So, some white supremacist pieces of rubbish thought they could cloak another white supremacist event by calling it a “free speech rally.”
But there’s a funny thing about free speech: the people telling you you’re a complete and total monster who must be politically destroyed? They have free speech too. 🙂
Thousands of counter-protesters overpowered a scheduled “free speech” rally by far-right groups in Boston on Saturday.
The “Boston Free Speech Rally,” organized by a coalition of conservative and libertarian groups, comes one week after a deadly rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, which was attended by neo-Nazi groups and KKK members.
By 11 a.m. on Saturday, the group of counter-protesters — which was organized by a coalition of left-leaning groups, including Black Lives Matter — vastly outnumbered those who came in support of the rally. Police announced the rally had ended at 1:30 p.m. on Twitter.
Here’s some of what are think are among the most vital tidbits from today’s action:

Take a look at the early counter-protest vs the size of the Boston rally. The difference is, uh… stark. pic.twitter.com/FKF29uUu7O
