If you hadn’t heard, on October 30th, a man suspected of burning down a number of black churches in St. Louis was arrested. David Lopez Jackson now faces two counts of arson in connection with the church fires. So far, there appears to be no clear motive – but being so close to an election, and considering Clinton’s past, we can’t rule out the possibility that this is some kind of stunt coordinated by Clinton Super PAC.
This is not a new tactic.
During Bill Clinton’s 1996 Presidential campaign, 145 African American churches were burned to the ground. It generated a media storm, with talk about racists whites and Republicans attacking African Americans dominating the media at times during the campaign.
The Center for Democratic Renewal, along with the National Council of Churches, held a well-publicised press conference where they claimed that the sudden surge in arsons was a result of a ‘well-organized white-supremacist movement’. The press naturally bought it, and portrayed the CDR as an independent organisation that monitored hate crimes – just like they do now with the Southern Poverty Law Center.
In reality, the CDR was known for its total dishonesty – and its 1994 claims that the arson of black churches were performed by white supremacists were proven false when it was found that only three of the fires were racially motivated.
It didn’t matter. The lies had already been told, Clinton won the presidency, and burning down African American churches practically disappeared after he left office in 2001.
Since Clinton left office, there appear to have been as little as 9 black churches burned down.
The Clintons not only benefit from these church burnings, it has been proven by Project Veritas Action videos that they have previously employed violent tactics like this to dictate the narrative of the election campaign. Either these attacks are coordinated by the Clintons, or they’re the luckiest political dynasty around.
