Tucker sounds off on new Jussie Smollett developments

Tucker sounds off on new Jussie Smollett developments
almost 3,000 people were shot in the city of Chicago last year men women small children sometimes alone sometimes in groups many hundreds of them died not a single one of those people received anything like the attention the media have lavished on a relatively minor assault alleged by the television actor Jesse

Smollett

on the other hand none of Chicago's 3,000 shootings was even half as useful as small that story his story had everything the national media long ago gave up the pretense of
tucker sounds off on new jussie smollett developments
gathering news journalism is now explicitly a political job the point of it is to enforce cultural orthodoxies and punish enemies Jesse

Smollett

was the perfect vehicle for both of those things journalists pretended to be horrified as they were accounted what he said happened to him but secretly they were thrilled there are many indications of a hate crime here they are looking for two suspects who were apparently wearing make America great again hats though that has not yet been officially
confirmed we don't know what happened to Jesse but what we do know is that racism is alive and well in this country there is real evidence of people who have done these crimes who cite that the president has inspired them the fact that it reportedly said this is my country adds to sort of the the atmosphere of Menace that African Americans in particular and people of color in general have felt since the the advent of the Trump administration and the media has really cast so much doubt on his
story which I find so personally offensive that a gay black man is targeted and then suddenly he becomes the victim of people's disbelief he said his attackers hurled racial and homophobic slurs at him this is America in 2019 this is America in 2019 to the national media sports story was the perfect metaphor for the Trump era it was also pretty clearly a total crock some let's account began to fall apart within hours after a series of leaks from the obviously skeptical Chicago Police
Department some lets handlers paired him with a network anchor they could rely on to launder the hoax in the ends when it set for 16 and a half minutes with Robin Roberts of Good Morning America Robert surely knew there was ample evidence that SWAT was lying but she decided to ignore that instead Roberts colluded with him she nodded empathetically as snow at wept on camera she has no significant follow-up questions the two parted like old friends both

Smollett

and Roberts turned out to be
talented actors check out their performance on YouTube before it's scrubbed you'll never watch ABC news again virtually every word they utter is dishonest so what began by explaining that the men who attacked him were not muggers they didn't want money they assaulted him purely because his of his identity as a gay black Democrat people like Jesse

Smollett

aren't allowed to live in Donald Trump's America that was the message of the attackers this is magnet country they
screamed they were referring of course to Chicago a city where 88% of the population voted against Donald Trump as a crime story it didn't make a lot of sense and when skeptics on the Internet raised basic questions about his story

Smollett

attacked them as racist if I had said it was a Muslim or Mexican or someone black I feel like the doubters would have supported me a lot much more a lot more and that says a lot about the place that we are in our country right now the fact that we have
tucker sounds off on new jussie smollett developments
these fear Mongols these people that are trying to separate us and it's just not okay what she just heard is a near-perfect inversion of the truth as somewhat himself might have put it who exactly is the fear mongrel here who is dividing us and who exactly is the victim in all of this well small claims that he's the victim he tells us that he represents the most despised in unfashionable groups in America that's why bigots doubt his story the rest of us not as if this were true
because we're required to do that that's how dishonest our society has become everyone must lie all the time we know the rules we have no choice meanwhile our leaders immediately jump to the defense of this supposedly unpopular person before even hearing the evidence within hours at least two presidential candidates had described what happened to Sublette as they quote attempted lynching they assumed on faith that he must be telling the truth by definition they smeared anyone who doubted
him they called him a hero is this the treatment that marginalized people receive no hardly somewhat isn't powerless far from it his power lies in pretending that he has no power in fact Jesse

Smollett

and his promoters are the aggressors in this story they launched a calculated campaign of slander against an entire group of people who have far less wealth and far less cultural influence than they have if there is a bias crime here they committed it well he wouldn't be held accountable
for this don't bet on it in 1987 al Sharpton introduced the media to a young woman called Tawana Brawley Brawley had an awful story to tell she said she'd been viciously raped by a group of racist white men and left in a garbage bag she was covered in feces with racial slurs scrawled on her body the Brawley case dominated headlines across the country for more than a year and it bitterly divided New York City along ethnic lines people hated each other because of what Tawana Brawley said
happened to her but it was all a lie after conducting hundreds of interviews a grand jury declared the entire story fraudulent none of it actually happened Broly fled the state a judge ordered al Sharpton to pay for damages for accusing innocent men of rape that should have been the end of Al Sharpton's career yet just the opposite happened before he promoted to Juana brawly's lie Sharpton was best known as a small-time hustler an FBI informant from Brooklyn a man who'd once been
James Brown's road manager after he perpetuated the single most destructive racial hoax in memory al Sharpton got a promotion he became a world-famous civil rights leader he ran for president he became a policy advisor to Barack Obama according to visitor logs al Sharpton was invited to the Obama White House more than 80 times he got his own show on MSNBC which he still has Sharpton has never apologized or even acknowledged the harm he did to this country by the lying about Tawana Brawley no

one has forced him to the lesson of Al Sharpton was clear to everyone watching there are no penalties for hate hoaxes there are only rewards not surprisingly there have been many more since the incident escalated dramatically after the 2016 election the Muslim student in Louisiana who claims she was assaulted by racists in Trump hats the Muslim woman in San Diego who alleged the same an anti Asian attack in Minnesota an anti-gay attack in California racial attack in Delaware racist graffiti at
the Air Force Academy anti-semitic threats phoned in to Jewish community centers all fake those and many many more the much-hyped epidemic of hate crimes you've heard so much about essentially is made up the premise is absurd America is not a hateful country it's the most welcoming place on earth that's why even as our children learn from their teachers what a bigoted country this is millions continue to stream in from Africa and Latin America for a better life here it's why
we've welcomed more refugees and immigrants than any in history it's why we rescued a young Ilhan Omar from a refugee camp in Kenya we are kind people you see it in your own life how many violent racists do you know personally none probably that's because there aren't many in America the left has to invent them stoking race hatred ensures continued power for the Democratic Party divided populations are easier to manipulate and rule there would be no Democratic coalition without
racial animosity it's what holds their constituencies together that's the point of identity politics it's why there forever reopening the wound it's why Al Sharpton is still a revered figure among Democratic office holders but to the cost to the country has been high ask the kids from Covington Catholic for the crime of having unfashionable political beliefs in skin color a group of entirely innocent high school students came close to having their lives destroyed that didn't
happen by accident the national media did it they concocted a hate crime out of nothing the Twitter mob that demanded that those boys be expelled from school and marked for life their parents were threatened their classmates were harassed after two days video surfaced proving that none of it was real the mob moved on but what if exculpatory video had not emerged CNN panels would still be screaming for their blood you sometimes hear people wonder why the media never seemed to learn anything for
moments like these moments when they're exposed as corrupt and reckless and so the answer to that question is very simple it never occurs to them that they may be wrong or they might have something to learn the media see themselves as teachers not as students if you ever tried to put a sleepy four-year-old into a snow suit before school you know how journalists feel about the audience it's frustrating when children don't understand or obey but you've got to keep trying that's
how they feel listen is that oily media reporter kid from CNN explains that the Jesse

Smollett

hoax does not in any way reflect poorly on the people who promoted it perhaps the questioning was not tough enough on Good Morning America so ultimately this is not about the media or about politicians or activists or any of the people that might have been fooled it's about just me oh yeah it's about Jesse it it has nothing to do with any of us in the media who uncritically repeated his lies
night after night for political effect it's Jesse's problem now that's Nancy Pelosi's new position to by the way almost immediately after a

Smollett

story hit the news wires the Speaker of the House denounced the racist and homophobic attack quote may we all commit to ending this hate once and for all Pelosi has since deleted that tweet she has not apologized for her own role in perpetuating that hate Pelosi should apologize and not simply because it's good manners hate
hoaxes make ethnic groups fear and distrust each other that's a dangerous thing to do in a country that's becoming more diverse by the day the only way to prevent future Tawana Brawley x' and justice Millette is for the people who have promoted these lies to acknowledge what they've done ask for forgiveness for doing it and pledge to stop judging others on the basis of racial stereotypes we need to resolve the justice Millette story we can't just move on to the next thing and
act like it never happened which is their plan so let himself made that point actually at the end of his interview on Good Morning America watch I still want to believe with it everything that has happened that there's something called justice we've got that in common something called justice we all want to believe in that
