Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, February 19, 2019

Another clueless reporter is *shocked* that the Jussie Smollett story turned out to be a hoax. There's been much commentary in the past few days about the MSM's lack of critical thinking skills in covering not only the Jussie Smollett "hate crime" fairy tale, but a number of other bogus stories as well.


Alternate links: Google News | Twitter

The "narrative" only seemed "cut-and-dry" to people who were looking at the case through lenses clouded by their anti-Trump bias. It seemed made up to those of us who noticed that Smollett's allegations were outlandish, implausible, and riddled with inconsistencies from the get-go.

It's those people who are vested in the racist narrative. No matter how much evidence that gets put forward that blatant racist attacks like this do not happen, there are those who must keep the narrative going to stay alive or remain relevant in their circle of influence. This actor is one of those.

Why? It's a lot better than buzzfeed and lot of leftist sources. Maybe you should escape your bubble and read some contrary sources now and then.

Because they are so probable.

That's the thing, they are not probable. Hate crimes with violence rarely happen, especially like what this guy alleges happened to him.

Old Chinese curse:"May you live in interesting times". Oh yes everyone who disagrees with me has to be wrong therefore evil, how Juvenal. I have watched the polarization grow for two decades. Do you want to communicate an idea or virtue signal by casting mindless labels. Do you really want to fight? The left reminds me of Charles and his Caviler court going up against a bunch of Round heads led by some bible thumper named Cromwell. You might like to know how that turned out.
