Democrats Call for Insurrection; Hilarity Ensues!

Well, here is Shaun King, who is a prominent Democrat.

“Willem Van Spronson just became the first martyr attempting to liberate imprisoned refugees from a for-profit detention center in Tacoma, Washington.”

Everything in that sentence is a lie. He was not attempting to liberate anyone, and these are not refugees.

“His hero was John Brown—the white abolitionist who led the raid on Harper’s Ferry in 1859.”

John Brown was an insurrectionist who was so crazy that not even freed slaves joined him.

“Beb-beb-beb-beb-beb! Where are my teeth?”

He killed the wrong people, he made everything worse, and then he got hanged. A perfect hero for leftists.

“This is what our country has come to.”

Okay, now Shaun? This is not our fault. Insurrectionists who attack detention centers are your fault.

“We are told that this is the final letter of Willem Van Spronson—who was shot and killed by law enforcement as he attempted an attack on a for-profit refugee detention center in Tacoma, Washington. It’s a beautiful, devastating, painful letter.”

No, it’s not all beautiful or devastating or painful. It is stupid.

“i have a father’s broken heart

“i have a broken down body

“and i have an unshakeable abhorrence of injustice

“that is what brings me here.”

He should’ve been shot to death just for writing that, Shaun.

“He wasn’t crazy—inaction is.”

We’ll get back to that in a minute.

“This is where Willem was murdered.”

So when the police kill a guy who’s throwing incendiary devices at detention centers, thus endangering the detainees, it’s murder. On the part of the police.

“This is where Willem was murdered over this weekend. His actions will be called terrorism and people will call him crazy, but neither are true. His mind was very clear. He is now ‘arm in arm’ with John Brown. These camps must be shut down.

“History has taught us that concentration camps should be liberated. We cannot and should not wait until 2020, with the hope that we defeat Trump, to free these children. We should liberate them NOW—by any means necessary.”

Shaun King doesn’t understand that the government views him as an insurrectionist. Guess what that means, Shaun? If you have been designated an insurrectionist, oh boy oh boy! I would not want to be you. I would want to be you under any circumstances, but calling for insurrection is not a good idea in the Trump era.
