Bait for what? I live in Atlanta.

For that matter ATS is a conspiracy theory forum, so with your point of view on this, why are you even a member?

hopefully the city keeps the events kinda staggered and out of each other's footpaths so no tempers flare

Did you not say this in the OP?



Now the two I see causing the most concern are Black Pride and Biden's visit.


You honed in this, not me. You made it a focus in your OP.

I respect your right to have an opinion, but respect mine when I say that you are off in La-La land here. I think your posts shows ignorance and a level of conspiracy-minded lunacy.

Just because a lot of people are going to be in the same town for a weekend and it's going to be hot, does not give any rational person the feeling that people are going to riot/protest, and no one in their right mind would assume it's possible that agent provocateurs would be sent in to get it all started.

Many cities across this country have weekends with a lot more than this going on at once and you don't see riots/protests.

Are you concerned because this in in your hometown, or are you afraid of gay black people?


Yes...I honed in on those TWO things because they are both part of very hot topics around the country right now...that would be why they worry me the most. You have a VP, and possible presidential candidate, coming to speak at a Jewish Synagogue about the nuclear deal with Iran, AND you have a Black Pride parade which offers a great opportunity for exactly the scenario I have stated earlier to play out.

This is a conspiracy theory forum...not a news site.

Please send me some links to other cities that have had more than this going on at once with 6-800K people coming in town for the weekend.

I am hoping there is some kind of traffic control that will happen, but from buckhead to downtown is going to be locked up tight for a while starting about lunchtime today.

Yes...I think some people mistake it for actual news sometimes....

I understand it's a conspiracy forum, but not all conspiracies are rooted in sanity. We will just have to wait and see. I think your concerns are misplaced, but who knows?

Well I have siblings and family there that live in the Buckhead area and I hope they stay the hell away from the downtown. That does seem like quite a bit of opportunity for things to escalate and a police force to be spread mighty thin.

I think I would be cooking out and boarded up behind my own barricade.

Good luck!

The pope visiting Philly is not quite on the same level. While there may be a lot of people there, it is to see a single person and not about a cause at all. But even the Pope will have the US Secret Service AND his Swiss guard with him, so he must be insane to think anyone would do anything....

This is a multi-function gathering of people in a large city with two of the main attractions being heavily involved in current and ongoing national news on a daily basis. If it was just one of them happening this would not even be a blip on my radar, but there are multiples and two of them are hot topics.

I am perfectly fine with you thinking my thoughts on this are insane....you're a poster on a conspiracy theory forum to me....

Can you point me to a conspiracy theory that IS rooted in sanity? Wouldn't that make it a conspiracy fact?

I would say there is more potential for something to happen this weekend, than nothing.

Yeah...Buckhead is going to blow Deez Nutz...I am in Sandy Springs just outside the perimeter so hoping to avoid most of it, though all of the hotels nearby are booked out completely so I am sure there will be no getting in to restaurants nearby for the weekend.

I won't be going anywhere close to downtown or Buckhead solely because of traffic. I am sure if something does happen it will likely make the news.

I am sure you will start feeling it soon as well. I don't think you can find a hotel room in Atlanta at all right now. Most of the travelers will be starting to hit town about now and throughout the rest of the day.

I'll talk to my sister later on and see if she had a rough time. She works in the Alpharetta / Cumming area but lives in Henry County... Commuting 675 to 75 to 400. If there's a crunch, she will end up dealing with the worst of it I would imagine.

Oh...yeah....that would be a really crappy commute even without the added traffic. Tomorrow will likely be bad as well. I work out in Norcross so I typically am going to opposite direction as most traffic, but will that many coming in town I will be going with traffic today.

So..here is a bit of what I am talking about. Biden just left from Davie, FL....yeah I know..who has heard of Davie. FL? Well he gave the same talk there he is planning on giving in Atlanta tonight.

Source



Vice President Joe Biden made a strong case for the nuclear deal with Iran Thursday morning before some of South Florida's most prominent Jewish leaders.

He spoke at the David Posnack Jewish Community Center in Davie at an event hosted by U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a Democrat from Weston, whose district includes many Jewish residents.

The congresswoman, in introducing Biden, said she is still making up her mind on how to vote on the deal, and added, "I am not afraid to make this decision…This decision will be made not only with my head, but with my Jewish heart."


So Davie only has a population of 98K people and more than 100 people gathered there to protest. And he would not allow media in after his opening statement:



After Biden's opening statement the media was escorted out of the room.

Meanwhile, more than 100 protesters gathered in Davie to protest against the Iran deal.


So Atlanta has a population of 5.5 million with an added 6-800k coming in. I will just use the 5.5 million for my purposes here....5.5million divided by 98K is roughly 56, multiplied by the number of protesters (100) that showed up in "nowheresville" to protest and you get 5600 possible protesters in Atlanta.

Out of those 5600 I would imagine there will be some hotheads....so this is again one of my main points for being a bit apprehensive about all that is going on this weekend. There are bound to be protests at both his meeting AND the Black Pride parade...just hoping nobody does something stupid....

im in Cali, the third largest state and most populated in the US. there is a lot going here this weekend... but whatever.

Why are you comparing all of California to the city of Atlanta? I am sure a TON goes on in California all the time. My point is that multiple things that are not normally together are going on in Atlanta this weekend with two of them being related to the last couple months major news stories. Atlanta doesn't normally have 6-800k visitors pouring in every weekend. California likely does statewide, but that is not really comparing the same to same now is it?
