Jussie Smollett Moves Closer to Hate Hoax List

Trendily black and homosexual Hollyweirdo Jussie Smollett still has not achieved a slot on the Hate Hoax List, because technically we don’t know for a fact that the alleged hate crime he is probably counting on to advance his career was a hoax. But he gets closer every time his name comes up in the news.

Smollett claims he was on the phone with his manager at the time of the supposed attacked, yet refused to turn over phone records to the police until yesterday.

Chicago Police Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said Smollett turned over a PDF file containing a redacted record of phone calls, but he said the redactions were “extreme.”

So extreme are the redactions that Chicago police describe the records as “insufficient proof” of the call.

This is about all we have in the way of evidence to support Smollett’s tale:

Meantime, police also are investigating a half-empty hot sauce bottle with a clear liquid in it, which recently was found near the scene of the alleged attack. Sources said the bottle smelled like bleach, which might corroborate Smollett’s claim his attackers poured a liquid chemical on him.

The bottle was not found during early evidence searches, but discovered later by a newspaper reporter.

Imagine standing trial in a court where that would be accepted as evidence.

Speaking of the media’s role in this farce, his fellow homosexual moonbat of politically privileged pigmentation Don Lemon says he texts Smollett daily:

“Every day I say, ‘I know you think I’m annoying’ – I can show you a text – ‘I know you think I’m annoying you, but I just want to know that you’re OK, and if you need somebody you can talk to me, ’cause there’s not a lot of us out there,’ ” Lemon recalled. “Sometimes he responds; sometimes he doesn’t. He responds and says, ‘You are not annoying.'”

He says that Don Lemon is not annoying? Now we know for sure that Smollett is a liar.

Matt Walsh gives five other reasons not to believe the hype:

1. The story is absurd on its face.

2. Video footage does not support the claims.

3. Smollett has not been eager to help the investigation.

4. Smollett is not behaving like the victim of a vicious beating.

5. His own neighbors don’t believe him.

Click through for amusing details on just how ridiculous it would be to take Smollett’s claims at face value.

As his lame hoax unravels, Smollett clings to the liberal media’s skirt, even resorting to tears:

The Empire actor spoke to ABC’s Robin Roberts for an interview that will air on Good Morning America on Thursday morning.

In a brief promo for the interview, he is seen tearing up after Roberts asked him if he feared for his life at any point during the attack.

At least we will get to see for ourselves whether he has any acting ability without trying to sit through Empire. But then, the show could not be any worse than GMA.

It is the first time the 36-year-old himself will answer questions on camera about the incident which shocked the nation and has brought an avalanche of both sympathy and scrutiny Smollett’s way.

The sympathy is certainly welcome; the scrutiny, not so welcome.

Sometimes it is impossible to prove a negative. But anyone following this spectacle knows that the odds of it not being a hoax are negligible. Only widespread ignorance can prevent Smollett from becoming a laughing stock. Admirers like Don Lemon are sure to help out in that regard; disseminating ignorance is the liberal media’s stock in trade.

Chicago Police Could Charge Jussie Smollett for Hate Hoax

Could there be justice in the Jussie Smollett case, even in single-party Democrat-ruled Chicago? I doubt it, but maybe:

Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson told reporters that if police suspect the report of a racially motivated attack on “Empire” star Jussie Smollett is a hoax, he will be held accountable.

It’s a hoax all right, with about 95% certainty. It has all the clichéd hallmarks, and a city bristling with surveillance cameras has not been able to corroborate Smollett’s improbable and self-serving tale of racist and homophobic oppression. But we can’t add Jussie to the Hate Hoax List until we have proof or a confession, and neither will come without a serious investigation of the incident — not as a hate crime but as a hate hoax.

Johnson said that police have no reason to suspect that Smollett invented the attack or exaggerated his account of it, but the possibility of a hoax could lead to criminal consequences for the television star.

No reason? Have they not noticed how the media has predictably hyped his career over this? This hoax is worth $millions to him, in addition to advancing an ideology that no doubt has been very very good to him.

Criminal consequences for the star of this overpromoted production could spell an end to the epidemic of hate hoaxes we have seen over the past few years. But unless he is actually charged, the case will just fade away, leaving a vague impression in most people’s mind that Smollett really was set upon by racist homophobes who put a noose on him, poured bleach on him, et cetera.

Will Jussie Smollett Join Hate Hoax List?

As a general policy, hoaxes must be confirmed by confession or police investigation to qualify for the Hate Hoax List. Empire star Jussie Smollett may soon find his way onto it.

Smollett was allegedly attacked at 2:00 this morning in Chicago by two men in ski masks.

Reports of the incident state that Smollett was walking from a local Subway sandwich shop when the two men started yelling homophobic and racial slurs to get his attention, including: ‘Aren’t you that f***ot “Empire” n*****?’

Smollett sits atop the Cultural Marxist caste system, being both black and homosexual.

The two then started beating on the actor while pouring bleach on him.

A noose was said to have been tied around his neck during the attack.

Racists always carry around nooses and bleach when they are out and about in Chicago in the middle of the night during single-digit cold for just such purposes.

Sources close to the singer told TMZ that both of the men were white and yelled that ‘this is MAGA country.’

Who would have guessed that homogeneously Democratic Chicago, colloquially known as Chicongo, is MAGA country rife with white supremacists?

Surprisingly, the assailants were not said to be wearing MAGA hats.

Moonbat Ana Navarro aptly described the alleged event as “deplorable.”

Smollett was treated and released at Northwestern Memorial Hospital for a fractured rib, so something must have happened. However, reports are too cartoonishly compliant with the liberal narrative to take at face value. This may have been a repurposed mugging.

Unless it is broadly exposed as a hoax, the story is certain to boost his career.

Apologies to Smollett if this is on the level, but there have been too many hoaxes not to notice when something smells off.

It’s Okay, Jussie Has a Drug Problem

Just when you thought the Jussie Smollett could not possibly get any more disgusting, we come to the part where he tries to evade responsibility by blaming addiction. No need for consequences; just like Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey, all Jussie needs is rehab. Via the Sun:

Smollett told officers he has a drug problem as they arrested him for allegedly staging a “racist and homophobic” street attack to boost his career, according to US reports.

Cops later said the Empire star bought ecstasy from an alleged accomplice suspected of pretending to be an attacker in the hoax.

Incredibly,

If he is convicted, a drug issue could be used as a mitigating factor and get his sentence reduced.

There must actually exist people who think it is not insane to give a criminal a lighter sentence in light of his use of illegal drugs.

A&I’s Chicken Shack: Hate Hoaxing as Marketing?

The more successful hate hoaxes are never definitively exposed. It would be a shame to deny their perpetrators a coveted spot on the Hate Hoax List. Fortunately, some are so improbable that it seems reasonable to place them on the list on a tentative basis, pending evidence that may never be produced, especially when authorities are not always eager to produce it. An example would be A&I’s Chicken Shack in North Carolina:

Customers at a Siler City restaurant are standing up to racism by filling the tables after the owners received hate mail that included numerous racial slurs this week.

Andre Chaney and Ivan Santos opened A&I’s Chicken Shack about three weeks ago…

Chaney, who is black, said he got an unwelcome greeting in a letter he received Wednesday telling him the restaurant has no place in Siler City.

“You will not make it here. Leave town or we will help you,” the letter, signed “White Nationalists,” concluded.

Apologies to Chaney if any of this is on the level, but signed “White Nationalists”? Please. It would not have been less believable if he had signed his marketing missive “Dastardly Racist Villains.”

The letter included a reference to Making America Great Again and re-electing Trump. If you don’t like Trump, you know where to eat in Siler City, NC.

He posted the letter to social media as a way to speak out against the person or people behind it. The post quickly generated support for A&I’s Chicken Shack from people near and far.

The first lesson of 21st century marketing: convince the public that it can signal politically correct virtue by becoming your customer.

Chatham County Sheriff Mike Roberson says he is “really proud of the community response.”

Roberson’s deputies are investigating the letter to determine who sent it, adding that it could lead to felony charges.

Things could get embarrassing if they investigate too hard. Consider what would have happened to Jussie Smollett if he had not had friends in high places.

Erica Thomas Joins Hate Hoax List

The Squad (aka the Jihad Squad, the Gang of Four, AOC+3) got a great deal of obsequious publicity out of Trump’s tweet that if they hate America so much, they so go back to their ancestral homelands. Georgia democrat lawmaker Erica Thomas apparently decided she wanted a piece of the pie.

Via Townhall:

Georgia State Rep. and Minority Leader Erica Thomas (D) took to Twitter on Saturday, saying a white man called her “a lazy SOB” and that she needed to go back to where she came from because she had too many items in the express lane at the local Publix.

Surely, an experience this traumatic dwarfs the Holocaust. See how Rep Thomas has been reduced to sniveling and blubbering like a 2-year-old:

Bleeding heart liberalism means being ruled by people of this caliber.

Unsurprisingly, it appears her nauseating performance was a lie. The alleged racist who supposedly oppressed her is a Cuban-American Democrat named Eric Sparkes who suffers from Trump derangement syndrome and who had publicly denounced Trump for his controversial tweet regarding the Squad moonbats. This same Trump tweet clearly motivated Thomas’s hoax, as she more or less admits by referencing Ilhan Omar in the video. Sparkes showed up at her press conference to pull the rug out from under her hoax.

There really was an argument over Thomas’s inappropriate use of an express lane, but from there her story is evidently fiction.

Thomas confirmed that she is not to be believed by changing her story, making the allegations vaguer. But like Jussie Smollett, she doggedly continues to insist that she was oppressed by racism.

Tim Pool covers this embarrassing affair and offers a theory as to how a loss of purpose leads to moonbattery, leading in turn to using these disgraceful hate hoaxes to prop up the false ideology of liberalism:

Hate Crime Hoax: The Book

The only thing unusual about the Jussie Smollett hate hoax is that because the perpetrator is a Hollyweirdo, it has continued to generate some media interest, even after it was exposed. When it comes to hate incidents against politically preferred groups, hoaxes are not the exception but the rule, as Wilfred Reilly confirms in his recommended book Hate Crime Hoax: How the Left is Selling a Fake Race War.

Reilly is an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Kentucky State, which is a 47% black college. Somehow, he gets away with pulling the curtain back on the hate hoax phenomenon.

His fellow black thought criminal Jason Riley likes the book too:

If “Hate Crime Hoax” merely offered examples to illustrate the extent of this phenomenon—and the book offers nearly 100—it would be providing a much-needed public service. But Mr. Reilly has a larger point to make. The Smollett case isn’t an outlier. Increasingly, it’s the norm. And the media’s relative lack of interest in exposing hoaxes that don’t involve famous figures is a big part of the problem.

Interested readers are of course also referred to the representative Hate Hoax List.

Applied Liberal Rhetoric

The rhetoric spewed by leftist authorities has real-world consequences, even when it is never imposed as law. Lately, congresscritters have been discussing slavery reparations, as if the $trillions flushed down the welfare state were not already more than enough. They know that no reparations bill is likely to pass so long as blacks make up only 13% of the population. The idea is to gin up their base. Looks like this works:

A black parolee arrested for raping and bashing a white woman on the roof of his Bronx apartment building allegedly told a witness that she “deserved” the brutal attack because of slavery, according to court papers.

“She was a white girl. She deserved it because us minorities have been through slavery,” Temar Bishop, 23, allegedly said to someone who witnessed the bloodied 20-year-old woman after the assaults, according to a criminal complaint.

He beat her unconscious in addition to raping her because that is what he has been told the slave masters used to do.

The odds that his victim ever owned any slaves are about the same as the odds that Temar knows slavery existed throughout the world from prehistoric times until the British empire all but stamped it out. Everyone has ancestors who were slaves.

Maybe whites should start demanding reparations. They don’t need to go back centuries to find grievances; they are physically assaulted on a daily basis because of their race right now.

Jenni Monet, Hate Hoaxing SJW on the Warpath

What do you get when you cross Jussie Smollett with Nathan Phillips? Belligerently oppressed Indian activist Jenni Monet, who claims she was racially oppressed by a liquor store that wouldn’t sell to her when she was conspicuously drunk:

Screeching racism when the only racist is herself earns Jenni Monet a coveted slot on the Hate Hoax List.

Why Actual Epidemic of Hate Crimes Is Not News

Sputtering righteousness is just window dressing. The issue is never the issue; the issue is always increasing power for the left. Consider hate crimes. When they increase leftist power, they are treasured by the media, hyped to skies with hyperbolic rhetoric, even though they are often fake. No one needs to fake hate crimes against Jews. But we don’t hear much about them, because they do not advance the narrative:

Orthodox Jews in New York City, specifically in Brooklyn, have experienced alarming rates of physical assault over the past year. The New York Police Department says that hate crimes in the city are up 67 percent this year. Of those, a whopping 80 percent have been anti-Semitic hate crimes. Just this week an Orthodox Jew just walking down the street was attacked from behind, punched in the head by an attacker who then ran away. In another incident this week, an Orthodox Jew was attacked by a group of men, one of whom shouted “You (expletive) Jew.”

This is an all too familiar story in Brooklyn these days, and there is a reason it isn’t being treated as a crisis by our media or government. That reason is that many if not most of the assailants are black or Hispanic men. …

I asked city councilman and candidate for public advocate Joe Borelli if he thought the city and Mayor Bill de Blasio were doing enough. He was succinct, “It seems like the outrage ended when they couldn’t tie these hate crimes to Trump.”

Since Nancy Pelosi lost a power struggle to Ilhan Omar, it has been official that the Democratic Party owns anti-Semitism. Therefore, attacks on Jews will be reported with muddled doubletalk when they are reported at all, since the media establishment is an extension of the Democratic Party. Now back to the Jussie Smollett show.

Why Can’t Candace Clark File a False Police Report?

It is legal now to file a false police report in Illinois, right? Otherwise, hate hoaxer Jussie Smollett would face charges. Yet authorities were willing to throw the book at Candace Clark, apparently only because she does not have influential friends like Smollett…

Appalling as it is that Kim Foxx has not been forced out of office, at least there is enough vestigial respect for justice to inspire a little pushback, even in the Democrat-dominated Chicago area.

Hate Hoax at BerMax Caffé and Bistro

Even in the aftermath of the Jussie Smollett spectacle, the hate hoaxes keep coming. In Winnipeg, the three family members who own BerMax Caffé and Bistro stand accused of staging an anti-Semitic attack on the night before the beginning of Passover:

[Last] Thursday evening, police responded to a report of an assault at the restaurant. A woman said she’d been assaulted, and the restaurant was spray-painted with hateful graffiti, police said.

However, the investigation didn’t go as planned.

“We found evidence of a crime. It just wasn’t a hate crime,” said [Winnipeg police Chief Danny] Smyth, adding the police expended considerable resources investigating and took the report seriously.

That’s the problem with hate hoaxes. Authorities take them too seriously for the good of the hoaxers, consequently discovering what really happened.

At long last, some accountability:

Alexander Berent, 56, Oxana Berent, 48, and Maxim Berent, 29, have all been charged with public mischief and were released after being arrested, police say.

Unless they have powerful friends like Jussie, they are unlikely to get away with it.

Oxana pulled out all the stops; that is, she played the Holocaust card:

“My grandmother’s family, they died in the Holocaust. Just her and her little brother survived, the whole family. We don’t joke about that,” she said, through tears.

How heart-breaking if she is falsely accused. How disgusting if she isn’t — and there is no reason to doubt the police. The Jewish Federation of Winnipeg doesn’t seem to:

“We reiterate our appreciation of the work of the Winnipeg Police Service and their continued support for the Jewish community.”

Had the hoax worked, it would have done wonders for business. Following the incident, Winnipeg rallied behind the Jewish community, according to Ran Ukashi of B’Nai Brith Canada.

Similarly, had Jussie Smollett pulled off his hoax successfully, he would have won an Oscar every year for the rest of life — possibly while two random innocent guys rotted in jail.

Please welcome BerMax Caffé and Bistro to the Hate Hoax List.
