Militia plans armed protest over Georgia mosque
They’ll show up with their guns at the Newton County courthouse.
The protest is scheduled to take place at the same time as a planned Board of Commissioners meeting that was cancelled due to security concerns. Commissioners were expected to lift a temporary moratorium on new places of worship at that meeting, paving the way for a proposed Muslim burial ground and mosque, which the militia opposes.
The investigation was opened after several members of Georgia Security Force III% made a video of themselves over the weekend protesting the presence of Muslims in the county and allegedly trespassing on the site of the proposed cemetery and mosque.

The protest has been called for by Henry County resident Chris Hill, who appears in the video calling himself “Blood Agent.”
