I’m not going to jump to conclusions and start blaming people without evidence but it seems suspicious. If I had to venture a guess, the “MAGA” part seems to be added to the story to stir the pot and most likely did not occur.

I’m sorry, he still had the rope around his neck when he made contact with the cops? You survive an attack (he does not look like he was beaten but his face is puffy, his lip is puffy and he has a cut on his cheek) yet you keep the rope around your neck? That seems odd. Also, who wanders around at 2am wearing ski masks and carrying bleach?
Police got the closest video but it just shows him walking down the street. That could be before an attack though.

I can’t find what area of the city it took place in but that would make a difference.

This was the Streeterville area. No way this happened. This is the area with the Hancock building, some Lake Shore Drive homes, the residential neighborhoods are highly upscale. I think the Gold Coast. The Hancock tower. If he was at the Subway on MI Avenue (it’s 24 hours).....there are security cameras everywhere and the CPD says they can find nothing. They are “extending the scope” of the search.
Let’s wait and see but one does not carry bleach, wear a ski mask and have a rope at 2am. It’s also not friendly to MAGA people or anti-gay. It is not seen as anti-black either.
I’m not saying he’s lying. Something, somewhere happened to him. It seems to me something just does not fit with the story.

I don’t believe the MAGA connection. It could be real, but there have been too many faked attacks.

If an attack actually happened, and I’m not saying it didn’t, I would need some concrete evidence like security video or independent witnesses to corroborate the incident as told by the victim. Chicago isn’t known for its white, racist, bleach & noose wielders to be roaming the streets at 2 AM looking for gay celebrities to assault. I’m not a betting man but if I were, I would bet I wouldn’t find any similar incidents occurring in that area matching this one in recent memory. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.
We’ll just have to wait and see.

Well people could come from anywhere and attack someone, doesn’t need to be from Chicago, although it’s a city of 6 million people, so I’m sure it has some racist, homophobic scum there. But you are right we will see what the cameras show( hopefully)

I hope it's not true, but I also hope that someone wouldn't lie about something like that. Just seems really fishy to me, and usually when things seem fishy to me they turn out to be. I just hate that people like Kamala Harris have to add their 2 cents to get their name on the spotlight. It's about him, not them.

Just thinking out loud here, but maybe it’s best to keep our powder dry before we know what happened. If it’s true, we don’t want to be on the wrong side of this. If it isn’t, let the left attack first like Cov so we can re-frame it.

Chicago police told CNN that Smollett initially did not tell them about the heinous comments hurled at him — such as “This is MAGA country” — when he initially reported the crime. Investigators reached out to him after hearing about them in the media. Smollett then confirmed what his attackers said in an ancillary interview with agents assigned to the case.

“The MAGA” comment has mysteriously been removed from original story (although twitter still has it). Surveillance has shown nothing yet.

RussianThunder Russia and USA

This is sadly, starting to look like a hoax. Police have gone through numerous surveillance videos and found nothing. He was in a very good part of the city. He had bleach on him but got in his car and either drove to a friend’s and then the hospital or straight from the hospital. Asked the cops to turn off their body cams before giving them his statement. They didn’t get bleach in his eyes? Nose?
The police announcements on this appear to be questioning it too.
However, if it’s true and perpetrators are caught, put them in the general population with the caught who can dispense real justice.

As info comes streaming in, does anyone have anything supporting the initial allegation?

RussianThunder Russia and USA
01/30/19 12:31 pm

I mean, if you are trying to make a case for it being true.....he had a threat. People have stalkers who both hate them and love them. Maybe a couple of drunk privileged college kids? The attack occurred near the attacker’s car and one remembered bleach was in the car?
All things are possible.

If you are trying to make a case against it. It is a highly upscale area. It is not MAGA friendly. There are cameras everywhere but they can’t seem to find the attack? He didn’t call the police from where it happened yet kept the rope around his neck? There’s more.


The police probably won’t say if they found he is lying. If I was lying, I would be persecuted. If they find the attack, at this point, they will release the footage.

If Al Sharpton showed up at my side.....I would ask him to leave.

I wonder if he was angry at the President and conservatives to the point where he may have been less than truthful. Obviously, I’d never say that, but I could see how someone could make the case.

I have thoughts about being out at 2am at a sandwich shop. Maybe he was looking for a special friend that turned on him. Being beat up he may have concocted a story at buddies house before the hospital. I think the story will die in the press if they discover it was a hoax.

Isn’t it freezing in Chicago now? Are Subways open at 2 am? Doesn’t he have room service at his hotel? Could you recognize him - is he that well known? I’m sure he was wearing a hat. Are people walking around in Chicago with rope and bleach at 2am in sub zero weather? And when did Chicago become MAGA country?
