Following a weekend of terror in DeKalb County, a nonprofit founded by twice-failed gubernatorial candidate and election denier Stacey Abrams sided with the out-of-state extremists who pelted police with firebombs and rocks, demanding "justice" for a leftist militant accused of shooting a Georgia state trooper in the gut.
The New Georgia Project and New Georgia Project Action Fund, which previously sought to help Abrams in her pursuit of power, posted calls to action on social media Tuesday, stating, "This Thursday, March 9th at 6 pm ET, NGPAF activists and partners will be in Atlanta marching to #StopCopCity as part of the National Day of Action Against Police Terror."
The accompanying poster demands justice for Tyre Nichols and "Tortuguita."
TheBlaze previously reported that the dead leftist whom NGP now seeks "justice for," Tortuguita or Manuel Esteban Paez Terán, was fatally shot by law enforcement on Jan. 18 after he allegedly fired multiple shots at officers without warning, striking a Georgia State Patrol trooper in the gut.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation noted that law enforcement officers were conducting a coordinated operation to "identify people who were trespassing and committing other crimes on the future Atlanta Public Safety Training Center," a center dubbed "Cop City" by radicals.
When clearing out a wooded area near Constitution Road, troopers came across Terán, who was camped out where just a month earlier, six leftists had been arrested and charged with domestic terrorism.
According to the GBI, officers gave verbal commands to the man. Instead of complying, he allegedly opened fire and was then fired upon.
In addition to demonstrating in support of a trespasser who reportedly died while trying to slaughter police officers, Abrams' New Georgia Project and the New Georgia Project Action Fund are championing the cause of accused terrorists.
Twenty-three leftist extremists were reportedly charged with domestic terrorism after barraging police with rocks and incendiary devices Sunday at the site of the planned Atlanta Public Safety Training Center in Dekalb County's South River Forest.
According to the Atlanta Police Department, a group of violent agitators used the demonstration as cover to launch a "coordinated attack" on construction equipment and began lobbing "large rocks, bricks, Molotov cocktails, and fireworks at police officers."
Among the 35 people arrested Sunday, many were from out of state, and some were even from outside the United States, reported CNN.
Atlanta Police Department officials underscored Sunday night, "This is not a protest. ... This wasn’t about a public training center; this was about anarchy."
"I strongly believe in the right to peacefully protest for what one believes is right and just," said District Attorney Sherry Boston of Dekalb County. "However, I draw the line at violence, destruction of property and threatening and causing harm to others."
Republican Gov. Brian Kemp said the violent activists responsible for the attacks "chose destruction and vandalism over legitimate protest, yet against demonstrating the radical intent behind their actions."
"Domestic terrorism will NOT be tolerated in this state," said the Georgia governor in a statement. "As we continue to respect peaceful protest, we will also continue to ensure safety in our communities. We will not rest until those who use violence and intimidation for an extremist end are brought to justice."
Whereas the governor seeks to bring violent leftists to justice, Abrams' nonprofit wants them to escape it.
The NGP's Mobilize.us event posting suggests that the anti-police march, expected to be up to three miles long, will begin at King Center and end at the Atlanta University Center campus "after dark," adding, "Make sure to wear or bring whatever you need to feel safe and strong and to make post-march transportation plans accordingly."
NGP and the NGPAF, both led by CEO Kendra Davenport Cotton — previously managing director of Planned Parenthood Southeast — will be joined by other leftist and identitarian organizations such as Black Voters Matter in supporting the violent anti-police cause.
In addition to apparent cop hatred, NGP was in the news recently for its "financial irregularities."
The Washington Free Beacon reported late last month that Georgia’s secretary of state has opened an investigation into possible improprieties behind the scenes of Abrams' organization.
NGP and the NGPAF have reportedly raised $54.7 million since 2020. Despite this flow of cash, Fox News Digital noted that NGP applied for and received a $482,000 Paycheck Protection Program loan in May 2020, despite having gathering $24.5 million in contributions and cash that year.
While stacking donations and grabbing COVID loans, its executive reportedly pocketed a pay raise of $69,345.
According to the Beacon, the organization also raised eyebrows with a "half-million-dollar consulting payment to a charity run in part by the brother of former New Georgia Project CEO Nsé Ufot, who was later fired for undisclosed reasons," as well as the claim that it paid zero payroll taxes in 2020.
