On Monday, Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr spoke with local AccessWDUN radio to denounce the Antifa riot on Saturday night in downtown Atlanta, saying he was "confident" their crimes counted as domestic terrorism.
"I am confident that the facts will show that these individuals have engaged in domestic terrorism. It provides for a serious punishment and for a longer term if convicted," Carr said.
On Saturday, Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene also called the Atlanta Antifa domestic terrorists and tweeted, "It's happening again TONIGHT in Atlanta. When will our federal agencies start taking left-wing TERRORISM seriously? Looking at you Merrick Garland… ANTIFA/BLM = DOMESTIC TERRORISTS!"
Members of the so-called Treehouse Antifa took to the streets Saturday to scuffle with police, set a police car ablaze, and throw rocks and fireworks at the Atlanta Police Foundation. The riot came after the now-suspended Atlanta Forest Twitter account called for a "night of rage" following the fatal shooting of one of their members, 26-year-old Manuel Esteban Paez Teran. Paez Teran was killed after he shot a police officer.

RuhRoh! He might have hurt Oregon’s feelings. 😢
Oregon is a hole.
Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. Shoot a cop, get shot.
Let’s hope these people stupid themselves into extinction.
Funny how during the BLM antifa riots and insurrection on 2020 they let them run wild. Of course back then they were useful because they harmed Trumps re-election.
Now they are suddenly a menace and the local governments bravely confront them.
You will be if you keep Oregon’s voting system.
I used to live there. Geographically, it is an incredibly beautiful state. Politically, it’s a dung pile.
They might burn down Portland over this.
That would be awful.
Politically it is way better than other places
This should be Fun!
Don't know if the AG will actually get convictions, but the whine will be heard nationwide.
Awwww. I wonder if hurt their weedle feelings?
He should start by arresting the SOS.

America has a terminal under-incarceration problem.
America doesn’t have an over-incarceration problem. America’s problem is that it doesn’t put and keep enough of these animals behind bars or apply the death penalty to them more liberally.
Anyone heard from Stacy Abrams?
Left-wing TERRORISM starts in D.C.
As expected the democrats are turning America into a third world country only two years to destroy most of it.
Yep, that's why I doubted convictions, too many Prog Socialist Enemies of America have positions of power in Georgia State Government.
It’s time to form militias to act and take care of business. That is their purpose, to keep and maintain a free state.
