Obvious hoax is hoax

To precisely no one's surprise, the purported attack by MAGA-chanting white men on an attention-seeking black fame whore has been determined to be a hoax by the police:
On Saturday night, Chicago Police confirmed to PJ Media that the testimonies of two black men arrested in the case of Empire star Jussie Smollett have flipped the story. Rather than considering Smollett the victim of an attack, it appears that police may now see him as the perpetrator of a hoax.

"We can confirm that the information received from the individuals questioned by police earlier in the Empire case has in fact shifted the trajectory of the investigation," Chicago Police chief communications officer Anthony Guglielmi told PJ Media. "We've reached out to the Empire cast member's [sic] attorney to request a follow-up interview."

Two law enforcement sources confirmed to CNN that police are considering the Jussie Smollett case a hoax. Police now think the two men they arrested last week — Olabinjo "Ola" Osundairo and his brother Abimbola "Abel" Osundairo — were paid by Smollett to attack him. Chicago Police believe the Empire star orchestrated the assault.
All of these sorts of attacks are always hoaxes. Because in a society that rewards victimhood, the victims manufacture themselves. And in a society dominated by Fake News, the news is reliably false.

UPDATE: The details are now being reported. And now we know the going rate for crisis actors. The imported ones, anyhow.
Jussie Smollett paid two brothers to stage an attack against him, directed them to buy items used in the alleged assault and actually rehearsed it with them, sources say.

Sources say at least one of the brothers bought the rope used in the incident at Smollett’s request. The sources also say the “Empire” actor paid for the rope, which was purchased at the Crafty Beaver Hardware Store in the Ravenswood neighborhood the weekend of Jan. 25.

The brothers, who were questioned by police this week before being released, were paid $3,500 before leaving for Nigeria and were promised an additional $500 upon their return. They left for Nigeria later in the day on Jan. 29, after the attack.

A literal gay op from a half black, half Jew homo.

He was facing the ax from his acting gig on Empire. So he came up with the idea to stage a hate crime for publicity and started off by sending a death threat letter with white powder to himself, from a Trump supporter no less.

Then he paid some actual Wakandans to get some rope and bleach and MAGA hats to LARP the crime. He was only going to call TMZ but it looks like his manager wasn't in on the op and and he called the cops. What was meant to be a means to level up with the NPCs on Twitter so he wouldn't be fired ended being investigated as an actual crime, Oy Vey!

I'd like to say that this will put a break on the constant faking of this shit, but we all know it won't.

Stilicho, sad to hear that; he played a very demanding role, the vilified man descending into madness. "Downfall" was an interesting memoir-movie. Not really off topic; I can picture that infamous repurposed scene with Pelosi sending all the Dems out, except AOC, Corey Booker, and Maxine Waters. Then the shrieking starts ...

Blogger Mr.MantraMan February 17, 2019 8:41 AM  

My guess on the Chicago media is that they were protecting their real estate investments, if this would have happened in some white flight part of town like Mt Greenwood it might have been a feeding frenzy.

When the media colluded with Rahm and the Machine to sideline the Black political establishment, black youths suddenly starting to appear downtown and environs causing havoc, the local media soft pedaled it while we conservatives wailed about the media. Till one night up in Boy's Town the black youths beat the shit of a Holy Gay then the media gloves came off and they collectively told the Black leaders they would be destroyed in the media and the Chiraq was created from that.

IMO two things the media will circle the wagons on in Chicago, real estate values and Israel.

There was a female stripper (exotic dancer) in Nashville by the name of Heaven Lee. Whenever she went on the road to perform elsewhere, she always pulled a publicity stunt and got arrested when she got back home.

I was working at state transportation, bureau of research and planning, when she was arrested on Church Street (downtown). Another time, she wore a big blonde wig and rode a white horse around the state capitol building in a Lady Godiva stunt. Nashville cops were chasing her on foot and she appeared nude, but was wearing a flesh-colored body suit. Those are publicity stunts.

To fake a felony, racial incident, and report it to the police as a crime, where the participants are paid by the "victim", and the facts in the case are all lies....deserves arrest and incarceration.

My suspicion is that he actually wanted the attack to occur in the vicinity of that all-night Subway in order to be witnessed by a few people. With the weather being what it was, I suspect he had a hard time convincing those two to go through with the plan, and they still botched it. He probably realized he couldn't wait outside when they didn't show on time, and if he waited inside it would look too much like he expected them. So he grabbed a sandwich and left, ran into them and did a half-assed job of a fake assault, then split for home. He dithered there for awhile before deciding to make the report himself.
