January 29, 2019 Jussie Smollett - Wikipedia  On  Smollett was attacked in Chicago in what was being investigated as a hate crime.[25][26] Smollett said to police that he was attacked after leaving a fast-food restaurant by two men in ski masks, who made racial and homophobic slurs.[25] According to a statement released by the Chicago Police Department, the two suspects then "poured an unknown liquid" on Smollett and put a noose around his neck.[27] Smollett said that he fought off the attackers; he then admitted himself to Northwestern Memorial Hospital from which he was released "in good condition" later that morning.[25][28] After TMZ claimed that Smollett had told police that the attackers were white and had referenced Donald Trump's Make America Great Again slogan,[29][30] claims that were repeated on social media, police representatives initially dismissed both claims,[30][31] before subsequently confirming that Smollett had described that the attackers had shouted "MAGA country" during the assault.[26] While TMZ wrote that the liquid poured on Smollett was bleach, it was mainly described in news reports as "an unknown chemical substance",[30] though CBS News reported that police officers described smelling bleach on his clothes.[32] In the day following the attack, figures from the television industry and campaigners condemned the attack on social media.[26]

  • American Mirror  ‘Empire’ actor who claims ‘MAGA’ attack denounced Trump ‘and his white hooded cohorts’ just 10 days ago JANUARY 30, 2019 BY KYLE OLSON The story of the alleged racist, homophobic attack on “Empire” star Jussie Smollett is premised on the fact that a racist homophobe watches “Empire.”The site also claims the assailants said, “This is MAGA country.” Just 10 days ago, Smollett let the world know what he thinks of Trump and his supporters, which may cast doubt on his claims he was targeted by them. Smollett wrote, “45 and all his white hooded cohorts are a national disgrace. And if you support them…so are you. Clowns.” we must accept the premise that a racist homophobe watches “Empire,” would be out on a freezing Chicago street at 2am with rope and bleach, would recognize the actor, and then be so motivated to actually act on the hatred.  And attack an actor, by the way, who has a documented hatred for Trump supporters. You decide if his story is plausible.

alleged hate crime against black, gay Empire actor Jussie Smollett by Trumpsupporters, that he said happened at 2 AM Tuesday morning.

The manure-spreaders of media sensationalism  by Michelle Malkin  Here we go again. If you think the manure-spreaders of sensationalism who masquerade as ethical practitioners of journalism learned anything from last week’s MAGA-bashing Covington Catholic High School hoax, I have three words for you:  oddities and discrepancies abound:

TMZ quoted one of the “MAGA country” attackers who allegedly hurled epithets at Smollett: “Aren’t you that f***ot ‘Empire’ n*****?”

Question: How many racist, homophobic menaces wander around the upscale Streeterville neighborhood of liberal Chicago at 2 a.m. carrying rope and bleach, yelling about “MAGA country?”

Question: How many racist, homophobic menaces have ever heard of “Empire,” could recognize Jussie Smollett, or know or care anything about his sexuality?

Despite TMZ’s claim that Smollett had the “hell beat outta him” and attackers “broke his ribs” plus subjected him to a chemical attack, an ambulance was not called and he instead “self-transported” to the hospital. CWB Chicago, a local public safety watchdog site, reported on police dispatch records documenting that Smollett’s friend “Frank” refused EMS services for Smollett; no mention of bleach was made; “no or minor injury” was observed; and “officers never sent a ‘flash; message with offender descriptions to field units.”

Classic manufactured “news:” Report on an uncorroborated hate crime. Plant unverified details. Repeatedly blame white male Trump supporters. Stoke Hollywood outrage. Enlist the Godfather of Hate Crime Hoaxes to call on the president to denounce phantom attackers. Reap clicks and publicity. Indict all skeptics as racists and haters. Repeat.

Smears first. Facts later. How much deader can American journalism get?

What is “the media” nowadays?

Various articles are written and published in very short order, often with individuals or friends breaking the story themselves in social media platforms. These early rush-to-print articles then get circulated in self-curated echo chambers with their associated socio-political bents.

There is no establishment media that vets such stories anymore. Or, they are actually behind the curve in a lot of ways. They’ll often rely on alternative outlets or “independent journalists” that will do a bit of digging, and then when enough information is brought to light or amassed and can’t be ignored, the major outlets do a little bit of modifying of the original stories.

This is the modern cycle.

So, in this case, we might highlight what is being claimed in this attack and also mention recent claims of harassment, and look at the larger context.

In this latest attack account, the following elements are being described by TMZ:

Summary -

Attacked at around 2AM downtown Chicago, by two white men, wearing ski masks. They not only recognized him as an African American, but as the homosexual that is on the show Empire. They brought a rope along for their attack and put this around his neck, and poured bleach on him. And as they ran off, they yelled “This is MAGA country.”

Well, this story then gets picked up by further smaller media outlets or blogs, and various details get added to it. Some stories describe the assailants as wearing masks and MAGA hats.
Various stories get published on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media platforms, and outrage over this racist, homophobic attack ensues. “This is Trump’s America,” after all. The few posts that dare to offer a skeptical view of the story are attacked as being motivated by racism, bigotry or at the very least ignorance. Don’t you know about American history? Emmett Till ring any bells, you racist?
However, the Chicago police issued this statement, highlighting that some of these elements being described in media stories were not reported to them directly.
Okay, that’s the background with the attack story. So, now we have to bring up the recent hate mail that this fellow apparently received.
This supposedly sent out just a few days ago:
So, here we have racist and homophobic bigots harassing Mr. Smollett, sending this to his work address (Fox Studio, Chicago).
You’ll notice they took the time to cut out letters like we might see in ransom letters, in Hollywood films. That’s to prevent the source of writing to be traced back to the culprits - you know the handwriting experts or picking up details about the font or print of a typewriter or printer. Yet, they also though it would be a good idea to use red marker and sloppily write the address, and provide a drawing that a kid would do.
Yeah, a lot of planning and thought went into this!
Okay, so what are the chances that Mr. Smollett gets such a hate letter, and just randomly gets attack on the street a few days later?
Or, was it all planned? Was it part of a coordinated attack?
These White racists were likely targeting him, right?
In any event, they would have had to do a stakeout, in the dead center of downtown Chicago waiting for him to return from his recent trip.
They were laying in wait for him with their ski masks and perhaps MAGA hats. They’d obviously need ski masks because it was only about -12 degrees at that time of night, with decent winds at 12 mph. It was cold! Also, two White dudes working together shows planning, and the fact that it was early Tuesday night shows they were either taking off work or were unemployed. And of course, these two White racists had their rope and their bleach, ready to attack Mr. Smollett. No further weapons were used? Why not? Was it just to send a message? Then why send the note with the cut-out letters threatening to kill? Was they just a psychological attack?
Real question: How many avowed violent White racists watch Empire anyway?
The point is, there is something very fishy about this story. And our modern media landscape and social media echo chamber is not really into critical thinking and corroboration of facts. And social media outright is stoked by whatever narrative people like to latch onto. Whether it’s “racism is everywhere” or “anti-SJW” narratives. Various sides think their perceived political opponents are insane.
That’s is the modern social media landscape.
By the way, there is only one Subway open 24hrs near Mr. Smollett’s condo, and there aren’t then many ways to get to it. And there are some pretty high-end buildings and businesses along this path, so there will likely be a lot of cameras capturing the action on the street.
