    so the only ones causing any violence at the Boston rally were not the KKK or White Supremacists, or conservatives of any sort...

    Just the Antifa.

    BREAKING: Antifa Attacking Boston PD At Boston Free Speech Rally

    Antifa Rioters Attack Police At Boston Free Speech Rally

    Boston, MA An estimated over 20,000 people showed up to Boston to protest the Free Speech Rally after it was reported that the free speech group was made up of white supremacists. Antifa among the counter-protesters began attacking police Saturday afternoon.

    Around 50 people showed up to attend the Free Speech Rally, none of them are known white supremacists and no white supremacist symbols were being displayed.

    After the 50 people at the free speech rally gave speeches, police tried to transport them out and Antifa members began to mob them and throw objects at police officers. Those officers were in their patrol uniform with no protective gear.

    Multiple arrests have been made as crowd control officers responded and took down some of the Antifa agitators.

    Most of the people in the crowd are not engaging in violence, but Antifa is using those people as cover to attack the Boston Police officers.

    Earlier in the day, near the start of the counter-protest march, an Antifa member attacked a woman who was holding an American flag. The Antifa hit her, and dragged her across the ground as he stole her flag. The moment was captured on video.

    Who still believes Antifa were the innocent victims in Charlottesville?

    The Boston police chief referred to antifa and other counter-protesters as being anti-free speech in a news conference which for the most part is spot on.

    I've referenced this article a few times this morning, but these statements put matters into perspective when it comes to how the MSM covers both sides:


    http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/mas...7Kz&ocid=edgsp

    Counterprotesters marched through the city on Saturday to historic Boston Common, where conservatives had planned to deliver a series of speeches but soon left. Police vans later escorted the conservatives out of the area, as boisterous counterprotesters scuffled with police.

    Opponents feared that white nationalists might show up in Boston anyway, and turned out in force, some dressed entirely in black with bandannas over their faces.

    Members of the Black Lives Matter movement held a protest on the Common, where a Confederate flag was burned and protesters pounded on the sides of a police vehicle.

    Rallies in other cities around the country, while smaller, also were forceful.

    In Dallas, a scuffle broke out between people at a rally against white supremacy and supporters of Confederate monuments as the event was ending. Police officers had to subdue the crowd.

    "It's easier to say that it's not our [US Democrats'] fault, but Russians' fault, say that they interfered with the elections... It reminds me of anti-Semitism, when everything is Jews' fault. Someone is a mutt, can't do a thing, but the Jews are to be blamed. But we know where such an attitude leads to, it never ends well"

    Don't worry, guys, it was just a "scuffle".
