That Little Domestic Terrorism Problem Of Ours, Con't

Somebody sure doesn't like Democrats and the media, to the point of, you know, targeting them in the mail with suspicious explosive packages.

Explosive devices were sent to former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as well as to CNN’s offices in New York, sparking an intense investigation on Wednesday into whether a bomber is going after targets that have often been the subject of right-wing ire.

The three devices were similar to one found Monday at the home of George Soros, the billionaire philanthropist and liberal donor who has come under fierce criticism from conservatives and conspiracy theorists.

None of the devices harmed anyone. Law enforcement officials said they were investigating whether all the devices were sent by the same person or persons.

In a statement, the Secret Service said it had “intercepted two suspicious packages addressed to Secret Service protectees,” who were identified as Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Obama.

The device addressed to Mrs. Clinton in Westchester County was found late on Tuesday by a Secret Service employee who screens mail for her, the statement said. The package addressed to Mr. Obama was intercepted early on Wednesday by Secret Service personnel in Washington, who screened mail for the White House.

Shortly after the Secret Service made that announcement, the Time Warner Center, a major office complex in Midtown Manhattan, was evacuated after a similar device was discovered to have been sent to CNN’s offices there.

By the end of the week, Republicans will be screaming that Clinton sent them to herself as a false flag, tens of millions will believe it because it keeps them from having to deal with reality, and that maybe if they had exploded, America would be better off. 

Then they'll call Democrats a "violent mob" for the next forever while the very same media targeted for violence warns Democrats not to do anything rash and to blame the left for not being subservient enough to Angry White Working Class Voters™.

We know how this plays out.  The chance to edit this script is at the ballot box.
