NASCAR is reeling as thousands of fans flee the sport after it kowtowed to Bubba and the Fake News Media over what most knew was clearly a hoax.
And though Wallace tried to drive the story home even after the FBI ruled it aphony, things got just a bit too uncomfortable for NASCAR execs.
Finally Bubba Wallace was forced to offer a weak apology after the noose hoax went one lap too far.
As a sport, most popular among blue collar, southern “rednecks” and car guys, NASCAR has survived the gas shortages of the 1970s, multiple attempts at “diversification,” new car designs, changed formats, and changed sponsorships.
Yet, in the last week the sport’s executives have seemingly done everything in their power to destroy this icon of American culture.
After alienating loyal fans by banning the rebel flag, NASCAR announced someone “found a noose” hanging in Bubba Wallace’s garage at Talladega.
This finding of “unfortunate symbol of racism” was followed closely by a tear-jerking show of solidarity with the black driver, as owners, pit crews and drivers lined up behind Wallace as he made his way to the starting line of the Talladega race.
But then, as was predicted by most astute observers, the FBI on Tuesday released the findings of its investigation into the “noose” allegedly found in the biracial drivers’ garage.
No hate crime was committed.
The supposed hate symbol was actually a loop handle tied into a piece of rope used to open and close the garage door. This very same rope handle had been there since at least October 2019.
Wallace went on CNN to announce he had evidence it was a “straight up noose,” but eventually was forced to admit by NASCAR it wasn’t.
In our current era of “cancel culture” and fake news, this outcome was completely predictable.
The media and BLM narrative of hordes of white hooded KKK members and neo-Nazis roaming the nation looking for minorities to lynch is just the stuff of Hollywood movies and Fake News Media reports.
The United States isn’t perfect, and yes, racism does exist (it always has and always will) but actual died-in-the-wool racists committing violent acts are few and far between.
Bubba Wallace, just like Jussie Smollett, lives a life of privilege few Americans of any color are able to afford.
Wallace’s father owns his own industrial cleaning company and his mother is a college-educated professional.
Wallace’s net worth is said to be around $3.5 million, a figure sure to go up as the noose hoax has raised his profile even higher in elite media and sponsorship circles.
Just look at the parade of every NASCAR driver and pit crew member at the Talladega Speedway walking behind Wallace’s car as it entered the track.
What many saw as a touching demonstration of support for a driver who fell victim to racism, may turn out to be a funeral procession for a once proud icon of Americana.
And saddest of all, NASCAR executives in a macabre dance of delight, fell right in line to help speed up their own death.
