Terrorists these days... Can't even firebomb an office properly. SAD!

Was it Antifa again?

Unregard. The person was wearing a US flag bandanna. Not a black hoodie.

Although I guess it could be a a false flag thing. The left has no love for the Democratic party.

At least we know it's probably not this pair of Uber-patriotic Trumpfers: "2 California Men Charged With Planning to Firebomb Democratic Targets" (www.courthousenews.com), since they've been accounted for a couple of months now, facing up to 10 and 20 years of well-deserved incarceration.

#5 The two men hoped their attacks would start a "movement"

Instead, it started their movement to prison. Lock them up!

#5 That "White Privilege" card is hilarious.

It's interesting how instead of denying it like most Deplorables, they feel entitled to it (also like Deplorables, but in private)

His GoFundMe account will soon be overflowing with generous donations by his fellow MAGAts.

Fun fact, I live just down the street from one of Pennsylvania's Democratic Senator's offices.

Want me to hang around out front with a marshmallow on a stick and see how long it takes to get arrested?

Mythbummer is just practicing the well-worn Soviet/Trumpist tactic of Whataboutism.

On the Democrats?

It was the Democrats who got firebombed.

The last time a Democratic Party headquarters was attacked, it was leftists carrying anti-Biden signs.

You're from Portland.

You remember.

"Although I guess it could be a a false flag thing. The left has no love for the Democratic party."

MB needs to change his name to Mad Hatter. This was, so obviously, not a false flag thing but he wants to insert the idea that it was to spin it away from the right wing crazies who encouraged it.

"The last time a Democratic Party headquarters was attacked, it was leftists carrying anti-Biden signs."

But they never fire bombed anything. they did protest but no one died. Comparing a fire bombing to that is ridiculous and sort of desperate.

GQPers just shrug off violence.
It's a feature with them, not a bug.
Like lying.
Which, in terms of civil society, earns them scum status.
Congrats.

2AM arson? Clearly that can't be a terrorist. That's like setting off a bomb in the capitol when nobody is in it. It's just getting across a message. It clearly is not terrorism.

Not a terrorist? The FBI might have a different take.

"Domestic terrorism: Violent, criminal acts committed by individuals and/or groups to further ideological goals stemming from domestic influences, such as those of a political, religious, social, racial, or environmental nature."

Lock this person up! Wearing the flag as a piece of clothing is considered desecration and an insult to our country. What was he doing, after all? What? Wait--scratch what I just said. This fine man is a patriot!

We had 8 months of actual arson and lefties cheered it.

Having said that, prosecute this ----- to the fullest letter of the law.

Sure, this isnt terrorism. Reins aren't whips. 1/6 wasn't an insurrection. No quid pro quo. The election was stolen. And obama is a secret gay kenyan.

White privilege terrorism. The police apologized that they arrested a white guy that was just exercising his right to terrorize.

Police in Austin, TX have arrested Ryan Faircloth for throwing a Molotov cocktail into the Travis Co Dem Party HQ: He "was not happy with the current political climate. He blamed this office, and who they represent, for a lot of the issues he saw as problems with the country." pic.twitter.com/6jfnZi1KOl" Ron Filipkowski (@RonFilipkowski) October 1, 2021


I hope his corpse gets raped in prison.

Uh...there's this courthouse in Portland...

"They did protest but no one died."

Protested by breaking the windows and spraypainting anti-Biden graffiti.
