    Any reason why you decided to use "Boston march against alt-right rally draws thousands" as opposed to "Boston march against right-wing rally draws thousands"? (additional archive to show the "right-wing" title, and archive of this post to demonstrate editorial bias")

    Tens of thousands of anti-racism protesters have opposed the "Free Speech" rally in the US city of Boston that featured right-wing speakers.

    The rally on Boston Common, which attracted only a small crowd, disbanded early and the participants were escorted out by police.

    The organisers had said they would not give a platform to racism or bigotry.


    Meanwhile the organisers of the rally said that "misinformation in the media" was "likening our organisation to those that ran the Charlottesville rally".

    "While we maintain that every individual is entitled to their freedom of speech and defend that basic human right, we will not be offering our platform to racism or bigotry," the group wrote on a Facebook page dedicated to the event. "We denounce the politics of supremacy and violence."

    That is from the BBC article.

    Is Assange that correct when he stated "#Boston: 20k protest against "free speech" today. GOP controls gov+congress+supreme+cops. Give them the only thing you have left? Smart."? https://twitter.com/JulianAssange/status/898996827822981123
