“Everyone is talking politics, not principles": 9 people at Boston’s rally on their experiences

By Alex Ward A national conversation sort of took place Saturday in Boston. BOSTON — A small-scale, free-speech rally one week after the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, was drowned out by thousands of protesters in Boston on August 19, ending relatively peacefully despite a few arrests. On a hot and muggy Saturday, about 100 attendees at the Boston Free Speech rally were taunted and harassed by scores for holding the rally soon after the white supremacist and Nazi march in Charlottesville. And while the First Amendment-focused event was not meant to celebrate racism or bigotry, some participants — primarily rally ...

Trump called out “anti-police agitators” in Boston — and thanked protesters an hour later

By Tara Golshan As tens of thousands of anti-racism protesters descended on Boston to counter a Free Speech rally that many worried would attract the same white supremacist, alt-right crowd seen in Charlottesville, Virginia, President Donald Trump again chose to respond to “both sides.” First, he chided the “anti-police agitators” among the counterprotesters, picking up on footage of “fuck the police” chants, and a reports of rock and urine throwing. According to Boston Police, the events Saturday were largely peaceful. Among an estimated crowd of 40,000 protesters there were 27 arrests for disorderly conduct and some for altercations with police ...

West Wing lurches into unknown after Bannon’s exit

West Wing lurches into unknown after Bannon’s exit

By mnussbaum@politico.com (Matthew Nussbaum) On the afternoon that President Donald Trump promised "fire and fury" if North Korea launched an act of aggression, chief strategist Steve Bannon sat in his office and schemed about China, fuming about the country's trade practices and looking for retaliation. He seemed unconcerned with the North Korea situation, one person who spoke to him said, dismissing concerns around the nuclear weapon-wielding state as "just a lot of talk." It showed the deep divide between many of Trump's advisers and Bannon, who stayed laser-focused on promises scrawled onto his office wall, which he deemed the "War ...

How “Despacito” became the biggest song of 2017

By Alex Abad-Santos An anatomy of what made “Despacito” the most popular song of the year. On the way home from the beach last weekend, as we got into the car and turned on the radio, I immediately heard the familiar plucks of the cuatro, a steel-strung Puerto Rican guitar, on Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, and Justin Bieber's “Despacito” remix. When the song ended and the station went to commercial, we switched to another station, and within minutes the falling melody of the cuatro came on again. Having just heard the song, we tried another station. And another. And then ...

Anti-racism protesters totally eclipsed Boston’s right-wing Free Speech rally

By Tara Golshan The Boston Free Speech rally, which many feared would draw a violent crowd of white supremacists Saturday, was instead overshadowed by thousands of counter-protesters denouncing bigotry and racism. The dueling demonstrations on Boston Common showed a shocking disparity in size. As Vox's Alex Ward reported from the scene, the Free Speech rally, scheduled to begin at noon, was only permitted for 100 participants. The press was not allowed within a policed perimeter of the Free Speech rally, gathered in by the Parkman Bandstand — a small gazebo in Boston's public park. This is the #BostonFreeSpeech rally. Very ...

MSNBC’s Jim Cavanaugh on Antifa: Not A Bad Label To Be Against Fascism

MSNBC's counter-terrorism expert Jim Cavanaugh opines on the group Antifa during the network's coverage of the Boston protest: Also, look at this, 20,000 people. What a statement for America that right now are all peaceful. Now, there could be a very few black bloc or Antifa people who want to commit violence, but as far as being anti-fascist, all of America was anti-fascist in World War II. Everybody in America was anti-fascist so that's not a bad label to be against fascism or Naziism or neo-Naziism. But it's how you behave out there today. This is so commendable and I ...

“Sexualized fascism”: how the taboo nature of Nazi imagery made the alt-right more powerful

By Tara Isabella Burton From The Night Porter to Nazisploitation, we eroticize the "forbidden" nature of fascist imagery — and make fascists stronger. Last weekend, a group of neo-Nazis marched alongside other white supremacists and far right activists in Charlottesville. The chants and visual tools they used — from swastikas to wooden shields to “blood and soil” chants — revived rhetoric and imagery that many in America believed to be entirely eradicated: so beyond the pale of common morality that no reasonable person could possibly seek to revive it. That belief, and the complacency it engendered, was erroneous. If anything, ...
