Senator Kelly Loeffler’s campaign event was interrupted on Thursday in Forsyth County by Black Lives Matter radicals.
Loeffler was campaigning with Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton. The two senators proposed legislation that will withhold funding from district attorneys who refuse to prosecute crimes arising from protests. The legislation is called the Holding Rioters Accountable Act.
Georgia Sen. Kelly Loeffler said her Republican supporters “stood up” to Black Lives Matter protesters who disrupted a campaign event.
“The most important thing is that we have law and order in this country,” she told “Fox & Friends” Monday. “We have to hold them accountable.”

“Black Lives Matter rioters came in and they were protesting and trying to break it up, but we didn’t stop because, look, this is one thing that our country is built on,” Loeffler added.
While the disruptors shouted and police refused to intervene because it was in a public park building, Loeffler’s supporters shouted her name and chanted “USA” in response.
Several Soros-funded District Attorneys in the US today are releasing violent mob rioters back out on the street as cities burn from the continued riots. Of course, the left is staunchly against such a law that would curb street violence.
Loeffler says the incident shows the “stark contrast” voters have in November, giving them a clear choice between order and chaos.
“Do they want the opportunity to have free expression, to have the rule of law, safety, and security in their communities? This is the type of legislation I have been introducing to help the president to make sure that we have a strong, safe economy,” she said. “Or do we have the chaos and pandemonium that they want to create just to consolidate power in the radical left?”
She says her bill would hold rioters and district attorneys accountable for their actions, including when they don’t prosecute rioters and looters.
They tried to take away my business. They tried to take away my Senate seat. Now, they’re trying to crash my campaign events.
It won't work. BLM is a Marxist organization that wants to defund the police and destroy our cities. I'll NEVER stop speaking out.https://t.co/u0x5W88TB9

This wasn’t her first clash with BLM either.
Loeffler, a co-owner of the WNBA’s Atlanta Dream, saw players from the Atlanta team wear t-shirts that read “Vote Warnock” in support of her Democratic opponent, Rev. Raphael Warnock, after the Republican senator spoke out against the league’s social justice plans.
