The anti-government "boogaloo" movement just got a huge kick in the teeth from Facebook, where it's been trying to build support for its violent aspiration of a civil war.

On Tuesday, Facebook announced it has designated a core online network of boogaloo adherents as a "dangerous organization." The social media giant also conducted a "strategic network disruption" of the boogaloo online infrastructure, removing 220 accounts, 28 pages, 106 groups, and 95 Instagram accounts that Facebook determined were part of this core boogaloo network.

The platform also removed 400 additional groups and over 100 other pages for hosting content affiliated with the core boogaloo network.
