A group of armed black militia members who were patrolling Stone Mountain Park over the 4th of July weekend, walked up and down the line of cars who were waiting to get in and demanded “reparations” from the white drivers.
Newsmax reporter John Cardillo retweeted the disturbing video and called it a “game-changer.”
Cardillo, a former law enforcement officer, went on to say: “Approaching someone’s car armed because they’re white and demanding “reparations” is perilously close to felony armed robbery and is most definitely a hate crime.”
Many people wonder how this could be allowed at a family tourist destination.
U.S. News reported that John Bankhead, a spokesman for the Stone Mountain Memorial Association, said the protesters were peaceful and orderly.
“It’s a public park, a state park. We have these protests on both sides of the issue from time to time. We respect people’s First Amendment right,” Bankhead told NBC affiliate station WXIA-TV.
“We understand the sensitivities of the issue here at the park … so we respect that and allow them to come in as long as it’s peaceful, which it has been.”
How on earth is it “peaceful” to demand money from white people to pay for slavery?

OK, game changer.

The reason that this stuff continues going on is because of idiots like the spokesman at Stone Mountain, who is trying to be sensitive.
No, he’s terrified.
He’s scared if he stands up to this angry mob, who are basically pulling armed robberies on all of his white customers that he’ll lose his job.
We all have to suffer and have our lives put in danger because cowards who are in charge are afraid of the mob.
