A large group of anti-Trump leftists turned violent against Boston police officers at a pro-Trump “Anti-Democrat Violence” rally in Boston on Sunday. They later burned a U.S. flag and an image of President Donald Trump.

A group of about 50 members of the pro-Trump “Super Happy Fun America” group gathered in front of the Boston Public Library on Sunday to protest “Democrat violence,” according to the Boston Herald.  They were outnumbered nearly three-to-one by anti-Trump counterprotesters who eventually turned violent.

Boston police attempted to keep the groups separated with a metal barricade but the leftists eventually removed the barriers.

As police tried to keep the groups separated, the leftist group apparently attacked the police leading to a short skirmish and the arrest of two people, the Boston newspaper reported.

“This is a peaceful protest against Democrat violence, and they’re proving our point,” event organizer Samson Racioppi of Super Happy Fun America told the Herald reporter. “The violence is across the street.”

“The Trump/Pence regime is a fascist regime that needs to be driven from power,” counterprotester Stan Lawrence of Refuse Fascism told the reporter. “I think the people across the street are one step away from the people who murdered Heather Heyer in Charlottesville.”

Solidarity Against Hate-Boston organized the so-called “Kick Fascists Out of Boston” counterprotest, NBC10 in Boston reported.

“Donald Trump flags held by supporters of the “law and order” touting president clashed with those who want police abolished,” the local NBC affiliate reported. “As both sides marched to the beat of their own drum, it was clear they, like many Americans in these tense times, stand more divided than together.”

Pro-Trump protester John Hugo told WCVB ABC5 reporters, “We’re here to have a peaceful protest against Democrat violence. As you see, the Democrats are here in force … to cause violence and prevent our free speech.”

Police eventually had to escort the pro-Trump activists away from the area for safety reasons.
