Swampscott rallies have included KKK robe, man in blackface, Confederate flag

Source: Boston.com

Over the past few months, dueling protests with supporters of President Donald Trump across the street from Black Lives Matter supporters have taken place in Swampscott every Thursday morning, and some have included racist symbols and explicit language.

Around two weeks ago, a man wore a white Ku Klux Klan robe and held a “KKK for Dianna” sign; last week, a man in blackface held what appears to be a KFC bucket and a sign that read, “[N-word] for Dianna,” using a version of the racist slur.

Both signs were in reference to Dianna Ploss, a New Hampshire conservative talk radio personality fired in July from hosting her show on WSMN 1590 after shouting at landscapers in Nashua to speak English. Ploss has helped to organize multiple pro-Trump rallies throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire, her professional Facebook page shows, which includes live-recorded videos of the events.

The Trump side has also included the flying of a Confederate flag. Ploss, using a microphone, also chants “Burn, Loot, Murder,” in reference to the Black Lives Matter supporters.

3. I live in MA - anyplace with access to Hannity, Limbaugh...

Poison from right wing media radicalizes people in all 50 states.

Anybody on a steady diet of Fox News will become an angry, hateful bigot. Democrats must do something to squelch the lies, disinformation and propaganda coming from these people and organizations.
