And certain others who seem to really revel in it and take it as a "victory" for whatever reason.

He was guilty, he's an asshole, going to jail, good. It is not worthy of national news or something "political".

24. My trumpflake "adult" son has been calling me a "Jussie Smollett supporter" throughout this trial.

He never even heard of Smollett until a couple of months ago. RWNJ propaganda outlets and his podcast overlords tell him what to think and say. Even after telling the kid that I thought he was guilty, and an asshole, and a liar, I was informed that "all of you libtards support n-word criminals". I have no idea what that is supposed to mean, but I generally laugh whenever he speaks these days.

RW Millennials are a special breed of crazy.

The typical person who thinks the Smollett trial is important stuff usually has a Pepe type of avatar and also thought the FOX tree being set on fire was done by Soros and Kamala Harris personally and a post signature with "Let's Go Brandon".

36. Ugggh. I saw a large "Let's Go, Brandon" sticker on a car at my daughter's school today.

It had an image of Orange Anus on it. I looked to see who was driving.
I don't personally know her, but rest assured, she's a "Karen". I've seen her in action at school events.
Our kids are several grades apart, so I don't have to deal with her. Five more months and my daughter graduates to High School. She's been getting a decent education at her elementary school, but I'm seeing a hard right swing in some of the other parents coming in. I even got more involved in the PTO starting two years ago to help dilute the rightie presence.

He went on national TV crying for Pete’s sake. Even Kamela Harris got tangled in the mess, which was not her fault. Who could imagine someone would make up such a story?

And it was ridiculous on its face.... I mean somebody recognized him????

The VP should have known better. Of course there were even people on this board taking his side at the time.

And BLM is still beating his drum, proving themselves to be.... well just a head shake at this point.

And from what I'm hearing from various sources in the media, no one believes he'll get a serious punishment either.

Not here, but Reddit. I was in Chicago at the time. No one was willingly outside that night. It was polar vortex hell. Never mind casually loping about for a sandwich.

I still love the fact he used a personal check for it. Reminds me of one of my favorite SNL bits.

21. I expected this. This case was a mess. He was guilty. The real problem is this...

Smollett, for whatever his reasons were, became the guy who cried wolf.
This hurts society because he cheapened what actually happens to people sometimes. And it happens too often. He fucked up bad. Not only the lying, but now the convictions, and he's going to get his ass sued by The City of Chicago, and rightly so. He'll never have a decent acting career again.

It's bad enough that there are racist attacks every day in this nation, but trying to fake that kind of situation just to get some attention is despicable. It helps no one, and hurts many.

And, I'd like to say to Mr. Smollett -- Chicago is not "maga country". Thank you for that insult.

29. Smollett lied but hate crimes happen every day.

The white fragility types (who actually think whites are the victims in America) will fixate on Smollett because it plays into their belief that racism (and sexism, homophobia, etc) itself is a hoax.

What Rittenhouse did (murdered two people with an assault weapon) was far worse, but being a white boy (who the judge and jurors could sympathize with as 'one of their own') he got special treatment and walked away scott free.

No one is making it out to be the crime of the century.

How do you feel about him outing a Nigerian man, which may put his life in danger in his own country? How do you feel about him accusing two black men of a false crime? This has nothing to do with white people.

Again, I don't hope for him to serve time; I hope he gets the help he obviously needs.

Walks free and he tried to overthrow the freaking government! And committed negligent homicide for not warning people of covid and hundreds of thousands died because of that MF. So totally agree. Not the crime of the century.

39. He won't serve a day in jail.

No reason to send someone to prison at a cost of $50k per year because they lied to police. Probation , a fine and restitution will be his only punishment. If he appeals this could cost him in excess of $100k out of his bank account. He should apologize and resume his career.

I've made bad judgment calls when I was young and Smollett can recover from this and continue his career. IMHO. YMMV.
