This is my shocked face.

What were the odds? The maniac who tried to burn down and blow up an ICE detention center in Tacoma yesterday (and wound up being “iced” by the police) was an Antifa member. And we’re not talking about someone vaguely “connected” to the movement. Willem Van Spronsen proudly proclaimed himself to be Antifa. Also, this was not his first run-in with the law at that same detention center. (Seattle Times)

A protest outside the federal immigration detention center in Tacoma last year drew headlines when a 68-year-old man wrapped his arms around a police officer’s throat and shoulders in an apparent attempt to free another protester.

When police got the man into handcuffs, they found a collapsible baton and knife in his pocket, leading to criminal charges.

Early Saturday morning, that man, Willem Van Spronsen of Vashon Island, returned to the Northwest Detention Center, the holding facility for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, this time armed with a rifle and incendiary devices, according to Tacoma police.

Police said Van Spronsen tossed lit objects at vehicles and buildings, causing one car fire, and unsuccessfully tried to ignite a propane tank.

Perhaps not surprisingly, a number of left-wing nutjobs were immediately singing Van Spronsen’s praises, identifying him as a “hero.” The Daily Caller has a list, but here’s one account that definitely seemed impressed.

And, like nearly all politically driven maniacs, Van Spronson had a manifesto, of course. It’s pretty long and incoherent, but here’s a photo of it.

The media is still treating this as almost a local news story, and we’re not seeing much of anything in the way of “deep analysis” of the attack.
