The Kent County Republican Committee has been the target of violent attacks in the past. In 2004 they actually took gunfire as a bullet was fired through the windows. Obviously a scary situation. Word from Sam Moore, the KCRC ED, is that serious threats have been coming in regularly ever since Barack Obama made a stop in Grand Rapids several weeks ago. Not angry letters or prank calls... threats. The Michigan Republican Party HQ in Lansing has also been repeatedly tagged with profane graffiti. My favorite happened a few weeks back when one Rhodes Scholar or another, unhappy with MRP, spray painted the building with an attempted insult that read, in giant two foot letters, "BICTH!"
This should surprise no one. Many liberals see themselves as good and the GOP as evil. Therefore they are able to justify vandalism. It happened in Wisconsin with slashed tires and in Portland Oregon with the GOP office trashed during the ‘04 campaign. The media barely covered both events.
Then you dont remember the last campaign:
But Mason said because there was no graffiti, police have no reason to believe it was politically motivated.
Huh? In the many attacks in the past (partially listed above), how often have they left graffiti?
It begins again?
I am SO glad that I live out here in the SF Bay area, where things are SO much calmer and more civilized. You wild radicals in Grand Rapids, Michigan are just WAY too over the top for us!! How about if we send you Nancy Pelosi, Diane Feinstein, and Barbara Boxer to help you get things under control. No, really, it’s OK, you can have them (we have already sent you Jennifer Granholm, and look how much SHE has helped).
I’m tellin’ you, those CRC’ers and Amway Distributors are nothing but anarchists at heart. And for years we Californians have been asking ourselves: when are they finally going to do something about all those stalinist radicals over at Acquinas and Calvin Colleges?? What will the they do next, burn wooden shoes in the middle of Calder Plaza??
Oh, the humanity.
On the serious side, I hate to think that all of the Republican Offices will have to start hiring guards to be on duty 24x7 in order to keep the “youths” under control. What is the country coming to??
I wonder if G. Gordon Liddy and some Cubans were in Grand Rapids?
How can he say he's expect "anything" and then say he didn't expect a simple break-in?
Besides maybe he's just clueless...
I think when Liddy was caught in the Watergate, he was writing on the walls. </src>
I don’t expect this in Grand Rapids. Ann Arbor maybe, but not there.
You're fired, Dave.
