From the Chicago Tribune this afternoon:

Chicago police question actor Jussie Smollett and 2 ‘persons of interest,’ including man who worked on ‘Empire’

Jeremy Gorner, Tracy Swartz, William Lee
Chicago Tribune

Detectives investigating the reported attack on “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett questioned him again Thursday as they interviewed two people of interest, including a man who worked on the show, according to law enforcement sources.

The developments come as Smollett gave his first TV interview about the incident and tried to end doubt that he was attacked in Streeterville more than two weeks ago by two men who shouted slurs at him, hit him and wrapped a rope around his neck while yelling, “This is MAGA country!”

“I respect too much the people — who I am now one of those people — who have been attacked in any way,” he told “Good Morning America” co-anchor Robin Roberts. “You do such a disservice when you lie about things like this.”

The same day the show aired, police questioned Smollett again.

They were also questioning two people of interest who were seen in the area where Smollett says he was attacked around 2 a.m. Jan. 29 while walking from a Subway shop to his apartment in the 300 block of East North Water Street.

A law enforcement source said the two men were brought in for questioning Wednesday night from O’Hare International Airport. One of them worked on “Empire,” the source said.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi emphasized that the two “are not considered suspects at this time.”

Smollett has said two men walked up, yelled racial and homophobic slurs, hit him and wrapped a rope around his neck. None of that was caught by the cameras detectives have checked so far, according to Guglielmi. The cameras did show two people walking near the area around the time of the incident, but the images are dark and the faces are not clear.

Guglielmi said the two men — who sources say are both black — were tracked down “through meticulous investigation.”

Guglielmi released no other details, but a source familiar with the investigation said one of the men was traced through his use of a ride-share service.

I’m giving this story a lot of coverage because it seems like it has the potential, if it works out the way I’m guessing it will, to finally force the media to admit the existence of Hate Hoaxes.

If it does turn out to be a Hate Hoax, Prepare to Pounce!

Smollett refused to let the story fade away, going on Good Morning America today to promote his claims:

Commenter BenKenobi reflects:

When you think about it, in a way we are all Jussie’s attacker.

In truth, Jussie Smollett is a flagrant real hate criminal, having apparently concocted a conspiracy with two Nigerians to racistly smear white male Trump supporters as hate criminals.

Here’s my 2004 article in The American Conservative entitled “Hate Hoax.”

And from 2013 in Taki’s Magazine, my pair of articles on how Hate Hoaxes are an essential part of the Democratic Party’s strategy for holding their Coalition of the Margins together:

KKK is the New UFO

  1. Prosecute the hoaxers and there will be an end to the hate.

    • Replies: @SMK
    Unless it's proven, definitively, beyond any doubt, that he's lying, he won't be prosecuted, and blacks and leftists of all races will view him as the "victim" of a "hate crime" in order to demonize Trump and his supporters, particularly white males, as "racists" and "white supremacists," perpetuating the myth of "systemic racism and rampant "homophobia." And even if it is proven, beyond any doubt, that he's lying, I doubt that he'll be prosecuted, and surely not punished, seriously, by the criminal injustice system, and surely not chastised, severely if at all, by black leaders, the left-wing media, democrats, etc., the likes of Harris, Booker, Sanders, Biden, ad nauseam, who won't apologize for "rushing to judgement" or denounce "fake hate crimes" in general or concede that there is no "epidemic of hate crimes" against blacks and browns and Muslims and homosexuals.

    It won't happen. But it would be fun to watch CPD use charges to extract a series of groveling public confessions and apologies from Smollett, each more refined and genuine, and less Jewish/black/gay aggressive/humblebrag/leftist than the last. "Hmmm, I dunno, Jussie. You don't sound very sorry. Try again."

    They probably won’t. And if they do and he has the nerve to take it trial he gets acquitted if there are just one or two POC on the jury.

  9. Don’t forget that there also was a “threatening letter” with a white substance in it (i think it was determined to be crushed aspirin) sent to Swollett a week or so before the alleged incident. The letter is being investigated by the FBI. If the letter turns out to be manufactured and a part of the hoax, this whole scheme would be too juicy for the MSM to ignore. I think you might be right Steve.

    this whole scheme would be too juicy for the MSM to ignore.
     
    A few years ago (c. 2015 or 16) in South Carolina a black man kidnapped, raped and murdered a beautiful white teenage girl, then fed her corpse to alligators.

    More recently (2017 or 18) in New Hampshire, a black woman kicked down a white woman's door, beat her senseless, stole her baby out of its crib, murdered the baby by placing it on train tracks to be run over, then attempted to dispose of the baby's corpse by dousing it with gasoline and setting it on fire.

    Those would seem to be pretty interesting stories. How much did you hear about them?
  10. The reality of these racist “hate crimes” is always a hoax.

    But when black people are assaulting and killing white people, it is never a hoax but a tragic reality.

    And yet we are supposed to believe in a world where white racists roam the streets assaulting innocent people of color instead the truth that is the exact opposite.

    The world of upside down is our world today.

  11. Folks should demand answers for this case too :

  12. They’re not “hoaxes”. They’re caroms. Bank shots.

    The shot in the photo is not FOR the one ball. The aim is to draw the cue ball back after hitting the one, and knocking the nine ball in the corner pocket. This is not a bank shot. The bank shot would be a three rail affair to do the same thing, but the four ball is in the way.

  15. Guglielmi said the two men — who sources say are both black

    In 2006, I attended a conference in Chicago, and found out that it coincided with that year’s Gay Games.

    My then-fiancée was also in town one night, so we met for a late bite at the Downtowner, where toy trolleys run over your head.

    Outside our window stood a group of young men, all but a couple of them white. We wondered if they might be participants in the Games.

    One short black guy, the least gay-looking of the bunch, answered our question, by launching into a series of pliés and pirouettes down the sidewalk.

    — were tracked down “through meticulous investigation.”

    Grindr?

    That would be like the IDF agents searching Facebook for female draft dodgers, looking for posted selfies outside shellfish restaurants. (Which would disqualify them for religious exemption.) This was actually a news story around 2010.

    Not so much that the police might not believe him, but that they're too whipped (like most of society) to dare question Narrative material. And in this, he's not too far off the mark. Within a few years it'll doubtless be true. So you might say that Smollett's just slightly ahead of his time.

    Unless he tries to throw them under the bus. Would the testimony of two Nigerian immigrants trump that of a "star"?

    1) Did he pay them to do this to get some publicity? Most likely scenario.

    2) Was this a case of gay bashing after he put the moves on a straight Nigerian who did not appreciate the attention? Doubtful since I would have expected more damage done to Smollett.

    3)The two Nigerians were innocent bystanders who escaped an attack by redneck Trump supporters? No mention of 4 wheel drive pick up trucks or AR-15 rifles.

    OT re "Bastardi" - an update of Dorothy Parker's at-one-time famous, "How like me, to put all my eggs into one bastard" -

    "The New York writer had a brief but - at least for her - significant affair in the early 1920s with Charles MacArthur, an emerging playwright and notorious womaniser.
    Both were married and MacArthur was seeing various other women at the same time. When Parker found herself pregnant with his child, she had an abortion. She sunk into depression and slit her wrists, the first of several supposed suicide attempts during her life.
    Although Parker famously said of MacArthur: "How like me, to put all my eggs into one bastard," there had been no solid evidence until now that she had ever written about their relationship.
    Previously published anonymously in an obscure magazine owned by a friend, Pollyanna Gets The Air can now be attributed to the socialite, said Stuart Silverstein, editor of a newly updated anthology of her poetry. It is the only piece of writing by Parker about the affair, which had a lasting impact on her life."

    When I heard the "two persons of interest" I was afraid, to save his own butt, Smollett would accuse them. Given the media, there is no way they could likely prove their innocence. That they are friends is good to hear so somebody won't get wrongly accused.

    That they are friends is good to hear so somebody won’t get wrongly accused.

    Unless he tries to throw them under the bus. Would the testimony of two Nigerian immigrants trump that of a “star”?

    1) Did he pay them to do this to get some publicity? Most likely scenario.

    2) Was this a case of gay bashing after he put the moves on a straight Nigerian who did not appreciate the attention? Doubtful since I would have expected more damage done to Smollett.

    3)The two Nigerians were innocent bystanders who escaped an attack by redneck Trump supporters? No mention of 4 wheel drive pick up trucks or AR-15 rifles.

    OT re “Bastardi” – an update of Dorothy Parker’s at-one-time famous, “How like me, to put all my eggs into one bastard” –

    “The New York writer had a brief but – at least for her – significant affair in the early 1920s with Charles MacArthur, an emerging playwright and notorious womaniser.
    Both were married and MacArthur was seeing various other women at the same time. When Parker found herself pregnant with his child, she had an abortion. She sunk into depression and slit her wrists, the first of several supposed suicide attempts during her life.
    Although Parker famously said of MacArthur: “How like me, to put all my eggs into one bastard,” there had been no solid evidence until now that she had ever written about their relationship.
    Previously published anonymously in an obscure magazine owned by a friend, Pollyanna Gets The Air can now be attributed to the socialite, said Stuart Silverstein, editor of a newly updated anthology of her poetry. It is the only piece of writing by Parker about the affair, which had a lasting impact on her life.”

  105. So apparently MAGA has no meaning in Yoruba, the most prominent language of Nigeria.

    But... in everyone’s favorite Nigerian language, Nigerian Pidgin English, MAGA is a slang term for fool or victim of fraud or hoax. In particular, MAGA was a slang term popularized during the Golden Era of Nigerian Prince email scammers for Americans who fell for their scam.

    MAGA literally means the victim of a scam or fraud in Nigerian Pidgin.

    https://www.quora.com/What-does-maga-mean-in-Nigerian

    At the tail end of the Nigerian Prince Internet Scam Era, there even was a Nigerian Pidgin hit song called Maga Don Pay meaning the fool you scammed is not paying. The video features several Nigerian players cavorting with scantily clad White women.

He’s declaring the emergency so he doesn’t need the bill anyway. But also, Democrats could have hidden a clause in this awful bill that “the president hereby gives up powers” from the various fencing, security and public works laws that the emergency depends on. This emergency power is not Constitutional, it stems from a Cold War era act of Congress, but that also means it can be more easily revoked. It sounds like suspect parts of the bill have been identified: Trump can only build the completely meaningless 55 mile section after getting local permission, from areas known to be controlled by Mexican cartels.

    All the stories about this seem to be coming from Russia. For some reason it is important to the Russians to deny this story - methinks they do doth protest too much, I assume because they supplied the chemicals. It was a chlorine gas attack, not Sarin. Harkin (and the BBC says that it is his personal opinion only) says that some of the footage at the hospital might have been staged but the attack was real. Russians are really overselling this story. Typical RT MO - the Soviets used to do this too: grab something from a (somewhat credible) Western source that backs your position and sell it for all it's worth and more. They do this because they know that no one believes stuff that comes directly from them.

    A half a million people are dead in the Syrian Civil War and there are millions of refugees, many of whom have spilled over into Europe. These people didn't just kill themselves. Assad is a bloody butcher and Putin is his good buddy. Now maybe the people he was fighting were even worse (some of them at least) but as usual (especially when Russians are involved) innocent civilians paid the price.

    I really don't understand the alt-right love for Putin. He is not a lovable guy and he doesn't wish you well. He is trying to advance the interests of Russia and unless you are Russian that's not in your interest, because he sees the world as a zero sum game.

    Smollett was a featured speaker at a fundraiser held at the Skirball Jewish community center in the Bel Air neighborhood of Los Angeles December 6 2018. Black gay Jewish, he gets around for a D list actor in a show nobody ever heard of

    Not BH, a couple miles east in the old Jewish Fairfax neighborhood. The schools on a busy main st, lots of aggressive weirdos. Weirdos love girls high schools

  154. MSM reaction to those things is always the same. First 2 lines about how unfortunately the alleged victim lied. Then the rest of the article or report about how this hurts most then real victims of hate crimes, who, as EVERYBODY knows, are numerous. Also among the 8 billion people on earth they will find at least 3 idiots who posted something angry about the incident on facebook. That will be used as proof that the hate is real.

  155. This Smollett Sandwich sure is ripening in the fridge.

  156. Anon[310] • Disclaimer says:

    One miscalculation that Jussie made is in retaining a publicist and taking their advice to do the sit-down with Robin Roberts. That’s a good thing to do if you’re coming out as gay or HIV positive or if you are repenting for a bad thing you have done in the past, that you admit having done.

    But you don’t do a teary sit-down face-to-face with a journalist for the purpose of lying to the journalist. You make the journalist look like a fool, no matter what her political beliefs. You humiliate her and make her the butt of jokes among her peers. This attaches to a degree to her colleagues at the media outlet.

    You end up getting a major mainstream media outlet pissed at you. You are dead to them. When your career depends on the goodwill of such media outlets to publicize your work, you are in trouble. When the success of television shows and movies depends on the good will of media outlets, you don’t get hired. Maybe your siblings in the business start to pick up a little stink also.

    But who knows … people rebound from all sorts of sleezy things. If I were Jussie, I’d come clean immediately, rat out my accomplices (i.e., “get stitches”), and pay the fine, do the time. And after that maybe do the teary media mea culpa. Go on Dancing with the Stars. Become an activist in the campaign to stamp out anal prison rape. Who knows? There may yet be a future for the guy.

    But, in all seriousness no arrests in the shooting of a one year old black boy last week in Chicago. Shot in the head.

    That’s an important aspect to the story. Jussie smollet’s accusations did take in a city, that has one of the highest murder rates in the country and an abysmal clearance rate for those murders. If police did not have to search for non existent racist homophobic attackers wearing Maga hats they could spend more time trying to solve real crimes.

    Aren't we forgetting something, like the fact that Smollett has a witness?

    https://www.tmz.com/2019/01/31/jussie-smollett-neighbor-suspicious-redneck-rope-attack-chicago/

    A woman who lives in Jussie Smollett's apartment building told cops she saw a suspicious man -- whom she said looked like a "redneck" -- loitering just outside the entrance to the building an hour and a half before Jussie says he was attacked.

    ... She says she noticed what looked like a rope, or a clothesline, protruding from the bottom of his sweatshirt, made of white and blue material.
     
    Hands up, don't shoot!

    Jackie Coakley had witnesses too. Several of her supporters claimed they knew exactly who the perps were–and there were several of them, not just Mr Monahan.

    For the life of me, I don’t know why you people find it so hard to believe in Nigerian MAGA rednecks. I get emails from them every day, threatening me in some way or other. Well, at least I think that’s what they’re doing, but I don’t know for sure because as a Goodwhite I never open emails from Rednecks, Nigerian or otherwise.

    CNN, February 27, 2019: "Although the Smollett case has been proven to be a regrettable hoax, politicians, celebrities, editors, and opinion-leaders throughout the world have declared that this is a 'teachable moment,' a time for us to reflect upon the very real and widespread problem of Trump-inspired racial lynchings and gay-bashing, that casts such a grim shadow over each of us. Perhaps this one particular story is problematic, but there is so much we must all learn from it, and we must engage in dialogue, and begin to put what we learn into activism.

    So he downloaded his call activity into Microsoft Excel, deleted a bunch of calls and wonders why the police can't accept that as evidence? I would assume the two Empire employees are the ones who sent him the letter. It would be interesting to get an honest explanation as to why he chose to do this the way he did on that particular night. It appears it never occurred to him that the police might not believe him.

    Not so much that the police might not believe him, but that they’re too whipped (like most of society) to dare question Narrative material. And in this, he’s not too far off the mark. Within a few years it’ll doubtless be true. So you might say that Smollett’s just slightly ahead of his time.

    I first noticed this "story" as a result of my wife's Yahoo browser being left open.

    Naturally, I jumped to UNZ for some real talk.

    However, one of the Yahoo "headlines" below intrigued me far more... apparently a fellow named "Pete Buttigieg, who is also gay" according to the headline, is tossing his hat in the ring for the 2020 US Presidency. Assuming this must have been a troll job picked up by the MSM, I did a quick Google search and discovered that apparently he is real, and in fact the mayor of South Bend, IN.

    I must know: when will Johnson Inuranus, Mayor of Cockshure, NY announce his candidacy? (He is also gay)

    Or the up-and-coming Richard Endabooty, of questionable citizenship (and also gay) come out for the Presidential race?

    Or what about tranny Jackie Noff as "leader of the free world?"

    1) NEVER ADMITS THEY WERE WRONG. EVER.
    2) has social weapons which they plan to continue to deploy against historical america. such as hate hoaxes. they're highly effective. entire policies have been changed based on acknowledged hoaxes.

    IF ANYTHING, the enemy will stop talking about the hate hoax itself, and talk about how you guys were all racists and gay haters for questioning poor jussie smollett. if you think ANYTHING else will happen, YOU'RE WRONG. the idea that the enemy will acknowledge hate hoaxes is a laughable boomer take. kinda surprised to think steve would have any other take on the matter.

    when does the enemy start covering what's happening in haiti? any day now...
    when does the enemy start covering samuel little?

    Old thread here, but I doing my due diligence. Here’s one more thing to add to that. When the infotainment industry/Lyin’ Press has another such important case on its hands a year from now, they will refer back to the “Smollett case” without noting that it was all made up. Most listeners will have forgotten or never got the real story. That’s how it’s done right. Goebbels would be proud.

    The methodical, slow motion train wreak fashion in which the CPD is handling this is helping to make it harder to memory hole. Now that the hoax possibility is breaking nationally it looks like it will have a long run in the news, since the CPD seems to be in no hurry to finish up.

    The New York Times tentatively hints at the bad news to its readers in this article that mainly is a recap of Smollett's Good Morning America interview by a hard-hitting, no holds barred broadcast journalist of color:

    One of Two Men Questioned in Jussie Smollett Case Appeared on ‘Empire,’ Police Say

    https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/14/arts/television/jussie-smollett-interview.html

    Aside from the two men, evidence has been hard to come by. Last week, a New York Post reporter found an empty hot sauce bottle that smelled of bleach near the site where Smollett said the attack occurred.
     
    A Tabasco bottle? Hey, NYT, have you heard the CPD executed a search warrant at a residence? Have you heard about the phone records?

    If Smollett or his co-conspirators are charged, that will drag it out for months on end.

    I hope the media is diligent in asking for comments from presidential politicians immediately after all reports of hate crimes from now on. Let's see if they learned their lessons.

    Maybe Chicago police have been reading Sun Tsu.

  172. If we are going to “pounce” it would be helpful to have as complete a list as possible of confirmed hate hoaxes, preferably with links to reports from the “respectable” media, so we can refer to it when people claim this is just an isolated event that doesn’t mean anything. Is there such a list?

    Don't forget that there also was a "threatening letter" with a white substance in it (i think it was determined to be crushed aspirin) sent to Swollett a week or so before the alleged incident.

    All the stories about this seem to be coming from Russia. For some reason it is important to the Russians to deny this story – methinks they do doth protest too much, I assume because they supplied the chemicals. It was a chlorine gas attack, not Sarin. Harkin (and the BBC says that it is his personal opinion only) says that some of the footage at the hospital might have been staged but the attack was real. Russians are really overselling this story. Typical RT MO – the Soviets used to do this too: grab something from a (somewhat credible) Western source that backs your position and sell it for all it’s worth and more. They do this because they know that no one believes stuff that comes directly from them.

    A half a million people are dead in the Syrian Civil War and there are millions of refugees, many of whom have spilled over into Europe. These people didn’t just kill themselves. Assad is a bloody butcher and Putin is his good buddy. Now maybe the people he was fighting were even worse (some of them at least) but as usual (especially when Russians are involved) innocent civilians paid the price.

    I really don’t understand the alt-right love for Putin. He is not a lovable guy and he doesn’t wish you well. He is trying to advance the interests of Russia and unless you are Russian that’s not in your interest, because he sees the world as a zero sum game.

    Once again, only if you compare him to prior dictators does he look good. Russia remains just about the most violent, drunk, drug addicted, and corrupt part of Europe. Russians are similar to Balts and Poles but much poorer, despite all the natural resources that are wasted by the government and stolen by the oligarchs.

    A lot of the waste is trying to maintain a large part of the Soviet military, which we are partly to blame for by setting up military alliances all around its borders.

    It also seems to come from the significant overlap between the alt-right and anti-war libertarianism. Many alt-righters started out as anti-war libertarians, and still hold some or even most of those sympathies. And it's not like they become less critical of American foreign policy once they become woke on the JQ.

    So, like a lot of anti-war types, they gravitate toward Russia as the only European power willing, able, or likely to stand up to the US. Sometimes it's hard to tell if you're listening to an America-hating Russian ultranationalist, an anti-American libertarian, or an alt-righter who came over from the anti-war camp.

Many alt-righters started out as anti-war libertarians, and still hold some or even most of those sympathies. And it’s not like they become less critical of American foreign policy once they become woke on the JQ.

    So, like a lot of anti-war types, they gravitate toward Russia as the only European power willing, able, or likely to stand up to the US. Sometimes it’s hard to tell if you’re listening to an America-hating Russian ultranationalist, an anti-American libertarian, or an alt-righter who came over from the anti-war camp.

    All the stories about this seem to be coming from Russia. For some reason it is important to the Russians to deny this story - methinks they do doth protest too much, I assume because they supplied the chemicals. It was a chlorine gas attack, not Sarin. Harkin (and the BBC says that it is his personal opinion only) says that some of the footage at the hospital might have been staged but the attack was real. Russians are really overselling this story. Typical RT MO - the Soviets used to do this too: grab something from a (somewhat credible) Western source that backs your position and sell it for all it's worth and more. They do this because they know that no one believes stuff that comes directly from them.

    A half a million people are dead in the Syrian Civil War and there are millions of refugees, many of whom have spilled over into Europe. These people didn't just kill themselves. Assad is a bloody butcher and Putin is his good buddy. Now maybe the people he was fighting were even worse (some of them at least) but as usual (especially when Russians are involved) innocent civilians paid the price.

    I really don't understand the alt-right love for Putin. He is not a lovable guy and he doesn't wish you well. He is trying to advance the interests of Russia and unless you are Russian that's not in your interest, because he sees the world as a zero sum game.

    “He is trying to advance the interests of Russia and unless you are Russian that’s not in your interest”

    Once again, only if you compare him to prior dictators does he look good. Russia remains just about the most violent, drunk, drug addicted, and corrupt part of Europe. Russians are similar to Balts and Poles but much poorer, despite all the natural resources that are wasted by the government and stolen by the oligarchs.

    A lot of the waste is trying to maintain a large part of the Soviet military, which we are partly to blame for by setting up military alliances all around its borders.

    The better way forward is Derbyshire’s polar alliance between the US/Russia/Japan and other low fertility high IQ countries.

    This is completely backwards - the arrow of causation points in the other direction. The alliances exist because Russia's neighbors are wary of Russian troops paying them a "friendly" visit and staying forever, as Russian troops are wont to do for their neighbors. The US has no desire to invade Russia - that's just Russian paranoia. We wouldn't mind if the guys in charge were not big league kleptocrats - that's really what is keeping Russia poor. But Russians have never showed any genius for democratic, non-corrupt self government. They seem to swing back and forth between chaos and strong man rule. The chaos is so bad that many people prefer strong man rule as the lesser of two evils. Western style democracy doesn't seem to be a reachable goal.

    I think you underestimate the skill and unmitigated gall of the narrative spinners. It will be sagely and condescendingly observed that the actual facts of this particular incident are only really important to horrible white Supremists, and that decent people understand that the real lesson here is that we need to be focusing on the fact that this sort of thing happens every day in major cities and is part of every day life for our marginalized communities, who live lives of constant fear in trump’s America

    One miscalculation that Jussie made is in retaining a publicist and taking their advice to do the sit-down with Robin Roberts. That's a good thing to do if you're coming out as gay or HIV positive or if you are repenting for a bad thing you have done in the past, that you admit having done.

    But you don't do a teary sit-down face-to-face with a journalist for the purpose of lying to the journalist. You make the journalist look like a fool, no matter what her political beliefs. You humiliate her and make her the butt of jokes among her peers. This attaches to a degree to her colleagues at the media outlet.

    You end up getting a major mainstream media outlet pissed at you. You are dead to them. When your career depends on the goodwill of such media outlets to publicize your work, you are in trouble. When the success of television shows and movies depends on the good will of media outlets, you don't get hired. Maybe your siblings in the business start to pick up a little stink also.

    But who knows ... people rebound from all sorts of sleezy things. If I were Jussie, I'd come clean immediately, rat out my accomplices (i.e., "get stitches"), and pay the fine, do the time. And after that maybe do the teary media mea culpa. Go on Dancing with the Stars. Become an activist in the campaign to stamp out anal prison rape. Who knows? There may yet be a future for the guy.

    That’s a good point, although I am not sure that Robin Roberts care about being made a fool of, because she is one.

    She used to be on NFL PrimeTime with Boomer and Tommy in the 90s; she stunk then and she stinks now.

    What a great shame it is that Kyle Yorlets was not lying or hoarding about his assault. No, he was actually murdered in cold blood by fiveupstanding African students of color.

    Gregory Price, too, was not lying about his assault; he is quite dead, shot in cold blood by an African of Color.

    Austin Burroughs, Jack Hough: neither were lying about being assaulted. Both are stone dead, both murdered by Africans of Color.

    Carlie Beaudin was not lying about being knocked to the ground and stomped on the head 40 TIMES by an African of Color. She did not play a nurse on TV, she was an actual nurse -- and we all know how young White female nurses pose a deadly threat to Africans of Color in Trump's America. What choice did a persecuted victim of color have, but to stomp her head in? I'm sure her husband family wish it was a hoax; alas, it is not.

    All of these savage, brutal, thoughtless murders, all done by glorious People of Color, were done in the same time-frame of Jossie Smollett claiming to have been mildly roughed up and called mean names. The victims did not go home carrying their sandwiches. All were murdered by Africans, and all are most assuredly dead.

    The Twitter accounts of Senators Harris, Warren and Booker were too busy to provide comment.

    Upthread, “The Germ Theory of Disease” named five white Americans, each murdered by one or more black Americans around the time of the stop-the-presses racist MAGA-hat attack in Chicago. Each a case of street violence directed at strangers in the course of a robbery or a carjacking or a rape, or just because. Each made the local news in their market, but none were important enough to merit attention by the prestige press.

    Google searches validate Mr./Ms. Germ’s claims.

    * Kyle Yorlets. Nashville NewsChannel 5, robbed then shot by five youths.
    * Gregory Price. St. Louis KMOV4, shot by a fugitive during an attempted carjacking.
    * Austin Burroughs. Austin KXAN, shot by three youths during an attempted robbery.
    * Jack Hough. Atlanta Journal-Constitution, shot by a 24 year old during an attempted robbery.
    * Carlie Beaudin. Milwaukee Fox6, brutally beaten and strangled by a 27 year old in a hospital parking garage.

    We now return you to the Jussie Smollett show.

  195. “no one should have to live in fear of being beaten on the street because of who they are”

    I agree completely but here’s a couple examples of people who “deserve it”, am I right? Well they must because the silence from you assholes at the time was deafening.

    this is just 2 that come to mind, this happens all day every day in America but the only time it matters is if it happens to a “protected group”

    The shot in the photo is not FOR the one ball. The aim is to draw the cue ball back after hitting the one, and knocking the nine ball in the corner pocket. This is not a bank shot. The bank shot would be a three rail affair to do the same thing, but the four ball is in the way.

    Whatever. The point is that the apparent target isn’t the actual target.

  197. @snorlax

    this whole scheme would be too juicy for the MSM to ignore.
     
    A few years ago (c. 2015 or 16) in South Carolina a black man kidnapped, raped and murdered a beautiful white teenage girl, then fed her corpse to alligators.

    More recently (2017 or 18) in New Hampshire, a black woman kicked down a white woman's door, beat her senseless, stole her baby out of its crib, murdered the baby by placing it on train tracks to be run over, then attempted to dispose of the baby's corpse by dousing it with gasoline and setting it on fire.

    Those would seem to be pretty interesting stories. How much did you hear about them?

    A few years ago (c. 2015 or 16) in South Carolina a black man kidnapped, raped and murdered a beautiful white teenage girl, then fed her corpse to alligators.

    Isn’t it illegal to feed alligators, or wild game in general?

    Where is the state game warden?

  198. I’ve come to the conclusion that the greater crime lies not with his clumsy and stupid attempt to reboot after a lull in his career, but with the media (inc. social media) reactions of so many high profile people who pushed and promoted this fantasy.

    From all the stuff you read about Russia having a justifiable phobia of invasion, generated by Russians, Russophiles and Eloi around the world, you'd think Russia was the size of Liechtenstein, constantly getting trampled underfoot. Then you look at that entity called Russia on the world map, and you find out that it is not only the single biggest thing on the map - it's also slightly less than twice the size of the next largest country there. Only after examining that visual aid is it possible for some people to understand that Russia isn't some helpless bystander buffeted by its neighbors - it has been the principal actor in smacking those neighbors around, and many of those neighbors are now Russian provinces, in part or in whole.
