Trump brands Boston anti-racism protesters as 'anti-police agitators'

Trump brands Boston anti-racism protesters as 'anti-police agitators'”

The event, whose participants appeared to number only in the dozens, was undercut by police planning and starved by an enormous buffer zone between the handful of protesters and the overwhelming numbers of their opponents.

Her tweet came several hours after her father, the president, tweeted from his personal Twitter account: "I want to applaud the many protestors in Boston who are speaking out against bigotry and hate".

As some yelled at the Trump fan, other counter-protesters - including a man wearing a "Veterans for Peace" shirt - shouted back, 'No violence! "Our country will soon come together as one".

Thousands of left-wing counter-protesters and Black Lives Matter movement activists came out to protest a "Free Speech" rally hosted for conservatives, libertarians and Trump supporters to show support for free speech.

Officials estimated turnout of about 40,000 demonstrators.

"Looks like many anti-police agitators in Boston".

Just in case anyone in the White House or conservative media tries to demonize these fearless people who stood up against racism, protester Danielle Williams said, "What brought me out here today?" They chanted anti-Nazi and anti-fascism slogans, and waved signs that said: "Make Nazis Afraid Again", "Love your neighbor", "Resist fascism" and "Hate never made USA great".

Following public outrage at his tempered response he finally made a statement denouncing white supremacists and Nazis. Police are looking tough and smart! Boston Police Commissioner William Evans told a press conference that while there were people "who came here to cause problems", authorities were able to maintain order and keep the two sides apart.

He added: "Our great country has been divided for decades".

Despite the skirmishes Saturday, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh-clearly relieved that the protests concluded with no injuries or substantial property damage reported-had words of praise at day's end for the city's police, and even for the protesters.

The organiser of the far-right rally said that the event and its speakers were defending the First Amendment and freedom of expression.

Footage from the rally showed counter-protesters chasing a man with a Trump campaign banner and cap, swearing and shouting at him. "This is our solidarity with the people in Charlottesville, Virginia, as well as a notice to our local leaders that we want all statues dedicated to white supremacists taken down".
