Jussie Smollett update

If there just happened to be two men in the area who worked with Smollett, then I refuse to believe that’s just some coincidence, and it leads to the conclusion that although there really was an “attack,” but it was a staged hoax.

There’s a lot of irony here. We assumed that the two guys in the video were just two random guys and there was no attack, but they actually WERE involved with the attack, and through amazing detective work by Chicago PD, they tracked them down and discovered that one of them worked on the set of Empire as an extra and therefore knew Smollett.

  1. Tomorrow we will learn this is all performance art in the mode of Andy Kaufman and Joachim Phoenix.

    • He wanted to call attention to all the hate crimes that go unnoticed in the media these days. What’s wrong with that?

      • I once commented to someone about the “hands up don’t shoot” lie, and the person refused to acknowledge that the lie was even a bad thing, because by making a big deal about that, I was just trying to distract from all the bad stuff that the cops really do, and even though there was a national uproar based on a lie, the uproar was still justified.

  2. How did they find the guys?

    You can’t tell from the videos.

    • Prevalence of CCTV in Chicago probably allowed them to track one or the other all the way home. Time of night and extreme cold would have made it easier as they were probably one of few pairs out that night in an area that is typically ghost town at night anyway.

      • I believe they tracked them to an Uber, and then got records from Uber. Amazing how much Big Brotherism there is.

      • Rumor has it that when Smollett provided a list from his call log (not the actual log), the numbers of those guys were “redacted,” thus giving the cops a tip when they compared it to the real log. If it’s true that they caught them at o’hare, perhaps the pr firm Smollett hired were trying to scoot them out of town. Criminals can be dumb.

  3. “Neighbors said they believe the men, who are Nigerian, are brothers who grew up in that apartment, and have lived there for years. Neighbors described them as friendly and possibly body builders, and said they have long wanted to be actors.”

    Doing the jobs Americans wont do. Good to know Trump’s getting the Nigerian bodybuilder/TV extra vote.

  4. I’ve enjoyed so much this entire story, since I knew from the beginning it would lead to some other non-MAGA attackers. All is proceeding as I’ve foreseen! Delicious!

  5. I don’t understand why no media is talking about the alleged poison pill content of the bill giving local communities a veto on wall construction and giving child sponsors and their relatives immunity …

    It’s like MSM and Fox wanted Trump to sign it

    • Well the conservative media has talked about it. But yes, there has been no mainstream coverage. The bill was actually a disaster and immigration patriots find themselves worse off than before.

  6. Yes, the whole story is a laffer, but the bit about the Nigerians really sparks joy.

    meanwhile Amazon pulled out of New York City. Another win for Alexandria ocasio-cortez. What next?

    • Law and Order is doing a “Law & Order: Hate Crimes” this fall so we should see something “ripped from the headlines.”
