More fake hate?

WSVNThe discovery of the noose Sunday afternoon in Wallace’s garage stall comes as the United States, and NASCAR in particular, more squarely address America’s systemic racism in the wake of the police killing of George Floyd.

Wallace, the only Black driver in NASCAR’s top circuit, has been an outspoken advocate of the Black Lives Matter movement and the corresponding protests against racism and police brutality. He wore an “I Can’t Breathe” shirt before one event, repainted his car with the “Black Lives Matter” phrase and pushed NASCAR to ban the Confederate flag.

I would bet a huge amount of money that this is another incident of "fake hate", and another large amount of money that the "noose" was placed in Wallace's garage by Wallace himself or someone with authorized access to the garage who is an ideological fellow traveler of Wallace and BLM.

As for the idiot who had a plane fly the confederate flag over the track after the flag was banned, well, the jury is still out on that one. It would be an expensive stunt. (How much does it cost to hire a plane to fly a banner?) And while a flag may offend the easily offended, it's a long ways from the death threat that a noose consists of.

UPDATE: And it looks like I would have won my bet. The "noose" is hanging from all the garage doors. It's how you close them.

UPDATE: Followup.
