When a historically black church is set on fire and spray painted with Vote Trump…I dare you to say we are a post-racial society.

What other explanation besides racism could there possibly be?
So when is that "Black Church burned/Vote Trump Spray-Painted on it" story going to be exposed as a hoax? https://t.co/xLw7G7FN2s

It really is. But the Left isn’t having trouble learning from their mistakes; it seems they’re actually determined to get it wrong every time.
Maybe it’s time for someone to save them from themselves:
Can't we just burn down Twitter and spray paint FAKE NEWS on the side of it?
