Perhaps this will trigger a general re-evaluation of the bilge poured forth by the racialist hucksters:
It’s hard to believe it has been nearly five years since the Jussie Smollett hate hoax happened. It’s even harder to believe that despite overwhelming evidence of his guilt, Smollett has only spent 6 days in jail since then. But today an appeals court upheld his conviction so he may finally be finishing out the rest of his sentence.
An appeals court on Friday upheld the disorderly conduct convictions of actor Jussie Smollett, who was accused of staging a racist, homophobic attack against himself in 2019 and then lying about it to Chicago police.
Smollett, who appeared in the TV show “Empire,” challenged the role of a special prosecutor, jury selection, evidence and many other aspects of the case. But all were turned aside in a 2-1 opinion from the Illinois Appellate Court…
A jury convicted Smollett in 2021 on five felony counts of disorderly conduct, a charge that can be filed in Illinois when a person lies to police.
The sentencing back in March of 2022 was quite a scene. Smollett’s lawyers once again tried to claim he deserved a new trial but the judge denied their motion. Finally Judge Linn really uncorked what a lot of people had been feeling, straight to Smollett’s face. “[The] hypocrisy is just astounding,” Linn said. He went on to call Smollett, “profoundly arrogant and selfish and narcissistic.”
In Illinois, no less. I’d have given it poor odds, but there it is. I wonder what sort of pressures Judge Linn had to withstand to uphold that verdict.
Is the “blacks are oppressed” grift coming to an end? Are American Negroes, the most racist demographic in the Western Hemisphere, who’ve been soaked in victimism and hatred of whites since the Sixties, ready to accept that it’s at an end? And what about the Left, which has made racism and victimism the core of its political posture in these United States? Unclear. But we can hope.
