We’ve had some nutty person mail explosive devices to prominent Democrats and celebrities. They luckily did not go off, and no one was hurt. A raging anti-Semite shot and killed 11 people in a synagogue in Pittsburgh over the weekend. The media is in overdrive trying to pin this all on President Donald Trump and the conservative media. So, is the president to blame for the shots that were fired at the Volusia GOP headquarters in Florida?
Earlier today, four shots were fired at the local GOP headquarters. No other businesses were harmed. It appears to be another act of politically motivated violence (via Daytona Beach News-Journal):
The windows of Volusia County’s Republican Party headquarters were found shot out Monday morning and four bullet holes were discovered inside the offices.
Police were investigating the damage to the windows at 2841 S. Nova Road, a strip mall near Reed Canal Park.
Shattered glass and fallen campaign posters littered the sidewalk outside Republican party headquarters. Inside, volunteers pointed to bullet holes in the walls and ceiling.
“We have never had any kind of vandalism before at a Republican Headquarters,” Tony Ledbetter, the chairman of Volusia County’s Republican Party, said in an email Monday morning. “It’s a small strip center and no other business was vandalized, so it was obviously politically motivated.”

Mr. Ledbetter was also adamant that a Democrat committed this act.
"No Republican has any reason to attack our location," he added.
UPDATE: Not the first time. Caleb Hull compiled multiple attacks on local Republican headquarters from across the country. Imagine the news coverage if these had been Democratic HQs.

Someone took a sledge hammer to the windows at the GOP HQ in Fayette County, Kentucky. This is the third time the building has been vandalized in two years. The last time, they spray painted "Nazi scum" and "Die Nazi."https://t.co/79KzKIUwey pic.twitter.com/136RIQKNjU— Caleb SkHull ?????? (@CalebJHull) October 29, 2018
