Antifa has gone to war in Georgia. Months of fighting has ensued over the determination of the Left to stop a police training facility. But the police have fought back killing one leftist who opened fire on them and have pushed back hard in the face of arson, lasers, explosive devices and violent assaults.
This latest piece of news shows just how far Antifa has been willing to go.
The park adjacent to the future site of the Atlanta Public Safety Training Center has been shut down.
DeKalb County CEO Michael Thurmond issued an executive order that makes it illegal to enter Intrenchment Creek Park.
Thurmond says officers have found booby traps inside the park.
The county has released photos showing wooden boards with spikes in them and other devices. The CEO says these devices are possible life-threatening hazards that could endanger the public.
Thurmond says those traps could still be there.
“We know that there are dangers that have been discovered in this area and we are afraid that there might be other hidden traps that will not only injure and maim, but can literally become deadly for small children and pets and others,” said Thurmond during a press conference Friday afternoon.
Intrenchment Creek Park has become a major battle ground with Antifa and its allies camping out there in between battles with police. They appear to have also taken steps to booby trap the area.
As we’ve seen in Portland and Seattle, elements of the leftist have adopted insurgent tactics and function not just as domestic terrorists, but see themselves as Maoist guerrillas fighting battles against law enforcement. This is in keeping with Maoist tactical doctrines that generally haven’t been applied in the United States since the 70s. But the goal is to escalate each encounter, not necessarily to win, but to radicalize and go from a guerrilla movement to full armed warfare. These efforts collapsed in the 70s and the participants went into academia and the ‘system’. Antifa is part of a serious effort to revive those doctrines with American cities as the battlefield.
