Diary of a Fake Hate Hoax (Empire Edition)

An AVM Investigative Essay by John M Jones III (4/13/19)

Jesse smollett, an actor I never even heard of before 2019, recently faked multiple hate crimes in conjunction with the DC swamp dwellers, media, and hollyweirdos. Because of his love for money, fame & attention he willfully misled the Chicago Police, the FBI and ALL of America, by claiming he was assaulted by white trump supporters. Though there IS overwhelming evidence from his co-conspirators, video evidence, and other evidence he was given “get out of jail card free” on 16 felony charges that might have put him in jail for almost 50 years.

Did he apologize to ALL of America for perpetuating this great hoax? NO! Did he admit that he made a mistake and would find a way to make up for it? NO! What he did so was play his part in the hate crime narrative that the democrats push every two & four years that American is full of racists and whites hate blacks so that they can extort votes from the great democrat plantation normal people call liberalism & identity politics.

As educated & informed voters we must not just rely on this essay, any party propaganda or media spin to influence how we get our news or how we vote. We must strive to find out for ourselves the Truth. Although I have provided detailed information about the smollett’s fake hate crime, and how the crooked media, slimy liberal hacks, and hollyweirdos perpetuated this hoax it is still up to you to find out for yourself the information YOU need to make informed choices at the ballet box.

THE HOAX FAKED: Jan. 22, when television actor Jussie Smollett reported receiving a letter with homophobic and racial invective, accompanied by a nasty threat: “You will die, black fag.” The letter also included a stick figure hanging from a tree and a white powdery substance. (1)

Yet this reaction wasn’t enough to satisfy Jussie Smollett. When the white powder turned out not to be anthrax spores but crushed acetaminophen tablets, the incident attracted little attention, even in Chicago. This apparently irked Smollett. So even as law enforcement officials came to see the Jan. 22 letter as a hoax -- they believed it was sent by Smollett to himself (1)

A week later, he famously recounted being punched by two white thugs who yelled racist and anti-gay slurs while touting Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign slogan and tying a rope around his neck, then dousing him with a caustic liquid. (1)

When news broke of the alleged racist attack on a star from one of the most popular shows on television, it riveted everyone, drawing the nation into a heated discussion about race, politics and celebrity. (2)

Smollett's family releases and emotional statement describing the alleged attack as a hate crime. "In the early hours of Tuesday morning, our beloved son and brother, Jussie, was the victim of a violent and unprovoked attack. We want to be clear, this was a racial and homophobic hate crime," the family wrote in the statement to ABC News. "Jussie has told the police everything from the very beginning. His story has never changed, and we are hopeful they will find these men and bring them to justice." (2)

When police got to his apartment, they said a noose was still around Smollett's neck. He told them he was also doused with an unknown chemical and officers said they smelled bleach on his clothes…Police said in a subsequent meeting, Smollett added his assailants referenced President Trump's campaign slogan – "make America great again" – during the attack. (3)

Smollett makes his first appearance on stage since the alleged attack, performing at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, California. "Regardless of what anyone else says, I will only stand for love," Smollett said, tearing up before beginning his set. (2)

Twelve detectives and a number of FBI agents are now investigating what has been classified as a possible hate crime. (3)

Chicago police say Smollett turned over some, but not all, of the phone records detectives requested as part of their investigation. Police say the heavily redacted files aren't sufficient. Smollett says he redacted information to protect the privacy of contacts and people not relevant to the attack (4)

Chicago police pick up two men they identify as Nigerian brothers at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport on their return from Nigeria after police learn at least one worked on "Empire." (4)

A source close to the investigation confirms to CBS News the brothers told detectives Smollett paid them to participate in the alleged attack on January 29 and that they purchased the rope — which was found around Smollett's neck — at a nearby hardware store. The source said detectives have evidence to corroborate the sale, something the men's attorney alluded to Friday night. Chicago police say local media reports that the attack against Smollett was a hoax are "unconfirmed by case detectives." (5)

In a recent interview with "Good Morning America," Smollett said he was sure the men in the photo were his attackers.

"And then I see the attacker, masked. And he said, 'This is MAGA country, n*****.' Punches me right in the face. So, I punched his ass back," Smollett said. "I think what people need to hear is just the truth." (5)

I have corroborating evidence, Smollett told the cops: I was on the mobile phone with my manager when I was attacked and he heard the whole thing. Great, said the detectives. Can we have the phone? Not gonna happen, replied the alleged victim. When Smollett finally consented to provide a pdf file of his call logs, he’d tampered with them. (1)

CPD spokesman tells ABC News that the two 'persons of interest' are, in fact, under arrest, and acknowledge that the pair has "a relationship with" Smollett. In an unusual move for an ongoing investigation, police officials who had originally described the two as 'persons of interest' begin describing them as "potential suspects." But by late that evening, investigators changed course and announced that the two men have been released without charges. (2)

“As a victim of a hate crime who has cooperated with the police investigation, Jussie Smollett is angered and devastated by recent reports that the perpetrators are individuals he is familiar with," began a statement from Smollett attorneys Todd Pugh and Victor Henderson. "He has now been further victimized by claims attributed to these alleged perpetrators that Jussie played a role in his own attack. Nothing is further from the truth and anyone claiming otherwise is lying." (2)

The Osundairo brothers, who were interrogated by police investigating the alleged attack on Jussie Smollett in Chicago, told authorities that the "Empire" actor allegedly paid them to help him orchestrate and stage the crime. (2)

The Osundairo brothers agreed to cooperate with authorities after detectives confronted them with evidence that they bought the rope -- allegedly used in an attack that Smollett described to police as laced with racial and homophobic slurs -- at a Chicago hardware store. (2)

“Multiple sources have told ABC7 Eyewitness News that police are investigating whether Smollett and the two men staged the attack allegedly because Smollett was being written off of ‘Empire,’” WLS-TV reports. (4)

Chicago police say they're still seeking a follow-up interview with Smollett after receiving new information that "shifted" their investigation of a reported attack on the "Empire" actor. (4)

Two federal officials tell ABC News that the FBI and U.S. Postal Inspection Service are investigating whether Smollett played a role in sending a threatening letter before the alleged attack. "Detectives will make contact with his legal team to negotiate a reasonable surrender for his arrest," Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said on Twitter. (2)

Smollett reportedly turns himself into police. He is placed under arrest and is in the "custody of detectives" the morning after felony criminal charges are approved against him, police say. A judge sets $100,000 bond later that day.

Smollett is indicted on 16 felony counts following his Chicago attack allegations.

Smollett pleads not guilty on 16 charges stemming from an alleged hate crime hoax during an appearance in front of Chicago Judge Steven Watkins.

The Cook County State’s Attorney’s office confirms to Fox News that it will not be prosecuting Smollett — with a judge granting a nolle pros.

DC SWAMP CONSPIRATORS: House Speaker Pelosi wrote: "The racist, homophobic attack on [Jussie Smollett] is an affront to our humanity. No one should be attacked for who they are or whom they love. I pray that Jussie has a speedy recovery & that justice is served. May we all commit to ending this hate once and for all." (7)

Rep. Ocasio-Cortex (D-NY): "There is no such thing as 'racially charged.' This attack was not 'possibly' homophobic. It was a racist and homophobic attack. If you don’t like what is happening to our country, then work to change it. It is no one’s job to water down or sugar-coat the rise of hate crimes." (7)

Sen. Booker: "The vicious attack on actor Jussie Smollett was an attempted modern-day lynching. I'm glad he's safe. To those in Congress who don't feel the urgency to pass our Anti-Lynching bill designating lynching as a federal hate crime—I urge you to pay attention." (7)

Sen. Harris: "[Jussie Smollett] is one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know. I’m praying for his quick recovery. This was an attempted modern day lynching. No one should have to fear for their life because of their sexuality or color of their skin. We must confront this hate." (7)

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA): “Jussie is my friend - a very talented & beautiful human being. It is so hurtful that homophobic haters would dare hurt someone so loving and giving. I'm dedicated to finding the culprits and bringing them to justice. Jussie did not deserve to be harmed by anyone!” (7)

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY): "New York State calls this attack on Jussie Smollett what it is — a hate crime. Homophobia and racism will not be tolerated — not now, not ever." (7)

Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA): "This kind of violence should be unacceptable. We cannot continue to allow racism, homophobia, transphobia, anti-semitism, or any other form of hate continue to drive violence in our country." (7)

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX): "Hate in any form is unacceptable - I was deeply troubled to hear of the attack on him and I am relieved that [Jussie Smollett] is safe and receiving medical attention and is not deterred from being the best actor and performer can be - #NoHate." (7)

Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel took aim at President Trump over what he said was the “toxic environment” the billionaire has created, adding that it played a role in the Jussie Smollett hate crime “hoax.”

HOLLYWEIRD CONSPIRATORS: Lee Daniels, creator of "Empire": "It's taken me a minute to come to social media about this because, Jussie, you are my son. You didn't deserve -- nor anybody deserves -- to have a noose put around your neck, to have bleach thrown on you. To be called 'die f****t,' 'n****r' or whatever they said to you. (6)

Shonda Rhimes: "Sending love, healing, and support to @jussiesmollett. We ALL have a responsibility to rise up against the ignorance and hate out there. If you know who did this, REPORT THEM TO THE POLICE." (6)

Vivica A. Fox: "I'm just now hearing the news about the senseless hate attack on my #EMPiRE Nephew @JussieSmollett IM SO ANGRY AND HURT ABOUT THIS! THIS MUST STOP!! SPREAD LOVE NOT HATE! PRAYERS UP TO U NEPHEW!" (6)

Alyssa Milano: I’ve been trying to figure out all day what to say about the racist, homophobic, violence against @JussieSmollett. Not sure I can describe what I’m feeling in a neat & tidy tweet. His trauma deserves more. I’m sad. Living together on the planet shouldn’t be this difficult (6a)

20th Century Fox Television and Fox Entertainment: "We are deeply saddened and outraged to learn that a member of our 'Empire' family, Jussie Smollett, was viciously attacked last night. We send our love to Jussie, who is resilient and strong, and we will work with law enforcement to bring these perpetrators to justice.(6)

THE MEDIA CONSPIRATORS: Daily Beast senior entertainment reporter Kevin Fallon tweeted: “People in MAGA hats recognized and then beat and poured bleach on Jussie Smollett, calling him that ‘faggot’ from Empire,” Fallon said in his tweet. “Anyone who thinks supporting You Know Who isn’t tantamount to providing artillery for weaponized bigotry needs to take a hard look in the mirror.” and “Update after learning more: they wore ski masks, so as to cowardly not be recognized as they shouted ‘this is MAGA country’ and toed [sic] a rope around his neck like a noose. (8)

GQ writer Joshua Rivera called out the Chicago PD for calling the matter a “possible” hate crime — saying the cautious language was a further attack on Smollett. (8)

Trevoh Noah, the daily show: The Jussie Smollett saga began as a story of people who hated him because he was black and gay. Now, people just hate him because he’s an asshole. (9)

Across the country, media outlets reported his implausible allegations as fact, and even attacked the few conservatives who put their reputations on the line to call out his nonsensical story. According to Media Matters, questioning his lies was a “right wing smear.” (11)

We saw journalists in many cases report Smollett's highly dubious claims as facts -- not allegations. And as his story was rapidly falling apart, Smollett was granted a softball interview on Good Morning America, where he was treated with kid gloves. (12)

Video Montage of desperate media reporting the hoax as FACT:

If he is SO innocent, then: In a press conference on Tuesday, Johnson said he didn't think justice was served. "Do I think justice was served? No," Johnson bluntly told reporters. "What do I think justice is? I think this city is still owed an apology.” "I heard that they wanted their day in court with TV cameras so America could know the truth," he continued. "But no, they chose to hide behind secrecy and broker a deal to circumvent the judicial system. ... I stand behind the detectives' investigation." (13)

"I'd like to remind everybody that a grand jury indicted this individual on only a piece of the evidence that police had collected," Emanuel said. “... This is a whitewash of justice. A grand jury could not have been clearer." (13)

Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson says "Empire" star Jussie Smollett "still has the presumption of innocence and he still has his opportunity in court if he chooses to go that route." But, as he told "Good Morning America" host Robin Roberts on Monday, "there's a lot more evidence that hasn't been presented yet that doesn't support the version that he gave us. There's still a lot of video evidence, physical evidence and testimony that doesn't support what he said happened." (14)

Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson says he's angry and offended that "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett allegedly lied about being the victim of a racist and homophobic attack. He says Smollett exploited racial divisions for his own gain — and smeared the reputation of a city that Johnson has worked his entire career to protect. (15)

Johnson said at a news conference Thursday that Smollett, 36, also sent a racist and homophobic threatening letter to himself at the Fox studio lot before the attack because he was dissatisfied with his salary. (16)

In the second such petition in two days, a former Illinois Appellate Court judge formally requested Friday that a special prosecutor investigate Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s handling of the Jussie Smollett case. (17)

The Law Department has filed a civil complaint against Mr. Smollett in the Circuit Court of Cook County that pursues the full measure of damages allowed under the false statements ordinance. This follows his refusal to reimburse the City of Chicago for the cost of police overtime spent investigating his false police report on January 29, 2019. (18)

Jussie Smollett may have had all the criminal charges against him for an alleged racial and homophobic attack dropped today, but that doesn’t mean he’s innocent says the state attorney handling the high-profile case. “I do not believe he is innocent,” First Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney Joseph Magats told Chicago media on Tuesday of the 16 felony charges the Empire star faced. (19)

The Final Lie: “I want you to know that not for a moment was it in vain. I have been truthful and consistent on every single level since day one. I would not be my mother’s son if I was capable of one drop of what I have been accused of.
