"The Hate Hoax" Featuring Actor Jussie Smollett

On CBS's "The Late Show" with Stephen Colbert last week, actress Ellen Page took aim at President Trump and Vice President Pence, holding them responsible for the "hate crime" attack on black, homosexual actor Jussie Smollett.

Over 18 million people have watched Page's rant against the President and Vice President on social media.

The Chicago police have been investigating to apprehend those who committed the brutal hate crime.

And they have now solved the case.


The problem.

Ellen Page ripped
 into both the President and Vice President for being responsible for this hate crime.

She told Colbert,
"The Vice President of America wishes I didn't have the love with my wife. If you are in a position of power and you hate people, and you want to cause suffering to them, you go through the trouble, you spend your career trying to cause suffering, what do you think is going to happen? Kids are going to to abused and they're going to kill themselves, and people are going to be beaten on the street."

She said tearfully, "I have traveled the world and I have met the most marginalized people you could meet. I am lucky to have this time and privilege to say this: This needs to ******** stop."

And she said: "The urgency is so severe. But instead, we have the media barely talking about it."

They actually were talking about it---not only reporting but slamming the President and Vice President for creating an environment in which something like this could happen.

Smollett who is well known for his roll in "Empire" is both black and homosexual.

On January 29, TMZ reported that "Chicago police confirms to TMZ, Jussie told them about attackers yelling MAGA [Make America Great Again] country."

Jussie told the police the perpetrators were also swearing at him, calling him "faggot" and using the "n" word.

They reported that Jussie and the rest of the main "Empire" cast members will now have armed security while they continue filming in Chicago.

By noon of that day, Empire creator Lee Daniels was publicly expressing outrage and horror over the attack.

And by that evening and the following day, the "news" media was reporting the narrative from the Empire press release:
"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."

Soon, the media was reporting that it was two white men.
"The two men---both white and wearing ski masks---viciously attacked Jussie as he fought back, but they beat him badly and fractured a rib. They put a robe around his neck, poured bleach on him and as they left they yelled, 'This is MAGA country'."

The news media was reporting that the Chicago police was treating it as a possible "hate crime" because Smollett had recently "come out" on the Ellen DeGeneres show---but it could also be because of Smollett's skin color. Or both.

The NAACP denounced President Trump and VP Pence for the attack on Smollett.

Sen. Kalmala Harris (D-CA) and Democratic Party presidential candidate blamed Trump and called it a "modern day lynching," saying, "No one should have to fear life because of their sexuality or color of their skin. We must confront this hate."

Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ), a likely presidential candidate, called for the House to pass legislation that would designate lynching a federal hate crime.

Bernie Sanders said,
"The racist and homophobic attack on Jussie Smollett is a horrible instance of the surging hostility toward minorities around the country. We must come together to eradicate all forms of bigotry and violence."

The Truth.

The Chicago police are now reporting that they believe it was a hoax. Yep, the whole thing---the homophobic hate, the racist hate, the attempted lynching, and the physical attack---the whole thing arranged and paid for by Smollett.

The police believe that Smollett paid two men to stage the attack on himself last month.

By last Saturday night, even CNN reported that "Chicago Police believe Jussie Smollett paid two men to orchestrate the assault, The two men are now cooperating fully with law enforcement.

Saturday, local Chicago news was reporting that police have arrested two Nigerian brothers who were questioned about the episode. The brothers have told the policed they bought the rope at a local ACE Hardware store.

The brothers say they were paid $3500 to assault the actor and promised $500 more.

The real problem--Double talk from the Left.

As we observe the course of human events, it becomes more and more clear that the Left's plea for tolerance was never serious. How could it become such a shrill cry of intolerance almost over night if they actually ever meant it?

The secular Left is not tolerant. And they are not inclusive---nor do they believe in diversity.

Dr. Everett Piper, president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University, wrote an article last summer about this very issue. It sums up the "real problem" at the heart of the Smollett episode---and many others.

His article titled, "More double talk from the Left," says these kinds of events exposes the Big Lie---the fact that members of the elite class really never believed any of their previous posturing about human rights, personal freedom and the dignity of human life. Their call for diversity and inclusion was simply a "sleight-of-hand."

Those who claim to be advocates for "tolerance" have become the most "intolerant" among us.

Piper quotes Archbishop Charles Chaput who once said: "Evil preaches tolerance until it is dominant, then it seeks to silence good."

He also quotes Dorothy L. Sayers who has written,
"In the world it is called Tolerance, but in hell it is called Despair...the sin that believes in nothing, cares for nothing, seeks to know nothing, interferes with nothing, enjoys nothing, hates nothing, finds purpose in nothing, lives for nothing, and remains alive because there is nothing for which it will die."

He writes that secular progressives
"may have gone to Harvard Law School or they may work at the University of Virginia, but that education clearly did not breed much humility. They think they know some things, but do they know anything that really matters? Over and over their double speak shows they have information but no ethics, knowledge but no morality, technology but no truth. Satiated with facts they have no faith---except in themselves. They are the final measure. They are the gods. They need not be tolerant of anyone who doesn't worship them."

This is why our "house"---our beloved America, is so deeply divided. It isn't a political divide, it's a spiritual divide.

And the only solution is a spiritual solution.

"If my people who are called by My name..."

Be Prayerful, Be Informed. Be vigilant. Be Faithful. Be Steadfast.


  1. Now if it is proven that all this is a hoax will there be any apologies from the left? I doubt it.

  2. I am again reminded of these words by Francis Schaeffer. "If there is no absolute moral standard, then one cannot say in a final sense that anything is right or wrong. By absolute we mean that which always applies, that which provides a final or ultimate standard. There must be an absolute if there are to be morals, and there must be an absolute if there are to be real values. If there is no absolute beyond man's ideas, then there is no final appeal to judge between individuals and groups whose moral judgments conflict. We are merely left with conflicting opinions.
    Francis Schaeffer

  3. Got that right! All is in the church, in Congress, in the media, in the schools ,and on the streets. Remove God and that's what you get.

  4. The first step for this current American (worldwide?) deep divide is to convince people there is no God. Kick God out of man-made politics (after all, it's human property not Gods), kick God out of schools to better indoctrinate youth before they become leaders, kick God out of churches (don't believe the Bible, it's man's understanding that matters), make no room for God anywhere. With God gone, the door of opportunity is wide open for elitist self proclaimed FALSE gods to take their throne. What they fail to grasp is that God will have the last word, PERIOD. Followers of Jesus the Christ stand guilty of apathetic non action in allowing this to develop over hundreds of years. Does God need us to fight His battles? NO! Does God need those who are called by His name to stand for His truths as He gave to us in His Bible? YES! Unfortunately society is mostly Biblically illiterate, including most "Christians". This spiritual divide has become so deep that now any that stand and proclaim God's truth are labeled haters, homophobic, anti-truth, etc.
    God's Word is the only correct word.

  5. Facts: A hate crime was committed.
    Facts: Jussie Smollett was responsible for the hate crime
    Conclusion: Jussie Smollett must be prosecuted to the full extent of the law for this hate crime.

  6. The victim here is "truth".

    In a culture with a broken moral compass truth ceases to be a value. Lies are employed to gain desired results and when they are exposed as lies the liars continue to justify using denial and/or substitution (e.g. "if it’s not true here its true elsewhere". The liar is lionized before his lies are exposed, and again after his lies are exposed because he is "victim" and others are responsible for what he did (he is never responsible...he cannot be blamed...the "hate" of others is what caused him to lie!

    In truth this is the most disgusting form of deception. Using a lie to cause millions of people to join your hatred for someone and do them great harm, while cleverly benefiting personally through the massive sympathetic publicity that is expected to cause others who believe the lie to treat the liar to special privileges he does not deserve.

    This kind of intentional misrepresentation is the epitome of evil. Yes..evil! Only evil can hatch such a devious deceitful strategy that destroys the good in everyone on both sides of the argument and encourages them to hate.

    If 50 million Christians initiated prayers for this deceitful man who hates so much he is willing to create a false harm to hare the object of his hate, while cleverly engineering it to promote his success and riches in the bargain.

    The prayer:

    "Dear Lord Jesus. We pray that Jussie Smollett will come to see the truth that his scheme to build his career by creating a false event that harms those he hates, while also encouraging racism by blaming "whites" for what he paid "blacks" to do” Please Lord...let him see your light of truth and the light of your love which dispels the darkness of evil that has overcome and deceived Jussie Smollett causing him to do evil for personal gain and exercise the hatred he has chosen to embrace”.

    “Please Lord…let that same light of truth shine on the hearts of those in our nation who have embraced hatred that causes them to blame those who disagree with them as haters.”

    If these prayers or prayers like them were to circulate into one hundred million homes in America, then the light of truth which IS the Holy Spirit would be introduced into the minds and hearts of all those who need it most.

    We can plant seed in love…OR…we can stand silently in the face of growing evil because we are afraid to stand proudly and boldly in love for “truth”.

    If I claim to follow Christ by loving others, who is overcome by evil, but stand silently as he/she is overcome by evil because I am afraid to point out the truth to that brother…how can I pretend to be “loving” him/her? Would I stand silent if it was my child who was deceived? Loving the lost means leading them to truth and to Christ, even when there is a price we must pay to do so.

    Do we glorify HIM by facing hardships for boldly standing for truth, or do we instead choose to stand silent and blame God by saying to ourselves “God is in Control”?

    Mark 8:38
    38 If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in his Father's glory with the holy angels."

    Truth is a lonely warrior…


  7. I am sure all of those who vilified President Trump and Vice president Pence are immediate in their apologies. I am also sure they will spend as much time and effort in their apologies as they did in their vilification. Something comes to my mind about rushing to judgement, so I figure it is better to wait until as many facts are available before making judgement in a situation, after all, consider how foolish all of them seem now.

  8. I could list 20 celebrities who have advocated violence against Trump, Pence, conservatives, or those on the right--everything from decapitating Trump in a photo shoot, to killing Trump in a Snoop Dog video, to putting Stephen Miller's head on a spike on the Stephen Cobert's show, and so many more ugly, ugly examples. Do we remember the Trump-like figure executed in Shakespeare in the Park in New York? The left is so verbally violent and then accuses the right of being that way. They need to look in the mirror.
