Boston Shows America’s Greatness, No Thanks To Donald Trump

As we previously reported, the people of Boston showed up in the thousands to protest a “Free Speech” rally featuring right-wing speakers on Saturday.

According to MSN reports, the number of protesters far outnumbered the few dozen rally attendees who showed up for what many feared could become another racist and violent showing like the one in Charlottesville last weekend.

Thousands more protestors were prevented from entering Boston Common park by some 500 or so city police officers who placed barricades to stop vehicle entry while a cordon was also built around the site for the rally.

Organizers of the Boston rally denounced the violence and white supremacist message of Charlottesville and promised peace at their event.

“The point of this is to have political speech from across the spectrum, conservative, libertarian, centrist,” said Chris Hood, an 18-year-old Boston resident who stood among a crowd of a few dozen people who planned to join the Free Speech rally. “This is not about Nazis. If there were Nazis here, I’d be protesting against them.”

Meanwhile, the people of Boston were NOT taking kindly to the Trump supporters on the scene

When two male rally participants wearing Trump’s red “Make America Great Again” campaign hats attempted tried entering the protest pen police set up to separate the two sides they were swarmed by black-clad protesters as the crowd screamed “go home” and “no hate” at them.

Not everyone was hostile however…

And back on Twitter, ol boy 45 pretended to know what was going on. SMH. It’s hard to understand how anyone continues to support him.
