When Barack Obama hypocritically called on Americans in 2011 to introduce more civility into their political discourse, he neglected to offer specifics. Maybe if he had, Christina Ferguson — an avid supporter of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton — might have thought better of vandalizing 30 cars parked outside what she believed was a pro-Donald Trump rally by smearing them with peanut butter.

It turns out the cars Ferguson defaced belonged to members of a local environmental organization who were meeting inside the Amherst Junction, Wisc., town hall.

Via The Independent:

Witnesses claimed the 32-year-old entered the meeting at 9:30pm holding a “family-size jar of low-sodium, creamy natural Jif” peanut butter, shouting about how much she hated the Republican candidate.

Ms Ferguson was asked to leave the premises but shortly after, members went to check the car park to “make sure she wasn’t doing anything to their vehicles after leaving.”

One witness, who allegedly caught Ms Ferguson spreading peanut butter on a car, shouted at her before calling police.

[…]

When pushed as to why she had committed the offence, Ms Ferguson talked about “how much she loved Hillary Clinton and hated Donald Trump,” the complaint says.

And respecting others’ property, not to mention their right to their own political views, is better than running around like a lunatic smearing peanut butter all over cars.

She won’t be doing much more car-buttering any time soon. She was arrested and charged with criminal mischief and public intoxication. Wouldn’t it be ironic, not to mention hilarious, if this nutjob was in jail on Election Day and unable to vote?
