Blue Igloo

Sandwich shop fills with Blue Igloo

A squad sized group of people entered a Subway in Raleigh, North Carolina. However, this was different from the typical lunch break you would expect. The group called the Blue Igloo were mostly wearing masks and carrying weapons. Generally, walking into a store with a mask and a gun is a surefire way to draw the eyes of every legal weapon owner around.

However, the Blue Igloo insists they were not looking for a fight. On their Facebook page, they claim the goal was ‘make new friends with like minded people.’ Furthermore, they state they were just looking for ‘fresh air and exercise.’

Blue Igloo is an alteration for the word “boogaloo,” which commonly refers to a civil war or armed insurrection. We messaged the Facebook page and received clarification to that choice of name. Their response stated the name is a pun, but seeing the militarization of police is alarming.

Their Facebook page states they do not tolerate the discussion or planning of anything illegal. They go on to state they believe liberty is more important than safety and they hold no political affiliation. A pinned post insists this is not politically affiliated and party bickering is childish.

In response to reports of the events, Blue Igloo reiterates they were not demonstrating against anything. Additionally, they claim they were simply exercising their legs and constitutional rights as American citizens.

The Facebook page also shared posts stating their support of all citizens to bear arms. They also refer to the troupe of pro-gun advocates only being “angry white rednecks” as being inaccurate. Furthermore speaking to the fact of “if a picture of a group of armed minorities makes you nervous, you need to reevaluate your patriotism.”

Blue Igloo responds to American Grit

We asked the group 3 simple questions.

  1. What do you want people to know about your actions?
  2. Does the name imply a desire to “boogaloo”?
  3. Are the founders military?

Here is their exact response:

1. “I want people to know that we want to peacefully preserve our Constitutional Republic and the rule of law. We want to dispel the trending irrational fear of firearm ownership and the rights to exercise the 2nd Amendment. We believe that an armed society is a polite society, and one of the best ways to do that is to put on a smile, greet people with kindness, shake hands, and just over-all act like a civilized person.
Initially we started to gather because Raleigh Police Department issued a statement that “protesting is not an essential activity.” This was after they dispersed a peaceful protest, and even made several arrests. A clear violation of our rights to redress government.
As the protest continued, we started to see more and more accounts of people being slammed on to police cars, handcuffed, and thrown into the back of vans and hauled off. This really angered a lot of people. And in response, some people started to show up fully armed, as a show of force. We were not going to continue allow police to treat our neighbors this way.
2. The name is a pun, obviously. And no, we don’t wish to go to war, but I think we can see that millions of Americans are starting to see the writing on the wall in terms of living in a police state. Go take a look at the posts here on this page for example. Some departments are even bringing out military MRAPS against otherwise peaceful protests.
Specifically our group, we want peace. We want the rule of law to remain in tact. We also want everyone to know that we are slipping further into tyranny, and there is only so much that the American people are willing to stand by and watch before folks start violently fighting back against it. Hopefully this can be avoided at all costs.
3. Some of us are military, yes. We, just like the police and the politicians, swore an oath to support and defend the constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. And unlike a lot of them, we take that oath with the highest degree of sincerity.”

    I feel like every person has the right to peacefully express themselves and their beliefs. I can see the group’s point about this cou try sliding into tyranny in recent years. Seems like the government is constantly finding am excuse to take our rights away. I am all for this group doing things such as this.

    Open up your federal and state Constitutions, friends.

    It’s not illegal to be different.
    It’s not illegal to be weird.

    I neither endorse nor disapprove of their method but I sure as hell agree with the message. so many of these so-called public safety measures are a clear violation to our constitutional rights! like the right of assembly, for one. clearly those in charge have either ignored our forgotten their oath, “We the people” should peacefully remind them we are citizens not subjects.

      currently the labels “We The People”. ” Militia” and “US Citizens of voting age” all refer to the same group

    Agree what with what I read, confused by what I saw.

    I agree with message in their responses to your questions. But it seems to conflict with the one they are portraying.
    Im basing my opinion solely on the images in the article, I was not there so I admit I’m looking at this very tunnel visioned. Not getting the full picture. Visually I see a group of gun owners meeting to showing off their toys, not unlike a car group meeting at a bowling alley showing off their latest collection.
    However once you hear them speak (when you got your 3 question answers) the picture is very different.
    Im just not sure that I would get the chance to “hear” their message because of what I “see”.

    Cool folks. since when did Government become Sovereign? pretty sure that’s illegal as hell. As an Old Dinosaur I am deeply troubled by what I see coming, actually kinda glad I am not gonna live long enough to see how this show turns out. WAAAAY to many Parasites posing as american citizens. No matter what, things a fixing to get F’Ugly out. IMO there are worse things then dying, worse things then a civil war. Might want to think on that.

    Is a society more polite when every country has nuclear missiles?

    Is a bar room more polite when everyone is holding semiautomatic weapons?

    Or just a little more dangerous? With our without them, the wick is still the same, but the explosives at the end of the wick are maybe just a liiiittle bit bigger in the room that does have semiauto’s. Just maybe.

    Second amendment is all fine and good. Why take your guns to a fast food chain? Has Noone seen how that played out in Falling Down?

    Well done and good form. I have said the same thing repeatedly. I swore an oath to this country and the Constitution. That is all not a politician

    I agree with what they are doing and saying. I took an oath also to protect the Constitution of the US. I seen one person said something about bringing weapons into a restaurant and bar. Those are two totally different places and situations. There are so many politicians that are in it for power and money and not for the people.

    Awesome. I agree with them completely and yes I am prior military and no I do not want to see violence. But I fear it will come if things continue. I am sad that even the thought of such is possible in our country and I look around and see all the innocent lives that would be hurt or ended if it comes. And the blood will be on the hands of the politicians who are pushing this.

    I agree with their statements 100%. Nobody in their right mind want there to be bloodshed,especially on our own soil. The sad reality though is that an uprising of faithful patriots may be only way to get our country back to its former glory.
