Democrats and leftists want Jussie Smollett to just go away. Don’t let him. This case represents everything bad about the far-left: fake and real racism, fake hate crimes, Democrat corruption, elitism, rules that don’t apply to all, fake news.
Little Albion College in Michigan was up in arms last week after multiple pieces of vile racist graffiti were found on the campus. Protests ensued, racism and “white supremacy” were blamed. Oops. An investigation quickly found that a black male student was behind it, obviously trying to inflame racial tensions, as if that was needed. The university correctly suspended the student and removed him from campus, but embarrassed itself by issuing a pandering statement that racism has existed on campus and that it needs to do better. The correct response would have been to expel the student and issue a statement that fake hate crimes are every bit as reprehensible than real one. They need to talk to Charles Barkley. Of course the left-wing media breathlessly covered it until the truth came out. Then it magically disappeared.
America needs more strong, objective black voices like Jason Whitlock, Candace Owens, Shelby Foote, Larry Elders, ect, ect.
An additional comment, the left’s predominant philosophy is Marxism. Marxism is Godless, it is atheistic. So the left needs a religion to follow. For a time it was (and still is to an extent) LGBTQ, but that represents a small minority and much of it is blatantly anti-science. With the “T” it also runs into conflict with feminism. Then there is “climate change”. It was the hot button item for a while, the leftist religion – “capitalism is destroying the planet”. But the issue is highly open to real debate, somewhat abstract, off in the future and many simply don’t believe it, fortunately. It is hard to gin up a lot of anger and outrage and get the shock troops rioting in the streets over “climate change”. Ah, but racism, that is something that the left can exploit, create division and gin up anger and violence over, exactly what it wants. “Racism” is the new Marxist religion.
Well, that did not take long. About 48 hours. Far less time than it took to debunk the Jesse Smollett case. I guess we cannot call it a “hoax” as there is no evidence it was done on purpose, but almost as disturbing was the rush to judgement by media, NASCAR and a bunch of moronic celebrities (big surprise) as well as the opportunism shown by those involved, especially Bubba Wallace. Will there be apologies or at least some “we were wrongs”? Don’t hold your breath. Anyone with two brain cells realized form the get go it well could have been a hoax or a mistake. Turns out it was likely the latter. A handful of vile race-baiting leftists in media have stooped to write “yeah but” articles claiming the America is a horrible racist country with entrenched systemic racism. Repeat after me: the US is the most diverse country on the planet and actual racism is very rare. Yes it exists, but it is not around every corner. You want to see a racist country? Visit Japan or China. Parting comment: NASCAR is dying after an incredible run in the 1990’s and 2000’s. This will not help.
The only question is: did Michelle Obama ask her to do it, or was it implied?
