    It seems like each election, there is a rash of vandalism and voter intimidation against Republican voters. Tires slashed by John Kerry employees on get out the vote vans in 2004. Phoney phone calls to Republican voters in 2004, telling them their voting place had been changed, Black Panthers in para-military garb in 2008, phoney letters to Republican voters in Florida, Romney yard signs stolen, Cars with Romney stickers keyed, vandals urinating on Romney yard signs, etc.

    Now we can add arson to the list:

    Is this the new passive-agressive face of leftist activists? Has anyone here has been a victim of these disgusting left-wing vandals? Post your story below.

    ......End Thread.

    And is vandalism really considered passive-aggressive? Seems more aggressive than passive, but that's just me. :confused:

    Here in Houston, for both this election and the one 4 years ago, I've seen plenty of crap done to Obama lawn signs. And when Annise Parker, who is a lesbian and a Democrat, ran for Mayor here, you should have seen what was done to her signs.

    If you truly believe this is a one-sided problem, it's probably time to turn off Fox News.

    Wow- your partisanship knows no bounds. I have no words, except that you live a on a different planet from the rest of us.

    Didn't take long, did it?

    Romney supporters aren't used to having things burned in their yards.

    You are wearing your partisan politics on your sleeve, lol. You'd have more credibility if you had described it as disgusting political based vandalism. Or are you not disgusted equally by right-wing vandals? ;)

    Seriously- and really, this is most likely pranks by younger folks being goofy, nothing serious.

    Of course not. Right wing vandalism is patriotism! Don't you know that?

    Bombing abortion clinics and gay bars, killing doctors- it's all for the greater good after all. :rolleyes:

    Get ****ing real. This is not a one-sided issue. Have you not heard of the window of the Denver Obama campaign office being shot through?
