The Boogaloo: Extremists’ New Slang Term for A Coming Civil War
ADL.Org ^ | 12-26-2019 | Anti-Defamation League

Posted on 12/18/2019 1:26:44 PM PST by tcrlaf

It’s not often an old joke evolves into a catchphrase for mass violence, but that’s just what’s happened this past year when a variety of extremist and fringe movements and subcultures adopted the word “boogaloo” as shorthand for a future civil war.

From militia groups to white supremacists, extremists on a range of online platforms talk about—and sometimes even anticipate—the “boogaloo.” The rise of “boogaloo,” and its casual acceptance of future mass violence, is disturbing. Among some extremists, it may even signify an increased willingness to engage in violence.

“Boogaloo” has its roots in decades of jokes about an old movie: the 1984 breakdancing film Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo. Almost from the moment of the movie’s release, people exploited the format of the movie’s title for humorous purposes, replacing “Breakin’” with some other film, event or person of their choice.

These jokes included “Civil War 2: Electric Boogaloo” references, made every so often by gamers and history buffs, among others. But its most recent, and most serious, iteration caught on and spread very quickly. Though some still use the phrase as a joke, an increasing number of people employ it with serious intent.

No one at all cares what some Leftist Hate group like the AdL or SPDL is freaking out about. What would be of note is one day they NOT going into hyper partisan bigoted hysterics about some imaginary threat.

It all depends on which extremist group has p.c. sanction and, coincidentally, is powerful, and which extremist group lacks p.c. and, just coincidentally, is powerless.

Antifa will have no power if local police depts. can get face-recognition, civil ultrasound, so that no matter who wears a mask, riot police will have facial scans.

The ADL and SPLC are akin to the poop and filth of the streets of SF, LA and Seattle.

The Whole School is rolling fake dice, you play stupid games you win stupid prizes.

Seriously, I'm Jewish and the ADL needs to grow the hell up.

Weird, I don’t see any reference to Antifa and other left-wing street violence that we’ve had to withstand in the recent past. What about that, ADL? Where’s this right wing bogeyman they keep talking about? All I see is masked socialist/anarchist militias running around with sticks, bricks and rocks to bash over the heads of their ideological enemies.

I saw this documentary that dealt with this problem in a most pragmatic way. it was called “The Purge”.

When the butchers bill is paid, there will be no “Kool” slang.
Very naive collective of lefty blivets and a$$hats.

Among some extremists, it may even signify an increased willingness to engage in violence.

Antifa has certainly shown a willingness for violence. Why are they not labeled extremists? When confronted with violence your choices are run, surrender or fight. I think the author confuses the right’s choice of the latter with wishing for the boogaloo. That is completely wrong. It is the radical left that is attacking every established norm and tradition. Our resolve to say no is what the chattering class equates with extremism. Eff them too.

This was all predicted in 1970, after the breakup of the Beatles...

John: “imagine there’s no heaven. It’s easy if you try.”

Paul: “maybe I’m amazed at the way you love me all the time!”

George: “my sweet lord. I really wanna see you...”

Ringo: “BAAACK OFF BOOGALOO!”
