A rowdy crowd of hundreds attended Tuesday’s so-called “Public Disclosure in a Diverse Society” meeting in Manchester, Tenn., where speakers were scheduled to talk about protecting the civil rights of Muslims. The only this is, most of the people at the meeting were there in protest of controversial comments made by U.S. attorney Brian Killian.
One of the speakers, Kenneth Moore, the special agent in charge of the FBI’s Knoxville Division and Afghanistan war veteran, knew he was facing a tough crowd before he got up to the podium. So he had some fun with it.
“Attorney General Eric Holder,” Moore began, prompting emphatic boos from the audience at the Manchester-Coffee County Conference Center.
“That’s not a part of my speech tonight, but I thought I’d just go ahead and get that out of the way,” he joked, turning the boos into laughs.

Conservative comedian Jeff Allen, who was present at the event hosted by the American Muslim Advisory Council of Tennessee, told TheBlaze that the meeting was constantly interrupted by hecklers.
He also said the speakers just read prepared talking points, resulting in a fairly unproductive meeting. Read TheBlaze’s previous report here.
