Knocking On The Door While Black

Georgia Says This Is A Felony

Yesterday Georgia State Representative Park Cannon was arrested, and felony charged mind you, for knocking on the door of the Governor while black. I mean, look at the sheer Antifa/BLM violence of her actions folks as her hammer like fist of Thor (only a black woman Thor) wraps on the door.

The white cop arrested her for knocking on the door while the all white Governor, surrounded by all white guys, was signing the bill that (among other things) makes handing out water to those waiting in election lines a criminal offense. In short, small government conservatives at work.

This actually happened in America yesterday. But the story does not end yet. You see, for what you just saw, Representative Cannon was actually charged with two felonies. One for allegedly “Preventing Or Disrupting General Assembly Sessions Or Other Meetings Of Members” and one for “Willful Obstruction Of Law Enforcement Officers By Use Of Threats Or Violence” during her arrest.

Online the fellow white officers of the Georgia State Patrol have issued a statement doubling down on their actions. It seems, they say, that this was all okay because Representative Cannon was repeatedly warned to not knock on that door.

So that settles don’t you see? Just like John Lewis was repeatedly told to not cross that Edmund Pettus Bridge. Just like Rosa Parks was repeatedly told to not sit in that seat of the bus.

This is horrific. It happened in America. It’s flat out Klanish.
