Jussie Smollett Hate Crime Hoax Trial Begins

Jussie Smollett made headlines in 2019 when he claimed he’d been attacked by racist Trump supporters. It was a time of liberal hysteria and the leftist press ate his story up. The poor guy!

The black actor, who starred in Empire, said he was mauled in January 2019 by white men who told him he wasn’t welcome in “MAGA country” and fitted a noose around his neck.

It was all staged and fake. Once that was revealed, Smollett got charged with “disorderly” behavior and for submitting an untrue police report (which is also a crime). Now he’s on trial.

The Smollett Trial Begins

Smollett’s got a real hot shot for a lawyer, but even big money can’t buy the truth. His lawyer claimed even though the hate crimes were fake, Smollett was a true victim.

If you’re wondering how that works, the lawyer says Smollett was a victim of the actors he paid to attack him. They weren’t just doing it for the money, Smollett’s lawyer says. The two Nigerian brothers Olabinjo Osundairo and Abimbola Osundairo legitimately hated Smollett.

They met him on the set of Empire, where they say he was unhappy with how much he was getting paid and, therefore, hired them for $3,500 to pretend to be racist Trump supporters.

The funny thing here is it actually is believable that two other small-time actors on set would dislike Smollett. He’s a very dislikeable guy. However, to claim he’s a “victim” because the people he paid to attack him enjoyed it and genuinely disliked him?

That’s quite a stretch…

Crazy Details Emerge

It turns out not only did Smollett hire the two brothers to attack him, but he also ran through practices with them beforehand. He wanted them to make it look like a couple of ignorant racists tried to lynch him.

However, Smollett told them not to hit him as hard as they could and to hold back a bit. In addition to saying the brothers hated Smollett, his lawyer said there’s no proof he ever paid them or complained about how much he made on Empire. 

The two brothers already wanted to go after him, then made up the story and staged it in order to blame him, according to Smollett’s lawyer. I don’t know what he’s been smoking, but 26 cops who investigated the crime found Smollett definitely set it up.

The most he’s going to get for this idiocy is a bit of probation anyway.

The Bottom Line

Hollywood and the left are full of people who have a false view of conservatives as racist idiots. They are able to get away with insane things like what Smollett did because they are ignorant.

They deserve all the public shame and punishment they can get for their hate and ignorance.
