Hate Hoax – Jussie Smollett Rehearsed Fake Hate Attack With Two Pretend Attackers…

Chicago investigators continue to share stunning evidence about the hate-crime hoax carried out by actor Jussie Smollett with the assistance of two brothers.  It appears the trio even rehearsed the attack.

CHICAGO (CBS) — Jussie Smollett paid two brothers to stage an attack against him, directed them to buy items used in the alleged assault and actually rehearsed it with them, sources say. (read more)

      Even in this CBS Chicago newscast video, note they didn’t mention “MAGA country” once. All the other sordid details of the false allegation were listed…but not the one which points to the motive, which was to harm Trump-supporters.

          no damage to the sammich – he was still holding it

          that’s what does ring true because I think the average person would fight like hell with BOTH hands if someone is trying to put a rope around your neck!

        Note the news head said “rehearsed the attack” not rehearsed a FAKE attack claim.

        THERE WAS NO ATTACK, yet the news writer doesn’t make that clear. The claim it was a “staged attack” is STILL a form of gaslighting in effort to reduce the actual impression of an attack verse the fact this was nothing but a TOTAL HOAX.

          Actually, there WAS an “attack”.
          From TMZ, yesterday:
          “Cops were extremely suspicious when Jussie took them out to the area where he said he was attacked and pointed to an obscure camera saying how happy he was that the attack was on video. Turns out the camera was pointing in the wrong direction. Cops thought it was weird he knew the location of that camera.”
          Ha, so, they choreographed and rehearsed their ‘fight scene’ – had to get it on the first and only ‘take’. Then Jussie and the brothers, wearing ski masks, gloves, a red MAGA-like cap (no actual logo), dramatically acted out the assault, complete with noose and yelling “This is MAGA country”. Jussie had scouted the location and he was sure the whole performance would be on video. The film would “do the talking”. But he accidentally chose a spot that was NOT on camera. Without the video “proof”, the over-the-top details sounded hoaxy, etc.

    Theory: hoax crime was staged to promote passage of S.3178 – Justice for Victims of Lynching Act of 2018, backed by Cory Booker and Kamala Harris. Both Harris and Booker used almost identical language in decrying alleged Smollett attack. S.3178 may in fact be a way to criminalize free speech on the internet. Am asking that legal minds look closely at this bill, consider its placement in time with staged lynching hoax attack, and analyze what the true purpose of the bill is. S. 3178 has already passed the Senate and will probably pass in the House, but it doesn’t seem to be about lynching per se but criminalizing speech on the internet.

      You are absolutely correct. It is the greatest usurpation of State powers using the Interstate Commerce Clause since Heart of Atlanta v US and Katzenbach v McClung December 1964. It has nothing to do with lynching, it makes simple assault a federal felony with an automatic 10 year sentence.

    One of the first things the media does when establishing victim credentials is to always refer to them by their first name. It makes for a “friendly” connection.
    Just like bringing out that Sunday School picture before the guns and drugs pictures get out.
    If the press wants to hammer someone, they use either last name or when they really want to smack someone, it’s First, Middle, Last.
    It was always Trevon who was going to get Skittles and Laquan who was dindunothin.
    Most of the posters here are referring to this guy by his first name like they’re old school buds or something.

    I think that faking a hate crime should be treated as hate crime designed to create more racial animus and division – precisely the rationale behind the original hate crime laws.

    As the Supreme Court has stated in Wisc v Mitchell:
    “this conduct is thought to inflict greater individual and societal harm … bias motivated crimes are more likely to provoke retaliatory crimes, … and incite community unrest. … As Blackstone said long ago, ‘it is but reasonable that among crimes of different natures those should be most severely punished, which are the most destructive of the public safety and happiness.'”

      The two Nigerians are witnesses to the staging of the lawful attack. Only Smollett committed an offense of making a false complaint.

      Put it this way, if Smollett didn’t make a complaint then no offenses were committed.

        I think every crime should have a fixed penalty, i.e. not 5 to 10, but either 5 or 10, but not a range. With the exception of perjury. The penalty for perjury should be based upon what the person or persons on trial for could receive – regardless of whether they are found guilty or not guilty. So if a person commits perjury in a trial where the penalty is 10 years the penalty for perjury is 10 years, 5 years for the crime 5 years for perjury. In a case like this lying is no different than perjury.

    Last year, Duran honored porn star Stormy Daniels (née Stephanie Clifford) with the key to the city and declared “Stormy Daniels Day” for her role in public criticism of President Donald Trump.

    But as Breitbart News reported, Duran had faced sexual controversies of his own under his administration, with the city shelling out $500,000 in a settlement with a former mayoral aide on his behalf in 2016.

    He deliberately stopped his car, got out, reached in the back seat for a baseball bat, and started walking across the street toward me.

    Only after I stood up to my 6′ and 235 (ahem, muscular) lb did he do a U-turn.
    Cops never did anything even though I had a license plate, because he “didn’t get close enough”.

    Like most other Trump supporters I’m glad this inculpatory evidence is being released to the public. The great MAGA Trump movement had been falsely and widely defamed.

    However, “The Constitution’s Sixth Amendment gives criminal defendants the right to a trial by a fair judge and an impartial jury.” I could not honestly claim impartiality now but it has been argued that pretrial release of evidence does not have a significant effect on a jury’s decision. Will an Obama appointed judge in Illinois conveniently dismiss any charges due to overwhelming pretrial publicity or not? None of Trump’s indicted associates were afforded this privilege after endless news releases of their alleged guilt but will this be just another political double standard under the U.S. Justice system. Smollett is still a darling of the left no matter what.

    Okay, so per above comment regarding the ” Theory: hoax crime was staged to promote passage of S.3178 – Justice for Victims of Lynching Act of 2018, backed by Cory Booker and Kamala Harris”

    I can’t be the only person thinking that it is a bit ominous for Mr. Smollett that he had been written out of Empire. If I were him, I’d be wondering if they wanted to make a bigger statement than just beating him up. Maybe he did not show up at the appointed time and place it was supposed to go down?

    Per Zippy’s comment on a prior thread, “One of the brothers, both brothers being gay and anti-Trump according to people involved with Empire, called Smollett just before the attack from the general area of the attack. This is known because the one who called gave the cops his phone. This also explains why Smollett didn’t want to give the cops his phone.

    Now we have the Smollett fraud. Part of the fraud is Smollett with a rope around his neck. Booker and Harris both condemn the attack and the “modern day lynching”. Harris and Booker push for anti-lynching legislation. Sorely needed, there are so many lynchings /s. Pics of Smollett and Dem “star” politicians, including Harris, together all all over Twitter.

    All for the purpose of the “Trump and his supporters are all racist” narrative.

      I think that woman was hooked into the plot. A fake witness. Look back at her statement as reported by TMZ. She described the guy as a redneck white wearing hunting socks! She said the guy had scruff on his face, not that he was wearing a face mask. If Ola or the other guy didn’t have the face mask on she would have clearly seen that he wasn’t white at all.

      A woman who lives in Jussie Smollett’s apartment building told cops she saw a suspicious man — whom she said looked like a “redneck” — loitering just outside the entrance to the building an hour and a half before Jussie says he was attacked. The woman — who asked us not to use her name — tells TMZ, she walked out of the building at 12:30 AM Tuesday to take her dogs out and saw the man near the door, pacing between the parking garage and entrance, looking agitated and smoking a cigarette. She says, “He looked out of place.” He was a white man with scruff on his face wearing a blue winter beanie, a blue zip-up sweatshirt with a hood and blue jeans that were too short, exposing “thick, grey hunting socks” with camel-colored dress shoes.

      Then she was up again at 4am to go workout (after 3 1/2 hours of sleep?), and she went to the lobby. Every building I’ve been in does not require you to go to the lobby to get to the gym, unless these apartments use the Loews hotel gym. In any case, I think she was a co-conspirator intended to witness the attack and nobody let her know the time of it was delayed.

        It looks to me like the apartments have their own gym. On the amenities page it says renters have “Direct access to Loews Hotel, Spa and Rooftop Restaurant & Lounge”, but for gym info it says merely “24 Hour Fitness Gym”. The photo supplied of the gym for the apartments does not match the photos supplied for the Loews Hotel. And when I think about it, people paying that much for apartments (they’re expensive) wouldn’t want to be working out with transient hotel guests.

        I think that woman went to the lobby to find out what happened with the stunt she was supposed witness.

          It could be. The building’s tenants are almost all either Black or LBGTQ people.
          In any case, the prosecutor will have fun trying the case. It will probably be the easiest case of his/her career.

              This is one hell of an expensive hoax for Jussie. He now hired a Crisis Management Firm and is still refusing to meet with the police.

                  Grand Jury is involved, that helps. Also Chicago Police are not interested in having a debacle on their hands. Jussie made this a high profile (fake) incident and now he’s going to pay for it. Not only wasting CPD and FBI resources but the hoax probably also involved a fake threatening letter with white powder in it.

                  Ugh. The week before Jussie’s hoax, in Chicago, a young White adult male was jailed for three years for a fake hate crime (hoax).
                  If the prosecutor doesn’t follow through with a similar sentence, calls of racism would be fully justified.

      I was out running errands a bit ago. Chicago radio talking about no real changes, except Smollett not meeting with police today (story says that too). I hope CPD makes the meeting happen soon one way or another, and not allow Smollett to brush them off, make other plans, or hang out with his hollywood friends.

    I would not be surprised if there was a script out there somewhere on how to stage a false MAGA white supremacist style act.

    Remember, under The Kenyan the FBI and ther military iss told that the #1 enemy of the USA are white supremacists. Gorka said so the morning after the Pulse Nightclub attack. Not that white supremacists are the enemy, but that that is what The Kenyan’s people are being sold and are trying to SELL.

    The Kenyan and his ilk have stoked this fire of rage. My guess is that there will be many more to come. The script may change here and there, but it will emerge again.

    He is just following orders.

    It appears there may have been more than one fake hate crime involved.

    “Smollett received a letter containing a white powder Jan. 22. The letter was mailed to Chicago’s Cinespace Studios, where the show “Empire” is filmed. The letter prompted a HAZMAT response. CPD says the “white substance” was later determined to be aspirin.

    The note was crafted with letters apparently cut out from magazines to form words. The pieced-together message contained racial and homophobic threats directed at Smollett. A magazine is one of the pieces of evidence retrieved from the brother’s home last week during a search conducted by CPD. Investigators also recovered a book of stamps.”

    I list the holes in the story I’ve come up with:

    When they spoke to him during the “attack” their Nigerian accents led him to believe they were Caucasian?

    He didn’t recognize the voices of the masked guys who he personally knew with one being his personal trainer?

    He told police he would definitely file charges against the perps, but decided not to when the Nigerian brothers were caught (oops!) because “he felt sorry for them”?

    One of the brothers gave the cops his phone and they found that he had made a call to Jussie just prior to the “attack” from the same area as the “attack,” something which could be determined by what cell tower handled the call. This also explains why Smollett wouldn’t give the cops his phone.

    Also, there are MAGA supporters IN CHICAGO who wander around the financial district at 2AM in -20F temps with clothesline proved to have been purchased by the Nigerian brothers and bleach?

    Also, note how the extreme low temperatures conveniently allowed the excuse of wearing full face masks and gloves so no security cameras could easily ID them as black men instead of Caucasians.

    Finally, the day after the “attack” the brothers just happen to get on a plane to Nigeria.

    Smollett threat letter called “enormous mistake”; Purported attack location identified; Federal charges “certain”

    Jussie Smollett | Good Morning America
    On Friday, Jan. 18th, a letter was dropped into a mailbox in Chicago’s southwest suburbs.

    The envelope was addressed in childlike scrawl to Empire TV star Jussie Smollett at Cinespace Studios, a West Side production facility that the Fox program calls home. “MAGA”—the acronym for Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign slogan “Make America Great Again”—was sloppily written in the return address space.

    Four days later and about eleven miles away, a mailman delivered the letter, which found its way to Smollett.

    Something about the envelope must have raised Smollett’s concerns. He would later tell police that he and Empire’s executive producer donned gloves before they opened it and exposed themselves to a threat letter covered in white powder.

      It took 4 days for the letter to go from one part of Chicago to another? lol

      I love how Jussie stages it so that both he and a producer, wearing gloves (because Jussie knew there was powder inside), open the freakily-addressed envelope. Did Jussie let out a fake scream then too, just like he did when he saw the rope around his neck?

      This guy is so seriously mentally ill I think he needs long term treatment.

    Jussie Smollett’s “Empire” screen time is getting slashed in the wake of a growing sentiment that he staged the so-called “attack.”

    Production sources tell TMZ … Jussie was supposed to have 9 scenes and a big musical number in the second to the last episode — which is being shot now — but, 5 of his scenes have been cut, and his musical number has been 86’d.

    As for the remaining 4 scenes … we’re told he’s no longer the focus. The scene features an ensemble, meaning he’s flanked by a number of cast members.

    With his duties pared down, Jussie will be spending way less time on set. Instead of working every day this week, we’re told Jussie’s working Friday and possibly Thursday, and he won’t be rehearsing.

    According to a new report by CBS Chicago’s Charlie De Mar, Jussie Smollet’s management just hired Anne Kavanaugh who specializes in crisis management along with other services. […] The news that Smollett’s team hired Anne Kavanagh isn’t helping Smollet’s case in the court of public opinion. Many people think it is nothing more than a PR stunt as his credibility has plummetted. One user commented, “I think most people’s goal in life is to NOT need to hire a crisis management team!” Anohter poster didn’t say they felt bad for Jussie, but rather their sympathy was with Kavanagh due to the serious backlash this case has proved to get. “I feel sorry for her, this is a PR nightmare.”
