The white supremacists and neo-Nazis that Trump endorsed as good people had to cut their rally short as counter protesters in Boston chanted, “Get the f**k out of our city.”
Opposition groups began to march on the streets of Boston Saturday (August 19) ahead of a “Free Speech” rally with right-wing speakers, a week after a woman was killed at a Virginia white-supremacist protest.
Streets around Boston Common were lightly trafficked early on Saturday, while some 500 police officers placed barricades to prevent vehicles from entering the park, the nation’s oldest.
Last weekend’s violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, where one woman was killed in a car rampage after bloody street battles, ratcheted up racial tensions already inflamed by white supremacist groups marching more openly in rallies across the United States.
Just in case anyone in the White House or conservative media tries to demonize these brave people who stood up against racism, protester Danielle Williams said, “What brought me out here today? I wanted to use my faith voice to say that enough is enough. I feel that with Donald Trump and what he stands for, the message of hate that he stand for needs to be diluted with love, and that’s why I came here today.”
