Jussie Smollett sentenced to 150 days in jail for fake hate crime hoax

Last year, American actor Jussie Smollett was found guilty by a jury of faking a hate crime against himself.

But many in the media had believed him. His tale was simply too good to be false.

Brainless Brooke Baldwin of CNN lamented that “And this is America in 2019“.

She was correct, but not quite in the way she meant it.

America in 2019 was a country whose ruling class was obsessed with race and identity politics, and desperate to find instances of racism in order to justify their obsessions.

That remained the case the following year, when a white kid who shot some violent rioters in Kenosha, Wisconsin in self-defence was immediately characterized as a white supremist, even though all three rioters he shot were white.

Jussie Smollett understood this and figured that being the victim of a violent racist attack would spectacularly boost his profile.

He was proven right. Soon after, America’s ruling class unconditionally accepted his tale, and used it to condemn the entire country.
