About 300 white nationalists took over the cities of Shelbyville and Murfreesboro in Tennessee today! Both cities are southeast of Nashville where about 18,000 refugees from countries such as Somalia and Iran have settled.

Earlier this year, the state of Tennessee filed a lawsuit against the federal government accusing them of forcing the state to pay for refugee resettlements and that is why these people are protesting! “We don’t want the federal government to keep dumping all these refugees into middle Tennessee,” says Brad Griffin, a League of the South member. He desires to create a white “ethnostate” for white people which would basically be a white nationalist state.

In an attempt to allow these people their right to protest, police have created a barrier between the white nationalists and their opposers. Members of the League of the South can be seen holding signs which read “STOP SOUTHERN CULTURE GENOCIDE.”

What are your thoughts, Roommates?!
