Doin' the Boogaloo!

In case you are not aware of this, the mainstream media are beginning to screech about the word boogaloo used by some neo-Nazis and overly exuberant conservatives to refer to a forcible overthrow of the government.  It is so... jocular. 

Real civil war is not jocular.  Under the best imaginable circumstances, it will mean hundreds of thousands dead, and whoever wins, a generation or more of angry next-of-kin.  The postbellum political landscape of America produced widespread lynching and ferocious hatred.  The Spanish Civil War, the Mexican Revolution, and the Russian Revolution created a storm of atrocities that previously rational people would have not done.

The actual fight would mean vast numbers of otherwise decent federal LEOs and military would follow orders that based on what they will be told, sounded perfectly lawful and reasonable, and end up dead.

There are a number of factions in America who will use such a war to vent their racial hatred.  You do not want to find out too late that the guys who joined your fire team are KKK or Aryan Nations.  (I have never met members of either, but they do exist, and might well compromise your moral strength and the public perception of an otherwise righteous cause.)  Of course, Antifa will play the race card as well as a bunch of spoiled, overprivileged whites can.  Creating a perception of this as a race war, or a sexual orientation war, or a religious war, will destroy any attempts at unifying Americans who might agree with you, but are the "wrong" race, religion, or orientation.  Do not play the left's identitarian game! 

Making war on the U.S. government is treason, a capital crime.  The Bernie Bros and other progressives will forget their opposition to the death penalty if the prospect of working losers to death in American gulags becomes possible.  They have discussed liquidation of millions of capitalists who cannot be re-educated before.

Attempts to enforce their fantasy gun control measures will lead to thousands to hundreds of thousands of defensive battles.  They will look very bad for drawing first blood.  Don't play the communist game by their rules.

Above all, emphasize not overthrowing the federal government, but defense of individual rights from thugs who ignore the Constitution.  They are the real boogalooers.


  1. Treason is specifically defined in the Constitution: Article III, Section 3. Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.

  2. I think they can malign and tar anyone, even if he wasn't armed and didn't resist.

  3. Speaking as someone who has worked internal affairs in multiple agencies and instances, I have a question regarding "otherwise decent federal LEOs".

    Where are all of the decent federal whistle-blowers for the proved (see the I.G. report) felonious violation of civil rights perpetrated by way of the FISA court?

    Is that part of the "otherwise"?

    Clayton, please come up to speed. Most people vote with their paycheck, period, full stop. Stop believing in intrinsic goodness; it does not exist.

    First from a man: "In questions of power, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the constitution."

    Second, from The Man: "Stop regarding man whose breath is in his nostrils".

  4. First: FBI officials involved in these criminal acts are far removed from those who will be called on to enforce these laws.

    Second: the IG report shows that decent people still work at DOJ.
