Blood Vials Delivered to RNC, Goes on Lockdown

Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington went on lockdown for about two hours Wednesday morning after a suspicious package was delivered to the building.

The package contained two vials of blood, as well as a Chinese philosophical text and two ice packs, according to U.S. Capitol police.

The ice packs were leaking, but the vials of blood were sealed.

Capitol Police first responded to the incident at approximately 7:45 a.m., when a hazmat team at the office near Capitol Hill evacuated staffers from the building.

RNC chair Michael Whatley called it a “revolting attack” and said the RNC remains “unintimidated and undeterred.”

“No matter what violent tactics Biden’s extreme left supporters try next, we stand firm in our mission to deliver greater freedom and opportunity for all Americans, and we won’t back down.”

There are no reports available about the “Chinese philosophical text,” but you have to wonder about the message.

Some common quotes by Confucius, Chinese thinker and philospher who pointed out the importance of learning, include:

 “Never impose on others what you would not choose for yourself.”

 “Real knowledge is to know the extent of one’s ignorance.”

 “The Superior Man is aware of Righteousness, the inferior man is aware of advantage.”
