This is the nature of the early 21st century American civil war.
An explosive device was found on Monday in a mailbox at the Westchester County home of the extreme left billionaire global funding activist George Soros.
Federal and state law enforcement officials responded to the scene in Katonah, N.Y., a hamlet in the upscale town of Bedford in northern Westchester, after the Bedford Police Department received a call about a suspicious package at about 3:45 p.m, according to The New York Times.
Bomb squad technicians “proactively detonated” it.
The current civil war is targeted in nature and can include either leftists or rightists disturbing political figures while dining or otherwise in public, to social media outlets banning generally rightists high-profile platform users, to now explosive devices.
The civil war is about individual-targets and event-driven targets rather than geographical in nature. It remains to be seen how aggressive the war will get, escalation is almost certain.
Trump fanboys are not going to like this but the divisiveness on both sides is largely stoked by the president.
Immediately after the election on November 10, 2016, I wrote:
Trump supporters are rabid, they will likely follow him down almost any hell hole.
These people are not going to listen to our arguments for smaller government. Their man is in power.The Trump masses are large and ignore any dangerous turn by him. Below is the Trump crowd in Houston last night.... during the same period that Trump continued to play footsie with Saudi Arabia and announced plans to end a nuclear weapons agreement with Russia and taunted Iran.

This does not mean the Left should be given a pass. Their counter-movement to Trump is getting increasingly violent in posture.
For the most part, targets remain other activists of one form or another rather than the general public. This is a major plus. However, no doubt there will be calls from both sides for government to step in and put controls on the opposition as things continue to escalate.
This will mean more controls on all of us.
It is getting caught in this crossfire that will result in a further loss of privacy and freedom for all of us.

Trump is stirring the pot with the heat turned high which is moving the country in a direction away from liberty toward base emotionally charged opposing groups desirous to gain power---and supporting anything to gain that power. Liberty is about shrinking government power, not what is going on now. The calls for violence by leading Democrats in the clip above does not have a comparison in the Bush eras, or the Clinton era or the Obama era. They were all evil bastards. Might point is things are much worse now with temperatures extremely high. This is when very dangerous things can occur rapidly.
