After news of the fire-bomb attack on our office spread like wildfire (no pun intended), the Wisconsin Family Action team received many messages of support and well-wishes…but we have also received some alarming comments, and disturbing voicemails, too.
Here are some of the quotes from those voicemails:
- “I hope you all burn with it…that’s what you deserve.”
- “Whoever set that fire is a true American patriot. You people are just utter filth of the planet, and it’s too bad your whore mothers didn’t abort each and every last one of you. Hopefully you all get cancer…for the betterment of all humanity.”
- “Burn, little Jesus freaks, burn, burn, burn!”
Some of voicemail messages are impossible to provide a transcript for because the quotes would be a string of several “expletives” in a row.
It’s not pleasant, but you can listen to the voicemails we have received by clicking here.
We now have more information on the perpetrators of this attack. An anarchist group by the name of Jane’s Revenge claimed responsibility.
WFA president Julaine Appling has issued the following statement:
“Now that the Madison Police Department has been made aware of who is claiming responsibility for the attack, I expect that they, along with Governor Evers and Attorney General Josh Kaul, will move to prosecute the perpetrators to the very fullest extent of the law. Tolerance cannot be a one-way street, and if we are to preserve a free society, we must always hold accountable those who promise violence against others and their deeply held beliefs. I echo the concerns of many other Wisconsinites who believe as we do, that we should all be able to live out our beliefs without intimidation and violence.”
“Let me very clear: WFA will not stop lawfully fighting for the unborn no matter what threats may come.
“We are also releasing a sample of voicemails received at our office voicemail or received on the personal phones of our staff. These voicemails are just a taste of the deluge of threatening and hateful messages we have received at Wisconsin Family Action since the Mothers’ Day arson and vandalism at our office.”

WFA President Julaine Appling appeared on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” show Monday evening to discuss the attack on our office.
“This is fundamentally because we hold a Christian worldview and actually live it out when I work with legislators or when we talk in churches or when we take our message to the media. That is the core issue,” Julaine told Tucker.
Tucker noted that Christians are the kindest and most committed to human rights of any group of people. “Why do they [the left] hate you so much?” he asked Julaine.
“When there is an impediment in the way of the liberal agenda, they have to find a way to sideline you, to silence you. I’ve even been told their ultimate goal is to destroy us. I’d say they tried that on Sunday morning under the cloak of darkness when they attacked our office.”
“They want us to go away. They want us to be cowed into silence. And I’m telling you right now, they picked the wrong group if that’s what they want because this has made us stronger. This has made us bolder. We are not going to go away…We are speaking truth,” said Julaine.
These attacks are made possible by weak leadership that refuses to speak out against acts of violence, much less investigate the incident and hold the perpetrators accountable. While Wisconsin US Sen. Tammy Baldwin condemned the attack on Twitter, the rest of her Democrat colleagues have remained silent.
The White House released a statement condemning the attack, but more needs to be done. We need an overt call to stop the violence. “We need stronger leadership that makes it very clear that we don’t just disagree with it. We are calling for it to stop right now,” said Julaine.
Fox News Digital even reached out to the offices of several Wisconsin Democrat lawmakers for comment and none of them responded.
Unfortunately, WFA was not the only victim of the left’s inhumanity this weekend. A number of other pro-life advocates, including pregnancy centers and churches, were vandalized or damaged by leftist groups.
Approximately 100 pro-choice demonstrators targeted a Catholic church in New York City, forcing the church to cancel a monthly pro-life event. Leftists also wrote “[expletive] CPCs” in graffiti on a clinic in Portland, Oregon and “My body, my choice” on a Catholic church in Boulder, Colorado, among several other incidents throughout the country. “CPC” stands for “crisis pregnancy centers.” You would think providing help and resources to a woman in crisis would be something both sides of the aisle could agree on, but apparently not.
As we continue to do God’s work, we should expect to face persecution. This is a sign that we are making a difference and that the devil is threatened by us. We must also, however, expect our leaders to do everything in their power to put an end to violence; and we should hold them accountable when they fail to do their jobs.
