It doesn't matter if it didn't happen because stuff like that IS actually happening.

MAGA hat wearing Trump supporters are physically attacking blacks, gays, and other minorities everywhere.

- if Smollett did in fact orchestrate this attack itd be extremely sad, unfortunate and pathetic and he deserves everything coming to him from career ruin to criminal charges. Most of all because a hoax like this does nothing but hurt the causes hes been championing.

- it still feels like most of you are frothing for this to be a hoax of Smolletts creation for all the wrong reasons.

This whole thing is sad and unfortunate all around.


It was obvious (to me) that his story was utter bullshit as soon as I heard it.

Innocent until proven guilty isnt even the point for me. He told a completely unbelievable story, a story which I never believed.

Innocence or guilt is up for a court to decide. Me? I just dont believe him.

The only people that likely believed the guy were those allowing themselves to be greatly influenced by their confirmation bias.

What's funny about this whole thing is if there really is some resurgence in white supremacy and hate crimes because of Trump, why not focus people's attention on incidents that actually happened instead of making poop up confused2

Youve heard of the law of supply and demand? Well there isnt a large enough supply of real racism to meet the demand.

Correct.

It makes great distractions for politicians and the media.

it's crazy what people think they can get away with in this day and age.

forget about the institutional and government surveillance systems, every single
person around you has the ability to record audio and video.

https://canadafreepress.com/article/jussie-smolletts-sisters-worked-for-barack-obama

Quote:


Jussie Smolletts sisters, actresses and activists, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, and Jazz Smollett-Warwell, worked as leading campaign surrogates for former President Barack Obama, and less than a year ago, videos of Jussie dancing with Michelle Obama went viral.

Jussie Smolletts hate crime story that he was attacked by two men who shouted racial and homophobic slurs at him along with the phrase This is MAGA country, on Jan. 29, seems to be falling apart.
.....
Smollett-Bell posted the following message about her support for Obama on Instagram on President Donald Trumps Inauguration Day:

Feeling a lot of emotions. I remember meeting then Senator @barackobama 9 years ago. Id been invited to introduce him in Nevada during the primaries. He was the underdog, the odds were stacked against him. Said he was too young, too black, too differenthe was an other. Ive always been an other so I saw myself in him. My own relative told me I was wasting my time, going state to state, knocking on doors for this guy with the funny name. I cant tell you how many people hung the phone up on my sister @jazzsmollettwarwell and me as we clocked in our hours, phone banking.

Working as if this was a full time job, I worked for free, because this work was food for my soul....."

.....Less than a year ago, videos of Michelle Obama dancing with Jussie Smollett went viral over the Internet.



How long was Smolletts hate crime story in the making?

And more significantly how many more are on the way?

I was actually surprised to see reports saying that this guy knew his "attackers" on the personal level, pre-planned the event and paid them. To whatever extent that's true that would actually be worse than getting roughed up over a drug deal or slip-n-fall in the ice and then blaming racists for it - which it what I had previously came to suspect.

My daughter was telling me that this guy's family is involved with a reality show
Food Network : Smollett Easts

Quote:

About the Show
Hang out with the Smolletts as they braise, bake and grill their way through the week. From putting on the perfect kids' birthday party to throwing a midnight BBQ for their friends, these six siblings whip up some of their family's favorite recipes while giving us a glimpse into the relationships that make them so much fun. Baby back ribs, steak banh mi tacos and pork chili verde are just some of the mouthwatering dishes that cooking ace Jake Smollett and his brothers and sisters bring to the table. These are meals you won't want to miss!

This is about availability cascades.

If you aren't viewing it through that prism you are blind.
