Republicans certainly do not share the same ideology, ethics, and principles with Democrats. Georgia Governor Brian Kemp depicts a notable and relevant difference between today’s far-left Democrats and liberal-minded law-and-order respecting Republicans.

As more Marxist revolutionary types join the Democrats, the pressure for defunding and eliminating the department of police propelled.

In a bird's eye view, the pressure would only look like a dense idea, but when thoroughly analyzed, the real purpose is to wreak havoc wide enough to create anarchy that the Americans will scream for change. It makes perfect sense. A revolution, no doubt, pulls a government through the chaos and massive unrest.

Contrary to the above, GOP Gov. Kemp is in a different direction, and with him are Republican lawmakers who control the state government. They are trying their best to ensure proper protection and support for the police force.

The Epoch Times has recently reported:

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp on Aug. 5 signed into law a new measure pushed by Republicans that grants enhanced legal protections for police officers, and provides additional criminal penalties for those who target officers.




House Bill 838 criminalizes what it calls “bias-motivated intimidation.” Under the measure, individuals who cause the death or serious bodily injury of a police officer, firefighter, or emergency medical technician can face up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000. The crime also applies to individuals who cause more than $500 in damage to property owned by first responders.

The measure states that the sentence must be added to any other criminal conviction and cannot be served at the same time as others, with each violation counted as a separate crime. Under these rules, violations such as vandalism aimed at officers could result in separate convictions for both the new crime under House Bill 838, and the vandalism itself.

Police officers will also be allowed to sue people or entities for either infringing on their civil rights “arising out of the officer’s performance of official duties,” or knowingly filing false complaints against them.

When it comes to describing the legislation as a “step forward as we work to protect those who are risking their lives to protect us,” Kemp also noted: “While some vilify, target, and attack our men and women in uniform for personal or political gain, this legislation is a clear reminder that Georgia is a state that unapologetically backs the blue.”

According a survey conducted very recently, most logically-minded Americans including a significant percentage of black people, support the legislation.

“Self-described liberals support defunding the police by a 13-point margin,” HuffPost reported. “But nearly every other ideological and demographic group opposes it. Democrats and Democratic leaners oppose it by a 4-percentage point margin, and Black Americans oppose it by a 20-point margin.”

Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden told CBS News, “I don't support defunding the police. I support conditioning federal aid to police based on whether or not they meet certain basic standards of decency and honorableness. And, in fact, are able to demonstrate they can protect the community and everybody in the community.”

Amidst the country’s overall racial injustice, on the other crisis gripping the nation, Americans appear slightly uneasy about the COVID-19 and are willing to return to their previous affairs.

The survey shows: “There is a nearly 10 percentage point decrease in concern among Americans from three weeks ago, with 69% of Americans still concerned about contracting the virus, compared to 78% who said the same in mid-May.

Still, majorities of Americans are now ready to eat at a restaurant (59%), stay in a hotel (57%), attend church (57%), go to a shopping mall (53%), and send their child to school (54%).

Back in May, less than half of Americans wanted to eat at a restaurant (41%), stay in a hotel (45%), attend church (42%), go shopping (38%), and send their child to school (31%). The biggest mover across all the activities was in willingness to send their child to school.”
