first used the spray paint then burned it. I mean, after all, they are followers of the CONald. That loud whistling sound is from the wind blowing through that vast emptiness between their ears.

All it takes is a tiny bit of encouragement to get racists to do something hideous. Almost anything will do, even the thought of this orange fool as an actual President.

I'm surely glad no one was hurt from the church.

The first thing the Rs do is blame the Dems - I expect that's happening in Greenville as well.

That's the sad part. There have been a few incidents in the last year where DUers rush to condemn the usual suspects, only to find out that it wasn't the usual suspects.

Remove those, and the usual suspects are actually slightly less usual.

We do the same thing when an (R) site is attacked, virtual or brick-and-mortar, and declare those incidents to be false-flag operations.


Same goes in general for black churches that burn. While a decent percentage of such arsons aren't solved, more than you'd think are set by not-the-usual-suspects. Sometimes disgruntled church workers, sometimes just by hooligans from the area (and since black churches tend to be in black communities ...). We're on a side, and we rush to justify that side.

The KKK is alive and well, and emboldened by the Orange Grand Wizard.

That cheeto faced shit gibbon j--z trumpet has brought about this garbage by whipping up all the fucksticks into a frenzy.

And now we have two dead police officers on the deck and a burned church to show for Agent Fuckface Von Asshole's careless spewing of hatred.
