Boston was the birthplace of peaceful political protest in this country, so it was only fitting today that hundreds of people showed up at the Statehouse today to demand that Charlie Baker end the ridiculous lockdown and the continued restrictions on our freedoms.

The longer this goes the more people wake up and leave Team Lockdown, since the lockdowns have been a spectacular and deadly failure. By focusing on restricting rights of the healthy instead of protecting the health of the most vulnerable, we have seen deadly outbreaks at nursing homes while the government wastes their time and energy forcing people to wear masks. An estimated 86% of child abuse is not being reported since schools are closed and DCF cannot do home visits. Massive outbreaks have occurred at places like the Worcester Walmart, as we send crowds of people to a small amount of corporate owned businesses. Our First and Second Amendment rights no longer exist, and those who choose to exercise them are fined or arrested.
If you support child abuse, policies that kill old people, and the restriction of civil liberties then I have some bad news for you – you’re not the good guy here.
But the people who cast judgment on folks who attended the protest today do so because they believe they are smarter and more enlightened. One of these people is Boston Globe Bruins columnist Kevin Paul Dupont, who never misses an opportunity to write passive-aggressive columns designed to make Trump supporters look like mindless rubes.

I’ve never seen this man without shoes on, but I think there’s a very realistic shot he has hoofed feet. He just has that Narnia look to him.
Since Dupont works for the Globe he is required to hold his nose and look down upon former WEEI radio hosts Kirk Minihane, Gerry Callahan, and Alex Reimer worked there, because they criticized his newspaper for being a cesspool of sexual harassment and fake news from pathological liars like Kevin Cullen.

Here was his take on the protest.
No big deal. Just a well known writer for the biggest newspaper in New England wishing death upon a crowd of peaceful protesters. Good thing he didn’t inspire other nutjobs to reply to his tweets with more specific death threats.
These people are sick, demented, and evil, and yet they think they have the moral high ground. In Kerry Sweet’s twisted line of thinking he was able to justify this tweet by telling himself that the people who attended this peaceful protest are all trying to kill old people. Therefore it’s OK to murder them. He believes they are dumber than he is, and therefore lesser. This is what the modern day left thinks of everyone who doesn’t agree with them.
Kerry Sweet is from Merrimack NH, and according to his LinkedIn he works as “executive team leader of asset protection” at Target. In other words, he’s gainfully employed at one of the billion dollar corporations that has benefitted from the lockdown while the small business owners protesting today lose everything. He has a long and storied career as the guy who makes sure kids don’t steal stuff at chain stores.
Note to people like Kerry – if you insist upon threatening to kill peaceful protesters, you should probably avoid putting your phone number on your resume which is attached to your LinkedIn account.
Of course he blamed his death threat on sarcasm.
Annoyed at the responses. Obviously it was sarcasm… just can't believe how many people are ok with what happened today.

Don’t you dumb protesters know what sarcasm is? And instead of apologizing for being horrible Kerry Sweet went right back to blaming the protesters for “what happened today.” Because people like him are always morally right in their minds.
So many people have sacrificed so much by staying home and trying to make this go way. And then you have these A Holes spreading the virus because they want to go to the mall.

The Dupont tweet remained up for a while before he gutlessly took it down and put this up:
What a cowardly hack. You said something dumb, so just own it and move on. But he can’t because Globe employees are incapable of ever admitting they were wrong. Just ask Kevin Cullen and Shirley Leung. Instead they turn it around on the dumb readers who were too ignorant to realize that he was referring to the protesters as the hornets. Which makes no sense at all because they were already there, so why would he say they should be released? Released from what?
“Many, if not most interpreted the tweet otherwise.”
See? It was your fault. You’re too stupid to understand the tweet because you don’t use words like “wherein” and “hive-like.”
Now imagine if he had tweeted the same thing about the Women’s March or the protest of imaginary Nazis three years ago. He’d be fired in two seconds, but for threatening to kill THESE protesters he won’t even be spoken to. This is the mainstream media after all, where blue checkmarks are required to lick each other’s balls about their “professionalism.”
Few carry themselves with the level of professionalism Kevin does, yet still maintain an air of joy & sense of humor.
Congrats on 45 years in the biz & thanks for being such an authentic & compelling guest on my show. https://t.co/AXHr7X9a6m

He still has tweets up responding to people who responded to his tweet, mocking the people he wants to kill with hornets.
Imagine being so out of touch with the common man that you believed these people were fighting for their right to party? The only way you could truly believe that is if you were collecting a six figure salary to put out drivel about women’s soccer that nobody will read:

Hey Kevin, remember when you called Tim Thomas “immature and unprofessional” because he wouldn’t go to the White House?

What do you call wishing death on groups of peaceful protesters?
People like Dupont have a superiority complex that only gets amplified at work and at home because they are surrounded by people who think the same way they do. They’ve never met anyone who wants the lockdown to end, nevermind someone who voted for Donald Trump. And instead of attempting to understand where these people are coming from, people like him use their platforms to mock and even wish death upon those who have alternative viewpoints.
