Chuck on the right side
THIS IS A BLOG THAT TRIES TO APPEAL TO THE AVERAGE CONSERVATIVE CITIZEN AND HAS NO AGENDA OTHER THAN TELLING THE TRUTH AS WE SEE IT.
How can anybody, with a semblance of curiosity and skepticism, not challenge the scenario put forth by gay, black actor, Jussie Smollett, that he was viciously attacked on a Chicago street, inferring that it was a “hate crime attack”? Is it normal for someone at 2 AM in the darkness of the morning, in a black neighborhood with a sizable gay population, with a temperature with a wind-chill factor of -20 degrees, be picked out by two white masked guys wearing MAGA (Make America Great Again) hats, who then administered a beating and putting a noose around his neck, and claiming that this was MAGA country besides voicing gay slurs. It just doesn't pass the smell test.
But, his unfiltered version of that event were grabbed upon by a fawning media and “blood-thirsty” anti-Trump Democrats, as an indictment of President Donald Trump for supposedly creating the climate for this kind of violent hate behavior. With the above facts in mind, this rush to judgment was just another example of the forces of “impeach” Trump at all costs, who will believe anything or anyone that might justify their hatred of the president. The facts be damned. The anti-Trump media (90% of all Trump stories that appear in the main stream media are negative) wouldn't or couldn't control themselves as they wanted this “fake” news story to be true. The frenzy on the part of the liberal talk show “journalists” and the unhinged politicians, to promote this “hoax”, was a sight to behold. You'd think that from their sanctimonious comments, that Trump and his administration were promoting these violent racial acts against these protected minority groups (namely blacks and gays).
Was this bogus case just an aberration or have we had a spate or racial, homophobic, and sexual abuse hoaxes over the past few years? The answer is “YES”. Let's take a look at some of the most egregious hoaxes that have occurred recently. Remember the Duke Lacrosse Case, where a group of lacrosse players were accused of gang raping a black exotic dancer? After those boys were vilified in the press and by the school administration, the whole scenario was considered a hoax, and the boys reputations were left in tatters. Another case was an article that appeared in Rolling Stone magazine saying that a female student was viciously raped on the University of Virginia campus, but after further investigation it was judged that no such event occurred, it was all a hoax. And just recently, we had the Covington, Kentucky H.S. students who were accused of blatant racism when confronted by a native American protester on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Because some of these students, who were attending a Right to Life demonstration and were waiting for a bus to go home, were donning MAGA hats, that was justification, by the media, that they must be white racists, and they showed a 30 second video clip to back up their contention attempting to prove racism on the part of the students, and a 16 year old student in particular. When a full video turned up showing no bias or racism on the part of the students, the biased media had to “eat crow” and admit their rush to judgment was “fake news”, they did it very reluctantly, if at all.
The latest hoax perpetuated by a deranged, anti-Trump leftist, gay, black actor, Jussie Smollett, is just another case case of the media jumping to conclusions before all the facts had came out. Not only was this a staged act (as described by the Chicago police), the “supposed victim” has now been charged with making a false police report, a 4th degree felony. He faces real time in prison. Amen.
This supposed spate of false claims of racial violence perpetrated by “whites” against blacks doesn't stand up to scrutiny. According to Heather MacDonald of the City Journal, between 2012 and 2015, blacks committed more than 85% of interracial violent confrontations between blacks and whites. So the narrative that we have an endemic racial problem of whites attacking blacks is not substantiated by the facts, and to blame the rhetoric or actions of President Trump, is preposterous. It seems the left will say or do anything in order to undermine President Trump and his administration. Again quoting Heather MacDonald, “anti-racism – preferably of a performance nature – is now the national religion of “white elites”. And, I might add, the black elites who wallow in the victimology of blacks by whites.
These false incitements of bogus racial violent acts (also gender, homophobic, and religious acts) must be confronted with the facts or our country will be irreparably divided over racial, sexual, and gender differences. We don't need anymore racially charged hoaxes or any other hoaxes.
