    Free Speech Rally, Boston

    It looks like the cops will be pro-active:

    BOSTON (CBS) Boston Mayor Marty Walsh is urging people to stay away from a planned Free Speech Rally scheduled for Saturday on Boston Common.

    why are they telling people to stay away from a free speech rally? It is not being put on by White Nationalists, but Boston Free Speech, an organization that says "We stand for free speech in all forms from all sides of the political spectrum. In Boston and New England." and categorically deny being part of any Nazi or White Nationalist movement.

    From all sides? Sounds pretty Nazi/fascist/white supremacist to me.

    No, their sin is actually supporting free speech and talking about it in public! There are a lot of counter-protesters coming, presumably to protest free speech...

    So now we can have free speech as long as nobody is listening.

    Boston is going

    They want to change the name of Yawkee Way outside of Fenway because the old owner didn't sign a black player until 13 years after Jackie Robinson. Somehow, this made him a terrible racist.

    It seems they're trying to one up each other in extreme lunacy. In that way it sort of reminds me of the Cultural Revolution (except of course without the mass murders).

    I am currently watching the Boston Free Speech rally. At the moment it is pretty peaceful. I did see an antifa thug grab an american flag out of an elderly woman's hand and push her. I did not see any KKK or White supremacy signs anywhere, and most people on both sides seem to be average citizens and not extremists, left or right. I don't see any weapons around either. the police seem to be doing their jobs here and keeping the groups separated.

    But the MSM has already categorized it as a gathering of white supremacists.
