Boston march against hate speech avoids Charlottesville chaos

BOSTON (Reuters) – Tens of thousands of people took to the streets of Boston on Saturday to protest a “free speech” rally featuring far-right speakers a week after a woman was killed at a Virginia white-supremacist demonstration.

Rally organizers had invited several far-right speakers who were confined to a small pen that police set up in the historic Boston Common park to keep the two sides separate. The city avoided a repeat of last weekend’s bloody street battles in Charlottesville, Virginia, where one woman was killed.

Police estimated that as many as 40,000 people packed into the streets around the nation’s oldest park.

Officials had spent a week planning security for the event, mobilizing 500 police officers, including many on bikes, and placing barricades and large white dump trucks on streets along the park, aiming to deter car-based attacks like those seen in Charlottesville and Europe.

    I’ve heard from some who live there that there was violence and arrests in Boston, but it was Antifa starting it and being arrested so the MSM’s keeping it quiet. These days? Who knows who to believe?

    It has become quite evident that the Charlottesville incident was deliberately orchestrated by the Progressive mayor. Peaceful rallies are common. It was the deliberation of creating an atmosphere for violence and then not properly responding to that violence that was at fault in Charlottesville.

    It was handled well by the law and everyone dodged the bullet this time, but things are about to BLOW SKY HIGH !!
