(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) The domestic terrorist group Antifa on Wednesday night was actively encouraging members and supporters to converge on Atlanta for a “night of rage,” in the wake of a leftist militant being gunned down by police after shooting a Georgia state trooper at the site of a proposed police training facility just outside of Atlanta on Wednesday morning.
Authorities stated that the trooper was a part of a “clearing operation” at the site in DeKalb County when a protester opened fire, according to the Daily Mail. Officers fired back, and the unnamed domestic terrorist died at the scene.
This morning marks a milestone.
ANTIFA, in an Autonomous Zone (their words), exchanged gunfire with the Georgia State Police.
This is a bigger deal than the media is making it. https://t.co/5m1zKu2kif

The unidentified trooper was in surgery by the afternoon of the same day and was in stable condition, Georgia State Patrol Col. Chris Wright said at a news conference outside Grady Memorial Hospital.
Antifa thugs swarmed the scene in protest Wednesday, and radicals with the Antifa activist group Forest Defenders were coordinating “a call for reciprocal violence to be done to the police and their allies” with a “night of rage” in Atlanta on Jan. 20.
A CALL FOR RETALIATION
Consider this a call for reciprocal violence to be done to the police and their allies. On Friday, January 20th, wherever you are, you are invited to participate in a night of rage in order to honor the memory of our fallen comrade.https://t.co/C6gfU6gfXB pic.twitter.com/WcfKGQ0Ptf

Wednesday’s attack on police was another example of the violence that the “Forest Defenders” have committed. Before that, they hurled rocks and Molotov cocktails at police and contractors at the site. Last month, five Antifa members were arrested on domestic terrorism charges from the chaos.
The radicals became even more violent over the last few weeks by destroying property, committing arson and attacking both local and government officials, the Daily Mail reported.
Richard Porter, an auto mechanic in Dallas, Georgia, said that the group was throwing things at him, including a “gas bomb,” which forced him to flee, leaving his truck behind that was eventually burned down.
“It seemed to me like they were going to burn the truck with me in it,” he said.
Many far-left extremist accounts on Twitter are urging their comrades across the U.S. to connect with their affinity group (AG), a term to refer to the local cell, in order to carry out acts of violent retribution against police. https://t.co/oIIbCySoYz pic.twitter.com/i3LCvug9fZ
