I was just reading about that.
The MSM is gonna lap this up like Alpo.
So... was the kid a flaming liberal?
He looks like an atheist neckbeard, but I honestly don’t think there’s enough information about why this happened.
If hes white thats all that matters.
Doesn’t look like a conservative to me.
NO. If he is guilty is what matters. There is never an excuse to persecute a church.
Militant atheist socialist terrorist?
I am betting he is a liberal nutcase that set these fires to ‘prove’ there is racism...................Jussie Smollett on steroids...............
You sure he is not a muzzie?
You sure he is not a muzzie convert?
Looks like a neo-pagan neo-Nazi from this link (https://www.inquisitr.com/5386494/holden-matthews-suspect-in-louisiana-church-fires/ )
Has anyone heard him called a lone wolf or for us not to be quick to judge?
Sounds like one of the few real (neo)Nazis that actually exist.
That’s usually a sure sign it’s NOT a conservative republican... because it would be in the headline if he was.
Suspect charged in La. black church burnings
ST. LANDRY PARISH, La. (BP) — A 21-year-old white man is charged with arson
in fires that destroyed three black Baptist churches in St. Landry Parish.
Investigators reportedly haven’t determined whether the fires were racially motivated.
Holden Matthews, the son of a St. Landry Parish sheriff’s deputy, was arrested
late yesterday afternoon (April 10) and charged with three counts of arson.
No motive has been determined, but investigators are considering Matthews’
membership in a band that plays “black metal” music, a genre that has promoted
church burnings in other countries.
“This was an attack on the house of God,” Louisiana State Fire Marshal H.
“Butch” Browning said in a 10 a.m. press conference today (April 11).
“Though the Spirit is still strong, the landmark has been destroyed. We
took that very seriously in this investigation.”
