If you follow any conservative news outlet, you probably learned about the fate of actor Jussie Smollett. He was convicted of 5 out of 6 charges connected to his hate crime allegations from nearly 3 years ago.
Although his lawyers are seeking an appeal, the actor could face years in jail. Naturally, the MSM has ignored the trial after hyping up Smollett’s claims years ago.
From Fox News:
Smollett was found guilty on five of the six charges against him stemming from 2019 allegations that he was the victim of a racist and homophobic hate crime, which was later revealed he orchestrated…
Smollett’s conviction was completely ignored by “ReidOut” host Joy Reid, “All In” host Chris Hayes, “The Rachel Maddow Show” host Rachel Maddow,” “The Last Word” host Lawrence O’Donnell as well as “11th Hour” anchor Brian Williams.
After the verdict, many people looked back on when this dustup first happened. Plenty of figures in Hollywood rushed to Smollett’s defense before all the facts were in. In fact, two notable people—now in the White House—were quick to condemn and demand justice. Now, people are demanding answers from them.
From Fox News:
Will Cain, co-host of “Fox & Friends Weekend,” said Thursday that President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris acted as “accomplices to a race hoax” by amplifying the Jussie Smollett “melodrama” to score political points.
People are looking back on what celebrities said in defense of Jussie Smollett after he claimed he was a victim of a hate crime. Both Biden and Harris openly defended the man, who apparently orchestrated the event and filed false statements to law enforcement. The Democrats used the event to push their political agenda, before even learning the facts.
But when evidence emerged that Smollett lied about the event and was even facing charges himself, nobody on the left retracted their statements. They used the original claims to attack conservatives and Trump supporters. They never apologized or called out Smollett for his dishonesty.
Now, some are accusing Biden and Harris of being “accomplices” to this deception. Others are asking why they and other celebrities, refuse to speak out against the con Smollett appeared to pull on the country.
Much is said by the left about how divided America appears to be. They are especially upset about the racial split between Americans. Yet they always seem to be critical of problems coming from the right, but not on their own side. Shouldn’t they be just as upset with what Smollett did?
Many civil rights activists are calling Smollett’s actions as a major setback to their cause, but these politicians act as if their words and support have no consequences.
And what about the media? They spent a ton of time talking about Smollett after he made his claims. But they refuse to report the outcome of his trial? Isn’t this just as important as any other part of the story?
- Jussie Smollett was found guilty of 5 out of 6 charges in his hoax.
- Critics are slamming Biden and Harris over their comments supporting Smollett.
- MSM outlets ignored last night’s verdict, refusing to even report it.
