A sexually confused, perceptually warped human being, who has grown up within a confused, warped society lied for personal gain. Playing on the currents reverberating throughout society.
Is anyone surprised this sort of thing happens all the time? Jews do it by painting swastikas on their own doors/schools. Women do it all the time with fake rape allegations/divorce-excuses/lies-in-court. Governments do it more than anyone else. Mainstream news does this as much as the government does.
When role models do it, is it any wonder others will do it too? Who gets the label 'successful'? Who becomes a role model? Have the successful people acquired that "success" legitimately? Do people care how it was acquired? Do they see the lies and manipulations that were required to gain wealth and power? A society that lies to itself, will only breed more lies.
Shit happens, but not all shit is the same. There are cruel people. There are liars. There is resentment. There are head games. Ignorance can produce scarcity. Scarcity can be reduced with knowledge and application of that knowledge. Desperation for the basics of survival and that which leads to abundance can be dealt with, with real attention, concentration, and effort. Fair exchanges.
This is another lesson for the human specie.
I see the same thing with cops. They're in such a dangerous job, they say. Yet, if you put yourself into a situation whereby you end up abusing and stealing from the people that you claim to protect and serve, the very same people that are taxed to pay your salary, I think you are an idiot or full of shit. You are lying to yourself and everyone else. When you don't arrest corrupt cops, lawyers, judges, politicians, and then protect them, you have become the problem.
When government lies and the mainstream sells that lie, and taxes by the barrel of a gun are used to limit the populations freedom, and/or kill the population, they are lying to themselves and everyone else.
When mainstream calls out the lies and behavior of individuals or a select few in government and finance, but fails to note the common thread of corruption within their own ranks and their support of all the other crap going on, they are lying to themselves and everyone else. Controlled opposition, is a zionist tactic.
Individual corruption begets more individual corruption.
Societal corruption begets more societal corruption.
When I point my finger to lay blame on another, there are three more fingers pointing back at me.
Chicago PD Superintendent Rips "Despicable" Jussie Smollett In Fiery Press Conference | Zero Hedge
Update2: A visibly angry Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson kicked off the Jussie Smollett presser with a scathing admonishment of the Empire star.
"I just wish that the families of gun violence in this city got this much attention, because that's who really deserves the amount of attention that we're giving to this particular incident," Johnson began.
Johnson confirmed that Smollett staged the hate crime after a letter he sent to himself did not have the intended effect.
"This stunt was orchestrated by Smollett because he was dissatisfied with his salary so he concocted a story about being attacked," said Johnson, who added "This publicity stunt is a scar this city didnít deserve."
"Why would anyone, especially an African American man, use the symbolism of a noose to make false accusations?"
It was also revealed that more than 50 search warrants have been executed in the investigation.
Johnson also said that the Chicago PD has phone records which prove that Smollett and the brothers he paid to stage the attack were in communication before and after the attack, as well as while the brothers were outside of the country.
Update: Watch the Chicago PD press conference on the Smollett arrest:
Empire actor Jussie Smollett surrendered himself to authorities Thursday morning after 5 a.m., after Chicago PD charged him with one count of felony disorderly conduct for filing a false police report connected with a hate-crime hoax, reports ABC 7 Chicago.

"Jussie Smollet [sic] is under arrest and in custody of detectives," tweeted Chicago PD spokesman Anthony Guglielmi.
Chicago PD will conduct a press conference at 9 a.m., while Smollett is expected in bond court at 1:30 p.m. Thursday where a judge will formally read the charge against Smollett before he will be released. He will return to court at a later date to enter his plea.
The actor faces up to three years in prison and substantial crimes if convicted of the Class-4 felony.
Smollett claimed he was the victim of a predawn hate crime on January 27, in which he says two men assaulted him while he was on his way home after buying a sandwich; hurling racial and antigay slurs at him, dousing him in a liquid, placing a noose around his neck (which he was still wearing when police arrived later that morning), and punching him in the face.
The incident sparked national outrage - with the left-leaning mainstream media and prominent Democrats uncritically supporting Smollett's version of events; holding it up as a prime example of violent Donald Trump supporters.
Then - two suspects in the case, Nigerian-American brothers Ola and Abel Osundario - one of whom has been an extra on Empire, told police that Smollett paid them $3,500 each in total to stage the "attack," and that the three of them had practiced it beforehand. They also said that Smollett was involved in creating a racist letter containing a white substance that was sent to the actor on the Chicago set of Empire. When the letter failed to achieve the desired level of national outrage, the Osundario brothers say Smollett concocted the hate-crime.
Of note, police recovered a magazine and handwriting samples during a raid last week on a home shared by the brothers.
the attorney representing the brothers, Gloria Schmidt, said they testified in front of a grand jury for hours Thursday and said Smollett needs to come clean about what really happened.
"I think that Jussie's conscience is probably not letting him sleep right now, so I think he should unload that conscience and just come out and tell the American people what actually happened," Schmidt. -ABC 7
Smollett's high-powered attorneys fired back, saying in a statement: "Like any other citizen, Mr. Smollett enjoys the presumption of innocence, particularly when there has been an investigation like this one where information, both true and false, has been repeatedly leaked. Given these circumstances, we intend to conduct a thorough investigation and to mount an aggressive defense."
According to CBS, "About a dozen search warrants have now been issued, including ones for Smollettís financial and phone records, and detectives are waiting for those records to come back."
Meanwhile, the FBI and US Postal Inspection Service are investigating the letter, sent to the Empire studio on Jan. 22, and whether Smollett was behind it as the Osundario brothers allege.
Wednesday evening ABC7 Eyewitness News obtained surveillance video of the Osundairo brothers linked to the reported attack from a beauty supply shop. The video shows the brothers purchasing items possibly used in the case.
Employees at Beauty House in Chicago's Uptown neighborhood said the brothers came to the business the day before the alleged attack. The store is a little more than a mile from their apartment, and a security guard said he remembers the siblings because they purchased ski masks. -ABC 7
Sources say that the brothers bought the rope used in the incident at the Crafty Beaver Hardware Store in the Ravenswood neighborhood during the weekend of Jan. 25.
Chicago PD confirmed the authenticity of the surveillance video, which shows the nervous brothers purchasing several items - including a red baseball cap, ski masks and gloves.
The brother asked security guard Montago Silas if the store sold ski masks, however the business did not have the traditional balaclava-type mask, according to ABC 7. Silas thought it was strange that the bought them anyway.
"It was bizarre because it was unusual for people to purchase these type of masks, not since the 70s, but I thought it was a little strange," he said.
Surveillance video shows the brothers leaving the store, getting into a silver two-door coup and then driving away. Smollett reported the attack hours later.
Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx recused herself from the case, her office told ABC News on Tuesday "out of an abundance of caution."
"Shortly after the incident occurred in late January, State's Attorney Foxx had conversations with a family member of Jussie Smollett about the incident and their concerns, and facilitated a connection to the Chicago Police Department who were investigating the incident. Based on those prior conversations and out of an abundance of caution, last week State's Attorney Foxx decided to remove herself from the decision making in this matter and delegated it to her First Assistant Joseph Magats, a 28-year veteran prosecutor," reads a statement from Foxx's office.
Will prominent liberals delete their tweets of support for Jussie after using the incident as a political cudgel?
Note the New York Times' tweet in Biden's which uncritically accepts Smollet's account.
Of course, those who were so quick to judge Trump supporters now want to respect due process.
