Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has moved to restore order by declaring an emergency and calling in the national guard to clean up the mess made by Atlanta’s Democrat mayor.
Kemp who is a Republican was like most people not affiliated with the Marxist-inspired Black Lives Matter movement and its media shills truly horrified when the violence that Keisha Lance Bottoms has unleashed claimed the life of an 8-year-old girl over the weekend.
The Democrat-sanctioned violence in Atlanta resulted in the tragic and unthinkable death of the child whose young life was cut short by a bullet in the vicinity of the burned-out Wendy’s fast food restaurant where Rayshard Brooks was killed by police in June.
The outrageous lack of outrage over poor Secoriea Turner who was felled by a bullet shows that black lives only matter when they can be exploited by Democrats and the media as a weapon against President Trump.
On Monday, Governor Kemp took decisive action to quell the violence that Atlanta’s incompetent mayor has allowed to spiral out of control.
Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) on Monday authorized deploying the state’s National Guard after a weekend of violence in Atlanta that included the fatal shooting of an 8-year-old girl.
Kemp declared a state of emergency in Georgia by signing an executive order to allow as many as 1,000 National Guard troops to deploy to Atlanta. The governor said the declaration came after “weeks of dramatically increased violent crime and property destruction” and gunfire over the Fourth of July weekend, leading to five confirmed deaths.
“Peaceful protests were hijacked by criminals with a dangerous, destructive agenda,” Kemp said. “Now, innocent Georgians are being targeted, shot, and left for dead. This lawlessness must be stopped and order restored in our capital city.”
“Enough with the tough talk. We must protect the lives and livelihoods of all Georgians,” he added.
To say that Mayor Bottoms’ performance since the video of George Floyd being killed by rogue Minneapolis cop has been a roaring dumpster fire is an understatement.
Bottoms who reportedly is on the shortlist to be Joe Biden’s running mate has spent more time on MSNBC and CNN fomenting racial animosity than she has in protecting the residents of her own city, most of who are living in fear while mobs run amok and she is at war with her own police.
Governor Kemp also has a job to do and clearly takes it more seriously than Bottoms, an ambitious former city council member who is angling to be the first female president in U.S. history if she is able to scam her way onto Biden’s ticket.
On the day that Kemp declared the emergency and called up the National Guard, Mayor Bottoms conveniently announced that she had tested positive for COVID-19 despite having no symptoms.
A media that already conducts itself as her personal public relations firm will now use her curiously timed announcement that she has coronavirus to immunize her against criticism for her complicity in the violence in the streets.
The death of an 8-year-old child may not be enough to earn her criticism from CNN but it could scuttle her chances of being selected by Biden and the DNC which already had to deal with her lack of national name recognition.
