The Young Democrats of North Carolina issued a press release threatening violence if the city is selected to host the 2020 Republican National Convention.
“Any potential claim to an economic impact from the Convention will undoubtable be outweighed by the civil unrest and reputational harm we would recieve [sic] from welcoming Trump’s divisive rhetoric to our community,” the release says.
YDNC tweeted the whole press release.

“‘Donald Trump’s Republican Party does not reflect the values of our city,’ said Young Democrats of Mecklenburg County President Jonathan Peebles,” the post reads. “‘The City Council and Leaders throughout Charlotte should reject any attempt to bring the RNC to Charlotte.'”
YDNC President Anne Evangelista, a student at Elon University School of Law, accused the Republican Party of “spew[ing] vitriol and contempt towards people across the state [of North Carolina],” offering no proof or examples of such behavior.
Meanwhile, the Democrats have indeed caused trouble in North Carolina and in the city of Charlotte.
In October, 2016 the Orange County Republican Party headquarters in Hillsborough, NC was firebombed and otherwise vandalized by far leftists. “Nazi Republicans get out of town or else,” was spray painted on the building.
Far left group Black Lives Matter cost the taxpayers of the City of Charlotte $4.6 million after riots in the metropolitan area of the city in September, 2016. BLM was rioting after a police officer was not charged in the shooting of Keith Lamont Scott.
The only concrete examples of “vitriol” and “contempt” towards the people of North Carolina have come from the left.
A local reporter told Big League Politics that the group is planning on hosting protests at the Charlotte City Council on July 16 and July 23.
Big League Politics reached out to the media contact listed on the press release, Lorenzo Pedro, but did not receive a comment in time for publication.
