There are a myriad of ways in which nefarious forces will attempt to drag us away from the polls in the next 13 days, as last ditch efforts by fringe political operatives continue to pop up in some unlikely places.
The coming election feels like a desperate one, and for all involved. Former Vice President Joe Biden is facing a scandal like none other in his career in this late stage of the contest, while President Trump is clinging to dear life in the polls. Voters on both sides of the aisle are finding themselves increasingly targeted by political ads, salacious news stories, and even by their friends and family. This is a turbulent and terrifying situation at times, and the entire nation feels as thought it needs to take a deep breath that it simply cannot muster.
Now, in an even more troubling escalation of political unease, a number of New Hampshire homeowners are enduring threats of having their homes burned down should President Trump win the election.
Police in Milford, New Hampshire, said they’re working to track down the culprits who mailed the letters to several Trump supporters in the small town, while cops in nearby Brookline reported that at least two residents there have also gotten the threatening correspondence, WMUR-TV reported.
The letters were downright frightening.
“Dear neighbors,” the letters read. “You have been identified by our group as being a Trump supporter.”
“Your address has been added into our database as a target for when we attack should Trump not concede the election,” it goes on. “We recommend that you check your home insurance policy and make that it is current and that it has adequate coverage for fire damage.”
Common sense obviously precludes that a criminal organization wouldn’t likely preempt their crimes by announcement, especially one that seeks to somehow benefit the victim, making this either a clear cut case of outrageous voter intimidation, or a ploy by someone to further tarnish the record of the radical left.
