“Super Happy Fun America” Boston protest turns violent when Antifa arrives, attacks peaceful protesters

Share:

BOSTON, MA – A protest, organized by the group “Super Happy Fun America,” was interrupted at noon on November 7th by members of Antifa.

Instead of just allowing people to peacefully protest, as they claim they demand, they instead tried to drown out the crowd and began physical confrontations. The confrontation prompted the Boston Police Department to show up in riot gear.

The group, “Super Happy Fun America,” organized the event at the Boston Common to allow people to peacefully demonstrate against the COVID mask and vaccine requirements.

What should have been nothing but a peaceful event turned violent when members of Antifa decided to show up.

Antifa members, some belonging to a local outfit named “Green Monster Antifa,” decided that their opinions were the only ones that needed to be heard and decided to entice like-minded individuals to descend upon the Boston Common in the hopes of shutting down those who dare have a different opinion.

In Antifa’s invitation to deprive others of free speech, the Twitter post said:

“Super Happy Fun America is planning their return to Boston at noon on Sunday, November 7, with a new COVID-denier group called CORR. Let’s make sure they know where Boston stands..”

Members of the protest group tried to speak to those in attendance, only to be drowned out by loud music and other noise from the Antifa members.

Several of these Antifa members, besides being clad in all black clothing and face masks to cover their identity, also carried red flags that read “Death to Fascism” along with the communist symbol of a hammer and sickle.

One wonders if Antifa has ever looked up the definition of fascism in the dictionary. If they had, maybe they would learn that their tactics are, at least in part, the exact definition. As defined by Merriam-Webster, fascism is:

“[A] political philosophy, movement, or regime…that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.”

Regardless if members of Antifa have or have not studied the word, this group of so-called fascist fighters approached the protesters. People in the protest group can be heard yelling that they will not stand down.

One can even be heard shouting:

“We are not going to be intimidated.”

Of course shortly afterward, fights began breaking out when Antifa was not getting the desired result of Super Happy Fun America giving up and leaving.

In a video posted to Twitter by NBC reporter Monica Madeja, you can see as protesters are standing behind a metal fence as members dressed in black, appearing to be Antifa, come over the fence and begin physically attacking the protesters.

Photographs were taken of the scene show at least one protester getting sprayed with some type of apparent chemical agent as others are physically fighting each other.

At least one person was injured in some way because medical personnel was on the scene treating them.

Thankfully, there were not any reports of any serious injuries or property damage that occurred as a result of the clash between the peaceful protesters and that of Antifa. That could be because Boston Police showed up to deal with the situation in full riot gear.

Boston Police Officer Stephen McNulty spoke to Fox News about the incident. While there were no reports of any major incidents, there were at least two arrests. He said:

“[T]wo arrested after opposing sides clashed at today’s scheduled event and planned counter-protest on the Boston Common. BPD assets included officers in protective equipment.”

Report: Tourists “afraid” to visit Portland due to Antifa’s presence and continued violence

PORTLAND, OR- In the last year, Portland has made its way to the end of the list of cities where tourists and conventioneers want to spend money and time. 

 

According to several reports, the city is leaderless with police officers fleeing, whether it be early retirement or moving to another state. Add Antifa’s heavy presence on top of that, even people in nearby towns are avoiding the once vibrant city.

The city’s “Travel Portland” tourism CEO, Jeff Miller, said that no one wants to visit the socialist utopia the leftists have molded. Miller told the commissioners:

“Portland has declined to the lowest levels of being a likely destination for delegates to attend a conference.”

Miller then discussed the few things causing the problem, saying:

“Portland-specific issues that are related to civil unrest and public safety concerns have exacerbated the negative occurrences of declining attendance and group cancellations.”

Miller told Mayor Ted Wheeler and the city council:

“Continued attacks and breaking glass on buildings throughout the city, but especially downtown, continued to affect this hard to overcome sentiment. Our central city occupancy in September lags every competitive city we tracked.”

Reportedly, the only worse city was Minneapolis, which was also set on fire by Antifa and were police are disrespected and hated as well as the Left having a firm hold on the criminal justice system. 

 

During a Zoom meeting, city commissioner Mingus Mapps, the commission’s travel liaison, told his fellow commissioners that things are very, very bad. He added:

“Here’s the problem. Around the world, too many people associate Portland with homelessness and homicide. Today, a significant chunk of humanity is afraid of spending time and money in our city.”

It seems that people are not into crime-friendly places where someone could be fatally shot at while hanging out at a club downtown, be clubbed on a downtown street, be called a fascist by the club-wielding mob, or where, for political reasons, police won’t be able to find a body when it goes missing or arrest someone for a murder.

Stepping around human feces and tents is also a turn off for many travelers. There have been expansions in the “homeless” camps around the city, which see a higher than normal use and sale of illegal narcotics.

And, instead of telling people to drive their cars or RV’s away, the city assumes responsibility for these individuals, using more and more of taxpayers money to put them in hotels or build them a condo.

As of recent, Mayor and Police Commissioner Ted Wheeler, who pushed to defund the police after being threatened by Antifa, just announced that the city needs more cops.

He is allegedly begging retired officers to come back by offering them more money and is planning to spend even more money to reimagine policing.

Mapps told Travel Portland:

“I will tell you the convention business in Portland for the next five years is dead.”

 

The year before the pandemic, the Oregon Convention Center hosted 50 conventions, attended by more than 145,000 people and hotels across the city hosted another 301 large meetings attended by more than 174,000 people. 

Only 33 conventions have been booked for 2022 so far, while 37 are scheduled for 2023. Individual hotels have scheduled just 93 meetings for 2022 and 36 for 2023. Few planners have scheduled events further in the future, with only 15 conventions and five group meetings in the books for 2024. 

According to Travel Portland, the size of the groups booking events has been down anywhere from 35 percent to 65 percent. Mapps and James Jessie, Travel Portland’s chief sales officer, pointed to public safety issues and Portland’s reputation as the primary factor in the slow rebound.

Editor note: In 2020, we saw a nationwide push to “defund the police”.  While we all stood here shaking our heads wondering if these people were serious… they cut billions of dollars in funding for police officers.  And as a result, crime has skyrocketed – all while the same politicians who said “you don’t need guns, the government will protect you” continued their attacks on both our police officers and our Second Amendment rights.

And that’s exactly why we’re launching this national crowdfunding campaign as part of our efforts to help “re-fund the police”.
