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:

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.

  1. You forgot Jewish.

    Why do you suppose it’s always Jewish that folks “forget?”

    Nobody “forgets” that Smollett is Black.

    Nobody “forgets” that he’s gay, either.

    Do you suppose “forgetting” is conditioned, so that a) if you’re not Jewish you aren’t labeled an “anti-Semite” or if you are Jewish “forgetting” is a way to cover the “sins of the tribe?”

    In a country that refers to Barrack Obama as its "first black President" it isn't suprising that Jussie Smollett also gets labelled as simply black.

    Smollett is Jewish? Dang, I didn't know that. The Name Those Jews Brigade is falling down on the job. This means that he is a triple intersectionalist; no wonder he is confused and making bad decisions.

    I didn't forget--I didn't know. Source?

    Like many others on our side of the great divide, I had never heard of Smollett before the hate hoax made news.
    , @Nicholas Stix
    Nobody forgot that he's a Jew, because he's not. His father was a Jew, but according to Jewish law, the father's religion is irrelevant.
  2. I said this on Sailer’s blog, he might be indicted (ding) and convicted (by a Lakeview/Boystown jury pool? Hard to believe), but he won’t do time. He will plead down and get probation.

    The Chicago machine is real. The mayor is Jewish, and the President of the Board of Cook Co. Commissioners and the Cook Co States Attorney are both black women. The CPD Superintendent is a black man and a puppet.

    The consequences are still real for him, though. This is a high-profile case that captured the country's attention. A lot of the other hate hoaxes get flushed down the memory hole in a week. I don't think this one will.

    Probation and maybe some community service. Heartwarming human interest stories about his community service may be part of his rehabilitation.

    I suspect that Obama as the first black president will at some point in the future be retconned to Obama as the first mixed-race president to make room for a future president who is Deval Patrick-black.
  4. Anonymous[200] • Disclaimer says:

    This all sounds like the German Army congratulating itself that Stalin’s generals finally went too far and that they stuck it to Soviets good this time in that little village near the Oder.

    But

    Protect the mind, heart and spirit of you and your people at all costs.

    sounds like a good 14 words.

  5. He was too clever by half.

    The stupid (and the stupidly arrogant) always are. When you have such people as enemies, you want to goad them, ever so judiciously.

    To paraphrase an old saying, always build them a golden bridge when your enemies want to overextend.

    I guess I'm too cynical. He's going to walk.

    Two other nigh profile, nationally covered criminal cases come to mind:

    OJ Simpson and Jose Zarate.

    Now I am perfectly aware that these cases are not hoaxes, as well as all of the other differences between those cases and this one, but they do possess similarities that cannot be discounted: The defendants were minorities, the victims were white (the victim of this hoax is symbolically the white population of the US,) the local political, judicial and media conglomerate were and continue to be very sympathetic to minority defendants, and the jury pool couldn't have been less favorable for the prosecution. Both men were acquitted of murdering attractive young white women; in this case the crime (filing a false PR) has no victim the prosecution can attach a sympathy eliciting face to. To a leftish jury they may as well be trying to convict Smollett of spitting on the sidewalk.

    I don't see him doing time. Even if he does - a year in the can won't rehabilitate him or help see the error of his ways, or make him contrite. If anything it will exacerbate his hard left worldview. In my personal opinion his real crimes (buggery and who knows what other sexual degeneracy, bigoted hostility to whites, incitement of racial tension, borderline psychopathic narcissism, and generally, just another useless sub human with no real talent) extend much further than false report filing. He should be repatriated to Liberia and allowed never to return.

  19. “He allegedly abused police resources…” in plain English, he sent them on a wild goose chase.

    “exploited raw divisions in this country….” He tricked you Dems into knee jerk support which when his allegations proved to be false was embarrassing for them in general and you in particular.

    “made it harder for every victim of a hate crime to report.” Haha. She squirms out from under her culpability and deflects criticism by feigning sympathy for another potential victim. The Liberal Ploy. Not me! I’m a good person because I feel bad for that poor wretch over there!
