Gov. Brian Kemp (R) declared a temporary state of emergency in Georgia on Thursday and activated 1,000 Georgia National Guard troops in response to recent anti-police protests and destructive riots in Atlanta.
Kemp’s order referenced protests and riots that occurred on Saturday, which had stemmed from ongoing demonstrations against a police training facility the city is building in a wooded area of metro Atlanta.
The riotous events on Saturday had also come in response to the death of activist Manuel “Tortuguita” Teran, who state officials say was killed by law enforcement after he shot and injured a State Patrol trooper while at the site of the planned facility.

Atlanta officials, including Mayor Andre Dickens (D) and Police Chief Darin Schierbaum, said police on Saturday arrested six individuals after some of the protesters had turned violent and broken businesses’ windows and attacked police cruisers. Dickens noted some were found with explosives that “led to a police officer’s car being set on fire.”
“Make no mistake about it, these individuals meant harm to people and to property,” Dickens said.
Thank God someone is finally doing something about Antifa violence. I am sure the the Dems will try to paint Kemp as a Fascist for arresting Antifa Fascists though. We all need to watch this carefully and let our elected representatives know the truth. Antifa is funding by those that want to destroy America. We must not let that happen.
