NEW YORK (1010 WINS) --  The New York City headquarters of the Republican party, housed at the Metropolitan Republican Club on East 83rd Street, was vandalized overnight, and according to a note left at the scene, "the attack is merely the beginning."

The doors to the building were spraypainted with two orange anarchist symbols and a window was also broken.

The vanadalism came ahead of a speaking engagement there Friday night by Gavin McInnes, who bills himself as a "Western chauvinist." McInnes, a Canadian who co-founded Vice Media, leads a group called Proud Boys, which has been designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

The vandals also apparently left behind a foreboding note, which slammed the Trump administration for "concentration camps around the county for Latino people."

Of McInnes, the note read, "While these atrocities persist unabated, the Metropolitan Republican Club chose to invite a hipster-fascist clown to dance for them, content to revel in their treachery against humanity."

The note continued, "Our attack is merely a beginning. We are not passive, we are not civil, and we will not apologize. Those of good conscience and clear mind know this state of oppression cannot remain."

Below is the note in its entirety:

“Tonight, we put the Republican Party on notice, in defiance to the policy of mass misery. They have championed.

The U.S. government has established concentration camps around the country for Latino people, shamelessly murdering black people, and continues its war machine that has slaughtered Muslim people with impunity for decades. The so-called “Land of the Free” leads the world in incarceration rates per capita, all the while profiteering in the new plantation within the prison walls.

While these atrocities persist unabated the Metropolitan Republican Club chose to invite a hipster fascist clown to dance for them, content to revel in their treachery against humanity. The Republican Party joined by their spineless partners in crime, the Democrats institute a policy of domestic and foreign terror felt the world over.

Our attack is merely a beginning. We are not passive, we are not civil, and we will not apologize. Those of good conscience and clear mind know this state of oppression cannot remain. The US fascist political system is one of the most savage institutions in history and we will combat it relentlessly until all are free of American barbarism.”
