#FreeTN Rally Draws Attendees from Across Tennessee and Speakers on the Subject of Freedom


NASHVILLE, Tennessee – A third #FreeTN rally held Sunday included attendees from across Tennessee and out-of-state visitors as well as subject matter experts on the topic of freedom.

The event was held across the street from the Tennessee Department of Health in Nashville, which also happens to be the lawn that sits below the state capitol with a few hundred in attendance.

Counties as far away from Nashville as Carroll, Knox, Maury and Putnam were represented as were neighboring counties of Sumner, Robertson, Rutherford and Williamson. Residents of other states, such as Wyoming and Washington also took time to attend.

Even the highly esteemed Dr. Alan Keyes – a champion of returning the United States to a God-honoring nation who served in the administration of President Ronald Reagan and more recently founding IamTV – made the drive from Sevier County. He told The Tennessee Star that, as he has conducted interviews about the impact of the coronavirus, he wanted to see what the #FreeTN movement was all about.

The highly-regarded Dr. Alan Keyes, a surprise attendee at the event, visits with other rally-goers.

While Kim Edwards spearheaded the non-partisan, grassroots #FreeTN movement to push for the reopening of Tennessee’s economy by pointing out that everyone is essential, it has evolved into protecting constitutional liberties from government overreach, as The Star reported.

In addition to the expansion in messaging, the latest #FreeTN rally also expanded in its program by including speakers on various aspects of freedom.

After opening with a prayer by Edwards’ husband, Josh, Kate Taylor sang the national anthem. Taylor, who is the founder and an instructor at the Concordia Arts Academy for children and teens that was forced into shut down, made the bold statement that they would be reopening on June 1 and not closing again.

#FreeTN organizer Jennifer Greene of Cookeville is a graduate student in medical clinical health counseling, which has particular relevance in the age of, among other things, the social distancing being mandated during the coronavirus.

Greene, obviously from a knowing perspective, asked the attendees if anybody had been criticized, bullied, vilified or accused of wanting their grandmother or child to die since speaking out. When the audience responded in the affirmative, Greene revealed that for her the fallout had gone so far that she has been censored by the leaders in her church.

As part of her graduate studies, Greene has learned that there are thousands of peer-reviewed articles on the devastating effects of isolation on physical, mental and emotional health.

While she commended Governor Bill Lee for opening Tennessee at a faster rate than other states, Greene expressed concern about some provisions that remain in place like contact tracing and the more offensive disclosure of the name and address of those who are tested positive to law enforcement.

Greene’s mention of the practice was met with boos from the audience.

Constitutional lawyer and civil rights attorney Robert Barnes, an East Ridge, Tennessee native who has handled such high-profile clients as Alex Jones and the students of Covington Catholic High School, reminded attendees that America’s founding began with a smallpox epidemic which occurred during the years of the Revolutionary War.

Barnes pointed out that when we live in a time period where a virus spreads indoors, but people are stopped from going outside, and are required to stay inside, it could be nothing other than a “power grab.”

Civil rights and constitutional attorney Robert Barnes, who has represented high profile clients like Alex Jones and the Covington Catholic High School students, was encouraging of the protest efforts while relaying a sense of urgency in fighting for freedom.

He went on to point out numerous inconsistencies in the guidance and policies, calling it “a mass public psychology experiment.”

Barnes relayed a sense of urgency with the current situation, which requires public resistance and protests like the attendees were doing.

“We must restore our rights now,” said Barnes. “Like Tennesseans at the Alamo, if we don’t, freedom may be lost forever.”

Father of eight, husband and physician, Dr. Theron Hutton said he never thought he would have to speak so forcefully about freedom and liberty and not just about health.

Dr. Hutton made the point that decisions seem to come from those who stand to gain the most.

He suggested that health departments should focus on small, local and sustainable food production; do research on the health impacts of what is sprayed on fields and field by the tons every single year; stop worrying about giant research projects that benefit huge drug companies and focus on things that are known to help like vitamins C and D, selenium and zinc; and study the impact of wireless technology on health.

Dr. Hutton said that the health department has lost our trust when they share information about COVID-19 test results with local law enforcement without permission, consent or knowledge, something he was made aware of from a patient until he researched for himself.

Dr. Hutton urged support of the people who “put their necks on the line” at their own potential peril.

Dr. Dale Brown, otherwise known as “The Wild Doc,” speaks bare-footed to the rally attendees as many recorded his remarks with their cell phones.

Dr. Dale Brown, a bare-footed Clarksville-based chiropractor also known as “The Wild Doc,” was introduced as “a champion for medical freedom.”

Many of the rally attendees were so interested in what Dr. Brown had to say, they recorded his talk with their cell phones as he explained a situation he was involved with when a local government pushed a resolution that would have schools encourage parents to have their children get a flu shot.

During the meeting on the resolution, Dr. Brown testified that the flu vaccine has been around tens of years, yet the incidences of flu and pneumonia have gone up. Additionally, if the resolution passed, Dr. Brown said there would be a greater occurrence of flu-related deaths in children.

Meanwhile, as Dr. Brown describes it, he watched the health department tell lies and not use one bit of research in their presentation.

Dr. Brown telling patients in a health department waiting room about a CDC whistleblower who admitted to lying about vaccines causing autism, earned him a letter from a government attorney banning him from the health department.

Dr. Brown concluded that the collective ignorance and unknowing is played upon, and that at the bare minimum, parents should at least be given the information so they can make their own decisions.

In keeping with the way it started, the rally ended with a prayer, with all dodging the forecasted thunderstorms.

    This gathering of Patriots in Nashville Sunday, were here to celebrate Freedom & Liberty and to honor God Almighty. We were not at home playing Keyboard Commando, or calling the Authorities and snitching on their friends and Neighbors, but rather joined in prayerful and repentant agreement to God Almighty, to forgive us our trespasses, to provide wisdom, guidance and healing, and to restore that which has been lost or stolen, to heal our Land.
    We are also defending our Unalienable Rights and Liberties, those given by God Almighty.
    We are in accordance with our Declaration of Independence, which states in part: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. –That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security”

    Many Americans are getting WOKE UP. Some are Speaking out against the Government overreach and acts of Tyranny. #walkaway
    May God Almighty bless and prosper these efforts. May he call upon the lost, that they too, might repent and turn from their wicked ways, and know Jesus as their personal Savior and Lord.

    Thank you Laura Baigert and the Tennessee Star for ANOTHER well written News account of Liberty in action !

    Assuming Dr. Brown was referencing CDC whistleblower Dr. William Thompson. That story and the correlation of autism incident rate with the MMR vaccine when administered according to the CDC schedule is detailed in the movie Vaxxed.

    The CDC knows there is a problem with MMR administered at 18-20 months, but worked to hide it, just as they have done with Dr. Mikovits’ research showing the vaccine cell lines and blood supply are polluted with Corona viruses and XMRVs.
