    BOSTON (AP) ” Thousands of demonstrators chanting anti-Nazi slogans converged Saturday on downtown Boston in a boisterous repudiation of white nationalism, dwarfing a small group of conservatives who cut short their planned “free speech rally” a week after a gathering of hate groups led to bloodshed in Virginia.

    All good, good, good. What is it all about anyway? The rise of a nascent Nazi Party and KKK, stopped by good folks. However nobody really heard an argument (be it right or wrong). My guess is that the discontent is still there and like a beast it is self aware – with or without trump at it’s head. It knows the media corporate elites and leftists are the enemy.
