Southern Poverty Law Center Attorney Charged With Terrorism In Atlanta Riot | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Publisher's Note: This post appears here courtesy of the The Daily Wire. The author of this post is Luke Rosiak.

    An attorney with the far-left nonprofit Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) was arrested Sunday for allegedly committing domestic terrorism to stop a police facility from being built.

    The Atlanta police department said Sunday night that Thomas Webb Jurgens was among the 23 people charged after a "group of violent agitators used the cover of a peaceful protest of the proposed Atlanta Public Safety Training Center to conduct a coordinated attack on construction equipment and police officers. They changed into black clothing and entered the construction area and began to throw large rocks, bricks, Molotov cocktails, and fireworks at police officers."

    According to the State Bar of Georgia, Thomas Webb Jurgens is an attorney for the SPLC who was admitted to the bar in 2021. He is one of only two of the 23 alleged agitators who were actually from Georgia, according to the police.

    On LinkedIn, Jurgens says he is a staff attorney for the SPLC's Economic Justice Project, a former assistant public defender in Orlando, and a graduate of the University of Georgia. Public records reviewed by The Daily Wire matching the name and birthdate provided by Atlanta police match up with the job history on LinkedIn, showing the study of law at the University of Georgia and past residency in Orlando.

    SPLC's website says its Economic Justice initiative seeks to reform the criminal justice system, "stopping the use of 'offender-funded' services such as private 'probation' companies" and "working to reform bail systems that discriminate against the poor and to stamp out abusive practices by bail bond companies."

    The SPLC did not return a request for comment. Jurgens' cell phone was turned off.

    Jurgen's arrest was first noted by Republican operative Greg Price, who pointed out that the FBI has relied on SPLC's judgments about who is a "hate group." Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC) asked in response: "Will the SPLC be listing itself as a hate group?"

    Last month, an FBI whistleblower leaked a document showing that the FBI was investigating those practicing "radical-traditionalist Catholic ideology" as potential domestic extremists, in part by citing that the SPLC listed the faction among its "hate groups." The FBI rescinded the document after it leaked, saying it "does not meet the exacting standards of the FBI."

    The FBI previously called the SPLC "a well-known, established and credible" organization, and it has briefed the FBI on purported domestic terror, Fox News reported.

    In 2013, a man shot an employee of the Family Research Council (FRC), targeting it, he said, because SPLC said it was a hate group. He said he planned to kill as many people as possible there and smear Chick-fil-A sandwiches on them as they died.

    SLPC raises millions of dollars through fundraising solicitations suggesting that they're stamping out groups like the KKK. In reality, it has branded a wide variety of conservative groups as "hate groups," and conducts generic liberal advocacy such as opposing school choice.

    SPLC has enormous influence in the public school system through Learning for Justice, its initiative which produces highly activist curriculum and gives it to teachers for free, encouraging them to use the outside lesson plan, which teachers find enticing because it saves them time of creating their own.

Considering how abjectly corrupt and civilly abusive the Left has become regarding the corrosive effect of their elected leaders; their entrenched and ruling bureaucracy; employing their failed Education Industry as Indoctrinators; their collusive private sector operators, such as the terminally discredited Legacy Media and Big Tech censorship of Free Speech: What will be the best course forward for hardworking Middle Americans, including the Patriot Class?
  Withdraw from society, go underground and plan for a resurgence when it is feasible to do so.
  Work within the confines of better policy by the People's government, once good sense and sanity is restored in the electorate at large, to achieve such.
  Are you a crazy, nut-job Insurrectionist? Everything is perfect within our plan to achieve our intended goals for the Socialist Left.
  Secession to form a true Constitutional Republic.

Considering what has happened to our Representative Republic since the corruptive orthodoxy that led to the tolerated abomination - The Russia Hoax - where felonies were perpetrated upon the American People by the creation of the Two Tiered Justice System, in the misnomer of "Social Justice:" Where do you stand on sustaining our constitutionally guaranteed freedoms in a society where injustice is chronically sanctioned by one political orthodoxy?
  I believe in a perfected society by employing a higher governmental authority to train the behavior of the public.
  The United States Constitution does not allow just a few freedoms, it guarantees ALL freedoms promised to Humankind by God.
  Just don't take away my Social Media.

Considering the renewed and unequalled dishonesty in elected politicians, at all levels of governing, and their associative nefarious bureaucrats doing their corrupt bidding: What is your opinion of YOUR government, and what do you intend to do about it?
  Today's overall government is just fine, and I will continue to vote for politicians that make promises to suit my individual needs.
  Today's overall government is poor, but I will continue to endeavor to learn what is true from the the most honest of media, and pick those representatives that best represent what is good and decent.
  I spend quite a bit of time on Eastern NC NOW; so ... I am having a far easier time separating the proverbial "wheat from the chaff" in finding honorable citizens to support.
