Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Jussie Delayed Is Jussie Denied

 

“This is MAGA Country!” inner-city white supremacists shouted at “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett as they put a noose around his neck and poured bleach on him. It happened in the wee hours of the morning, in the middle of a polar vortex, in the noted GOP stronghold of Chicago. The poor actor (I mean rich celebrity) could only defend himself with half-frozen Subway foot-long.

Everyone with more than three brain cells thought the story was nonsense, especially if they had spent any time in Chicago. Everyone but our betters in the national media and Hollywood, that is, who were duped from the jump. Local journalists doggedly revealed the truth and the story quickly collapsed. Today, Jussie faced the consequences:

A grand jury returned a six-count indictment accusing actor Jussie Smollett of lying to Chicago police when he reported a racist and homophobic attack last year, a special prosecutor announced Tuesday.

Smollett faces six counts of disorderly conduct, special prosecutor Dan Webb said in a statement.

Smollett, who is black and gay, was originally charged with disorderly conduct last February for allegedly staging the attack and lying about it to investigators. The charges were dropped the following month with little explanation, angering police officials and then-Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

I’ll let Dave Chappelle have the final word on “Juicy Smullier.”

    Filing a false police report alone is a crime, of course, but every time I think of the possible ramifications had he not been exposed, it makes my blood boil. There might have been race riots across the country. It makes me sick.

    Don’t forget that when the police brought in two white guys that fit Jussie’s description he said that they were the suspects. He was willing to send two white dudes to jail who never did him any harm. I suspect that he is a sociopathic.

    Yes! That was truly despicable. And how dumb does he think people are! The minute he said, “This is MAGA country,” I called my sister and we laughed our butts off. But the biggest giveaway was that he actually thought we’d believe someone recognized him on the street (and in the dark, no less) as if he’s Brad Pitt or something. I mean I had had that show in my DVR for three seasons, and I’d never have recognized him on the street. He was a secondary character. What an idiot.

    as soon as i heard maga country, i knew it was a hoax.

    trump is not popular in chicago.

    the few trump supporters in chicage are silent and in the closet.

    they are not lynching c-list actors

    One positive result was exposing that racialist hack Kim Fox – who looks as though she’ll be reelected.

    Another sign post ignored by Chicagoans on the road to ruin.

    I don’t recall reports of that. And my googling finds nothing.

    He would be particularly hard to recognize in the dark… because of the polar vortex of course.

    I think ctlaw might be right. I’ve read a few timelines of the attack and it mentioned how Jussie Smollett was weirdly reluctant to cooperate with the police. The police found that his ‘attackers’ were Nigerians quite quickly. I heard on a podcast that Jussie Smollett testified against two white guys in a line-up but it was an off the cuff remark. 

    I am amazed at ctlaw’s capacity for detail.
