Kemp: Georgians’ Voices Matter Less during Pandemic

Breaking news! In a recent filing, Brian Kemp, the Governor of Georgia, has asserted that Georgians’ voices matter less during a pandemic.

In Matthew Charles Cardinale v. Brian Kemp (in his personal capacity), Cardinale, Original Complaint filed on June 25, 2020, he asserted in Paragraph 50: “The voices of the citizenry are no less important to the discourse of democracy, during a national pandemic.”

Brian Kemp, in his response filed on November 02, 2020, denied the “allegation.” “To the extent a response is required, Defendant denies the allegations,” Kemp responded through his attorney.

By denying that our voices are no less important during a pandemic, Kemp has asserted that our voices are, as a matter of fact, less important during a pandemic.

In other words, stay at home and shut up! Trust your government – your government has everything under control!

“I wasn’t expecting this particular statement of fact to be controversial. I was hoping this would be a place where the Governor and I could find common ground: our most sacred democratic values. But in his answer, Brian Kemp reveals that it was never an oversight; he just doesn’t want us protesting,” Cardinale says.
