Now I don’t know about anyone else, but I’ve lost count of the number of times that we’ve been told about some supposed ‘racist attack’ only to find out later it was phony, ginned up or even self-inflicted. And now apparently there has been another rather farfetched sounding ‘incident’ where the supposed victim is claiming to have been attacked by some deranged supporters of President Trump. A cast member of some television show called “Empire” alleges that he was physically attacked by men in Chicago who shouted racial and homophobic slurs. Now you wouldn’t think that a liberal place like Chicago would be a bastion of Trump supporters. But I digress.
Police did not release the actor’s name but a statement from Fox, which airs “Empire,” identified him as Jussie (Juicy) Smollett, 36. And it should come as no surprise that this guy, ‘Juicy’, is both black and openly gay. Authorities said they are investigating the alleged attack as a ‘hate’ crime. Apparently this guy was walking near the Chicago River downtown around 2 am Tuesday when he was approached by two men who shouted at him, struck him in the face and poured an “unknown substance” on him before one of them wrapped a rope around his neck. Right, everyone goes for a stroll around the murder capital of the Midwest at 2 am.
Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said that when officers first came in contact with ‘Juicy’, he still had a rope around his neck. While being interviewed by detectives, Guglielmi said ‘Juicy’ told them that the attackers yelled he was in “MAGA country,” an apparent reference to the Trump campaign’s “Make America Great Again” slogan. Now Chicago can be described as being a lot of things, but “MAGA country?” I just don’t think so! The police spokesman added that the two men were wearing masks. Investigators have not found any surveillance video or witnesses from which they can put together a description of the offenders. Because there is none, you morons!
And it was then in pretty short order that Kamala Harris, senator from California and a 2020 Democrat presidential hopeful, who oddly enough knows ‘Juicy’ personally, called the attack “outrageous” and “awful.” Harris said, “He is one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I’ve ever met.” And she then went on to add that she’s still learning more details about the incident. But no need to wait for details before taking a quick opportunity to exploit an incident that in all likelihood never occurred. Absolutely nothing about this supposed attack rings true. And if I was a betting man I’d be willing to bet a week’s pay that this entire story is nothing but a bunch of bull!
In reality, what we have here is yet another fake ‘hate crime’ staged by Democrats to attack conservatives, Christians, Trump supporters, and just about anyone else who disagrees with them. We’re supposed to believe that two white supremacists wearing ski masks were casually strolling down the street, at 2 am, recognized this black guy as the homosexual from a television show that it’s doubtful they would EVER watch, and beat him mercilessly as he was leaving an all-night Subway. And, oh by the way, they go out of their way to make sure to mention MAGA so that the “Trump stokes hate” narrative can said to be validated. What’s so hard to believe, here?
In Chicago. One of the most violent cities, if not the most violent city, in the country and during one of the coldest stretches of the year we have two guys running around accosting a black man with bleach and a noose all while wearing ski masks? Now I’m not saying it couldn’t happen, but it does smell like a hoax. It’s all just a little too perfect as it has all the intersectional hate elements: white supremacy/racism mixed in with a touch of Trump hatred, toxic masculinity and a dash of homophobia. I bet there will never be an arrest/conviction or we will hear that he made the entire story up to cover some other personal domestic situation. Sounds to me like a cry for help.
