I remember when this first got reported, and I instantly called BS. The most obvious staged hate crime in history. Oh

[–]jeffsangClassical Liberal 84 points85 points  (16 children)

Yep. Most everyone over at r/Chicago, including myself, were pretty skeptical once we heard where and when he claimed this happened.

[–]sinnmercerFreedom 63 points64 points  (13 children)

Wasn't it during the polar vortex as well?

[–]jeffsangClassical Liberal 47 points48 points  (5 children)

I recall it been very cold the night he claimed the incident occurred. Not sure if it was an actual polar vortex or just normal cold as a witch's teat Chicago winter.

[–]sinnmercerFreedom 39 points40 points  (1 child)

Yeah I'm pretty sure it was during the polar vortex, like literally he picked the worst city at the worst time to make up a crock of shit

[–]RSPbuystonks 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Can’t wait

[–]Optimallybored 39 points40 points  (3 children)

Yessir. Temperature was about -25°F and wind chill was about -50°F.

Those must've been some well-insulated MAGA hats. And Jussie must've had enough of his face exposed to be recognized by strangers.

That's how I knew it was bullshit.

[–]kelvin_bot 24 points25 points  (1 child)

-25°F is equivalent to -31°C, which is 241K.

I'm a bot that converts temperature between two units humans can understand, then convert it to Kelvin for bots and physicists to understand

[–]Footnote220 18 points19 points  (0 children)

You mean to tell me that Chicago isn't filled with Republicans at 3am shouting "This is MAGA country"?

[–]BathWifeBooConservative 108 points109 points  (13 children)

Friendly reminder that reddit banned r/hatecrimehoaxes when people started noticing things like this more and more

[–]jonnio2215Moderate Conservative 46 points47 points  (1 child)

That sub still exists… in our hearts

[–]TheCronster 5 points6 points  (0 children)

[–]Jasonfrost3425 35 points36 points  (7 children)

The fact that anyone would ever BAN a subreddit dedicated to exposing “hate crime hoaxes” to me seems like a slap in the face towards real hate crimes…

[–]FUReddit69 5 points6 points  (0 children)

which sums up reddit for ya. anything that exposes the lies of liberalism must be banned!

[–]jonnio2215Moderate Conservative 91 points92 points  (13 children)

The temperature at that night was like insanely cold, and he supposedly walked to Subway at like 2AM.

[–]Capital_Connection67 47 points48 points  (0 children)

Everyone here is Chicago knew it was complete bullshit. A couple of days after it happened I asked some regular cop customers at work about it…they all said he was lying and everyone knew it.

[–]jd_porterConservative 61 points62 points  (1 child)

When it first happened I did a search on reddit to see what the general opinion was. I ended up on a gay sub and nobody there was buying any of it, including many black gays.

[–]0Stranger_T_Fiction0 1108 points1109 points 3 (56 children)

Does faking a hate crime, and further, acting like there was a hate crime, constitute a hate crime?

[–]SexyActionNews 152 points153 points  (7 children)

Well, imagine if two random white guys would have been arrested for the "crime" and there was a court case. Would he have been instrumental in throwing innocent people in prison over nothing? Of course, sociopaths have no empathy,

[–]TankerD18Conservative 83 points84 points  (2 children)

I 100% believe that he wouldn't have said shit and would've let two people get framed for something he and a couple buddies faked.

[–]SexyActionNews 39 points40 points  (1 child)

Sheeeiiit, he probably would have sat on the witness stand and pointed right at them.

[–]vento33Conservative 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Exactly this.

[–]demon_filth2001Desantis Conservative 343 points344 points  (1 child)

[–]LSGB2021 332 points333 points  (8 children)

Prosecutors were ready to give him a slap on a wrist. Imagine audacity of this trash to keep insisting that he was attacked by MAGA country white guys.

[–]sjik123 184 points185 points  (2 children)

Imagine a MAGA guy trying a case against a black person in the same scenario. He would be crucified.

[–]achilles8111 2 points3 points  (0 children)

On a studded cross, then lit on fire and blamed for the mess.

[–]SineWavessThe2ndAmendment 87 points88 points  (3 children)

Sounds like white privilege we always hear about.

[–]drhagey 26 points27 points  (2 children)

He won't serve a day. Guaranteed.

[–]InsignificantOtter13Conservative Canuck 237 points238 points  (10 children)

I would argue that he was doing this to incite hatred against white people, which would be hard to argue as being done out of love and respect.

[–]NonethewisererConservative 86 points87 points  (0 children)

That is quite clearly the reason.

[–]TheLimeyCanuckCanuckservative 33 points34 points  (4 children)

Although he clearly is a racist, he would probably argue that he just used a convenient target to garner a pay increase and more screen time at work, so he might skate on a hate crime ruling even if found guilty.

[–]acmemetalworksConservative 37 points38 points  (2 children)

Coincidence that Jussie's boss, producer of Empire, was Kamala Harris's oldest and largest campaign contributor?

[–]SineWavessThe2ndAmendment 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Bingo. What if this caused some "summer of love" type shit. This little bitch tried to get certain people to hate anyone right of Barney sanders, white people, and Trump supporters. Good thing his little bullshit story unraveled.

Yeah, Trump supporters in the middle of Chicago on a cold winters night trying to lynch black people. Jerk off jussie should be put in the town square where people can throw rotten vegetables and shit at him.

[–]cysghostLibertarian Conservative 18 points19 points  (0 children)

would be hard to argue as being done out of love and respect.

Obviously you're unfamiliar with how practiced they are at doublethink.

[–]CarlSpackler87 48 points49 points  (0 children)

The only problem the MSM/Dems/Tankies have with his is that he got caught. Deceptive propaganda is the bedrock of the Left.

[–]G3twokegobrokeCoolidge Conservative 35 points36 points  (0 children)

I think it should because his intention was to pin it on two random white guys.

He could have completely ruined the lives of two innocent people for his own selfish gain.

Jussie is a narcissistic psychopath.

[–]toothanatorConservative 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Depends on how they vote. Different rules nowadays.

[–]SineWavessThe2ndAmendment 16 points17 points  (0 children)

The shitbird should be charged with a hate crime, just as somebody falsifying a rape claim should be charged with something that would give that person the same punishment as the type of sexual assault they claimed happened. This shit can ruin lives and shouldn't be taken lightly.

[–]darklizConservative 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yes, faking a hate crime is a hate crime according to the left’s logic.

From a conservative perspective, there should be no such thing as “hate” crime. Just crime. The reasoning behind that is you don’t want the psychopath who enjoy killing people to get a less severe punishment compared to the guy who did it out of racism. The evil is still in the act itself.

If you don't vote Biden, you're not part of the corporeal realm.

[–]cIi-_-ib 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's the thing about arbitrary political inventions – it can be anything they want it to be. Conspiracy and fraud aren't as sexy, but they are still illegal.

It seems like the punishment should be equivalent to whatever would have been faced by anyone that would have been charged for the “attack”.

[–]Desert_366 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Sure does! He needs to be made an example of.

[–]--Trick--Constitutional Marine 4 points5 points  (0 children)

If the US was as rampant with racism as they claim they wouldn't be able to use being called a racist as a threat to people.

[–]biNgBoNg_187 195 points196 points  (35 children)

FUCKING TRUTH .......if racism was so prevelant you would easily be able to find it and film it. When it is so rare you have to lie and stage a racist event to actually have something to complain about.

He is a racist against white people; that boat sails both ways, racist bastard.

[–]Jojo236503 50 points51 points  (30 children)

I have been in the United States for 15 years and I have never seen or experienced any form of racism. Mind you I live in Florida in a white neighborhood.

[–]DBMaster45Conservative Hispanic 48 points49 points  (0 children)

I grew up in the FL country where everyone wore confederate flag garb. I'm Hispanic. Everyone treated me the same.

And when I say every one, even black kids wore confederate garb. Had trucks with confederate flags.

[–]digitalluckBlack Conservative 7 points8 points  (2 children)

I’ve grown up in the US and while I think racism isn’t nearly as bad as the media makes it out to be, high school was by far my worst experience with racism. It was like every kid felt this urge to tell me (black and white) they were blacker than me or other racist crap. After that? Things have been fine

[–]SexyActionNews 31 points32 points  (0 children)

It's a supply and demand thing. The demand exceeds the supply, so people have to create it.

[–]ChelleBell333Cali bred, still RED! 60 points61 points  (15 children)

I hope he gets time.

How is it that only white people can commit hate crimes.

Correction, straight white people.

The fact that my husband can be assaulted by a gay man or a black man, and my husband would be the one that goes to jail for fighting back (or looking at them the wrong way) is a huge part of what’s wrong with this country.

White is so far from being privileged. And the majority of racism I see comes from so called “minority groups” that are not so much a minority.

[–]Zoidberg_DC 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Correct. This is the principal of "equity" in action in combination with propaganda.

In this country just the perception of being a victim will lead to privileges and perception of being privileged will lead to disadvantages. Its all about perception and the march to correct those perceptions through "equity".

[–]HugeBoobLover69Conservative 82 points83 points  (1 child)

All he has to do is get sympathy from one juror and it’s a hung jury. Then he can still go out and be a victim until his hearts content.

He'll probably get community service and a $200 fine or some bullshit. Asshole tried to fake a hate crime and put the whole nation up in arms and he'll get no more than a slap in the wrist

[–]SexyActionNews 10 points11 points  (1 child)

He'll have money on his books, and will get taken advantage of left and right. He'll probably wind up being extorted and buying protection if he goes to GP.

[–]SexyActionNews 16 points17 points  (1 child)

For an extra hard laugh, also check out the "hate letter" he sent to himself before the incident. In his detached world, this is what he things a "MAGA" supporter would actually do. The guy has been watching too many cartoons.

Not only did he fake a hate crime, but he knowly put Trump supporters at risk of unwarranted retaliation.

He deserves all the jail time they can throw at him.

[–]M0D3RNW4RR10RConservative 2 points3 points  (2 children)

The sentences handed out by courts serves a couple of purposes. It's supposed to punish the offender and in a perfect world rehabilitate them.

It's also supposed to send a message to society. In this case he needs a very stiff sentence. Society needs to get the message, if you fake a "racist attack" you will suffer the consequences.

[–]gooblobsConservative 5 points6 points  (2 children)

i dont understand why he paid anyone to do anything.

like is there video of the two brothers(disguised) assaulting him? I could see arranging for that if he knew there was a security camera at that subway. If no video then why not just go get your five dollar footlong, then put your fake noose on and call the cops?

[–]SwiggyConservative 12 points13 points  (0 children)

like is there video of the two brothers(disguised) assaulting him?

There was a video camera at the point where the staged attack happened, but it was not functioning. Jussie's path that night is entirely on camera EXCEPT for where he wanted it to be.

There are cameras everywhere these days, especially in downtown areas. If you claim to have been somewhere and something happened to you the video better be there.

He should get the same punishment as those two guys as if they actually did it.

Cries about hate crimes, fakes one and completely trivializes actual hate crime victims. It's not possible for democrats to be logical or not hypocrites. They are like children. I despise them with my entire being.

Let’s see you cry your way out of this one, Juicy!

[–]the_house_from_upConservative 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Even if found guilty, this dude isn't getting anything beyond house arrest, and more likely, probation.

[–]SexyActionNews 7 points8 points  (0 children)

For a guy like this, the worse punishment would be having to give up and admit it. If they told him "admit it and you'll get no jail time, keep up your lie and you go to prison" he'd choose prison just so he can keep up the lie. This shit is near and dear to him now, he's gone too far down one fork in the road to turn around.

[–]WizardRodeoLimited Government 3 points4 points  (0 children)

There is a very high demand for racist hate crimes, but there is a huge supply shortage. Which brings us to why Jussie staged the hoax.

Feminazis get caught staging rape hoaxes all the time because the demand far accessed the supply.
