Smollett Sues Chicago

The discovery on this one should be fun.

Former “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett has filed a counter lawsuit against the city of Chicago, claiming that authorities “maliciously” prosecuted him after he claimed he was attacked by two masked assailants in January.

The lawsuit, filed by Smollett’s attorneys in the Northern District of Illinois on Tuesday, claims that the city of Chicago “maliciously” prosecuted Smollett “in bad faith” and filed criminal charges against him “without probable cause.”

    Typical liberal….maintain the fake hoax of racism until the bitter end.

    I am shocked by lack of disgust and denouncement by lefties of this pathetic, unrepentant, evil.

  2. jjf

    He’s just trying to hurt your delicate daisy feelings, and it’s an achievement, like you say, Kevin.  What Would Jesus Do?

  3. Kevin Scheunemann


    If Jussie was repentant….

    Jesus would forgive, and tell him to “go and sin no more”

    Jussie is not repentant so Jesus would attempt to correct his unrepentance. “Brood of vipers” would be one of the terms he would use.

    When will you denounce this awful lie and behavior which was a gross affront and insult to Trump supporters?

    Crickets against this evil is what I here from liberals.

  4. jjf

    That’s it Kevin, let the hate flow through you…

  5. Kevin Scheunemann


    Not hate, just want a correction to awful behavior.

    You are fine with people, like Jussie, to continue to be so despicable?

    He literally framed Trump supporters, when it turns out he kicked his own butt for selfish publicity.

    You defend that?

  6. jjf

    I’m far more calm than you apparently.  There are all sorts of crazy crimes in this world, some also followed by crazy lawsuits.  It’s not my job to declare them all awful and despicable.  I’m not defending him.

  7. Kevin Scheunemann


    So why do you have moral cowardice on this?

    If we can’t agree that what Jussie did here was despicable and his lawsuit is equally as despicable, then we have lost the ability to have a civil society.

    This is a very easy issue to have moral clarity on,but liberals continue to support him in their cowardice by not callng him out for being reprehensible.

    It would be the same if you pointed out an actual incident of racism, but in a case like that, I would agree it is bad and the criminal should be punished.

    Why can’t you do that here?

    What Jussie did hurt the Black and other minority communities very hard.
    With so many false claims of racial hatred made by minorities, you now have to take every claim with a grain of salt and be skeptical about every claim, even if the claim is legitimate.
    If anything, there should be a class action suit against Jussie for the dame he caused.

  9. Kevin Scheunemann



    Liberals are so invested in their hate of Trump supporters, they protect racist hoaxes like this as no big deal.

    The sick liberal attitude is ” You Trump supporters are all racists, so this hoax just exposes who you are.”

    That is why Jussie gets away with it, and libs like JJF just ignore the hoax because it serves their underlying hate of Trump supporters. Basic Right and wrong no longer make a difference in their tribalism.

    This is a foundational sign our Republic is falling apart because of liberal godless morality unraveling basic right and wrong.

  10. jjf

    Of course there will be false claims and faked supposed crimes.  They are rare.  The real ones are far more common.  I’m far more worried about the real ones, the real racist policies and the real racist beliefs and the real crimes motivated by racial hate.

    What Smollett did doesn’t “damage” the real events, does it?  It doesn’t invalidate anyone else’s injustice.

    I didn’t know who Smollett was before this, and I don’t know him now.

  11. Kevin Scheunemann


    But are you denouncing Jussie here? And his ongoing reprehensible lawsuit?

    Racial hoaxes are far more prevalent than real racism. Hoaxes are a liberal racket for money and a cause.

  12. jjf

    I look forward to Kevin’s new book, “Racial Hoaxes Are Far More Prevalent Than Real Racism.”

    Anyone here care to agree with him?

  13. Mar

    jjf, I agree there are probably more real cases of racism still than fake cases. That was not my point, however.
    The point is that you have to question mote intently all cases of racism to make sure the accusations are legitimate. If you don’t question all acts of racism, you will look very foolish when the fake ones do occur

  14. Kevin Scheunemann


    They are idiots and deserve to be EXPELLED, at a minimum.   They are reprehensible and if we can throw them in jail, we should.

    I did not comment on it here because it was not a blog post.   I did read it yesterday.


    Now, can we get some admission of denouncement of Jussie’s awful behavior from you?

  15. Le Roi du Nord

    Bravo, you (only after prodding) admit that there are real situations of racist activity. You should be congratulated.  Interesting standard you have; not commenting on actual accounts because they weren’t “a blog post”, but relying on questionable and certainly biased sources yourself.

    Regarding Smollett, there are several legal actions in play right now.  It would be ill advised of me (and you as well) to assume anything until the court(s) makes a decision.  That’s the way lawsuits work.

  16. Kevin Scheunemann


    Then I withdraw my assertion about UW students.

    It will be ill advised of me to say anything against the poor students until all facts have come out and ruled out it being a hoax perpetrated by minority liberal activists like Jussie.”

    See how easy it is to play this game of selective/relavitist morality?

    In Jussie’s case we have two paid thugs that admit Jussie paid them to kick his own butt, how much more evidence do you need to take a moral stand?

    Awful. Just awful.

  17. Le Roi du Nord

    There is no lawsuit in EC as of yet.  And what a great flippity-flop.  I’ve seen jellyfish with more spine.

  18. Kevin Scheunemann

    I haven’t flipped.

    Just simulating your disgusting position.

  19. Le Roi du Nord

    I’m watching over acres of balsam and Popple with the wind in my face and the river at my back, so I doubt you are simulating anything near that. Try again.
