With an attack on Andy Ngo last month by the forces of Antifa in the streets of Portland, and Brian Clyde’s (self-professed Socialist) attack on the Dallas Courthouse in June, We have seen Socialist movements up their rhetoric and violence. The latest attack was when a man died last week while attacking an ICE detention facility in Washington State.
Willem Van Spronsen, a carpenter and musician from Seattle, was also a self-professed member of the leftist terror group Antifa. Spronsen, showed up outside the privately-owned facility for Immigration and Customs Enforcement at 4:00 a.m. Armed with a rifle and incendiary devices, he began to hurl the devices at vehicles, lighting one car on fire. He attempted to burn the building and a propane tank. Washington State Police engaged and killed Spronsen.
Two Democratic Presidential Candidates have condemned the violence, Andrew Yang and Joe Biden, both considered moderates, it is unclear when or if more candidates will condemn the attacks. Representatives Rashida Talib, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Ocasio Cortez refuse to condemn the violence. Many take their refusal to condemn the violence as a backing of it, some even calling Spronsen a “martyr.” When Cortez was approached about making a statement about the violence on Monday, she said a statement was forthcoming, Wednesday and still no statement. Cortez had called ICE facilities concentration camps in the past. making incendiary accusations against U.S. Border Patrol that they were forcing illegal aliens to drink out of the toilet. She is said to have even cried over an empty parking lot in order to garner sympathy for her campaign for open borders.
The liberal New York Times says in their article that Antifa is an organization to protect people from right-wing extremism, to promote an LGBTQ agenda. Antifa is a violent arm of the socialist party that operates under the guise of Antifascist, when is all actuality it is actually Anti-First Amendment. The New York Times even said the term did not originate until 1946, when in fact it started as Antifascita an organization of socialists who opposed fascism in the 1920s in Europe. Fascism is just socialism and nationalism combined together. Anti-Fascists are anti-nationalists, they are still socialists and communists but stand firmly against nationalism. Whereas Capitalists can be nationalists and not be a fascist, but this bastardized version of Antifa is not anti-fascists, they are anti-nationalists and anti-capitalistic. The same people participating in the Occupy Wallstreet anti-capitalistic protest are your anti-nationalists today.
Attempts were made to get comments from Antifa, with no one returning my calls, this reporters social media was attacked with spam as I tried to ask questions of self-professed members of Antifa about the incident.
