Media won't call out gay black actor on hoax

Jussie Smollett, 35, a star of the TV show, "Empire," said that he was attacked at 2 a.m. in the streets of Chicago by two men in MAGA hats who placed a noose around his neck. He said they threw bleach on him. He had a black eye from the encounter.

He said.

Nine days later, no one has corroborated his tale, video does not confirm it, and he refused to turn his cellphone into police.

It's a hoax, OK? H-O-A-X. He's a 21st century Tawana Brawley.

The Trump-supporters-beat-me-up story is popular among Muslim women, gays, and black people because the media for four years (including his campaign) have told them that Trump supporters are Islamophobic, homophobic, and racist.

The media is going along with Smollett's story.

John Ziegler of Media-ite said he talked to reporters covering the story. Publicly, they report the actor's tale as true.

He wrote, "Behind the scenes, however, based on conversations I have had with multiple people covering the story, there is a radically different take on what really did happen to Smollett. In short, there is near unanimity among police sources that Smollett’s story is very likely not true. And that even the media outlets still regurgitating the current 'party line' don’t really believe it."

Of course reporters report what they are told to report.

He wrote, "The first thing you need to understand about this situation is that, because of Smollett’s persona and the nature of his allegation, no one in law enforcement or the news media wants any part of publicly questioning his story. Everyone knows that if they make any sort of negative implication against a black, gay, liberal, celebrity, victim of a horrible hate crime, that they will be roundly and severely attacked, regardless of whether they turn out to be correct.

"As a conservative, I look at this as his Political Correctness Force Field. Smollett’s protection here is literally about as strong as it gets, especially in Chicago, a city that has a large black population and is extremely liberal."

We used to joke about the media being Pravda. Now it is. The media unashamedly tells lies today.

Telling the truth is dangerous.

Ziegler wrote, "As for the Chicago media, a couple of local television reporters are apparently using Twitter as a confessional for information about the case that their stations currently fear to air. Rob Elgas of the Chicago ABC affiliate, and Rafer Weigel of the Fox station (which carries Smollett’s show 'Empire') have continually updated the developments, or lack thereof, in a way that paints a much different picture from the one that viewers would see on an actual newscast."

Maybe reporters can start blinking their eyes in Morse code to get the truth out in their actualities on TV.

Some speculate that after this month's mayoral election in Chicago, police will charge Smollett with misleading them. We shall see. Celebrity justice makes that an improbable development.

But such a charge might stop hoaxes against Trump supporters.


  1. You know who really gets beat up? Trump supporters, sometimes even when police are nearby providing "security".

    Spit on, hounded, yelled at, hit, threatened, ran out of restaurants, it happens to the young, even kids, and elderly alike.

  2. I was not joking when I started referring to the press as American Pravda. They are that evil, that lacking in morals.
    As for Smallest getting charged, Seriously? In Chiraq? If they do, send an ambulance to my house, I will need CPR.

  3. Really dude, put a rope around your neck? You’re giving a bad name to racists world wide.

    1. Part of the weirdness about the rope...when the police arrived at his apartment some 30+ minutes later, the rope was still around his neck.

  4. Much like the Madonna Constantine fiasco, this hoax will just quietly go away without any confirmation one way or the other. Which pretty much tells your all that you need to know.

  5. This sentence tells us all we need to know about this matter: 'But such a charge might stop hoaxes against Trump supporters.' For that reason alone, he will never be charged, but celebrated for his bravery in producing a hoax.

  6. But it could have happened, he's just "raising awareness" and "courageous" like Mattress Girl. Remember, it's the seriousness of the charge that's important.

  7. Thumbs up to Don on his Viet Nam/Hanoi Hilton "Morse code" reference as these reporters are certainly captives to these politically-correct times on what is allowed to be reported. Freedom slips away so slowly and the captives don't know it until the clanging of the cell door rouses them from their self-induced stupor.

  8. Love the line about "reporters blinking their eyes in Morse code".

    Seriously, somewhere out there, there must be some young journalists with some alertness and courage who are currently embedded in the liberal media, who will start exposing it. Truly, I would like to know where the memo is coming from that gives the left media their lockstep talking points everyday. Definitely a memo is coming from somewhere. Sean Hannity plays video montages often of them all using EXACTLY the same phrases. There is the mega-prize of all journalism in all history coming for the reporter(s) who gets to the bottom of this and exposes it. Personally, I'm sure the source of the daily memo is a committed Communist.

  9. History has shown us that the safest default position when hearing about a hate crime is that it is a hoax until proven otherwise.

  10. His appartment entrance surveillance cameras show him entering with his Subway foot-long sandwich intact in his hand. He may have been beaten with a black eye, bleached and noosed but he held on to his sandwich! I forsee a woke Subway sales campaign with him and the caption "SUBWAY- A SANDWICH WORTH FIGHTING FOR!"

  11. I do believe they will eventually find out it was just a kinder meet.
