Tenn. police are looking for man accused of attacking interracial couple at pub after Sat "White Lives Matter" rally https://t.co/Rr3dwiiF0y — Allegra Kirkland (@allegrakirkland) October 30, 2017 Kudos to Blake Montgomery, at Buzzfeed — “Here’s A Play By Play With What Happened With Those White Nationalists In Tennessee”: White nationalists said they gathered in rural …
Around 6 p.m., some members of the Nationalist Front gathered at the Home Depot in Antioch, 35 miles from Henry Horton, where they bought tiki torches. According to Griffin, the Nationalist Front planned to hold a “vigil” at the Burnette Chapel Church of Christ, though he said they “never planned to do anything with torches.”
In late September, a Sudanese immigrant named Emanuel Samson opened fire on the mostly white congregation of Burnette Chapel, killing one woman and injuring eight others. The Nationalist Front wanted to bring more attention to the shooting, which it said the national media did not pay attention to, as well as to general refugee resettlement in Tennessee. Speakers in Shelbyville spent little time talking about the attack or refugees.
But by 6:30 p.m., the vigil had also been canceled. Griffin said he and other organizers aborted the event because Louisville Anti-Racist Action, an anti-fascist group, tweeted the location of the gathering and called for its followers to show up and protest…
Video from late in the evening appears to show white nationalists from the Traditionalist Worker Party in a fight with an interracial couple they allegedly harassed at Corner Pub in Brentwood, Tennessee, according to local news channel Fox 17. Matthew Heimbach, of the Traditionalist Worker Party, told Mic that the white nationalist in the fight wasn’t a member of the Nationalist Front and that the black man in the couple started the fight.
The white woman in the couple said white nationalists started the argument by telling her to leave her black boyfriend and join them. She and her boyfriend left the restaurant and were followed, they told Fox 17, sparking a confrontation that ended with her being punched in the face by a man wearing all black. White Lives Matter organizers asked attendees to wear either all black or a white shirt with khaki pants.
Despite the seeming disorganization of the day, Griffin tweeted that he and his fellow protesters had succeeded in changing the perception of their movement. He tweeted about the narrative around Shelbyville, Pikeville, and Charlottesville throughout the day and well into the night.
“No shootings. No arrests. No violence. Triggered leftists. Blew up the Charlottesville narrative,” he wrote…
Yeah, as long as they’ve got their high-caliber penis extensions — or a 20-to-2 advantage — they’re a brave, bold band of TRUE REBELS.
