Beware of the John Brown Gun Club

(1/2) > >>

iam4liberty:
The John Brown Gun Club has been in the news a lot recently.  It is positioned as a 'liberal alternative' to NRA affiliated gun clubs.  In actuality it is a front for ANTIFA associated terror groups.  This came front and center in the recent attack on the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma Washington.  Active JBGC member Emma Durutti (birth name Willem Van Spronse) tried to storm the steel reinforced concrete buildings of the facility with molotov cocktails and an AR-15.  The attack was quickly stopped by the facility guards and luckily no-one else was injured.  Emma made frequent appearances on CNN including their highly publicized United Shades of America program.  The Puget Sound chapter of the John Brown Gun Club, where Emma trained for the attack, released a statement praising it.

Be very catious of frequenting any "alternative" clubs like this especially in Washington, Oregon, and California.

Antifa lauds 'martyr' who attacked ICE detention center as manifesto circulates

In a three-page document posted on Seattle TV station KIRO’s website, Willem Van Spronsen cited popular left-wing historian Howard Zinn, said that “i am antifa,” criticized the Electoral College and accused the U.S. of running “concentration camps” on the border.

Willem Van Spronsen, 69, declares early on in his manifesto that “evil says concentration camps for folks deemed lesser are necessary. the handmaid of evil says the concentration camps should be more humane,” using a term usually reserved for Nazi Germany’s death camps, but introduced in the border-security debate last month by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York.

He also mocked people criticizing Ms. Ocasio-Cortez for intellectual sloppiness, referring to “these days of highly profitable detention/concentration camps and a battle over the semantics.”

Rest in Power, Will

He took direct action to protect traditionally marginalized and threatened communities. The rounding up of our neighbors into for-profit detention centers was not a semantics debate for Will, it was an abomination.

We are mourning and hope that in the days, weeks, and months ahead, people who knew and loved Will can find a way to grapple with his loss and honor his memory.

Liberals cheer as antifa violence escalates

In the early hours on Saturday, police in Tacoma, Wash., rushed to the local Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility. An armed man was firebombing the building and nearby vehicles. Police killed him in a shootout after he attempted to set off a large propane tank connected to the facility. Antifa social media accounts subsequently identified their fallen “comrade” as Willem Van Spronsen.

The underreported incident marks a new chapter in the return of armed left-wing terrorism to the United States. It also triggered a flash of memory in my mind: I had crossed paths with Van Spronsen in December, when a group of rifle-carrying antifa militiamen tried to prevent me from filming their protest outside Seattle City Hall.

Little did I know then that I would soon have a more immediate encounter with antifa violence. Two weeks ago, I was left hospitalized with a brain hemorrhage after a mob of mask-clad rioters beat and robbed me while I was covering a demonstration in downtown Portland, Ore. The attack, claimed by Rose City Antifa, was caught on videos that went viral online.

As shocking as my unprovoked beating was, I’m hardly the first to be cruelly beaten by antifa. I have been covering antifa since the days after the 2016 election, when Portlanders woke up to find that downtown had been ravaged by black-clad vandals and arsonists overnight. Since then, the militants have repeatedly brutalized the city’s population. They have learned from experience that city government and police lack the political will to protect citizens.

Though known for their hallmark masks and black uniforms, antifa isn’t a formal, centralized group. Its “members” operate as a loose grouping of militant Marxists and anarchists drawn from various autonomous far-left groups. Political violence is a feature, not a bug, of antifa, which believes itself to be in an existential struggle with latter-day fascism.

Thanks for the heads up, I never heard of this group, but I have heard that Zinn is the spiritual godfather of Antifa and the extremist left hate-America groups and celebrities such as Matt Damon (childhood neighbor of Zinn).  I live in Oregon and have not heard of the Hohn Brown Gun Club but sounds like something Antifa would do.  The really need to be labeled as a terrorist group and treated as such.

With so many congressman and Chief Law Enforcement Officers calling for it, it looks highly probable. The president's recent tweet is probably final sign.

Trump decries 'gutless' Antifa, says he's weighing declaring group major terror organization

President Donald Trump said Saturday that he is considering declaring the far-left Antifa activist group a terrorist organization, equating it with the MS-13 street gang amid reports of members physically attacking conservative demonstrators and journalists at rallies across the country.

"Consideration is being given to declaring ANTIFA, the gutless Radical Left Wack Jobs who go around hitting (only non-fighters) people over the heads with baseball bats, a major Organization of Terror (along with MS-13 & others). Would make it easier for police to do their job!" Trump tweeted.
...
Trump's tweet came days after Sens. Bill Cassidy, R-La.,and Ted Cruz, R-Texas, introduced non-binding legislation that would designate the group as a domestic terrorist organization.
