Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has seen enough.
This week, Kemp activated 1,000 National Guard troops in the hopes of quelling violence throughout the state.
Kemp stated, “Peaceful protests were hijacked by criminals with a dangerous, destructive agenda.
“Now, innocent Georgians are being targeted, shot, and left for dead.”
Enough is Enough
Ever since the death of George Floyd, many Democrats have allowed protesters and rioters to be the lawmakers.
In Seattle, an entire area of the city was overtaken by protesters.
In Minneapolis, a police district was abandoned and allowed to be burned down.
People are calling 9-1-1 for help and being told, sorry, there is nothing we can do.
Atlanta and other parts of Georgia were well on their way to more of this, especially after the violence over the holiday weekend, so Kemp had no choice but to activate the Guard in the hope or restoring order throughout the state.
Damage is Done
While the order to send in the troops is the right one, it is a move that is coming far too late to help several victims of violence over the weekend.
Most notably, there was an 8-year-old little girl killed by protesters in the same area as the Wendy’s where Rayshard Brooks met his demise.
Even though Atlanta Mayor Bottoms had ordered the area cleared after the girl’s death, another murder took place not long afterward…
This recent trend of lawlessness is outrageous & unacceptable. Georgians, including those in uniform, need to be protected from crime & violence. While we stand ready to assist local leaders in restoring peace & maintaining order, we won’t hesitate to take action without them. https://t.co/NTacEm4v7o

Additionally, by Stone Mountain, there was a black militant protest by a group calling themselves NFAC.
Hundreds of African Americans dressed in black and armed to the teeth marched through the area to protest the confederacy, blatantly calling out for white militia groups to confront them.
This has gone beyond protest and is now on the brink of a civil war spurred on by racial unrest.
Sadly, Democrats and the media are largely to blame, having fed this machine for more than a month now.
Yet, when the inevitable racial tensions boil over and violence breaks out, somehow, it will all be Donald Trump’s fault in the eyes of the media and Democrats.
