Love looks not with the eyes but with the mind And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind. Nor hath Love’s mind of any judgment taste— Wings & no eyes figure unheedy haste. And therefore is Love said to be a child, Because in choice he is so oft beguiled. — Shakespeare (49/365)

"there is no justice in treating individuals not as individuals but as representatives of their tribe" I think this is the important detail that gets lost.
Jussie Smollett and a Perfect Crime
Yesterday a group of around 50 masked activists stormed the (privately owned) US Border Patrol Museum in El Paso & defaced items inside, including a memorial to fallen officers. I’m reminded of how Islamic State destroyed museums in their occupation. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/protesters-take-over-border-patrol-museum-deface-pictures-of-fallen-officers …
If you love a free press, if you long for journalism that seeks truth, follow Andy Ngo. He is doing the job our legacy media refuses to do. #EnemyOfThePeople

Leaks out of the Chicago PD say that investigators believe @JussieSmollett staged the hoax hate attack with two African men connected to “Empire.” Whatever the end results show, I’d like to chronicle some of the responses at the time the news broke of the alleged brutal attack.
super informative thread 👇
Just because there was a fake robbery it doesn’t mean robberies don’t exist. Please do not fall for this logical fallacy.
Just because there was a strawman argument does not mean valid arguments don't exist. Please do not fall for this logical fallacy.
and I helped! 😁
And there it is. The pivot to the “bigger problem” despite the narrative collapse. Keep at it. Almost there!
I’m starting an independent political party. It’s called “Fuck This.” Join me.
I'm definitely here for this 👇
So maybe one of the lessons we can start with is that describing reported crimes as “possible” or “alleged” is a sound journalistic and epistemological practice, not an attack on victims. https://www.gq.com/story/jussie-smollett-hate-crime/amp?__twitter_impression=true …
compare and contrast the media: Covington v Smollett. That should be a class taught somewhere.
Hey @feministabulous — here is what you said on @ReliableSources tho: “The ‘MAGA [Country]’ quote — I remember reading about this story & looking for a real reputable media outlet reporting on that & I could not find one. The people repeating that quote were not news outlets.” https://twitter.com/feministabulous/status/1097193641389539330 …
I’ll admit, I had to read this a couple of times before I could fully exonerate @drdrew https://twitter.com/LVFamilyLawAtty/status/1097021762171092992 …
oh sh*t 🤣 same!
The media is like a little brother that hits you and then runs away to tell your mom that you hit them to get you in trouble.
And when your mum catches him lying, he blames you for being happy about his misfortune.
In a victimhood culture, accusations of hate crimes are generally taken at face value, & calls for caution or due process are seen as being unfair to victims. Hoaxers generally escape punishment unless police get involved.
Before the hoax is discovered, the "victim" receives special moral status--he or she is put on a pedastal and is deferred to on all sorts of matters. The incentives for faking one's victimhood status are obvious.
