BEAN BLOSSOM, Ind. (WTHR) - A Brown County church vandalized with Donald Trump graffiti shortly after the 2016 election wasn't targeted by pro-Trump political activists, but a member of their own congregation, according to police.
People suspected the KKK or some other hate group was responsible for the graffiti. The arrest of the church organist, was a surprise - and a relief.
A church organist was arrested Wednesday after he vandalized his own church with swastikas and pro-Trump graffiti in order to “mobilize a movement.”
The Washington Post reported on it and connected it to Trump’s victory, “The offensive graffiti at St. David’s is among numerous incidents that have occurred in the wake of Trump’s Election Day win.”
They also mentioned the vandalism in a piece entitled, “The postelection hate spike: How long will it last?” It was mentioned in 15 articles by The Post, yet, as of publication time, they have yet to write about Stang’s arrest.
The vandalism was also covered by CNN in the story “‘Make America White Again’: Hate speech and crimes post-election.” Just like the Post, CNN has yet to write an updated story.
