what the fuck is wrong with america

If you have something so weird, strange or off-topic to post and think it doesn't belong in any other forum; you're probably right. Please put all your gormless, half-baked, inane, glaikit ideas in here. This might also be a place where we throw threads that appear elsewhere that don't belong ANYWHERE end up, instead of having to flush them. FORUM RULES STILL APPLY.

Police: 'Umbrella Man' was a white supremacist trying to incite George Floyd rioting

Accused Killer Of California Cops Was Associated With Right-Wing 'Boogaloo Movement'

From day one, some of the media tried to connect this to "right-wing" groups, despite little to zero evidence. Boogaloo was an internet meme that got dropped rather quickly and may have picked up by-speculating here-undercover agents.

As for the first story:
Aryan Cowboy Brotherhood
Really expect anyone to believe that?

I imagine many of the anarchist sorts may have come from out of town but that would be a solidly left-wing. The Black looters was probably much local and organic in nature.

(This is not a go at you personally, just a healthy dose of skepticism.)

Keep believing in "feels before reals", I don't really care, but I am curious where you get your "information" from if it isn't from the media. (This is not a go at you personally, just a healthy dose of skepticism.)

The Electric Boogaloo meme has come to life, just like incels and all the rest that started out as a stupid childish joke and crossed over. I spend a lot of time on those forums and some of them are completely out to fucking lunch.

Anyways, here's a fairly detailed article from The Atlantic:

"what the fuck is wrong with america' (?)

agree. totally. 100%. it's beyond belief. top of my head: the circulated money itself is actually looking third-world. worse. taped, limp. torn. bleached. even from atms at times! then there's all the mental americans walking around. another chunk is always pissed off, ready to throw over peanut skins. then the red tape on everything. aiy.
Read 2-3 times. No idea. Fascinating.

Here ya go:

Hatewatch has found that far-right extremists’ on-the-ground involvement in these protests has been both fragmented and limited.


Also, most of the Alt Right accounts on Twitter told their guys to stay away from the "protests".
