Republican congresswoman’s home vandalized with Antifa symbolism on Memorial Day

There’s growing talk about how there’s a two-tiered justice system under the Biden administration, where those on the right can often expect to be fully prosecuted for things left-wing activists receive a slap on the wrist over.

However, for those who’ve been paying attention, a two-tiered system has long been in place when it comes to how the media covers Republican politicians compared to how they cover Democrats. Look no further that the muted response to the Memorial Day attack on a GOP congresswoman’s home by apparent Antifa sympathizers.

Rep. Nancy Mace, R-S.C., took to social media Monday to say that her South Carolina home was vandalized with a number of Antifa symbols — the freshman lawmaker is a single mother of two young children.

“In the early morning hours of Memorial Day, my home, where I’m raising my two children, was vandalized with Antifa symbols and profanity. Although my kids and I are thankfully fine, these criminal acts are unacceptable no matter your politics,” she tweeted.

In a series of tweets, Mace let it be known that this wasn’t the first time she has been targeted.

“We should all be able to feel safe in our own homes, regardless of our political beliefs,” she wrote. “I sincerely appreciate law enforcement doing all they can to find the criminal trespassers. This is the 2nd time I’ve been targeted for vandalism in the last few months.”

“There is a significant difference between nonviolent protests and criminal acts of intimidation and vandalism,” Mace noted. “I’m concerned too for my neighbors who’ve been impacted by this appalling criminal behavior. I also want to take a moment to thank those same neighbors; so many have reached out to offer their assistance and support. I cannot thank the Charleston community enough.”

Pointing to the “vitriol of our current political environment,” Mace asked people to “take it down a notch.”

“As I’ve had time to digest what has happened over the last 24 hours, I also wanted to take a moment to urge people to think about their words and their actions. It’s not just social media, but our words impact real people and impact real lives. We should take it down a notch,” she tweeted.

Of course, no politician has experienced extreme behavior more than U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, who just recently had a white powdery substance mailed to his home — turned out, it was harmless.

The Kentucky Republican’s wife responded to that attack by calling out overzealous wingnuts, naming Bette Midler specifically, for over-the-top rhetoric. She also let it be known that the family is not going to be intimidated.

“I am sick of the hatred and vitriol from people who boast of their ’empathy and compassion’ in their bios. Rand will continue to stand up for our constitutionally protected liberties. He will keep questioning the ‘experts.’ We won’t be intimidated. And yes, we have guns,” Kelley Paul tweeted.

Nikki Haley, the former U.N. ambassador and South Carolina governor, responded to Mace’s tweet to say: “I’m so sorry Nancy. I hate that your children had to see that.”

U.S. Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., also commented, calling the incident “unacceptable.”

“Acts of vandalism and hate are simply unacceptable and have no place in our society. Praying for you, the kids, and our community,” Scott said in a tweet. “I trust our local law enforcement officers will get to the bottom of this soon.”

While House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., tweeted freely Monday, with more than one tweet pushing a racial agenda and tweets marking Memorial Day, the Democrat had nothing to say about the home of a member of Congress being targeted.
