Vandals Smash Windows, Deface Doors of Metropolitan Republican Club in Manhattan

Vandals Smash Windows, Deface Doors of Metropolitan Republican Club in Manhattan, by Joshua Caplan.

Officials with the Metropolitan Republican Club said Antifa had been trying to shut down their event on Friday evening with conservative pundit Gavin McInnes.

According to one official, members of Antifa had harassed the online ticket vendor Eventbrite, which the GOP Metropolitan Club used to sell tickets for the McInnes event at their headquarters.

The official said Antifa had “desperately” been trying to get the Metropolitan Republican Club to cancel the McInnes speech. The group’s latest attempt to shut down the event involved vandalising the club’s 1930s, pre-war building and leaving a threatening letter …

The club, a famed meeting place and campaign headquarters for countless Republicans, had its windows shattered and doors defaced with spray paint.

This is nothing like 1930s Germany and Antifa are not like the Nazi brownshirts.
