Calling someone Jussie Smollett is racist

The media has decided that you cannot call a black man who lies about racism Jussie Smollett. Calling one black man Jussie Smollett means you call all black men liars, according to actor Daniel Newman, and I suppose others.

At issue is Capitol Police Officer Harry Dunn's testimony before the Star Chamber Subcommittee on Stifling Dissent, aka the Special Committee on January 6. 

Newsweek reported, ""One woman in a pink MAGA shirt yelled, 'you hear that guys, this ****** voted for Joe Biden. Then the crowd, perhaps around 20 people, joined in screaming 'boo! F****** ******.

"No one had ever-ever-called me a '******' while wearing the uniform of the U.S. Capitol Police."

Dunn said so without evidence, to use a media rebuttal common when reporting on President Donald John Trump's statements. 

Surely Officer Dunn's bodycam will provide such evidence. Oh wait. Capitol Police don't wear bodycams.

So it is a he said that she said situation. 

After his testimony, many people dared to express their disbelief, which prompted Newman's admonition. he said, "I’m so ashamed of the White Trash making the name Jussie Smollett trend right now. They’re trying to make people believe all black people are liars & white people are in danger. Have you ignorant SOBs never read a damn HISTORY book? You should be Fired for perpetuating Racism."

He attended Yale.

Maybe he should read up on how Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot handled protesters.

Newsweek's headline read, "‘Jussie Smollett’ Slur Used Against Officer Harry Dunn’s Testimony Sparks Outrage."

The media continues to try to divide us by race, sex, religion, and sexual orientation. That is a downer.

But I like the turn of events on Jussie Smollett, who like Officer Dunn was instantly believed when he said two MAGA supporter attacked him, called him names for being black and gay, and threw a noose on him.

A year from now the media may say the same thing about Harry Dunn.

A real investigation into January 6 would find out why a Capitol Police officer shot and killed an unarmed Ashli Babbitt. It should not be about Harry Dunn's feelings. The average salary for the 2,200 Capitol Police officers is $77,117 per year.

Those 2,200 officers are twice as many cops as Seattle has -- and 3 times as many cops as Minneapolis has.

No person of any race should call any cop (or anyone) the N-word. 

But such abuse comes with the job. And given the propensity of Democrats to lie about conservatives, I just cannot believe Officer Dunn. Sorry. Credibility is earned.
