The Guardian today published an article from Jason Wilson reporting on 2020 Libertarian presidential nominee Jo Jorgensen’s appearance on “Roads to Liberty” podcast, which Wilson claims is associated with the “Boogaloo” movement. “Boogaloo” is the right wing codename for a second civil war. Supporters of the movement want to bring about civil war either for racial or anti-government purposes.
Wilson connects one of those asking questions on the podcast, named “Squid,” to a Facebook group he says is “strewn with memes that reference insurrectionary violence, and appear to invoke white nationalist and neo-Nazi imagery and subject matter.” Squid asks Jorgensen about “boogaloo” on the podcast but she does not seem to know much about it.
For the report, Wilson reached out to Jorgensen, who now seems more versed in the “Boogaloo” movement.
“The boogaloo movement is highly decentralized and comprises both those who are aligned with the principle of nonaggression, and some who run counter to it,” she writes. “The media tend to lump together peaceful protesters and those who advocate violence, and paint the entire group as being violent […] I welcome the support of anyone who will reject violence and bigotry in favor of non-aggression, peaceful persuasion, and voluntary cooperation.”
Near the end of the article, Wilson brings up attorney Augustus Sol Invictus, who lost in the 2016 Libertarian primary for US Senate in Florida. He uses Invictus to connect the Libertarian Party to the 2017 Unite the Right March.
