While everyone is sick and tired of this presidential campaign, some people have really gone off the reservation. So much so, they resorted to hurling firewater at their political enemies.
Hillsborough police said somebody threw a bottle of flammable liquid through the window of Orange County’s GOP HQ, setting supplies and furniture ablaze.
A swastika and the words “Nazi Republicans get out of town or else” were spray painted on the side of an adjacent building. No damage estimates were available.
“The firebombing of a local political headquarters in Orange County is clearly an attack on our democracy,” Governor Pat McCrory said in a statement. “Violence has no place in our society – but especially in our elections. … I will use every resource as governor to assist local authorities in this investigation.”
Now before anyone rushes to judgment, this attack could have been orchestrated by anyone.
The county is overwhelmingly Democratic. Democrats and independents outnumber Republicans 5-1.
Ohhh… well I guess that narrows down the list of suspects.
