I knew the MAGA attack against Jussie Smollett was some ol' bullshit, not because Smollett is teh ghey, and I'm not bothered by the idea of teh ghey guys being viciously assaulted, called out of their names and doused with bleach by smirking MAGA teens, but because it was obviously a lie from jump.
It didn't make sense that violent, racist homophobes would even know who Jussie Smollett was and track him down to Chicago, where he was walking home from a Subway at 2 AM, when it was like -24 degrees out. That's entirely too cold to be putting a shoe on someone; I don't care how gay he is.
9 times out of 10, when a teh ghey guy is viciously beaten in a homophobic attack, it's because the attacker himself is teh ghey, and in denial, and takes out his frustration on the victim, or because the victim tried to pull some teh ghey shit on a straight guy who don't play that shit.
Not saying the latter is justified. Just saying.
A straight guy wouldn't just randomly beat up a teh ghey guy, if only because what if he lost, and the victim had his way with him? Or he won, and the victim bled out? Try explaining that one at the free clinic!
I had similar concerns when I heard a Muslim guy shot up the Pulse night club. What true Muslim could even make it past that parking lot? Long time readers will recall that I was the first person to call that one, even before the FBI. If I wasn't the very first person to call BS on this Smollett story (I wrote about it in Life in a Shanty Town a few weeks ago), it's only because who has the time these days?
