Vandals Smash Windows, Deface Doors of Metropolitan Republican Club in Manhattan
Our attack is merely a beginning. We are not passive, we are not civil, and we will not apologize," the letter continues. "Those of good conscience and clear mind know this state of oppression cannot remain." Metropolitan Republican Club officials say they are not canceling their event with McInnes and that they will "move forward" from the vandalism.
A full statement from the club states:
"Last night the Metropolitan Republican Club was vandalized by the leftist hate group Antifa, who also left a note promising 'this is just the beginning' and threatening more violence. Republicans are a minority party in NYC by a wide margin, and while most city residents are respectful of our activities, our grassroots efforts are often met with hostility. Last night's shameful assault by Antifa cowards represents a tragic new low, and is sadly only the most recent example of leftist violence and aggression against the conservative movement. But rest assured that we will not be intimidated by violence, threats, or hate speech. We will continue to fight for freedom and liberty here in New York City and all across this great nation."
