The protest against the Boston Free Speech Rally described by an on the spot observer who went there incognito.

The massive protest against the Free Speech Rally on the Boston Common went off near to what I had expected. I went as an observer, with the intention to only watch and report on what happened, while not identifying myself, debating anyone, or talking to the press.

Since my Republican job description includes the Massachusetts Republican National Committee Delegation and Republican State Committee, it was prudent to go incognito, sunglasses and all. Had the assembled mob recognized this sometime Trump campaign spokesman from TV it could have been — nay, would have been — exceedingly dangerous, to say the least.
