‘It’s Not A Pandemic!’: Protesters Chant ‘It’s A Hoax’ And ‘Make America Great Again’ In Boston





Hundreds of protesters gathered at the Massachusetts State House in Boston on Monday to demonstrate against the closures ordered by Gov. Charlie Baker (R-MA) to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.

The demonstrators called for nonessential businesses to reopen and designated Gov. Baker’s stay-at-home order as unconstitutional.



The crowds were seen carrying signs saying “End shutdown” and “Tyranny is not leadership,” according to CBS Boston and ABC affiliate WCVB5. Some protesters in the crowd wore masks, while others did not.

Matt Stout, state house reporter for the Boston Globe, documented the protest from inside the capitol building.

He reported protesters yelling “this is communism” and “we don’t want your shutdown anymore.”

“It’s not a pandemic!” a speaker falsely claimed to the crowd gathered below. “The reason why they’re doing this … to turn the United States of America into the United Socialist States of America.”

He said the crowd began to chant “It’s a hoax! It’s a hoax!” and later chanted “It’s time to make America great again.”
