The North Carolina home and campaign headquarters of a Republican congressional candidate were brutally vandalized by Antifa thugs late last week.
“At 4:55am last morning, activists from far-left fringe Antifa groups acted on the aggressive rhetoric of my opponent and committed gross acts of vandalism and destruction of property across this district,” Madison Cawthorn announced on Facebook over the weekend. “My opponent’s strike force inflicted thousands of dollars of damage to both public and private property.”
“The Henderson County GOP office, which was defaced with graffiti, many businesses, and local homes who displayed support for both my candidacy and other Republicans were attacked and their signs defaced,” Cawthorn explained. “Personally, my home was targeted and my property vandalized by thugs acting in support of my opponent’s vision for this district. These left-wing enforcers spray-painted threats of violence and echoed my opponent’s words, as they symbolically crushed my neck and head on each sign deposited on my property.”
“The most disturbing report about last night’s events involves my opponent refusing to denounce these acts of aggressive violence,” the candidate went on. “Just weeks ago, a well-known reporter was attacked by leftist groups in downtown Asheville, the same groups who have held rallies in support of my opponent, when asked to condemn such violent acts against impartial members of the media my opponent was silent. Today my opponent is silent again. Rest assured that attempts to silence our message of hope for this district will not succeed. Let us continue to pray for these troubled people that they may find peace.”
Cawthorn attached photos of several defaced campaign signs accusing him of being a “liar,” having no soul, being a “wannabe corporate shill,” and selling his soul.
The congressional race between Cawthorn and his opponent, Democrat Moe Davis, a retired Air Force colonel with a penchant for tweeting anti-Conservative hate, heated up exponentially after Cawthorn defeated a Trump-supported candidate in a June runoff primary election.
Davis made waves last year after tweeting that the proper punishment for “extremists” in the North Carolina Republican Party is to “stomp their scrawny pasty necks with our heels and once you hear the sound of a crisp snap you grind your heel hard and twist it slowly side to side for good measure. He needs to know who whupped his a**.”
Screw they go low, we go high bullsh*t. When @NCGOP extremists go low, we stomp their scrawny pasty necks with our heels and once you hear the sound of a crisp snap you grind your heel hard and twist it slowly side to side for good measure. He needs to know who whupped his ass.

When this is how Davis speaks, it’s little wonder that his supporters will stoop to criminal acts.
This is what we are up against, folks. Suit up.
