Jussie Smollett Found Guilty

Justice has been served, ladies and gentlemen…

Turns out Jussie Smollett was lying about getting lynched… but we all knew that already, didn’t we?

According to the Daily Wire:

After about nine hours of deliberation, a jury has found former “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett guilty on counts related to an apparent hate crime hoax he orchestrated in 2019.

Smollett was found guilty on five out of six counts of disorderly conduct. He has not yet been sentenced.

I knew this story was fishy when he sat for his interview with Robin Roberts on GMA. He looked a little too happy to be there. Here’s a refresher:

He lost me when he referred to Chicago as “MAGA Country.” Yeah… ok…

For such a talented actor, he didn’t sell this story very well…

You have to remember that all of this unfolded when the last election cycle was beginning, so the Democrats were all over this. That provided us with some tweets that have aged like fine wine. Check these babies out:

I hope people realize what’s going on here. Our politicians are desperate to make us believe that this country is full of racists that hate each other. Except… it’s not.

Politicians want you to believe that there are racists on every street corner. Anyone with two brain cells can see through that farce. The word “racist” has lost all meaning to the general public. It used to carry a certain amount of weight with it because it was something you never wanted to be (and something that few people actually were). Now, it doesn’t even register with people because it’s mixed in with our news headlines. Every. Single. Day.

It’s become a word we use for name-calling when we disagree with someone politically, and I’m really tired of hearing it.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m glad I live in a country where justice is served. The law didn’t treat Jussie Smollett differently based on the color of his skin. We should be celebrating that, right?
