Anti-Muslim group, protesters face off outside Hillsborough school district offices
by Marlene Sokol
A day of trying to keep a Muslim advocacy group out of Hillsborough County's public schools didn't go as planned.
After a prayer vigil Tuesday morning, opponents of radical Islam and about 30 supporters gathered for a news conference outside the school district's downtown headquarters.
They were met by an equally sized and equally vocal group of demonstrators who objected to their message.
Carrying signs that said "Free Speech," "No Hate Today" and "I love angry white people," they shouted down the panel of speakers who had been invited by School Board candidate Terry Kemple, a conservative Christian leader in eastern Hillsborough.
