The corporate-controlled press is constantly on the prowl for hate crime stories to highlight.
But many high-profile hate crimes turn out to be fake.
And one Hollywood star’s hoax hate crime just destroyed his life.
Former Empire actor Jussie Smollett was found guilty, ending the embarrassing saga of his hate crime hoax.
Smollett paid two associates to fake a hate crime so he could garner sympathy and elevate his profile in Hollywood.
The so-called mainstream media ran with the story, but quickly tried to memory-hole it after Smollett’s lie began to unravel.
George Soros-backed Chicago state’s attorney Kim Foxx let off Smollett—whose family has close ties to the Obamas—with a slap on the wrist, but a special prosecutor was brought in to seek true justice in the Smollett case.
And a jury of his peers found Smollett guilty on five of six counts.
Verdict in Jussie Smollett trial:
Count 1 – Guilty
Count 2 – Guilty
Count 3 – Guilty
Count 4 – Guilty
Count 5 – Guilty
Count 6 – Not guilty
He faced six disorderly conduct charges for making false reports to police.

One shudders to think what would have happened had there not been any cameras around to capture the fake hate crime.
Smollett tried to exploit a fragile political moment to sell his abused story.
North Carolina lieutenant governor Mark Robinson ripped Smollett for the profoundly harmful thing he did.
Robinson wrote in a social media post:
“Jussie Smollett committed the ultimate act of disrespect; he spit on us. He spit on the collective graves of every black person murdered because of the color of their skin. He spit on the grave of every person murdered because of their lifestyle. He spit on the grave of every person murdered because of their political beliefs. He spit in the face of every American and America itself. He forged a sharp-edged weapon from a LIE and attempted to use it to tear open the old wounds of bigotry while bearing false witness against his political opponents and the Nation that has blessed him so richly.”
Smollett faces up to three years in prison, but he is expected to get off without any jail time.
That doesn’t seem like enough considering how much poison he spewed into the mainstream.
