Hilarious Al Sharpton Response to Hate Hoax Collapse

Of all the absurd liberal reactions to the widely predicted collapse of the Jussie Smollett hate hoax, the one by Al Sharpton may be the most hilarious.

At first Sharpton hurried to exploit the hoax politically, belligerently demanding that Donald Trump explain himself in light of it. But after the hoax came unraveled,

The Rev. Al Sharpton believes Jussie Smollett should face “accountability to the maximum” — if it’s found that he made up the hate attack against him.

If you aren’t rolling on the floor, consider that Al Sharpton achieved his current lofty position in the liberal establishment by serving as spokesman for Tawana Brawley.

At age 15, Tawana Brawley was allegedly raped by a bunch of white guys and left in a trash bag smeared with feces and racial slurs. New York prosecutor Steven Pagones was supposedly among the assailants. It was the quintessential hate hoax, conspicuously improbable yet believed anyway by those with a political will to believe it.

After the hoax had been debunked, Pagones sued Sharpton and fellow racial arsonists Alton Maddox and C. Vernon Mason for defamation. The $65,000 judgment levied against Sharpton was paid on his behalf by supporters who included infamous O.J. lawyer Johnnie Cochran.

Having established himself as a national figure, Sharpton rose to the top of the civil rights racket. He shakes down corporations for massive sums of money, forces Democrat presidential candidates to kiss his ring, leads lethal pogroms, and even has his own show on MSNBC, despite having difficulty reading a teleprompter.

As Tucker Carlson notes, “There are no penalties for hate hoaxes. There are only rewards.” Yet Sharpton is willing to make an exception for his friend Jussie Smollett, for the sake of the patently phony moralistic grandstanding that is the Sharpton trademark.

Unfortunately, despite having wasted taxpayer money and police time on a massive scale, Smollett is unlikely to face serious consequences, other than his name being a punchline forevermore. At least no innocents went to jail for the phony hate crime — not that Smollett was not willing to send them there.
