After Democrats spread conspiracy about vandalism at Rep. Mace’s house, police weigh in with the facts


CHARLESTON, SC – On June 1st, Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) reported on her Twitter account that her home had been vandalized and hit with Antifa graffiti. She shared pictures of the graffiti, which included the Antifa symbol (A inside of a circle).”

A respectful response by anyone, regardless of their political party, should be to condemn such an attack, even lend some support to Mace and her family. Instead, many liberals spiraled into conspiracy theories, accusing Mace of vandalizing her own home.

The attack included some high-profile liberals that really took their theories too far without any real reason or rationale. Pat Cunnane, a former Obama speechwriter, claimed it appeared that Mace forged the vandalism and implied that she had not filed a police report, which has been proven to be a false accusation. 

Cunnane cited Raw Story reporter Matthew Chapman, who alleged that the handwriting looked like Mace’s. Cunnane eventually deleted the false tweet. The conspiracy theory was also fed by Parker Malloy of Media Matters and Bess Kalb, a writer for Jimmy Kimmel.

Kalb claimed that the graffiti’s penmanship looked like the handwriting in a campaign letter sent out by the Mace campaign. However, it is not actually clear that Mace wrote that letter.

Another Kimmel writer, Rick Rosner, even suggested that maybe Mace should be charged for making a false report and urged the FBI to investigate. Malloy has also since deleted his tweet. Kurt Eichenwald, a liberal journalist, was also invested in the conspiracy theory.

He tweeted:

“Wow, it seriously looks like @nancymace is faking attacks on herself.”

Crooked Media podcast host Akilah Hughes chimed in as well, tweeting:

“Nancy why did you spray paint your own house to feel like a victim? You need a therapist.”

Since Mace did in fact file a police report, these conspiracy theorists might want to check on a recent update provided by the police.

According to reports, Charleston police believe that the act of vandalism at Mace’s home may in fact be connected to a similar graffiti incident that happened at nearby Bishop England High School earlier in the year. 

Investigators found similarities between the graffiti at Mace’s home and what was found at the high school. Police said that they believe the same person is responsible for both incidents. Following the police announcement, Mace tweeted a statement thanking local, state, and federal law enforcement for their efforts on the case.

The tweet read:

“I want to thank all of you who have reached out with messages of support. My kids and I appreciate the overwhelming acts of kindness during a difficult time. Regardless of our political beliefs, we should all be able to fee safe in our own homes.”

Among the messages left at Mace’s home on May 31st were profanity, “Pass the Pro Act,” “no Gods,” “no masters,” and the capital letter “A” with a circle, which is a symbol most commonly associated with anarchism. 

Police stated that they also discovered similar graffiti at three Daniel Island parks that same day. As the investigation continued, authorities started to connect the Memorial Day incident at Mace’s home to the earlier act of vandalism at the high school.

On February 23rd, an anarchist symbol was spray-painted at the high school as well as messages such as “Marx is cool so is Kropotkin,” “Read leftist theory,” “This is a bad school,” and “ACAB,” which is an acronym for a derogatory phrase aimed at police. 

Police said that the suspect also painted a “hammer and sickle” insignia, which is meant to represent proletarian solidarity. Police posted a picture of the suspect, revealing a person wearing a black sweatshirt and dark pants. 

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Charleston County Consolidated 911 Center at 843-743-7200, Crime Stoppers of the Lowcountry at 843-554-1111 or Charleston Police Sgt. Stephen Voges at [email protected]

NYPD investigating church vandalism as hate crime after Jesus statue destroyed, American flag burned

May 15th, 2021

NEW YORK CITY, NY – In what cops are calling a potential hate crime, a statue of Jesus was destroyed, and an American flag was burned outside a Catholic church in Brooklyn earlier in May.

An unidentified person jumped the fence at St. Athanasius Church on Bay Parkway at 61st Street in Bensonhurst at approximately 10:00 p.m. on May 13th, according to police.

According to authorities, the assailant knocked over a statue of Jesus’ crucifixion, smashing it into pieces, and set fire to an American flag hanging just outside of the rectory.

According to the Diocese of Brooklyn, the church’s pastor, Monsignor David Cassato, discovered the vandalism at about 8:00 a.m. on May 14th and reported it to the NYPD.

Monsignor Cassato stated in the release that “This was truly an act of hatred, and today is the saddest day of my twenty years here at this parish.”

The release from the Monsignor noted that he spoke with the students in the school about the destroyed crucifix, which was reportedly installed back in 2010 to honor the memory of Monsignor Cassato’s late mother:

“I went over and spoke to the students in the school about what happened, telling them that hate never wins. We are, and must be, a community that continues to share the message of Easter, that which is of love, hope, and forgiveness.”

Locals and regular church attendees were reasonably disheartened after seeing the aftermath of the vandalism, with one local noting:

“How someone could show this hatred is just so hard to think about.”

Another church goer stated:

“When I saw the cross this morning, I was filled with tears, emotion and heartbreak.”

Authorities are currently investigating the incident as a hate crime, according to reports.

There are no details as of this writing on whether authorities have determined any suspects involved with the incident.

In other news pertaining to churches, a pastor and his brother were arrested in Canada after allegedly inciting people to attend church services in Calgary. 

Here’s that previous report. 


CALGARY, AB – A Canadian pastor who gained a degree of notoriety after being arrested during Easter weekend in April for allegedly violating COVID-19 limitations on gatherings was arrested once again under similar charges, along with his brother, on May 8th by Calgary Police.

Calgary’s Street Church’s Pastor Artur Pawlowski and his brother Dawid Pawlowski were arrested and charged with “organizing an illegal in-person gathering,” according to the Calgary Police Service.

Video that captured the arrest of the two individuals showcased numerous police vehicles lined up on the side of the road as officers were handcuffing the two brothers.

During the video, one onlooker can be heard telling officers enacting the arrests:

“Shame on you guys, this is not Communist China. Don’t you have family and kids? Whatever happened to ‘Canada, God keep our land glorious and free?’”

The arrest of these two brothers came after a May 6th court order obtained by Alberta Health Services that imposed new restrictions pertaining to the likes of general gatherings, which includes even protests and rallies, requiring the of using face coverings, employing physical distancing and attendance limits.

In a statement provided by the Calgary Police in relation to these arrests, it was noted that Pastor Artur Pawlowski was informed of the injunction prior to holding church services, which authorities allege that the arrestees flouted said guidelines:

“The service organizer acknowledged the injunction, but chose to ignore requirements for social distancing, mask wearing and reduced capacity limits for attendees, and continued with the event.

“As a result, Artur Pawlowski and Dawid Pawlowski have both been arrested and charged with organizing an illegal in-person gathering, including requesting, inciting or inviting others to attend an illegal public gathering, promoting and attending an illegal public gathering.”

Further along in the statement from Calgary Police, it was acknowledged that locals undoubtedly want to participate in the likes of religious gatherings, but failure to abide by the pre-emptive injunction against illegal public gatherings can result in arrest:

“It is important to understand that law enforcement recognizes people’s desire to participate in faith-based gatherings as well as the right to protest. However, as we find ourselves in the midst of a global pandemic, we all must comply with public health orders in order to ensure everyone’s safety and wellbeing.”

Breitbart News contributor John Nolte referred to the Calgary Police officers who arrested the Pawlowski brothers as being the modern-day “Gestapo”:

“The Canadian Gestapo were smart this time. Instead of breaking into and swarming Canadian Pastor Artur Pawlowski’s church — as they previously did during an Easter weekend service, only to be appropriately shamed and heckled out of the place — this time the Canadian Gestapo waited until after Saturday services to arrest Pawlowski, and did so on a public highway.

“Naturally, the Gestapo treated him like he was Scarface. Multiple officers and at least four police cruisers were involved.”

Nolte went on to further allege that Canada has become an “openly fascist” country, citing a February arrest of another pastor for holding religious services:

“Canada has become so openly fascist, Pawlowski is the second pastor arrested by the Canadian Gestapo. Back in February, the Canadian Gestapo arrested Rev. James Coates of GraceLife Church of Edmonton after he turned himself in. His crime was the same — holding church services in a fascist country.”
