(Feb. 8, 2022) — Union Station is a famous historical building in Washington D.C.

Built in the early 1900s, it’s an architectural relic of a bygone era. It’s currently a station serving Amtrak and other rail, bus and streetcar lines.

In the early hours of January 28, a day after Holocaust Remembrance Day, the station was vandalized by someone who scrawled over 160 (!) swastikas on the outside walls of the station.

(It’s been pointed out that, technically, Nazi swastikas were oriented at a 45-degree angle while this graffiti wasn’t. But how many people know that nowadays? Although swastikas in different forms have been used worldwide by many groups for many reasons, in the contemporary Western world anybody who draws a swastika is thinking of Nazis.)

At 8:55 a.m. EST on January 28, Bo Erickson of CBS reported the vandalism, tweeting, “There are hand-drawn swastikas all over the entrance to Union Station in D.C. Almost every column.” This was accompanied by photographs.

Who did it?

Was it a Maskless-Unvaccinated-Trump-Supporting-Nazi-White-Supremacist?

After Erickson’s tweet, authoritative voices rushed in to condemn the ‘likely’ culprit.

At 1:24 p.m. EST, Jeff Timmer of the so-called “Lincoln Project” boldly proclaimed in a tweet, ”This is what Trump has emboldened and what the craven GOP has allowed to fester. This is not only racist/anti-semitic, it’s a partisan declaration.”

In other words, it’s Trump’s fault and a Republican did it.

One of Timmer’s followers agreed, tweeting, “Nice….republican voters leaving their calling card. Charming.”

Another chimed in, “The people who did this could just as well have scrawled ‘GOP.’”

They sounded very confident in saying such things, but maybe they should’ve waited a little longer before pontificating, because on the same day, January 28, the true perpetrator was apprehended.

It was 34-year-old Geraldo Pando, a twice-deported Mexican illegal alien.

Oops! So much for the narrative!
