Police: Armed protestors asked to leave Juneteenth celebration


Two different protest groups were asked to leave downtown Franklin Saturday after attempting to disrupt the Juneteenth celebration.

Franklin Police said one of the groups consisted of people carrying signs that read “White Lives Matter” and “Stop White Replacement.” They added that another group, who said they were a buffer between festival-goers and the other group, included people who were armed and wearing ballistic vests.

Members of each group were also reportedly handling out pamphlets saying they are protesting because “the anti-white system is committed to our physical genocide” to festival attendees before police arrived.

Authorities asked both groups to leave and they complied. No violence or arrests were reported after Franklin officers intervened.

Aside from the confrontation, there were big smiles for the celebration organized by the Franklin Justice and Equity Coalition.

“It unites people together and you get networking,” Carol Johnson said. “It shows the world that we can come together and unite to do different things.”

More than 100 businesses, food vendors and churches participated in the event.


How far we haven’t come:

    1. Hello Nan. She made a great point. But I keep thinking of this replacement idea. Are the whites leaving? Being taken out of the country or being denied citizenship? No nothing is happening to them except in their minds. And that is the part that makes me wonder. These clowns say they are being replaced because their vote is being diminished. But that means their party and who they vote for is appealing to less and less people. That is democracy, and the solution for their party is to appeal to more voters. But they don’t want that. So every birth in the country could be a possible diminishing of their vote, they don’t need immigrants for that. They are so stupid they don’t realize the more people they push away with their hate is diminishing their vote that much more. Hugs
