ANTIFA Radical Killed After Attacking ICE Center in Tacoma With Molotov Cocktails, Sited AOC Rhetoric in Manifesto



Willem Van Spronsen  went  to the Northwest Detention Center, the holding facility for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Tacoma Washington,   armed   with a rifle and incendiary devices,  and ended up being killed by police,  Seattle Times reported.

The alleged (now deceased)  terrorist last year drew headlines when  the  68-year-old man wrapped his arms around a police officer’s throat and shoulders in an apparent attempt to free another protester, during a protest by radical open boarders leftists last year.

Police said Van Spronsen tossed lit objects at vehicles and buildings, causing one car fire, and unsuccessfully tried to ignite a propane tank.

Officers were called by an ICE employee who saw the rifle. Soon after they arrived, officers reported “shots fired,” said Tacoma police spokeswoman Loretta Cool, although it is unclear who fired first or if Van Spronsen fired at all. The Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office classified his death as a homicide, Seattle Times reported.

The four responding officers all opened fire and then took cover, uninjured. After medical aid arrived, officers found Van Spronsen dead.

According to his manifesto, a copy of which was obtained by Jack Posobiec, an independent journalist  Van Spronsen was armed with an AR-15 and stated, “I am Antifa”.

The manifesto is a rambling advocacy of  communist politics  mixed with hysteria about “concentration camps,” which clearly suggests that Van Spronsen was radicalized by fringe rhetoric from the likes of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who has repeatedly called ICE detention centers “concentration camps”.  He also attacks several high profile billionaires including Trump in his manifesto.

ANTIFA, the supposed “anti fascist” group has been seen recently at protests wearing “smash ICE” t-shirts, with violent images of officers with bloody faces.

Van Spronsen was a member of a left wing group called Red Neck Revolt, which is a branch of ANTIFA ;  a pro gun left wing group that pays homage to John Brown. Several members have been arrested for threatening Trump supporters and their children with fire arms.  Independent journalist Jack Posobiec pointed out that two months ago CNN ran a special report glorifying Red Neck Revolt. Below is a clip of CNN literally promoting a terrorist organization.


Also over the weekend, sever radical open-boarders ANTIFA protesters flew Mexican flags at 2 detention centers. The black clad protesters have become radicalized in recent months by the rhetoric of far left Democrat congresswoman Cortez and Ilan Omar.


A new internal Democrat poll in swing districts released on Sunday showed that socialist Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) are extremely unpopular and that they may cost the Democratic Party the presidency and the House in 2020, according to The Daily Wire.

Ocasio-Cortez was recognized by 74% of voters in the poll; 22% had a favorable view,”  Daily Wire explained  “Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota was recognized by 53% of the voters; 9%  had a favorable view.”

    You should edit this to reflect the irony that the rifle was apparently an AR15

    Wow way to stay unbiased. Terrible article. Wish there were more facts and less bullshit. I also agree that an edit is in order, preferably to focus on this story instead of rambling on to your brainwashed followers. Hope some are smart enough to see through the bullshit. Thx

    So to recap, then, there is no evidence Antifa had anything to do with the bombing. A member did, but no evidence the group did. AOC and Omar may be nationally unpopular, but both still poll well in their districts. You cite zero evidence that either one will drag down Democrats.
    So you said pretty much nothing.
