Occasional podcast guest and friend of the Grok Warner Todd Huston has found himself a target of the “tolerant left™.” After many years as a conservative writer without issue, someone or a pack of someones has taken to vandalizing his home and property.
Over the course of this year, someone in my neighborhood has targeted me. At first, I thought it was just random vandals as the attacks were penny-ante nonsense, but now I am pretty sure it is being done by someone who knows I am a conservative writer who has a body of work stretching back to 2001 and they are trying to intimidate me.
It started early this year when a flag was pulled off my flag-staff and left ripped and in pieces on my lawn.
Two ruined flags, and an egged garage door later, the idea that it might just be hooligans was still a functional explanation. And then something else happened.
On the night of July 1, the U.S. Army flag that I fly in honor of my son who is in the service was scorched and on it was written in marker “die dogs.”
This was a bit more threatening and more specific than just mindless destruction. It seemed directly aimed at the U.S. military and me personally.
The flag vandalism was followed by another egging with some graffiti added, labeling him a racist.
At about 1 AM or so on Saturday morning, I was awakened by a noise outside my home. I can’t really say what the noise was as it woke me from a deep sleep. It was just a shout that awoke me. I looked at my window and saw what struck me as a strange light outside. So, I went to the front door…
And saw my car interior on fire…
There are pictures aplenty here. Warner also notes that the police have not been much help. But the commenters have almost universally suggested the same thing. Security Cams.
Here’s to hoping he gets those cameras and has something “interesting” and incriminating to give the local PD.
If you’d like to help Warner with the cost of another used car, there is a GoFundMe campaign online.
