(Right Country) – Hate crimes are posh. Of course, they’re awful but there’s nothing better for the leftist media than a hate crime. They immediately jump all over it without any consideration for anything except the narrative that white people are oppressive racists and the hate crime is just further proof of it.
This was exactly the case when now infamous actor Jussie Smollett pulled his hate crime charade in Chicago. If you don’t remember (how could you not?) Smollett claimed that he was attacked by two white men wearing MAGA hats who just so happened to be carrying nooses around with them. The white duo yelled that Chicago was “MAGA country” before threatening to string him up with the noose. This incident, according to Smollett, happened in the early morning hours (around 2 or 3 am) as he was out casually walking to Subway…in the middle of February…in Chicago.
Despite the fact that the details of Smollett’s story were shady, the leftist media utterly ran with the story. News pundits, self-righteous celebrities, leftist politicians were all enthusiastic about reporting this supposed hate crime and pushing their “white people are racists” narrative.
So, you can only imagine how excited the media got upon hearing that NASCAR’s only black driver, Bubba Wallace, had found a supposed noose in his garage that led to a formal FBI hate crime investigation to be launched. The media took the story and ran with it, never looking back.
The only problem is the “noose” in question was only a garage door pull and there was no actual hate crime. Ouch. That’s embarrassing. Hate crime hoaxes seem to be a lot more frequent than actual hate crimes nowadays. (That’s a good thing).
With the truth of the supposed noose coming to light, Wallace was understandably quite embarrassed and took to Twitter to issue a public statement expressing as much.

“It’s been an emotional few days. First off, I want to say how relieved I am that the investigation revealed that this wasn’t what we feared it was. I want to thank my team, NASCAR, and the FBI for acting swiftly and treating this as a real threat,” he wrote. “I think we’ll gladly take a little embarrassment over what the alternatives could have been. Make no mistake, though some will try, this should not detract from the show of unity we had on Monday, and the progress we’ve made as a sport to be a more welcoming environment for all.”
Disrn has more:
The FBI investigation found that the alleged noose was actually a garage pull rope that had been hanging in that particular garage since last year.
Wallace’s statement came a day after the driver appeared on CNN with host Don Lemon and defiantly rejected the FBI’s conclusions.
“I’ve been racing all of my life,” Wallace said at the time. “We’ve raced out of hundreds of garages that never had garage pulls like that. So people that want to call it a garage pull and put out all the videos and photos of knots being as their evidence, go ahead, but from the evidence that we have — and I have — it’s a straight-up noose.”
"I've been racing all of my life, we've raced out of hundreds of garages that never had garage pulls like that. … It's a straight up noose."

Luckily, the object wasn’t a “straight-up noose” and we can chalk this whole incident up to just another hate crime hoax fueled by the divisive leftist media.
