Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church after fire

Andrew McClinton, 45, of Leland, Mississippi is the black American accused of scrawling “VOTE TRUMP” on the side of a predominately black church in Greenville, Mississippi before setting it on fire.

Interestingly, the Associated Press reported that despite the message spray-painted on the side of the building, “the state fire marshal said investigators do not believe the fire was politically motivated…”

McClinton, who has an extensive criminal history, is “charged with first degree arson of a place of worship.”

The crime was rewarded with massive media attention at the time, including a full article at the New York Times. But alas, the narrative so desperately sought after by the left was once again shattered. At the time Greenville Mayor Errick Simmons lamented:

“We consider it a hate crime because of the political message which we believe was intended to interfere with worship and intimidate voters…It happened in the ’50s, it happened in the ’60s. It shouldn’t happen in 2016.”

The incident follows a veritable collapsing of “Trump-Inspired Hate Crimes” nation-wide as multiple incidents are being routinely dismissed as hoaxes.
