NASCAR “Noose” Story Was #FakeNoose

NASCAR “Noose” Story Was #FakeNoose

“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.”

NASCAR recently announced, to the glee of the left, that a “noose” had been found in racer Bubba Wallace’s garage, but people were skeptical since there was no release of a photo of said noose nor of the security cams that cover every inch of these bays that contain millions of dollars worth of cars and parts.

For example, there was speculation that the “noose” was a rope used on every bay door for the purpose of lowering it easily.

In response to perfectly reasonable questions about the noose claim, NASCAR and Wallace reportedly called such queries hurtful and offensive.

To no one’s surprise, the NASCAR “noose” in Bubba Wallace’s garage bay turned out to be #FakeNoose.

Ultimately, inevitably, the FBI concluded that there was no there there.

Here is the full statement:

“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.”

Plays on #FakeNews were inevitable, of course, as were comparisons to the fakery of Jussie Smollett.

You do have to wonder why people have to work so hard to #FakeHate in a country they claim is racist to its core.  And you really have to wonder what NASCAR is thinking with its pandering to the “woke” mob.

Nasty Piglousy wants to pass her anti-lynching bill and she needs someone to lynch someone in order to gin up support. If no one will do it then the Democrats will fake it.

    Isn’t hanging someone by the neck and killing them already illegal?

      Milhouse in reply to Paul. | June 23, 2020 at 11:09 pm

      Unless it’s a lawful state execution, yes, it’s already illegal, but it’s a state offense, not a federal one. Back when it was a common thing for black people to be falsely accused of a crime and then lynched, and for state juries to acquit the lynchers, it made sense to call for such lynchings to be a federal crime. And numerous attempts were made to do so, but they all failed. Nowadays such things don’t happen anyway, and if they ever did happen the perpetrators would be tried and convicted and punished (often by execution) under state law, so making it a federal crime would just be virtue signaling. But at least it would be a harmless gesture. That makes it a lot better than most of the “reforms” being demanded nowadays.

        Milwaukee in reply to Milhouse. | June 24, 2020 at 6:09 am

        The most notorious lynching group was that branch of the Democrat Party, the Klan, in the South.
        Let’s not forget that Blacks were not the only ones lynched. Jews, Catholics, and Republicans were also lynched. (I qualify as two of the aforementioned three.)
        Reconstruction ended when Rutherford Hayes agreed to remove Federal troops in exchange for electoral votes. He became President, the South became a Democrat strong hold. The Klan and Jim Crowe grew in strength together.

          Arminius in reply to Milwaukee. | June 24, 2020 at 7:40 am

          Excellent point; the majority of those lynched were black, but by far they weren’t the only ones. The largest mass lynching in the Jim Crow south was in 1891 New Orleans and involved 11 Italians dragged out of their jail cells and strung up in the public square. The KKK didn’t like us greasy olive-picking papists.

          Ironically these brain dead leftist vandals are tearing down or defacing Christopher Columbus statues put up after that mass lynching to honor the victims.

          Milwaukee in reply to Milwaukee. | June 24, 2020 at 9:35 am

          In 1891 Italians and other Mediterranean people, such as Greeks, Portuguese, and others were not considered “White”. The definition of race has “evolved” over time. Another example…a person of Spanish descent from Spain is European but a person of Spanish descent from Mexico is Hispanic.

          Used to be the races were Caucasian, Asian, and subsaharan. Now ethnic is confused with race. Persia changed name to Iran to curry favor with Hitler and Aryan identity.

          Char Char Binks in reply to Milwaukee. | June 24, 2020 at 3:03 pm

          Whether southern Europeans were considered “white” or not in 1891, or necessarily now, doesn’t really matter, and they were definitely considered Mediterranean, “Caucasian” (more correctly “Caucasoid”) and European, then as now. They certainly weren’t Black or Hispanic. It’s possible that generally darker Sicilian types drew more hostility than northern Italians. It seems they were targeted for being Catholic, foreign, and supposedly, and sometimes actually, criminal, and possibly mafia-linked, not for being “non-white”

          The Friendly Grizzly in reply to Milwaukee. | June 24, 2020 at 7:16 pm

          How odd…! You don’t look Catholic…

        GWB in reply to Milhouse. | June 24, 2020 at 9:55 am

        No un-Constitutional overreach by the federal gov’t is ever “a harmless gesture”. A federal “anti-lynching” law would be a further reinforcement of the anti-freedom nationalization of everything.

          Milhouse in reply to GWB. | June 24, 2020 at 10:12 am

          Back when juries in certain states were routinely refusing to convict those who lynched black people, a federal anti-lynching law would not have been constitutional overreach, it would have been an implementation of the 14th amendment.

          GWB in reply to GWB. | June 24, 2020 at 12:42 pm

          No, Milhouse. A new national-level crime without any backing Constitutional provision (and the 14th Amendment wouldn’t be it) would still be over-reach.

          Now, the federal gov’t stepping in to enforce civil rights (and the 14th Amendment would apply here, as well as a couple of other spots in the Constitution) would not be overreach.

          Milhouse in reply to GWB. | June 24, 2020 at 2:47 pm

          The 14th amendment would be plenty to create a new national-level crime, if that were necessary. That’s what the civil rights laws did.

    I agree about Mark Martin!

    Oh what a different would it would have been!!

    Arminius in reply to nate_in_vc. | June 24, 2020 at 7:29 am

    #CancelNascar. I like the sound of that. It would be fitting if Bubba Wallace just protested himself out of a job.

    But also I’ve been bored with NASCAR for thirty years, ever since Chevy went to V6s and FWD in their “NASCAR eligible” models like the Monte Carlo but the Cup racers just used the body shape with the same old front V8 and RWD configuration.

    When I was 18 in 1980 I bought a ’68 Dodge Charger, the kind you could see racing around the oval track. And my charger had a 440S under the hood. That’s right boys and girls, not a 440M or Magnum. What’s the difference? The S had all the go fast goodies. But while the M came with the cast crank and rods the S came with the forged NASCAR bottom end.

    I will be the first to admit that the cast bottom end on a MOPAR big block is plenty stout and could take all the horsepower that I as a teenager could afford to put in it. As they say in hot rodding, the only substitute for cubic inches is cubic money. As a teenager I didn’t have cubic money, even just basic hot rodding is expensive, and MOPARs especially big blocks are more expensive to build than small block chevys. I wouldn’t have paid extra for the S but everybody thought it was an M; that’s what it said on the air cleaner. You had to get under the car and wipe the grease off the oil pan rail to find out what it really was.

    Then I sold it when I joined the Navy and I’m still kicking myself. I had a chance to redeem myself when I met a car dealer socially in McKinney who was also an enthusiast. He had two cars that he’d give me a deal on (the Shelby GT500KR they were going through in the garage wasn’t one of the two; that was his). He had a ’63 Bel Air two door post with a factory 409 and four speed or a ’68 El Camino with a 350. Not an SS or anything. I wanted something to hot rod and I figured the straight bondo free El Camino would be the right car. I should leave the Bel Air for the collectors.

    Second stupid car move I mad since selling the charger. Almost immediately after buying the El Camino I found out about these guys:

    I could have preserved the collector value of the car by taking the original engine (tranny, too, maybe) out of the car and set it on a cradle in the garage. Then bought new blocks and heads and built the &*%# out of that motor. I would have kept steel rims and hubcaps, but not the original ones because for that sleeper look you can get wider steel rims; however wide would fit under the fenders as I wasn’t going to mangle the body. Besides, the steel rims would hide the fact I upgraded to front disc brakes and larger rear drums (as you get older you learn that being able to slow down and stop is even more important than going fast) and whatever reversible suspension upgrades I made for safety and handling.

    Stupid! Stupid! Still, as a consolation prize the Elco wasn’t bad. It was fun.

    As you may have divined, If I were interested in watching cars that bear no relationship to what I can drive race I’d be a huge Indy or F1 fan.

    NASCAR has gone a long way since 1949 when the top tier was the Strictly Stock circuit. Absolutely no modifications were allowed to cars you could drive off a showroom floor. At first things changed for the better, and then they’ve been plummeting through the toilet as I said for the last thirty years.

No noose is good news.

I wonder why it took 15 FBI agents to figure this out?

Don’t hold your breath waiting for the MSM to cover the final outcome of this story. They never fess up when the truth doesn’t fit their political narrative.

And….a crack team of investigators from the Federal Bureau of Investigation was on the case. If they say “no crime was committed” who are we to question their decision “not to pursue federal charges.” It’s what they do.

Why do people call a simple overhand loop at the end of a rope, a noose?

I routinely used an overhand loop, sometimes doubled, in fishing to connect the main line to a leader and hook. An overhand loop is not adjustable.

A noose / hangman’s knot on the other hand, is adjustable and tying one is much more difficult.

That loop in the Nascar garage wasn’t big enough to hang Adam ‘pencil-neck’ Schiff.

    drednicolson in reply to MrE. | June 23, 2020 at 8:50 pm

    After the deed is done, the knot is pulled so taut and is so difficult to undo that most of the time, the rope would just be cut above the noose and the condemned buried with it still attached.

    tom_swift in reply to MrE. | June 23, 2020 at 10:08 pm

    The weight of the knot is important to a proper noose’s function. It’s not just a slipknot, it’s a heavy slipknot. The cause of death is (in theory) a broken neck, not strangulation. Strangulation’s just the backup. For the same reason the knot is draped to the side of the hangee, not down the back.

    zennyfan in reply to MrE. | June 23, 2020 at 10:14 pm

    For the same reason that a pair of shoelaces dropped in a stairwell set off a panic at a university (forget which one) recently: Such scares get minorities what they want.

    nordic_prince in reply to MrE. | June 24, 2020 at 8:19 am

    These are the same people who think AR stands for “assault rifle” and that AR-15s look “scary.” They wouldn’t know a hangman’s knot from a granny knot.

    DaveGinOly in reply to MrE. | June 24, 2020 at 11:48 am

    I was in a (naturally) mixed-race scout platoon in the US Army in Germany in the mid 70s. We all carried a length of rope for fashioning belay seats for climbing and rappelling. We carried our ropes by hooking them on carabiners clipped to our ALICE packs. Just to be cool, we didn’t make any old loop to clip them with – oh no. We tied them in hangman’s nooses.

    I have a photo of the whole platoon at the end of a day of climbing practice, standing with our watch caps pulled down over our faces, the nooses around our necks, and what would be the standing end of the rope held above our heads with one hand. It didn’t cross anyone’s mind that there was anything “racial” or “insensitive” about it. Everyone in the platoon wanted a print of the photo. We thought it was pretty funny.

He’s like 1/2 white but doesn’t acknowledge it is my guess and he’s a real race victim monger

Rut Roh.

“Former Governor Nikki Haley, Who Wants to Be President, Promotes Fake Bubba Wallace Noose Narrative…

There are a lot of racially motivated politicians who are using the NASCAR ‘fake noose‘ story to proclaim their woke credentials. However, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley is particularly interesting because in many ways she has staked her political future around her expressed racial sensitivities. This bet, she believes, will advance her to the White House. [Background]

While governor of South Carolina, Nikki Haley led a movement to remove all historic references and memorials to the southern confederacy. It was a political calculation she viewed would help her career later on. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise to see this:….”

The last refuge

    She lost me when she failed to understand that calls to cancel Confederate monuments were just the start of the anti-America purge. Someone that stupid and short-sighted and ridiculously uninterested in history is just useless to any free-thinking patriot. Appease the mobs and get stomped for your ignorance is a terrible look, but it’s the only one she will ever wear in my eyes. As a Republican who sought to appease the radical loons now destroying everything in sight, she is part of the problem. Period.

    The more I find out about Nikki Haley, the less I like.

    Voting for her is as bad as voting for Mittens or McCain. She is a piece of work. Hopefully I will not have to make a choice between her and AOC or some other leftists. It’s too bad there isn’t a box to check that says “None of the above”.

    To paraphrase something Mark Steyn once wrote: there is a nationwide constituency for a Trump Party, and another for the Democrat Party, but there doesn’t seem to be a nationwide constituency for a Nikki Haley/Mitt Romneycare/Jeb Bush/GOPe party. What would Haley bring to the debate that is not already a pale echo of what Democrats are already pushing?

    Haley’s opportunistic race-baiting would be like Allied generals, on the eve of D-Day, flying into occupied Europe to give a pep talk to Nazi troops.

Let’s see how ol’ Bubba handles this. If he’s a real man, he‘ll own up to it, admit it was a mistake, apologize, and encourage everyone to get back to racing.

My guess, however, is that he is a characterless pawn in the BLM game.

Knots—all knots—are simply evidence of white privilege.

Nothin’ to see here. Move along.

P.S. Well played, Nicki; well played.

    tiger66, you wrote: “P.S. Well played, Nicki; well played.”

    You forgot the “/sarc,” right?

    Barry in reply to tiger66. | June 23, 2020 at 9:48 pm

    “Let’s see how ol’ Bubba handles this.”

    No way that NASCAR and the people in that garage didn’t know that the tiny piece of rope with a loop on the end came from the garage door. They didn’t care nd pushed the nooooosse story anywy.

    Quick, name 5 black people hung by white people.

    Name 1.

      bw222 in reply to Barry. | June 23, 2020 at 10:36 pm

      If Wallace wants to be so black, why did he culturally misappropriate the white nickname Bunna?

Yup, his dad is white and is his gf


Legitimate question.

In the last 5 years, has there been a SINGLE case where idiots panicking over ‘nooses’ didn’t turn out to be total and complete bullshit?

    I don’t think so. It appears to me that the noose has far more meaning on the left than on the right. We know this because it is used in these #FakeHate crimes a lot but is never a factor in actual crimes.

    Even the roughly 100k (out of a population over 300 million) people who are actual white supremacists/Neo-Nazis don’t lynch anyone anymore, nor do they mysteriously leave nooses lying around.

    These days, they seem to just sit in their little circles of hate and gripe about racist wrongs or whatever. They are truly pathetic and have long been ostracized by normal Americans.

    In short, any time I read “noose,” I’m pretty positive it’s BS. What kind of lame-ass neo-Nazi is so incompetent that he just leaves a noose hanging around Jussie Smollett’s neck? Come on, that was BS from the get go.

    Likewise, what is the point of a neo-Nazi group, or whatever, leaving nooses hanging around? No one does that. You either use them or don’t bother, what’s the upside to randomly hanging nooses all over? Um, zero upside.

    It’s all just disgusting and so transparently BS aimed at President Trump and his “deplorable” and “RAAAACIST” supporters. I’m over it.

    Barry in reply to Olinser. | June 23, 2020 at 9:49 pm

    No, not a single one. They’re all fake.

    Sure, there are racists. They come in all colors.

In all honesty, I have never heard in my 50 years of life of a noose actually being used by itself as a symbol for racism and hatred. Hangings in effigy, yes. A noose by itself? I cannot recall any. Does anyone else remember such a thing?

Maybe I lack imagination, but there are lots of other more likely symbols that I feel a racist hater would use to convey their poison. Whenever I hear a story about a noose being found, I automatically assume that is a fake or mistake, because I recall no incidents of it actually being true and lots of incidents where it was untrue.

An honest question: Why do people use these when they fake a hate crime or jump to the conclusion that exercise ropes, etc. are nooses? What am I missing?

    KEYoder in reply to KEYoder. | June 23, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    tom_swift in reply to KEYoder. | June 23, 2020 at 10:13 pm

    Maybe because burning crosses are a fire hazard.

It’s the emperor’s new clothes all over again. Only the “woke” can see this alleged all-pervasive thing called institutional racism. So they must invent #FakeHate to “raise awareness” and bring us blind sheeple to progressive enlightenment!

healthguyfsu | June 23, 2020 at 10:14 pm

First of all, that “noose” could maybe lynch a bobble head.

Secondly, it is entirely possible that the line dry rotted and broke. I wonder why there aren’t more, though, if that’s the case? It could be that others had been replaced and that one hadn’t. It could also be that we have our next Smollett…stay tuned on “as the wheel turns”.

healthguyfsu | June 23, 2020 at 10:29 pm

Also, regardless of what happened, a little media experiment just emboldened the hustlers to believe that you can get away with a hoax if you come out afterwards praising the fact that “thank god it wasn’t a real act of racism”

haha, it is now NooseCAR, the new sport of racsiting.

Damn, I did not know Jussie Smollett likes racing.

graduated from the epstein school of noose tying

It is absolutely amazing what is seen when hyper sensitive race baiters are looking for targets. Battle flag of North Virginia is racist, a garage door opening rope is a noose, not even mentioning cloud figures. Imagination gone wild.

News flash: there is racism, but all of us are not racists.

A noose is not a symbol of lynching, it’s a symbol of legitimate execution. Although it is no longer used, for centuries hanging was the iconic method of execution, and thus stood for execution. When people would predict that some young hellion would one day hang, they didn’t mean he’d be lynched. Nor did Benjamin Franklin, when he said that the rebels’ only choice was whether to hang together or to hang separately, mean that they would be lynched. When Lord Sandwich told Samuel Foote that he would surely die either of the pox or of the halter, and Foote replied that that depended on whether he embraced Sandwich’s mistress or his principles, they weren’t talking about lynching either.

Indeed the whole reason lynchings were often carried out by hanging was because that was the method used for legitimate executions. The whole point of lynching is to ape execution. A lynching is a murder that puts on a veneer of respectability by dressing up as an execution. Lynchers kill people not because they don’t like them, or for profit, or for any of the other common motives for murder, but because they believe (or claim to believe) the person to be guilty of some capital crime. (And historically they were often correct — many victims of lynching were in fact guilty of the crime they were lynched for.) That’s why it was often done by hanging. To make hanging symbolic of lynching is thus to say that lynching symbolizes itself, which makes it inexplicable.

Also, supposing there really were a noose, what exactly would the crime have been? Why was the FBI investigating it in the first place? With what federal crime could they have charged the person who left it there, had they caught him or her?

    GWB in reply to Milhouse. | June 24, 2020 at 9:42 am

    I will disagree on the “not because they don’t like them” bit. There certainly was some lynching going on during the pre-civil-rights brouhaha that was done simply for “get the h*** out of our town” sorts of motivation.

    Also, supposing there really were a noose, what exactly would the crime have been?
    Well, if it was a noose, it would certainly be an OSHA violation.

    Joe-dallas in reply to Milhouse. | June 24, 2020 at 10:24 am

    During and Post WW2, the vast majority of the executions of nazi’s and (along with approx 90 allied soldiers executed for war crimes) where hanged.

    Germans executed most of their victims and their soldiers who deserted via firing squad, most often impromtu firing squads

Google: Bimini Twist Knot.

Looks like a noose – right? But it’s not a noose. A noose loosens to go over the head, then tightens with load – to snap the neck. A Bimini twist knot is a fixed loop – it won’t, for example, tighten uncomfortably around your hand as you haul down the heavy garage door.

Bimini loops are a strong loop knot used on heavy fishing line for deep sea fishing, often with multiple wire leaders.

So in other words, it looks like exactly the kind of knot a good old boy redneck garage mechanic who likes fast cars and fishing, would tie as an afterthought to make it easier to close up the garage at the end of a hard day.

    Having been a climber/alpinist, I can tell you that there are numerous ways to tie a bight (loop) in the running end of a rope (or a “line” if you’re into sailing). The most common in climbing is the double-loop bowline (the “loop” here referring to how the bight is secured, not the bight itself), aka the high-strength bowline.

15 FBI agents to investigate a door pull rope. Did they get to stay and watch the races?


Anyone that failed to see this from the instant it was first reported is a complete imbecile.

Their so desperate for anything “racist” to justify their HATE, their violence and their looting, that they’ll latch on to anything no matter how absurd.

If there really was “systemic racism” in this country, there would be no shortage of real incidents that could honestly be documented. Instead, thousands of Hate Hoaxes like this. Total fiction.

This black driver, wow – totally RACIST. He sees what’s obviously a hand pull for a garage door, that was NOT tied like a noose at all, and he immediately goes for the “hate crime” angle. Dozens, probably hundreds, of people had seen the exact same hand pull and thought nothing of it. Because there was nothing to see.

Also enjoyed how they went to the other garages along the row and untied similar hand-pulls, to make it seem like this was the only one. LOL!

15 FBI agents took two days to reach the same conclusion that fans had PROVED within an hour, simply by looking up TV coverage of previous races. What a farce. And, WTF is the FBI doing investigating something like this anyway?

Meanwhile, statues being toppled all over the country, those that are federal are federal crimes, and the FBI is nowhere to be seen.

    Barry in reply to Aarradin. | June 24, 2020 at 11:00 am

    Of course it was a hoax and Petty/NASCAR were all a part of the fraud.

    Every garage has the same pull rope hanging from the door. That garage had the pull rope hanging from the door the entire time the team was there, several days, before the hoax was perpetrated.

    NooseCAR was getting hammered by their ban on the Confederate Battle flag so this was cooked up as justification.

Did this RACIST driver file a false police report, or did he just pose for the cameras?

What’s the saying about “dog whistles”? That only dogs can hear them.

When you’re absolutely consumed by racist hatred, and that’s all you think about, then you see racism everywhere. So, something that’s completely innocent like this hand-pull becomes a “noose”.

Oh, and the FBI – what a JOKE! Even after finding that this was just a hand pull, in their report for the press about this, they continue to call it a “noose” – which they themselves had already proved it absolutely was not.

To be fair though, now that they are no longer allowed to investigate Trump for the benefit of Democrats, there’s hundreds of agents with nothing but time on their hands. So, fifteen agents for a HOAX is nothing special. Remember the Trayvon Martin HOAX? Obama sent 40 agents to interview everyone that George Zimmerman had ever met, hoping to find some shred of evidence that he harbored racial hatred against black people like himself. Anyone that was surprised that they turned up absolutely nothing is a complete imbecile.

    I believe you incidentally mentioned why the FBI sent 15 agents – they anticipated having to interview many people. And maybe they did interview many people, including someone(s) they asked for videos and still photos of the garages. You can never know when conducting interviews who might provide you with exactly the information you need, so you interview everyone in sight. You don’t do that with one or two agents, you send a team.

    Good take by Conservative Tree House on Bubba’s non-acceptance of reality and the implications for NASCAR.

      After Brian France’s arrest, the New York Times did a pretty good piece showing that NASCAR was at a “crossroads” – the CEO’s arrest coincided with attendance at NASCAR events having been in steady decline for over a decade.

      I don’t know if NASCAR tacitly colluded with Bubba to make him the face of banning the Confederate flag at NASCAR events to turn him into a SJW hero. Maybe Bubba is sufficiently woke and took on the cause independently. But given how NASCAR handled both banning the flag and Noosegate, it sure seems reasonable to conclude this whole thing was a manufactured, coordinated PR strategy to try to make NASCAR appeal to a broader audience of SJWs.

      If true, it strikes me as desperation and destined to fail. The SJW crowd isn’t going to become NASCAR fans just because Bubba Wallace is promoted as a woke SJW and NASCAR itself is a new bastion of wokeness.

      The SJW lunatics want to ban fossil fuels. They’re not going to sit and watch loud, high performance cars go around in circles.

        a manufactured, coordinated PR strategy to try to make NASCAR appeal to a broader audience of SJWs
        They’re just looking to make their appeal more selective.

    damn. from that very article.

    He said he hadn’t seen the noose himself but had seen photos of it.

    “It wasn’t directed at me,” Wallace added, “but it was a noose.”

      “It wasn’t directed at me,”
      Then how the f* could it be an issue? Or are you just a sensitive snowflake? Was there someone else at whom it was directed?

Interestingly, the left has adopted the guillotine as its hate symbol.

Time to let it go. Your time in the sun has passed.

Does anyone besides a white working man understand how good a knot the noose is? I have tied and used them for years. I use them on lots of equipment around the farm. Green equipment, red, yellow, blue, white, but never black. Every time I think of using one on the black equipment it starts whining, starts getting hot, and then quits working. Claims it’s a noose, not a knot. This crap is getting old. Good luck NASCAR for buying into this before investigating it your damn selves.

I just saw the Fox article where Wallace admitted that he didn’t see the noose, only pictures of it. So he wasn’t directly intimidated. Pretty week case. Personally, pretty much every time I work with ropes I pull a loop through the end to create a handle or a loop to attach to a truck. It allows me to have a tight hold that will still release when I’m done. I’ll have to be more careful in the future. There’s one on my

Any Letterman fans out there? From yesteryear…

David Letterman’s Top 10 reasons why there are no black NASCAR drivers:
# 10 – Have to sit upright while driving.
# 9 – Pistol won’t stay under front seat.
# 8 – Engine noise drowns out the rap music.
# 7 – Pit crew can’t work on car while holding up pants at the same time.
# 6 – They keep trying to carjack Dale Earnhardt Jr.
# 5 – Police cars on track interfere with race.
# 4 – No passenger seat for the Ho.
# 3 – No Cadillacs approved for competition.
# 2 – When they crash their cars, they bail out & run.
# 1 – They can’t wear their helmets sideways.

Those people of NASCAR are all racists! I can tell because they are 100% invested in pleading with the statue destroyers that they are not racists.
“See, I have a friend who’s black. I helped push his car! I hugged him on national TV!”

    Those who construe the loop in the pull-down is a racist symbol can so construe the configuration of the track itself.

    Yes, the Talledega Superspeedway itself symbolizes one big motherfucking hardroad racist noose.

    Let’s hang’em all the motherfuckers.

OK, Bubba. Please note that it doesn’t hurt us when you shoot yourself in both feet at the same time.

FBI says, after investigation, that it’s not a noose, based on the fact that all of the garages have one to pull down the door, and this idiot still insists it’s a noose–doesn’t his garage door need something to pull it down like the others?

Wallace and NASCAR engaged in a knee jerk reaction without ever taking a critical look at the reality of the situation. Taking a walk through the garage area would have made it clear that such loops were a common feature of door pulls in the complex. And, they had been in use for YEARS. Now, Wallace has to walk this back, something he is not doing very well, of look foolish, which he does now. And, this cost the taxpayers of this country an exorbitant amount of money to determine that it was all based upon an erroneous assumption coupled with a knee jerk response.

    Disagree. This was an engineered hoax perpetrated by NASCAR.

    They walk through the garages all week long, every year, a couple times a year. The Petty team had been in that garage all week. The petty team has been in other garages just like that one with the same door pull cord many times, year after year.

    Who do you think put those pull cords up? NASCAR. ISC owns Talladega and ISC is the France family that control NOOSECAR.

    They knew all along there was not a noose. They wanted to prove there was a good reason to ban the Confederate Battle flag.

    And they’re so stupid they don’t think anyone will figure it out.

      Mac45 in reply to Barry. | June 24, 2020 at 3:35 pm

      While possible, I think that is a stretch. The Petty racing people made the complaint to NASCAR and then it is “leaked” to the press. NASCAR, to protect its brand, whines to the FBI, which totally overreacts by sending more agents than were involved in the JFK assassination investigation to “investigate” a door pull rope with a loop tied in it. All to prove that they are not “racists” and to show that they believe that there is systematic racism directed toward blacks in this country.

      The biggest irony is that the people with access to the garage in question are the same people who “reported” the “noose”, Petty Racing. Guess who should have been suspect #1 and gone on the box?

      Bingo!!! We have a winner!

Let us see a picture of Bubba Wallace’s car that includes the endorsement stickers from the NAACP, BLM, antifa, the DCN, and Soros.

Yahoo sports, Bubba, and NASCAR milked this false narrative for all it was worth even if it was a false narrative, a Bubba melt down, and NASCAR playing to the social justice BS before the facts were known. NASCAR fans and the Nation deserve an apology! If I am wrong show us the picture of the fake noose (garage door rope puller). If Bubba isn’t banned for life from NASCAR and Richard Petty (had great admiration for) is not fined for this false narrative hate crime then the US Justice Dept. needs to step in to stop the real enemies attempting to destroy our Country!

Bubba and NASCAR owe everyone, especially NASCAR fans, an apology for making a mountain out of a molehill. I assume the Confederate battle flag ban has been ended since the noose that precipitated the ban was a lie.
