It’s going down at 12:30pm at M Street Park. “No books, no friends. I offer you out. Old school Southie style. Meet me at the park” challenge issued by the Dropkick Murphys to a group of Nazis. The beef started when a neo-Nazi group, NS131 used the Dropkick Murphy’s song, “The Boys are Back” in a St. Patrick’s parade day video.

It’s unclear from the tweets if NS 131 will show up themselves or if it’s just the supporters of the neo-Nazis that plan to fight. From this back and forth on twitter, the following flyer began circulating on social media:
As insane as all of this sounds – literally right out of movie – take your pick, West Side Story, The Outsiders, Anchor Man – there is potential for trouble on Saturday afternoon at M Street Park so steer clear. BPD has been alerted so there will be police presence.
We’re hoping this will all end before it begins.
