Covington Redux

It’s deja vu all over again for MAGA Hate Trumps Truth-ers.

On Monday, January 29, 2019, actor Jussie Smollett told Chicago police that two guys in MAGA hats physically and verbally assaulted him, poured bleach on his head, and put a noose around his neck.

  • The alleged incident occurred at 2 a.m. during the polar vortex.
  • Bleach starts to freeze at about 19 degrees Fahrenheit.

Video surveillance at his condo shows Smollett after the alleged attack.

  • He walked past security to the elevator of his condo.
  • He didn’t stop to tell the security guards that two guys had just “beat the hell out of him” and “broke his ribs” and “poured bleach on” him.
  • He was carrying a Subway sandwich.

Smollet told police he was talking to his manager on his phone during the assault.

  • Then he refused to turn his phone over to them for confirmation.

Naturally, the Fake News and SJWs were all over it.

  • Never mind learning from the Covington debacle and, you know, waiting for FACTS.

The “persons of interest” are guys on a video who were walking away from the area fifteen minutes before Smollett said he was attacked.

  • There’s no video of the attack.
  • Smollett has since admitted his ribs are fine.

Chicago Police have announced they will charge Smollett if they can prove he lied to police. They say they are looking closely at the rope that Smollett was wearing around his neck when he reported the alleged incident.

  1. Chicago -14℉ — yes, these are days I really don’t miss living in Chicago. We may get down to 11 for a little while night after next, then things warm up. 😀

    Did you run across mention of Smoillette still having the “noose” around his neck when the police got to his place… forty minutes later? (Did the security guys see him wearing it?)

    Or the policeman who said it appeared to be light-weight clothesline, apparently just unpackaged, not really tied in a noose at all?

    Now, I don’t know where the bleach thing came from, but all I read was that he said, “some liquid.” Sure, most liquids would be frozen at those temperatures (and some of my favorite video commentators have had fun with that), but who’s to say the two goons hadn’t recently emerged from someplace warm, car or apartment, and the liquid hadn’t had time to freeze up?

    There they were, two trouble-seeking guys wearing MAGA hats over their hoodies, an ill-looped bit of clothesline and a quickly-cooling jug of liquid, when they recognized the incredibly popular gay black actor from that tv show something something, looped a rope around his neck, splashed him with something, and ran off yelling “MAGA MAGA NEENER NEENER.”

    Yeah. He may be an actor, but he’s sure no good as a writer.

    Were I a gambling man, my money would be on a backalley gay pickup attempt gone wrong, one way or another. Just at a guess.

    I made the comment on Facebook that I thought this was a vicious hoax,just like almost 100% of alleged “hate crimes.” That comment was judged to be hate speech and earned me three days in FB jail. At least I was right.
