Jussie Smollett might have staged his own hate crime after he was charged with one count of disorderly conduct for filing a false police report.
The famous homosexual African-American actor claimed to be the victim of a grisly hate crime last month when he alleged that two MAGA-hat-wearing men assaulted him late at night during a walk home, called him homophobic and racial slurs, yelled that “this is MAGA country”, poured bleach on him, and even tied a noose around his neck. Smollett’s story immediately went viral and everyone from the Mainstream Media to President Trump condemned it in the strongest possible terms, though it now turns out that the two suspects who police just interviewed supposedly said that the actor paid them to pull off what basically amounts to a false flag hate crime pinned on Trump supporters in order to generate nationwide sympathy and avoid being written off of his TV show.
As incredulous as it sounds, media reports say that one of the two Nigerian brothers actually worked with Sullett as an extra and purchased the rope that the self-professed victim says was tied around his neck. Commentators had begun poking holes in Sullett’s story ever since he refused to hand over his un-redacted cell phone records from the night of the alleged attack, plus the fact that police weren’t called until at least over half an hour after Sullett said that the incident occurred, both of which were extremely suspicious actions of someone who just experienced a 21st-century lynching in the unofficial hometown of America’s first black president. As a result of this and perhaps other currently undisclosed evidence, he was just charged with one felony count of disorderly conduct for filing a false police report.
As bad as this possible conspiracy may sound, it could have been worse if it was caught on camera. Breitbart’s Editor-at-Large John Nolte wrote earlier this week about the chain of events that could have unfolded had a nearby surveillance camera faced the other way and filmed the incident, predicting that “Once police had the footage, it would leak. Once cable and network news had the footage, it would loop endlessly. The fact that the two brothers are black wouldn’t matter. CBS Chicago reports that a black face mask was found in their apartment. Smollett told police the attackers wore face masks. With those face masks, the organized left (the media, Democrats, celebrities) were allowed to assume his racist attackers were white.” In other words, this possibly staged attack could have been exploited to incite racial tensions and smear all Trump supporters as racist homophobic lynchers.
It remains to be seen whether the media’s scandalous reports about Smollett potentially paying two African immigrants – one of whom he might have known from work – to pull off a racist and homophobic hate crime against him are true or not, but if they are, then he should be condemned by everyone who previously supported him and found guilty in the court of law for what would in that case be his shameful self-promotional stunt designed to save his job. The actor should of course be presumed to be innocent until proven guilty and the media might have just gotten the latest twist in this entire story totally wrong, but then again, it could also be that the media was so eager to spread his original story that they didn’t bother to scrutinize the suspicious facts.
