Attack on GOP office probably a hoax

Before the right-wing media grabs the ball and runs with this story, we need to do a Wright brothers on their bubble and force them to dig themselves out of the gooey mess.

Officials reported today that a Republican Party office in Hillsborough, North Carolina, was firebombed. Explosives were thrown through the window of the building.

In all probability, the attack was a hoax. I can say with near-certainty it was carried out by Republicans in an attempt to generate sympathy. There's not a shadow of a doubt in my mind. I suspect this, because they have a history of hoaxes like this.

The attack was carried out at a time when nobody was at the office and in such a way to inflict minimal property damage there. If someone really wanted to do real damage, they wouldn't have done it like this. In addition, a neighboring building not connected to the GOP was vandalized. Donald Trump's opponents aren't desperate enough to bomb a party office, since Trump is already trailing in the polls by a wide margin.

Worse, a GOP official called the probable hoax a hate crime - which trivializes the suffering of victims of real hate crimes.

Lots of folks agree with me on this. So if the GOP doesn't want to be humiliated further, they need to cool their crappers.
