Note: Looks like maybe another hundred showed up.
What a difference a few years makes. Compare the 100 or so Trumpists who demanded the right to breathe on other people on Beacon Street outside the State House this afternoon, as photographed by Frog Lane Harpy. with the tens of thousands who protested him on Beacon Street in 2017.
The Trumpies arrived in a convoy of motorcycles and pickups and at least one larger truck, whose driver seemed to be trying to compensate for something (and whose inspection sticker, as well as the one on the pickup behind him, did not appear to indicate Massachusetts residency):
Afterwards, the protesters did not try to storm the State House to intimidate legislators with their big ol' assault weapons, since those are illegal here, unlike in other states we could mention.
During speechifyin' on the steps of the State House, one speaker said coronavirus is a hoax aimed at turning us into, if not gay frogs, then socialists.
The Globe reports that one of the organizing groups was the same group that ran last year's anti-gay march through the Back Bay and downtown.
