Re: the murder of George Floyd by the Minneapolis Police

It seems a knee jerk confirmation bias reaction though which doesn't help protesters cause even if there are issues worth protesting over.

Re: the murder of George Floyd by the Minneapolis Police

Seems like a strenuous attempt to classify the Boogaloo movement as "left-wing" violence, when by all available evidence it is mostly online groups and armed militias worshipping people like Timothy McWeigh and the majority of adherent groups could be readily classified as white supremacists or ultra-nationalists.

Sure, it's a mixed bag of internet weirdos and violent extremists so loosely organized that a lot of things can probably crop up, but to call it "anarcho-socialist" is just bizarre since the existence of such ideology within the movement seems almost non-existent. I suspect if you start spreading the word that "private property is theft" and "all people are born equal" on Boogaloo message boards or twitter feeds, you're probably not going to become an ideological center-piece.

And yes, these things do matter. The Boogaloo movement recruits heavily from white supremacists and armed militias, to go around classifying it based on outliers or falsehoods because it is politically expedient equals looking in the wrong place for threats. It's a tough enough movement to understand, being formed as much by modern communication technology as ideology, while simultaneously being very adept at "ghost skin" strategy or masking rhetoric. Putting blinders on will make it impossible.

Re: the murder of George Floyd by the Minneapolis Police

the lefty socialist movement has memes and so do the boogaloo and jihadi movements. therefore the anarcho-socialists will be violent just like the others. even though they have not engaged in any violence yet.
