The Seminole County Republican Party office was vandalized on Sunday with a message that would suggest it may be the work of Antifa leftists.
The office is located in Central Florida, just north of Orlando, and the graffiti left on the window echoed the message President Biden delivered recently when he characterized the Republican philosophy as little more than “semi-fascism.”
“Eat sh*t fascists,” read the message spray-painted on the window, punctuated by an enclosed “A” that is widely seen as a symbol for anarchy.
Ronna McDaniel, chair of the Republican National Committee, denounced the political attack online while sharing a photo of the vandalism.
“The Seminole County GOP office was vandalized overnight. The criminals echoed Biden’s ‘fascists’ slander. There is no place for violence in our political discourse, and the GOP will not be intimidated,” she tweeted.

In what may be the most divisive rhetoric ever seen from a sitting president, Biden blasted Republicans last week.
“The MAGA Republicans don’t just threaten our personal rights and economic security. They’re a threat to our very democracy,” he said on Thursday. “They refuse to accept the will of the people. They embrace political violence. They don’t believe in democracy.”
“It’s not just Trump,” Biden added, “it’s the entire philosophy that underpins the — I’m going to say something: It’s like semi-fascism.”
But rest assured, Biden condemns the attack he appears to have inspired, just ask White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.
The president’s spokesperson commented on the incident aboard Air Force One when asked about it by a reporter. “So, look, the President has always, always been clear that violence, vandalism, threats have no place in our society and that he always condemns such acts, as he does here in that particular case,” she claimed.

Seminole County State Committeeman Jesse Phillips said the perpetrators also put a glue-like substance on the locks to prevent entry.
“We basically had to break into our own office,” he said, according to The Hill.
Retweeting an image of the message, Phillips tweeted: “I was there when this was discovered. Volunteers couldn’t enter the building and were concerned about safety. We won’t be intimidated.”

While the corporate media can be counted on to give President Biden a pass here for his hateful rhetoric and the impact it appears to be having, social media was a different story.
Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
His recent “semi-fascist” rhetoric may be to blame for this vandalism.

Yeah he didn’t just call half the country “semi fascist” just the other day. pic.twitter.com/qbZaYz3vlA

Guess I missed 2020 Biden taking a stand as cities all over the USA were burned and looted.
Also why would anyone quote Jean-Pierre, she’s such a liar.

Biden just called half the country a bunch of fascists and now Democrat terror groups are using his exact same words with their terror and intimidation attacks.
