Some of the most illuminating commentary on the day came from antifa itself, which was far more honest than the media. Joshua Caplan collected some choice tweets in which @AntifaBoston chortled over getting the “idiots Democrats” to side with them and bragging about media support.
The establishment has got its narrative and it’s sticking to it. I guess it is hate speech to frame the story with the drama and victims prominent in the story when the wrong people are being persecuted.
If you have the time, check out the @BostonAntifa Twitter feed. It leaves no doubt about how far left this violent mob is.

Boston police were even attacked with bottles of urine and tweeted out a plea for “individuals” to stop it.
#BPD is asking individuals to refrain from throwing urine, bottles and other harmful projectiles at our officers.
