It’s starting. The offices of pro-life Wisconsin Family Action were targeted overnight with arson and vandalism. Molotov cocktails were throw into the building, exploding with such force that books and papers from within are strewn all the way to the street.
Graffiti was sprayed on an undamaged exterior wall, with the chilling message “if abortions aren’t safe, you aren’t either.” Another message contained the Antifa symbol. Police have confirmed there was at least one unexploded Molotov cocktail that was thrown through a window was among the debris, and other Molotovs were thrown and successfully exploded, causing the fire and destruction.
Here’s the interior destruction.
The Madison Fire Department says “Fire investigators believe this fire was intentionally set, and the incident is being investigated as an arson.”
Videos and photos are being posted to Twitter by a MSM that obviously wishes they could cover it up.
I love how this guy said “somebody” as if it’s a mystery.

The Madison Police Department has issued a statement.
The Madison Police Department understands members of our community are feeling deep emotions due to the recent news involving the United States Supreme Court.
Early Sunday morning, our team began investigating a suspicious fire inside an office building on the city’s north side.
It appears a specific non-profit that supports anti-abortion measures was targeted.
Our department has and continues to support people being able to speak freely and openly about their beliefs.
But we feel that any acts of violence, including the destruction of property, do not aid in any cause.
We have made our federal partners aware of this incident and are working with them and the Madison Fire Department as we investigate this arson.
There are additional photos from the Daily Mail here.
This is only the start.
