Looks like someone who needs some break lights replacing, maybe two tires as well.

This is light. We used to deal with Nazis much differently back in the day

What does the BODG stand for?

[–] abbotsbury 58 points 1 month ago (3 children)

It says BOOG, as in boogaloo, as in Civil War 2: Electric Boogaloo

[–] dohpaz42 43 points 1 month ago (8 children)

You’ve got to be kidding? They’re appropriating Electric Boogaloo (a film about break dancing and the black community) as their slogan? That is wrong on so many levels.

[–] [email protected] 23 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago) (3 children)

Not only that, according to the wikipedia article OP linked:

"The boogaloo movement has created logos and other imagery incorporating [igloo] snow huts and Hawaiian prints based on these derivations."

If white supremacy was so "supreme", why are these morons using Indigenous-based iconography for their movement I wonder. They'll claim it's to "fly under the radar", but that just makes them look even more smooth brained.

These idiots are the most adolescent childish racists ever.

This is the equivalent of a 10th grader typing 80085 into the school calculator!

I’m sitting behind a California plate that reads “88 RISE”. Is that…?

[–] [email protected] 20 points 1 month ago (2 children)

Could be 88 Rising. The asian music production company that has some great Asian artists.

[–] [email protected] 25 points 1 month ago (1 children)

I'm gonna go ahead and guess nobody got a vanity plate about an Asian music production company unless they own that company.

[–] [email protected] 15 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago) (4 children)

From Wikipedia:

Headquartered in New York City, the company also has offices in Los Angeles and Shanghai.

So it could be a company car.

I wonder how Thomas Kia feels about the shout out.

Doesn't count unless it's on a Volkswagon, otherwise they're just pretending

[–] [email protected] 29 points 1 month ago

It's not Nazis unless it's on a Volkswagen, otherwise it's just sparkling fascism.

[–] [email protected] 26 points 1 month ago (12 children)

So, funny story, as a kid my favorite number was 8, had a few reasons that matched 8.

So I always used it in names and such. But, often it wasnt unique, so I used 88 instead. Emails, account names, even video game characters have 88 in them to this day.

... Am I accidentally a Nazi?

[–] [email protected] 20 points 1 month ago (3 children)

Born in 1988? Lots of folks born that year decided to have those two digits in their first Internet usernames as well. A few of those will still be in use, no doubt, so you're not alone. (Me? No, I'm older.)

In your shoes, I'd maybe think about changing things around, especially the easy ones, but you're not me, nor I you.

My wife’s pet name is Boog, and I’m determined not to let Nazis take it away.

Maybe they just really like Boogey2988. In which case, yeah, report them.

The disambiguation page for Boogaloo is now a bunch of awesome shit like music and dance styles plus an extremist movement...

Fuck you, choose a different name for your whack ass antics.

[–] [email protected] 14 points 1 month ago (3 children)

I refuse to stop adding "2: Electric Boogaloo" to the end of literally any and everything much to the chagrin of those around me.

So I grew up in Canada, on the west coast, basically Vancouver. So I'm well aware of the dog-whistles. I now live in Scotland. There was an event where I work recently, and the event contractors were 88 Events. And immediately I was like: FUCKIN NAZIS!

My wife seems to think that they're too...idk...girly? to be nazis, but where the fuck did 88 come from, they started up in 97, so couldn't be that. I feel like I'm being fuckin paranoid, but the fascy bastards are coming out the woodworks lately...shrugs

[–] [email protected] 18 points 1 month ago (6 children)

Looks like they just had an unfortunate address where they started out:

Many moons ago (1996 to be precise), Sheila Samuels decided to start an events company, working out of the bathroom in her home at no.88 Ayr Road

The best part is it also advertises how many of his own boogers he eats per week.

I find it somewhat odd that there wouldn’t be at least one “infowarrior rides” bumper sticker. Guess they just wanna be a lowkey shithead with the vanity plate.

[–] abbotsbury 14 points 1 month ago

yep, they call it "being crypto" or "hiding their power level"

[–] [email protected] 12 points 1 month ago

Im trying, but i didnt take any saws with me :(
