Republican Headquarters in North Carolina Firebombed; Is Democrats’ Violent Rhetoric to Blame?

Last night, the Republican Party headquarters in Orange County, North Carolina was firebombed, presumably by a group of Democrats:

Hillsborough police said somebody threw a bottle of flammable liquid through the window of Orange County’s GOP headquarters, setting supplies and furniture ablaze.

Fortunately, no one was injured or killed, apparently because the premises were unoccupied at the time of the attack. The fire gutted the Republican headquarters:



It is rather ironic that Democrats have been wringing their hands over “violence” supposedly incited by Donald Trump, but, as happens in every election cycle, any actual violence is perpetrated by Democrats. Those who attacked the GOP headquarters left this spray-painted message on the wall of an adjacent building:


So the firebombers had internalized the smears that prominent Democrats and Democratic journalists have leveled against Donald Trump and the GOP in this election cycle.

The firebombing probably was not committed by marginal, uneducated people. Orange County is the wealthiest county in North Carolina. It is heavily Democratic, with Democrats and independents outnumbering Republicans 5-1. The county is home to the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, and Duke University is just outside the county’s boundary. So left-wing students or professors could have been involved.

Democrats perpetrate this sort of violence in every election cycle. They should be caught and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
