I saw various video bits and pieces about this yesterday and pretty much just ignored it: not my circus, not my monkeys.
So, according to ESPN (to get all the fireworks): NASCAR says noose found in Bubba Wallace’s garage at Talladega
A noose was found in the garage stall of Bubba Wallace at Talladega Superspeedway in Lincoln, Alabama, on Sunday, less than two weeks after Wallace, who is NASCAR’s only Black driver, successfully pushed the stock car racing series to ban the Confederate flag at its tracks and facilities.
I don’t follow NASCAR and I have no idea who Bubba Wallace is, but as it turns out:
FBI ANNOUNCES “NOOSE” FOUND IN BUBBA WALLACE’S GARAGE HAD BEEN THERE SINCE 2019; NO FEDERAL CRIME COMMITTED. “The FBI report concludes, and photographic evidence confirms, that the garage door pull rope fashioned like a noose had been positioned there since as early as last fall. This was obviously well before the 43 team’s arrival and garage assignment.”
So, hahaha! A misunderstanding. All completely harmless, right? Maybe not.
* ban the Confederate flag
* Noose was “found”
* NASCAR has a new “hero”
This propaganda set-piece would make Soviets blush.
And then this: Fake Noose – The NASCAR Bubba Wallace “Rope Noose” Was a Purposeful Hoax…
The blog post is very thorough and raises some interesting questions:
I share that dialogue exchange because it’s important to understand the scale of the multi-billion vested interests that surround this now international scandal based on accusations of fake hate; a racially driven hoax. There are lots of credibility and money at stake.
So with all of that context the big questions now surround motive. What would be the motives for the NASCAR team of Bubba Wallace to create a racially divisive hoax? What are the benefits and what would they accomplish?
Additionally, what would the motives be for NASCAR to promote a racial hoax with the intensity we have witnessed over the past two days? What would be the motive of NASCAR President Steve Phelps?
NASCAR. Who’d'a thunk it?
Oh, and this too: JUSSIE SMOLLETT ALL OVER AGAIN?
