Two Arrested Outside Boston Holocaust Gathering; Crowd Protests White Supremacists' Presence
Tampa Bay Online ^ | May 9th, 2005 | Brooke Donald Associated Press Writer

BOSTON (AP) - White supremacists clashed with an angry crowd outside Faneuil Hall, where Holocaust survivors and their families were commemorating the liberation of Nazi concentration camps.

Two people were arrested during Sunday's confrontation, officer John Boyle said. Sunday was the 60th anniversary of the end of the Allied victory over Nazi Germany.

Inside the historic meeting house, Holocaust survivors, their children and grandchildren lit white candles to commemorate the estimated 6 million Jews killed by the Nazis. Germany's consul-general to New England, Wolfgang Vorwerk, spoke of his country's role.

Outside, 10 to 15 members of the Arkansas-based group White Revolution were escorted by officers to a designated protest area across the street. The officers, many in riot gear, formed a barricade between the protesters and about 100 people who angrily shouted at them to leave Boston.

Two people were charged with disturbing the peace after a scuffle outside the protest area. Police said Shireen Chambers, 36, of Boston, who is white, struck a black man, Jerome Higins, 25, of Everett, and he retaliated by spitting in her face and hitting her with a sign. Boyle said at least one officer was injured while arresting Chambers, who yelled racist epithets as she was dragged away.

Gov. Mitt Romney, who attended the Faneuil Hall event, said he was disgusted by the presence of the supremacists.

"Today of all days, to have white supremacists come here from Arkansas, is most disappointing," he said. "I wish they'd go back home where the came from and bury themselves under the rocks that they crawled out from."

The actions of an out of town Arkansas white supremacist thugs invading a Boston memorial for Jewish victims of the Nazi Holocaust is beyond despicable. Gov. Rommney is correct in his statement.

Freedom to speak.

Freedom to be a complete idiot and let everyone know about it.

I love America.

White supremacists have Internet ties with Islamic terrorist and therefore should be viewed by Homeland Security as domestic terrorist threats.

I live in the Boston area and just caught a bit of this info on the news earlier today.

What the hell were these idiots doing there? Did they travel all the way to Boston for this? Are they Holocaust deniers.

Morons!

They are indeed Holocaust deniers, the worst type of nazi filth, with a long list of those whom they hate.

On their homepage (very little functions) they are endorsed by the 'American Nazi Party', 'Aryan Nations', 'Skinheads', the KKK ('Order of White Knights'), among other pro-segrigationist & supremacist, terrorist hate groups.

Are are some 'endorsements':

I am not sure how long these creeps have been in the greater Boston area or if any from the same group are in the greater NYC area?

Of course they're the lowest filth. However, even the lowest filth should be allowed to say what exactly what they wish.

And that is protected by the Constitution.

Clinton's was a president that was rather poor, but the building looks decent enough.

Staged or not, there were Holocaust survivors and their families at this memorial. The thugs in question have absolutely no morals whatsoever, but then again what else should be expected from 'neo-nazis'?

They imported themselves to this Shoah memorial event to incite violence. That's their game plan to provoke street fights.

If this element had their way the Constitution would be torn up just as the Nazis in German did once in total control.

Going to Boston or any place to deliberately incite violence as this outfit clearly did should be considered a crime and since the leaders of this white supremacist hate group originated in Arkansas (Clinton's home state), and then crossed a number of state lines to reach the Commonwealth of Mass, the Feds should also be investigating these neo-nazis, if they aren't already.
