White supremacists’ masked march in Boston condemned: ‘Your hatred is as cowardly as it is disgusting’

Several dozen white supremacists marched through the streets of Boston on Saturday.

The men, some of whom carried police shields and flags, were part of the white supremacist group Patriot Front, CBS Boston Reports. At one point, they boarded a subway train at a downtown station.

The march drew condemnation from Boston Mayor Michelle Wu.

“To the white supremacists who ran downtown today: When we march, we don’t hide our faces,” Wu tweeted. “Your hate is as cowardly as it is repugnant, and it goes against everything what Boston stands for.”

No arrests were reported.

Last month, a group of 31 men suspected of being members of the Patriot Front were arrested near a Pride event in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. The men were found inside a U-Haul truck which contained shields and at least one smoke grenade. The police think they were planning a riot.

The Southern Poverty Law Center describes the Patriot Front as a “white nationalist hate group.”
