In the two weeks since and debated for the whole world to see, many Congressional Democrat incumbents and nominees have been asked whether or not they support Joe Biden.

In Virginia, reactions have been mixed. Some such as Rep. Gerry Connolly and Sen. Mark Warner were not impressed by the President's performance.

Others, such as Congressman Bobby Scott and VA-10 Democrat nominee and current State Senator Suhas Subramanyam, have said they're all in on Biden.

One Democrat who has refused to answer this question.

The Capitol Hill office of Democratic Rep. was disgracefully vandalized on Independence Day. Posters depicting over 100 hostages, including eight Americans, held by Hamas in Gaza were torn down, shredded and strewn across the hallway. Schneider, who is Jewish and represents Illinois' 10th Congressional District, condemned the incident on the social media platform X, calling it “a vile act of hate.”

“This was a shameful act on any day, but especially on July 4, our country's Independence Day,” Schneider stated. “Sadly, it was but one of many hateful, un-American actions that took place across the country on the day we celebrate freedom and democracy.”

The act of drew swift condemnation from fellow Rep. Richie Torres (D-N.Y.). Taking to X, Torres expressed his outrage, stating, “If you're tearing down the posters of hostages, you're not ‘pro-Palestinian.' You're pro-Hamas. You're not just Anti-Israel. You're Antisemitic. There's a special place in hell for those who vandalize posters of the kidnapped.”

The incident follows a troubling pattern of threatening tactics targeting Schneider. Last week, dozens of agitators gathered outside his suburban Chicago home at 2:30 am, shouting anti-Israel chants and accusing him of complicity in genocide.

The masked perpetrators vowed to continue their campaign of intimidation and harassment.

Since the Oct. 7, 2023, attack by Hamas on Israeli settlements, there has been a dramatic increase in antisemitic incidents worldwide.
