Dylann Roof Confederate Flag Picture: A Hoax?

Via Cousin John

After Dylann Roof walked into an African American church in Charleston and opened fire in June, leaving nine people dead, Confederate flags and monuments around the country began to come down because of the shooter’s presumed racial motivations.

However, new reports and analyses are surfacing that suggest the pictures that started the anti-Confederate campaign are not real, but instead are photo-shopped hoaxes meant to create a narrative surrounding the situation.

  1. So I posted a comment on the main article debunking the whole hoax thing. They're so called "digital experts" didn't do a very good job investigating the image. Here is my post just in case "The Fourth Estate" decides not to allow it to be posted...

    As much as I'd like this to be a fake, in my professional opinion your completely wrong. First off your examining a very poor version of the image. It took me about 30 seconds to find the original image on google images. See here:

    Then I analyzed it via FotoForensics.com. See here:

    It shows no signs of tampering. This is the original image straight from the Kodak Easy Share C1530 camera that was used to create it. I agree the finger looks odd but I think it's just the skin reflecting the flash straight back at the lens. The star on the flag is, in fact, white. There is just something yellow sticking out slightly from behind it. Your so called digital experts need to take a second look.

    1. Looks as if they're not going to allow my post. It just says "Your comment is awaiting moderation."

  2. I don't know about photo-shopped but I always thought the whole event was staged
    along with this picture. Question everything the scum conspire.
    The twenty-nine million dollars I still can't figure out. The Seal Team Six family
    members and all others murdered should be getting the same pay-out.

    1. As I've mentioned many times: If this administration said white was white, I would question that.
