Masked Trumpies foiled in effort to annoy large numbers of Storrow Drive motorists

Trump fans and their banner over Storrow Drive

A woman walking her dog along Back Street in the Back Bay this afternoon spotted these two men with bandanas on their faces waltzing away from the Dartmouth Street overpass, where they'd just placed a "Deport Them All" banner over Storrow Drive.

She reports their meticulously lettered banner greeted motorists for no more than three minutes:

A guy walking over the bridge flipped it and I had called the police so when I came back around the second time, a state trooper had pulled over on outbound side to come up and get it

They already tried

And then we fought a war to make them stay, and now we in Massachusetts give them money to force an awful federal government on us.

The Civil War

Louisiana, the biggest welfare state of the 50 states. Alabama, where more than 0 people voted for a pedo. Florida, a daily competition to determine who is the biggest scumbag degenerate.

Places that could all be as foreign to us as Norway or Israel or even Canada, but no, they have to be a part of the United States, even if we were going to torch Atlanta in the process.

War is stupid. Making Confederate states stay in the U.S. was stupider. We give aid to both Israel and Alabama. I would much rather have Israelis pick our President and Congresspeople at this point than Alabamans.

Will, I'm going to respectfully disagree

Freeing the 4 million enslaved people-- over 12% of the US population-- justified the Civil War.

However, once the war was completed, compensating former slaves with property seized from slave owners & traders, directly granting the Black population of slave states their own seats in the House and Senate to be elected by *only* the Black voters of those states, and limiting political power of white voters in slave states until they demonstrated that former slaves were treated as full and equitable citizens in their boundaries, would have changed the southern political power structure to this day.

The problem was less the war, and more the failure to hold the south accountable & assist the slaves after the war.

Wait, America

Fought a war under the guise of freeing oppressed people, then did nothing after combat to ensure their continued freedom? Gee, you don't say.

Helping newly freed slaves and shrugging our shoulders at Southern states peacing out of our country were not mutually exclusive.

Yes, clearly another false-flag operation by antifa

types. I can't wait to tune in to InfoWars for that angle on the story.

Occam: that guy was full of shit.

Counterpoint: the guy in front is built just like our President: Body by Regular Three-Filet-o'-Fish Dinners. Cheap, awful-fitting khakis are another marker. The blue button-down is a departure from canon: should have been an oh-so-white shirt. Antifa protesters tend to be ectomorphs, presumably from their effete vegan diets.

Why do conservatives spend so

By on

Why do conservatives spend so much time in the most liberal parts of this country? Is it because their trailer parks and KKK compounds get boring and the red states have no good jobs, schools, hospitals or cultural institutions? Why isn't Fox News headquartered in West Virginia? Because deep down these white supremacist Trump turds know that everything run by conservatives is shit.

Why do people argue the same points over and over again

about bikes and cars? The attention!!!! Plus it's a badge of honor with some of these cretins that they slither into a supposed "liberal" town like Boston and spread their hateful nonsense.

And as far as this being a "liberal" part of the country, how many times has your black ass had to wait in the cold to be buzzed into a store on Newbury Street?

To be fair, Boston on balance is clearly more liberal

than many parts of the country, but it's equally clear that we have a stubborn streak of naked, odious racism here, largely along lines of socioeconomic class and education. Adam Jones, anyone?

Even so, part of the genius of "Get Out" (which I think deserves the Best Picture Oscar) was how Peele hilariously and trenchantly held up cliches about prosperous white liberals' supposed racial sensitivity and then gutted them. It was instructive to see it at the Boston Common theater, and witness how different parts of the audience howled in laughter or squirmed in silence at the same jokes.

Right?

Seeing "Get Out" was definitely enhanced by the presence of the extra Saturday night BPD detail cops at the Common theater. You know, in case the natives get a little restless....?

I love how kids from the way are going to have to shag their asses down to the Common if they want to see "Black Panther" when any white kid that wants to see the latest Chris Evans Cap flick can walk to their local theater to see it. Without the detail cops.

I caught an early weekend show, 10am or noon,

as I recall: no detail cops. Bad behavior in theaters -- people getting up and down all through the movie, incessant yacking or bright-light texting on mobile phones, talking all the way through like they're in their own living rooms -- pushes me to wait for many films on Amazon or Netflix that I'm otherwise anxious to see. As a result, I've been to very few evening showings of a first-run Hollywood film in the theater for years. I'd kill for this.

I still get out to see indie, classic, and foreign films at the art houses, Brattle, Harvard Film Archive, MFA and the like: the audiences generally sit still, stay off their phones, and don't speak. In your experience, does the detail-cop thing only appear for movies that are tilted to PoC audiences?

No, it's pretty much a Bston Common theater thing...

Friday and Saturday nights. There have been as many as six in my experience.

They should really be at the Somerville Theater. Easily the worst place in town to see a movie that constantly gets interrupted by hipster idiots looking at their Snapthingie.

Horrid audience behavior

By on

This horrid audience behavior is not limited to hipsters in Somerville or rowdy kids (of any color) on a weekend night at the Common cinema. As an inveterate concertgoer I have noticed in the past 10 years or so the behavior of audiences at live shows has become intolerable. People show up as much as an hour into the performance and act like it's no big deal. Or they leave an hour before it ends. People constantly get up and leave their seats and come back. Exactly where are all these people going? They can't all be going to the bathroom (or the bar) all the time. People are checking their phones throughout the performance. They act like the artist isn't even there. I don't understand how people can spend upwards of $300 for a ticket for an artist or band they presumably like, and then not care that they are there. Exactly when and how and why did this behavior start? There must be whole books written about it.

Because not everyone in Massachusetts is as liberal as you think. Some of your neighbors have differing viewpoints from you.

I zoomed in to the max, but no skull. It wouldn't have surprised me; the racists have a deep-seated (and totally straight and manly) love for The Punisher.

The Netflix series did a pretty good job of addressing that by including characters who misinterpreted what the Punisher stood for and showed how disturbed and misguided they were.

for these cowards counter-protesting at the Women's Rally in Cambridge tomorrow. If you see them, point them out to the police. Note the striped scarf on the flabby fellow in front, and his plain ball cap. It's hard to find pants that fit that badly. I'll be looking for them.

Not if "counter protest"

Means standing there with a sign.

However, the usual "counter protest" methods of these vile shitwads typically involves far more than that - like carrying bats and swinging them at the heads of women they don't agree with, pouring tiki oil on ministers and threatening to burn them to death, circling a synagogue and threatening to burn everyone in it to death, driving cars into crowds.

"Brave" stuff like that.

By on

They're covered because the left can't handle a different opinion without a tantrum. Trump didn't win Massachusetts, but he did win some towns and got significant votes in some cities, even Lowell, and that's with a solid democratic core. Clearly this site leans left, heck it's free-falling, but it's still a good way to get a different opinion. You can't let immigration violations stay and continue chain migration, it just encourages more. As you can see, the problems been ignored until it's exploded to affect millions of people. Deporting them all sends a clear message, and they all knew that was likely, unless you believe in everyone's doing it, it must be ok. One solution might be to give them 90 days to find a country willing to take them, otherwise send them back.

Yeeeah, that's it: "liberal tantrums". It's not that

these comical skulkers are sniveling cowards so bereft of courage they have to hide their faces when they're hanging a sign to air out their bigotry. Gotta watch out for the gangs of armed liberal thugs patrolling our skybridges, ready to descend with violent fury on any Trumpkin who dares utter an opinion differing from left-wing orthodoxy!

It *couldn't* be that they're afraid of being shunned by their neighbors and colleagues when it's revealed that they're ugly xenophobes and racists, hence the Klannish masks.
