How To Fake A Hate Crime And Get Away With It

How To Fake A Hate Crime And Get Away With It — Lessons for Jussie Smollett and the Left. By Daniel Greenfield (Frontpage Magazine).

To those who have not read Daniel Greenfield, Wentworthmaven believes he is one of the best conservative writers of our day. I actually had the pleasure of meeting him recently in Los Angeles.

Greenfield posits:

Why did Jussie Smollett do it?” a thousand anxiously clueless progressives ask. To paraphrase Willie Sutton, because that’s where the money is.

Smollett’s Undoing:

The worst possible place to fake a hate crime is in an African-American city. Black cops don’t suffer from white guilt and have very little patience for fake racist hate crimes.”

Smollett’s Further Mistake:

The best place in America to fake a hate crime is still a campus. That’s why hate crime hoaxes occur most frequently on college campuses where they’re usually treated as victimless crimes.

The Entertainment Value – Political Theatre:

It’s not surprising that a celebrity would have executed a hate crime hoax. The primary motivation for hate crime hoaxes is political narcissism.”

The Left in Western culture today has little left in its arsenal to fling the way of the realists. As such, they hitch their wagon to what many have monikered, “The Grievance Industrial Complex”. A perfect marriage between Marxist/Leninist doctrine, the “Fake News Media” and the second tier minions who benefit from it financially. The Smolletts of the world have an absolute need for attention via the theatrical — a perfect melange of the Left’s ideology and Hollywood. (I know, I grew up in it!)
