Right wing weirdo event held in Richmond. Boogaloo boy speaker tries to make point that the media falsely labels the movement as racist. This point is undercut when three people throw up a Nazi salute when the speaker asks "how many of us are racist?"

'All those of you who aren't racists, raise your right arm and say after me: Sieg Heil.'

More false-flag incidents. Nazis are very good at this.

I remain skeptical about this. The source is the cops regurgitating an unnamed tipster.

Cops lie, like a lot. They have been caught numerous times lying about "outside agitators" and white provocateurs.

There has been a lot of speculation about this guy since day 1, and I tend to agree this guy is very suspect, but I can't accept the cop's word on this without evidence. Their credibility on these matters is trash.

Reporting makes it sound like there may be an arrest soon. Perhaps there will be verifiable evidence soon.
