Funny how the left keeps having to manufacture phony hate crimes.


Ex-NFL player accused of staging hate crime, painting 'MAGA' and swastikas on walls of bakery
Police in Georgia arrested Edawn Louis Coughman for allegedly staging the crime to make an insurance claim and sell off the undamaged appliances.

A former NFL player allegedly created a fake hate crime at his Georgia business in which he claimed burglars spray painted racial slurs, swastikas and "MAGA" at his bakery.

Edawn Louis Coughman, 31, was arrested Thursday on charges of filing a false report of a crime, insurance fraud, and concealing a license plate after he told police a burglar was responsible for spray painting racist language and imagery on the walls of his bakery, according to Gwinett County Police.

"It appears as though Edawn conjured a premeditated plan to damage his own property, attempt to make it appear as a hate crime, file a claim with his insurance company, and sell off the undamaged appliances and electronics," police said.

Photos taken by police at the scene show spray painted words and images, including the n-word, a swastika and "MAGA" ⁠— an abbreviated version of President Donald Trump's campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again."

Desperate to prove Trump supporters are racist... Just like Smollett.

When will these dummies learn that cops do this stuff for a living and can find out the celebs did it themselves?

Completely disgusting behavior!

They are going to get crazier as election time draws closer.

I am expecting all kinds of stories like this to emerge.

"A search warrant on Coughman's Silverado found a a yellow crow bar and cans of black spray paint in the truck".

Wow, how dumb, he left the evidence in his truck.

No way, the MAGAs planted it there under orders from Trump.

But if it had been a real hate crime would you have posted a topic about it?

Also, because a person who identifies with being left wing makes up a crime, that means the left collectively is responsible for every made up hate crime? Is the right collectively responsible for neo-nazis...?

Despite what the OP wants everyone to believe, there are actual real hate crimes. In fact, most are, except they tend to happen to non-celebrities who don't make the news.

Interesting how the media never misses and opportunity to report when Antifa knocks a MAGA hat off someone's head, but apparently misses all these other crimes committed by right, in the name of MAGA.

Racism exists, on both sides. But you're not seeing legitimate "Helter Skelter" type crimes, with MAGA written all over the walls in spray paint because they aren't happening. DERP

I wouldn't blame "The Left" for this one -- otherwise you're blaming half of the people in this country for the actions of only one man, who is obviously just an opportunistic business-person expressing his grudge against white people while trying to scam a few extra bucks out of his insurance company in the process.

No grand conspiracy here; just plain, ordinary racism and greed.
