Conservative activists are defending their "Free Speech Rally" in Boston on Saturday, saying it was organized to simply defend the freedom of speech and that the rally had been planned months in advance, despite it falling a week after a Virginia demonstration of white nationalists turned deadly. Organizers of the "Free Speech Rally" have publicly distanced themselves from the neo-Nazis and white supremacists who fomented violence in Charlottesville on Aug. 12.
