A bunch of prominent libs on the internet are pushing a deranged conspiracy theory about Rep. Nancy Mace (R., S.C.), who filed a police report this week after her home was vandalized on Memorial Day.
The vandalism consisted of hateful messages spray-painted on Mace's front steps and sidewalk. "All politicians are bastards," one read. "F— you Nancy," read another.
Internet libs pounced and subsequently seized on the attack, suggesting without evidence that Mace had pulled a Jussie Smollett and vandalized her own home for attention. Many were aggrieved that Mace had implicated Antifa, the anarchist cosplay group, by pointing out the vandal's use of Antifa symbols.
Snopes.com, a liberal website and self-appointed purveyor of internet truth, published a "RUMOR ALERT" to let its readers know about the baseless claim many people are talking about. "Because we can't independently confirm or deny the Mace rumor, we are not yet issuing a rating for this rumor," the sleuths at Snopes explained.
Mace, of course, has denied vandalizing her own home. Nevertheless, the libs persisted in promoting the unfounded allegations via Twitter, the popular social networking website.
Pat Cunnane, a former Obama speechwriter you probably haven't heard of but who looks just like the other Obama bros, found it suspicious that Mace did not file a police report (she did), and claimed without evidence that "it appears" as though Mace "forged the vandalism." He eventually deleted the false tweet.
Former Jimmy Kimmel writer Rick Rosner, aka @dumbassgenius, said he "can't stop tweeting about this craven grifter," in reference to Mace, and wondered why the congresswoman hadn't been "charged with falsely reporting a crime."
Another longtime Kimmel writer, Bess Kalb, fueled the conspiracy theory by suggesting the vandal's messages were written in Mace's handwriting. Kalb compared the spray-painted messages to the text of a handwritten campaign letter signed "Nancy Mace," which probably wasn't even written by the congresswoman herself. Some people might be shocked to learn that politicians often assign such duties to their staff. Nevertheless, the comedy writer urged the FBI to investigate.
Prominent libs who amplified the amateur handwriting analysis include Parker Molloy, editor-at-large of Media Matters, and Matthew Chapman, a reporter for Raw Story. They were hardly alone. Kurt Eichenwald, a liberal journalist best known for looking at "tentacle porn" with his family, was impressed by the internet sleuthing. "Wow," he wrote. "[I]t seriously looks like @nancymace is faking attacks on herself."
Crooked Media podcast host Akilah Hughes chimed in as well. "Nancy why did you spray paint your own house to feel like a victim?" she wrote. "You need a therapist." Several other verified Twitter users echoed her fake concern for the congresswoman.
As is often the case with these situations, the truth will eventually come out. The conspiracy theory will be debunked, or Mace will be exposed for committing an act of unfathomable stupidity. Someone, or perhaps many people, will have outed themselves as a deranged lunatic. Readers make their own determinations as to which outcome is more likely.
