There’s Corruption, Deep Corruption
by David Sims
THERE’S corruption afoot. Sixteen criminal charges against Jussie Smollett have been dropped, and the reason that they have been dropped hasn’t been made public. Jussie Smollett and leftist organizations are saying that the reason is that the charges are now known to be false — which would mean that Jussie Smollett was indeed attacked by two White racist men in downtown Chicago, who beat him up, tied a noose around his neck, poured bleach on him, and said “This is MAGA country.”
But we definitely know that that didn’t happen. For one thing, Smollett’s two Nigerian buddies have confessed to helping Smollett set up the hoax, and there is security camera video of those same two Nigerian brothers purchasing the rope and the bleach used in the hoax at a hardware store.
Even if we didn’t have very good evidence that Smollett orchestrated a hoax, there are so many implausibilities in Smollett’s story that no thinking person could believe it.
The dropping of the charges stinks of the corruption of political favor, perhaps of the kind of political favor that can be obtained through bribery. Despite what you might hear from the lying leftist mainstream media, the state prosecutor denied that dropping the charges against Jussie Smollett meant that Smollett was innocent of those charges. Rather, it meant that Smollett had been excused from facing a trial on those charges because the state decided to be content with his forfeiting his bond money and with his doing some community service.
But why would the state be pleased to make such a soft and generous deal for Jussie Smollett? The state attorney general’s office explained that the reason for dropping the charges, in exchange for the bond money and the community service, was to prioritize the state’s crime-fighting resources toward more egregious violent offenders.
How’s that for a justification of a slap on the wrist? Do you think that we’d be so lucky if, say, a White man with pro-White politics were the one caught perpetrating a racial hate-crime hoax?
One commenter said, “…The asst state’s attorney said he saw no problems with the police investigation or the evidence against Smollett. The charges against Smollett were dropped in return for his agreement to do community service, he said, and for forfeiting his bond to the city of Chicago. More from that official: ‘Here’s the thing — we work to prioritize violent crime and the drivers of violent crime. Public safety is our number one priority. I don’t see Jussie Smollett as a threat to public safety. We stand behind the investigation, we stand behind the decision to charge him, and we stand behind the charges in the case. The mere fact that it was disposed of in an alternative manner does not mean that there were any problems or infirmities in the case or the evidence.'”
So don’t for one minute entertain any idea that the dropping of the charges proves that Smollett isn’t guilty. The state does indeed believe that Smollett is guilty. They just decided not to prosecute him for his crimes, to go easy on him, because… uh… reasons.
[Could real privilege — Black privilege, mixed-race privilege, homosexual privilege, Jewish privilege — be involved? Wikipedia says of Smollett, “Smollett is biracial. His mother is African-American and his father was Jewish… He has said that his father would have “killed you if you called him white.” His father was absent from his life for a significant portion of his childhood… Smollett told his parents he was gay when he was 19.” — Ed.]
Do you want to know the real reason that the charges against Jussie Smollett were dropped? The head of the State’s Attorney’s Office in Cook County, Illinois, is Kimberly M. Foxx. She’s Black, just like Jussie Smollett is Black. No one needs to look any further for any other reasons, because that reason is the true one.
Furthermore, a judge has sealed the case file on Jussie Smollett’s former criminal charges, which means that anyone who has first hand knowledge of the case is prohibited from talking about it. This is what you’d expect if the state had reason to suppress certain details.
Kimberly M. Foxx didn’t officially make the decision to drop the charges against Jussie Smollett herself. Her assistant, an apparently White man named Joseph Magats, did that. Foxx had to recuse herself because she had been influenced by friends and relatives of Jussie Smollett, including Tina Tchen, a former chief of staff for former First Lady Michelle Obama, and a member of Jussie Smollett’s family. But this is merely a case of Magats being a glove on Foxx’s hand. This ridiculously corrupt action, dropping the charges against Smollett, was almost certainly a result of some understanding between the two attorneys.
TMZ said in an article: “Magats says his office prioritizes violent crimes in Chicago, and felt this case wouldn’t be the best use of resources. For the record, he says he made this decision alone … without consultation from Foxx.” Which claim, of course, I believe is a lie.
I think that both Joseph Magats and Kimberly M. Foxx should be investigated for corruption, and, if credible evidence is found, they should be fired from their jobs, be indicted (by a grand jury), and, if convicted at trial, sent to prison. Discretion in the exercise of authority does not go so far as to turn a blind eye to sixteen felonies, whether or not the motive has to do with Black racism.
