It’s Going Down: On Willem Van Spronsen & His Final Statement

If you were wondering whether Antifa was going to embrace the domestic terrorist who was killed while trying to firebomb the ICE facility in Washington, the answer is yes.

It’s Going Down:

Statement from CrimethInc. on the recent death of Willem Van Spronsen, who was killed by Tacoma police after attempting to set fire to buses at the Northwest Detention Facility in Tacoma, Washington. Includes a written statement from Spronsen.

On July 13, Willem Van Spronsen was killed by police while apparently taking action to disable the fleet of buses that serve the Northwest Detention Center, a private immigration detainment facility. His final statement, reproduced below, conveys that he was acting in response to the continuous raids and deportations carried out by Immigration Customs and Enforcement (ICE). His action occurred on the one-year anniversary of a hunger strike inside the Northwest Detention Center and an encampment outside. You can read a list of other acts of resistance that have occurred inside the Northwest Detention Center here.

We understand why Willem Van Spronsen decided to give his life to interrupt the violence that is perpetrated against undocumented people in the United States every day.

It is not hyperbole to say that the ICE raids are targeting our friends and neighbors, people who have lived and worked alongside us for years or even decades. The vulnerability of long-term undocumented people as a hyper-exploitable class has helped billionaires like Donald Trump to profit even more than they could have by legal means. To put the icing on the cake, capitalists then turn to the other workers they are exploiting and tell them that the poverty and misfortunes they experience are the fault of those who are poorer and more oppressed than them. It’s hard to imagine a more cynical strategy. …

In this regard, the Jewish people who are carrying out blockades against ICE are engaging in rational efforts to prevent the recurrence of the same unthinkable injustices that were perpetrated against their ancestors—just as Willem Van Spronsen, who grew up in the wake of World War II, made the rational decision that the time had come to fight the rise of fascism just as people did in the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s. …

Willem Van Spronsen chose to think for himself. He took personal responsibility and did what he could to put an end to what he recognized as injustice. He did not use the Nuremburg defense to excuse his actions the way that every police officer and prison guard does.
In those regards, what he did was heroic.”

According to Crimethinc, Willem Van Spronsen is a hero who made a rational decision in choosing to embrace violence against ICE officers. It’s Going Down has shared their moving tribute to him.

What do you think The New York Times will have to say about it? How about The Daily Beast? What about The Huffington Post? Oh wait … we all already know the answer. Willem Van Spronsen was a “woke” domestic terrorist so he is just “a man” who lashed out at ICE. He wasn’t inspired by the heated open borders rhetoric of the Democrats

  1. This is a declaration of War. And Antifa will pay for their traitorous activities, as Enemies of the State.

  2. Genetic White Liberals. Will fight to their last breath to become a stateless, hated White minority.

    Lets make a White ethnostate and invite them to it.

    • I’m reasonably sure that about 95% of them would be frenzied supporters of whatever gives them status.

      Control the sources of status, ie social approval, ie the media in the modern era, and you can mold most of them into whatever you like.

      That’s why democracy is a farce. Unless you’re electing the people who determine WHO IS ELECTABLE — media moguls, movie producers, writers, professors, reporters, news anchors and their masters — you’ve got no chance.

  3. Notice that praise for the Jewish comrades also actively trying to destroy our society was slipped into the statement. They’re now openly bragging about their deceit and treason. Jews historically tend to support and participate in revolutionary movements. No wonder they were kicked out of over a hundred countries.

    • Rich – yup. I noticed.

      The mass of White Normies won’t do a THING to stop our displacement and eventual extermination. We are the last of the White Blood Cells – trying to fight the (((Civilizational Cancer))). We are simply being overwhelmed. So be it.

      • They want us demoralized and fatalistic. How much worse is it than the USSR was and yet it fell?

  4. Have you done a study of the madman John Brown, HW? This fellow Willem Von Screw-Loose obviously admired him.

      • I’m fastly becoming more and more impressed by your historical knowledge, Mr. Wallace. Very few know, at least in my experience, that “John Brown’s Body,” or “John Brown’s Song” was the Yankee army’s precursor to Unitarian Julia Ward Howe’s “Battle Hymn of the Republic.” In any case, the sainted John Brown had to be demoted to a mere John Baptist Brown to make way for the coming of the Lord and Savior of the black Israelite, namely “Honest Abe Lincoln” himself. In the words of “John Brown’s Song,” I think that latter was something like “the Christ that was to be.” Or something like that. This is all typical for the heretical Yankee.

  5. They support their martyrs. Unlike white nationalist who abandon their comrades when they go to prison, because muh optics

  6. This fool would have been an enthusiastic member of Stalin’s, Mao’s, or Pol Pot’s murder squads. He and his ilk were responsible for maybe 100 million deaths in the 20th century.

  7. Interesting how these fools attack capitalists, yet serve the goals of those capitalists by opening the border for cheap labor. I recall a quote from Oswald Spengler: “There is no proletarian, not even a communist, movement that has not operated in the interests of money, in the directions indicated by money, and for the time permitted by money — and that without the idealist amongst its
    leaders having the slightest suspicion of the fact.”

    • The difference is Antifa really does have capitalist sponsors whereas with 20th century revolutionary movements that was a slander and a lie.
