Not cool.

Published

Benton Blount, a finalist on “America’s Got Talent,” says he was kicked off a tour opening up for ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons after he posted a selfie on Facebook wearing a red MAGA hat. In the photo he was also sporting an “I voted” sticker and holding a Chick-fil-A sandwich and drink.

The caption for the post read, “Someone reading this just got offended multiple times. My work here is done! #Vote.”

Blount said he drove from Greenville, South Carolina, to Atlanta for last Wednesday night’s show and learned he was no longer on the bill, the News said, adding that Blount was four shows into a seven-show slot opening for Gibbons.

A spokesman for Gibbons’ tour said Blount was “disinvited to continue the tour because of a creative decision,” WHNS-TV reported. Blount told the News he didn’t speak to Gibbons directly.

Blount also said his post earned him a temporary ban from Facebook because it violated “community standards.”

He added to the paper that he often shares politically themed memes and takes part in “poking fun at politics” on his podcast page but that the photo in question was posted on his personal Facebook page.

“It’s getting ridiculous,” Blount lamented on a video he recorded for fans Wednesday. He added that “all this nonsense needs to stop. … just the fact that you can’t share your opinion anymore without a either social media site taking it down and making you look like a villain when you just said ‘I voted’ all the way to your career being affected …”

It’s a sad state of affairs when your political ideology can get you booted from your job, all because folks at the top don’t like where you stand. We all, as fully functioning adults, should be able to stand up boldly for what we believe is right, to speak our minds freely, especially when what is said is harmless, without fear.

Unfortunately, thanks largely to the advent of social media, that is no longer the case.

One has to wonder if perhaps the best thing about social media, everyone having a voice, is also what is the worst thing about it too?

Actor’s Hate Hoax Planned After Previous Propaganda Effort Was Panned

It is only with the sharpest of hatreds that someone could stitch together a diabolic piece of propaganda such as this.

Published

on

Jussie Smollett

There are very, very few things in this world that are more despicable than hate crimes or hate speech, but faking one for attention is certainly on that short, short list.

That’s exactly what actor Jussie Smollett is being accused of this week after police interrogated two extras from the set of Empire, who claim that the actor paid them a significant amount of money to “attack” him, yelling racial and homophobic slurs.

Smollett’s credibility is falling apart, and police would like to have another word with the actor ASAP.

Now, evidence of Smollett’s premeditation is coming to light, and it doesn’t look good for the Fox actor.

Empire actor Jussie Smollett “concocted” a “staged attacked” against himself after receiving a racist letter addressed to him failed to evoke a “bigger reaction,” a source tells CBS 2.

“When the letter didn’t get enough attention, he concocted the staged attack,” one source told CBS 2’s Brad Edwards, who reported “other sources corroborated that information.”

A letter contained “white powder” was delivered on January 22 to a Chicago set where Empire was filming in the days leading up to the alleged staged assault. In a statement to CNN, Chicago police spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi confirmed a HAZMAT team scrambled to Cinespace Studios, where the program was being shot, after the letter was found.

It is only with the sharpest of hatreds that someone could stitch together a diabolic piece of propaganda such as this, and Smollett’s future in the industry isn’t looking too good.

MAGA Hoaxer Could Face Serious Jail Time for Fake Hate Crime

And the liberals use to call *us* deplorable?!

Published

on

MAGA

The lengths to which the liberal left will go in order to disparate President Donald Trump have been disturbing, to say the least.

We have seen no shortage of wild and violent attempts to disparage The Donald.  What began with Kathy Griffin’s insane decapitation photoshoot has morphed into very real violence, and very fake news.

The latest attempt by Hollywood to delegitimize the President comes to us from Empire actor Jussie Smollett, who police now believe paid two actors to “assault” him, while shouting slogans tied to President Trump.

Smollett is claiming to have no foreknowledge of the attack, but police aren’t convinced.  Their investigation into the incident has revealed that the Nigerian brothers who claim Smollett put them up to it even tried to drum up the anti-MAGA hat tropes as well.

Documents prove two Nigerian brothers who work as extras on the highly rated Fox drama bought the rope which was found around Smollett’s neck at Crafty Beaver Hardware Store in Chicago.

The brothers made the purchase on the weekend of January 25.

They also bought two red plain hats that they wore during the alleged attack, according to sources close to the investigation.

Police believe that the red hats were purchased at a local beauty supply store in the Uptown section of Chicago.

Thanks to his deliberate and deceitful act, Smollett could find himself behind bars for a substantial amount of time.

Filing a false report to police in the State of Illinois is considered an act of disorderly conduct, which is a Class 4 felony.

That means that anyone found guilty could face between one and three years in prison.

By law, the crime of disorderly conduct is committed in Illinois by anyone who ‘transmits or causes to be transmitted in any manner to any peace officer, public officer or public employee a report to the effect that an offense will be committed, is being committed, or has been committed, knowing at the time of the transmission that there is no reasonable ground for believing that the offense will be committed, is being committed, or has been committed.’

Chicago Police have indicated a desire to re-interview Smollett regarding the incident.
