Liberals are literally protesting AGAINST free speech in Boston today

Though it was billed as a “free speech rally,” the event in downtown Boston on Saturday sparked plenty of confrontations and profanity-laced outbursts.

Thousands of leftist counter-protesters descended on rally attendees at the Boston Common pavilion, waving signs and chanting anti-Nazi slogans. Their efforts seem to have cut the rally short, as  right-wing rally-goers left early without making any of their planned speeches.

Though rally attendees under a pavilion were surrounded by metal barriers and dozens of police, they were met with sometimes violent protesters – especially if they sported any pro-Trump gear.

Counter protesters carrying signs declaring “Black Lives Matter” and “Hate Has No Home In Boston,” drowned out rally goers who attempted to speak.

So much for free speech.

And so much for advice from the Boston Police Department ahead of the event for which the city of Boston granted a permit earlier in the week.

Hundreds of police officers, security cameras and barriers were at the ready for the event, anticipating the large crowds.

Counter protesters arrived early and marched through downtown Boston with their signs and chants.

Event organizers had distanced themselves from neo-Nazis, white supremacists and others who were part of the  “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia last week which turned violent. Only a few dozen showed up for the Boston event but were met with thousands of opponents and Antifa who were convinced white supremacists and Ku Klux Klan members would be present.

One anti-fascist activist who had come to protest grabbed and ran off with a flag a woman was carrying, dragging her along behind him until she fell.

Other confrontations were also observed and many shared photos and videos from the event.
