(Before It's News)

Sadly, politics can over-inflame people’s passions

(Raleigh N&O) The Orange County Republican Party headquarters was firebombed overnight Saturday and graffiti was spray-painted nearby in an attack that the GOP called “political terrorism.”

A flaming bottle was thrown through a window of the office and a swastika and “Nazi Republicans leave town or else” were painted in black on the side of an adjacent building, Hillsborough officials said in a news release.

Of course, some were quick to call this a “false flag” operation. Sorry, no, it’s typically Leftists perpetrating fake hate incidents.

Governor Pat McCrory stated

“The firebombing of a local political headquarters in Orange County is clearly an attack on our democracy,” 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.”

Hillary offered her response

to which the NC GOP thanked her. And

“The North Carolina Democratic Party strongly condemns this attack,” she said. “Violence has no place in our political system. … Our deepest sympathies are with everyone at the North Carolina Republican Party.”

Democratic Attorney General Roy Cooper tweeted, “Violence has no place in our democracy and can not be tolerated. The culprits must be caught and brought to justice.”

Trump went with

Overly bombastic.

Dallas Woodhouse, executive director of the state GOP, called the bombing “political terrorism.”

Later, Woodhouse said, “Whether you are Republican, Democrat or Independent, all Americans should be outraged by this hate-filled and violent attack against our democracy. … Everyone in this country should be free to express their political viewpoints without fear for their own safety.”

Thankfully, no one was hurt or killed. Here’s the kicker

The flaming bottle, which Woodhouse described as a significant Molotov cocktail, and bomb, was thrown through a window that bore the words “Freedom spoken here.”

If Democrats are lucky, the perpetrators will be folks that they can easily disassociate themselves from, some individual or group that is beyond Leftist fringe.
