The home of GOP Rep. Nancy Mace was vandalized with Antifa symbols and messaging on Memorial Day.
Her South Carolina home was reportedly targeted by the vandals in the early morning hours.
Mace posted a video of the damage on YouTube.
Additional images of the vandalism shared by the Republican congresswoman on Twitter show Antifa slogans such as “no gods, no masters” and “all politicians are bastards” sloppily scrawled with black spray paint.
“In the early morning hours of Memorial Day, my home, where I’m raising my two children, was vandalized with Antifa symbols and profanity,” Mace wrote in a tweet with photos of the damage. “Although my kids and I are thankfully fine, these criminal acts are unacceptable no matter your politics.”
Mace added, “we should all be able to feel safe in our own homes, regardless of our political beliefs. I sincerely appreciate law enforcement doing all they can to find the criminal trespassers. This is the 2nd time I’ve been targeted for vandalism in the last few months.”
“There is a significant difference between nonviolent protests and criminal acts of intimidation and vandalism. I’m concerned too for my neighbors who’ve been impacted by this appalling criminal behavior,” her Twitter thread continued. I also want to take a moment to thank those same neighbors; so many have reached out to offer their assistance and support. I cannot thank the Charleston community enough.”
She concluded by writing, “as I’ve had time to digest what has happened over the last 24 hours, I also wanted to take a moment to urge people to think about their words and their actions. It’s not just social media, but our words impact real people and impact real lives. We should take it down a notch.”
“I also hope people realize just how hard I’m working for the 1st Congressional District and also how hard I’m working across both sides of the aisle – a particularly difficult task – given the vitriol of our current political environment. We can and we should do better for our kids and for our country.”
The vandals, in addition to the profanity and anarchist symbols, wrote “Pass the Pro Act” on her home — a measure that would penalize companies that violate labor laws and tamp down “right-to-work” laws.
South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster tweeted about the vandalism, saying “No one should ever have their home vandalized and this type of behavior is unacceptable and appalling. We are better than this as a country and divisive acts used for intimidation need to end. I’m certain our law enforcement agencies will find the guilty party.”
It is currently unknown if the police have any suspects.
