Fake Hate Crime: FBI concludes noose in garage of NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace is a door pull

This is what happens when America is whipped into a frenzy by #BLM protests and riots.

Darrell “Bubba” Wallace, 26, is a professional stock car racing driver who competes full-time in the NASCAR Cup Series. He is also the first “African-American” to win in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (Martinsville, 2014).

Bubba Wallace

After the death of George Floyd in May 2020 at the hands of police officers in Minneapolis, Wallace began to speak up about police brutality against Blacks, and became the face of stock car racing’s involvement in the Black Lives Matter movement. On June 8, he called on NASCAR to mandate the banning of displays of the Confederate flag; two days later, NASCAR announced the Confederate flag would be banned.

On Sunday, June 21, 2020, NASCAR announced that a “noose” had been found in Wallace’s garage stall at Talladega Superspeedway.

NASCAR immediately condemned the act, calling it “heinous” and said they would be consulting with law enforcement. All 39 of Wallace’s rival drivers and their crews helped push his car to the front of pit road before the national anthem and stood behind him in solidarity. Wallace said that he was “incredibly saddened” by the “painful reminder of how much further we have to go as a society and how persistent we must be in the fight against racism”.

Although NASCAR said in a statement that the garage door pull rope was fashioned like a noose, Wallace Wallace fumed in an interview with CNN Tuesday night that “The image that I have, that I have seen hanging from my garage is not a garage pull. From the evidence that we have, that I have, it’s a straight-up noose. The FBI has stated it was a noose over and over again. NASCAR leadership has stated that it was a noose. I can confirm that I actually got evidence of what was hanging in my garage over my car, around my pit crew guys, to confirm that it was a noose, and I’ve never seen anything like it.”

People were skeptical because no photo of said noose or of security camera footage of the garage were released, although security cameras cover every inch of the garage stalls at Talladega Superspeedway containing millions of dollars worth of cars and parts.

In response to perfectly reasonable questions about the noose claim, NASCAR and Wallace reportedly called such queries “offensive and hurtful”. Wallace also bristled that he’s “pissed” his integrity was being questioned.

Bob Pockrass took and tweeted this pic of the “noose” in Wallace’s NASCAR garage:

Yesterday, WUSA9 reports that after an investigation, the FBI concluded that the noose found in the garage of NASCAR’s only Black driver, Bubba Wallace, had been in the garage as early as October 2019.

In a joint statement, U.S. Attorney Jay Town and FBI Special Agent in Charge Johnnie Sharp said the FBI learned that garage number 4 had been assigned to Wallace only last week, and that the FBI was also able to use authentic video confirmed by NASCAR to verify the rope’s prior existence. And so the FBI decided not to pursue federal charges after reviewing all of the facts in the case. 

Below is the joint statement:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Tuesday, June 23, 2020

Joint Statement from U.S. Attorney Jay E. Town and FBI Special Agent in Charge Johnnie Sharp, Jr. Regarding the Noose Found in NASCAR’s Bubba Wallace’s Garage at Talladega Superspeedway

“On Monday, fifteen FBI special agents conducted numerous interviews regarding the situation at Talladega Superspeedway.  After a thorough review of the facts and evidence surrounding this event, we have concluded that no federal crime was committed.

The FBI learned that garage number 4, where the noose was found, was assigned to Bubba Wallace last week.  The investigation also revealed evidence, including authentic video confirmed by NASCAR, that the noose found in garage number 4 was in that garage as early as October 2019.  Although the noose is now known to have been in garage number 4 in 2019, nobody could have known Mr. Wallace would be assigned to garage number 4 last week.

The decision not to pursue federal charges is proper after reviewing all available facts and all applicable federal laws. We offer our thanks to NASCAR, Mr. Wallace, and everyone who cooperated with this investigation.”

Not one of these “noose” crimes in the past several years turned out to be true. Not. A. One. I knew this one was not real, too.

This is just sad. Bubba has been brainwashed and was triggered. My first thought upon hearing the original claim was, “How did ANYONE not on his team get access to his garage or trailer?” I thought maybe he had an insider (or perhaps a friend or relative of one) who’d done it as a ‘joke’ or who knows what. It couldn’t have been someone from the media, as they wouldn’t have had access for enough time. But if they did, the *security cameras* would have caught it; yet there were NO videos or photos released to show such, let alone… Read more »

New from Popeil! The fabulous “Not-a-Noose” rope pull handle. It can pull, it can tug, but it cannot fit over a human head. In bright neon safety orange, to remind you to close your garage door, and to not place over your head.

If the loop portion can be enlarged, and it look like it can, it could be placed over a human head.

I remember a time,not that long ago,when seeing that in anyone’s shop would bring a response of “So what?” Nothing more,nothing less. That’s STILL how I see it,and that ALSO goes for the Rebel Flag. I like the looks of that flag,and what it represented a couple hundred years ago has been settled for ages now-why are people STILL so butt-hurt over it? And while I’m at it,this business of destroying every statue and monument in my Country HAS TO BE STOPPED. I challenge Barr to begin investigating EVERY damned one of these stupid events,arrest those involved AND those who… Read more »

I accidentally tuned into to Pee B.S. on the radio today and two women were talking about Chris Columbus being a ‘murderer”. They’re using today’s ‘standards” for people 500 years ago. Next they will be calling cave men ‘misogynist and sexist”.

I thought his “justification” for his claim and the subsequence disproval by the FBI was graceful and reasonable. OTOH, THANK FREAKIN’ GOD the FBI was dispatched immediately in HEAVEY force for such a singular claim…Otherwise, we’d have had another “Smollet drama” to attend to for years & years in a new (NASCAR) venue….rolling it outside even the hysterical and vapid boundaries of Hollywood, CA.

If the images I have seen are accurate the rope is indeed made like a noose. If someone were tying the end of a rope to make it easier to handle, pull, why go to the effort needed to make it into a noose? It appears that it has nothing to do with Wallace but is odd none the less. Anyway, more whites were probably lynched with nooses than black, the same as persons being killed and beaten by police.
