South Carolina Representative Nancy Mace spoke out on the Sean Hannity Show Tuesday after her home was defaced with graffiti on Memorial Day, saying it was part of a pattern of violence against conservatives.

She also resisted accusations that she faked the incident.

The vandals wrote messages such as “f*** you Nancy” and “all politicians are b*****ds” in black spray paint, as well as several Antifa “A” symbols on the walkways around her house to indicate that the perpetrators were members of the decentralized far-left, anti-fascist movement.

“This was my home, and honestly it was scary,” she said. ‘…I’m a single mom and I have two kids and I’m sad for my kids because they had to see this, and I’m sad for my neighbors. They didn’t ask for it, but this is left after right, after us conservatives.’

South Carolina Representative Nancy Mace spoke out on the Sean Hannity Show Tuesday after vandals defaced her home with graffiti on Memorial Day, saying it was part of a pattern of violence against conservatives by the left.

Mace said what happened to her home was an example of the kind of violence perpetrated by the left against conservatives in the country, such as the 2017 shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise during a baseball game, and when Senator Rand Paul’s neighbor attacked him, also in 2017.

“We see the left burning, looting and destroying our cities and our properties,” she said, adding that she had previously been the victim of vandalism in October 2020 when someone hit the word ‘f***’ on her car.

In addition, Mace challenged “conspiracy theories” created online by what she said is a staffer of former President Barack Obama.

It was a possible reference to allegations by political writer Bess Kalb that Mace had staged the vandalism.

Mace also appeared to backtrack on allegations that she faked the incident, possibly referring to political writer Bess Kalb, whom she called a staffer for Barack Obama.  Although Kalb was never an Obama associate, she did work with Hillary Clinton on a few occasions

On Twitter, Kalb appeared to draw comparisons between Mace’s handwriting and that of the vandals, suggesting that it was suspicious that the graffiti appeared to avoid any painted areas of the house.

“Not to handle this for you in crisis situations, but you have to release your highly visible video from the doorbell camera and explain this series of strange coincidences, or you’ll probably have to resign,” she wrote.

Although Kalb was never a staffer for Obama, she had worked with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on a handful of occasions.

Mace replied that she immediately reported it to the police and provided photo and video evidence, and told Hannity that if people were skeptical, they could visit her website.

“If your viewers want to see that police report, they want to see the photos, photographic evidence and videos I took when this happened, and then go online to my website,” she said.

A press release on the site regarding the incident includes photos she previously posted to Twitter of the graffiti and a police report she appears to have filed.

It appeared that the vandalism was linked to Mace’s ‘no’ vote in March this year on ‘The Protecting the Right to Organisation’, otherwise known as the PRO Act.

“This is the second time I’ve been the target of vandalism in the past few months,” she continued, adding that the police are trying to find the vandals.

“There is a significant difference between nonviolent protests and criminal acts of intimidation and vandalism,” Mace wrote.

“I am also concerned about my neighbors who have been affected by this horrendous criminal behavior.”

Mace said she was not bent by the vandalism and would continue to fight for her convictions

Some other notes in the graffiti said “no gods, no masters” and demanded Mace “pass the pro-act.”

The PRO Act stands for ‘The Protecting the Right to Organisation’ and is a bill that would amend previous labor laws to extend ‘various employment protections related to the right of workers to organize and bargain collectively in the workplace’.

Mace took office as a representative of South Carolina’s 1st congressional district on January 3, 2021. In March 2021, the PRO bill was resubmitted and passed by the Democrat-controlled House. Mace voted ‘no’ to HR 842.

Mace said she was unbent by vandalism

“I want to say one thing if the people who did this, the person or people who came to my front door who did this, think I’m going to be intimidated,” she said. “Well, they thought wrong. I’m going to work harder and stronger and fight more for my beliefs and my core values ​​and my beliefs and protecting my children and my country. They’re all worth saving.’
