I have to take exception with the story on Aug. 21 regarding the “free speech” rally in Boston. The event organizers claim that we counter- protesters were “opposing something they didn’t realize was a lie” and that they were “mischaracterized.”

A quick google search of “pics of freedom of speech protests in Boston” will show that some of them were carrying KKK flags to go with their MAGA gear.

Make no mistake, these are Nazi flags and celebrate the murders of over 6 million Jewish people, along with the rest of the horrors of the Nazi regime. Anyone who was at the protest with this group and stayed after seeing these flags is a racist, full stop.
