LORI AND THE MAN CONVICTED OF FIRST DEGREE MURDER IN A CHURCH SHOOTING.. IN COURT TO RECIEVE HIS SENTENCE. LORI: HELLO EVERYONE… I’M LORI TUCKER. BO: AND I’M BO WILLIAMS. THANKS FOR JOINING US. BO OUR TOP STORY THIS AFTERNOON… A SELF-PROCLAIMED WHITE NATIONALIST COMING TO UT FOR AN EVENT TONIGHT… LORI WE’VE TOLD YOU ABOUT RICK TYLER BEFORE… IN 2016, HE WAS RUNNING TO REPRESENT THE 3RD DISTRICT OF TENNESSEE IN CONGRESS.. AND PUT UP A BILLBOARD ALONG HIGHWAY 411 READING MAKE AMERICA WHITE AGAIN BO TODAY, TYLER IS RENTING SPACE ON CAMPUS FOR AN EVENT TITLED WHITE NATIONALISM: FACT OR FICTION. HE IS NOT AFFILIATED WITH ANY CAMPUS GROUP AND WAS NOT INVITED TO THE UNIVERSITY. LORI NEW AT FOUR.. WATE SIX ON YOUR SIDE REPORTER BLAKE STEVENS HAS SPENT THE DAY LEARNING MORE ABOUT TYLER AND.. AND HEARING FROM STUDENTS ABOUT TONIGHT’S EVENT.. RICK TYLER SAID THE POINT IS TO CALL OUT MYTHS SURROUNDING WHITE NATIONALISM. TYLER WOULDN’T GIVE A STRAIGHT ANSWER WHEN I ASKED IF HE BELIEVED WHITE PEOPLE ARE SUPERIOR TO OTHER RACES. BUT HE SAID THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH BEING PROUD OF BEING WHITE… AND HE BELIEVES OUR NATION WAS NEVER MEANT TO BE A DIVERSE MELTING POT. VO: HE EXPLAINED THE CONTROVERSIAL MAKE AMERICA WHITE AGAIN’ SIGN REFERS TO A TIME WHEN AMERICA WAS PRIMARILY WHITE. TYLER’S EVENT IS SET TO GO FOUR HOURS TONIGHT ON U-T’S CAMPUS. CAMPUS POLICE SETTING UP BARRICADES OUTSIDE THE ALUMNI MEMORIAL BUILDING THIS MORNING. I TALKED TO A GRAD STUDENT AT U-T WHO IS CONCERNED FOR STUDENT SAFETY… NOT JUST PHYSICAL… BUT A POSSIBLE MENTAL TOLL FROM TONIGHT. 4:01 MY HOPE IS THAT WE CAN KEEP OUR STUDENTS SAFE. THAT’S REALLY MY BIGGEST CONCERN IS KEEPING STUDENTS SAFE AND KEEPING THEIR WELL BEING UNDER CONTROL AND LETTING THEM KNOW THAT THEY’RE OK AND WE’RE HERE AND THEY’RE NOT ALONE 12 TYLER CLAIMS HIS VIEWS AREN’T ABOUT HATE. BUT, IF YOU WERE TO GO TO HIS WEBSITE… YOU’D SEE THINKS ABOUT ENCOURAGING MORE WHITE IMMIGRATION… AND KEEPING A WHITE MAJORITY TO ENSURE OUR COUNTRY’S SURVIVAL… WE’LL SEE HOW MESSAGES LIKE THAT… ARE RECEIVED AT U-T TONIGHT… IN KNOXVILLE — BS — WATE — SIX ON YOUR SIDE.
