This week the NASCAR organization made a complete fool out of itself, collectively, over a noose hoax.
The auto racing organization claimed a noose was found in a garage used by the only black race car driver in NASCAR.
With warp speed, liberals were on the airwaves demanding “justice” over this horrible racist act.
It was all a hoax. There was no noose. NASCAR apparently didn’t even wait to find out what actually happened before going public with unfounded accusations.
This is nothing new. In recent years, there have been about 10 such incidents, and each has proven to be false, according to author and lecturer Ben Shapiro.
The usual script is, a black person finds a noose and the media is contacted. The media then goes into hysterics over a “hate crime” that they insist is only further evidence that America’s a racist nation. (This libel, in case you have been living in a cave, is the radical left’s latest and greatest attack on this nation.)
Jacksonville had one about 20 years ago.
A “noose” was reported to have been placed in Fire Station 4, Duval and Jefferson streets. Fire HQ was notified, and they in turn called the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.
When the police arrived at the scene of this incident minutes later, they found the local president of the NAACP and several members of the press already on the scene.
A criminal investigation was launched, and the alleged victim was placed on administrative leave for about 45 days, for what was called the emotional shock from the incident.
Following a lengthy and detailed investigation, the case was closed. The reason was that the “victim” refused to cooperate with the police or the FBI, and would not take a polygraph test. Soon afterward, another “noose” was discovered at a distant station. This case also was dropped because witnesses would not cooperate.
I may have played a small part in this matter. A valuable and trusted source provided me with information about the case and I had contacted the local FBI office before the case was dropped. I always had good relations with local FBI agents, and I have spoken at a luncheon held by retired agents. (All this before the top brass of the agency was politicized by the corrupt Obama administration.)
Given the actions of the media, especially since 2016, the best advice for anyone when such reports become public: If you didn’t see it happen, don’t believe it until there is proof beyond a reasonable doubt.
