NBC News reported that a church organist was arrested Wednesday after he vandalized his own church with a swastika and pro-Trump graffiti in order to cast Republicans as racist sociopaths.
George Nathaniel Stang, 26, admitted to spray painting a swastika, phrases like “fag church” and “heil Trump” on St. David’s Episcopal Church in the town of Bean Blossom, Indiana.
“I suppose I wanted to give local people a reason to fight for good, even if it was a false flag,” Stang (in photo) non-apologized in the statement. “To be clear my actions were not motivated by hate for the church or its congregation.”
But at least some sliver of decency and logic seems to have penetrated George’s fat bugle, even if inspired by getting arrested. “I of course realize now, this was NOT the way to go about inspiring activism.”
The irony of the story? Hate-crime hoaxes are working to hurt President Trump, at least in some small way. Liberal news sources such as Washington Post and the New York Times use the stories to foster editorials about so-called Republican hate crimes, then conveniently forget that the incidents ever happened when they are proven to be stunts.
