DEBUNKED: Mississippi Church Burning Was A Race Hoax

By Hunter Wallace

Of course it was a hoax:

“JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi authorities arrested a man Wednesday in the burning of an African-American church that was also spray-painted with the words, “Vote Trump.”

Andrew McClinton of Leland, Mississippi, was charged with first degree arson of a place of worship, said Warren Strain, spokesman for the Mississippi Department of Public Safety. McClinton is African-American.

McClinton was arrested in Greenville, where Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church was burned and vandalized Nov. 1, a week before the presidential election. …”

In this case, the arsonist was a member of the congregation. Last year, there was a similar spree of black church burnings in St. Louis which was also exposed as a hoax. None of that stopped the SPLC from hyping the story as “an attempt at voter intimidation.”

Note: Over $230,000 was raised on the internet to rebuild Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church. The bulk of that came from duped Trump supporters.

Update: Hillary Clinton couldn’t resist chiming in on the story:

The Daily Beast, a fake news website, was also duped by the story:

    Another fake media news story. The media has no shame. By continuing to fan the imaginary flames of church arson the MSM is maliciously sowing the seeds of racial discord.

    Must be brought to justice Hillary? How naive and pathetic from the smartest, most qualified person to ever run for office. What a joke.

    Article: Church Burnings: Falsified History Repeats Itself

    “Reminder: Several of the hyped hate crimes against black churches had been committed by black suspects; a significant number of the black churches were, in fact, white churches; and the complex motives behind the crimes included mental illness, vandalism, and concealment of theft. Once again, falsified history is repeating itself. The NAACP, which capitalized on the Clinton-era race hustle, is now pushing the new arson-epidemic narrative. The organization remains shamelessly undaunted after fueling the fake NAACP “bombing” in Colorado Springs earlier this year.

    “The left-wing instigators at the Southern Poverty Law Center, whose stated mission is to “destroy” its political opponents and whose target map and list of social-conservative groups were used by left-wing domestic terrorist Floyd Lee Corkins to shoot up the Washington, D.C., office of the Family Research Council in 2012, baselessly reported: “In what may not be a coincidence, a string of nighttime fires have damaged or destroyed at least six predominately black churches in four southern states in the past week.”

    The SPLC is simply an outlet for disinformation.
