Republican HQ In Orange County North Carolina Firebombed

Well it was just a matter of time.

Hillsborough police say the incident at the Orange County GOP headquarters occurred when a bottle of flammable liquid was thrown through the front window of the office that housed the local GOP headquarters.

The words, “Nazi Republicans get out of town or else” and a swastika were spray painted on the side of an adjacent building. Officials said the bomb ignited inside the office. No damage estimates were available.

Hillsborough police and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were continuing to investigate. The incident took place in Orange County, home of the University of North Carolina in nearby Chapel Hill.

The county is overwhelmingly Democratic. Democrats and independents outnumber Republicans 5-1.

This is a horrific statement about what democracy in our country is being reduced to.  We have had nearly eight years of of ever increasing tensions, and the promotion of an attitude of lawlessness at the highest levels of our government. Top that off with a justice dept that only seems to prosecute crimes against people it doesn’t like, and lets everything else go, it’s no surprise you see despicable acts like this.
