FAKE HATE: Arsonist Who Painted ‘Vote Trump” on Black Church Is Black Member of Congregation
What a complete shock!
The racist bastard who burned down an African-American church and painted “Vote Trump” on the side a black member of the congregation.
Of course, the liberal mainstream media ran with the hoax after the church was torched on November 1.
The Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church is 111 years old.
Mississippi authorities have made an arrest in the burning of an African-American church spray-painted with the words, “Vote Trump.”
Mississippi Department of Public Safety spokesman Warren Strain says Andrew McClinton of Leland, Mississippi, who is African-American, is charged with first-degree arson of a place of worship.
McClinton was arrested Wednesday. Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church in Greenville, Mississippi, was burned and vandalized Nov. 1, a week before the presidential election.
It was not immediately clear whether McClinton is represented by an attorney.
Greenville is a Mississippi River port city of about 32,100 people, and about 78 percent of its residents are African-American.
After the fire, Hopewell congregants began worshipping in a chapel at predominantly white First Baptist Church of Greenville.
