(Gateway Pundit) – Last week, obscure actor Jussie Smollett made national headlines when he claimed to have been targeted in a racist homophobic attack. Gateway Pundit’s Cristina Laila broke the story:
According to a report by TMZ, “Empire” star Jussie Smollett, 35, was brutally beaten by 2 white Trump supporters in ski masks at 2 AM in Chicago.
TMZ reported that according to sources directly connected to Smollett, he was walking to Subway to get something to eat at 2 AM when 2 white men wearing ski masks put his head in a noose, poured bleach on him and screamed, “This is MAGA country!”
According to TMZ, someone also yelled, “Aren’t you that fag*ot ‘Empire’ nig*er?”
Very quickly, things weren’t adding up with Jussie’s story.
Hmm… After Reviewing Hundreds of Hours of Surveillance Footage, Chicago Police Still Have Not Found Video of Attack on Jussie Smollett

Now, it’s only getting worse. Even lefty media outlets like Mediate are starting to publicly print what people are saying privately….
In short, there is near unanimity among police sources that Smollett’s story is very likely not true. And that even the media outlets still regurgitating the current “party line” don’t really believe it.
But don’t get your hopes up that Jussie will ever face justice if he filed a false report.
The first thing you need to understand about this situation is that, because of Smollett’s persona and the nature of his allegation, no one in law enforcement or the news media wants any part of publicly questioning his story. Everyone knows that if they make any sort of negative implication against a black, gay, liberal, celebrity, victim of a horrible hate crime, that they will be roundly and severely attacked, regardless of whether they turn out to be correct.
