Just days after U.S. Sen. Martin Heinrich’s Santa Fe office was vandalized with red paint in support of Hamas terrorists’ attacks on Israel beginning in early October, the state capitol building in Santa Fe is the latest victim of the extremist depravity.
“More vandalism in Santa Fe — this time on the west steps of the state Capitol,” sharing photos, Daniel Chacon of the Santa Fe New Mexican wrote.
“Among the items left behind was a wooden board with ‘Free Gaza’ and ‘Viva Palestine’ written on it,” he added. The board also read, “Land Back.” Fake body bags accompanied the red paint.
According to the New Mexican, “The Capitol vandalism was discovered around 7:30 a.m. Friday morning as employees approached the west-side entrance, said Raphael Drhett Baca, the Capitol’s building superintendent. Surveillance cameras captured video showing four people, all hooded and clad in black, jumping out of a black SUV at 10:34 p.m. Thursday. ‘They were done by 10:36 p.m.,’ Baca said.”
Sen. Heinrich’s office was hit with similar hateful sentiments.
The building, located on Marcy Street in the capital city, was painted with the words “HEINRICH STOP THE GENOCIDE,” along with “FREE PALESTINE” and “CEASEFIRE NOW” tagged on the windows of the adobe office building. A large puddle of red paint was then dumped near the office’s front door.
Reports indicate the paint was still “bubbling” when staff discovered it on Tuesday.
The attacks on the state Capitol and Heinrich’s office are just a microcosm of violent anti-Jewish sentiments ravaging the world as Israel continues to defend itself against violent attacks that have claimed thousands of lives.
