And the wide range of events protected by the First Amendment here, ”Politico reported.
In its June 15 assessment, NTIC found that “recent events indicate that violent supporters of the Boogaloo ideology likely reside in the National Capital Region, and others may be willing to travel long distances to incite civil unrest or driving the violence encouraged in online forums associated with the movement. “
On Friday. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said that while Washington D.C. It is an attractive target, other cities should also be on alert, as the ideology of boogaloo is not limited to one place.
