Far-left activists associated with Antifa and other radical hate groups attacked the Republican Party headquarters in New York City late Thursday evening; vandalizing the historic building and warning the incident was “merely the beginning.”
The New York GOP released shocking images immediately following the assault; writing “The New York Republican New York City headquarters at the Metropolitan Republican Club was physically vandalized last evening with broken windows, spray-paint and more.”
The attackers left an ominous note at the scene, saying “The U.S. government has established concentration camps around the country for Latino people, shamelessly murdering black people, and continues its war machine that has slaughtered Muslim people with impunity for decades.”
“Our attack is merely a beginning. We are not passive, we are not civil, and we will not apologize. Those of good conscience and clear mind know this state of oppression cannot remain. The US fascist political system is one of the most savage institutions in history and we will combat it relentlessly until all are free of American barbarism,” adds the note.

DNC RAGE: Radical Rep. Keith Ellison ENDORSES ANTIFA Terror Group
Deputy Chairman of the Democratic National Committee and Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison openly supported the radical left-wing hate group commonly known as Antifa on Wednesday, posting a photo of himself holding the organization’s “Anti-Fascist Handbook” on social media.
Ellison published the ill-conceived selfie on twitter this week, adding that he “found the book that strike fear in the heart of @realDonaldTrump.”
One key problem for the radical representative: Antifa is considered by FBI Director Christopher Wray as an “active domestic terror” ideology. Speaking with legislators last fall, the Bureau chief blasted the left-wing group over widespread violence at pro-Trump rallies throughout the country.
“While we’re not investigating Antifa as Antifa — that’s an ideology and we don’t investigate ideologies — we are investigating a number of what we would call anarchist-extremist investigations, where we have properly predicated subjects of people who are motivated to commit violent criminal activity on kind of an Antifa ideology,” Wray told a House panel.
Nancy Pelosi STILL Won't Condemn Antifa Protesters
Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi refused to call-out violent Antifa protesters by name this week, instead calling for “peaceful protests” in the aftermath of the violent attacks that injured five Trump supporters in Berkeley, California over the weekend.
The House Minority Leader released her statement after Antifa demonstrators intentionally targeted peaceful Donald Trump supporters at a free speech rally on the liberal campus.
Pelosi’s office sent a one sentence response to the Washington Times Monday evening, saying “Leader Pelosi has always emphasized the importance of ‘peaceful’ in the right to peaceful protest.”
The statement comes just days after left-wing violence rocked Berkeley during an event the former Speaker referred to as a “white supremacist rally.” Pelosi had previously called on the National Parks Service to revoke the group’s permit, saying you can’t “Yell wolf in a theater.”
“From the start, I have had grave concerns about the public safety hazard the National Park Service would create by permitting a white supremacist rally in the middle of a park for families and children,” said Nancy just days before the protests.
“As we ponder where and by whom the ill-conceived decision to approve this permit in a national park was made, we must all pray it does not become an invitation to incite violence,” she added.
