radical / Trump right wing wants. If they start it we will finish it.

The clever branding folks forget what the word boogaloo means to anyone fifty years and older. This is what plays in my head whenever I hear the word, and the chant goes up “back off boogaloo” in my brain.

You're hoping they start an armed conflict? You do realize that Guard personnel would be hurt or killed in this battle you're itching for, right? Is that okay as long as you get to chuckle over the bodies of dead Boogaloo Boys? You're hoping the Guard folks are put in the awful position of having to kill people? That's just vile.

Personally I hope the marches don't materialize, but if they do, I hope they're peaceful and that no one is injured. They have the right to express their views, as long as they do so peacefully and lawfully.

Don't spread that without proof. BLM doesn't want to kill police.


Far-right “Boogaloo boy” killed officer after using Black Lives Matter protest as cover: prosecutors

A California man charged with killing a federal officer and a sheriff's deputy has ties to the far-right "Boogaloo" movement, according to federal authorities.

Air Force Staff Sgt. Steven Carrillo, 32, was charged with killing federal service officer David Patrick Underwood, 53, near a Black Lives Matter protest at an Oakland courthouse on May 29, the Department of Justice announced on Tuesday.

Carrillo faces federal murder charges in Underwood's death, as well as an attempted murder charge after allegedly severely wounding a fellow federal officer at the courthouse. Both officers were members of Homeland Security's Federal Protective Service.

(Snip)

"Go to the riots and support our own cause. Show them the real targets. Use their anger to fuel our fire. Think outside the box. We have mobs of angry people to use to our advantage," he wrote in one message, according to the complaint.

BLM has very different goals. They were in Georgia helping Democrats win the Senate while the Bogaloo Bois want to overthrow the government.

BLM supports a variety of policies that are very different than what a far-right anti-government group wants.

I found a better source.

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/black-lives-matter-releases-policy-agenda-n620966

In any case the person arrested for killing a police officer makes clear what their real goals are.

Really?

This is a neo-Nazi group that is dedicated to overthrowing the republic - their mission is to foment civil war.

Let's read between the lines on that last paragraph, shall we? What does 'nothing violent concerning' mean?

I say activate the Guard and give them live bullets like they did in DC. We don't need domestic terrorists fomenting civil war.

23. Something may have changed in the PR sphere

After all the admissions and documentation about 1/6, fewer people will swallow the "Antifa did it" hokum. The Boogaloo Bois leaned on that one especially, trying, and failing, to blame Antifa for the Minneapolis Precinct 3 arson. So I am hopeful that without that shield, these groups are starting to see a level of accountability they haven't dealt with before and maybe that will restrain them a little. We'll see.

33. While Dangerous

I seriously doubt there are going to be very large groups showing up. Couple of hundred, maybe a thousand. Problem is if they are calling for simultaneous protests, they can't all show up in one place to make it seem that it's a large movement. Most of the protests that I've read about note there are a lot of out of state plates. Same people traveling around for a series of protests.

I'd love to see what these people do for a living or more importantly how they are funding themselves. All that gear, travel, web sites et cetera costs money. You'll do more damage revealing who's funding these folks or how they are funding themselves rather than who's showing up.

The army has already pre-emptively said it would not help Trump to overturn the election. I don't know what general would even listen to him, and he'd be overrule by others I believe, if one did try to enforce it.

So because of that, I'd like to see him try and order it. Because his popularity would be shredded even more. And a few more cultists would snap out of their stupor.
