‘Stop Right Wing’ – GOP Attacked In OH

From Ohio’s Marion Star:

‘Stop right wing’ is message to local GOP

Delivered via brick through HQ window

April 1, 2010

MARION — Two Republican party officials were shocked to hear someone had thrown a brick through a window at their headquarters downtown — with a message directed at stopping conservatism.

"Stop the right wing," was written in purple ink on a piece of notebook paper.

"The bottom was torn off of it, maybe like they made a mistake or something when they were writing it the first time," said Kenneth Stiverson, president of the Marion County Republican Club.

Employees at the law offices next door to the headquarters, at 114 S. Main St., called party members to let them know the window had been broken Tuesday.

Police were called and took the brick and note as evidence.

Stiverson said he didn’t think people in Marion would do such a thing. Republican party members who were helping to clean up found the note after they found the brick…

Marion County Republican Central Committee Chairman John Matthews and Stiverson said there weren’t any warnings or threats they knew of.

"We’re lucky there wasn’t anyone sitting near there," Stiverson said. "It happened at a time of day when nobody was sitting at the desk."

Matthews said he’ll look at steps to improve the safety of volunteers and party members.

"I’m a little concerned with regard to the message it sends out, especially to the young people getting involved in politics," he said. "I thought Marion was above that. So much for the free flow of ideas and ideologies."

It may cost more than $600 to fix the window, Stiverson said. Meanwhile, it’s been patched with duct tape.

"We’ve never had anything like this happen before. In that part of town sometimes people will wiggle on the doors and try to get in, but we never had any vandalism before," Matthews said.

Another story that will never make it out of the local media.

    Soon, the Reichstag will catch on fire, and Obama will demand more direct power to deal with this ‘crisis.’

    They already have the barbed wire FEMA camps set up just for you, now they need an excuse to throw people in it, for ‘safety’ reasons.

    We were warned by Big Sis about right wing extremists.

    We are so evil that now we are staging acts of violence against ourselves.

    Something the left would never, uh, hardly ever, er, rarely, um, only do if necessary to protect the country from racism and freedom.
