Smollett Nominated for NAACP Award — Seriously, Not Satire
"I hope he wins. I'm happy for him that the system worked in his favor."
From the “life imitates art imitates life imitates art” ad nauseam file, when I read this headline — “Jussie Smollett is nominated for NAACP Image Award” — I thought it had to be satire, but noooo.
Two days after Smollett walked free on 16 felony counts related to his January hoax hate crime — with no guilty plea — he is still claiming he was the victim of a racist attack by two white MAGA-hat wearing Trump supporters. Of course the NAACP is all about “victimhood.”
If you ever needed evidence that the NAACP is a race-bait charade run by hoax and scam hustlers, look no further than this award nomination.
Six-time host of Saturday’s black-only awards ceremony, “Black-ish” star Anthony Anderson, said, “I hope he wins. I’m happy for him that the system worked in his favor… So I’m glad it worked out for him.” Yeah, “the system” definitely “worked in his favor.”
Smollett is nominated for “Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama,” but it seems the Osundairo brothers should share that award!
I join Anderson, hoping Smollett wins — and I hope Jesse Jackson and fellow hate-hoaxer Al Sharpton handle the presentation. If he wins, perhaps he can use the award money to help pay off the $130,106 bill he just received from the city of Chicago to pay for all the police overtime to solve his hoax.
(Update: Smollett flew to Los Angeles for the event, but declined to show up, and another actor took the award.)
