The much ballyhooed “Free Speech Rally” in Boston was slightly asymmetrical:
But only a few dozen conservatives turned out for the rally on historic Boston Common — in stark contrast to the estimated 15,000 counterprotesters — and the conservatives abruptly left early…
It was 15,000 lefties vs. 24 conservatives. And these conservatives were not dastardly white identitarians, as the Rally organizers had emphasized their intent:
The Boston Free Speech Coalition, which organized the event, said it has nothing to do with white nationalism or racism and its group is not affiliated with the Charlottesville rally organizers in any way.
“We are strictly about free speech,” the group said on its Facebook page. “… we will not be offering our platform to racism or bigotry. We denounce the politics of supremacy and violence.”
No matter. With only a 625-to-1 advantage (and over 500 police at the event), the Forces of Good still felt triggered and threatened enough to resist (aka initiate violence) in the name fighing Neo-Hitlers:
Rallygoers had been met by thousands of leftist protesters who marched peaceably through downtown Boston on Saturday, chanting anti-Nazi slogans and waving signs condemning white nationalism ahead of the rally.
TV cameras showed a group of boisterous counterprotesters chasing a man with a Trump campaign banner and cap, shouting and swearing at him. Other counterprotesters intervened and helped the man safely over a fence to where the conservative rally was to be staged.
Black-clad counterprotesters also grabbed an American flag out of an elderly woman’s hands, and she stumbled and fell to the ground.
Little old ladies carrying American flags emboldens not only racial intolerance, and the forces of patriarchy and oppression, but it is coded symbolism for neo-Nazism.
And, as we should all know by now, a rally for free speech is indistinguishable from a rally for Nazism.
UPDATE: FNC is now reporting the ratio (per the BPD) was more like 40,000 vs. 100.
