[Ed. – I’m not sure the progressive left understands that Americans just can’t work up a good fear-shiver, when the scourge of white nationalism is 30 dolts who end up canceling their follow-on plans because they’re enormously outnumbered and alarmed for their own safety. To date, the tiki-torchers in Charlottesville have been the only ones who could gin up more than 3 or 4 dozen — and they had to import most of theirs from out of town. The white-nationalist scare has been a big bust everywhere else.]
Law enforcement announced plans to remove barriers from the downtown square after white nationalists called off a planned White Lives Matter Rally there. Counterprotesters, who had gathered across the city, ended their events as the rally petered out.
White nationalists were overwhelmingly outnumbered by counterprotesters in Murfreesboro.
About 800 to 1,000 counterprotesters gathered in Murfreesboro to oppose the rally, chanting “Murfreesboro loves,” “refugees are welcome here” and “this is what democracy looks like.” About 30 white nationalists showed up at the rally in the square in downtown Murfreesboro.
