'Could've had Stacey Abrams': Outrage erupts as 'pro-virus' Georgia governor kills mask mandates

Published 1 min ago on July 16, 2020
By David Badash, The New Civil Rights Movement





Welcome to Georgia, the state that ranks eighth in population but fourth in new COVID-19 cases.

As the coronavirus spreads across the Peach State, Republican Governor Brian Kemp on Wednesday issued an executive order banning all cities and town from requiring face masks to be worn. Curiously, the directive came just hours after he met with President Donald Trump.

That means at least 15 cities currently requiring face masks now have to rescind those orders.

Face masks have proven to slow the spread of the deadly coronavirus, which is unchecked in the United States, but under control in many other countries across the globe.

https://www.rawstory.com/2020/07/couldve-had-stacey-abrams-outrage-erupts-as-pro-virus-georgia-governor-kills-mask-mandates/

So what does the two major companies or entities that operate at the Hartsfield International Airport, UPS and Delta think of this shit show by Kemp ....................after all UPS and Delta gave money to elect this asshole.......and Hartsfield is run by the FAA and we the taxpayers pay that bill along with the airlines and the passengers..........I for one will not fly into that airport...............

1. Georgia and Florida F'd up mightily

Could’ve had Abrams and Gillum running things from a sane approach. Instead it’s Kemp and Desantis battling it out to see who the bigger idiot is.

14. Sorry end for Gillum. I am sure Fox News reported this.

Got curious about Gillum and discovered he'd got caught with a dead body at a wedding he was meant to officiate. Apparently this behavior was brought on by depression over losing the election. Tragic.

rule right after talking with the Pres. I can almost hear Trump say " get rid of that stupid thing on your face and get rid of masks altogether ". And the Governor did.

6. Outrageous. In Arizona, Ducey finally backed down on this.

When a town or city wishes to institute a mandatory mask order, and the Governor steps in and forbids that, seems like an appropriate time to test whether or not a governor can be sued over Coronavirus negligence.

10. 14 limbaugh/trump/kemp/kkk stations depend on 3 Ga universities and their athletes

to keep broadcasting sports on them, to keep allowing them to use them to attract advertisers

from fakenewsradio.org - GEORGIA 14 Georgia 7, Georgia Tech 5, Georgia Southern 2

all those stations yelled HOAX in a covid theater and continue to downplay the risks and make fun of/politicize masks. they deny global warming, lied us into iraq, and llied about immigrants voting to sell their voter suppression

if any of those schools announced merely even that they were discussing looking for apolitical alternatives others would join in and advertisers would head for the hills. the advertising industry wants those ears and will push them to change programming if people are rejecting rw radio. kemp needs those stations and the paid callers ( from russia too) to have any chance of staying in office.

46. i doubt they know. most are fixated on social media probably. i tried to contact student groups all

over some of these unis a few years ago with no response, except the uni of colorado.

low level long time activism around the uni of colo may have forced big co limbaugh station KOA to demote him to smaller station preemptively - if there was any news about CU discussing it it would get attention of broncos and rockies and that would be a disaster for KOA.

unless media digs into it there's no way to know

47. if there was a away to make it a debate team topic for some unis it might get more

attention but none of them are working now i guess.

another way may be for the community to use the uni as a protest site - basically any major issue is protestable there but stuff like global warming at the florida unis might be potent, or places where the stations are used to sell the republican position on school funding, student loan forgiveness, voting rights, abortion rights etc.

48. Hmm. Same thing for email. It's been an occult

means of spreading usually nasty political propaganda and conspiracy theories within hours to tens of millions across the nation and billions around the planet for years. Young people don't use it, so the effect of its messaging isn't even discussed with other social media. But the older conservatives who spread its lies from a few circles to millions at nearly the speed of light vote in high percentages.

Stupid. I wonder how many kids in college have seen what grandma reads?

Show pictures of Freezer trucks stacked with dead bodies, big holes in the ground stacked with multiple bodies as grave sites. That seems pretty restrictive.

17. Shame I don't have a few "reefers" handy.

Turn them into temporary morgues, park them outside the Governors Mansion (if they have such a thing in GA). Ensure the things are running (I don't care how loud they get, I wouldn't be sleeping next to them - and reefers can get loud) and even if just for show, have people show up with body bags and load the trucks up.

But then Mr. Kemp wouldn't get the hint...

That man is an ass. A murderer. My dad lives in Georgia. 89 and Very vulnerable. Rusty Limpballs fan, My brother lives there, has 12 year old adopted mixed race child, black and white, and during election said “we can’t let that black women get elected”. Late life Christian, got a small business PPE loan for $30,000. Bought a new car. Maybe Kemp mass murder will sway a few votes. Brain washing there is vast.

I bet he's gonna' be pissed about that.

My daughter teaches in Fulton County, they were just informed this morning that school will start as online only and not go back to the classroom until conditions warrant. I'm certainly glad a few people are using their brains.

26. A lot of people are using their brains. 15 of the largest cities require masks.

The problem is that the person in charge, the one who is supposed to think of all the people and their health, is an idiot and is listening to on other idiot. Kemp is a disgrace. It would be fitting if he got COVID with significant consequences.

25. Mississippi, Alabama and Texas all have better governors than us.

Two years ago, I actually voted in the Republican run-off for Casey Cagle in a futile attempt to keep this buffoon from ever becoming governor.

And, of course, I was all-in for Abrams in the general.

I think, with equal and fair access to polling locations for all Georgians, she would have won.

he's marginally better than our piece of shit. He has at least responded, tepidly, to the current outbreak. He is no longer preventing local governments from requiring masks. Our governor is actively working on the side of the virus.

Human lives are not important. Kemp and Desantis will both be sitting in hell with trump, "well what we gon do now boss?" Both Andrew Gillum and stacy abrahams dodged a bullet. Both states realized that not only did those two racist assholes cheat, they proved that they were the wrong candidates to begin with.
