We’ve been calling the violent communist group Antifa domestic terrorists for years now, because at one point they were actually designated as such. After this past weekend in Atlanta, there’s no room for debate anymore. The communist group Antifa is a terrorist organization, and that’s my own designation.
It all began early last week when a reported environmental activist Manuel Esteban Paez Teran was killed by a Georgia State Patrol trooper after the “victim” decided to shoot at officers, striking one in the pelvis. The trooper underwent surgery for the wound, according to the Washington Examiner.
The initial protest was in response to the proposed building of an 85-acre police training facility.
As the Examiner reported:
Earlier in the week, a Georgia State Patrol trooper killed a protester during a raid of the location for the proposed 85-acre training facility. The officer was clearing protesters who had been camping out at the spot for over a year. The trooper was initially shot by the protester in the pelvis and the protester was then killed when officers returned fire. The officer underwent surgery at a nearby hospital on Wednesday.
The "Stop Cop City" protesters mourned the loss of the environmental activist Manuel Esteban Paez Terán, aka "Tortuguita," who opposed the training facility, which is to be built in a forested area. They demanded "Justice for Tort" on social media leading up to Saturday's protest. He was involved in their "Defend the Forest" movement that opposed the cutting down of trees for the $90 million project.
Of course, Teran was billed by “comrades” as the usual gentle soul that wouldn’t hurt a fly. Sure, but he had no problem trying to shoot and kill police officers. Such a saint.
Predictably, Antifa then rampaged through Atlanta on Saturday burning a cop car and smashing buildings in the area. There’s a word for violence done in the name of politics — I think it’s terrorism.
Only six Antifa rioters were arrested in connection with the riot, but all have been charged with domestic terrorism, according to The Post Millennial editor-at-large Andy Ngo.
Breaking: Police released mugshots of the #Antifa riot arrestees who allegedly carried out a terrorist attack in downtown Atlanta on Saturday. 5 out of the 6 are from out of state, w/one originally from Portland. They’ve been charged w/domestic terrorism.https://t.co/FC8HmlYLew pic.twitter.com/AAMEDBfZzy— Andy Ngô 🏳️🌈 (@MrAndyNgo) January 23, 2023
One question that comes to mind is if the majority of the rioters arrested were from out of state, who funded their trip to the scene?
And judging by the mugshots, these are the real domestic, white terrorists plaguing this country. One Twitter account that watches Antifa activity says at least some of the actions undertaken by the terrorist group were pre-planned.

Again, note the clear planning that has taken place. The bricks/rocks are being pulled out of a bag that was put down in front of multiple people in black bloc (0:57). https://t.co/OCwxtaZldW pic.twitter.com/Pl7OIrIwzr
