Yes, of course I’m being sarcastic with the title. He wasn’t “exonerated”. We know this because the prosecutor’s office bluntly said so:
If I ever had any doubts that the state’s attorney’s office did this as some sort of weird revenge for the Mueller report, the specific and pointed phrase “we didn’t exonerate him” fairly well eliminated them. This was an unconcealed “fuck you” to Donald Trump’s America by intention. What it says for the rule of law is even more vulgar.
Smollett, as everyone remembers, gave the nation another shove toward a race war by engineering a fake story about Trump supporters attacking him. Then a partisan prosecutor refuses to enforce the law to spite Trump supporters.
I wish I could bring myself to rage about it but I can’t. This is just how the Democrats view the law in the US and apply the unequal enforcement of it. If you hold the correct political views and have the right friends (bonus for being a member of a special class or two), you have no worries. But if you’re Trump or Justice Kavanaugh or someone who likes either of them, the law is a weapon to be used against you even if the facts have to be fabricated.
Chicago is a corrupt Democratic shithole that embodies their views. It’s a microcosm of Obama’s DC, really, where the powerful’s twisted notion of “justice” is what really matters. Not law. I don’t know what else to expect anymore, hence I’m numb.
I don’t believe the rule of law exists in the US. I don’t know when we lost it nor am I even sure when I became aware of its absence. Sad thing is I don’t want to be this way and I don’t think I’ve passed the point of no return.
All it would take is to see some, even the slightest bit, of proof that the powerful and politically-favored will be held accountable for their efforts to tear the American people apart.
Just one and I may even start believing in the Easter Bunny again. Hey, maybe Smollett will get a federal indictment in his basket. Who knows.
