‘Political Terrorism’: GOP County Headquarters Firebombed in North Carolina

In a criminal act that is being called “political terrorism,” the Republican Party headquarters in Orange County, North Carolina was firebombed and the office is being written off as a “total loss.”

Thankfully, no one was killed in the act that left the burned-out office spray-painted with the words “Nazi Republicans get out of town or else,” according to police as reported by the Charlotte Observer. The domestic terrorism took place Saturday night according to the Orange County Republican Party in NC (see pictures below).

“This highly disturbing act goes far beyond vandalizing property; it willfully threatens our community’s safety via fire, and its hateful message undermines decency, respect, and integrity in civic participation,” Hillsborough Mayor Tom Stevens said in a statement, The Observer reported. “I believe I speak for the overwhelming majority of people … Acts like this have no place in our community.”

“The office itself is a total loss,” said Dallas Woodhouse, executive director of state GOP. “The only thing important to us is that nobody was killed, and they very well could have been.”

Police said the words, “Nazi Republicans get out of town or else” were spray painted on the side of an adjacent building.

Police are asking that anyone with information regarding the crime should call the police department’s tip line at 919-732-3975.
