If it weren’t for phony “hate crimes” there wouldn’t be any “hate crimes” at all. Seriously, has there been even one so-called “hate crime” since the 2016 election that hasn’t been proven to be bogus?
A Brown County church vandalized with Donald Trump graffiti shortly after the 2016 election wasn’t targeted by pro-Trump political activists, but a member of their own congregation, according to police.
People suspected the KKK or some other hate group was responsible for the graffiti. The arrest of the church organist, was a surprise – and a relief.
The Brown County prosecuting attorney’s office issued a statement Wednesday saying they had charged 26-year-old George Nathaniel Stang of Bloomington with institutional criminal mischief, a misdemeanor. Stang was the man who originally claimed to have found the graffiti, and works as the organist at St. David’s Episcopal Church in Bean Blossom.
“Oh my, the organist,” Mary Ayers said. “The organist. Wow. Wow.”
It was November, shortly after the presidential election. Stang told everyone he discovered the graffiti when he arrived for Sunday morning services.
The small Episcopal church is inclusive and welcomes gay couples.
Detectives immediately suspected the crime was committed by someone familiar with the church. They said cell phone records put Stang in the area Saturday night.
According to court records, when confronted with the evidence, the 26-year-old gay man confessed.
Investigators say Stang admitted to painting the “Heil Trump” and “Fag Church” graffiti himself because he wanted to “mobilize a movement after being disappointed in and fearful of the outcome of the national election.” He insisted his actions were not motivated by anti-Christian or anti-gay sentiments.
Ron Smith, a Brown county resident, shook his head.
“Is there any rhyme or reason or sanity in any of this action?” Eyewitness News asked.
“I don’t think,” Smith said.
Brown County Prosecutor Ted Adams talked about Stang’s alleged motive.
“He explained that one of the reasons he had done it was because of fear. He was concerned about the results of the election,” Adams said.
In a three-page, handwritten statement, Stang, according to court records, wanted to “mobilize a movement.”
Well, the anti-Trump “movement,” fueled by lies and bogus hate crimes, is still going strong. Great job, folks. Now give this clown a lengthy prison sentence so a clear message is sent. Instead, we still hear stories about a “wave of hate crimes” when there’s zero evidence any of them are true.
