As firefighters neared the 110-year-old church Tuesday night in Greenville, Miss., they saw flames in the windows and smoke pouring from the roof.

When they got closer, they could see two words spray-painted on the side of the burning sanctuary: “Vote Trump.”

Investigators suspect that the fire at the historically black Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church was set on purpose, Greenville Fire Chief Ruben Brown told The Washington Post. The incident is being investigated as a hate crime by local, state and federal law enforcement agencies.

Years as a Traditionalist Catholic who spent too much time listening to Fox News.
I also believed Obama was a Muslim who was planning on putting real Christians in concentration camps.

Pretty much why the media needs to be ignored until the end of the election.

Probably gonna be hilarious to see heads explode on CNN on November 9th if Trump wins though.

things to keep in mind:

1. Washington Post is pro-Hillary, and made several articles denouncing Trump. they went so far as to claim that Trump would cause a 3rd World War (which, even Hillary supporters should find it far-fetched)

2. let's not give-in to confirmation bias. let the local authorities investigate the matters. it could indeed be a Trump supporter that did this.
the timing for this incident is quite odd though - right when Hillary's email is being investigated a second time, and right when there's report of Trump popularity increasing in some states ( http://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/politics-government/campaign-tracker-blog/article111898737.html ). a Trump supporter doing something that would most definitely hurt the Trump campaign. it could very well be a lone supporter that did this out of hate. on the other hand, it's also possible that the incident was planned by the DNC in order to
try and hurt the Trump campaign. of course, this may or may not be the case. as i said, we don't know what happened.

Why would someone spray paint "vote trump" on a church and think it would help Trump? If anything it was someone who hates Trump and religion/blacks trying to draw bad attention to Trump because "Who gives a fuck what the morals or ethics people say we gotta win this thing" mentality.
