Dear Antifa Terrorists: Please Go to Georgia, So Cops Can Kill All of You

Posted on | January 20, 2023 | 1 Comment

Dead terrorist Manuel ‘Tortuguita’ Teran

Georgia ain’t Oregon and Atlanta ain’t Portland, OK? So if the unbathed terrorist mobs of Antifa want heroic martyrdom, Atlanta’s the place to be, because cops down in Georgia shoot to kill:

Seven militants have been arrested and charged with domestic terrorism following a deadly shootout with law enforcement at their “autonomous zone” in a wooded area south of Atlanta. They are all from out of state.

(Because nobody from Georgia would try this bullshit.)

On Wednesday morning, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and other law enforcement agencies conducted a raid on the so-called autonomous zone at the site of the future Atlanta Public Safety Training Center. Since June 2021, Antifa and other far-left extremists from across the US have occupied the area to prevent the construction of what they call a “cop city.” The GBI says a Georgia State Patrol trooper was shot and severely injured during Wednesday’s raid by a man camped in the area. Officers returned fire and killed the gunman, who allegedly used a pistol.

(Folks down in Georgia call that “justice.”)

Georgia’s Department of Public Safety will not name the injured patrol trooper, saying it would “compromise security against criminal or terroristic acts due to retaliation,” but told local media he was in the ICU after having emergency surgery. The deceased gunman was named on Thursday by the GBI as 26-year-old Manuel Esteban Paez Teran. He used the alias “Tort” and “Tortuguita.”
“Manuel used they/it pronouns…please make sure we are remembering them properly and respectfully,” wrote the Atlanta Community Press Collective in their statement revealing the shooter’s identity.

(“The only good Commie,” etc.)

Following the shooting, the GBI and its law enforcement partners continued to clear the autonomous zone and several arrests were made of suspects—all of whom are from out of state. The GBI say they confiscated a cache of weapons that include mortar-style fireworks and edged weapons.
Matthew Ernest Macar, 30, Spencer Bernard Liberto, 29, and Sarah Wasilewski, 35, all from Pittsburgh, are each facing charges of domestic terrorism and aggravated assault upon a public safety officer.
A fourth suspect who would not identify himself in jail was later identified as 20-year-old Geoffrey D. Parson, of Baltimore.
Additionally, Timothy A. Murphy, 25, of Rockport, Maine, Christopher Reynolds, 31, of Dayton, Ohio, and Teresa Yue Shen, 31, of Brooklyn, New York, were charged with domestic terrorism.
TPM can report that several of the suspects come from well-to-do backgrounds. Shen is an alumna of the Manhattan liberal arts institution Barnard College. Macar graduated with a master’s degree in international affairs from Penn State University in 2016.

It’s unfortunate that not all of them died in Wednesday’s gun battle, but it seems like these terrorists are only getting started with the violence.

Let me tell you something: If these out-of-town hippies think they’re going to be safe on the streets of Atlanta on a Friday night . . .

Well, the cops will be the least of their problems. Crime in Atlanta has spun out of control the past couple of years. The local gang-bangers might not be too kind to these affluent “save the forest” kids.

By the way, don’t believe anything you read on the Internet about this situation. It seems that the Antifa lunatics and their “progressive” friends have orchestrated a propaganda campaign so that everything on Wikipedia about the site of this proposed police-training facility has been written in the past few months by supporters of the “autonomous zone.”

Beginning around 1920, the Atlanta Prison Farm used inmate labor to produce food for those incarcerated at the city’s federal penitentiary. At some point in the 1960s, the city of Atlanta acquired the property, and parts of it were used for a middle school campus. The remaining property is about 350 acres, including dilapidated buildings from the old prison farm, and the nonprofit the Atlanta Police Foundation reached an agreement with the city to develop about a quarter of the site — 85 acres — as a modern police training facility. But OMG! What insane propaganda has been produced to “Save the Atlanta Forest,” as if this were some pristine nature preserve, an untouched slice of wilderness!

You can read (at CNN, the pro-Antifa network) how the site is located “less than half a mile away from a tributary of the South River, which is one of America’s most endangered, according to nonprofit conservation group American Rivers. That’s a result of decades of neglect and pollution the area, which is overwhelmingly Black, has endured, local advocates say.” Anyone can look at a map and see that there are all kinds of development in the area — the nearby industrial park, a truck stop next to I-285, etc. — so the idea that the police training facility would do environmental damage to this allegedly vital “tributary” (Intrenchment Creek) is nonsense. And, as I say, only a quarter of the existing site will be used for the training facility, leaving more than 200 acres of parkland.

Being a native of Atlanta, let me tell you something about Georgia, in case you’re not familiar with the area. It’s hot and humid, which means that all manner of plant life grows with astonishing rapidity there. The house where I grew up in Douglas County had a chain-link fence around the backyard, and every summer one of my chores was to go out and cut the honeysuckle vines off that fence. If you didn’t cut those vines off — and it was tedious work, trust me — the whole fence would be covered in vines. The ditch down by the road? Oh, the hours spent with a slingblade cuttting back the brush and briars that sprang up relentlessly there! And the pine forest up the hill across the road? Oh, just 40 or 50 years earlier, that had all been farmland, until the bottom fell out of the cotton market. Stop farming your property for just a few years, and next thing you know, what used to be a pasture becomes a tangled forest — and that, my friends, is what happened to the old Atlanta Prison Farm.

The overgrown Atlanta Prison Farm

Reckon all those out-of-town hippies camping out in what they’ve dubbed “The Atlanta Forest” never handled a slingblade in their whole lives, and they sure as hell don’t realize that this “forest” only dates back to the 1960s or so, when the inmates stopped cultivating the property. Now it’s a tangled mess of briars and vines and oaks and pines and, if you’re a damned tree-hugging fool from Pittsburgh or someplace, maybe it seems like a South American rain forest or something, but it’s just what happens to any property in Georgia that’s gone untended for a while.

Converting this property into a police training facility seems like a worthwhile use of the otherwise neglected site, but what do a bunch of anarchist scum care about property and its worthwhile uses?

So, let us wish Antifa luck with their plans for a “Night of Rage” in Atlanta. Maybe the cops will kill a few more, then more out-of-town anarchists will show up to protest about that, and so on and so forth, until Georgia cops finally finish killing every last one of them.

Just hope the cops have plenty of ammunition . . .
