The notorious hate crime hoaxer Jussie Smollett claims that it’s unfair to compare him to Amari Allen, the Virginia middle school student who confessed earlier this week to making up a story about white classmates coercively cutting her dreadlocks.
In that regard, Smollett may actually have a point as Becket Adams highlights.
Allen at least had the fortitude to apologize for lying.
The hoax that Allen spread received national attention last week after the media found out that Second Lady Karen Pence teaches part-time at the girl’s school, Immanuel Christian in Springfield, Virginia. Journalists saw this as the perfect opportunity to politicize a local story and magnify it in order to tie alleged discrimination to the Trump administration.
This resulted in the New York Times interviewing the 12-year-old and spreading her lies without even bothering to research the facts of the case.
The story immediately went up in flames after the subject was studied further.
Smollett entered the picture when media outlets reported that Allen’s story was a hoax. Then an Instagram account “theshaderoom” post picture of Allen with the headline “Virginia teen who claimed white students cut her dreadlocks reportedly admits to fabricating the story.”
Another Instagram user, Derrick Jackson, followed up by writing that “Jussie really is a trendsetter.”
However, Smollett was not having it and offered his $.02.
“With all due respect brother,” the actor replied, “y’all can clown me all you want, but my story has actually never changed and I haven’t lied about a thing. Y’all can continue to be misinformed, internalized sheep, who believe what actual proven liars feed you or you can read the actual docs.”
Smollett finished off by stating that “Either way, Imma be alright. I know me and what happened. You don’t. So carry on. All love.”
For those with short-term memory, Smollett orchestrated a hate crime against himself cooperating with two Nigerian actors. He went straight to the police to report an incident where two white men with MAGA hats attacked him at 2:00 a.m. in Chicago. The Chicago assailants allegedly recognized him as he was walking home from a local Subway.
Upon careful scrutiny, the assailants turned out to be two Nigerian actors connected to Smollett’s television show. Prosecutors assert that there is an electronic trail of evidence demonstrating that Smollett planned the “hate crime” hoax well in advance.
Once considering all these facts, Smollett is correct in trying to distance himself from Amari Allen’s case.
Allen’s story was not only more plausible, but she at least admitted her wrongdoing unlike Smollett.
Both of these cases demonstrate a victimhood culture that is both promoted in the culture and public policy.
Both Smollett and Allen recognize this, and for that reason, they try to game it.
These won’t be the last of the hate crime hoaxes.
