A Monroe, Wisconsin restaurant and next-door store were vandalized with expletives and vile slurs because the restaurant was hosting an event for a conservative woman, Charity Barry, who is running against liberal Democrat Mark Pocan for U.S. Congress.
Charity Barry posted photos of the vandalism to her Facebook page. Vince’s Pizza and Dollar General were targeted, and police are investigating. The graffiti included the phrase ACAB, which is a leftwing slur against cops that stands for All Cops Are Bastards (it was widely seen during the rioting in Kenosha). The slurs included the juvenile, vile phrases, eat sh*t Charity, be gay do crime, f*ck this sh*t, and f*ck the restaurant next door.
Pocan has been silent about the vandalism.
“Once again, the tolerant left shows their true colors! This is the restaurant where I was going to host an event this evening with Representative Janel Brandtjen. It is beyond disgusting that someone would harm the business owner in this way because of political differences. This hostility is unacceptable!” she wrote. Learn more about Charity Barry here.
“But I will not be deterred in any way! We will still all be in Monroe tonight at a different venue fighting for law and order, freedom and liberty, and this country we all dearly love! Join us tonight! Message me for new address. Thank you! #retirepocan #hirebarry #LeadRight #iwillnotgiveup #standstrong.”
Kim Babler, Second Congressional District Republican Chair, said, “This kind of behavior is very sad. For us to become a country that can conduct elections in a civil way, we’re all going to have to resolve to respect one another. Certainly, the Republicans that I have talked to plan to do that.”
