Blood has been spilled for the cause of Antifa, and they’re celebrating the man who attacked a government facility as a “martyr.”
An attack on an ICE detention facility that houses illegal immigrants prior to deportation was attacked by a man with a rifle and incendiary devices before being shot and killed by police. The facility in Tacoma, Washington, had been the site of protests against upcoming ICE raids prior to the attack.
The shooting took place hours after a rally in front of the detention center to protest planned mass deportation raids around the country. The Tacoma facility, which is run by the Department of Homeland Security, holds migrants pending deportation proceedings. The detention center has also held immigration-seeking parents separated from their children under President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy, an effort meant to deter illegal immigration.
GEO Group, which runs the 1,575-bed Northwest Detention Center, in an email to The Associated Press said baseless accusations about how detainees are treated at its facilities “have led to misplaced aggression and a dangerous environment for our employees, whose safety is our top priority. Violence of any kind against our employees and property will not be tolerated. We are thankful for the quick and brave action by the Tacoma Police Department, which prevented innocent lives from being endangered.”
As OAN’s Jack Posobiec reported, Antifa members are taking to social media to praise Willem Van Spronsen, 69, as a martyr.
To be clear:
A 69-year-old Antifa terrorist attacked an ICE facility in Tacoma with a rifle and incendiary devices
He was shot dead by police while trying to set ICE vehicles on fire
Multiple Antifa groups are now praising him as a martyr to their cause

This is the state of our fight against those who claim to be anti-fascist while utilizing fascist techniques to spread their vitriol.

Organizations like Antifa, which are perceived to be individual terrorist cells while demonstrating a sophistication and coordination that belies perceptions, are becoming a real danger in America. They’re a danger to the people around them and after today, it’s clear they’re a danger to themselves. The odd part is they don’t really have a central message. Claiming to be anti-fascist in a society that generally opposes fascism requires them to place the fascist label on anything with which they disagree.
As independent journalist Andy Ngo and others learned a couple of weeks ago, that labeling can be placed on just about anything or anyone.
But this isn’t just a challenge of a group of young people wearing masks and causing havoc. The problem goes to the top of the Democratic Party as progressives continue to spread the lies that fuel groups like Antifa. Whether it’s calling migrant detention centers “concentration camps” or demanding violence against supporters of President Trump, Democrats on Capitol Hill and in government offices around the country pretend to be for law and order while riling up the masses to act like Antifa.
Today, there was another victim. He’s being called a martyr.
The continued rise of Antifa is a serious threat to more than just law and order. Their blanket labeling of anything that’s not radically progressive being fascist is a threat to rational thought of young Americans who may view these people as heroes.
