Caroline Reilly, a reporting fellow for the Rewire News Group, has called for more arson attacks against anti-abortion groups. She also suggested an escalation to deadly political violence.
Reilly in her Twitter bio boasts of writing for GQ, Town & Country, Vulture, Insidehook and others, says on her website that she is "an award winning journalist," and writes about "...reproductive health, men's fashion, sex and more." Her website also says that "...her scholarly writing on abortion access for young people earned national recognition."
The writer retweeted a New York Times article about an anti- abortion group’s headquarters in Madison, Wisconsin, having been vandalized with Molotov cocktails and wrote, "More of this. May these people never know a moment of peace or safety until they rot in the ground."
Reilly’s tweets are now protected.
Vandals set fire to the Wisconsin Family Action office early Sunday morning. Madison Police Department Chief Shon Barnes said in a statement, "It appears a specific non-profit that supports anti-abortion measures was targeted.
Madison police spokeswoman Stephanie Fryer said, "Due to the suspicious nature of this fire, our arson investigators responded. They are actively working this case at this time." The department alerted its federal partners and are investigating the arson with the Madison Fire Department.
The report confirmed that nobody was injured. Julaine Appling, president of the advocacy organization said, "Imagine if somebody had been in the office when this happened. They would have been hurt."
"This is the local manifestation of the anger and the lack of tolerance from the pro-abortion people toward those of us who are pro-life," Appling added.
According to Post Millennial editor-at-large Andy Ngo, "Without evidence, many leftists responding to the firebombing are spreading a conspiracy that it was a false flag attack. The message left at the scene ("1312") & the use of improvised firebombs suggest it was an Antifa &/or anarchist attack."
The vandalism is one of many incidents erupting across the US since the leaked Roe decision. Pro-abortion activists in Virginia and Maryland on Saturday gathered around the homes of Supreme Court justices who were signed onto the draft opinion. Justice Samuel Alito and his family were reportedly moved to an undisclosed location over the weekend for their safety due to threats from activists.
Reilly's representatives and the Rewire News Group did not reply to The Post Millennial's requests for comment.
