Historic church in Mississippi burned and tagged with pro-Trump message. Welcome to Donald Trump's America.

Courtesy of WDAM: 

Authorities are now investigating the burning and vandalism of a historic church in Greenville as a hate crime. 

Tuesday night, at 9:15 p.m. authorities responded to the scene of the 111-year-old Hopewell M.B. Church. The church was not only burned, but also vandalized with the words "Vote Trump" spray painted on the side of the building. 

Officials said during a press conference held on Wednesday that the incident is now being investigated as a hate crime and Greenville Police Chief Freddie Cannon called the incident "a form of voting intimidation". 

We're told that there is heavy fire, water and smoke damage in the sanctuary of the church. The pastor's study and the kitchen also were damaged.

What's more this was found in the yard of the suspect named in the case of the murder of those two police officers in Iowa.
I think this is just the beginning.

I would bet that we are going to see a lot more of this kind of aggression directed at minorities, government employees, black churches, mosques, and Democratic headquarters all the way up to November, and afterwards.

And that will be true whether Donald Trump gets elected or not.

He has opened the door into a type of ugliness that will be in no hurry to run back and hide in the shadows anytime soon.

    And, the ugly man remains silent when these events happen, never bothering to condemn such actions from his followers. At least I have not read anything from him when these occur -- other than "Hillary did it" type comments. Great leader who deserves to run our country? I think NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      If you look at the last year of terrible acts of violence. Trump announced at each even before the media. Yep, train wrecks, church shootings, pulse bar, fires in calif, shootings in san Bernardino, flint water issue, and so many more. Trump was like right there. Gee? Just like his campaign made it happen. Gee, imagine that? Remember? He is a pathological narcissist liar and admits to bribing and extortion..

    Palin triggered it went she went rogue in 08 and started tossing red meat to the billy-bobs and teased out their deep seated white resentment/entitlement juices.

    The church burning is a really tragic outcome of the endless GOP campaign for the presidency. None of their candidates cared about "all the people" in this country and the Party went on to nominate the most racist, nativist, vilest and the most vulgar member of the gang. Just to prove how little Republicans care about the rest of us.

    In addition, we can expect to see open nastiness if not violence directed toward women who are not modeled after Barbie dolls.

    It seems to me that the FBI should be paying more attention to the rise of the KKK this past year or so and the activities of other white supremacist organizations. Money has been coming their way and their message is clearly subversive and dangerous. Their criminal behavior is blatant and far more dangerous than any possible emails involving Hillary Clinton.

      Absolutely! And Trump plays coy with these groups. David Duke has completely aligned his run for Senate to Trump and WTF tell me how he got over 5% in polls so that he could be allowed to attend the candidate debate.

      They are too busy reading thousands of emails.

  9. Sadly, I think your posts from now on will be about these incidents: arson, shootings, booby-trapping, etc,. -- hate crimes -- just like you often used to post incidents of children with guns killing themselves, their siblings or parents.

    But if Trump gets in or not, fear children will soon catch up -- on purpose.

    Honestly, this reminds me of straight up democrat tricks. Wouldn't surprise me one bit if democrats burned their own church and spray painted vote Trump on it.

    Don't you hate christianity and churches anyways?

      You, 6:31 AM, are an idiot. You don't believe that the Confederate flag waving Trump supporter who killed the 2 Iowa Police Officers is a Democrat, do you? You Trumpanzees are a sick bunch.

    2. Anonymous4:09 PM

      I do remember that the Dallas shooter who killed 5 police officers claimed allegiance to BLM, and his purpose was to kill white police officers... BLM, the terrorist organization that has been co-opted by the democratic party.

      You are a naive fool 7:33.

      Maybe one day you will wake up to the dirty tricks of the democratic party.

    As a northern, I did not realize they were still fighting the civil war down south until I made the mistake of doing some graduate work in Mississippi. I was told frequently Yankee go home, it was written on my car, I was also told they consider anyone that lives above the Mason-Dixon line a New Yorker, specifically a New York Jew and they hate them more than the rest of us Yankees.

    Then the hypocrites had the audacity to lecture me on Christian southern hospitality, what a farce. More like smile to your face while knifing you in the back hospitality.

    The fact that Trump is a New Yorker and popular in MS, is interesting, I guess in his case his racisms overrides his New Yorkness.

    I think we have to be prepared for more hate crimes if Trump wins, they will feel embolden to do publicly what they have been “hiding” for years.

    Also anyone with an absentee ballot should MAIL IT TODAY !!!!

      The south is amusing, isn't it?

      Just a bunch of angry cousin-humpers who can't get over the fact that they got their asses handed to them over 140 years ago.

      "The South will rise again"? Sure buddy, whatever, here, have another Budweiser to wash down your heaping helping of delusion.

      Screw those inbreds and fuck you Palin and Trump and the Tea Bagger brigade for giving them a voice.

    Alot of that too has to do with people in this country being mentally ill. People without brain chemical imbalances don't behave that way. We Americans are very unhealthy physically and it shows in our mental health. We need leaders in this country who recognize this and start to advocate for healthier citizens. But no, we have to dicker around with the moral majority agenda and we get the high maintenance type leadership like Palin, Putin and Trump. America is a country that's highly dependent on its' many addictions and we go with the guy who promises us Nirvana. Hillary offers a boring day to day management and Donald offers pipedreams. Who you gonna chose? Plus you have to factor in that our minds are always being changed for us. Last week Clinton was flying high then Comey sent the vague letter then polls came down. Trump's gotten a little more cockier this week. Like he knows something. Like maybe he was told that Putin has his back. I was wondering last night, why are we getting this hacked email stuff from the dnc and not the rnc? Why don't someone hack the rnc? Does the rnc have more hacking capability than the rnc? I mean I am sure Donald's income tax is on the net somewhere. In this day and age, I thought anything could be gleaned on the net should a determined person chose to do so. Curious. Are we being fed? And why? And who's doing the feeding? Hmmm. Getting curiouser and curiouser.

    The Deplorables believe the Democrats did this to smear Trump and gain sympathy. No, really.

    In the end, I don't think anything said by anyone is going to change any minds on either side.

    We need to depend on the critical thinking skills and cold logic of the undecideds. Unfortunately, this has been a race of popularity and emotion. In that, Trump is superior. Too many people can see past his facade. Or they don't care. Or that is exactly why they like him.

    We are totally screwed.

    It IS going to get worser and worser because they feel there's safety in numbers, since others think the same, they must be right. The problem is, the one who's stoking the fire isn't reprimanding it, and his silence is taken as consent.
    I'm an Atheist and would never entertain the thought of doing anything bad to someone else's property. Some of the architecture and history are so entwined, they're like museums where people can learn there's not much that divides people than people think.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
