Oh drat and curses, those evil, hateful, ignorant, racist teabaggers must have whipped up a call to violence yet again!
Oh, wait, it was a GOP office in Virginia that was vandalized. Yawn. Move along, nothing to see here.
Bricks were thrown through the windows of the Albemarle County GOP headquarters overnight in what appears to be the Charlottesville area’s latest act of politically fueled vandalism. County GOP Chairwoman Rachel Schoenewald arrived at the office in the Albemarle Square shopping center Friday morning to find two windows shattered and a third partially damaged.
“Hopefully, everyone will conduct themselves as community members and that this violence does not escalate or continue,” she said. The county’s GOP headquarters also serves as the district office of Del. Rob Bell, R-Albemarle. Schoenewald declined to blame any particular group, but noted that people are angry on both sides of the political spectrum.
“There are millions of people across the country,” she said. “Many of them are upset, one way or another. I hope this is the last of the violence.” Albemarle County police are investigating the incident. Police estimated the damage would cost roughly $1,000 to fix. Police asked anyone with information about the vandalism to call Crimestoppers at 977-4000.
The shattered windows come five months after someone glued shut the GOP headquarters’ doors on Election Day when Republican Bob McDonnell defeated Democrat R. Creigh Deeds in Virginia’s gubernatorial race.
Man, if only the Republicans would follow the Democrat’s example of civility.
