You may have heard about the “attack” against Empire actors Jussie Smollett. The liberal media spread the story that two Trump supporters attacked the gay, black man in Chicago at 3 AM. News outlets, of course, were quick to condemn Trump and all conservatives for the alleged hate crime. But after weeks of investigations and money spent, police have not found evidence to back his story.
Now, it looks like Smollett is the one in big trouble.
From the moment the news broke about Smollett’s attack, things smelled fishy. The actor claimed two white men dressed in MAGA hats attacked him outside a club where he just performed. Smollett claimed they were shouting racial and homophobic slurs, saying, “This is MAGA country!” He even said he recorded some of the attacked via his phone.
Hmm… apparently, he wants us to believe hardcore Trump supporters hang out at gay clubs in Chicago at 3 in the morning. And that they go out of their way to assault a man whom nobody’s heard of.
Smollett said he was went to the hospital and was admitted for his injuries. We later learned this wasn’t true. Based on photos and video of the man, it didn’t even look like he was injured that much.
Police launched an investigation, calling the alleged attack a hate crime. After scouring surveillance footage across the city, they found noting. They best they got was a few seconds of footage of two men walking down the street–somewhere nearby the supposed attack. But nothing to back Smollett’s claim, which included how they choked him with a rope (i.e.: lynching).
Smollett then refused to hand over his phone to investigators.
Despite the total lack of evidence and suspicious circumstances, the liberal media jumped on this story immediately. They became Smollett’s PR firm, broadcasting his claim across every conceivable platform. They instantly accused all Trump supporters of being bigots who are quick to attack a poor innocent, rich, black gay man.
Of course, many blamed Trump as well. Because, you know, Trump is always calling for violence against gay, black actors from Hollywood.
Oh wait, no. It’s Democrats who consistently call for violence against people. My mistake.
More than a few conservative pundits were suspicious of Smollett’s accusations. News surfaced that police apprehended two men as “persons of interest” in the case. But they weren’t white, MAGA patriots.
They were two Nigerian actors who starred as extra’s on Empire. Hmm… that’s odd.
Now police are reporting what we thought all along.
The Chicago Police Department believe Empire actor Jussie Smollett staged an attack on himself last month, according to a report.
“Chicago Police believe Jussie Smollett paid two men to orchestrate the assault…”
Further, the brothers were paid $3,500 before traveling to Nigeria and promised an extra $500 upon their return, according to De Mar…

Now this is very interesting. So, you’re saying the entire thing was just a stunt to slander conservative white people!? Imagine they surprise!
How many liberal news outlets are going to take back all the damning things they said about us? How many reporters and journalists are going to apologize for accusing hard-working, American-loving families–whom they said stoke the first of anti-gay violence?
I’m guessing… none.
This is the same irresponsible mainstream media who attacked teenagers for supposedly harassing an old Native American. Only to discover it was the man who was harassing them. The media’s shocking lack of accountability and even basic journalistic skills caused these young men to receive death threats and mountains of abuse.
This is the same mainstream media that so despises Trump and his supporters (i.e.: millions of Americans), that they don’t stop to fact check, clarify, or investigate. They simply push any fake narrative that makes conservatives and Republicans look bad.
And they wonder why we call them fake news.
This attack was a ruse by Smollett to get his name in the news. He hoped that if he lied about over 60 million Americans–and the President of the United States–he’d get a boost to his career.
While what he did was wrong–and he deserves punishment–you might say it wasn’t really his fault. He knew the stupid MSM would run with his fake story. He knew that he simply had to say Trump was too blame to get weeks’ worth of nationwide publicity. Every last Democrat and journalist embarrassed right now cannot blame Smollett.
They can only blame themselves. Sad thing is, they won’t even learn from this.
