No, it's probably legit, although most of the national news outlets are not covering it on their websites (I checked CNN, Fox, MSNBC, ABC, then I gave up looking). However, local media outlets in Greenville do seem to be reporting on it (although it looks like HuffPo's posting is "first" in terms of when the article first appeared on the web).

Regardless, if it is real, it's bullshit and that sucks. Seriously, how many times do we have to remind people not to burn down churches and other buildings, huh? Luckily no one was hurt.

But there is one thing I find odd. Why the hell would anyone do something like this in MISSISSIPPI? I mean, seriously? Mississippi is so Trumpy, it is probably going to be his best performance in all of the states he carries. Why do this there? That would be the same as a bunch of vegans burning a hamburger restaurant and scrawling "Vote Hillary" in California!

Either this story is truly a "false flag", or Hillary supporters did it and are trying to blame Trump, or Mississippi Trumpies are just really, really, really stupid.

Like sex in a Game of Thrones episode, your vulgarity is exasperating and excessively gratuitous. You can end the conversation now, because I am.
