The arson attack on the offices of three conservative organizations in Minnesota raises concerns about the safety of political discourse and expression.

The organizations’ leaders have expressed their commitment to continuing their work despite the attempt to intimidate them.

Polling data indicating low support for President Biden’s reelection adds a broader political context to the current landscape.

“The fires obviously were set by someone,” Center of the American Experiment president John Hinderaker said.

“They targeted conservative organizations. They didn’t firebomb the chiropractors or psychologists or the Manufacturers Alliance. We are cooperating with the FBI to try to identify the perpetrators.”

“The fires occurred around 2:00 am on Sunday morning and were started outside the first-floor offices of American Experiment and TakeCharge, and in the third-floor offices of UMLC. The second floor has no visible fire damage. The three-story building houses a variety of small businesses in addition to the three conservative policy organizations,” the American Experiment said.

“It is extremely concerning that we may have been the target of an arson attack, constituting an act of domestic terrorism,” TakeCharge president Kendall Qualls said.

“We were targeted because we are a conservative black organization disputing the narrative of systemic racism. If we were a left-leaning organization trumpeting the systemic racism mantra, throngs of media outlets would be at our door affirming that we are victims of racism,” he added.

“They can firebomb our offices, but we will never stop promoting the bold truth: The problem of racial disparities is not because of systemic racism. It’s because we have let the crisis of fatherless homes explode to 80+ percent in nearly every major city, including Minneapolis. We are the ONLY national organization promoting the return of the two-parent family and school choice in the [B]lack community. This heinous act emboldens us to be stronger and louder,” he said.

“We will not be intimidated by this apparent act of domestic terrorism. Our resolve to uphold justice and protect the rights of Minnesotans remains unyielding. Despite the setback, the Upper Midwest Law Center will continue to champion the values of fairness, equality, and freedom for all,” Upper Midwest Law Center Senior Counsel James Dickey said.

“We are thankful to local fire rescue for their swift action to put out the fire, and to the FBI, ATF, and local authorities for their quick response and dedication to finding the perpetrators. We hope those responsible are brought to justice for this heinous act of violence,” he added.

Overall, the incidents and political insights underscore the complex and dynamic nature of contemporary American politics, highlighting the need for thoughtful analysis and consideration of diverse perspectives.
