Why North Carolina Democrats Would Never Bomb Orange County GOP Office

Share
Trump speaks at a rally in Charlotte, NC

What makes this Orange County, North Carolina firebombing all the more suspicious — aside from the fact that the Orange County GOP is non-existent in elections — is the fact that Donald Trump began “tweeting” about the bombing moments within hours after it happened, blaming “Hillary Clinton supporters” and “Democrats” without any shred of evidence. In fact, every single Democrat or Hillary supporter I’ve encountered in North Carolina is gravely concerned about doing everything the law provides to prevent violence in this election.

Trump’s feigned hysteria carries the acrid stench of another famous fire: the one in the German Reichstag, started by the Nazi party of Adolph Hitler during the German national elections of 1933, and then blamed on the Communists. The Reichstag Fire was immediately pounced upon by Nazi leaders as “evidence” of terror from the left, proving the need for the authoritarian rule their leader promised. It was instrumental in leading to the election of Hitler as German Chancellor, despite the lack of any evidence to buttress the Nazis’ wild claims.

Eventually, the facts about this fire-bombing will come out, and justice will be meted out to the perpetrators of the crime. Until then, it’s reasonable to wonder why Democrats would have anything to do with attacking an opposition party headquarters that has been dormant for years.

[In an inspiring postscript to this story, Democrats across the country rallied quickly to a GoFundMe campaign to pay for the immediate restoration and reopening of the firebombed Republican office in Hillsborough, NC. The campaign’s organizers explained “this is not how Americans resolve their differences. We talk, we argue, sometimes we march, and most of all we vote. We do not resort to violence by individuals or by mobs.” Donors swiftly exceeded its goal, raising over $13,000 in a few hours.]

    Democrat brown shirt thugs….if Clinton gets the White House this is just the beginning of the oppression…….she has already made it clear she feels special hatred towards millions of Americans she calls “deplorable and irredeemable”, plus any and all Catholics and Evangelicals. The fire bombing act of terrorism is simply her supporters acting out and projecting their candidate’s stated feelings. Imagine how free they will feel to increase their acts of violence with total impunity if she is elected and sits over our legal system providing them endorsement and protection!

      It doesn’t wash. And it goes to both motive, and location. Those winning an election do not need to firebomb anything. Those who are losing however, sometimes feel they do. Therefore this violence, in a largely Democratic district, is more likely just that. An act of pathetic desperation, perpetuated by people that know they are about to be defeated. And could be hoping this overt act of sabotage will lead people to believe the election is turning violent. Or that their safety at the polling places could be in question, and that might depress turnout. Or perhaps they think it will energize Trump’s base? Maybe they’re angry? Now who might that be? We do know Trump’s people are increasingly concerned. As preliminary data registration in N. Carolina, an indicator of turnout in the State, shows that it may have fallen far short of what is necessary for a Trump win. Then location. Why disrupt an empty station in a district Democrats are going to win? Wouldn’t it make more sense to disrupt a headquarters in a closely contested district? Look, if it doesn’t make sense, it’s probably not true. Or in this case, not what the firebombers want you to think it is.

        History proves that theory doesn’t hold water……Hitler and his brown shirts grew bolder and bolder and more violent in their oppression of all opposition as they gained the upper hand. The Democrat party is merely following that formula, and it all begins at the very top with the incendiary language being spewed by Hillary Clinton and her increasingly violence loving supporters.

          That’s rich. A Trumpy complaining about the incendiary rhetoric of the opposition. I wonder who the recently arrested Garden City terrorists were supporting as they plotted to firebomb a mosque? The candidate that promised legal support for anyone punching a protester at one of his rallies in the mouth? Adding, “They used to carry people like that out on stretchers!” Use your head.

            By the way, did that supporter who punched that guy really get any legal help from TeamTrump.
            The last I heard Trump say was that he was having ‘his people’ looking into it.
            That’s not what the blowheart said
            That blowhard on the stump didn’t say we would ‘look into paying the legal fees’ of anyone who defended him, he said, ‘don’t worry, I’ll pay the legal fees’.
            Did he?
            I’m sure that this guy got an attorney to sue the ‘puncher’.
            I think I heard that his guy was charged with assault but he probably could also be charge with threating bodily harm to another as he was stupid enough to say, ‘well, the next time I guess we’ll just have to kill em’, on national TV, no doubt.

Republicans in this election have been angry, bitter, chanting horrible words and now they see the bad polls and notice they are losing. Thats the huge motivation to do horrible stuff like this one. When a person is happy doesn’t think at all to do any damage unless he is a mad person.

            Even if you’re right, you’ll be wrong. I am POSITIVE that you believe (as do I) that when a terrorist who happens to be Muslim commits an act of terror, it is not fair to say “The Muslims did it.” The same holds true here. You cannot say “The Republicans did it” when a deranged person commits an act of anarchy, even if they happen to vote Republican. Their political affiliation, political beliefs are not their identity at that point, their identity is anarchist/terrorist. But hey, if demonizing a whole group of people simply because they don’t share your politics makes you feel superior, have at it.

There are also evil, ignorant, and mentally unbalanced people in both parties.

    How did Trump find out there was a bombing in NYC at a time all authorities knew was there had been an explosion injuring several people? How did Trump find out that it was animals representing Hillary Clinton and the Dems in North Carolina who firebombed the GOP headquarters in Orange County, North Carolina when no authorities know who is responsible? What are his connections to Islamic terrorists? What are his connections to animals representing Hillary Clinton and the Dems? Did he have prior knowledge of these events? Clearly Trump has demonstrated that he must have close ties to very violent people willing to harm others and destroy property. It’s time to finally lock him up for the safety of all Americans.

    Being here in NC, I can tell you that it likely was leftist Democrats that did this. From a number, I’m hearing that there was no harm done since they were probably insured (it’s all good!), that it was the GOP doing it for the insurance (which would make no sense considering they couldn’t make up the lost ground before the election), or that all in the GOP are Nazi’s who deserved it. There is already a movement to remove anyone that helped from the Dem Party for being disloyal. They don’t represent all Dems but they are the sort of minority that would do this.

        The Democrats of 1865 when the KK formed are not the same as the 2016 Democrats. They have changed platforms since then. Heck in the 1860’s Republicans dominated the northern states.

        “So, sometime between the 1860s and 1936, the (Democratic) party of small government became the party of big government, and the (Republican) party of big government became rhetorically committed to curbing federal power.”

            Have you opened any books. You speak as an ignoramus, and as such you shouldn’t scold anyone about opening books, except yourself.

            LOL… I actually read many books. The latest books I am reading are reprints titled Russo Japan War 1905, Japan Qin Dynasty War 1895 and as I always do every 3 months or so Adam Smith’s the Wealth of Nations.

            How about you, what are you reading? Any non-fiction books that you can recommend?

            If you wish to know what I will be reading next please by all means ask in a few weeks.

            Stop believing what someone tells you and read about it from many sources yourself.

            Stop the Liberal ignorance.

            Read what many people wrote about the same subject and the truth will revile itself.

            It’s good that you declare that you’ve read, but reading books of the caliber of “The Further Adventures of Dick and Jane”, “Donald Duck Goes On a Picnic”, and similar genre hardly qualifies an adult to be well-read.
            Which would explain the dearth of knowledge you’ve displayed thus far.

        Joe, like a lot of other Americans who aren’t well educated, paid scant attention to social and political trends, and are easily confused by nomenclature you allow a designation to distract you.
        The core questions are these:
        1) Is the KKK a terrorist group or not?
        2) What Party is the KKK and other white supremacist groups attracted to?
        3) Did the Republican Party and Democratic Party switch names and platforms?

        Let’s consider the answers:
        1) Yes, the KKK is a terrorist organization now and always has been, long before the Taliban, Al-Qaida, and ISL came into existence.
        2) The KKK and other white supremacists are attracted to Trump and the GOP(Republican Party).
        3) The “Republicans” during the time of Lincoln were interested more in dismantling slavery in its most egregious forms. The Democratic Party catered more to the slave-owners and favored slavery. Later both parties switched names with “democrats”(Dixiecrats) switching to a more intransigent and inhumane party called the GOP.

        I hope this tutorial will remove the shackele of ignorance that have chained your mind up to now.

          Good to see you have come in to spout your Liberal talking points.

          1.) Right now the KKK hasn’t carried out any terrorist acts. The have changed their tactics to a defensive one rather than a reactive one. This is move has made them seem peaceful from their past actions and made the Antifa Liberal hate groups seem ruthless.

          2.) The KKK doesn’t like either party, they find both parties to be not to their liking. To them they would rather have an authoritarian party controlled by some insane figurehead.

          3.) No they did not, of all the Dixiecrats who left the Dems in the 60’s very few actually joined the GOP. The majority stayed in the Party. let’s not forget the voting rights act and who tried to filibuster it……. His first name started with a L and his last started with a Byrd.

          Let’s consider the answers:
          1) Yes, the KKK is a terrorist organization now and always has been, long before the Taliban, Al-Qaida, and ISL came into existence.

          1a.) What was the last terrorist act committed by the KKK? I haven’t read of one in a ling time. Think the last one was in Greensboro in the 80’s.

          2) The KKK and other white supremacists are attracted to Trump and the GOP(Republican Party).

          2a.) Can you name Klanner’s who have been accepted into the Trump campaign?

          3) The “Republicans” during the time of Lincoln were interested more in dismantling slavery in its most egregious forms.

          3a.) The Republican’s under Lincoln wanted to abolish slavery because they believed that slavery was a sin. Like most if not all Republican’s today.

          4.) The Democratic Party catered more to the slave-owners and favored slavery. Later both parties switched names with “democrats”(Dixiecrats) switching to a more intransigent and inhumane party called the GOP.

          4.a) Now you have jumped the Shark, the Dixiecrats were Southern Democrats who tried to block Civil Rights but failed. out The vast majority of them stay in the Democratic Party and most were in position of power while a small minority jumped to the GOP.

          Names matter and these are the DIXIECRATS that stayed in your party Orval Fabus, John Stennis, Bull Connor, Al Gore, Sr, John Rarick, Robert Byrd, Benjamin Travis Laney, James Eastland, John Stennis, Russell Long, John McClellan, John Sparkman, Herman Talmadge, George Wallace think I missed a few more… But look at those Names….

          Next the DIXIECRATS that joined the GOP (drum roll please) Strom Thurmond and Miles Godwin.

          Now what exactly were you saying?

          5.)I hope this tutorial will remove the shackles of ignorance that have chained your mind up to now.

          5a.) The only thing this tutorial of yours has shown is how little you know……Try harder and read man read!

            Funny, calling someone narrow minded when you are the one opposed to accually doing your own research. Sad, but expected. As I stated before enjoy your spoon-fed Utopia.

            It has been fun, but sadly this ride must come to an end. And with a grain of salt, I bid you I bid you adieu, this felt like I was fishing for trolls with dynamite. LOL

        Gee Joe, you really are dedicated Trump troll, eh?
        Love the way you drag in all sorts of old and unrelated stuff to smother the argument. Say, as long as you’re dredging up “examples,” how about going back to various underground groups that fought the Roman Empire?

    “-is the fact that Donald Trump began “tweeting” about the bombing moments within hours after it happened, ”

    What exactly does this mean?

    Reply
  16. Joe Biggs October 18, 2016

    Just a simple little question, when is it necessary to firebomb a political opponent?

    The reason I ask is that you wrote, “Firebombing GOP headquarters there is not only illegal, it’s unnecessary”.

    So when is the use of terror necessary? Freudian slip?

      You bomb a place of work to stop that organisation achieving a goal.
      The writer’s point is self-evident.
      The GOP cannot achieve any goals in that area due to lack of voters, and the office being dormant.
      Therefore there is no point in attempting to stop them achieving their goal.

      Your rather transparent allusion that liberals regard firebombing as acceptable behavior is ignored as the stupidity it is.

      Good point. I would suggest that the writer should have said “counterproductive.” That would leave no room for nitpicking and innuendo.

    Who paints swastikas on things, and where? White power neo-nazis, on homes, businesses, gravestones and synagogues. Not left-wing people on GOP offices.
    Here are real examples:
    –playground across the street from a Second Street yeshiva
    –home of an Indian-American New Jersey congressional candidate
    –the windows of a new-age Palm Springs business
    –outside home of a black family in Antioch, CA (firebombs were also involved)
    –on 19th-century black schoolhouse in VA (“White Power” was also painted on)
    The odds against left-wing culprits are overwhelming.
    10-17:
    North Carolina GOP admits it illegally stashed completed absentee ballots in firebombed office [and now denies it].
    The
    plot thickens – what would a political party be doing with *anyone’s*
    completed ballots? These are supposed to be kept in neutral hands.

    HOW did the 911 caller know the office had been FIREBOMBED if he was outside and just smelled smoke from a small fire that had already gone out on its own?

    Also, why would someone who opposes Nazis illustrate their message with a swastika?
