The City of Stone Mountain last week issued a public warning about the planned demonstrations and asked locals to stay away..."

Apparently it's OK for hundreds of black men (and a few women) to march through the streets carrying their rifles and shotguns, but if a group of whites announce plans to do the same, then it may be too dangerous and the authorities might have to stop it. Why is that?

I sure there lots of whites standing in solidarity with BLM. There has been in every other case. In fact, they often outnumbered the blacks they are supporting. I tried to find some articles but none are MSM sources so dont want to post. But I read about that.

A week or two ago, I saw some pics of the prior Stone Mountain march by the NFAC group and there were only two colors that I saw in the group... Black and Blacker. If I remember correctly, they specifically stated that they didn't want any whites in the group.

So again, why is it such a problem if the whites wish to have a similar march?

BTW, a quick search on Bing will show plenty of pictures of the NFAC march on Stone Mountain back in July. I saw a few brown faces, but didn't see any white ones.

We had multiple large marches here in June exactly like this, and several were broadcast live. It's a real thing.

While most likely not applying to the reasoning of Stone Mountain Park, there are glaring differences in the reasoning of these protesters. BLM are upholding their 2nd amendment right. White supremacists are just that, they are upholding their own 'supremacy' and have little regard of any other person of any other race. They have no reason (especially in this political climate) to uphold their gun rights, they are doing this to intimidate. Huge difference.

That asside, I am not an advocate of either party arriving on a public scene armed without just cause. I havent looked to deeply as per what happened in the previous BLM march at Stone Mountain but I highly doubt that the Park Officials expected them to arrive armed and were caught off guard amid that event which is their reasoning for preparation for this event. They probably expected a peaceful protest. I personally feel if the protesters arrive they should in some way close the park to the general public regardless of which group is protesting.

Got it. Blacks with their "whites aren't welcome" riots totally aren't supermacist either.

Since when has one happened in Atlanta? Most BLM riots not only in Atlanta but nationwide have been overwhelmingly White.

The people who marched in Decatur and at Stone Mountain are part of the Black Hebrew Israelites who are indeed defined by the SPLC as a hate group. The media just doesn’t include that piece of info in the coverage well most of them don’t. It’s just the different side of the same coin.

So you think it’s ok for far right groups to link up with admitted White Supremacist groups to march through the streets shouting hateful rhetoric? Clearly you don’t think White Supremacist are dangerous to begin with. Interesting.
