Willem Van Spronsen is a 69-year-old member of Antifa, a “domestic terrorist organization which is involved in violent attacks by the group targeting supporters of Donald Trump.” He was throwing firebombs at an ICE facility in Washington State and vehicles in the surrounding area. Spronsen was shot and killed in his violent and senseless act, but he left behind a manifesto titled, “I am Antifa,” to get his point of hatred across as he also labeled himself as “a martyr.”
The majority of the manifesto was a poem and a story of his childhood. It was the last part which led authorities to believe he knew he was not going to come out of this alive. Many Trump supporters just believe this as a suicide letter of an act of hatred. The last part of the manifesto read,
“I’m a black and white thinker.
detention camps are an abomination.
I’m not standing by.
I really shouldn’t have to say any more than this.
I set aside my broken heart and I heal the only way I know how- by being useful.
I efficiently compartmentalize my pain…
and I joyfully go about this work.
(to those burdened with the wreckage from my actions, I hope that you will make the best use of that
to my comrades:
I regret that I will miss the rest of the revolution.
thank you for the honor of having me in your midst.
giving me space to be useful, to feel that I was fulfilling my ideals, has been the spiritual pinnacle of my
doing what I can to help defend my precious and wondrous people is an experience too rich to describe.
my trans comrades have transformed me, solidifying my conviction that we will be guided to a dreamed-of future by those most marginalized among us today. I have dreamed it so clearly that I have no regret
for not seeing how it turns out. thank you for bringing me so far along.
I am Antifa, I stand with comrades around the world who act from the love of life in every permutation.
comrades who understand that freedom means real freedom for all and a life worth living.
keep the faith!
all power to the people!
don’t let your silly government agencies spend money “investigating”
this one. I was radicalized in a civics class at 13 when we were taught about the electoral college. it was at
that point that I decided that the status quo might be a house of cards. further reading confirmed in the
positive. I highly recommend reading!
I am not affiliated with any organization, I have disaffiliated from any organizations who disagree with
my choice of tactics.
the semi-automatic weapon I used was a cheap, home built unregistered “ghost” ar15, had six
magazines. I strongly encourage comrades and incoming comrades to arm themselves. we are now
responsible for defending people from the predatory state. ignore the laws of arming yourself if you
have the luxury, I did.”
The Tacoma Police Department put out this statement on the incident, “Van Spronsen was armed with a rifle and incendiary devices when he launched his assault on the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma around 4 a.m. Saturday. Employees reported he was throwing ‘incendiary devices’ and setting vehicles on fire and the first officers on the scene said he was wearing a sachet and carrying flares.
Van Spronsen was trying to ignite a propane tank when he was confronted by the officers, who opened fire. The Pierce County Medical Examiner’s office said he died of multiple gunshot wounds.
Friends of Spronsen received the manifesto in the mail along with letters which “Just said goodbye.” One of his friends told The Times, “He was ready to end it.”
To think, all of this hatred and all of this senseless violence was carried out by this terrorist who he claims was inspired by none other than AOC to attack an ICE facility, according to his manifesto. Go figure, AOC along with other dirty Democrats are inspiring hate and is doing nothing more than standing in the way of President Trump and his administration to “drain the swamp.” But the question is how much more stupidity must we witness before all this over and we can rest saying, “There are no more corrupt officials in office!” The answer is, not much longer, as long as President Trump is in charge.
