"Close to 300 Knoxville police officers, Knox County sheriff's deputies, and Tennessee Highway Patrol troopers kept close watch over a white supremacist rally Saturday in downtown Knoxville.
The 30 or so protestors came from across the United States to Knoxville to argue that national and local media are not giving enough attention to black-on-white crimes. The issue they are thrusting to the center of their message is the double murder of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom.
I have myself commented (scroll down) about the way the atrocious crime concerned has been ignored by the major media -- in contrast to the way the non-crime of the Duke lacrosse players was splashed nationwide.
But I too have been labelled a "white supremacist" for opposing racial preferences (i.e. "affirmative action") so I guess that what we see above is just the usual Leftist substitution of abuse for rational argument.
George Orwell portrayed Leftists as using words to mean the opposite of what they really described and we certainly see a lot of that today.
Ace has some thoughtful comments on the media behavior in the matter.
