The most recent was this past weekend in Shelbyville and Murfreesboro.

The media of course vilified those who organized it as evil white supremacists. Of course the fine print had to be read to discover that the only one that earned being arrested was a counter protester.

Nothing was mentioned about our “friends” Redneck Revolt who organized an effort to show up and confront the group that organized the protest.

It’s the same “free speech” activists that really mean speech that they approve of.

Of course liberal causes protests get sympathetic coverage. The rally to protest immigration policy get’s lots of coverage and no critical questions or comments.
