The alleged ‘hate crime’ against the 36-year-old black actor Jussie Smollett turned out as most reasonable and intelligent people would’ve expected: it was just the most recent hoax concocted to incite a new wave of hatred against conservative Americans.
Just so we are all on the same page – Smollett a little-known actor on the Fox series Empire – claimed last month that he was assaulted by two white male Trump supporters at 2 AM in downtown Chicago amidst temperatures that were well below zero. He claimed that the rabid white supremacists came up to him and asked, “Are you that Empire faggot?” and then assaulted him because of his race and sexual orientation. He claimed that the men punched him in the face, doused him with bleach and threw a noose around his neck, and yelled ‘This is MAGA country’ as they ran off.
By his own account of the night, Smollett was able to keep his Subway sandwich safe and in hand throughout the attack while he talked with his manager on his cell phone. And somehow someway, he was also able to also fight off both of the racist bigots. What a ninja!
Immediately, to many who heard about this story, things seemed a little bit fishy. There were clearly some gaping holes in the narrative. For example, what Trump supporters do you know who watches the show Empire, would recognize Jussie Smollett, and knows that he is gay? Any? Also, who marauds around downtown Chicago at 2 AM masked in subzero temperatures carrying bleach and a noose? Nobody. Who would believe this nonsense?
But similarly to what happened after the insidious ‘hate crime’ that occurred between the Covington Catholic boys, the Black Hebrew Israelites, and Indian-American Nathan Phillips, the lying mainstream liberal press quickly ran with this story before doing proper due diligence simply because both stories were in complete alignment with their favorite narrative.
We have heard this narrative espoused by the mainstream liberal press over and over again. It goes as follows: conservative white American’s, particularly conservative white American men, are evil racist bigots who are out terrorizing and committing violent crimes against minorities and must be stopped!
But unfortunately for the mainstream liberal media, who would have been perfectly okay with absolutely no further investigation into the ‘hate crime’, the police, local and independent media all exist.
Not long after the alleged attacks, law enforcement officials within the Chicago Police Department were leaking information on the case to local TV stations, news sites, and crime blogs that suggested that many police investigators had serious doubts about Smollet’s story.
But of course, this didn’t stop the swamp of international and national media pundits, journalists, left-wing twitter activists, and Democratic politicians from denouncing the skeptics as ‘conspiracy theorists’. But as police went further into their investigation, Smollett’s story, piece by piece, began to unravel quickly.
According to the two suspects arrested by police – Nigerian bodybuilding brothers Abimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo – Smollet paid them to stage the attack and even rehearsed it a few days before carrying it out. Surveillance footage has shown that the two Nigerians didn’t even wear MAGA hats, but two plain red hats that they had bought from a boutique store. One of the brothers was Smollett’s personal trainer who has made an appearance on the show Empire.
The two brothers have told police that Smollett paid them $3,500 to stage the attack, and that Smollet was also behind the racist letter that was sent to the actor on the set of his show last month on January 22nd. Apparently, because the letter did not get a bigger reaction and didn’t garner as much media attention as Smollet would have liked, he then decided to orchestrate the hate attack a week later with the two Nigerian brothers.
Amidst the police probe, Smollett has been cut from newly produced Empire episodes. The actor has also been strangely absent since Chicago PD have requested an additional interview with him.
Smollet’s attorneys have stated that “There are no plans for Jussie Smollett to meet with Chicago police today. Smollett’s attorneys will keep an active dialogue going with Chicago police on his behalf.”
Donald Trump Jr. described the events surrounding this story artfully in a tweet when he wrote,
“It appears that Jussie Smollett tried to manufacture a hate crime to make Trump supporters look bad, and most of the media not only uncritically accepted his lies as facts for weeks but attacked those who questioned the validity of his false story.”
Look for the hate campaign against conservative Americans to ramp up to levels previously unseen as we near closer to the 2020 elections.
