Dem Mayor Flips The Script On Libs After Antifa Burns City

In 2020, we watched Democrat Mayor Kiesha Longbottom's political career crumble during the George Floyd riots.

Atlanta's new mayor isn't planning on playing the same game.

The Mayor was responding to posts like the one below from ABC News.

The Antifa attack was in response to the shooting of a domestic terrorist that shot a police officer.

Police cleared an area that Antifa had taken over when a firefight broke out. A Georgia State Trooper was shot in the abdomen, and the terrorist was killed by return fire from police.

Following the shooting, Antifa called for a day of rage over the weekend. As per the norm, Antifa hid inside a "peaceful protest" and launched their firey attack. Except for this time, law enforcement moved right in.

"And so our police department, along with our state and federal partners, took swift action within two blocks and brought that situation under control," Dickens said Sunday. "And the violence stopped, and those six individuals were arrested. And it should be noted that these individuals were not Atlanta or Georgia residents. Most of them traveled into our city to wreak havoc. And so, we love to support people when they're doing right, peaceful protest is a part of the American -- our freedoms, but when you are violent, we will make sure that you get held accountable."

"The crimes range from violence to domestic terrorism to assault battery and some other things," the mayor said. "But yes, it is violent when someone turns to burn down a police car or breakout windows or have explosives on them. I don't get into the names. I don't know all the organizations. I'll let y'all decide who did it. I just know they're arrested. And if they come into Atlanta, again, to wreak havoc, they will be arrested again."

The Mayor even went so far as to admit that organized groups are targeting the city.

"Yes, those individuals that are protesting against โ€˜Cop City,โ€™ as they call it, it's really a public safety training center," Dickens said. "They don't want to see the very things that they asked for more police training, we can't train imaginary, we have to do it in a facility that allows for police firefighters in the community to train together. And so this is bringing about the change that we wanted to see in 2020. And now while we're doing it, these individuals don't want to see any resources go towards that training, so we're going to develop this training center and those individuals will have to come to a halt."

Five were arrested and charged with Domestic Terrorism.
