Jokes on you chump! Snatched up by the feds this morning during a raid! We knew this was going to happen sooner or later!
Paul Miller, the Boogaloo Boy from New Brunswick, NJ who has made a name for himself over the past few months as a neo-Nazi internet troll, was arrested today in his Florida apartment by the FBI working with the Joint Terrorism Task Force on charges of being in possession of a weapon while a convicted felon.
According to news reports, the FBI conducted a raid on Miller’s home at approximately 6 AM and he was taken into custody. Video taken by his neighbors show Miller, 32, being led away by police. Witnesses to the raid have said authorities were seen removing boxes containing firearms from the home. Miller often displays a handgun in the videos he has of himself, although one channel he maintains does not appear to have videos on it at this time. Currently, he operates an account on Telegram called the Gypsy Crusader News Network.
Miller is originally from North Brunswick, NJ where his family owns one of two tarot card shops, the another in nearby New Brunswick where he resided until he moved to Florida in the fall, living in the Ft. Lauderdale home only since Feb. 1. Calling himself “Gypsy Crusader”, he is involved in the so-called “Boogaloo Movement” and has said on now-deleted Instagram videos that the Boogaloo is the second civil war that will happen if the right feel it cannot win national elections anymore, and that it may be due to demographic shifts in the nation. Ironically, Miller is part Romanian and Mexican.
Miller participated in the Reopen rallies in New Jersey, covering them for his various social network outlets, but after the George Floyd protests and uprisings became increasingly antagonistic towards the Black community after an altercation between his mother and protesters outside their home and began to promote neo-Nazi groups such as Patriot Front.
In November 2018 he was a part of the brawl alongside the Proud Boys with antifa in New York outside a Republican Club that Proud Boy founder Gavin McInnes was speaking at. Several Proud Boys and at least one member of the 211 Boot Boys were convicted of assault for the brawl, with two currently in prison. Miller was not charged with any crime, and was able to appear on a One America News Network (OANN) segment to tell his story about the incident. In the past he has used his platforms to threaten U.S. Rep Ilhan Omar and Microsoft founder Bill Gates, and cheered on the New Zealand mass shooting by White supremacist Brandon Tarrant at a mosque.

In recent months, Miller has appeared on Omegle, a free chat room website users can socialize with others without the need to register, where he would harass those he came across with racial insults while dressed in a series of characters, particularly the Joker and Riddler. He gained a bit of a following from that, even selling patches of the Joker and Riddler to supporters. It is unknown if DC Comics, who owns the characters is supportive of their usage by Miller.
When Miller moved to Florida, he boasted about the possibility of racial violence to his mother in a video, saying that unlike in New Jersey, he would be “able to shoot them”. He also has celebrated using racial slurs in Florida more freely, and that generated him more attention in January when he and his brother videotaped themselves harassing and threatening a Black man in Deerfield Beach, FL.
In November, Miller spoke of the possibility of martyring himself in the name of a Nazi cause on a YouTube video. “I’m 32 years old, I don’t have children, I don’t have a girlfriend,” he said. “If they kill me, what is lost? Nothing. Nothing is lost. The only thing that it will do is accelerate what must happen, that’s it. My life was worth something.”
The FBI has been monitoring Miller for well over a year, and even visited his New Brunswick, NJ home in May. It is not known at this time what felony convictions Miller has.
