Kamala Harris Refuses To Blame Jussie Smollett For His Crimes

Becca Reese

Kamala Harris has put forth an insipid and wholly predictable response to the expected revelation that Jussie Smollett perpetrated a massively hurtful, despicable race crime hoax. Instead of apologizing to the millions she implicated as being tacitly responsible for this "crime" vis a vis Trump and support of him (and yeah, we all know exactly what she was implying), she wrote this rambling tweet which spends more time blaming Trump and his supporters (because yeah, we all know exactly what she is implying), than the gay, black man who constructed a hoax crime not seen since Tawana Brawley.

Kamala, I'm "sad, frustrated and disappointed" that you jumped on the bandwagon and lashed out calling this a "modern-day lynching" to gin up your anti-lynching legislation. I'm further all of those things because you not only refuse to show any remorse for your bigotry and sense of moral superiority, but you refuse to hold Smollett singularly responsible for his crimes.


"At the same time"...forget everything Kamala says before this, and read what she really wants to say after this. That "eraser" phrase releases Smollett of his responsibility and his crimes, after all, what we MUST do is "speak the truth".

Whatever that now meaningless term means.


You see, it's simply not Jussie's fault and we should divert our attention away from his crimes and get back to focusing on the message of victimhood.

Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris released a statement Thursday evening about the arrest of “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett. Smollett was charged with disorderly conduct for filing a false police report after allegedly orchestrating a fake hate crime last month.

“Like most of you, I’ve seen the reports about Jussie Smollett, and I’m sad, frustrated, and disappointed. When anyone makes false claims to police, it not only diverts resources away from serious investigations but it makes hit more difficult for other victims of chimer to come forward,” her statement began. “At the same time, we must speak the truth: hate crimes are on the rise in America.”

A statement from Smollett's camp Thursday evening emphasized that he maintains his innocence. Are you going to do what the Dems did to Kavanaugh? Say he's guilty while he says he's innocent? Food for thought.


Harris is simply saying that situations like these often mean that people become less serious about racial allegations. Whether he ends up being guilty or not, don't let this one mean that future allegations are not taken seriously.

In Harris' statement released after Smollett's arrest, the senator wrote, "We must speak the truth: hate crimes are on the rise in America. Just last year, the FBI released statistics that revealed a 17 percent increase in the number of hate crimes in America. Part of the tragedy of this situation is that it distracts from that truth, and has been seized by some who would like to dismiss and downplay the very real problems that we must address. We should not allow that."

"I will always condemn racism and homophobia. We must always confront hate directly, and we must always seek justice," Harris continued. "That is what I will keep fighting for."

As Twitchy reported earlier, Sen. Kamala Harris ignored questions about Jussie Smollett’s arrest this morning after she dined with the Rev. Al “Tawana Told The Truth” Sharpton, which seemed odd, considering how quickly she had jumped on the story of his “attack” when it broke, calling it “a modern-day lynching.”

Presidential candidate Harris on Thursday evening released a statement on the Smollett arrest, and she actually got off to a pretty good start. But then she added, “At the same time …” and ruined it.

So successful, famous, gay black actor Jussie Smollett allegedly has to pay two brothers to stage a hate attack, even though Harris seems pretty much convinced he would have been attacked eventually by MAGA hat wearing thugs. We wonder who she means when she says part of the tragedy is some “seizing” on the hoax to downplay our very real problems.

You know, that reminds us of Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, also a 2020 candidate, who bought into “Mattress Girl” Emma Sulkowicz’s rape hoax and invited her to the State of the Union Address, and then responded to the “Rolling Stone” gang rape hoax by saying that rape hoaxes might shine “more of a spotlight on the problem.”

I read other forums too, liberal conclusion on Smollett case in general is - ''imagine how badly he was hurt and oppressed and for how long to protest this way''. HOAX crimes are a form of protest from now on, I guess.

I am not surprised with Kamala's reaction at all. Smollett is not convicted yet, but all the facts are on the table verified by police, unlike Kavanaugh's case where conviction came fore the crime based only on Two Doors Ford's story from decades ago.

Smollett case shows that liberals will protect their own no matter what crime they commit. It's gonna cost Kamala dearly. I am surprised that doesn't realize it.

What was that someone said about Al Sharpton?


From FOAS's new thread:

Al Sharpton said that “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett should face severe consequences if the truth ultimately shows he fabricated or staged the hate crime assault he says occurred in Chicago last month.

“If it is found that Smollett and these gentlemen did in some way perpetrate something that is not true, they ought to face accountability to the maximum,” the MSNBC host and civil rights leader said during a Sunday airing of his program “Politics Nation.”

Of course not. I don't believe any other media hack, Hollywood elite or politician has called on Smollett to be a man and apologize.

What's the deal with this guy, Smollet is it? I'd never heard of him. He's a nobody. He isn't a politician who, when the politician lies, it can affect the entire world. So, get a clue. I don't give a rats @ss what this guy has done. It sure doesn't mean much in the scheme of things, IMO, as there are people in this country, who most people have heard of and who have power over others, who have done far worse.

I really don't understand why anyone, the press, the media, HT posters go on and on about it. There are a lot more important things that need attention in this country.

Most of all, blame Jussie for turning up the volume when his hoax letter didn't garner national attention. He had to resort to what he knew the MSM and Democrats wouldn't be able to help themselves but to bite.

"Sources on the 'Empire' set tell us the cast and crew were waiting at least 30 minutes for Jussie to begin the scheduled scene. When he eventually showed his face he was very emotional, and surrounded by his family," says a report from TMZ.

Smollett apparently told the cast: "I’m sorry I’ve put you all through this and not answered any calls. I wanted to say I’m sorry and, you know me, I would never do this to any of you, you are my family. I swear to God, I did not do this."

Smollett then reportedly left the set. According to TMZ sources, "it was obvious Jussie had been crying a lot, so producers said he would have to come back later. He did, and we're told he is currently shooting the scene."

This chickie wants to be prez yet isn't taking the Smollett hoax seriously.

It's not just about Smollett wasting Chi PD time and money, but US Federal Agencies - the FBI and US Postal Service - that she would be in charge of.

Something about the envelope must have raised concerns. Smollett would
later tell police that he and Empire’s executive producer donned gloves
before they opened it and exposed themselves to a threat letter covered
in white powder. Police logged the time as 2:30 p.m.

The powder was later determined to be crushed Tylenol, according to reports....

As Smollett reported the attack to police, a multi-agency federal
investigation into the source of the threat letter was entering its
seventh day.

Headed by the FBI’s Chicago Field Office, the terroristic threat
investigation is being assisted by one of America’s oldest and most
underestimated law enforcement agencies: The United States Postal
Inspection Service
.

http://www.cwbchicago.com/2019/02/smollett-threat-letter-called-enormous.html

So as prez would she dismiss what happened cuz he's gay and black and tell the FBI/USPS to back off from investigations?

Smollett is in a lot more trouble than the MSM is letting on. Once the Feds get a hold of him... buh bye.

As said so many times here on HT "you don't get to tell me what words to say" or "put words in my mouth". The rest is just BS editorializing. Have at it.

“Like most of you, I’ve seen the reports about Jussie Smollett, and
I’m sad, frustrated, and disappointed. When anyone makes false claims to
police, it not only diverts resources away from serious investigations
but it makes hit more difficult for other victims of chimer to come

truth: hate crimes are on the rise in America.”

Nothing wrong with Harris' comments in my view. She can't say he is guilty but she certainly made it clear she is annoyed and frustrated by what he did. I think her reference to hate crimes was because there is a worry that this stupid man's actions will cause other complaints to be dismissed.

At least she commented.... has Trump spoken yet about the domestic terrorist with a hit list of the people Trump regularly goes after in anger and contempt? Do you suppose he has contacted them directly to express his disgust ? You know like he did when Clinton, CNN and other "enemies" of his had pipe bombs delivered to them.......oh wait

Let's be clear about what Kamala Harris tweeted on Jan. 29:

Jussie Smollett is one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know. I’m praying for his quick recovery.

This was an attempted modern day lynching. No one should have to fear for their life because of their sexuality or color of their skin. We must confront this hate.

To which Becca claims:

Instead of apologizing to the millions she implicated as being tacitly responsible for this "crime".....

Now let's be clear about what Becca is doing. Based solely on this tweet, she's attempting to label Harris as a bigot against whites, a political hit job a la dirty tricksters Roger Stone and Karl Rove. This is the first shot of many to come as she tries to build her case that Harris is a bigot. Problem is, at the time of her tweet, the only known information was that he had been attacked, a substance poured on him, and a rope placed around his neck. No information had been released about the attackers yelling "This is MAGA country." So who are these millions Harris implicated? The truth is Kamala Harris implicated no one and she has nothing to apologize for.

It's funny that Becca didn't post all of Harris' second tweet, which was in the Daily Caller article. Maybe she doesn't want you to know the statistics of the rise in hate crimes in Trump's America.

I too have to agree with her statement because it has little to do with her justifying what he did but expressing the truth that he hurt others who will or have been attacked in various ways but will now be disbelieved because of his actions. Anyone that does not believe hate crimes of all types are on the rise in this country is simply living under a very large boulder. It does not matter if the hate crimes are race, religion, or political party there are more of them since Trump decided to run and made it plain that he accepts that type of behavior.

None of the names most mentioned--not only because I wouldn't want to see them as president, but because I don't think they'll be particulary successful candidates, the starting gate is a little embarrassing. Much like the Repubicans with all those high hopes for the 2016 election and a lot of them got taken to the woodshed, so to speak, by rejection of the electorate.


There are several younger democrats that look interesting that could be a dark horse and appeal to more independents and even some republicans, but I don't know of any that have enough experience or name recognition to beat out the money behind the candidates that already have plans to crowd out anyone else.

But who knows, Barack Obama didn't have any credible accomplishments in life, just a good backstory at the right place at the right time and people who put their money on him, primarily to stop Hilary.


SO anything's possible. Even Biden, who I used to like he's okay, I just don't see getting in and winning. If one of the known candidates or likely candidates wind up winning the election, I guess he'd be least objectionable to me.

I was raised by a pack of wild corn dogs.

That is actually funny.

Trump didn't (and doesn't) just "accept" racist behavior, he promotes it. And he's done it more than a "few" times.

That rhetoric isn't working anymore no matter how loud the lefties get.

Listen (up to 19:30) & learn what a growing number of black Americans are saying:

None of the names most mentioned--not only because I wouldn't want to see them as president, but because I don't think they'll be particulary successful candidates, the starting gate is a little embarrassing. Much like the Repubicans with all those high hopes for the 2016 election and a lot of them got taken to the woodshed, so to speak, by rejection of the electorate.


There are several younger democrats that look interesting that could be a dark horse and appeal to more independents and even some republicans, but I don't know of any that have enough experience or name recognition to beat out the money behind the candidates that already have plans to crowd out anyone else.

But who knows, Barack Obama didn't have any credible accomplishments in life, just a good backstory at the right place at the right time and people who put their money on him, primarily to stop Hilary.

I agree with all that, but I'm still waiting to see if MO joins in the fray. Does anyone know when the last date to enter is?

She’s not.

So do you think she's waiting for 2024 when she can at least have a chance?

If Kamala Harris is such a non-threat in 2020, why are Trump supporters so invested in attacking her every word and action?
