Yesterday was the big day for many who’ve been following the Jussie Smollett hate crime hoax case.
The disgraced actor and left wing black activist received sentencing on Thursday for a crime he committed in 2019 which made national headlines and caused the entirety of liberal America to raise their fists.
Even Joe Biden voiced support for Smollett while campaigning to become the Democrat nominee. At the time, Biden’s social media team pounced on any event that even appeared to be racially motivated to show America that Grandpa Joe was no longer a racist. Since Smollett was the apparent victim of a MAGA hate crime, and since he happens to be a black, gay leftist, this was a perfect opportunity for Biden to remain in the conversation
What happened today to @JussieSmollett must never be tolerated in this country. We must stand up and demand that we no longer give this hate safe harbor; that homophobia and racism have no place on our streets or in our hearts. We are with you, Jussie. https://t.co/o8ilPu68CM

Just three months ago, Smollett was found guilty of five counts of felony disorderly conduct for filing false police reports for a staged hate crime. Smollett hired two brothers from Nigeria and paid them thousands of dollars to act as homophobic, racist Trump supporters donned with MAGA hats.
Smollett ordered the brothers to purchase the supplies needed to execute a hate crime and soon after called the police to report the hoax. He claimed to have been physically attacked by the brothers wearing MAGA hats who put a rope around his neck, poured bleach on him, and shouted racial and homophobic slurs at him, before eventually yelling, “This is MAGA country!”
After a lengthy investigation and bombshell testimony from the brothers, it was determined Smollett fabricated the entire incident.
The actor returned to a Chicago courtroom, where he was given the chance to admit that he had lied to police about the racist and homophobic attack in January 2019. He failed to do so.
The infamous hate crime hoaxer was sentenced to 150 days in Cook County jail, 30 months of probation, pay a restitution of $120,106, and a fine of $25,000.
After his sentencing, Smollett erupted in a peculiar tirade in which he repeatedly shouted “I am innocent, and I am not suicidal,” in an apparent reference to Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide in prison.

The judge was certainly lenient on Smollett. If the failed actor had been white, or a conservative, or straight, it’s no doubt the entire country would be rooting for the death penalty.
However, the judge did not fail to deliver harsh criticisms of Jussie’s crimes and his character:
“You’re just a charlatan, pretending to be a victim of a hate crime,” Judge James Linn said to Smollett.
“Your very name has become an adverb for ‘lying.’”
“I believe that you did damage to real hate crime victims.”
Judge Linn added that Smollett’s “hypocrisy is astounding,” given that the actor has taken a keen interest in social justice issues for many years, yet staged a hate crime against himself, because he “really craved attention.”
Smollett is obviously a jackass poisoned by the insidious, racially-charged leftist activism that inflates the egos of most of Hollywood today. To prove this point, Smollett even arrived late to his own sentencing and ordered his bodyguards to physically attack a photographer outside the courtroom.
