Dem campaign aide's cat killed, "LIBERAL" drawn on its body

I just have no words. No fucking words.

Aden, a veteran of the war in Iraq, said in a statement, “To kill a child’s pet is just unconscionable. As a former combat soldier, I’ve seen the best of humanity and the worst of humanity. Whoever did this is definitely part of the worst of humanity.”

Aden made clear that he did not believe Rep. Steve Womack (R-Ark.) or anyone involved with his campaign were involved in the incident, and Beau Walker, Womack’s campaign manager, strongly condemned it.

I give it a day before some right-wing group claims liberals did this just to foment anger against conservatives. Because, clearly, the tree-hugging tofu-eating peaceniks would kill a cat just to make a point.

I’m at a loss. As a person who’s always had animals in the house, it hurts me deeply. And, frankly, it’s textbook terrorism. Violence enacted to instill fear aiming toward political goals. This is terrorism.
