Protesters wearing camouflage and Make America Great Again hats clashed with counterprotesters clad in black and chanting anti-fascist slogans on Boston Common Saturday afternoon, at a rally that resulted in heated words and a few arrests but no serious violence.
“Commie scum!’’ shouted rallygoers, who numbered about 100, and who were separated from about 1,000 counterprotesters by police, who formed barricades with their bodies and bicycles.
“No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA!’’ the counterprotesters returned.
