The Republican National Committee’s field office in Cedar Rapids had a rock thrown through a window and the RNC is blaming the continued festering of political violence in Iowa on the “far left.”
A Wisconsin restaurant planning to host an event for a Republican congressional candidate was vandalized last week. Earlier this year the RNC’s Hispanic community center in Milwaukee also endured vandalism.
Protesters have also demonstrated outside of Supreme Court justices’ homes, in violation of federal law, without consequence.
“Political violence of any sort has no place in a civil society,” said RNC spokesman Kush Desai. “Monday’s vandalism against an RNC field office in Cedar Rapids underscores the dangers of unchecked rhetoric against ideological dissent – and its threat to Iowa Nice.”
