A man from the state of Michigan says that he might have been targeted for a bombing due to his diehard support for President Donald Trump. An explosive was tossed into his home Saturday morning.
The homeowner, who hails from St. Clair Shores, did not want his identity to be known — probably out of fear of future attacks on his life and property — said that he and his girlfriend were in a bedroom located on the second floor of the house when an explosion went off.
The explosion blew out drywall and shattered glass, along with creating cracks in the ceiling.
“We came out and there was a big mess here,” the man told reporters. “Everything was smoking and I got on the phone and called 911 and they showed up pretty quick.”
He added that he heard two loud booms and that neighbors “thought a bomb went off.”
Surveillance video of the incident showed a man running up to his house and throwing an explosive through a front window, according to the station. Another recording captured a man running out of a pick-up truck and throwing a second explosive.
“We were really scared. I mean when you feel your house shake and explode and smoke, you don’t know what’s going on,” the homeowner told Detroit’s WDIV-TV.
When asked why someone would target his home, he suggested it was possibly due to his political beliefs.
“We’re thinking maybe because I’m a big Trump supporter,” the homeowner said, according to FOX 2. “I mean everyone has people that don’t like them … but not to the extent of trying to blow my house up.”
The homeowner said he’s offering a $10,000 reward for any information concerning the incident.
While it’s not 100 percent known if this was related to his political beliefs, it’s a high likelihood that his support for Trump played at least a small role in what happened.
We’ve been witnessing radical leftists become far more violent in their opposition to those who support the president over the last year. Look at all of the riots and looting that’s taken place thanks to the efforts of Black Lives Matter and other organizations like Antifa.
Hopefully, this man is able to get information about who is responsible for this act of violence and is able to get justice.
