“White Lives Matter” rallygoers attacked an interracial couple at a Tennessee restaurant, assaulting a white woman bloody in the process.
Over the weekend a "White Lives Matter" rally had been quickly shutdown before it had a chance to incite. Of course that didn't stop the hopeful attendees from making their presence known.
It was Saturday night, and the Corner Pub in Brentwood, Tennessee, then, sometime before 7:45 p.m., several dozen men and women dressed in black filed into the restaurant and took over a long table.
Near the large group, a 30-year old white woman and a 37-year old black man were sitting at a table. And eventually several men from the large group started talking to them, and questioning their presence. Quickly heated words were exchanged.
The 'White Lives Matter' leftovers heckled the couple and that didn't lead to prosperous action.
A local woman took to her social media to document.
The fallen rally attendees didn't find much support as a the cycle of violence and hatred seems to not be catching on. One bystander posted :
I went to Brentwood this evening to escape the rally chaos in Murfreesboro. Guess who showed up at the restaurant I was at. I recognized them as soon as they walked in, and I wondered if anyone else there knew. These guys, maybe 20 of them, dressed in all black, paraded through to an adjoining room, and immediately started harassing a biracial couple there. It broke out into a huge fight with them busting open the face of the white girl who was furious with them for harassing them. I honestly can’t believe this is happening. My heart hurts. I’m shaking and trying not to cry. I try to always stay positive on FB, but I think in light of today’s events, I get a pass...I’m just mortified.
P. S. When I left, the police were still there speaking with the biracial couple. I really wanted to, and wished I would have, gone over to give them a hug. #justloveeachother
The Tennessee craziness did not go unnoticed!

This is ALL trump lifting the rocks these nazi scum live under. Makes me SICK to see such ignorance and hate freely roaming, hurting others.— MReynolds (@MReynolds407) October 29, 2017
It’s high time we chased these troglodytes back under the rocks they came from!— Phil M (@philm1066) October 29, 2017
He rallied them, he called to them, but they have always been there, communicating by 'dog whistles', then internet, waiting for their day.— Jen (@Jeni4clare) October 31, 2017
Why can't people just leave people alone, they have no authority to even open their yaps!— Edith Conner-King✌ (@ltlbowtie) October 29, 2017
When the time police arrived, everyone had dispersed. The 30-year-old woman later came back to make a report. Authorities are looking for the man accused of punching her, described as a white man in his 30's wearing a black jacket and black jeans.
Let's hope justice has eyes.
