Democrats Caught Red Handed

I'm just going to give quotes from a couple different articles, no further comments will be needed on this one...

First article is found HERE:

Eleven windows at the Colorado Democratic Party headquarters on Santa Fe Drive were shattered early this morning in a vandalism spree that party Chairwoman Pat Waak blamed on animosity surrounding the health care debate.


"We ought to be having a serious, conscientious debate about what's best for the country," Waak said. "Clearly there's been an effort on the other side to stir up hate. I think this is the consequence of it."

Second article is found HERE:

A 24-year-old arrested this morning on suspicion of smashing 11 windows at Colorado Democratic Party headquarters tried to conceal his identity while allegedly committing the crime, according to police descriptions.


While Schwenkler does not appear in the state's voter registration database, a person by that name in November 2008 received $500 from a political 527 committee called Colorado Citizens Coalition for "communications," according to campaign finance disclosures.

The accountant for the 527 appears to be the same woman who handles the books for many other Democratic-leaning political committees.

Third article is found HERE:

A suspect accused of smashing 11 windows at the Colorado Democratic Party headquarters early yesterday morning is connected to ultra-liberal groups once investigated by the FBI for potential domestic terrorism incidents.


Originally assumed by many that the incident was committed by Republicans angry over the reform proposal, a trail of evidence connects Schwenkler to ultra-liberal groups investigated by the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force.

A woman listed as a resident of Schwenkler's home in the 1000 block of Lipan Street was once questioned by investigators over various protests, including plans to disrupt the 2004 Republican and Democratic national conventions and the 2004 presidential election.

Investigators in August 2004 visited the Lipan Street home of Sarah Bardwell, an anti-war organizer and member of the Denver chapter of Food Not Bombs, to conduct pretext interviews to gain general information concerning possible criminal activity at the upcoming political conventions and presidential election, according to a Freedom of Information Act request made public by the American Civil Liberties Union.

The Raleigh, N.C., chapter of Food Not Bombs was connected with a November 2004 incident in which the North Carolina Republican headquarters was vandalized.

Schwenkler was also once paid $500 by liberal-leaning group Colorado Citizens Coalition for communication work, according to 2008 expenditure filings to the Secretary of State's office. The Colorado Citizens Coalition is a political 527 committee dedicated to social issues such as health care and education reform.


State Republican Party Chairman Dick Wadhams called the act reprehensible, but said it is unfair to connect the incident to Republican opposition to the president's health care reform plan.

The people who oppose the Obama-Democratic health care plan are hard-working American citizens who legitimately oppose that plan, he said. That opposition has nothing to do with this despicable act against the Democratic Party headquarters.

Meanwhile, Waak is asking for donations to help with the estimated $10,000 in damage. She herself joined a group of volunteers yesterday in cleaning up the broken glass and boarding up smashed windows.

She said it does not surprise her that the suspect may be involved with extremist liberal groups.

I do hear from people from time to time on each end of the extreme, said Waak.

Whatever the issue is, it seems to be stimulated in some small part by this, she continued. I think we need to have a civil debate about health care and it needs to not be on one extreme over the other.
