That firebombing of a Republican headquarters in North Carolina is very disturbing and, if it was self-identified "liberals" who did it, disappointing in the extreme. For one thing, I've always believed such things were much more likely (mainly because it's true) to be the work of right-wing zealots. Planned Parenthood, Mosques, Democratic offices, homes, and, you know, what-not.
I was impressed by Hillary Clinton's response. Donald didn't disappoint, either, but for opposite reasons. And I'm very glad that local Democrats and many from far away have been raising money to rebuild the building. Whoever did it, one hopes, will be found, and (after a fair trial and adequate legal representation) locked up for a long, long time.
I can't help but point out, however, that if it had been an attack on a Democratic office, Alex Jones would be leading the chorus of claims that it was a "false flag" operation (a term with which I'd not been familiar until he used it in reference to the murders at Sandy Hook). Just sayin'.
