Reason magazine had a good article on the events that I saw over the weekend. Apparently, the boys suffered verbal abuse for a couple of hours and yet remained pretty calm through it all. Yet, somehow it's their fault.

Quote

Far from engaging in racially motivated harassment, the group of mostly white, MAGA-hat-wearing male teenagers remained relatively calm and restrained despite being subjected to incessant racist, homophobic, and bigoted verbal abuse by members of the bizarre religious sect Black Hebrew Israelites, who were lurking nearby. The BHI has existed since the late 19th century, and is best describes as a black nationalist cult movement; its members believe they are descendants of the ancient Israelites, and often express condemnation of white people, Christians, and gays. DC-area Black Hebrews are known to spout particularly vile bigotry.

I've been observing a variety of lefties online today. They are super pissed that smirky white boy is being given a chance to explain himself. They're saying it ain't fair, because non-whites would not be given the same chance. Once a whitey is accused of something, that should be it. Guilty. You don't get to change the Narrative™ with facts. They already judged him, so there's no going back, and you don't get to take away their enjoyment of punishing him.

Jonathan,

But notice how many of them are suddenly deleting tweets left and right and openly backpedaling.

That's because they were inciting danger, including doxing, against minors. Some were even calling for killing the kids. The Hammer of Thor is getting ready to come down on their heads with class action suits and, odds are, they lose and lose like losing big time looks like.

This was one staged and manufactured narrative that blew up in their faces. I hope those kids get rich off their sorry asses. Those smarmy pundits and fake news media people deserve everything they wished and tried to rain down on those kids. Goddam bigots, they are.

Get a load of this:

Native American "Harassed" By MAGA Kids Exposed As Outrage-Culture Grifter

Fake bullshit through and through.

One after another. And the fake news media keeps on chugging them out.

But wait! There's more!

The geniuses who consume the fake news media and constantly fall for this crap complain about the gullibility and paranoia of Alex Jones.

It's probably because they are superior humans or something.

The Truth About the MAGA Hat Kids and the Native American Vet

I'm too busy right now to curate the most juicy parts for you, so read it if you like this kind of commentary. This is a good one.

EDIT: Well... you know I'm not going to be able to resist. :) 

So here's a tidbit from the transcript:

Quote

There’s two hours of additional video that shows conclusively what happened before and after the encounter with the frail but valiant Indian protester. Far from engaging in racially motivated harassment, this group of kids from Covington remained calm and restrained. They are the ones that didn’t do anything! They didn’t even hurl any insults! They did not react! They behaved as well-mannered teenagers should. They’re the ones that had class in this whole thing.

And, as such, I would think the Never Trumpers would be their biggest champions! Why do the Never Trumpers hate Trump? Because he’s got no manners, because he’s gauche, because he’s impolitic, he’s impolite, he’s a boor! Well, these kids were models of composure. They were models of restraint. They were polite. They were respectful. They were everything the Never Trumpers say Trump isn’t, everything that we need in leadership — and they’re being thrown overboard.

And they’re the ones who deserve the accolades in this whole encounter. They’re the ones who were well-mannered! They’re the ones we hope become future leaders in this country, not this ragtag bunch of protesters surrounding ’em. They were subjected… I don’t know how many people know this. These teenagers were subjected to some of the most vile, racist, homophobic verbal abuse that you can imagine. They were called the F-word. (You know, slang for homosexual.) They were called murderers. It was said they are what’s wrong with life.

“You should have been aborted,” ’cause they were at a pro-life rally.

That is funny since the anti-Trumpers (including Republican idiots like S. E. Cupp) were the worst of the lot to pile on these kids with pure unadulterated finger-wagging bullshit while being the worst to habitually complain about President Trump's manners.

What a bunch of morons!

It really is stunnng that in today's world, people have still not learned to shut the f up until the facts are in. Especially since they've burned themselves so many times over Trump and MAGA issues. Wait before you open your mouth to express your seething hatred of Trump and his supporters. Give it a day or two to see if your hatred has distorted your interpretation of events, and that your hatreds have been fueled by others hatred-driven misinterpretations and outright lies. You're making fools and assholes of yourselves and accomplishing the opposite of your goals.

The market is speaking.

Buzzfeed had to lay off staff. However, the alt media, even with the onslaught of bans, is doing just fine. I guess there is simply not much audience for a niche writer who only caters to transgender Asian dog-lovers. :)  But the far left is not amused. They feel entitled to their niches and they are leaking like a sieve.

And while we are on Buzzfeed, the following story is just ridiculous. It's in Slate, of all places, the left of the left.

BuzzFeed’s Unpaid 19-Year-Old Quiz Genius on Her Tricks, the Layoffs, and Jonah Peretti

Essentially, a college student fan of Buzzfeed liked to make quizzes and post them on Buzzfeed as a hobby. She would do about 50 a week. Buzzfeed has earned about $300 million from her quizzes. They goosed her along with flattering emails and sent her a few Amazon gift cards as thanks.

I mean, come on. Buzzfeed gets a cool $300 million and all they can pay the attraction that generated that sum is a few Amazon gift cards?

Socialism at its finest, I tell ya'.

But remember that the Trayvon Martin case, where the audio was manipulated by actual domestic media companies (NBC, mainly) to make the shooter out to be racist, was thrown out.  In this case (Covington) the misleading editing was done outside the country. 

Good chance some of these targets will settle ahead of time, however.  Which ought to make the kid's lawyers some money.

This video from Jimmy Dore (a leftie) is worth watching simply because it's where the term "smugnorant" got coined

Smugnorant is now a hashtag out on the social media platforms.

And what does it mean?

So far, smugnorant mostly refers to fake news media journalists who drank the Kool-Aid, that is, smug insiders who are not only ignorant of facts, they parrot what Jimmy calls "received opinions." These are not the real opinions of the journalist insiders, just phrases they heard people say inside their bubble that they parrot without understanding the meaning.

Now I can not only say "fake news media." I can say the "smugnorant fake news media."

First, a more-or-less factual account now that the hoax is unraveling:

Chicago police believe Jussie Smollett PAID two Nigerian brothers $3,500 to ATTACK him on the street and they bought the rope found around the Empire star's neck from a local hardware store
- Actor Jussie Smollett orchestrated an assault against him, Chicago police say
- Empire star hired two Nigerian brothers to beat him, investigators believe
- Both men, Nigerian brothers, are friends of Smollett and said to be anti-Trump
- The brothers were reportedly paid $3,500 and were promised additional $500 
- Smollett has hired high-powered defense lawyer Michael Monico
- Smollett said last month that he was the victim of a racist, homophobic attack
- Said he fought off two noose-wielding white men yelling 'this is MAGA country'
- Police say new evidence emerged in interrogations that requires investigation 

Quote

Empire star Jussie Smollett paid two men $3,500 to stage an assault against him which he later claimed was an attack motivated by racism and homophobia, investigators in Chicago now believe.

The two men involved in the alleged hoax are now fully cooperating with law enforcement, CNN is reporting on Saturday.

On January 29, two men 'yelled out racial and homophobic slurs' while attacking Smollett, the actor told police. 

One of the assailants tied a rope around his neck and poured an unknown chemical substance on him, Smollett claimed at the time. 

During the attack, the assailants yelled 'Empire f****t' and 'Empire n*****,' the actor has long maintained. 

That narrative, however, is now under serious scrutiny by investigators, who reportedly have evidence that Smollett directed his 'attackers' to buy the rope used in the 'assault' at a local hardware store.

Now for the pure garbage spewed out by the US mainstream press at the time the hoax took place (you have to see the video at the link):

MONTAGE: WATCH THE MEDIA UNCRITICALLY ACCEPT ANOTHER OUTLANDISH ‘HATE CRIME’
‘This is America in 2019’

Quote

When TMZ first reported that actor Jussie Smollett was the victim of a vicious hate crime, it sounded almost impossible to believe. 

Upon leaving a Chicago Subway sandwich shop circa 2 AM one sub-zero night in late January, two masked men recognized him as the openly gay black actor starring in Fox’s ‘Empire,’ hurled racist and homophobic slurs at him, beat him to the point of breaking his ribs, doused him with bleach, tied a noose around his neck, before pronouncing “This is MAGA Country!” and fleeing. 

Making such astonishing claims, the national media owed it to their viewers to give this story the circumspect coverage responsible journalism demands.

If only.

Instead the major media used their platform to uncritically parrot TMZ’s original report, even adding new details along the way (such as that the attackers wore “Make America Great Again” hats). This vicious hate crime, they said, painted a disturbing picture of America in 2019.

As Smollett’s claims have unraveled over the intervening weeks, it’s worth revisiting how the story was originally covered.

Check out the montage above to for a quick refresher.

As Mike Cernovich noticed, almost all of the Democrat candidates for president spread Smollett's hate crime hoax at the time it happened.

And the fake news media. Continues to be fake news.

The Smollett hoax to them was Mike Pence's fault.

You can't make this up.

btw - I wonder if Page is getting rusty. She sounded real phony to Colbert at the end. Her acting was off.

Maybe they'll take her in the soaps after her star dims a little more. Melodrama seems to be her thing right now...

No surprise that Shitty Liddle’ zero credibility Adam Schitt has seen Jussie’s activism up close, and fully approves.

They’ve never been more desperate to avoid the justice that’s soon coming to them. 

 

I met @JussieSmollett at the Pride Parade in Los Angeles, and I've seen the passion and moral clarity of his activism first hand. This week he was the victim of an horrific attack. We pray for your speedy recovery, Jussie, and reject this act of hatred and bigotry.

Jon,

They never stop, either.

These people are blinded by their own cockeyed core stories. And those who are not blind are evil manipulators.

When reality does not fit their story, they try to alter reality by deception. And here's the rub. Even the blind know they are deceiving when they are deceiving.

Man, are there a lot of these suckers (both types) in the fake mainstream media and fake mainstream social media.

Within the media it’s 99% the latter type.

Many  consumers of media are  hapless victims, but I cannot believe anymore that any of the media people are being duped or rushing because they want so bad to be first. Nonsense. They’re full–blown participants in all of these scams, they are doing their part.

Declassification of FISA abuse docs brings down the House, and much more. Already ordered by Trump, DECLAS is the trigger on his finger.

But, it all breaks wide open at that point. A lot of plan Zs get activated. It is extremely dangerous.

Man, does Carpe Donktum nail it.

 

This is America...

For sure.

And this is the Fake News Media...

And this tweet is The Art of the Meme. (That would be a great title for a book. :) )

btw - I've known Carpe Diem means "sieze the day" ever since Dead Poets Society. What I didn't know is that Carpe Donktum bastardized some Latin to say, "seize the donkey," and by that, he means the Democrat donkey.

The opening post of the Fake News thread seems as good a place as any. So here is the gem of a site I just found. To quote from the site, it's a "database of the false reports of 'hate crimes' committed in the USA":

Fake Hate Crimes

I might add to this as I discover more. If anyone needs this information for research (like for articles, videos, memes, etc.), please bookmark the site or this page.

This is a long one, but Lara Logan opens up both barrels on the mainstream news. Yeah, it's biased and fake. Her exact word was "horseshit."

She should know. She's among the elite of TV news personalities.

She also discusses her gang rape in Egypt during the Arab Spring.

It's long, but it's a hell of an interview.
