Remember last year when this group showed up along the parade route? Well, local elected officials, along with the MBTA, will be working together to ensure that hate groups don’t show up for the 2023 St. Patrick’s Day Parade by preventing extremists from using public assets to spread racist propaganda.
Last year, a group of about 15-20 people wearing neo-Nazi symbols and holding a sign that read, “Keep Boston Irish” were spotted on West Broadway during the parade. Needless to say, parade-goers were outraged and took to social media to call attention to their presence.
The Dropkick Murphy’s were also less than pleased with the neo-Nazi group for using their song, “the Boys are Back” in parade day video. They took to social media calling them “losers” and threatened to “smash” them.
This exchange almost caused an old-fashioned rumble at M Street Park later on in March of last year.
Here’s a copy of the letter by elected officials to the MBTA police:
