Man Who Attacked ICE Facility Wrote in Manifesto: “I Am Antifa”

Fact checked
ICE firebomber confirmed as Antifa domestic terrorist

The man who attempted to firebomb an ICE facility in Washington State released a manifesto before the attack stating, “I am Antifa.”

69-year-old Willem Van Spronsen was shot dead by police after he threw Molotov cocktails at the building and nearby cars on Saturday morning.

According to a copy of his manifesto obtained by Jack Posobiec, the attack was motivated by opposition to “concentration camps” in America.

Is it clear that Van Spronsen was radicalized by dangerous rhetoric from so-called “progressives” on the left, who have ramped up their inflammatory rhetoric against ICE recently.

On Sunday, an Antifa group that Van Spronsen belonged to appeared to condone his actions by posting a message of support on their Facebook page. The post in question has been archived here. reports: The rest of the manifesto is a rambling advocacy of identity politics mixed with hysteria about “concentration camps,”

At one point in the manifesto, Van Spronsen thanks his “trans comrades” and explains that he was armed with a semi-automatic weapon, suggesting he clearly planned to commit a massacre.

The Antifa gun club that Van Spronsen attended also locked its Twitter account down following the revelations.

As Posobiec highlights, “Two months ago CNN ran a story promoting the Tacoma Redneck Revolt chapter of Antifa,” of which Van Spronsen was a member.

The revelation that Van Spronsen considered himself to be an Antifa member will increase pressure on authorities to officially declare the group a domestic terrorist organization.

Back in July 2017, the Department of Homeland Security in New Jersey officially listedAntifa as a domestic terrorist organization after a rash of violent attacks by the group targeting supporters of Donald Trump.


  1. Somehow white conservative men who own guns will become the villains from this story. Watch.

  2. Let us pray, that
    Van Spronsen is one of the many to come & be terminated with extreme prejudice …
    May you rot in Hell, beyond eternity !
