Black Lives Matter rioters are destroying cities across America.
But few politicians are willing to stick their neck out and condemn their violent acts.
Now one Governor just took a stand against Black Lives Matter rioters and Leftists are furious.
Black Lives Matter riots that began in Minneapolis, Minnesota quickly spread and are ravaging cities across the nation.
Riots quickly engulfed Atlanta, Georgia after police shot and killed Rayshard Brooks during a violent altercation where Brooks stole and fired a taser at the officers.
Some of the worst violence has been in Atlanta, Georgia, where a police officer killed Rayshard Brooks in a Wendy’s parking lot after he resisted arrest and fired a taser at officers.
Shortly after, the Wendy’s was burned by Black Lives Matter vandals.
Rather than prosecute the rioters and vandals, city officials chose to prosecute the officer who shot Brooks, charging him with murder, in an effort to appease the violent mob.
Now, many Atlanta police officers are calling in sick, with some reports suggesting officers on duty aren’t responding to calls, leading to an explosion of violence.
And in the worst act of senseless violence yet, an eight-year-old girl, Secoriea Turner, was shot dead by rioters in her mother’s car while driving near the burned out Wendy’s.
After that incident, Georgia’s Governor Brian Kemp isn’t putting up with the lawlessness and violence anymore.
Kemp took a stand by declaring a state of emergency and deployed 1,000 National Guard troops to Atlanta to restore order in the beleaguered city.
“Peaceful protests were hijacked by criminals with a dangerous, destructive agenda,” the governor stated Monday according to Business Insider. “Now, innocent Georgians are being targeted, shot, and left for dead.”
“This lawlessness must be stopped and order restored in our capital city,” he said. “Enough with the tough talk.”
But Atlanta’s Mayor, and possible Democrat Vice Presidential pick, Keisha Lance Bottoms, was fuming when she heard about the Governor’s orders.
Bottoms claimed, “It’s a terrible visual to have military tanks on our streets. It has the potential to further inflame this already very tense situation. I personally think it’s overkill.”
Governor Brian Kemp’s decisive action is the type of strong leadership Americans have been craving for in response to the lawlessness across the nation.
But while Leftists across the nation watch their cities burn from violence, they refuse to address the issue head on and claim bold action like Governor Kemp’s is the problem.
Unless more political leaders stand up like Governor Kemp has, the violence and lawlessness will not stop.
