This has to be one of the worst planned out fake hate crime ever. I am sure kindergarteners could have pulled off a better fake hate crime.
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 but also attacked those who questioned the validity of his false story.
When I first heard this case, I commented that this has to be a hoax – what was the chance that two men would be roaming around Chicago during Arctic temperatures and high winds carrying a noose and a bottle of bleach and would happen to run into an anti-Trump activist actor and would happen to assault him stating that Chicago – a totally leftist dominated city – was MAGA territory. Zero chance of that happening. It is excellent that great police work aided by the ubiquitous cameras in the city enabled the Chicago police to pin it down so quickly and conclusively and turn Smollett’s accomplices against him. Brilliant.
Hopefully, they prosecute and convict Smollett, so he does time for the hoax and the waste of taxpayer resources. If enough of the hoaxers are convicted, eventually the common event of leftist hoaxes falsely claiming racism or rape will die out as leftists, slow-learners that they are – realize that even in Chicago lying has consequences.
