Federal prosecutors in Las Vegas have charged three men alleged to be members of the far-right extremist "Boogaloo" movement with multiple state and federal violations of conspiracy to cause destruction during protests in Las Vegas, as well as possession of Molotov cocktails.
Charging documents say Stephen T. Parshall, aka "Kiwi," 35; Andrew Lynam, 23; and William L. Loomis, 40, all of Las Vegas, were arrested Saturday on a state criminal complaint alleging conspiracy to commit an act of terrorism, material support for committing an act of terrorism and multiple explosives violations. The plot was foiled with help from an informant, authorities said.
The "Boogaloo" movement, which federal prosecutors describe as a "term used by extremists to signify a coming civil war and/or collapse of society," has been linked to some online posts about protests over the death of George Floyd.
NBC News reported last weekend that members of the "Boogaloo" movement were seen at protests in states including Minnesota and Texas, as well as in Philadelphia.
The movement, which says it wants a second civil war organized around the word "boogaloo," includes groups on mainstream internet platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Reddit, as well as fringe websites including 4chan, according to a report released Tuesday night by the Network Contagion Research Institute, an independent nonprofit organization of scientists and engineers that tracks and reports on misinformation and hate speech across social media.

And if the 'boogaloo' movement is real wearing Hawaiian shirts at events is putting a target on your back.
Is this a false flag? Is this a set-up? These guys don't seem to get caught actually doing anything. They seem to get caught before they do something or are only "seen" at events.
Im sure its really fake but theres NBC news
But there it is right in front of your eyes every night NBC ghetto black boys ghetto blacks and ugly ass white kids associated with antifa the eyes dont lie but you lie your ass off
Whatever, if the law stops idiots from being agitators, use it.
Phony BS pushed by the MSM to deflect from the Obvious: Far Left Commutard rioters are rioting.
Many more Antifa on the street than “boogaloo”. Don’t expect NBC, owned by the vile Roberts family, to report accurately.
If only the media would focus even half the attention on Antifa as they do Boogaloo.
AHA! They found ‘em! The three guys who were able to dupe thousands of people of all colors, sizes and sexes to turn peaceful protestors into rabid rioters, looters and arsonists.
Boogaloo must be the folks who are wearing blackface and impersonating black looters!
Gee, I wonder if that's a George Soros run operation.
The article says this right wing group wants a civil war and collapse of society. That sounds like anarchy. I don’t know any conservatives that want anarchy. Sounds exactly like ANTIFA though. What, exactly, makes these guys ‘right wing’? I’ve never heard of them or what they stand for or want.
Is it “hate speech” if the speaker hates white people?
100s of antifa members actually did “provoke violence at protests”
But hey, we got some old pro 2nd amendment white guys.
Back off Boogaloo.................
They need to dig in to Stephen T. Parshall, Andrew Lynam and
William L. Loomis’s background and see if they are actually right wing. I bet not.
So, they arrested three guys who PLANNED on provoking violence while ignoring thousands of people who are ACTUALLY engaging in violence. Got it.
If you believe a second civil war isimminent and tou wear a hawaiian shirt to a George Flynn protest but you are a leftist, do you get arrested?
Heh, heh. Thank you, Ringo.
Two of the three arrested were FBI agents. Its the same crap as with the KKK in the old days.
I was wondering if anyone would recognize that!..................
