“The police actually allowed us to square off against each other,” a Black Lives Matter protester told CNN. “There were fights and the police were standing a block away the entire time. It’s almost as if they wanted us to fight each other.”

“Where are the police?” One Antifa protester said in the crowd.

An organizer for the Louisville chapter of Black Lives Matter has published an expletive-laced list of "10 requests" for white people, which includes asking white people who can afford to downsize to give up their homes.

"White people, if you can afford to downsize, give up the home you own to a black or brown family. Preferably a family from generational poverty," reads one suggestion from Chanelle Helm, co-founder and core organizer of the Louisville group.

In traveling across the state to campaign for governor, Mae Beavers has encountered “an increasing anxiety” about Republicans not governing based on conservative principles, she told reporters Wednesday.

Despite the dominance of Tennessee Republicans in the governor’s office and both chambers of the state legislature, the GOP is “losing its way in Nashville,” Beavers said.

Beavers was at Mt. Juliet City Hall Wednesday afternoon to announce that she will not serve the remainder of her term as state senator so that she can give full attention to her gubernatorial campaign. Beavers (R-Mt. Juliet) used the opportunity to also talk about the “discontent” and “skepticism” in the state about Republicans campaigning as conservatives but then going against conservative principles once in office.

Most of what President Trump does or says seems to drive the Left and their fellow travelers in the national news media crazy, but the reaction to President Trump’s rally in Phoenix, Arizona was completely over the top.

State Rep. Judd Matheny (R-Tullahoma) on Tuesday called on Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam to do what he can to stop NFL players from taking a knee during the playing of the national anthem.

Haslam's brother, Jimmy, is owner of the Cleveland Browns in addition to being CEO of the Pilot Flying J chain of gas stations and convenience stores.

UT Knoxville alumnus Rev. Osagyefo Sekou credits antifa forces with whom he was "discussing tactics," for "saving life" while he was protesting in Charlottesville.

It's ironic that Sekou, an anti-Israel agitator who supports extreme anti-Israel groups like Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and the U.S. Campaign to End the Occupation (CEO), would be demonstrating against Neo-Nazis in Charlottesville.

There is no doubt that the “community organizing” methods and philosophy developed by Saul Alinsky have had a penetrating effect on our politics. However, has it made government more responsive or improved results for citizens?  That is highly doubtful.

What happens when Saul Alinsky and his tactics do not go far enough for you?

We are probably about to find out.
