Why Trump must deal with Antifa now, or risk bloodbath later on

Willem Van Spronsen, 69, left, was a member of antifa and the radical John Brown Gun Club, some of whose members can be seen at right.

In case you haven’t heard, antifa is celebrating its first American martyr.

This is a big deal. Every communist revolutionary movement needs a martyr.

But if you rely on mainstream news, you are probably unaware of what happened on Saturday because there’s been a virtual news blackout by the major media networks.

We’ve been told nothing about the background of the guy who tried to firebomb an ICE detention center Saturday in Tacoma, Washington. Nobody in Congress or the White House is talking about it, either.

On Republican congressional Twitter accounts, you’ll see tweet after tweet on the usual Washington political drivel. Nothing about the 69-year-old domestic terrorist Willem Van Spronsen, a resident of Vashon Island, proud member of antifa and the notorious John Brown Gun Club.

Van Spronsen’s ties to antifa have been completely covered up by the media.

Meanwhile the news cycle is totally taken over by the mindless back and forth between President Trump and four female members of the Democrat “squad” in Congress. Even Trump has been curiously silent about the domestic terrorist attack that took place in Tacoma.

Van Spronsen was killed in an apparent shootout with ICE agents, who confronted him as he approached the migrant detention center with a semi-automatic rifle and started throwing homemade firebombs at vehicles and a propane tank.

The incident took place as legions of left-wing activists were protesting pre-announced ICE raids designed to apprehend about 2,000 illegal aliens in up to 10 cities.

“This could have resulted in the mass murder of staff and detainees housed at the facility had he been successful at setting the tank ablaze,” said Shawn Fallah, who heads the ICE Office of Professional Responsibility, in a statement. “These are the kinds of incidents that keep you up at night.”

Antifa is eulogizing Van Spronsen as a hero and a “martyr for the cause.”

Van Spronsen was a member of the John Brown Gun Club, a communist paramilitary organization based in Puget Sound. I can remember, not that long ago, when the presence of a communist paramilitary organization on U.S. soil would have been considered a serious crime. How times have changed.

And he even left a manifesto. Our media is usually very interested in letters and manifestos left by terrorists. In this case, though, they exhibit zero curiosity.

Again, you have to search Twitter to find the goods on Mr. Van Spronsen, the antifa martyr.

This is the third violent attack by antifa in less than a month. Just a couple of weeks ago, conservative journalist Andy Ngo was beaten by antifa thugs at a rally in Portland, Oregon, suffering a brain hemorrhage.

It’s about to get ugly, folks, especially if the FBI and local law enforcement continue to stand down against antifa anarchists.

According to the website Far Left Watch, which tracks radicalized left-wing groups, antifa-affiliated radicals have been raising money for arms in preparation for an all-out revolution.

Check out the tweet by Daniel Horowitz at Conservative Review:

The firebombing incident in Tacoma illustrates why Trump should never have announced weeks in advance that he planned to have ICE do a roundup of illegals. This gave antifa activists time to plan nationwide protests, and a near-tragic terrorist attack.

If you are going to do a police raid, preserving the element of surprise is critical to the success of the operation. You go in during the middle of the night and haul out the lawbreaker in handcuffs. You don’t announce it. By announcing the raid, Trump gave the illegal migrants a chance to secure a hideout, find lawyers and get advice from Soros-backed immigrant rights groups. Not to mention the possibility of a well-planned violent reprisal, jeopardizing the safety of ICE agents.

It makes you wonder if Trump really ever planned to arrest 2,000 illegal aliens, or if this really was, as some Democrats charged, just a political stunt aimed at placating his base. And why only 2,000 when there are estimates of up to 30 million illegals now living in the U.S.?

If Trump doesn’t up his game on immigration, and if the economy dips a bit next year, I have real concerns about the 2020 elections.

But there is an even bigger concern than election results.

What happens if nothing is done over the next year to rein in this violent communist movement led by antifa?

It is my belief that the radical wing that now controls the Democrat Party wants to have antifa armed, trained and ready to conduct some serious “house cleaning” after they are finally rid of Donald Trump.

You see, Trump is the least of their worries. It’s the fact that we still have enough Americans willing to elect someone like Trump that fuels their hatred. They want to make sure that never happens again. They need to punish Trump supporters.

Once Democrats retake the White House and the Justice Department is once again headed by someone like Loretta Lynch or Eric Holder, antifa thugs will be unleashed on Trump-supporting Americans in cities across the USA. Bank on it. They will be hunting scalps. If antifa is allowed to train and grow its ranks, it will happen, whether in 2020, 2024 or 2028. Their masters demand it. They crave civil war.

It’s no coincidence that AOC and the other radicals on the “squad” refused to condemn Saturday’s near-tragic antifa attack. Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, D-Minnesota, won’t even condemn al-Qaida or the Muslim Brotherhood.

We hear a lot about hate, haters, and hate groups in America today.

But the vigilance against hate only applies to folks who disagree with the left.

If you articulate a conservative opinion on immigration, about a particular religion, or abortion, you will be declared a hater, racist, xenophobe, Islamophobe, and possibly have your social-media accounts suspended.

But when an actual act of hate is carried out by one of their own, the progressive left who dominate the mainstream media can be counted on to suddenly lose their voices. They have nothing to say about Willem Van Spronsen. Nothing to write.

Tacoma, Washington, was just the latest example of this.

Many Americans say they’re not interested in engaging in culture wars. I have news for them. The culture wars are interested in you, and these wars are quickly escalating from name-calling into violent outbursts by an increasingly radicalized leftist element. Are you ready? Congress sure isn’t. And I’m not convinced that the FBI, Justice Department or your local law-enforcement agency is, either.

  1. “Many Americans say they’re not interested in engaging in culture wars.”
    History is replete with examples of peoples who were not interested in engaging in cultural wars. All one must do is look at Romania, Germany, or Holland among others. There were only a handful of patriots who were willing to stand against the evil of their day. I suspect, bravado and chest pounding aside, that most Americans will capitulate to the left just to maintain their life style and bank accounts.
    There are a few patriots still standing, but from what I can ascertain most of these are 50-70 years old. There also appears to be a large number of leftist in this age group as well. There are some 20-40 year old’s but most in this age group are apathetic or given over to the left’s ideology and will fellow along in lockstep.
    Unless there is an intervention by God we’re in deep doo-doo.
    We are living in Romans 1 times were many are “Professing to be wise, they became fools (v 1:22)”. “For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature (v 1:26)”. 
    Be prepared. If there is a civil war it will be costly in more than one way.
    In the end nothing will return to “normal” because normal will have to be re-created.
    Have a plan, the enemy does. “A Psalm of David. Deliver me, O LORD, from evil men; Preserve me from violent men, Who plan evil things in their hearts; They continually gather together for war (Psa 140:1-2)”.
    My plan, may it be God’s will, “A Psalm of David. Blessed be the LORD my Rock, Who trains my hands for war, And my fingers for battle— My lovingkindness and my fortress, My high tower and my deliverer, My shield and the One in whom I take refuge, Who subdues my people under me (Psa 144:1-2)”.


  2. Ditto to the comment above. And this as well. The American Spirit must not be quenched by the majority of those that wish to be connected electronically. We must come together, face to face, and become prepared. Without any resistance to these thugs they will only empower themselves and escalate this situation to “Civil War”. We must form our posse to be ready to protect the 1st amendment and those that wish to assemble and speak what their cause may be. Very complicated. Agree that antifa (lowercase on purpose) is a federal problem that requires a federal response. We have the firepower to combat them but that would only put ourselves in jeopardy. Stay vigilant and ever ready, watch your six.


  3. Those seeking to violently enforce their own rules that are at variance with the U.S. Constitution regarding free speech are engaging in insurrection. The essence of insurrection is violent challenge to legitimate authority, a challenge to the Constitution itself.

    Article I, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution refers to the president’s power and responsibility to “suppress Insurrections.” That makes Antifa a military problem, not a law enforcement problem.

    It means the government has the power and responsibility to send armed personnel to hunt them down and kill them along with quislings and collaborators among college administrators and local officials.


  4. What a paradox! A fanatic, overtly Fascist organization utilizing Sturmabteilung tactics titles itself “Anti-Fascist.”


  5. The Democrats attack on America is in full force.They have shed their skins of patriots and now don the uniform of the Socialists Democrats. ie Nazis.


  6. I can just imagine the hoopla had this been some survivalist and their gun club. It would be 24/7 in your face about how evil and racist the right-wingers are.


  7. Poor AntiFa. They practice the group-poses they learn watching manga and they use their student loans and welfare checks to buy notoriously shoddy weapons. IF they ever got their wish, the true Patriots of America would clean their clocks in 5 minutes. The problem is that AntiFa are our kids (or our neighbors kids) and we’d prefer not to be force to defend ourselves against them.

  8. Let them begin their “hunting” for Trump supporters Leo..there are literally MILLIONS of us Patriots out there that would love nothing more than for these punks to begin trying to conduct this crap on a larger scale. The gloves come off, our Ghillie suits come on – and we retired combat Vets (real Combat) veterans get to rally up and go hunting. Stop wringing your hands Leo and start encouraging your readers to do what they should have been doing years ago – preparing to defend themselves, their loved ones and their communities. By the way – how successful was that pathetic crack-head coward up there in Tacoma? I wouldn’t whine too much about the pole smoking little “reporter” Ngo – he wins the Gump award for “Stupid is as Stupid does”..Your blog does a good job of highlighting the fact that no Mainstream Media outlet wants to mention a word about this Tacoma Rube – however, it can do without so much of the hand-wringing worry wort part ok? State it straight, then denigrate these pathetic little cheese weasels by pointing out how stupidly chickenschitt they are. (By the way – the sky was falling with BLM years ago after they had crazy members kill a couple dozen Police Officeers in Texas and elsewhere around the nation). Remember that Leo? Ever heard of “New Black Panther Party”? So..un-knot your drawers there Leo and come at this again with a more level headed approach. And remember one thing, this is the motto of THOUSANDS of my fellow Army SF Operators….”Yea tho I walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Death, I shall Fear NO Evil – For God has made me THE Baddest SOB in the Valley”…Ok?

    1. History teaches us that it’s a mistake to underestimate one’s enemy. Rule number one of warfare: Know your enemy, respect your enemy’s abilities, or more often than not you will end up being defeated by said enemy.


    2. If you just want right-wing chest thumping without insights into the enemy, there are plenty of other blogs which provide that. My role is different.
