In case you care

I don't care about what was an obvious hate crime hoax all along, but apparently a lot of people do. So, discuss amongst yourselves:
“Empire” actor Jussie Smollett has now been charged with disorderly conduct for filing a false police report, the Cook County States Attorney says.

Disorderly conduct is a Class 4 Felony. CBS 2 Legal Analyst Irv Miller says Smollett could face probation to up to 1.5 years in prison.

He is expected in bond court tomorrow at 1:30 p.m. Detectives will make contact with his legal team to negotiate a reasonable surrender for his arrest, according to a spokesman for the Chicago Police Department.
What's the over/under on a deeply emotional Hollywood movie about this little incident, complete with a prison montage and a triumphant redemption arc that culminates in Smollet's character collecting an Oscar, 7 years?

The black chief of police backed his action union he couldn’t any more. Remarkable, in a city that caters to the black underclass for votes.

He is gonna walk

“Empire” star Jussie Smollett may end up dodging potential indictment charges thanks to a last-minute phone call his lawyers made to prosecutors, according to a report Wednesday.

The “Hail Mary” call was made Tuesday — just moments before brothers Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo were set to testify before a grand jury in Chicago, a source close to the investigation told CBS News.

It’s not exactly clear what Smollett’s lawyers told prosecutors, but it was enough for the Cook County prosecutors to postpone the proceeding.


He is connected in someway with Kamala Harris.

He gets off with psychiatric help. The Feds refuse to charge on the terroristic threats thru the mail. He did help with Obama and Clinton Campaign.

"negotiate a reasonable surrender for his arrest" What, no 4AM SWAT team? But he committed a violent felony far worse than lying to investigators! Ah, the privilege of being a Democrat.

He may still walk, but he's been indicted, so that "Hail Mary" fell incomplete.

Poor thing has clearly been traumatized by racist MAGA hat wearing Trump voters. He should get an award, not prison time, for daring to bring awareness to the issue of Trump Nazis oppressing gay people of color. I say give him that Oscar now!

BTW, why does this guy get to negotiate his surrender to police when Roger Stone got SWAT'ed for a potential process crime?

Showing the mainstream public that these events are hoaxes is a good thing. It's widespread enough that it may open a few eyes. I don't know. I'm sure it will be used as ammunition in future word wars.

Still. I can't shake this feeling that there's something wrong. Like it's a distraction, or like I'm missing a deeper shadow.

It's almost too perfect, maybe. The perfect leftist story that the leftist zealot wanted so much to believe suddenly flipped into the perfect story for the right, a disgusting hoax showcasing manufactured racism.

I might just be going crazy, but I don't know what's real anymore. A forced audience of pawns watching a tennis match. Back and forth. Who's up today? Who's down tomorrow? It's nauseating. Hate, hate, hate, everywhere, like we're all waiting for the modern version of the Archduke Ferdinand.

Actually, if the movie makers had any sense, they'd go through the story of his hoax and then years later he's walking through Chicago late at night when . . .

Blogger SemiSpook37 February 21, 2019 8:59 AM  

This is only the beginning. The hoaxed incident was driven by a letter sent to the Empire set, which the reaction to which is the catalyst for the planning out of the "attack".

Since the letter was sent via the US Postal Service, this required investigation by the FBI. In the activity related to the attack, investigators found magazines that had been cut up and looked oddly enough like the pieces in the letter. Um...

There are more charges coming. Federal charges. Not only that, Federal HATE CRIME charges.

Talk about an own goal.

I see a new franchise in the making, Britain Has Smullet

'Then came the smash right into the nose, then two of his friends on either side ricocheting, punching, thumping me, I've never been hit before and the pain absolutely killed.

'I had an instant headache and I absolutely panicked, I was screaming. I ran to the bar crying.

'I jumped over the bar because I was so scared, ran down to the beer cellar and was on the floor in tears, panicking. Obviously I was drunk and it just came as a shock to me.'

The FBI and Postal service have been investigating for a while now. And since there was ground up aspirin in the fake letter, if it can be traced back to Jussie then he's in real trouble.

Blogger Nobody of Consequence February 21, 2019 9:17 AM  

I read elsewhere that he sent a letter to himself with a crushed up aspirin in it making that action some federal crime with a 5 yr or more penalty. Karma is a bitch.

Blogger Damelon Brinn February 21, 2019 9:19 AM  

The most interesting thing about it is that the Chicago authorities pursued or allowed any of this to come out at all. What did he do to lose the usual protection he could expect as a gay black actor?

It's also generated some great memes.

This whole incident is straight out of a Mr. Garrison/Mr. Slave subplot. Just as ridiculously histrionic and destructive.

I care, in the sense that the massive publicity in this case will help people to understand hate hoaxes are a thing and hopefully they'll be dubious the next time one is publicized.

I thought it was just an offshoot of, "Jessie." But what do I know? I'm expecting people to be civil and thoughtful. xD

In the words of Steve Sailer, who's been reporting these manufactured hate-crimes for a long time, it's just Fake Noose. Meanwhile, in the same city, a real hate crime goes unreported except as a platform for the (((fake news))) to advocate for more gun control.

Blogger Iron Spartan February 21, 2019 12:48 PM  

He is going to fry. He damaged the narrative and was dumb enough to get caught doing so. Others who have damaged the narrative at least managed to not be in the spotlight when their fraud came out.

I don't know how badly he had to have fucked up, or who he pissed off, but he second that the proof started coming in that this was a hoax the story should have been memory holed. Instead its playing out live on center stage.

The rehab and redemption cycle if you do something stupid and its spur of moment. The planning aspect of this fraud removed that escape for him.

The Narrative has survived one hoax after another, and a stack of actual black-on-white real-life-horror-movie-plot crimes that reaches to the Moon and back, and still here we are, where the Clown Cop invokes endless references to hangings, lynchings and (by definition, white-on-black) racism in his speech.

The saturation of Reality Inversion in which I live gives me a headache. If the actual history of what whites do to blacks was what blacks actually do to whites, we'd be exterminated.

The popo are suggesting Jussie was really only interested in hiking his salary and did not have some big anti-MAGA political aspirations in league with Auntie Kamala:

What is truly disgusting about this entire affair is the fact that tens of thousands of whites....mostly elderly, and women, and children...have been the victims of the Knockout Game in more than ten years. Over thirty have died of their injuries. Thousands have suffered permanent disabilities from blows to the head. During eight of those years, Obama dismissed the attacks as "young men, just being young men". The attacks have not stopped nor have prosecutors taken an interest in any hint of justice ....except when a white Texas kid dared to play the same Knockout Game. His victim was an older black man, who was not seriously injured, but Obama and his Attorney General (Eric Holder) quickly demanded that the offender face Federal charges, including Hate Crime charges for doing even less than has been done so many times before.

I believe that Smollett is in grave danger, but not from the Chicago police or from any white MAGA guys. There are people who would be more than eager to sacrifice his oily hide to PROVE there is a "white racist agenda" and make it look like revenge. He has much more to fear from his own sorts than any disgusted whites. Of course, "keen eyewitnesses" will say it was a KKK cisgendered bodybuilder in a MAGA hat, wearing a Nazi armband who exacted revenge on the hoax mastermind.

Probably, the shooter would never be found, but they might use the occasion to grab a patsy or fool to take his place. The media would cheer out loud.

Madoff neopaldstinianed several neopalestinians out of their money, which is why he went to jail. They're not supposed to rip off their fellow tribalists.

Blogger Instinctive Bear February 21, 2019 11:08 PM  

I'm surprised nobody mentions that JS was a child actor and probably a victim of pedophilia like so many are, plus he's half jew! It's not surprising that people who have been victimized like this grow up to commit stupid crimes, like with the so-called "Diff'rent Strokes curse"

Blogger sammibandit February 21, 2019 11:17 PM  

Oof, log in unknown if you have allegations on the table like child abuse on Jussie as a victim.

Blogger Instinctive Bear February 21, 2019 11:58 PM  

It says I'm logged in, I don't know why it always shows unknown. These are not allegations, just speculation, seems likely scenario. Now I wonder if he was put up to it but the execution was so incredibly inept it's hard to imagine he was acting other than on his own initiative.

Blogger Instinctive Bear February 22, 2019 12:03 AM  

this is "Unknown" again, I've chosen a screen name now, I hope that helps...
