In case you missed it, the fake black guy Shaun King was tweeting in support of Willem Van Spronsen, the old Antifa man who attacked the ICE facility with a rifle and firebombs.
He’s since deleted the tweets without explanation. Not sure if it was because someone told him the story should be buried instead of celebrated, or because he was afraid of all the people reporting him on Twitter for supporting terrorism.
“Willem Van Spronsen just became the first martyr attempting to liberate imprisoned refugees from a for-profit detention center in Tacoma, Washington,” King tweeted. “His hero was John Brown — the white abolitionists who led the raid on Harpers Ferry in 1859. This is what our country has come to.”
“He wasn’t crazy – inaction is,” King said of Van Spronsen. He went on to call the manifesto a “beautiful, devastating letter.”
The manifesto was in actual fact a horrible collection of clichéd leftist slogans.
Of course, all of the Antifa on Twitter and everywhere else are celebrating this, but other than the Daily Stormer, Breitbart and RT, Shaun King is the only journalist I’ve seen talking about it. So I suspect the tweets were deleted at the request of his bosses at The Intercept (he’s formerly of the NY Daily News, but apparently he’s at The Intercept now). There’s clearly a blackout on the attack, and he was messing that up by praising the terrorist.
He’s still got some pretty edgy stuff undeleted though.
People have asked me if I’m calling for violence to rescue these children.
I’m calling for intervention.
I’m calling for an expedited response.
I’m calling for something more than crossing our fingers that Trump is defeated. https://t.co/3Mcawl1PIG

If you were a public figure and said something along those lines following the Brenton Tarrant event, you would have been visited by the FBI. They wouldn’t have arrested you. It’s not illegal to call for terrorism in a vague manner, technically (at least in America). But you would have been subjected to harassment by the cops, absolutely.
But it’s a different story with Antifa, as we are very well aware.
