When political violence, vandalism or chaos takes place two things usually happen: the left blames the right and the right blames the left. It doesn’t matter who the target is, the other side is responsible.
When congressmen were targeted by a liberal socialist Bernie Sanders supporter, liberals blamed the right’s failure to implement gun control, while the right blamed the violent rhetoric about “ripping” your health care away and giving your money to rich people, as well as Republicans helping the Russians steal elections.
When news of the explosive devices was sent to the households of Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, George Soros, CNN, Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), and former CIA Director John Brennan (who is a contributor for MSNBC), the left immediately started declaring Donald Trump was responsible. The right declared these attacks are part of a false flag attempt to influence the elections by liberals.
Less than 48 hours ago, Trump told a crowd chanting "CNN sucks!" that "I don't like them either," and incited a "Lock her up!" chant. Both CNN and Hillary Clinton were targeted by mail bombs within 38 hours. https://t.co/CFk73iAoC2 pic.twitter.com/7yGHFuahVa

Anybody who had a hand in these bombs is a terrorist. This is violence or the threat of violence for a political end. Period.
As of this writing, no one knows. When we find out, no one will care. They instead will be trying to figure out how to make this an effective weapon for November 6.
This is where we are as Americans. Yes, most of the threats of violence we have seen recently are from radical left-wingers. The harassing at restaurants, screaming in the halls of Congress and attacks on candidates are largely the purview of the liberal left mob. That mob is excused. The media defends them and highlights the offenders as guardians of American representative democracy.
This is all unacceptable. it should all be condemned in the strongest possible terms. The individual or individuals responsible should be tried and fried.
Excuses should not be made. Unfortunately, the reaction by most Americans to situations like this is almost wholly dependent on who the terrorist is.
