Coincidence? NC Democrats' Office Vandalized On Sunday, Too

While the damage wasn't quite as extensive, it suggests someone is upset with both parties.
Coincidence? NC Democrats' Office Vandalized On Sunday, Too

Yesterday, the North Carolina Republican Party office in Orange County was firebombed with a menacing message left on the side of the building.

Shortly after the news broke, Democrats in North Carolina began to raise money to help Republicans get their office reopened and running again. Their GoFundMe goal was $10,000, but they exceeded that and raised about $13,000 in just a few hours.

That's called going high, even while they go low. But there's more to the story, as Raw Story reports.

But Orange County Democratic Party Chair Matt Hughes told Raw Story on Monday that vandals had also targeted his offices in Carrboro. Both attacks were said to have occurred early Sunday morning.

According to Hughes, staffers found the words “Death to Capitalism” scrawled on the OCDP headquarters when they came into work.

There’s a chilling effect,” he explained. “We have staff and we have volunteers who work in that office… I’m one of those folks who sometimes works late into the night in a party office and you wonder about your safety when you look at things like what happened [to the GOP office] in Hillsborough or something like ‘Death to Capitalism.’ A lot of folks see that as a threat, not even a veiled threat.”

So, anarchists? Different groups? Troublemakers? No one really knows or will know until police investigate. But this election is bad enough without people firebombing offices and defacing walls adjacent.

Let's just vote.
