(RepublicanWire.org) – Atlanta erupted on Saturday night, with police arresting at least six people after a protest over the death of Manuel Esteban Paez Teran, 26, turned violent.

Teran, also known as “Tortuguita,” or “little turtle,” was killed by police on Wednesday after he allegedly ignored authorities and shot at state troopers on the grounds of the new Atlanta Public Safety Training Center, Fox News reports.

On Saturday night, Antifa brought violent protests to the Atlanta. These Antifa terrorists ignited flares and fireworks, set a police cruiser on fire, and vandalized businesses in downtown Atlanta.

Many of the protestors “don’t even live in Atlanta or in the state of Georgia,” said City of Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens. “And they don’t represent the voices of Atlanta.”

“And some of them were found with explosives on them,” he continued. “You heard that correctly. Explosives. And that has led to a police officer’s car being set on fire and other destruction has occurred.”

“Make no mistake about it,” the mayor said, “these individuals meant harm to people and property.”

Meanwhile, the media tried to pass the protest off as peaceful.

Just after 6 p.m., police said they set an Atlanta Police cruiser on fire, smashed the windows of a Wells Fargo bank and vandalized walls with anti-police graffiti in an area that is typically bustling with tourists.

Atlanta police arrested at least six people after the protest erupted into a night of chaos and violence.

“Atlanta is safe and our police officers have resolved the disruptions downtown from earlier in the evening,” City of Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens said Saturday evening. 

“The City of Atlanta and the Atlanta Police Department will continue to protect the right to peaceful protest. We will not tolerate violence or property destruction,” the mayor added.

We’ve watched Joe Biden allow the Taliban to occupy Afghanistan, wreaking terror on the country’s citizens, as well as on the tens of thousands of Americans who were and are still trapped there. Biden’s Afghanistan mishap is largely viewed by the world as one of the most seriously policy blunders in American history. So why is it any surprise that he and his fellow Democrats are just as inept when handling domestic terrorism? Portland Antifa militants now occupy a waterfront “Autonomous Zone,” one of many such camps that the domestic terrorist organization has formed in leftist-run cities for years.

The new camp is called, probably accurately, the SSPAZ. Leftist terrorists originally held a protest against a patriotic celebration at the location. And when there wasn’t much of a police presence to respond to it, they got other ideas. HumanEvents reports:

Antifa insurgents violently disrupted a patriotic-themed event in Portland Sunday, seeking violence and a clash with the opposing group. 

Hundreds of black bloc Antifa militants arrived at Portland’s Waterfront Park to counter-protest the “Summer of Love: Patriots Spreading Love not Hate” event which was scheduled to begin at 2, per the Post Millennial. 

In efforts to escape possible violence, the group moved the event to a different location. 

Many Antifa came armed, hoping for violence:

Eventually, Antifa put up fencing and occupied the zone. They have guns. They have explosives. This is not only a terrorist attack — but one on Americans soil.

The Antifa mob attacked members of the media and all the while, police stayed out of the way. The Portland Police offered nothing but excuses. “There were no immediate arrests, but detectives are reviewing evidence to determine whether charges can be brought for any criminal activity,” Portland Police said in a statement,” adding:

“As stated before today’s events, officers were not deployed to stand in between individuals intent on confronting one another. But that does not mean the crimes committed will not be addressed. Arrests do not always happen in the moment. As in past such events, we are conducting follow-up investigations, gathering evidence, and will make arrests when probable cause exists that specific persons committed crimes. Just because arrests are not made at the scene, when tensions are high, does not mean that people are not being charged with crimes later.” 

We won’t hold our breath on charges. It’s not like they peacefully trespassed at a government building or anything. Democrats are perfectly fine with this brand of domestic terrorism, the same way they are perfectly happy to allow Afghanistan to be occupied on a larger scale by the Taliban. It’s time for a change in leadership — not just in the Oval Office, but in every single city. If there’s one thing recent years have taught us it’s that electing the right Governor is just as important as the right President.

As always, Antifa was up to its usual games on Friday when the “peaceful protesters” (as they are called by the media and leftists) “fought for justice” (or whatever they are saying these days) by attacking conservatives for simply attending a conference. The place this time was Denver, Colorado — specifically, a Hyatt hotel that was hosting the Western Conservative Conference.

The event hosted notable figures such as Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, Congressman Ken Buck, and more. It was a free exchange of ideas where Americans could openly talk about conservative values and their ideas for the country. Naturally, Antifa had to step in and say “no way!” Antifa attacked innocent people who were just attending or unfortunate enough to be walking near the conference.

Antifa terrorists were also caught on video holding up traffic and attacking vehicles.

They harassed people they thought were attending the conference…

…And, of course they harassed random hotel guests.

Antifa also asked hotel guests who agree with their cause to “pee on the floor” because the Hyatt “host[s] Nazis.”

They also handed out weird Communist propaganda pamphlets.

And naturally, they harassed police.

It’s a wonder that the media and the Left can consider these people to be “heroic” or in any way a force for good. What’s truly unfortunate is that this is typical of Antifa activities around the country. They meet peace with violence, decency with hate. They destroy. They burn. They harass. They “occupy” entire parts of cities. They are a plague. But the Left embraces them and attacks anyone who gets in their way. They must be stopped. They must be imprisoned. And they must be held as long as possible to protect the public from them.

One thing that has marked the last couple years is the string of “peaceful” protests in Portland, Minneapolis, Seattle, and more. We have seen BLM and Antifa loot and burn businesses, destroy communities, brutalize reporters, attack police, and more. Despite clear video of what is going on, liberals and the media say that these people are looting and stealing for justice or something. On Thursday night in Minneapolis, we saw BLM once again looting sneakers for reasons that have nothing to do with justice.

After Winston “Boogie” Smith was shot during an altercation with police, BLM and Antifa once again went nuts. Sure, Boogie had a handgun on cops and sure he was wanted on a state warrant for possessing a firearm (felons aren’t allowed to have those – they’re for law-abiding citizens only). But liberals are screeching once again that his death was somehow unjust.

Once again, BLM and Antifa rioted, tearing Minneapolis apart. And once again, the city was on fire. These justice-seekers combed the city, crying out for free stuff. They looted a sneaker shop. Target, CVS and Walgreens, and more as they tore the city apart.

At least one person was assaulted.

They also hit numerous other businesses:

Not to worry, though. They’re doing this for justice. Just ask this guy, who can’t even remember the name of that one dead guy what caused all this:

Liberals are crazy. They will demand “justice” for criminals and commit crimes and hurt people in its name. Now if they can only remember the names of those for whom they are demanding justice.

Portland. It’s a city in chaos and has been ever since BLM began burning, rioting, establishing “autonomous zones” where cops aren’t allowed, and more. One might assume that a journalist paying these Communist terrorists some attention might be safe. But based on what happened this past weekend when Antifa brutally attacked a journalist, that isn’t the case.

Leftists hate Andy Ngo. He has repeatedly exposed the lies, violence, and bigotry of the people who claim to stand against such things. On Friday, Ngo was reporting on the Portland riots when Antifa attacked.

“No journalist in America should ever face violence for doing his or her job,” Ngo said in a statement. “Yet on Friday, May 28, Antifa tried to kill me again while I was reporting on the ongoing protests and riots in Portland, Ore. for a new chapter of my book, ‘Unmasked: Inside Antifa’s Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy.'”

“I was chased, attacked and beaten by a masked mob, baying for my blood.,” he continued. “Had I not been able to shelter wounded and bleeding inside a hotel while they beat the doors and windows like animals, there is no doubt in my mind I would not be here today. Their words, like their actions, speak for themselves.”

“Antifa wants me dead because I document what they want to stay hidden,” Ngo says. “The attacks against me and threats on my life are retribution for my work as a journalist, recording the tactics and true ideology of an extremist clandestine movement that relies on deception and regards the truth as the greatest threat of all.”

Violence from the Left is rarely mentioned by the media. Andy Ngo is simply a journalist who was doing his job. Unfortunately, the truth is the worst thing that could possibly come out in their eyes.

The Left won. The officer who was unfortunate enough to be restraining George Floyd when he died was convicted of “murder.” Sure, it’s nonsense. Sure, Floyd had enough drugs in his body to kill him multiple times, Sure, he was resisting arrest. But none of that matters to BLM and Antifa, who staged multiple nationwide riots. Buildings were burned. People were hurt and killed. And parts of some cities like Portland and Minnesota fell under armed BLM/Antifa occupation as “autonomous zones” where laws don’t exist. At one of these zones, on the anniversary of George Floyd’s death, gunshots rang out.

News Nation Now reports that someone in the area surrounding where George Floyd died was “disrupted by gunfire” just before crowds of people were due to show up to show support to Floyd:

Philip Crowther, a reporter working for AP Global Media Services, which provides live video coverage to customers, reported hearing as many as 30 gunshots about a block east of the intersection. Crowther said a storefront window appeared to have been broken by a gunshot.

“Very quickly things got back to normal,” Crowther said. “People here who spend a significant amount of time, the organizers, were running around asking, ‘Does anyone need a medic?’ It seems like there are no injuries.”

Police said in a release that they responded to reports of gunfire at about 10:10 a.m. local time in the 3800 block of Elliot Ave. South. Callers told police that a vehicle was seen speeding away from the area. Elder said no one was in custody by midday Tuesday.

Photos taken after the shots fired show broken windows outside a barbershop as people tried to clean up the shattered glass.

The scene was terrifying. In video, you can see the crowd scatter and duck for cover as people run away from the gunfire. It’s a scene normally seen on the news, happening in a country very far from ours. But thanks to BLM and Antifa’s riots, we get to experience something out of the socialist third world right at home. Watch it below:

When Trump supporters, in a mixed crowd of Democrats and nonvoters according to arrest records, peacefully trespassed on Capitol grounds, veteran Ashli Babbitt was shot in cold blood by a DC police officer. Trump supporters everywhere were branded “terrorists” with the Donald Trump as their leader. Social media purged conservative accounts including that of the President of the United States, whom leftists and the media claimed “incited” an “insurrection” by urging people to stay calm and go home. Even free speech social media platform Parler was shut down for a while because Amazon killed its hosting — just because some present at the January 6 rally happened to post there. But what about when BLM violently storms a state capitol building?

On Thursday, in response to bills that protect drivers fleeing riots and police from “doxxing,” BLM and Antifa were at it again! They stormed the capitol building and clearly presented a threatening situation for Republican lawmakers. Fox News reports:

More than two dozen protesters filled the gallery on the fifth floor while the Oklahoma House in the chamber below was in session. Video showed demonstrators chanting, “Stand united against all hate,” and “We will use our voices to stand against corruption, to fight hate, to defend Black and Brown lives.” The disturbance interrupted the session for several minutes.

The demonstration was organized against what activists describe as anti-protest and anti-transgender bills advancing through the GOP-controlled state Senate and House. One bill increases penalties for protesters blocking traffic and protects drivers who unintentionally strike drivers with their cars. Another aims to protect law enforcement and their families from “doxxing.” 

One man stood nose-to-nose with a lawmaker who met him on the gallery in what appeared to be a heated verbal confrontation until another female protester pulled him away. “You’re a disgrace, you’re an embarrassment to the whole f—ing nation,” the male protesters shouted as he left.  

One should think that protecting the families of law enforcement and increasing penalties for illegal activity aren’t bad things. But since BLM and Antifa like to harass and dox cops and their families AND block traffic, they naturally have an issue with this.

The bills would do a lot to protect people who are simply protecting themselves from a riotous mob by offering civil and criminal protections “for motor vehicle operators who unintentionally cause injury or death to an individual participating in a riot under certain circumstances.”

The bill also “provides that organizations found to be involved with individuals participating in riots or unlawful assemblies shall be punished by a fine that is ten times the amount of the fine authorized by the appropriate provision of the bill.” Another bill makes it a crime to publish personal information of police and other public officials online if the intent is to  threaten, intimidate or harass.”

The media was strangely silent about this. Despite video of “protesters” threatening lawmakers, the word “terrorists” seems to be absent from any and all reports about this frightening incident. 

Charges have been filed against an Antifa arsonist related to her criminal actions during a “peaceful” April 13 anti-police “protest,” as liberals call the BLM/Antifa riots. Alma Raven-Guido has been charged with arson, criminal mischief, and felony riot after she set fire to the union hall on North Lombard St.

Willamette Week reports that someone snitched:

The most substantial information in the probable cause affidavit filed Wednesday by the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office comes from the alleged firsthand account of an unnamed informant.

“The informant observed the defendant pour a flammable liquid on the building from three plastic bottles which the informant described as having labels which were either blacked out or taped over with black tape,” the affidavit says. “The informant further explained that when the defendant was pouring the liquid on the fire and causing the fire to grow, one of the bottles caught on fire and started to melt.”

The informant allegedly witnessed Raven-Guido place all three bottles into her backpack, court records say.

The informant reportedly provided a description of Raven-Guido and her alleged “actions associated with the fire,” court filings say. Officer Le then arrested her with the assistance of Officer Ryan Potter, according to the affidavit. They then searched Raven-Guido’s backpack, where they reportedly found lighters and plastic bottles containing “what appeared to be an accelerant.” Prosecutors allege that one of the bottles they recovered was partially melted.

Ouch! Antifa is not happy about this:

This is pretty amazing. Not only did one of them get charged with a crime for once, but she was sold out by one of her own. Right now, Antifa must be panicking as they try to figure out who is narcing on their terrorist activities. The identity of the confidential informant is not yet known, but we’re sure to see them cause more damage to the leftist terrorists before that information is known.

“Every city, every town, burn the precinct to the ground!” the mob of Antifa and BLM “protesters” chanted in Portland on Satuday. Sadly, this is a typical night in the liberal city which, like many others, has chosen to allow race rioters and anarchists to run amok while at the same time condemning peaceful conservatives who trespassed in a building on January 6.

On Saturday, as normally happens, the protest turned violent with more than 100 black bloc Antifa and BLM rioters surrounding the city’s ICE building. They proceeded to cover it with graffiti, cover security cameras, and barricade the front door, trapping law enforcement and others inside.

But the worst was yet to come. Next, they began shooting Roman Candles at the building.

The building caught on fire with people still trapped inside by the “peaceful protesters'” barricades.

Journalist Andy Ngo posted video showing people trying to escape, but their escape was prevented by the barricades.

“An #antifa gives the #BLM fist salute while the crowd cheers on the burning of the @ICEgov Portland facility last night,” Ngo tweeted. “Officers were trapped inside when antifa set the building on fire.”

Fortunately, law enforcement was able to escape out the back of the building. All the while, Antifa and BLM chanted “Every city, every town, burn the precinct to the ground!”

Law enforcement was forced to respond with pepper balls and other crowd control tools. Despite this, Antifa still wanted to fight.

What is going on in Portland and other cities is a disgrace. We as Americans cannot tolerate leftist hate groups destroying our nation. It’s time to demand that Congress do something about these constant violence. Someone needs to put down the mob.

Liberals will be the first to tell you that Antifa and BLM protests across the country are filled with peace-loving people who just want to make society a better place. Some adherents to the radical ideologies of the groups may actually be peaceful and may actually want that. But as we have seen as these “protests” have inevitably turned to riots over the past year, the overall consensus is “burn it all down and start over.” And while leftists will swear up and down that they only want peace, one reporter learned firsthand that these thugs mean business.

An anti-eviction rally in Detroit, Michigan’s Greektown turned violent on Saturday as “protesters” chanted “Black homes are under attack, tell me what do we do, rise up fight back!” And “fight” they did. Reporter Brendan Gutenschwager says that “a man wearing an Antifa pin committed the first assault during the march.”

“Camera stopped a few times while he attempted to steal it. Eventually, others in the group urged him aside to release me from against the building,,” Gutenschwager tweeted. The video is disturbing.

“You’re not f*cking welcome here!” Antifa thugs screamed.

This open hostility could only lead to one place — one of the terrorists slamming Gutenschwager against a concrete barricade and putting him in a chokehold. The reporter was left bloodied from the incident.

“A man rammed me against a concrete fence and barricade, bloodying my mouth and elbow as well as putting me in a chokehold while stealing my camera. That was then thrown over a fence, which I eventually was able to retrieve and continue recording,” the reporter says. Ultimately, he left for his own safety.

Leftists say that their rallies, marches, and protests are peaceful. But say one thing they don’t like or try to document the gathering or wear a uniform or love your country and they will take out their claws and start slashing at you. Prayers to this brave reporter in recovering from his injuries.
