Counterprotesters Blast ‘La Bamba’, MLK’s Speech To Drown Out “White Lives Matter” Neo-Nazi Speaker




Hundreds of white supremacists and neo-Nazis descended on Shelbyville, Tennessee, for a “White Lives Matter” rally on Saturday to demonstrate against refugees.

Hundreds of marchers chanted “closed borders, white nation, now we start the deportation” and the Nazi slogan “blood and soil”, but they were reportedly drowned out at times by counter-protesters who blasted Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech and latino rocker Ritchie Valens’ 1958 hit song, “La Bamba.”

Speaker Michael Hall was attempting to address his fellow white nationalists Saturday afternoon via megaphone when counter-protesters began blaring the song, according to video captured by BuzzFeed.

In the video, Hill can be heard over the music angrily denouncing the counter-protesters as “degenerate whores.”



The group was also heard chanting “blood and soil” during the march, a slogan that was adopted by German Nazis.

Counter-protestors sang “Amazing Grace” at the Shelbyville rally while the white nationalist leaders attempted to speak.





Counter-protestors also played Martin Luther King Jr.’s iconic “I Have a Dream” speech as one of the white nationalists spoke at the rally.
