And the political sign destruction continues nationally …
Obviously, Rockford isn’t the only place where political signs are stolen or destroyed. Regarding presidential signs, left wingnuts are not only burning Romney signs, but also destroying people’s personal property, including a veteran’s flags or anything else that might disagree with their position on the election.
There is certainly no doubt that the election between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama is one of the more contentious ever. Just look at Obama’s demeanor and the things he said during the last presidential debate. He has taken that classless rhetoric to the campaign trail as well. But his supporters are even worse, now stooping to burning signs on private property and leaving Obama graffiti behind.
Police are searching for the vandals who apparently torched more than a dozen campaign signs and American flags in a Howey-in-the-Hills veteran’s yard.
William Overbay said someone ignited the flags and signs, which supported Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, that he had lined along his yard. The vandals also painted a sign on his driveway reading “Obama for life,” at his DuPont Circle home, Overbay said.
Also, The Washington Post reports, a 4 x 8 yard Romney sign was set ablaze in the yard of Jack and Libby Stevens in Virginia.
“What we saw was reminiscent of a [Ku Klux Klan] cross burning,” Stevens said in an e-mail. “And that may well have been the effect the perpetrators wished to achieve.”
So what is happening across our country? Obama’s “Hope and Change” has been replaced by his supporter’s intimidation and criminal actions. Obama has turned out to one of the most divisive presidents to ever hold the office!
