An attorney with the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) — a group that claims to be a “hate group tracking” service — was hit with domestic terrorism charges for his participation in riots in the city of Atlanta, Georgia.
SPLC Attorney Thomas Webb Jurgens was arrested last weekend for joining Antifa domestic terrorists who were coordinating attacks on police in Atlanta in a terror-based effort to cancel the construction of a new Atlanta Public Safety Training Center.
These terrorists have been mass protesting and perpetrating violent attacks on police for weeks in an effort to shut down construction of the center.

If you are unaware, the SPLC is a complete fraud. It claims to have the ultimate hate-group tracking service, but its methods are misleading.
The SPLC claims there are thousands and thousands of “hate groups” in the USA, but its methods of counting them literally inflates that number — and is meant to do so. For instance, it tracks every KKK cell as a separate “hate group,” instead of one, like it should, thereby conflating its higher numbers to a “wave of hate.”
But it also counts traditional Christian and conservative groups as “hate groups” and lumps conservatives, Catholics, and Christians right in with Nazis, the KKK, and other such groups.
These false statistics it has thus made up out of its read-end is then used by federal and local law enforcement (and the media) as “proof” of the number of hate groups in America. But it is all built on a mountain of lies. Worse, the media uses this group’s wild-eyed estimates of “hate groups” as single source news, violating the most basic journalistic practice of having two or more sources for any claim.
Certainly there are hate groups in America. That is beyond question. But the SPLC is not in any way, shape, or form a legitimate tracker of these groups. It is a fraud that serves as a front for raising money to enrich itself with donations from gullible leftists.
