[Ed. – We have met the enemy, and they are them.]
As the terrorist who attacked the ICE facility “and the many other heroic comrades before him have made clear, there are many ways to fight back against a violent fascist regime. Perhaps it’s time for more of us to put our thinking caps on.” This line wasn’t disgorged by an Antifa group, but by Teen Vogue “labor columnist” and NPR correspondent Kim Kelly. Kelly likened the now-deceased terrorist (shot by police), Willem Van Spronsen, to WWII partisans who fought the Nazis.
She’s not alone. Columnist and Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King called the 69-year-old Van Spronsen the “first martyr attempting to liberate imprisoned refugees,” implying that he was like John Brown, the abolitionist who led the Harpers Ferry raid in 1859.
Also, incredibly, Van Spronsen — a self-identified Antifa member who attacked the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, Washington, on Saturday armed with an AR-15 rifle and incendiary devices — “appears to have been part of a May 5 episode of CNN’s United Shades of America with W. Kamau Bell,” reports Fox News.
