    Spring Must be Early...

    They’ve already kicked off the 2021 riot season in Portland. It may have been about a pipeline from Canada to Wisconsin. It may have been about Minneapolis cops. It may have been provoked by the authorities removing a fence in front of the Courthouse. Or maybe it was just the simple joy of mostly peaceful arson and vandalism.

    I read that the radical TERF group was gaining momentum. There are a lot of cultish groups out there that don't represent any mainstream ideology.

    As well as the radical Smurf “Blue Lives Matter” movement pushing their defund Paw Patrol agenda through mindless violence.

    I heard about a group of armed ( basically) white men who wear Hawaiian shirts as ID garb in these riots. Their MO is to be rabidly anti-police. So they show up to BLM protests to protect the protesters. Ideologically they are neither pro nor con, they’re there in their minds to protect protesters.


    Has anybody heard of this fringe group? Would they be anarchists or a flavor of anarchist?

    The Hawaiian shirts are Boogaloo and they are right wing.

    Snow is forecast for Thursday night and Friday where I am. Spring is not early and we do not have any protesters.

    I didn't realize Jimmy Buffet was a Boogaloo boy, or right wing for that matter. Live and learn!

    The venn diagram of boogaloo boys and Hawaiian shirt wears has two overlapping circles, not one big circle for both.

    So a Hawaiian shirt doesn't automatically label someone as a Boogaloo Boy, good to know! Giggity!!

    Context matters in communication, who knew, Hawaiian shirts as a uniform at a political protest, I think it's pretty safe to say. Hawaiian shirts were an informal (company suggested) uniform for employees at Trader Joe's, though sadly they may have had to change that (yea i'm sick and tired of changing stuff that's harmless, just because it gets appropriated by the lowest common denominator folks). Nope not Boogaloo.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    That’s it, Boogaloo Boys. I have to say, the Hawaiian shirts or a stroke of genius.
