Jussie Smollett’s neighbors
cast doubt on his attack story

New York Post, by Gabrielle Fonrouge

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 2/11/2019 10:46:14 AM

Chicago—Nearly two weeks after “Empire” star Jussie Smollett claimed he was the victim of a racist, homophobic attack, cops have yet to identify any suspects—and some people in his tony Chicago neighborhood are growing skeptical. “I don’t believe it happened the way he said it did,” said Agin Muhammad, who lives in the same swank high-rise near the Navy Pier as Smollett. “I’ve been in this neighborhood five years. I don’t believe it, not around here … Half the people are gay and the other half are black.” (Snip) “It’s a lie, because Chicago is the most liberal city

Comments:
I doubt this clown will suffer any consequences for his fake hate crime. To the contrary, he´s a hero to the left, a black man and a gay man who bravely weathered an assault from Trump supporters, the same way all leftists suffer daily under The Donald´s reign of terror.

The most preposterous aspect of this tale is that MAGA hat wearing Trump supporters would watch, let alone know about, the show Jussie is on.

Ah, but the intrepid post tracked Jussie’s path from the Subway shop to the underpass near the Sheraton where he said was attacked and….drum roll…found a hot sauce bottle that contained fluid that smelled like….bleach. (How many weeks has it been since the alleged incident? Is it really likely that a bottle of something that smelled like bleach would have stayed there that long? Didn’t police go to that place immediately? Would they not have found such a bottle?)

Will they now nail Jussie for planting evidence?

(For those questioning his name, have you not noticed black people having unusual names? How about short for Justin? Nickname he adopted as performer? Does it really matter?)

The alleged victim won´t give police his mobile telephone.

The telephone would be useful in that calls could be analyzed to help determine the alleged victim´s location when the alleged attack occurred. Knowing the alleged victim´s location would help identify a camera that might have caught the alleged incident on video. It might help pinpoint an area in which to question residents about what they might have heard or seen and so forth.

So is Jussie Smollett really serious about solving this alleged crime? Saying he cannot live without his telephone for a few hours is ludicrous.

Everyone except the ultra hard core SJWs knew this was a fraud from day 1. The police know, but have no incentive to expose the truth or make an arrest for a false report because they are afraid of how they will be portrayed.

The day after the election these stories of hateful Trump supporters started rolling in. Assault, vandalism, threats, all coming from Trump supporters and aimed at poor defenseless leftists and minority types.

I would truly like to see how many of these reports actually turned out to be anywhere near true. And how many were later determined to be complete hoaxes perpetrated by the "offended" individual.

Anybody know of any such source?

I am not surprised by this at all. I have found that most Trump haters will lie about anything to try and make him look bad. Liberal progressive lefties cannot stand having a President that they can´t bully or control. To bad guys.

I never heard of Jussie Smollet but then again I have never watched the show Empire. When this story first broke I didn´t have any reason not to believe it but as the investigation proceeds with absolutely no evidence to back it up it looks like it is just another attempt to attack people who support Trump. Right out of the Al Sharpton playbook.

Perhaps saddest of all is that if there was a wackjob with a MAGA hat who committed an unacceptable offense the left would be successful in portraying that as representative of each and every one of us.

Yet we can accept that James Hodgkinson is a one off nut, not your garden variety idiot Bernie supporter.

Just a bit of speculation, but...there are male homosexuals who go looking for quick sex with strangers, on an urgent basis.
(My department secretary, a woman, told me about certain restrooms in our building that male homosexuals agreed should be quick, anonymous sex locations, warned me not to go there. In addition, a relative was a trooper who was assigned to certain areas along an interstate that male homosexuals used to solicit and perform. He would arrest them when they propositioned him.)
I have to wonder if this lad solicited the wrong person?? And got puched for that reason??

I think you’re right on target, #14.

However, even if little Jussie fesses up, most on the left will still believe that this “incident” happened. Just like they still believe that Sarah Palin said that she could see Russia from her house.

They never let facts get in the way of their ideology and agenda.

We, right here in Lucianne World, knew it was a hoax from day one! The police knew it the second they heard this nuts story. but, dutifully, and to their credit, they gave him the benefit of the doubt and really investigated it. To his horror, they did not let it drop so he could run to the media whores and get all their Social justice Warrior accolades they would paint his sorry racist butt with.

Now, the cops and the neighbors and the video cameras show him to be the liar he is. But, now, the cops are caught in the middle. the media whores stand ready to call anyone who pubically doubts this idiots little fairy tale a "Racist"!

I say, at this point, it will not matter. Call him out on it and let the chips fall where they may. It is long past time to shame these race baiters back to the last century where they belong, anyway.

The incident was a politically, publicity and racial based hoax.

That night it was about 15 degrees in Chicago, now think, just what Trump supporters wearing MAGA hats would be wandering around the streets in such extreme weather conditions waiting for Jussie Smollett to, on the spur of the moment, decide to walk from his apartment to a subway Restaurant to get a sandwich so that they could mug him and tie a rope around his neck. Not even low information, but street smart, Chicago ghetto Black folks would believe that story.

Chances are you could count on your fingers the number of Trump MAGA hat wearers across the nation who even know who Smollett is, or could recognize him if they saw him on the street, obviously bundled up from the cold. Give us a break!

I think the police have a duty to the public to pursue these dangerous criminals who attacked poor Jussie. I know, he´s brave and didn´t want protection, or even to give up his cell phone, and he didn´t want the police to use their bodycams during the initial interview, BUT, that said, criminals such as those who attacked him who remain at large and constitute a public danger. Come on Chicago PD, get those phone records to stop future attacks against minority gay tv stars patronizing Subways at 2am on a cold winter night!

Well, I know Russians hacked my tape measure because of that exactly one inch too short rough-in window opening I framed in for Mrs G2P´ craft room. So, right wing, white guys in 15 degree weather, waiting for Jussie to go to Subway at 2 a.m. in the most liberal part of Chicago sporting wool full faced ski masks AND MAGA hats on top toting a hot sauce sized bottle of bleach could have attacked Jussie either on his way to Subway or on his way back from Subway, and of course let him keep his sandwich and salad because the only video known filmed him walking into his building elevator with full Subway bag in his hand, could have happened.

Putin and the Russians hacked my tape measure man, and I believe the victim.

This wasn’t what Duke or Knicks fans wanted to see. Zion Williamson suffered a right knee injury 33 seconds into Wednesday’s game against rival North Carolina at Cameron Indoor Stadium in Durham, N.C. Williamson grabbed his knee in pain after his Nike sneaker tore apart as he slipped and fell to the floor and had to head to the bench. Williamson, widely expected to be the first pick in the NBA draft, was soon taken to the locker room for observation.

Archaeologists have discovered the long-lost prehistoric tools employed to quarry the original standing stones used in the construction of the earliest stone-built phase of Stonehenge. Excavations in an ancient quarry in southwest Wales have so far yielded 15 sandstone wedges used to break off large numbers of natural stone columns from the quarry’s bedrock. They have also discovered V-shaped slots in two columns that had been earmarked for use—but never removed. (Snip) All the tools appear to have been made elsewhere from stones that could not have been found in or around the quarry itself.

A scientist who raised early alarms about climate change and popularized the term "global warming" has died. Wallace Smith Broecker was 87. The longtime Columbia University professor and researcher died Monday at a New York City hospital, according to a spokesman for the university´s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. Kevin Krajick said Broecker had been ailing in recent months. Broecker brought "global warming" into common use with a 1975 article that correctly predicted rising carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere would lead to pronounced warming.

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan says Rep. Ilhan Omar merely spoke the truth and should not have apologized for saying Israel and the U.S. Jewish lobby use money to control U.S. politicians. Indeed, the black-nationalist anti-Semite chided the Minnesota Democrat who apologized last week for playing into anti-Semitic tropes about supposed Jewish control of banking and finance. Mr. Farrakhan praised “Miss Omar from Somalia. She started talking about the Benjamins and they are trying to make her apologize.

School girls are too afraid to use unisex toilets over fears of ´period shaming´ from boys and ´sexual harassment´, campaigners warn. A growing number of schools are ditching separate sex loos claiming they are not inclusive to transgender children and are a breeding ground for bullying. But some girls are avoiding going to the toilet during school hours because of cruel taunts from boys and a lack of privacy, according to the Daily Express. And some girls even avoid drinking water so that they will not have to use the toilet. A parent of a secondary school girl

Empire star Jussie Smollett paid two men to stage an assault against him which he later claimed was an attack motivated by racism and homophobia, investigators in Chicago now believe. The two men involved in the alleged hoax are now fully cooperating with law enforcement, CNN is reporting on Saturday. On January 29, two men ´yelled out racial and homophobic slurs´ while attacking Smollett, the actor told police. One of the assailants tied a rope around his neck and poured an unknown chemical substance on him, Smollett claimed at the time. That narrative, however, is now under serious scrutiny by investigators.

Rallying on the steps of City Hall, elected leaders and advocates are pushing for all immigrants regardless of legal status to be granted the privilege. “The one thing we are hearing from our immigrant communities from Brentwood to Buffalo is drivers licenses are the single biggest issue,” said Steven Choi with the New York Immigration Coalition.

The U.S. Transportation Department announced Tuesday it would attempt to cancel $929 million in federal grant funds for California’s troubled high-speed rail project. The move marks an escalation in the war between President Trump and California in the days since Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a rethinking of the bullet train project after years of cost overruns. The Transportation Department also announced it was “actively exploring every legal option to seek the return from California of $2.5 billion in federal funds.” It’s unclear whether it has the legal authority to do so, and California would probably oppose such a move.In a

The “we reported the Jussie Smollett case responsibly” contention has been blasted to smithereens. Twitter accounts and headlines in the Washington Post, the New York Times, and the Los Angeles Times reported as fact Jussie Smollett’s wildly implausible allegations, and many other journalists did so as well, not to mention the innumerable activists and celebrities who piled on. So, a question for all of the above. Why did you believe Jussie Smollett? Let’s try to catalogue the red flags. Had you ever heard of Jussie Smollett before the alleged January 29 attack?

For Sens. Kamala D. Harris and Cory A. Booker, Democratic presidential candidates who were promoting an anti-lynching bill, the “attack” on actor Jussie Smollett in Chicago looked like a horrible yet opportune talking point. Instead, the apparent hoax is turning out to be a warning to 2020 Democratic candidates about singling out people for martyrdom, including the woman who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh of sexual assault and the drum-banging American Indian who confronted Catholic high school students on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. In the rush to speak too soon about the Smollett
