Georgia Gov. Kemp declares state of emergency after protests, mobilizes National Guard

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp declared a state of emergency Thursday in response to ongoing protests in downtown Atlanta.

Kemp ordered the state's defense department to mobilize up to 1,000 state National Guard troops to be called up to active duty "as necessary."

Authorities arrested six people Saturday when demonstrations over a proposed training ground for the Atlanta Police Department, which started peacefully, involved shooting fireworks, smashing windows, and igniting a police cruiser once protestors reached downtown.

The group behind the protests, called 'Stop Cop City,' has demonstrated against the training facility for months and was particularly moved last week by the death of a protestor when police raided a campground occupied by demonstrators.

Funny how the National Guard can be mobilized in minutes when Black people are protesting.

When the Capitol is being overrun by White insurgents, inexplicably, National Guards can't be mobilized.

Police cars make a lovely fire.

The racist lynching enthusiast at R5 would also make a lovely fire.

I just heard yesterday that there are 7 million men not working, not because there aren't jobs, but because they just don't want to. So I guess the answer is no

r4 the Capitol riot wasn't a riot, don't you know? They were patriots who were taking back their country! God and Jesus were on their side and they were doing the Lord's work. It was totally different.
