Not only did an Antifa terrorist die while committing an act of left-wing political violence against a government facility, but all of his Antifa buddies are praising him as a hero.
He had a record for assaulting a police officer, and for violating an restraining order after a domestic violence dispute.
From the News Tribune:
The man who was shot and killed by Tacoma police while allegedly staging an attack at a Tacoma immigrant detention center has been identified.
The Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the man killed at the Northwest Detention Center as Willem Van Spronsen, 69, of Vashon Island.
Police were called to the center at 4 a.m. Saturday after an employee at the facility spotted a man with a rifle. The center holds migrants waiting for hearings and deportations.
Van Spronsen was allegedly throwing incendiary devices at cars and buildings, tried to explode a propane tank on the site and exchanged gunfire with police.
Police later located Van Spronsen. He had died on the scene.
Here’s the scumbags praising the violence:

Willem Van Spronsen, a comrade, a martyr. Presente! He loved the people, fought for what he believed in and died in the struggle. I’m glad no one else was killed. There needs to be an investigation... https://t.co/QazooFq3Ud— Bruce Wilkinson (@bwildleaf) July 14, 2019

Now that’s a lot of people praising political violence on the left… I’m sure the mainstream media will run to cover it, right? Riiiight.
So three of the above scumbags deleted their tweets. But we have screenshots!!!
Oh no, sorry scumbags!!!
And for the rest of the tweets, if you see one that looks like it has been deleted, alert me at @soopermexican on twitter… I may just have a screenshot for the rest of them too!
