Apparently the alt-right and other fascist sympathizers are going to attempt a Berkeley-esque “Free Speech” rally here in Boston on May 13. According to the brave patriots of 4chan, they basically want an anti-antifa rally to get together and LARP around as the “Based Stickman” and maybe get to meet some of us face to face for a street fight.
A Facebook event page has been created for the rally:
This event page is listed as being hosted by “Boston Free Speech”, however previously when we first saw the original posting of the event page it was hosted by someone named Matthew Silva from Rhode Island. It’s pretty safe to say this person is the one behind the “Boston Free Speech” page & event.
The language in the posts and threads about this rally suggests that their entire plan is in them hoping that antifa will show up to fight them, so their small group doesn’t end up looking stupid in their stickman gear. We certainly have the upper hand in how this supposed rally goes down and how it is perceived, if it even happens at all.
Just take a look at some of the people that want to instigate violence with Boston area leftists by looking at who are listed as going on the public Facebook event page: (these people really have zero concept of internet security culture)
Based Stickman wannabe and Three Percenter Rawn Strout here from Maine seems intent on partaking in violence on May 13 in Boston, someone to keep an eye on.
So yeah, this is a thing that might be happening? Please plan accordingly with your affinity groups if you intend on opposing this rally in any way and be safe.
And to those who plan on joining this “Free Speech Rally”, just remember:
