"No Violence": Boston Mayor Promises Barricades, 500 Cops At "Free Speech" Rally

Tyler Durden's picture

Boston Police are bracing for violence to break out at today’s “free speech” rally and have taken precautionary measures to prevent it from devolving into a clash between extremists and demonstrators on both sides of the ideological spectrum. To enhance public safety, police have put up road blockades and gone so far as to ban food vendors from the historic Boston Common, where the demonstration is expected to take place, as they hope to prevent a repeat of the Charlottesville attack last weekend according to Reuters.

“Some 500 police officers will be on the streets around the popular tourist destination. They are planning to close some roadways to vehicles, mindful of the car attacks that killed a woman in Charlottesville and 13 in an attack in Barcelona on Thursday.

"We all know the tragedy that happened in Barcelona. That only makes us more vigilant," said Boston Police Commissioner William Evans, who was the department's second-in-command during the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.”

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh said the city would ban demonstrators from carrying anything that could be used as a weapon, adding that violence would not be tolerated.

"We are going to respect their right to free speech. In return, they have to respect the safety of our city," Walsh said. "If anything gets out of hand, we are going to shut it down."

The flash point will likely arrive when a “Fight White Supremacy” march set to begin in the historically black Roxbury neighborhood collides with the demonstrators on the Commons Saturday afternoon.

“Our job is to make sure that as the peace rally enters into Boston Common that the folks that come in there feel safe, that we don't have an incident that happened like last week in Virginia,” Walsh said.

Organizers of the free speech event have denounced the type of violence that took place at the rally in Charlottesville.  Speakers at Saturday’s event include Kyle Chapman, a California activist who was arrested at a Berkeley rally earlier this year, and Joe Biggs, formerly of Infowars. Mayor Walsh is warning anyone who doesn’t plan on taking part in the demonstration on the Common to avoid the area, according to CBS Boston.

“They say that interacting with these groups just gives them a platform to spread their message of hate,” said Walsh. “They recommend that people should not confront these rallies. So we’re urging everyone to stay away from the Common.”

Somehow, we doubt thar "everyone" will heed the mayor's advice.

Has it occured to anyone that if you just leave the idiots alone, they might just fade away?

When my three year old would act up I would simply ignore him. After 30 seconds of tanturm, he found something more interesting to do.

Of course, cameras turn idiots into emboldened idiots...or worse.

There is no comparison between what happened in Charlottesville, a deranged driver, and Catalonia, jihadists spending weeks planning a bomb attack.

The police chief is justifying his paycheck. Selling fear in the name of protecting public safety. Logic and reason is not welcome and will be removed from Boston, at gun point if necessary.

These street 'battles' represent the direction the country will take. Politicians are watching to see who is stronger. If the commies win, the left will eat Trump alive and the cuckservatives will allow it.

Don't even pretend street protests in the 60s didn't matter boomers.

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

Politicians are attention whores pure and simple. Their objective is to gain power and then keep it. Whichever way the wind blows you are sure to find a politician modifying a previous statement to adjust to the gale force winds.

To expect moral leadership from modern day politicians is to expect a professional whore to remain celebrant. It just ain't gonna happen and we are fools if we expect it to.

i reserve the right to hate anyone i please. also, i can take care of my own safety. i dont need the government.

i got a traffic warning from a state cop recently. at the bottom of the citation it said: "your safety is our business."  no it's not fratboy.  no it's not!

TheObsoleteMan's picture

You failed to understand what they meant by; "Your safety is our business". Under the guise of "protecting you", they will tell you what to do, when to do it, and where to do it. Because harm could come to you, they will also instruct you in what places, people, things and behaviors to avoid. Do you get it now? It's all about keeping you safe, because we all know how much they really care about us taxpayers.

Sorry but if anyone has an issue with freedom of speech it's you that is the extremist and you that are a Traitor to the Constitution.  Who the hell thinks we should have our speech policed? Tyrants that's who. Only a Tyrant or those that support a form of Tyrannical Gov't would want that.

++This comment keeps getting deleted and I am not getting an answer.++

I don't understand why the people opposed to antifa don't just disable their buses. The antifa gangs are bused in and the buses are their safe space. Why hasn't the other side tried to deal with this as a logistics issue? The buses are the snowflakes safe space, and if they were stuck wherever they were for a couple of days or a week they would never travel on them again.

Can someone explain this to me?

Jimmy Jimmereeno's picture

Perhaps the other side does not disable buses because they respect property rights.  No matter what you think of the Antifa thugs, the buses are chartered (I'm guessing) and belong not to the Antifa but to private enterprise.  While there may be little difference philosophically between the left and the right, the right - not the political whores but the grass roots people - still has a semblance of respect for the rules of law.

Something recently arrived up here in the mountains of Southwestern Virginia are police 'safety stops' where they demand your license (to make sure you are properly licensed) check your tags (to make sure you are properly registered) and check your inspection sticker (to make sure to aren't a moving hazard to yourself and your fellow citizens) before ushering you on your way.

Papers please.

for those who thought the natural outcome of a global financial raping was WAR, how many understood that they could DIRECT the war to be intra-national as well as international...

 

there is NO doubt that by destroying countries and embittering their citizens, thereby creating weapons of mass migration to openly infiltrate the offending nations the main objective of global chaos is being fulfilled right in front of our eyes.  24/7 coverage on their owned msm designed to enrage some, scare others is targetted to get people to ACT against their own interests: either by playing their roles in the "square" or by becoming even more accepting of government oppression. 

 

the end game is straight out of bush2, "either you're with us, or you're with the terrorists"...we know now who the REAL terrorist was...

 

whether you call it "divide and conquer" or "keep them fighting amongst themselves so they won't fight us"...don't fall for it...ALWAYS remember who the REAL enemy is

 

how this may play out...market corrects through fall, trump resigns, THEIR boy pence takes over and the market is good for AT LEAST 20% gain as we move into a killery-on-steroids period with the ziocons FULLY in control of EVERYTHING...

Exactly right. Ever been to Dismal World? Teh Tragic Kingdom?   Every single motherfucking announcement begins with these three words, For Your safety--   sit down, hands in, don't run, don't drink, don't have fun.  Control under the cover of public safety.   Fuck public safety.

Interesting that you would mention going to Disney. Because I am a Florida resident, I am entitaled to a 30% discount on admission {only applies to off peak times of the year, but that's alright}. So I thought I would take my youngest daughter and my two grandchildren for a couple of days. I was completely unprepared for what was awaiting us. ORLANDO IS A CRIME INFESTED SHIT HOLE. If you are going to Disney, you better cough up the big bucks {$200+ per night} and stay at one of their resorts located inside Disney's own little town of Buena Vista {that's right, they have their own town, look it up}. Orlando and the surrounding areas are a dump. We spent hours trying to find just a decent hotel, all to no avail. All were been used as a crash pad for undesirables. To their credit, at a few places the management was decent enough to tell me up front when they would see the children, that this was no place for them. No shit. The original place I had booked {the reviews and pictures on the net looked good} when we got there was nothing short of HORRIFIC. Druggie types hanging around outside their rooms looking out over the balconies, prostitutes hanging out by the pool area. There was even any empty 40oz at the bottom of the pool {yes, it was glass}. If memory serves me correct it was a Howard Johnson. Needless to say, Disney can kiss my ass. We went to Lego Land in Winter Haven instead, kids enjoyed themselves, I saved a ton of money, and it was all over in a day. The town was nice and clean too. Driving around in Orlando, I kept the windows up and the doors locked. I also allowed plenty of room between my car and the vehicle in front of me at stop lights just in case. Yes, it is that bad.

So Snowflake Roadshow is moving on to Bawstun huh, I wonder if the delicate snowflake commie army of Soros can break through the police lines protecting Faneuil Hall and burn it down? I mean after all, it was built with money earned by the slave trade...

"It’s a little known fact that Faneuil Hall, which has been dubbed the “Cradle of Liberty” since the American Revolution, was financed with money from Peter Faneuil’s slave trading business."

"At the time, there was no marketplace for peddlers to sell their goods and they often clogged up the lanes and roads with their pushcarts.

After commissioning local artist John Symbert to draw up plans for the building, Faneuil then offered the proposed marketplace as a gift to the city of Boston.

Over 700 Boston town meeting members debated whether to accept the gift before finally voting in favor it."

...burn baby burn ;-)

Never let facts get in the way of a good riot. Righteous indignation is way better than crack or meth. The fricking high is way out there and long lasting too. Not to mention all natural.

Yeah, the facts are definitely NOT whats driving all of this bullshit. 

Rbh110's picture

On the local Boston TV station they were talking about a bill proposed by some black pol in the city to get the name of Faneuil Hall changed to the name of a Black patriot (maybe Crispus Attucks Hall?) given the history of its namesake.

Im not too far from Boston and am tempted to show up with one of either two signs.

"Free Speech does not mean only speech you agree with"

or

A sign with a picture of Farrakhan saying 'Black Supremacist' .

Go for the Farrakhan sign, at least you'll get a reaction. They are waaay too stooopid to understand the other one ;-)

but swampster has a point.  at charlottesville both sides were directed by the same people, michael signer and brennan "cia" gilmore with the antifa (and, likely, actors), and making no secret about it, and jason kessler, late of the obama campaign and occupy, leading (astray) some careless nazis and kkk symps (and maybe some actors as well), all reported by the utterly corrupt legacy media for effect against president trump. and we knew it only hours or days later.

in the '60's the agents provocateur were fewer and far less known.

Those people dressed in black wearing face maks to hide will get pretty upset if they can't get within throwing distance to hurl their urine bags at the others. I doubt they'll get to use their bats and cement soda cans today if the police do their jobs.

 

Interestingly, the Seattle police did a good job arresting these terrorists recently but only because shop owners complained bitterly about their broken windows, etc from antifa. All the violence so far has been from one side ecept for the clashes in Charlottesville. But the 462 other violent episodes were due to antifa and Hillary/Bernie supporters.

One solution is ,,,, if they catch anyone with a bag full of urine or feces, make them drink/eat it. That might give them second thoughts.

Crucial is to force all of them to take off their mask or be detained.

general ambivalent's picture

The police broke the law in Charlottesville. Why are we siding with them?

chubbar's picture

The wearing of masks is illegal in Charlottesville yet the cops didn't do a fucking thing to stop them. They aren't upholding the law on purpose, bunch of fucking assholes paid off by Soros. Problem is that they are protecting the very people that will target them when TSHTF, fucking dolts.

"No Violence": Boston Mayor Promises Barricades, 500 Cops At "Free Speech" Rally"

Yeah... they'll have cops and barricades.  The question is: Will the cops be ordered to aid and abet ONE side - antifa - like they did in Charlottesville?  The (((PTB))) will NOT allow "peaceful" gatherings and free-speech when it comes to those who shed the light of truth on their true essence and machinations.  The cops must react conscientiously and do what is moral, fair and just.  And if the Boston Mayor orders them to stand down against the violent commies, then their duty is to arrest HIM.

Also... the use of the term "white supremacy" is a complete lie.  And "supremacy" is ONLY used when referring to white advocate groups. Is La Raza Latino Supremacy?  Is Black Lives Matter Black Supremacy?  Is the Jewish Defense League Jewish Supremacy? (actually, it is)  What this proves is that ALL of the destructive efforts by the (((culture distorters))) are aimed predominantly at the white race.  Whites must NOT recognize themselves as a unified people.  This will, of course, backfire and cause yet another wave of inevitable pogroms in the West.

jeff montanye's picture

in charlottesville it looked like the police obeyed their civilian leadership, michael "negligent homicide" signer, who ordered them to stand down, obviously so the sides could have at each other and get some good photos and teevee, courtesy of brennan "i ran religious wars in africa for the cia" gilmore.

this is treason.  these zionist weasels deserve a conviction under the wilson espionage act a good deal more than chelsea manning did.

Even Chris Matthews shocked me this week interviewing his alt left guests asking them about the violent antifa and triggered the hell out of them so it almost got into a screaming match since they refused to answer ANY questions about antifa's violence during the past year despite Matthews pressing them on it.

I think as more average hard working people and maybe some media are hit in the head by an antifa soda can or bag of golden alt left urine, they'll start to wake up.

Can't disagree with you. Does it seem to you the white population is being pushed to a point purposefully  so that basically enough of them freak out and a so called "ethnic cleansing" becomes acceptable if not demanded? I have had my issues with first hand negative experiences with "minorities" but I have also had them with "Whites". That said I have no desire to see this happen.  

Thoughts?

How has no investigative journalist done a piece on ANTIFA yet? Shown the behind the scenes of their meetings? Gone to their staging areas where they get on the bus? Find out who the bus companies are being paid by?

Antifa and so-called journalists are fellow travelers, thus no reportage.  As for investigative journalism, that went out the window before y2k.
