    WATCH: Leftist protestors 'storm' Georgia state capitol to protest voter ID laws
    The protestors who entered the Georgia state capitol in Atlanta were reacting to a voter ID law that was passed which adds restrictions to voting.

    Georgia's state legislature passed a new voter ID law, and leftists in the state were so upset by it that they stormed the state capitol.

    In the video, an officer can be seen instructing the demonstrators that they are "in violation of 16113441." A woman approaches the officer, putting her face up against his megaphone, and another officer tries to lead her away, taking her arm, saying "step aside ma'am." She resists.

    "You will disperse immediately or you will be arrested," the first officer tells the encroaching crowd. The group of protestors does not disperse, and the officers continue to tell them they are in violation. The woman continues to argue with the officer.

    This "storming of the capitol" went largely unnoticed by media despite their ongoing concerns about the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol in Washington, DC.

    The protestors who entered the Georgia state capitol in Atlanta were reacting to a voter ID law that was passed which adds restrictions to voting. Primarily, the bill requires a photo ID for absentee ballots, limits the time a voter has to request an absentee ballot, and put restrictions on the location of and access to ballot drop boxes.

    Republican Rep. Barry Fleming, who sponsored the bill, said that "House Bill 531 is designed to begin to bring back the confidence of our voters back into our election system."

    Additional protestors included those affiliated with Democrats from Fulton, DeKalb, and Clayton counties, the NAACP of Atlanta, the Party for Socialism and Liberation, and the Atlanta Democratic Socialists of America, according to local news.

    Protestors object to any limits on voting, or implementation of voter ID laws, saying that it disenfranchises primarily minority voters who don't have enough access.

    Among those who protested the bill were Alaina Reaves, who is the the president of the Clayton County Young Democrats. Reaves said that "We take one step forward and then you know these legislators are trying to bring us up to two steps back."

    Georgia was the site of prolonged controversy during the 2020 election season. The Trump campaign launched concerns about voter fraud and election integrity while voting rights advocates like Stacey Abrams pressed celebrities into service to bolster the campaigns of two Democrat senatorial candidates in her state, both of whom won their seats.

    Everyone knows when the left riots it is a peaceful demonstration and when right wingers riot it is an insurrection by domestic terrorists.

    From your link:
    ATLANTA — Several Democratic members of the Georgia House of Representatives joined in a spontaneous protest against Republican-led election reform bills at the Georgia State Capitolearly Friday afternoon.



    Let me also say that if this local news is like my local news, everything they present is leftist narrative. Everything.

    The second link is from the Washington Examiner, certainly not a leftist publication. It just didn't happen.

    The demonstrator the officer was addressing (the one who moved in front of the bullhorn) is state rep Cannon.

    I’m heartened to see this:

    I like the twist where she wants a public apology after she stuck her head in the trooper’s bullhorn. :Thumbsup

    Following the confrontation, Richards said, the protesters sat down on the staircase and remained there. Cannon said she wanted a public apology from the trooper who touched her. She declined an offer of a private conversation.​

    I suspect those storming the capital building could not do near as much as those who were already inside. :Biggrin

    I tell you this, they would have gone out in body bags if I had anything to do with it.

    BLM-aligned, anti-Trump group brags they ‘helped storm the Capitol’

    With the DC police helping facilitate the breach, & Bowser refusing more security (why?) the stage was set for Bougaloo Boys, representing BLM, & Antifas trained bad actors. My guess, since we’ll never be told the truth, is that very few of those who entered were part of the real group who showed up to protest.

    There are plenty of times protesters have breached the halls of congress, even recently many more actually filled the Hall. Those protesters were hailed by the left. Now the dems are turning the place into something out of a third world with razorwire & the guard posted. When has this become an acceptable state of being? There is no threat, there was never a true threat. Just more stories being spun for more control.
