Police release mugs of thugs who attacked ‘Cop City’, Southern Poverty Law Center defends one of its own

The left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center is defending one of the organization’s employees who was among those arrested for a daring attack on the site where a police training center is under construction near Atlanta, where a horde of mostly out-of-state anarchists rioted, setting vehicles ablaze in the latest outbreak of left-wing domestic terrorism, a phenomenon that has drawn little condemnation from Democrats and the media.

During the violent Sunday incursion on the Atlanta Public Safety Training Center which has been dubbed “Cop City” by Antifa thugs who are determined to prevent it from being built, the criminals used fireworks and Molotov cocktails to torch construction equipment in an escalation of force that could be the precursor for more violence to come. A total of 23 people were detained for their role in the assault on the location, including 28-year-old Thomas Webb Jurgens, who works for the SPLC.

“Law enforcement detained at least 35 demonstrators in Atlanta on Sunday, including an NLG Legal Observer. All of these arrests are part of ongoing state repression and violence against racial and environmental justice protesters, who are fighting to defend their communities from the harms of militarized policing and environmental degradation. Each of these instances, including the many protesters charged with domestic terrorism, make clear that law enforcement views movement activists as enemies of the state,” the organization said in a statement.

“An employee at the SPLC was arrested while acting — and identifying — as a legal observer on behalf of the National Lawyers Guild (NLG). The employee is an experienced legal observer, and their arrest is not evidence of any crime, but of heavy-handed law enforcement intervention against protesters,” the SPLC stated in defense of their “in-house” domestic terrorist.

As Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson and Trace Gallagher point out, the SPLC functions as an enforcer for the Democratic Party and is a source that is often relied on by the hyper-partisan FBI that many believe functions as President Joe Biden’s “personal Gestapo” when it comes to accusing non-leftists of being violent extremists.

While the organization said that Jurgens was merely a “legal observer,” it has been reported that the terrorist – who attended the esteemed Oxford University in the UK and received a Juris Doctor from the University of Georgia School of Law – has an impressive resume, including work as “an assistant public defender and a legal intern at a US attorney’s office in Florida. The Florida Bar’s website lists him as a current SPLC lawyer,” according to The Daily Mail.

Video released by the Atlanta Police Department shows the squad of terrorists as they approached “Cop City” in a military-style column.

Of those who were taken into custody by law enforcement, only two were from Georgia, with the majority coming in from out of state including from locations as far away as France and Canada. Fearless investigative journalist Andy Ngo, who has documented the Antifa menace for years – nearly losing his life in the process – was on the beat and took to Twitter to identify the culprits.

“Frédérique Robert-Paul (b. June 1988) is a radical anarchist from Saint-Pascal, Quebec, Canada. She has a graduate-level sociology background from @Concordia University in Montreal,” Ngo pointed out. “The grinning Dimitri Leny (b. Nov 1997) is from France.”

One Republican Georgia lawmaker, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene announced that she would be bringing forth legislation to call a spade a spade by designating Antifa as what they are – a domestic terrorist organization.

“Antifa are domestic terrorists and I’m introducing my resolution to officially declare them a terrorist organization on Tuesday,” Greene tweeted on Sunday.

“This is part of a months-long escalation of policing tactics against protesters and observers who oppose the destruction of the Weelaunee Forest to build a police training facility. The SPLC has and will continue to urge de-escalation of violence and police use of force against Black, Brown and Indigenous communities — working in partnership with these communities to dismantle white supremacy, strengthen intersectional movements and advance the human rights of all people,” the SPLC said, seemingly justifying the act of terrorism by playing the race card.
