Hoax Victimology — and the Search for the Black Cat at Midnight

The Jussie Smollett matter is riveting. The rush to judgment is exactly the hallmark of the Left — rushing to convict Brett M. Kavanaugh based on lies, damned lies, and more damned lies. Rushing to convict the Duke lacrosse players. Rushing to convict the rapist of Lena Dunham for a rape that never happened. Rushing to convict a Columbia University student, even as he was shamed and disgraced publicly by “The Mattress Girl,” with Columbia University ultimately having to settle with him. Rushing to convict the University of Virginia fraternity. Rushing to convict the people accused by Al Sharpton over Tawana Brawley. Rushing to believe the Ferguson Michael Brown “Hands up, Don’t Shoot!” lie and racing to convict a good police officer. Rushing to convict more good police officers in Baltimore over the Freddie Gray lies. And the Trayvon Martin lies. Rushing to convict Nick Sandmann.
