Bomb Threats Made to Loudoun’s GOP Campaign Headquarters

Bomb threats were called and emailed in to the Loudoun County Republican Committee’s Victory Office in Sterling this morning, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office.

Just before 9 a.m., the campaign office staff received a phone call from a person threatening to bomb the building at 42 Pidgeon Hill Drive. They later received an email with a similar threat, according to Kraig Troxell, sheriff’s office public information officer.

Troxell said the threat was not very specific.

“We searched the area and found nothing suspicious,” he said.

This is the second time in just more than a week that someone reportedly made threats to the Republican campaign headquarters. Last Sunday, the sheriff’s office received a report that someone overheard another person talking about vandalizing the office. The sheriff’s office has since focused more resources in the area near the Republican campaign headquarters.

“In an abundance in caution we’ve been doing directive patrols in that area,” Troxell said.

    I’m glad the sheriff is a Republican. I wouldn’t trust a Democrat sheriff to not look the other way, downplay, and ignore the matter in order to suppress Republican efforts.

    I said it last week. Why does Loudoun have a problem with radicalized left-wingers?

    Dickonson wouldn’t know a “radicalized left-winger” if one walked up to him. This is talk from the Twilight Zone of politics—where reactionaries are “true conservatives,” conservatives are “liberals,” and liberals are “communist,” “Marxist,” and “radicals.”

    This country has no radical politics to speak of. Where elsewhere socialist politics are a commonplace, here yesterday’s “communist scare” made “socialism” a dirty word that only Bernie Sanders dared embrace in name, but his candidacy brought a groundswell of support from millions of Americans with whom his rhetoric resonated.

    Charlie, we’ve locally produced three left-wing wanna-be terrorists/mass murderers in the past few years.

    Farooque Ahmed of Ashburn. Arrested in ’10 for plotting to blow up metro.
    Mohamed Jollah of Sterling. Arrested in ’16 for plotting a mass killing of Virginia National Guardsmen
    Floyd Lee Corkins of Herndon. Arrested ’12. Virulently pro-gay. Started shooting people at the pro traditional marriage Family Research Council.

    Now we have bomb threats from some (presumably) local Democrat against the GOP after a similar threat was overheard in the parking lot a few weeks ago (same person? different person?).

    If any more of your Democrat buddies are plotting a murderous activity, please let the FBI know. When they aren’t busy sweeping emails under the rug, I hear they still do look into these things.

    You’re half correct in your assessment Mr. McKeon – labels do get switched around as needed. I would offer that some leftists are not “radicalized,” but rather “weaponized” by the very same power-crazed democrat machine which completely disenfranchised Senator Sanders and his supporters.

    I held a glimmer of hope that Senator Sanders and his following would expose and destroy the corporate-Wall Street owned DNC, much the way that Mr. Trump exposed the corporate owned RNC. But Alas, as the Wiki-Leaks emails show, the powerful and connected of the DNC not only despised and hated the grassroots Sanders movement, they crushed it.

    In my experience, when people have nothing good to offer, they threaten, intimidate, and question the stability of anyone who doesn’t agree with them. Those people are thugs. I’ve seen them all over the world. Right, Left, or some perversion with a religious bent, they’re all the same.

    Here in Loudoun, we tend to shy away from such things. At least we used to. Could you imagine the uproar if someone had spray painted on the sidewalk of a Hillary supporter that they were “watching you?” Oh my. Could you imagine if the democrat field office in Leesburg kept getting threats? It would be “Call out the National Guard!”

    Double standards — no way to go through life.
