Najee Ali, the director of Project Islamic HOPE, is pissed at Hate Hoaxer Jussie Smollett. His performance, according to Ali, was dangerous and an insult to actual victims. And he want’s the man Arrested.
“It’s a slap in the face. We have many members of the black community and the LGBTQ community who have been the victims of racism and hate crimes, so for Smollett to say that he was a victim…and we believe is a lie…certainly is an injustice to those true victims…,” Ali said. “Jussie Smollett must be brought to justice for lying.”
“Also, Smollett could have created a race war,” Ali later added. “There are many African Americans and members of the LGBT community who are very upset and outraged by Smollett claiming he was attacked and victimized. So there was some in those communities who are more extreme.”
Knowing the media will sensationalize this, complete with the prerequisite bias without regard to truth, facts, or, consequences, has far-reaching consequences, as does the revelation that this was faked.
Ali is not wrong. Riots or uprisings on college campuses over triggered snowflake fantasies have done harm, real and long term. We need to make sure that people who engage in this are not allowed to walk away without some consequence.
