The Guardian Reports on Jo Jorgensen’s Appearance on Alleged Boogaloo-Connected Podcast

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.

    Back Off Boogaloo was song by Ringo Starr . This song was done in the early 1970’s when the BEATLES where fighting one another, It is a reference to Paul Mccartney ( the cute one ) But then again there is a conspiracy hoax the Paul is Dead. Look at the Abbey Road Album and Paul is a barefoot which means he is dead.
    The boogaloo movement is in cahoots with Paul in his fight with Ringo,, By the way which side is Yoko
    Ono on ? Don’t forget the Beatles were communist agents by promoting the song”Back In The U. S.S.R”

    Breakin’ 2.

    Of course the Guradian tries to smear the LP. Fear mongering in support of the duopoly.

    I prefer “Photograph” or “Oh My My,” but Ringo is the most mathematically successful Beatle. 8 of his first 9 singles were Top 10 hits, and 7 of 8 were Top 5 hits.

    Happy 80th birthday Ringo.

    Ringo said somewhere”Everything the government touches turns to shit” ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Don’t forget
    George wrote “Taxman” but Paul played lead guitar on that one. I think if John lived long enough he would evolved into being a Libertarian. He mentioned that when he and Yoko bought a farm in Upstate
    New York …… he said we are Capitalists now.

    Apparently Dr. Jorgensen believes there are some very fine people in the movement, as does Pres. Trump.

    Not the same movement. While there are some Nazis who pop up on boog open message boards, just like there are on l.p. Or small l boards, I’ve yet to see a boog event where people march alongside Nazi flags like in Charlottesville. In the US today there are in fact many fine people who post on the same message boards as open racists do, but none who March in parades alongside people carrying Nazi flags with the throng chanting slogans about racial replacement, evil Jews, blood and soil, etc. Any fine people who mistakenly found themselves there would immediately leave rather than keep marching. The guardian is trying to paint the much less noxious boog movement as being the same thing, but that’s bullshit.

    Attended a candlelight vigil associated with a movement with a violent left-wing fringe of which she was aware?

    Nobody cares.

    Guest on a podcast associated with a movement with a violent right-wing fringe of which she was not aware?

    Burn the witch!

    Any decentralized movement is going to have a fringe. It should never keep us from working with the better elements in any movement, and using them to build our own, while making sure we clearly dissociate from all those violent fringes.

    The only movement I see with Hawaiian short wearing jokesters and white nationalists wanting a race war is a drain. And drains aren’t all that “decentralized”; in this instance, a vortex will form around the worst elements, sucking any associations down with it, including the reputation of the LP–if anyone actually gave a fuck.

    I’ve seen stuff about boog working together with BLM. Nazis try to leech on to everything from libertarianism to conservatism to progressivism (often through anti-zionism) to environmentalism to any kind of music scene or sports fans or …well, you name it. Hell they got nazi rap as illogical as that may be. So a few nazis posting on boog boards means… what?

    This is the quality content that makes IPR my second favorite English-language website on the interwebs (ok fine, I’ll just admit IPR was recently surpassed on my favorite websites list by Andrew Anglin’s Daily Stormer….sorry, I have a lot of serious flaws, and I’m also addicted to other drugs (DS is a drug for me unfortunately, I’ve unsuccessfully tried so many times to quit it) like nicotine and cannabis, and embarrassingly pornographic videos, though the Daily Stormer is the worst drug I’m addicted too.

    William, you are correct, I think. Since we’re also discussing music a little bit though it’s a sidetrack, I’ll sign off with a song as well:

    George Harrison & Ringo Starr – While My Guitar Gently Weeps (The Prince’s Trust Rock Gala 1987)

    (Video won’t embed after editing, it did before I edited my comment, FYI)

    If you stop being embarrassed about porn you might have an easier time quitting the nazi shit.

    Polish patriotism and Germanic national socialism are incompatible with each other, just for clarification, but yes, perhaps you’re right about stopping being embarrassed about human sexuality and sexually explicit audio-visual content on the interwebs. I need to quit the Daily Stormer because it is terrible for my mental health – Anglin’s site is extremely negative, very misogynistic and unfathomably sexist.

    As one might easily figure, since I’m a 24 year old virgin, I can confirm that many people that consider themselves “involuntary celibate” (I don’t want to pay a hooker, or even a dominatrix anymore) gravitate towards the extreme far-right. They feel alienated from society because they feel they are unable to get laid no matter what they do.

    Long story short: it didn’t work out for me at all with the Polish blonde dominatrix last year. That was to be expected, though. It was rough as hell though. I fell in love for the first time ever but you know what- I’m trying hard to move on and live a better life and find a new Polish blonde (I have a fetish for those blonde Slavic goddesses).

    Just get laid already. It’s not that hard if you can handle rejection. Ask as many women as you find attractive. Make it explicit, not insanely aggressive but make your intent completely obvious. Just ask matter of factly. You may get slapped a few times and you will get lots of nos but you will get some yeses. Also try advertising, be honest about what you want but keep it short and simple because a lot of people are dumb and have short attention spans, especially when horny.

    And paying a hooker is not a big deal, it can be expensive and often not worthwhile and there are a lot of ripoffs. But if it makes you less awkward in getting non paid dates it’s worth it.

    If you have a problem finding willing women , maybe you should lower your standard. Too many guys are subject to lookism. How about a nice personalty instead of beauty ? There was once a popular song in the 1960’s called ” If you want to be happy ” by Jimmy Soul the main theme is “If you want to be happy for the rest of your life got an ugly woman to be your wife , for my personal point of view get an ugly girl to marry you. My uncle once told me it is better to marry an ugly woman than a beautiful woman. Because a beautiful woman could leave you. I then asked so can an ugly woman . He responded ” yeah , but when an ugly woman leaves you you want feel so bad. Thank you Henny Youngman for the joke.
