Jussie Smollett Exposes Bias
In breaking news that should be of little surprise to us, the Chicago Police have notified the public that they are pressing charges against Jussie Smollet for making false statements to the police, a felony, from a incident where he claimed he was assaulted in Chicago by white Trump Supporters.
What happened was three weeks ago Jussie Smollett said on the way home he was jumped on by Trump supporters with MAGA hats, was assaulted, said all the time they were doing this they were throwing out hateful Trump rhetoric at him.
But this is not the way things happened, turns out Jussie Smollett hired in brothers from Jamaica, they sure were not white, paid them to assault them, then proceeded to make up the whole story.
The press being the press did not wait for confirmation, you had tweets like this:
Kirsten Gillibrand posted this before she went before the press and made sure to push the narrative that it was Trump supporters doing this.
Pelosi sent this:
“The racist, homophobic attack on @JussieSmollett is an affront to our humanity,” she wrote on Jan. 30. “No one should be attacked for who they are or whom they love. I pray that Jussie has a speedy recovery & that justice is served. May we all commit to ending this hate once & for all.”
Then had to take her tweet down, but never once issued any apology or public statement that she was wrong to judge without facts.
Others wrote things like this:
Empire co-creator Lee Daniels said, “Jussie, you are my son. You didn’t deserve, nor anybody deserves, to have a noose put around your neck . . . We have to love each other regardless of what sexual orientation we are. Because it shows that we are united—on a united front. And no racist f@#$ can come in and do the things that they did to you. Hold your head up, Jussie. I’m with you, I’ll be there in a minute, it’s just another f#$%ing day in America.”
Ellen Page could not wait to come on live TV and blame the attack, you know, the one that never happened on Trump:
I must ask, “Ellen, since you placed the blame of this attack on Trump, now that you know this is a lie, are you going to now say that the reaction is squarely on your own shoulders along with most of Hollywood and liberal leadership, they are after all the ones that drove us to this position where we attack without the facts?”
While I am repulsed by such such attacks, and they do happen, I am even more bothered by the culture of the left today that in their hatred of Trump, seems they are starting to believe that anything is justifiable, even making up claims of events that never happened, or like we saw today, paying people to attack one’s self, then standing up on national TV to try to spark of race wars with a fake narrative.
We have a claim today that America is racist, but that really is not true, while there are people that are racist, that much is true, the nation as a whole is not, otherwise, how do you explain Obama getting elected twice, the vast majority of his voters were whites. I explore and expose the lie that is told in this claim in the article Is America Racist?
The other thing, this is like the claim that Trump is anti-Semitic, anytime this happens a bunch of idiots on the left screams that Trump is somehow homophobic, but there is no sign of him being this. Today if you don’t buy into the demands of the LGBT (not sure what initials they are using this week) crowd, they feel this is a right to label you a homophobic. What is more interesting is the
This is like the accusations of being racist we heard under Obama, it got so bad, and was abused to the point that it finally lost all its stigma, today you scream at someone they are a racist, no one cares, we all know this only means a liberal can’t argue with facts, so they are throwing out rants of being a racist to try to stop the debate.
But what gets me more, are fake news sites like Quartz, they are doubling down, saying this was a hoax, but explain away the lie by saying hate is all around.
Well, my liberal friends, you want to see hate and racism, what about the leftist that scream at white people to go home, people that are the 5th or 6th generation here. Have heard this myself, tell them that on my father’s side, his ancestor came over on the Mayflower, I am part of the Mayflower Society, but that does not matter to them.
What is worse, you have people that automatically apply this claim, all while not even knowing who or what race the person is. Here you have a CNN Legal Analysist claim a Black Man has white privilege:
What is worse, when this woman was caught, she was not apologizing for automatically going to this racist rant, instead then threw her team under the bus for not telling her David Webb was black. So I ask, “Because he was black, does that mean if a white person held his same views, they are caused by “White Privilege,” but because he was African American, this now wasn’t? In other words, what you believe is just not right on wrong by the facts, instead, by the color of your skin, that is the definition of racism.
