MAGA Racial Attack: Jussie Smollett’s Claim Falling Apart

Chicago is one of the worst cities in the world when it comes to violent crime. For the moment, let’s put aside stabbings, taking a lead pipe or baseball bat to someone, strangulation and child abuse.

The numbers of 2018 gun related incidents in ChIraq are as follows;

  • Shot & Killed: 495
  • Shot & Wounded: 2467
  • Total Shot: 2962
  • Total Homicides: 589

With all this violent crime, you’d think the Chicago PD has quite the full plate on just bringing bad guys from ’18 to justice.

Not really.

The supposed “hate crime” upon actor Jussie Smollett has the CPD trying their level best to find these MAGA hat wearing “rednecks.” Sadly for Smollett, he’s not only changing his timeline, he’s also withholding alleged evidence that would prove Smollett’s claim of an attack.




As reported by the Cox Media Group (via south-central Ohio’s Journal-News);

In a statement released Tuesday, police did not identify any of the people involved in the incident beyond saying it “involved a cast member of the television show ‘Empire.’” Smollett, 36, and a representative of 20th Century Fox Television and Fox Entertainment confirmed later to CNN that the incident had taken place.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi described the incident as a “possible racially-charged assault.” Smollett came out as gay in 2015 during an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” according to The Huffington Post. His sexuality might have played a role in the attack, according to entertainment news site TMZ.

Police told WBBM-TV that Smollett was walking on E. Lower Water Street when he was approached by two people who were yelling racial and homophobic slurs.

“The offenders then attacked the victim with their hands and poured an unknown chemical substance on the him,” WBBM-TV reported. “A rope was also wrapped around the victim’s neck.”

“Given the severity of the allegations, we are taking this investigation very seriously and treating it as a possible hate crime,” Guglielmi said. “Detectives are currently working to gather video, identify potential witnesses and establish an investigative timeline.”

Within hours, Cox Media posted an update;

So far, investigators “have not found anything to be able (to) put out a description” of the two suspects who Smollett said attacked him while he was walking down a city street early Tuesday morning, according to Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi.

Guglielmi said they have not found any evidence to help identify the perpetrators.
In a follow-up police interview Tuesday, Smollett told detectives that the attackers yelled “MAGA country,” according to WLS-TV, referring to President Donald Trump’s slogan “Make America Great Again.”

Smollett did not mention that in his initial police interview, authorities said.

Police also have a rope that was wrapped around Smollett’s neck during the attack, which they said will undergo testing.

Within less than 24-hours, another update was posted;

Police continued Wednesday to search for video that might show Smollett’s assailants.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said Tuesday night that authorities were combing through video footage, but that, “Thus far, no video of the alleged assailants or a vehicle has been discovered.”

The only relevant image police have found thus far was footage taken from a security camera in a Subway restaurant near the scene of the reported attack, according to CNN. In the image, Smollett appears to be standing alone, the news network reported.

Smollett told officers his assailants struck around 2 a.m. Tuesday as he was walking downtown near the Chicago River. He said two men yelled that he was in “MAGA country,” an apparent reference to President Donald Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make American Great Again,” and that they hit him in the face, poured an “unknown substance” on him and wrapped a rope around his neck, The Associated Press reported.

Guglielmi told the AP that Smollett still had a rope around his neck when officers first made contact with him after the attack.

Again, another update within hours on Jan 30;

Guglielmi told the AP that Smollett still had a rope around his neck when officers first made contact with him after the attack.

Yet another update still on the 30th;

Police are expected to release surveillance video of two “persons of interest” in the attack early Tuesday morning on actor Jussie Smollett, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Until now, detectives had said they were not able to release a description of Smollett’s attackers because they couldn’t find enough evidence after reviewing hundreds of hours of surveillance video from the surrounding area.

Prior to midnight, a third update;

Investigators “for the most part” can confirm the route Smollett took early Tuesday when he says he was attacked along a street in the Streeterville neighborhood after visiting a sandwich shop, Guglielmi said. However, there are gaps, and none of the footage shows an attack, he said, although the review is ongoing.

On Jan 31, the first update of the day included;

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told the AP detectives recovered additional video of Smollett in downtown Chicago before and after the reported attack. Guglielmi said officers were combing through footage from some of the hundreds of surveillance cameras in the area on Thursday but he said their efforts were hampered by the variety of private and public surveillance systems used in the area and their sometimes differing timestamps.

By mid-afternoon, another update;

Smollett’s family called Tuesday’s attack a “racial, homophobic hate crime” in a statement released Thursday to TMZ.

“We want people to understand these targeted hate crimes are happening to our sisters, brothers and our gender non-conforming siblings,” the statement said. “These are inhumane acts of domestic terrorism and they should be treated as such.”

Now late into the night on the 31st, things start to get really interesting;

Chicago police told NBC Thursday that Smollett has not turned over his phone to detectives.

“Both the victim and his manager have made statements to detectives that they were on the phone with each other. We were not able to independently verify that because they did not turn over cellphone records to police when asked,” police said in an email to the Chicago Tribune.

Detectives, who are investigating the case as a possible hate crime, have watched hundreds of hours of footage from private and public surveillance cameras, but gaps remain and they still haven’t seen video of the attack or men who match Smollett’s description of his assailants, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said.

By early afternoon on 1 Feb, another update;

“My body is strong but my soul is stronger,” Smollett said in a statement obtained by The Associated Press and several other outlets. “I am working with authorities and have been 100 (percent) factual and consistent on every level. Despite my frustrations and deep concern with certain inaccuracies and misrepresentations that have been spread, I still believe that justice will be served.”

  1. Once again the left fabricated stories to Vilify! First was kavannah and now this. Pathetic losers should be outted and scorned in public to stop this trend.

  2. Huge crock of crap. So many things wrong with this. Who gives a damn if he’s gay? Why was that in the story? Nobody cares! Never has a MAGA RED HAT conservative done stupid stuff like this. Isn’t in our nature. No way. Why was he alone walking by a river at 2am if he’s such a big “star”. He more than likely would have been hit by flying bullets of gang members there and at that time! Lastly, no MAGA RED HAT wearer would ever be in that area at that time! We all have jobs and have to work the next day! Stupid asinine idiot race-baiting scum! Won’t be watching that racist filled cast on that show any longer! Take it off the air for inciting violence in the belly of Hell (Chicago)! WTH do they want? More blood shed in the streets? Ignorant ass! Charge him with false reporting. Nothing there. Must be short on cash and needing the limelight a bit! Creep!
