The Unraveling of a Modern Day Lynching!

They made a big deal out of the fact Jussie Smollett was supposedly the victim of a hate crime, so I’m going to make a big deal out of the fact it was all a hoax and everybody who pushed the story really should apologize.  They were either only too willing to be duped, at best, or left-wing propagandists deliberately pushing a phony narrative to score political points.

This story was made to order for the Left’s phony narrative on race and diversity.  A gay black actor gets beaten up while out for a sandwich at 2 a.m. in downtown Chicago.  The attackers put a noose around his neck and yelled, “This is MAGA country.”  Except we now know it was all a crock, it never happened.

Despite the implausibility of the story, the media ran wild with it, it was all over the news.  Politicians fell all over themselves to condemn the attack and show us how virtuous they were.

Joe Biden said, “homophobia and racism have no place on our streets or in our hearts. We are with you, Jussie.”  Kamala Harris called it a “modern-day lynching”.  The lynching theme was echoed by Senator Cory Booker.  Bernie Sanders said the attack was evidence of “surging hostility” against minorities.  Elizabeth Warren said, “no one should have to live in fear of being beaten on the street because of who they are.”  Except it never happened.

A bevy of Hollywood celebrities fell for it, too.  One tweeted: “OMG!! THIS is why the LGBTQ community continue[sic] to fight to be seen and PROTECTED against hate! We ALL have to take this racist and homophobic act of violence very personally!”  Except it never happened.

Other people who gushed about the fake attack at the time now have egg all over their face.  This includes Adam SchiffRashida TlaibPete Buttigieg, and the Reverend Al Sharpton.  Because it never happened.   That’s what happens when mindless leftists believe their own phony narratives too much.  America is a horrible rotten place full of white supremacists, Ku Klux Klanners who forgot their hoods, and systemic racism.  Sure, and I’m the tooth fairy.

The Jussie Smollett story blew up in their face but, sad to say, that didn’t stop the Left from continuing to push their phony narratives.  Charges of racism continue unabated.   The latest example is the preposterous claim that farmers markets and food charities are evidence of white supremacy.

As was brilliantly observed recently, charges of racism can work only because present-day America is not a fundamentally racist country.  This is not 1861, when slavery existed.  It’s not even 1961, when lunch counters were segregated.  In fact, the most visible racism I can see in 2021 is reverse racism coming from activists who want things like separate dorms, events, and graduation ceremonies for minority college students.

The Left’s whole race narrative has gone just about as far as it can go.  It’s actually counterproductive now, as the Jussie Smollett hate hoax shows.  It’s time to drop this well of poison and get on to better things.

Jussie Smollett Found Guilty In Hate Crime Hoax Case

Disgraced actor Jussie Smollett was found guilty of five charges related to a false police report he filed alleging that he was the victim of a racist and homophobic hate crime.

Smollett, who starred for five seasons on Fox’s “Empire,” was convicted of five charges of disorderly conduct, and faces up to two-and-a-half years in prison. A first time offender, he is likely to be sentenced to probation or community service. The jury returned the verdict after two days of deliberation.

Smollett claimed that while out at 2 a.m. in Chicago in 2019, two men shouted racist and homophobic slurs at him, before punching him, pouring bleach on him and hanging a noose around his neck. The alleged assault received widespread condemnation, with media figures and politicians asserting that he was the victim of a “modern-day lynching.” Smollett later claimed that he was assaulted due to his criticisms of then-President Donald Trump.

However, police later determined that Smollett and two staffers on “Empire” staged the attack. One of the staffers, Olabinjo Osundairo, testified that Smollett orchestrated the hoax in order to gain positive media attention. Another staffer, Abimbola Osundairo, testified that Smollett asked him to “pull the punch so I don’t hurt him.”

Smollett also testified that he and Abimbola Osundairo engaged in a sexual relationship and consumed drugs together. He also testified that he paid the Osundairo brothers $3,500 for a meal plan and personal training, although the brothers testified that the payment was to stage the assault.

Smollett was initially charged with 16 counts of disorderly conduct. However, the state attorney’s office dropped the charges, in a move that some observers alleged was politically-motivated. A special prosecutor was later appointed by a Cook County judge to oversee the case.
