    I'm calling it now…

    That this is a hoax.

    According to the claims of Jussie Smollett, an actor on the Fox TV show Empire, he was assaulted by two white men who shouted racial and homophobic slurs at him before beating him and pouring bleach on him. Some news outlets are reporting that the assailants were white males who shouted "This Is MAGA Country" at him during the attack.

    There's just one problem. The Chicago police say there was nothing in the police report about anything MAGA-related. Smollett claims he was walking to a Subway at 2 am to get a bite to eat when he was attacked.

    Chicago is a Dem stronghold, and I seriously doubt that anyone is standing around waiting on someone to attack when it's 5° outside, with a noose and bleach.

    Smollett also claims to have received a "ransom style" letter in the mail saying he'd be killed.

    The whole thing reeks of a cover-up or hoax.

    My guess is he got beat up by a jealous lover and didn't want that getting out.

    In the old days, society would blame attacks like this on the blacks. Today, they blame it on conservatives.

    Interesting. I just read of this and Tom, that was my thought as well. The note plus the "crime" were just too fantastical for belief, imo. We'll see what comes out.

    Joyce and I totally agree with you Tom. As she said, what group walks around at 2 in the morning with bleach and rope?

    If the truth is ever published.

    Since it involves a "celebrity" we probably will learn the answer, but so many smaller offenses are either never resolved, or the answer is never broadcast.

    Remember the Barnard professor of color who found a noose on her doorknob? Protests and parades protesting racism followed, investigations promised yada yada.

    It was quickly determined that she put it there herself, as part of her effort to gain tenure, IIRC. Finding that in print was not easy.

    Smaller crimes disappear. In College Park, MD a church sign was vandalized shortly after the 2016 election, and Nazi signs were scribbled on it. The community seized on this as a Trump-inspired hate crime, and they had workshops, sermons, investigations promised, yada yada. It's all faded now with no publicity that I could find about the actual culprit.

    We ask for this kind of crap every time we let someone like the Barnard professor commit a hate crime and get away with it because of her identity. We don't want to "shame" them.

    The hell we don't. That's exactly what we need to so.

    “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.... We really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” —Saikat Chakrabarti, then AOC's Chief of Staff.

    "We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them." —CNN's Don Lemon, showing how to stop demonizing people.

    Not only that, but I had read that when the cops arrived at this guys house, he still had the rope around his neck. Who is gonna leave that there?

    I would have agreed with you up to the last sentence. The report looks like a hoax, beyond that there is only speculation to what might have happened, if anything.

    BTW, in my youth I awakened one morning with a bruised face. I thought I had been in a fight, but was told by a witness that I actually fell. Damned Boozeheimer's disease!

    Well, the three who attacked Trev Broudy in West Hollywood had not only brought a bat with them, they stole a car and drove 45 minutes to maim Trev and his boyfriend. Amazingly, it was not considered a hate crime but an attempt at robbery. That's how it works- black on white crime is economic and completely understandable after all the terrible things we did to black people before we were born.
