Jussie Smollett — who up until now I’ve been calling Jessie — claims to be a victim of a hate crime. Where two assailants attacked him, wrapped a noose around his neck, poured bleach on him, called him slurs, and yelled: “This is MAGA country.” In Chicago.
That’s right. MAGA country. Chicago.
If this sounds like something out of a bad movie, mayhaps it’s because the Chicago Police are having a heck of a time finding any evidence (see Uh Oh. So Far, No Footage of Attack on Jussie Smollett Has Been Found and Still No Witnesses to Jussie Smollett Attack. Chicago Police Superintendent Will Hold Smollet Accountable if Claim is False). Now that Jussie has turned over phone records, the police can report… there’s even less evidence now.

This is my shocked face:
Obviously, if the attack happened the accusers need to be punished to the fullest extent of the law. That should go without saying. But if you don’t say it, leftists make things up that you didn’t say. So again: Attackers. Conviction. Prison.
However, if this all turns out to be a hoax, Jussie is the one who needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I also wouldn’t be opposed to an apology from every leftist celebrity and politician who tweeted about this. Claiming that they couldn’t believe this was happening in America.
Because in this case, it’s looking like it didn’t.
