    From what I've heard, the movement is at least partially responsible for some of the riots... most of the protests have been peaceful.

    These people want a civil/race war... they're certain they'll win.

    They have been at some of the protests. They wear Hawaiian shirts and carry guns.
    Three Boogaloo Bois that were arrested by the FBI in NV. The other group that has been at some protests, specifically seen in Washington state, is the Proud Boys they are a white supremacist group. Neither group is showing up to support the protesters. So when you hear about someone getting shot or starting fires those are the first people I would suspect.

    Despite detailed planning, the plot never came about. The men moved on, with aims to disrupt the economy and cause chaos at protests over the death of George Floyd, according to an FBI criminal complaint.

    And all three suspects, arrested on May 30, have military backgrounds. Stephen “Kiwi” Parshall, 35, is a former Navy sailor from Las Vegas; 23-year-old Andrew Lynam is a U.S. Army Reservist from Henderson, Nevada, and William Loomis, 40, is a former airman in the U.S. Air Force from Las Vegas.

    The article lists several others in other states that have been arrested at the protests.

    I haven't seen too many groups supporting Al-Qaeda, the KKK, or ISIS... and I can't say I'm sorry for their loss.

    My understanding of this group is that they are somewhat diverse. I know in some instances they supported BLM in their right to protest. "We don't want violence, the last thing we want is violence:" Self-proclaimed "Boogaloo Bois" among armed Idahoans at protests

    Here is what one TV station suggests:
    "The Boogaloos are an emerging incarnation of extremism that seems to defy easy categorization. They are yet another confounding factor in the ongoing effort among local, state and federal officials to puzzle out the political sympathies of the agitators showing up to the mostly peaceful George Floyd rallies who have destroyed property, looted businesses, or — in the case of the Boogaloos who descended on Minneapolis — walked around the streets with assault rifles.

    Boogaloo members appear to hold conflicting ideological views with some identifying as anarchists and others rejecting formal titles. Some pockets of the group have espoused white supremacy while others reject it. But they have at least two things in common: an affinity for toting around guns in public and a “boogaloo” rallying cry, which is commonly viewed as code for another US civil war."Gun-toting members of the Boogaloo movement are showing up at protests - Local News 8

    Kinda tough if you're just a fan of 1980s dance movies that are the sequel to "Breakin' " though...

    Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo - Wikipedia

    Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films - Wikipedia

    Back in the 1980s "boogaloo" was a harmless term that had the same connotations as "shindig".

    As can be seen from my above links, the term was used both in the title of a 1984 break-dancing movie *and* a 2014 documentary about the production company that made said movie. I actually have the latter in my collection, and am looking to obtain the former in due time.

    Proud Boys are basically a right-wing paramilitary group. It's not hard to figure out what they are trying to do, with close connections to some of Trump's closest henchmen like Roger Stone.

    Personally they remind me of the manson family. The manson family had helter skelter, the boogaloo boys have their thing. Both want a big race war.

    It's based on the very bad movie "Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo". The term "<Something> 2: Electric Boogaloo" is usually used for something that happens again and is either poorly done or entirely unwanted; though some people use it for any major event happening again.
