On the day before the special election for the U.S. Senate in Mississippi, a group of nooses were found hanging at the state capitol. The media immediately claimed it was a “hate crime” perpetrated by “white supremacists.” But it turns out it was done by Democrats hoping to enrage Democrat voters and get them to vote for their candidate.
So, yeah, the media lied once again. And all in service to Democrats.
For instance, the Associated Press called it a “message” of “hate.”
There were several signs accompanying the nooses. But the media tried to avoid reporting what the signs said.
“Chuck McIntosh, a spokesman for the Mississippi Department of Finance and Administration, which oversees the Capitol, says the nooses and signs were found Monday morning shortly before 8 a.m. on the south side of the Capitol grounds,” the AP wrote on Monday. “He says the matter is under investigation, and he did not immediately know what was on the signs.”
As Daily Wire noted, several liberals immediately called it raaaacism.
Nooses were found just before a runoff election to determine whether a black man will hold a Senate seat in Mississippi. https://t.co/vFHFJm4AQw

But eventually we found out that those signs were put up by Democrats supporting Mike Espy and they put up the signs hoping to get Democrats mad enough to go vote for the Democrat in the special election.
“We’re hanging nooses to remind people that times haven’t changed,” one sign read.
“We need someone who respects the lives of lynch victims,”the other said.
