It’s slowly coming together, folks. For many who were skeptical, your reservations are being validated left and right. For those who believed him, well, there’s no getting around this: you were wrong and you got suckered. The alleged hate crime against actor Jussie Smollett, who stars on the Fox show “Empire,” sparked another national outcry. Two white men punched him, poured bleach on him, and tied a rope around his neck. They wore red hats and told him, “this is MAGA country,” while hurling racist and homophobic slurs; Smollett is black and gay. Oh yes, blame President Trump. Blame his supporters. America is a racist trashcan, right? No doubt we have issues, but it’s not nearly as pervasive or systemic as the liberal media would have you believe. Case in point, this Smollett non-assault that appears to be a total hoax. And this isn’t the first time that such so-called racist incidents have been exposed as total hoaxes. It’s a lengthy history. And yes, I’m rejoicing over this. Excuse me for popping champagne over the fact that a hate crime didn’t happen. And yes, overjoyed that the liberal media got egg on their face once again with their astonishing ability to jump the gun and get everything totally wrong.
The two white men were actually Nigerian brothers who knew Smollett. One was an extra on “Empire.” The other was the actor’s former personal trainer. They bought the rope used in the attack, were reportedly paid by Smollett to execute this faux hate crime, and even held rehearsals. The two are cooperating with the police. The attack itself is similar to the plot of a playSmollett had auditioned for. It stinks to high heaven. And now, we’re hearing that this likely hoax was perpetrated because a racist letter sent to Smollett was not given enough media attention. Yep, some letter with a white powder, later determined to be aspirin, was sent to Smollett days before this non-hate crime was committed. With these new developments, Chicago Police no longer consider Smollett a victim. They want a new interview with him as well. To put a cherry on top of this, Smollett was involved in writing the racist letter sent to him (via CBS Chicago):
Jussie Smollett Was Involved In Creating Racist Letter, Which Later Led To Attack, Sources.— Brad Edwards (@tvbrad) February 19, 2019

The two brothers involved in the Jussie Smollett attack told police that Smollett was behind creating a racist letter that was sent to the actor on the set of his show, “Empire,” according to two sources with first-hand knowledge of the investigation.
And when that letter did not get a “bigger reaction,” Smollett orchestrated the attack a week later with the two men–Ola and Abel Osundairo, sources said. Also Tuesday, sources said the two brothers were seen on a ride share video camera before being dropped off near the location of the attack.
Smollett received a letter containing a white powder Jan. 22. The letter was mailed to Chicago’s Cinespace Studios, where the show “Empire” is filmed. The letter prompted a HAZMAT response. CPD says the “white substance” was later determined to be aspirin.
The note was crafted with letters apparently cut out from magazines to form words. The pieced-together message contained racial and homophobic threats directed at Smollett. A magazine is one of the pieces of evidence retrieved from the brother’s home last week during a search conducted by CPD. Investigators also recovered a book of stamps.
Sources say at least one of the brothers bought the rope used in the incident at Smollett’s request. The sources also say the “Empire” actor paid for the rope, which was purchased at the Crafty Beaver Hardware Store in the Ravenswood neighborhood the weekend of Jan. 25.
The sources say the red hat was bought at an Uptown beauty supply store and that the attack was supposed to happen before Jan. 29. The brothers told detectives the three men rehearsed the attack days prior to it happening. Smollett paid the brothers $3,500.
Talk about a slow-moving trainwreck. So, when will Smollett be charged with filing a false police report? Also, what the hell were you thinking man?
