"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.
