Jussie Smollett Nominated for NAACP Award Days After Escaping Prosecution for Hate Hoax

The actor is being nominated for the 2019 NAACP Image Awards.

Jussie Smollett was spared prosecution for orchestrating a hate hoax on account of his insider connections earlier this week, and now it appears the Chicago actor is swiftly pivoting from being bailed out by his elite progressive friends to being openly lauded by them.

Smollett has been nominated for Best Supporting Actor in the 2019 NAACP Image Awards, an event taking place this Saturday. Individuals associated with the event, such as “Black-ish” actor Anthony Anderson, have stated they not only hope Smollett attends the event, but goes on to win the award, merely days after escaping accountability for planning the hoax.

Nominees were announced in February, before Smollett claimed to have been attacked by white ‘MAGA’ bandits at three in the morning in the streets of Chicago. Smollett was actually ‘attacked’ by two Nigerian brothers with whom he had worked with, and paid them $3,500 beforehand.

When speaking to USA Today, Anderson stated he hoped Smollett would win the award, in the belief that he was being unfairly railroaded by the criminal justice system.

I hope he wins. I’m happy for him that the system worked for him in his favor because the system isn’t always fair, especially for people of color. So I’m glad it worked out for him.

While Smollett’s cakewalk in the justice system did in fact demonstrate that the criminal justice system is not fair, it do so in the reverse manner from which Anderson claims. The Chicago Police and even the City’s mayor expressed their opposition to the decision by the State’s Attorney to let Smollett off with nothing more than 18 hours of community service, citing the massive evidence they had demonstrating that Smollett orchestrated the hoax.

Instead of punishment for his own actions, Smollett will receive congratulations and praise from cultural progressives. Perhaps he’ll even be the recipient of a new category of award at the event- “Best Hoax.”

Expert Witness Who Testified Against Harvey Weinstein in His Criminal Trial is Hit by Car

Published

on

A forensic pathologist who gave critical testimony during the criminal case of Hollywood sex pervert Harvey Weinstein was hit by a car in recent days, LawandCrime.com has discovered.

Dr. Barbara Ziv is currently in the hospital following the attack with no other details about the situation currently known. She talked about “rape myths” during her testimony at the trial on behalf of the prosecution, blowing many holes through Weinstein’s defense

“Many individuals who are sexually assaulted will tell somebody: a friend. Not everybody, but many,” Ziv testified at the trial in January. “Very few people then will report to a doctor or a counselor or a spiritual advisor, and then the next level is to law enforcement — and even fewer report to law enforcement.”

“As devastating as sexual assault is, most individuals think, ‘Ok, I can put it behind me. I can move on with my life. I don’t want it to get worse. I don’t want this person who sexually assaulted me to ruin my friendships or put my job in jeopardy. I am just going to put it in a box and forget what happened. I don’t want it to get worse,’” Ziv said while appearing in court. “But they can’t.”

“Sometimes women will have subsequent contact with the perpetrator because they can’t really believe that this happened to them,” she added. “They’re hoping that this is just an aberration. You hear that all the time.” Ziv claimed during the trial that it is a myth that “one can determine whether somebody has been raped by their behavior.”

There is no evidence that Dr. Ziv, who also gave testimony during the Bill Cosby trial, was struck in retaliation for giving testimony damning to Weinstein. However, there is a long history of Weinstein exerting intimidation, including levying alleged threats and having individuals followed in order to keep those who may expose his illicit behavior from talking.

Intrepid journalist Ronan Farrow, who has blown the lid off of many Hollywood sex scandals, once said he feared for his safety while writing an exposé of Weinstein.

“I don’t make light of the fact that it was frightening to be in the crosshairs of that,” Farrow said. “I mean, there were times when I feared for my safety and, you know, my sources were telling me to get a gun and I moved out of my apartment.”

Weinstein was not able to escape justice, despite being protected by the entertainment industry for decades. He was found guilty of third-degree rape and other sex crimes in the court of law on Monday. He is scheduled to face another trial in California on different sex crime charges.

Big League Politics will provide updates on Ziv’s condition and the circumstances of her “accident” as the details emerge.
