Top Dem Shaun King props up dead Antifa terrorist as a martyr, promotes his call to arms manifesto

As the media have been busy breaking into hysterical rants over President Donald Trump’s recent hash of boorish but otherwise benign trash-talking tweets, leading members of the increasingly radicalized left have been praising and promoting left-wing terrorism.

Take notorious race-baiter Shaun King, a co-founder of Justice Democrats, the radically far-left PAC responsible for propping up socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Following a failed terror attack over the weekend on an U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention facility in Tacoma, Washington, by a far-left extremist reportedly inspired by AOC and armed with an AR-15 rifle, flares and multiple Molotov cocktails, King praised that same terrorist.

Willem Van Spronsen just became the first martyr attempting to liberate imprisoned refugees from a for-profit detention center in Tacoma, Washington,” he tweeted Monday morning. “His hero was John Brown — the white abolitionist who led the raid on Harpers Ferry in 1859.”

The deceased man whom he wrote glowingly of — Willem Van Spronsen — was an Antifa-affiliated terrorist who, besides setting a car near the detention facility on fire Saturday, reportedly threw “incendiary devices” (Molotov cocktails) at it. Had the facility caught fire, the lives of reportedly up to 1575 illegal aliens would have been put at grave risk.

King reportedly deleted his tweets early Tuesday afternoon, but a saved archive of them may be accessed here.

Not only did he label Spronsen (who in reality is a terrorist) a “martyr,” but he enthusiastically shared the man’s “final letter” — which was in fact a disturbing manifesto that calls for his fellow left-wing activists to arm themselves and take action against the government.

I strongly encourage comrades and incoming comrades to arm themselves. We are now responsible for defending people from the predatory state. Ignore the law in arming yourself if you have the luxury, I did,” it reads.

What Spronsen wrote is arguably no different than the propaganda put out by international terrorist groups like ISIS. Yet this “final letter,” as King has called it, is currently trending on Twitter, not that anybody who either works at Twitter or works in the mainstream media cares.

If you pull up CNN chief media correspondent Brian Stelter’s Sunday evening and Monday evening newsletters, you’ll see him kvetching endlessly about Trump’s boorish tweets but saying nothing — absolutely nothing — about the left-wing terrorism being promoted on social media.

Granted, this should come as no surprise given that CNN — one of the most well-known “news” networks on Earth — had previously reportedly glorified Spronsen.

According to Fox News, he appeared on the May 5th episode of CNN’s “United States of America” special with far-left comedian and activist W. Kamau Bell.

“The heavily promoted CNN show featured Bell explaining the ‘Redneck Revolt,’ which he identified as gun-toting liberals who defend the Second Amendment and seek to battle the ‘alt-right’ and neo-Nazis,” Fox reported Monday. “Bell called them ‘good guys,’ going to a gun range with members and even questioning why ‘more white people’ don’t share their viewpoints.”

One of the men featured on the CNN special appears to be Van Spronsen.


To be fair, when this sketch aired, CNN had been unaware that one of the group’s members would go on to carry out a terrorist attack. However, now that a terrorist attack has occurred, the network has refused to condemn the attack, its participants and this particular group.

CNN and its peers in the demonstrably left-wing media have also refused to provide even a scintilla of coverage regarding the left-wing terrorism being promoted on social media by not only King but a plethora of other figures and individuals.

Here’s just a sliver of it (*LANGUAGE WARNING):

Why exactly the rise of left-wing terrorism and extremism isn’t important to the allegedly non-biased media remains unclear. But thankfully for those Americans concerned about this dangerous trend, independent journalists and reporters have been on the job, including Ian Miles Cheong of Human Events, the folks at BizPac Review and Tim Pool:
