Tens of thousands of people converged on the city of Boston to protest a group of less than a hundred gathered at the Boston Common to promote free speech.The media, liberals, progressives, and Antifa immediately labeled them as “white supremacists” and “Nazis.”
Counter-protesters were chanting slogans like “Whose streets? Our streets!” and “No Trump, No KKK, No Fascist USA.” They even held signs like “Resist,” “Black Lives Matter,” and “Get the hell off my lawn, you bigots.”
Tensions were high as Antifa clashed with police officers who attempted to protect the rally. Antifa threw rocks and bottles of urine at Trump supporters and police officers.

It was relatively peaceful until the Trump supporters attempted to leave the rally when it ended with a police escort. They were mobbed by counter-protesters where they got hit with water bottles, glitter, and spray paint.
One woman holding an American flag was assaulted by a member of Antifa.
While counter-protesters thought they were fighting against Nazis, the KKK, and white supremacists, they were actually fighting against a Republican Massachusetts Senatorial candidate who was born in India, Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai. He gave a 12-13 minute talk over a megaphone about the importance of free speech. Supporters of every color were standing behind him with signs that read “Black Lives DO Matter” and “Real Jobs, Real Health, Real Education.”
“They tried to stop us today, didn’t they?” Ayyadurai, who’s running for Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) seat, said to the crowd. “But we weren’t cowed down.”
Ayyadurai then pointed out the real racists were in the Democratic party, accusing former Vice President Joe Biden, former Sen. Harry Reid, and former President Jimmy Carter of making racist comments throughout their time in office.
“The Establishment is what’s infested with racists. I don’t see any racists here.”
Boston police have reported over 33 people have been arrested during today’s protests.
