Smollett Case Not Over

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY FEBRUARY 25, 2019

         THE JUSSIE SMOLLETT AFFAIR IS NOT OVER. THE PREVIOUSLY OBSCURE ACTOR ON THE FOX SHOW “EMPIRE” HAS BEEN CHARGED WITH A CLASS FOUR FELONY FOR ALLEGEDLY LYING ABOUT AN ATTACK ON HIMSELF THAT INCLUDED RACIST AND HOMOPHOBIC SLURS. THE CHICAGO POLICE SAY IT WAS ALL STAGED AND THE POLLICE COMMISSIONER, EDDIE JOHNSON, WHO IS BLACK, DELIVERED A SCATHING VERBAL INDICTMENT OF SMOLLETT FOR EMPLOYING A NOOSE, WHICH TO JOHNSON AND MANY OTHERS SYMBOLISE LYNCHINGS OF ANOTHER ERA.

         SMOLLETT’S HIGH-PROCED LAWYERS ARE ACCUSING JOHNSON OF MISHANDLING THE CASE. SMOLLETT IS BACK AT WORK ON THE SET PENDING A DECISION BY FOX ON HIS FUTURE.

         SENATOR AND PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE KAMALA HARRIS, WHO INITIALLY ISSUED A STATEMENT CHARACTERIZING THE ALLEGED ATTACK AS SYMBOLIC OF MODERN AMERICA, ISSUED ANOTHER STATEMENT LAST THURSDAY THAT WAS PATHETIC. SHE DIDN’T APOLOGIZE FOR HER RUSH TO JUDGMENT AND TRIED TO MAKE A CASE THAT DESPITE THE FACTS, RACISM AND HOMOPHOBIA ARE STILL PROBLEMS.

         LIKE THE O.J. SIMPSION CASE, SOME PEOPLE ARE BEYOND CONVINCING. THIS IS THE REAL STATE OF AMERICA IN THE AGE OF SOCIAL MEDIA AND ANYTHING GOES. I’M CAL THOMAS.
