Rally against illegal immigration ends with arrest and chaos in Hamblen Co.
Hang onto your hats folks we're in for a another bumpy ride on the Mexitude express...
MORRISTOWN (WATE) -- A rally that was supposed to be peaceful ended with chaos Saturday afternoon outside the Hamblen County courthouse.Let's recap, sixty two year old vet attends anti-illegal immigration march with an American flag. What is the police response? To remove the flag from an American citizen.
Things got testy for a while as police tried to stop a disabled veteran from carrying an American flag onto courthouse grounds.
Teddy Mitchell, 62, was arrested and charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
Police say the flag pole he carried was too sharp and they did not want him to take it onto courthouse grounds.
The Mexitude continues...
Organizers of the group Citizens for Legal Immigration say they had received permission to peacefully take a stand against illegal immigrants. They say they were surprised to see the overwhelming police presence when they arrived."The Tennessee Minutemen and Ku Klux Klan members?" Well there's adelightful combination you don't see every day, except in the fever swamp of this illegal fellating cop's fevered imagination.
A Tennessee Highway Patrol spokesperson, Lt. Glenn Cantwell, told 6 News troopers were prepared for the worst.
"You never know who may show up to these things," he said.
Authorities had received word that the Tennessee Minutemen and Ku Klux Klan members might show up to protest. Morristown Police Chief Roger Overholt asked THP to assist.
Lt. Cantwell says there were about 80 armed officers at the scene. They included officers from Morristown, a police SWAT team, Hamblen County deputies, THP officers, and a police helicopter.
Officers barricaded public parking lots around the courthouse.
The leader of the protest had this to say...
Organizer Audrey Lowe told 6 News the city and county violated the group's First Amendment rights. "One hundred percent violated," she said. "Our freedom of speech was violated. Our freedom of peaceful assembly was violated. Our freedom to fly our flag, the U.S. flag, on the public courthouse lawn was violated today-- big time."Yes, yes they were, and unfortunately this is all too common. This is a war folks, and if you think we're fighting Mexico you're not paying attention. Let's break it down. Who benefits from illegal immigration? cultural elites. Who benefits from the cultural elites? Politicians.
We have seen this over and over in protesting illegal immigration, Americans who are standing up to the invasion are considered "the enemy." The illegals are coddled and cooed over by those sworn to upold the law while those American citizens making uncomfortable demands are arrested, ordered to leave, or assaulted by illegal aliens while the police and press stroke their pet illegal aliens and drone on about how peaceful their pets were.
This will come to a physical fight, it almost has to, because our government and our cultural elites are battling to maintain access to the slave class to which they've become accustomed. The louder we get the more violent they will become, bank on it. This is just a taste of what's coming down the pike.
This is where I think this is headed.
Am I wrong?
