Oh nonsense this article makes it sound way sexier than it was :roll_eyes:. I was there and this was just a tiny handful of white supremacists hiding in a cupola surrouded by police officers and wide open barricaded off spaces surrounded by a HUGE crowd of overwhelmingly laid back “protesters” of every shape size color age and gender. We were hiding under the big old trees, occasionally chanting or whatever, until

the whimpy white supremacists in the cupola left. And they did, an hour early, because hey they couldn’t have had much to talk about - there were only about 25 of them​:rofl::rofl::rofl:

Ok I can get these pictures smaller, but they are blurry. Better just to click on the blank white spaces and see the originals

They couldn’t even afford a loudspeaker. They tried to raise money for one on Facebook and raised a whopping $9.00 before Facebook took it down. :slight_smile:

The state’s public safety secretary told WBUR that the few dozen rally attendees were escorted away and into police vehicles for their own safety.

With the exception of the White (Supremacist) House grounds, it’s hard being a popular neo-Nazi these days.

Pobre bastardos.

Some of the counterprotestors sprayed Trumpistas with Silly String. 45 will claim it was a “chemical attack.”

And thanks for sharing your pictures. It actually looks like it was a nice, reaffirming day, with no confrontations of the kind I had been fearing. Good on you for going. Nice weather too.

I love Boston. Three cheers for Boston today!

you got way closer to the action than I did. I was in the march from Roxbury and by the time we got to the common the whole “free speech” rally was over and gone!

It was such a great march… sooo many people, and lots and lots of incredible energy the whole way.

All in all, a great show of solidarity in Boston today.

ridiculous. The police all along the march were laughing and chatting with the marchers. And at the end after they cleared the street, all the bicycle cops rode by and the remaining crowd applauded them.

Why can’t I see any pictures? Argggghh.

Anyway, a big thanks to the counter protesters. Today is my dear old Dad’s birthday and he’s been increasingly worried about race riots or some kind of race war breaking out. I called him to the TV and showed him the counter protesters and pointed out that most of them are white. I said, “Over 20,000 mostly white people came out to stand up against hate. This is who is on our side. There’s a whole lot more of us than them.” He lit up like a Christmas tree, and said it made him feel a lot better.

Organizers of the “free speech” rally had distanced them selves from the white nationalists

So if you take out the white-supremacists, the neo-nazis, and assorted facists and you keep the “fine people” that Trump was talking about, you end with a handful idiots that haven’t came out of the racist closet.
