Hillary supporters have been caught out doing lots of heavy duty Dirty Politics smears,setups, and forgeries. I fell for one the other day when I published what turned out to be a fake Podesta email. They have put fake emails on social media in an attempt to undermine the credibility of the real emails. It is an effective technique because it calls into question the legitimacy of the real emails. Luckily people can access the real e-mails and do a search of them to check if what they read is genuine.
Another common dirty politics technique in America is to do something bad and then frame the opposition for it. Hillary’s team sent in individuals to start fights during Trump rallies to frame Trump supporters as violent for example.
Yesterday I came across an article about an act of arson that has been blamed on Trump supporters but it is simply not believable and I will explain why.
A historic black church in Mississippi was burned and spray-painted with “Vote Trump” and authorities said on Wednesday it was arson and being probed as a hate crime committed one week before the U.S. presidential election.
…Earlier in the day he said no one was injured in the Tuesday evening blaze, but the church was extensively damaged.
“We’re investigating this as a hate crime,” Greenville Police Chief Delando Wilson told a news conference early on Wednesday. “We feel that the quote on the church is intimidating.
“It tries to push your beliefs on someone else, and this is a predominantly black church and no one has a right to try to influence the way someone votes in this election.”
Wilson told the Wall Street Journal that police on Wednesday evening were interviewing a “person of interest” in connection with the fire but the individual had not been charged.
…Black churches in the U.S. South have long been a base of support for the Democratic Party.
During the U.S. civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s, southern black churches were often targets for arson and bombings by white supremacists.
…The Mississippi Republican Party declined to comment.
In October, the Orange County Republican Party’s office in Hillsborough, North Carolina, was set on fire and a graffiti message left nearby said “leave town or else.”
No arrests have been made in that incident, which Indiana Governor Mike Pence, the Republican vice presidential candidate, called “political terrorism.”
Burning down the church and spray spraying Vote Trump on the side of the building is amateur hour in my opinion and I will explain why. Media have consistently throughout the election worked hard to smear Trump as racist. They also have worked hard to smear his supporters as racist even though the majority of them are not. In reality, the one thing that Trumps supporters have in common across all ages and races is the desire to build the wall to stop illegal immigrants and to halt Muslim immigration.
The working class is sick of their jobs been taken by illegal Mexican immigrants. Everyone else is concerned about Muslim immigration. They are all concerned about Islamic terrorism in America. A much more believable setup would be to burn down a mosque or to do some other violent act in protest against immigrants. That as a narrative would be more believable. There is simply no compelling evidence that Trump supporters (of whom a large chunk are Christians) would think that burning down a church because it had a black congregation would be a good idea. No, if it was a truly racist attack by Trump supporters they would burn a black community building, not a church.
It is the Hillary supporters who are anti religion with the exception of Islam. Catholics support Trump because of his Pro-life stance. Hillary, on the other hand, supports women’s right to late-term abortions.
