But, today… anything goes. If you don’t like what is happening you can just literally throw a fit. Attack our Senators and their families as they eat a meal in a restaurant, threaten their lives and their families lives in their own homes, even threaten our President and bully his child at school. Shame on Americans
Hundreds of people gathered on Boston Common Saturday to protest President Donald Trump’s nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, and to mobilize to vote the president out of office in November.
“We are here today to tell the temporary occupant of the White House (I am sorry but that is a disrespectful way to address the duly elected and serving President of the USA) that his sham of a nomination process is not supported by the American people,” said Siobhan Ready, who organized the march as part of the national Women’s March group. The group stage protests nationwide Saturday. (How do these people presume to speak for ALL AMERICA?)
Ready, a 21-year-old UMass Amherst political science student, said she wants to get more people involved politically to secure equal rights for women, people of color, those in the LGBTQ community, and other marginalized groups. (The most marginalized group in America today is the single white male born in America.)
“We’re not going to allow the Trump administration to dictate who has equal rights and who doesn’t,” she said. (What will they ever consider equal? Much like any other group that feels they have been oppressed, they don’t want equality they want the tables turned. They want to RULE. They want to do unto others as they perceive has been done unto them. Whether their perception is based in reality or not.)
Some protesters donned black face masks with lace trim, a nod to the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who came to be known for the lace collars she added to the traditionally male uniform of judicial robes.,
Others, like Mariah Jacobsen, dressed as handmaids from the dystopian novel The Handmaid’s Tale, about a society in which women are completely subjugated to men. (I have read the writings of the feminists leaders. They want to subjugate men. They prefer that all men be killed and babies too.)
“A lot is happening at once, and speculative fiction is becoming a lot less speculative,” said Jacobsen.
The Women’s March movement grew out of massive protests the day after Trump’s 2017 inauguration, in response to his statements towards women, the fact that he had been accused of sexual assault, and his administration’s pledges to defund Planned Parenthood, repeal the Affordable Care Act, roll back environmental protections, and deport immigrants. (DEPORT ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS! Not those who come to our nation LEGALLY. Just because Feminists CHOOSE to kill their babies rather than prevent pregnancy, does not mean that we the American public should have to pay for their right to do so.)
Now, as Trump nears the end of his first term — and on the first day of early voting in Massachusetts — those gathered in the Common on Saturday decried his steps to follow-through on those pledges, saying Barrett’s nomination to the court would threaten women’s reproductive rights by overturning Roe v. Wade, and eliminating access to healthcare via the Affordable Care Act. (Praise GOD, this HEINOUS CRIME has been forced on the American People WAY TO LONG.)
“We had elected a president who is really good, unfortunately, at keeping his promises,” to attack the Affordable Care Act and a woman’s abortion rights, said State Rep. Lindsay Sabadosa from Northampton. “So here we are, four years after that first march we are back here, and we have to fulfill the promise that we made at that fist march, because we promised we were getting him out of office four years later.” (Like their opinion is the only one that counts, and the voice of the people in the ballot box does not matter.)
During her confirmation hearings, Barrett said repeatedly she is not “hostile” to the Affordable Care Act, but she has published writings in the past critiquing it; she said she would not act with an “agenda” on abortion, but in 2006 she added her name to a newspaper ad calling for an end to the “barbaric legacy of Roe v. Wade.”
Organizers demanded the Senate delay Barret’s confirmation until after inauguration day 2021 and that every vote be counted before a victor is announced in the presidential election. The marchers also demanded Massachusetts pass the Roe Act, a bill designed to ensure state protections for abortion rights are not affected if Roe v. Wade is overturned.
Toiell Washington, 22-year-old co-founder of the group Black Boston, called on participants — the vast majority of whom were white women — to not forget Black women in their activism, as previous feminist movements have historically done.
“A lot of people here identify as feminist,” she said. “i want you all to make sure when you say you’re a feminist, you put intersectional feminist out there. I want you all to make sure that when we march, we’re not just marching for reproductive rights and equal pay and maternal health, we’re marching for our Black and brown sisters as well.” (Wow… don’t you think that says a lot about these people? They are not even inclusive of all FEMINIST Women. They don’t speak for Women who are not FEMINIST… So, they are only concerned for their limited group, and they DEMAND the WHOLE COUNTRY kowtow to their will.)
Demonstrators clash in dueling Copley Square protests
At least three counter demonstrations were planned in response to a “Super Happy Fun America” rally Sunday afternoon.
Demonstrators flocked to Copley Square in Boston on Sunday afternoon for dueling political protests, which at times grew hostile and intense.
One of the events, dubbed a “Peaceful Protest Against Democrat Violence,” was hosted by “Super Happy Fun America,” which also organized the controversial“Straight Pride Parade” in Boston last year.
Slated from noon to 2 p.m., the event called on “Democrats to fully renounce the violent actions of their supporters,” according to the Facebook page.
Organizers added that their rally would also include featured speaker, Rayla Campbell, a Randolph Republican who’s mounting a write-in campaign on the November ballot against Democrat Rep. Ayanna Pressley in the 7th district.“We will peacefully demonstrate with speeches and patriotic banners in order to send a message that our group will not be intimidated into silence by the leftist mob,” organizers wrote on Facebook.
At least three counter protests were scheduled in response to SHFA’s event.
“The Freedom Fighter Coalition” took to Instagram and urged protesters to “grab anything that makes noise, call a friend and come to Copley Square.”
“We must not allow racists [to] come to our city to spew negativity and hatred,” the group wrote.
Another group entitled “Solidarity Against Hate – Boston”set up a “Kick Fascists Out of Boston” demonstration from 11:30 to 3 p.m.
“Fascism is no match for a united people,” organizers wrote on a Facebook page for the event. “Boston is the people’s city and no place for fascists.”
Around the same time, Refuse fascism new england also joined the counter-protest crowd.
“‘Super Happy Fascist America’ is one of the white supremacist MAGA-thug groups spawned by this regime,” the group wrote in a call to action on Facebook. “As part of mobilizing people to drive Trump/Pence from power, we [are] joining with others to counter this fascist rally.”
Photos from the scene showed dozens of protesters supporting President Donald Trump separated from hundreds of counter-protesters by metal barricades. Donning helmets and neon vests, Boston police officers kept blockades around Copley Square in an effort to keep opposing protests separated while state police blocked highway entrances.
Videos showed a person with a transgender pride flag being dragged across the ground outside the Boston Public Library, where SHFA protesters were holding their rally. In the background, someone could be heard yelling “get him out of here.”Other footage showed Trump signs and flags being set ablaze, and counter protesters clashing with police after pulling the metal barriers away from Trump supporters.
As of Sunday night, police have not provided information on any possible arrests.

A 36-foot model of Donald Trump holding Hillary Clinton’s head was burned during annual bonfire celebrations in a British town on Saturday night.
Britons light bonfires and set off fireworks on or near Nov. 5 to commemorate Guy Fawkes’ failed plot in 1605 to blow up Parliament.
The society has created a large-scale effigy of a public figure for for the last 16 years, with previous names including cyclist Lance Armstrong, Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, British Prime Minister Tony Blair and comedian and activist Russell Brand. Last year’s effigy was of FIFA president Sepp Blatter, the former world soccer chief.

Man ‘eats a heart’ over burning US flag as anti-Trump protesters face off with the president’s supporters in Boston (VIDEO)
Two competing rallies were held, totaling roughly 1,000 people between them, in Boston’s Copley Square on Sunday. (Will we let this piddling few speak for ALL AMERICA?)
The ‘Peaceful Protest Against Democrat Violence’ was organized by the Super Happy Fun America group, the same group responsible for the controversial Straight Pride Parade in 2019.
The group called on their political opponents to denounce “the violent actions of their supporters.”“We’re here to have a peaceful protest against Democrat violence,” activist John Hugo told local media. “As you see, the Democrats are here in force… to cause violence and prevent our free speech.”
Counter-demonstrations were held by several groups such as Solidarity Against Hate-Boston, which organized the ‘Kick Fascists Out of Boston’ rally, as well as the ‘The Freedom Fighter Coalition’.
While one activist told the media that Trump is “trying to steal these elections,” some fellow demonstrators were burning an effigy of the president.
At one point, a US flag was set on fire, and afterwards one of the demonstrators appeared to drink blood from a heart, though it’s unclear whether it was a prop or a real heart.
Boston – Antifa member burns the flag and eats a heart. Its supposed to symbolize Trumps heart after he is defeated.

Despite large contingents of heavily-armed state and local Boston police officers dividing the two groups with the use of batons and steel barricades, there were sporadic scuffles throughout the early afternoon, with police forced to intervene to separate the rival factions.
At least two arrests were reported after anti-Trump protesters reportedly assaulted officers. The Trump supporters were eventually escorted from the square by law enforcement.
Anti-Trump Protesters Pretend to Eat Bloodied Heart of President, Burn American Flag
Protesters opposing President Donald Trump on Sunday were filmed burning an American flag and pretending to eat a bloodied heart of the president.
Twitter user Al The Great wrote as a caption to the video, “Antifa burn the US flag and eat a heart symbolic of the President during an anti-democrat violence protest in #Boston #Massachusetts on 10.18.20.”
In the video, one protester can be seen walking through the smoke from a burning American flag as he is surrounded by fellow protesters. He then takes what appears to be a bloody heart, rips it open and pours it on his face, as those around him clap and yell.
“I’m on fire! I’m on fire,” he can be heard yelling.
Several other protesters are heard mockingly yelling “Make America Great Again” and “f*** the nazis” as they jump over the burning American flag.
