An elderly couple in Seattle, Washington had their house shot at in a drive-by-shooting last Friday in what may have been a politically motivated crime.

The home had a “thin-blue-line” American flag hanging in the front, and the owners believe it played a role in their house being fired at.

Speaking anonymously with KIRO7 for fear of being targeted, one of the homeowners explained, “About twice a week someone was coming by and saying derogatory remarks saying take it down. I didn’t argue with anybody.”

After “ACAB” (all cops are bastards) and “Black Lives Matter” were painted on the street in front of the house, the couple living at the home filed a police report.

Hoping to draw less attention to their home and possibly de-escalate the tension caused over the flag, the couple purchased a smaller flag and placed in in front of the house.

Exposing how violent leftists in Seattle and other Democrat-infested cities across the nation have become, the couple said police told them, “As much as we appreciate your support, we tell our families don’t fly them.”

Expressing his disgust of political violence, one of the homeowners noted, “Everybody has an opinion and we’re entitled to it. You don’t shoot me for it!”

The couple, who are grandparents, told KIRO7 nine shots were fired in total and that six hit either their home or vehicle.

“I went numb. This didn’t really happen did it?” the grandfather said. “I’m fearful because I don’t know who it would be that would get that angry.”
