I hope they catch and prosecute the responsible parties. Thanks for adding the bullshit on at the end.

Thanks for the rent-free space in your head. Would have been nice if you'd cleaned it up a bit before you rented it out, though.

Eliminationist rhetoric will do that.

but remember, the two Trump supporters who spent twelve hours outside a Clinton field office "protesting" by making sure the staffers could see their open carry weapons weren't being threatening at all and you're a silly billy if you think otherwise

It's like how Isis likes Trump; It's a perfect setup for these extremist populists on all sides. They all enhance each others power.

Same applies to the more unpleasant elements on the left (noting I don't think we know who's done the firebombing yet).

Violent rhetoric doesn't just breed violence by your side.

It's a terrible thing. I hope they catch those responsible.

We have no way of knowing it wasn't a false flag operation by right wing extremists who are getting desperate in N.C.

It may have been left wing extremists who were very very dumb as well.

Smells a bit like a false flag. With all the cameras everywhere these days, it just makes no sense for an outsider to pull this stunt off.

Painting a candidate's name on the outside of a building isn't in the same league as throwing a Molotov into a building.

If it's a false flag, that means Trunp supporters did it. That's not the direction you usually argue for. I'd say congratulations, except I don't believe it (unless of course evidence shows up, this is speculation). The left isn't free of people who'd do that. Of course the difference in this election is Clinton isn't even hinting at violence, Trump (when departing from script, as is usual, has at least dog whistled it. But much as I have nothing good to say about Trump or his fervent supporters, I doubt this is them.

A Republican Party office in North Carolina was firebombed and vandalized on Saturday, and police are investigating who is responsible.

Dallas Woodhouse / Via Twitter: @DallasWoodhouse

Pat McCrory / Via Twitter: @PatMcCroryNC


The incident was condemned across the political aisle, from presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton to local officials — and a group of academics.

Zeynep Tufekci of the University of North Carolina’s School of Information Science first tweeted about Democrats helping the GOP office, and David Weinberger of Harvard’s Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Technology later launched a campaign on GoFundMe.

“Zeynep’s idea of having Democrats contribute to re-opening a Republican
office that was a victim of political terrorism — no matter who was responsible — struck a chord with me, and apparently with lots of other people,” Weinberger told BuzzFeed News.

Within 40 minutes, the online campaign beat its $10,000 goal.


This is what we should aspire to be like in the U.S.

Proud moment for me.

It's suspicious that they left any message at all considering that the fire itself was its own threatening message.

And such a generic threat message, too!


It smells more like a Trump-instigated latter-day Reich fire scapegoating incident to me.

Sounds like the usual extremist nutter with his own weird motivations to me.
Conspiracy theories are just too complicated to work in the real world.

I have no idea what the site is, I just grabbed the article for the listing (which can be backed up by police reports I am assuming)

http://www.alternet.org/election-2016/10-hate-crimes-inspire...

Not that they make firebombing things okay, but when you make violence a part of your repitoire then being shocked (shocked I say!) when it rolls back the other way is dumb.

I'm glad no one was hurt, I hope it might be a wakeup call to dial back the inciteful bullshit, but I might as well hope to win the lottery.
