I said a few weeks ago that I would be making a concerted effort to hold the American media accountable in cases where it has either directly or indirectly led to violence and bloodshed. This is one of those cases. Tacoma, Washington:
“Police in Washington state say an armed man was shot and killed early Saturday after trying to attack a local Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention center. The Seattle Times reported that the unidentified man appeared outside of the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma with a rifle and threw incendiary devices at both the facility and nearby propane tanks, at one point setting a vehicle on fire.
Officers responded to the incident around 4 a.m. and called out to the man before shots were fired. It was not clear how many shots were fired or whether the man fired at police. The shooting took place hours after a rally in front of the detention center to protest planned mass deportation raids around the country. The Tacoma facility, which is run by the Department of Homeland Security, holds migrants pending deportation proceedings.
The 69-year-old armed man killed by Washington state police as he attacked a local Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention center Saturday sent a manifesto to friends the day before the assault in which he wrote “I am Antifa,” and was being lionized by members of the leftwing group as a “martyr.”
The group Seattle Antifascist Action described assailant Willem Van Spronsen a “good friend and comrade” who “took a stand against the fascist detention center in Tacoma” and “became a martyr who gave his life to the struggle against fascism.”
These people watch too many movies and their lives are too boring, so they pretend they’re battling “fascists” in the streets and saving America from Tyrant Trump. Unfortunately for them they weren’t alive during World War II, and so they must play Make Believe and tilt at windmills in order to satisfy their envy of prior generations.
The worst part of it is, there is a great insidious enemy that is oppressing and immiserating untold millions not only here in America but all around the world, only it’s called the Globalist Uniparty and the so-called “Anti-Fascists” ironically happen to be its unwitting foot soldiers and enforcers.
But the main point here is that this man was radicalized and spurred to violence by the U.S. media and its reckless propaganda:
“GEO Group, which runs the 1,575-bed Northwest Detention Center, in an email to The Associated Press said baseless accusations about how detainees are treated at its facilities “have led to misplaced aggression and a dangerous environment for our employees, whose safety is our top priority.“
Wonder where all those “baseless accusations” leading to all that “misplaced aggression” are coming from?
The media, of course.
The media radicalized this guy to attack an immigration detention center with dangerous explosives, where he was ultimately shot and killed by police.
The media believes it can say anything, no matter how dishonest, reckless or incendiary, and not be responsible for the real-world consequences of its viewers who actually believe the media’s lurid claims.
Who could have ever predicted that the media telling Americans that ICE is running a network of concentration camps where it tortures illegal immigrants would compel someone out there to go attack an ICE detention center?
The media itself knows its content is all propaganda and sensation, but lots of people out there don’t. There are people out there who hang on the media’s every word and believe everything they see on cable news.
You can’t just have the hyperbole turned up to 11 every single day. “Trump is a fascist! Trump is a Literal Nazi™! ICE is running death camps! America 2019 has become Nazi Germany!!!!!!!!”
People out there actually believe this stuff.
And some of those people not only believe the propaganda, but act on it.
After all, if you truly believed ICE was maintaining Nazi-style concentration camps, wouldn’t you think it’s not only appropriate but imperative that you storm those ICE detention centers with guns and firebombs and try to liberate them?
Just a couple of weeks ago, Shaun King, aka the Fake Black Guy, aka Talcum-X, tweeted this:
And you’re surprised about what happened in Tacoma, Washington?
No one should be surprised that this happened, and no one should be surprised when it happens again.
