This week, Black women in Alabama showed out at the polls and kept a racist out of the United States Senate. In a move that surprises no one, supporters of Republican candidate Roy Moore have resorted to conspiracy theories in an attempt to undermine the win. One of the more…interesting responses came from Trump supporter and radio host Bill Mitchell:
I am hearing rumors that black voters from MS were encouraged to cross over into AL and vote. Anyone else hearing this? Anything to it? That might explain the 30% turnout higher than population percentage. Just reporting the rumor.— Bill Mitchell (@mitchellvii) December 13, 2017
Here are three priceless responses to Mitchell’s foolishness.

Yes, I can confirm these rumors. It was I, the reincarnated ancestor of Harriet Tubman, with rifle in hand, who brought a fleet of Mississippi Negroes across the border on the Underground Railroad, which was made of engines, boxcars, tracks and good, liberty-loving white people!— Stacey Patton (@DrStaceyPatton) December 14, 2017
Can confirm that I and about 2500 others were bussed in from Wakanda— champagne and shea butter (@kawaiisca) December 14, 2017
