Remember the famous gay actor Jussie Smollett? Neither do we, but that is who this story is about. It seems Mr. Smollett claims to have been viciously attacked in Chicago on Tuesday night by two homophobic, racist, white men wearing ski masks and gloves.
UPDATE 2/2/19: Chicago Police still cannot locate video of the alleged racist hate crime attack on Jussie
The ubiquitous “2 white men, ski masks and gloves, homophobic, racist, carrying a container of chlorine bleach and had a noose. That is the complete “Race Crime Hate Kit” there isn’t it? But as they forgot to wear their MAGA hats, they made up for it by screaming “MAGA country” at him repeatedly.
By the victims description, it’s clear the perpetrators were Trump supporters and attacked Mr. Smolletts because he was gay AND because he was black. He took himself to a hospital after the attack. Folks, as testified to by Mr. Smollett, this is a hate crime.
These Trump supporting, homophobic, racist, and probably Christian, MAGA loving white men deserve everything that’s coming to them for committing this heinous crime. Here is a photo released by the Chicago Police. They are not being identified as suspects, but rather as “persons of interest”. Please contact the Chicago Police Department if you recognize these two men in the photo. Somebody knows who they are.
Smollett, saying he was just released from the hospital with a fractured rib, facial lacerations, and assorted bruises/abrasions, reported that he was leaving a Subway after eating at about 2 am when a man yelled out “Aren’t you that faggot ‘Empire’ nigger?” They then physically attacked him while screaming racist and homophobic slurs at him, threw bleach on him and put a noose around his neck.
Update 2/4/19: If bleach was the chemical poured on Jussie, it was that new “miracle bleach” that doesn’t freeze at -10° with a -30° wind c
Although not in the initial police report and interview, Smollett also remembered several hours later that the men were also screaming “Make America Great Again”, and told him “you’re in a MAGA country.” It’s a little odd that that salient fact was left out of the initial report of a hate crime. Just sayin’.
And immediately the Left went wild with regurgitated, manufactured outrage. There were no witnesses to the alleged assault, and the bleach and noose thing is quite weird, as that’s not something you normally carry around with you in subzero temperatures. But the Left doesn’t let a little thing like a lack of evidence, or even the “victims” refusal to assist and allow the police to confirm key aspects of his story to warp their
White men did it. White men are guilty. They must be punished, all of them.
Kamala Harris, D-CA: “Jussie Smollett is one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know. I’m praying for his quick recovery. This was an attempted modern day lynching. No one should have to fear for their life because of their sexuality or color of their skin. We must confront this hate. (We would guess that Harris doesn’t know him at all, but this is a great chance for her to get her name in the news again)
Nancy Pelosi, D-CA: The racist, homophobic attac on Jussie Smollett is an affront to our humanity. No one should be attacked for who they are or whom they love. I pray that Jussie has a speedy recovery and that justice is served. May we all commit to ending this hate once and for all.”
Kevin Hart: “Sending prayers your way @jessiesmollett… This is unbelievably sad. Why are we going backwards….this is disgusting.”
Steve Harvey: “I don’t have all that eloquent stuff to say. As a black man in this country, I’m down with you. This ain’t about sexual preference or nothing. This is about coming to the aid of another brother that has tasted the brutality of hatred, racism
Lee Daniels: “You didn’t deserve, nor anybody deserves, to have a noose put around your neck. To have bleach thrown on you. To be called die fucking nigger, or whatever they said to you. We are better than that. America is better than that. It starts at home. We have to love each other regardless of whatever sexual orientation we are. … and no racist fuck can come in and do the things they did to you. Hold your head up, Jussie. I’m with you, I’ll be there in a minute. It’s just another fucking day in America.”
Viola Davis: “ OMG!!
Lena Waithe: “I stand with you
Wilson Cruz: “Words
Olivia Munn: “Jussie Smollett was violently attacked by two white men who poured bleach on him and put a noose around his neck. He was targeted for being black and for being gay.
Cory Booker: “The vicious attack on actor Jussie Smollett was an attempted modern-day lynching. I’m glad he’s safe. To those in Congress who don’t feel the urgency to pass our Anti-Lynching bill designating lynching as a federal hate crime– I urge you to pay attention.”
Sara Ramirez: “This Jussie Smollett story happens TO BLACK BROWN INDIGENOUS QUEER BI+ GAY TRANS & CIS PEOPLE ALL THE TIME. Jussie did NOT fucking deserve this. NONE OF US DO.
Billie Jean King: “The racist, homophobic attack on @JussieSmollett reminds us that crimes targeting people for the color of their skin and who they love still happen. We must stand united against this hateful violence. Sending Jussie love and prayers for a quick recovery.”
Bernie Sanders: “The racist and homophobic attack on Jussie Smollett is a horrific instance of the surging hostility toward minorities around the country. We must come together to eradicate all forms of bigotry and violence.”
As Jussie Smollett was almost unknown to most of America and the world, this is a great PR coup for him. Now everybody has heard of the gay, black actor and his penchant for playing black gay parts. This couldn’t have happened at a better time in his waning career. What a coincidence.
The Chicago Police issued a “community alert” to be on the lookout for two homophobic, racist white men in ski masks and gloves. It’s -10°, not counting the windchill, in Chicago. Do you think anyone, white people included, will be wearing ski masks and gloves with a wind chill approaching -50°?
He also allegedly received a threatening letter that is being investigated by the FBI. The letter had MAGA in upper
The police scoured hundreds of hours of video from the area around where the alleged attack took place. They found video of Mr. Smollett in the area before the attack, entering and leaving the Subway, and walking out of the area.
The location where Smollett says he was attacked had cameras but Chicago police couldn’t locate any video of the attack, though they located video of Smollett who appeared uninjured in the video.
And police have
But why did he wait 40 minutes after the attack to call the police, when he was on his phone during the attack? Did he forget he had his phone on him after receiving the savage beating that could have killed him?
To further muddy the murky waters, Smollett’s manager told police that he was on the phone when his client was attacked and heard the attack and heard them yell at Smollett “MAGA country”.
The police requested to see Smollett’s phone so they can verify the time his manager was speaking with him as then they’ll have the time of the attack nailed down solid. Smollett refuses to allow the police to verify information.
Why has Smollett has become a hostile victim and refuses to cooperate with the police? He refuses to even let them see the time of the call with his manager.
Now the question begs to be asked. What is Jussie Smollett hiding? Was he really attacked? Did he just make up the two white homophobic racists story to gain sympathy or to further foment racial strife? Did he just want to become a part of the anti-Trump resistance by being a fake victim of a racial attack?
Did he self-inflict the injuries to stir up racial animus against whites and Trump supporters? Did he get in a lover’s quarrel and his husband or boyfriend slap him around? Or were they just having rough sex and
Just the fact that he isn’t really mad that he was attacked and possibly almost killed by two white, racist, Trump supporters is suspect. Any normal person would be demanding justice, but Jussie says it is what it is. Let it rest.
We deserve to know the truth as it’s beginning to look like someone has a lot of explaining to do.
