Historically black Mississippi churches set aflame on Election Day. Democrat candidate calls it ‘terrorism’ to ‘suppress our right to vote’ — then suspect is arrested.

Two historically black churches in Jackson, Mississippi, were deliberately set on fire early Tuesday morning — Election Day — authorities told USA Today.

There were five additional suspected arson cases in the city — and all seven occurred in the area of Jackson State University, a historically black public university, the paper said.

‘We will not allow domestic terrorists to suppress our right to vote’

Mississippi Democrat congressional candidate Shuwaski Young released a statement early Tuesday morning calling the fires acts of “terrorism,” USA Today reported.

“This morning several churches were burned in Jackson, Mississippi on Election Day,” the statement reads. “These cowardly actions invoke historical acts of terrorism when people are fighting for their right to vote and live peacefully as Americans and Mississippians. We will not be deterred and will not be intimidated. We will not allow domestic terrorists to suppress our right to vote. I ask all Mississippians to GO VOTE regardless of this decades-old intimidation tactic to suppress our votes today. Just go VOTE.”
