The Seminole County Republican Party headquarters in central Florida was vandalized and the chairwoman of the GOP blamed comments from a caustic tirade from President Joe Biden.

The Seminole County GOP posted about the vandalism on their Facebook page.

"Our office was vandalized this weekend, our answer to hate, clean up and move on," they wrote.

Photos showed the entrance to the offices with an explicit message scrawled with spray paint saying, "EAT S*** FASCISTS." Underneath the words was an anarchist symbol.

Police said they were called about the incident at 10:42 a.m. on Monday. They said the vandals also squirted Super Glue on the lock of the front door. The damage was estimated to add up to about $700. There was no surveillance of the incident.

Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel tweeted about the vandalism and blamed Biden.

"The Seminole County GOP office was vandalized overnight," she wrote. "The criminals echoed Biden’s 'fascists' slander. There is no place for violence in our political discourse, and the GOP will not be intimidated."

McDaniel was referring to the president calling pro-Trump Republicans "semi-fascists" during a campaign rally speech on Friday.

“What we’re seeing now, is either the beginning or the death knell of an extreme MAGA philosophy," said Biden. "It’s not just Trump, it’s the entire philosophy that underpins the - I’m going to say something, it’s like semi-fascism."

While many were incensed at the political vandalism, some on the left implied that the incident was committed by people on the right trying to frame liberals.

"I love to vandalize the seminole county GOP offices while carefully ensuring the crossbar of my anarchy 'A' stays within the bounding circle of the glyph," tweeted Mattie Lubchansky, a transgender comic book illustrator who created a comic about Antifa.
