REVEALED: Alex Jones and Tucker Carlson spread racist fake news about black Harvey ‘looters’

“[They’re] saying, ‘Look at what we looted, look at what we got,’” Jones claimed on August 29. “They’re putting it on Twitter, ‘We’re robbing the white folks, they deserve it.’”

Soon after, Snopes documented outlets — both right-wing and more mainstream — retweeting and discussing posts under the Twitter hashtag “#HarveyLootCrew.” Their investigation revealed that two Twitter accounts posing as black men in Houston who claimed to be looting neighborhoods populated by presumably white “racist Trump supporters” were, in fact, fake.

“It isn’t difficult to discern the motivation behind these fake tweets,” the Snopes report states, “which were obviously created to sow fear and racial hatred in a time of crisis.”

An actually funny political satire on Saturday Night Live — who’d have thunk? Of course it was subsequently banned from rebroadcast because it calls out the “bipartisan spirit” of looting the treasury. Dems, Repubs, George Soros get theirs.
