Democrats in Oregon have blamed ‘Republican attacks’ after Antifa smashed up its headquarters last Wednesday just hours after Joe Biden was inaugurated.
The Democrat Party Of Oregon released a statement that doesn’t even mention left wing violence or Antifa, but instead infers that Republicans are to blame.
“This is not the first time our building has been vandalized during the past year, and none of the prior incidents have deterred us from our important work to elect Democrats up and down the ballot,” the statement says, adding “This incident will be no different.”
After asking for donations and help to fix up the building, the statement adds “There is still so much to be done, but we at the Democratic Party of Oregon are resolute and determined to do everything in our power to support the Biden/Harris administration, and to help Oregon and America recover from the pandemic stronger than before.”
The statement then claims that “Years of relentless Republican attacks on our Democratic values and the very foundations of our democracy have not stopped our work, and neither will this senseless vandalism. We are undeterred.”
Once again, take a look at these ‘Republicans’ attacking the Democratic building:
