Nazis show up at South Boston parade

Sarah Z spotted Nazis on West Broadway, goes "WTF."
Why, yes, they have appropriated the Celtic Cross as a symbol; but if you need more proof, that weird scribble on the sign is their more "official" logo. Background on local Nazis.
Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!

Nazis Fuck Off.
Maybe you should go have a
Maybe you should go have a chat with their parents
Funny...I wouldn't have guessed them for enthusiastic maskers. If only masks would stop hate-spread. Unless they are shy and aren't proud to let people know their beliefs??!
Definitely not, because, you know...consequences.
Its fighting time
The fighting Irish kicked the Klans ass when they came to South Bend its time for fighting Irish from Southie to kick the neo-nazis ass.
It’s been done.
The Klan most definitely showed up in Southie during busing. The locals were not very welcoming, not because of the Klan’s racism though, it was the anti-Catholicism that did it.
When the KKK showed up in Southie during busing,
When the KKK showed up in Southie during busing, and the locals weren't very welcoming to them, it was, in a way, due to the KKK's bigotry--against Catholics. The KKK has a long, long history of being racist towards all kinds of people--i. e. blacks, Catholics, Jews---hell, you name it.
I wonder if these young Irish - American Nazis know what side the real Ireland fought on against the real Nazis?
Ireland was neutral but many Irish joined the British
These morons probably couldn't find Germany on a map, or Ireland.
Neutral (Sort of)
Ireland tacitly gave an air corridor to the English near Derry over Donegal.
German pilots who crashed in Ireland were put into jail. (Germany had "accidently" bombed Dublin in 1940).
The Irish government locked up every IRA member that they could charge for the war to keep them from causing trouble in England.
Allied pilots who crashed somehow got dropped at a small border crossing between Fermanagh and Leitrim.
Ireland also provided the weather reports for DDay too.
Thank you, Still & Costello
I appreciate the history corrections
For pathetic trolls who stomp & scream about masks these cowards really are afraid to go out in public without them. Lol.
I guarantee you these people are outside trouble makers who have nothing to do with South Boston or Boston in general. They should mind their own business.
There are absolutely locals in NSC.
Italians, Slavs, English or god forbid Germans? One Boston, under Ireland, with Liberty and Justice only if you are of the green?
While recognizing their danger when they organize and reinforce their beliefs I can not but feel sad for people whose souls are eaten away everyday with rage.
Would they know the difference?
The people who use "Irish pride" as a cover for their white supremacy (well, this particular group is hardly covering it...) often use "Irish" as a synonym for "white." I've worked in communities where racist white/Irish-identifying people will describe strangers visually as "Irish" when they know nothing of their heritage. This happened so many times at one school where I worked, where parents would be talking about how there were four "Irish" boys in the class and they're talking about the short one with blonde hair (who I happen to know is Jewish and whose last name is Levine, but sure).
These are of course people who have not been to Ireland nor have their parents, and they know nothing about Ireland. They insist though that "wanting to be around mostly Irish people" is exactly the same as POC and immigrants flocking together to have people who understand their culture and understand being a marginalized person.
If taken literally, "Keep Boston Irish" is hilarious when you consider that it certainly wasn't Irish to start with, but if it means white, well...it's the perfect slogan for racists who are too cowardly to say the quiet part out loud.
What’s hilarious is that when
What’s hilarious is that when the Irish people got here, the Protestant establishment HATED them. They were lower class, dirty Catholics. Remember all those “No Irish Need Apply” signs?
Oh, they know all about that
and they'll be the first to bring it up if anyone ever talks about systemic racism etc being a problem. But don't ask them to explain why the Irish stopped being treated as second-class citizens and what that might have had to do with looking for allies against Black people...
They'll talk about how they were victims of racism too. I've had several "Irish are minorities" folks from Dorchester and Southie tell me about how there was some Italian-American teacher or coach or something at B.C. High who only picked Italian kids for his whatever, and this is an example of discrimination against Irish Americans.
Never mind that 1) you can point to literally one instance of this during your/your parents' lifetime 2) doesn't choosing only Italian-American white children also marginalize, I don't know, groups of people other than Irish-American white children? And if B.C. High was just that white whenever this urban legend purportedly happened...well...
"systemic racism" against the
"systemic racism" against the Irish would mean you gave a math test to both Irish and Italian kids, and the Irish kids scored lower than the Italian kids, so you accuse the testing strategy of being racist.
That's how how the term "systemic racism" is being used today. It's when you infer racism based on outcomes, not on intent.
Where's Jake and Elwood
When you need them?
I hate all Nazis.....period.
I hate all Nazis....period! Anybody with even a modicum of common decency would.
Or Nazis in Massachusetts?
Sure, a lot of them are home grown but if you followed them back to their vehicles I'm betting that it is the same multi-state group going to various events so that they look like they have numbers.
I was thinking along the same
I was thinking along the same lines myself. Some problems are best solved with a couple of Catholic musicians and a '74 Dodge, not a 311 complaint.
Jake and Elwood arrived at
Jake and Elwood arrived at City Hall to pay the church's tax bill only to discover they are SOL because City Hall was closed for Evacuation Day.
So, the church was foreclosed on. A developer bought the property and released a plan to convert the space into you-know-what.
I wish them nothing but the worst
There is nothing tolerable about Nazis or Nazism. There is no place in a civil society for those who find righteousness in and profess a desire to continue the genocide and destruction that Adolf Hitler started. And that is who these people are and what they believe in.
They are looking WAY too
They are looking WAY too comfortable . I’m glad I didn’t go this year because I would have acted a fool.
Fuck these idiots
That is all
Don't you think it's time we stopped calling these goofballs "Nazis"? It only assigns power to them. There have not been any actual Nazis on this planet since the last one that participated in Hitler's Third Reich finally dropped dead, which was probably within recent memory, and they were very, very old. These current clowns are just babies playing dress up. Granted it's very dangerous dress up, and they deserve to be stomped out, but they are not "Nazis". People go around calling themselves Knights Templar and Rosicrucians too, but this isn't the 12th Century when there actually were such people.
You might be underestimating them
While we can never let them succeed, I do believe they will continue to try to create a critical mass of hate filled white men willing to take up arms against those they perceive as enemies of themselves and the "white race." These people are dangerous and capable of violence, to consider them as anything less than capable is to look the other way until they start acting out their hate filled beliefs.
From the ADL:
If the jackboot fits…
This argument is the old “it’s not a Q-Tip, it’s a cotton swab” pedantry of white supremacist taxonomy.
What I love about these masked cowards
is the fact that they're usually just a bunch of racist cosplayers that would shit themselves in actual combat.
What I hate about these masked cowards
is the fact that other people shouldn't have to be willing and able to throw down in "actual combat" to not have to put up with these Celtic Nazis' bullshit.
Thanks for covering this, Adam
It didn't seem to make it into the coverage of the Globe or the TV news stations, possibly because their "Parade Enjoyed By All" stories were largely pre-written
Who needs a porta potty
... when a supersoaker will do?
My take is that the good people of South Boston had no idea what this group actually represented otherwise there would have been comhrac going on.
Could very well be, but one must not forget that
the haters down in Southie don't want the KKK or any other people down there either, for obvious reasons.
