The giddiness among Trumpsters over the Smollett news is gross. This story is awful. He allegedly abused police resources, exploited raw divisions in this country, and made it harder for every victim of a hate crime to report. This is sad no matter your politics.

This hate crime counts among its victims some 63 million Americans. The blue checkmark brigade’s reaction did what SE Cupp asserted it would–made it harder for groups on the receiving end of such hate to ‘report’ it without being subjected to mockery and ridicule.
However Freud be assessed in his entirety, the concept of psychological projection is his greatest contribution:
Frauds are everywhere y’all. Protect the mind, heart and spirit of you and your people at all costs. Just remember… Salt, cocaine and anthrax can all appear to be sugar…(the “refined” kind of course) just be careful out here fam. Happy Sunday. Love you. Real talk. Love on.

Imagine the reaction if Steve King had written Protect the mind, heart and spirit of you and your people at all costs. This is what White Privilege looks like in The Current Year, I guess.
Less cynically, despite the putative victim aegises afforded by his being black and gay, it looks like Smollett is going to be held to account. He was too clever by half. Had he merely fabricated the whole incident, he’d still be being celebrated right now.
