The Jussie Smollett Hoax is the New Ice Bucket Challenge

This is Philip Wyeth. Pretty ecstatic right now that the Jussie Smollett hate crime hoax story’s falling apart. Why? Because on the night of the alleged attack, I wrote this on Twitter in response to the claim that the people who attacked him said, “This is MAGA country!”

I wrote, “This is Egg-On-Your-Face country.” Millions of credulous fools allowing themselves to be whipped into a Pavlovian frenzy by media manipulators. But ‘the feels’ of virtue signaling are
too good to resist.”

Now here we are, two, three weeks later, and it’s all falling apart in outrageous fashion. Every day some new ridiculous detail is coming out. Will this guy take the fall? Will he go to prison? Or will it just be one of those things where in the media, “He needs to take some time for himself, he needs to go to rehab”?

And there would be no consequences for what? Essentially slandering white people, Republicans, Trump supporters.

But what gets me about this whole Smollett thing is it reminds me of the Ice Bucket Challenge a few years ago. Who had the courage to resist doing that stupid shit? You know, it took on a life of its own, and so every friend, every co-worker, every relative kept retweeting or forwarding the Facebook videos of them taking it, and “I challenge you.”

And this time it was the celebrities, the politicians, the media pouncing on this story dujor about some sort of hate crime. How many of these high-profile people are now gonna post, “Hey, I was wrong. I had the Fox Mulder reaction from X-Files. I want to believe.”

They all wanted to believe that this crime was true because it allowed them to believe in their
narrative, and then do some sort of public display of… reconciliation, lecturing, self-righteousness about, “We need to have that conversation.”

But now that it’s all falling apart and proving to be a lie… No, we need to have this conversation, where jerks like me, assholes like me who called it out—because my spidey sense was correct weeks ago—I was the one who was right.

Yeah, I’m a straight white guy who called bullshit on it the day of, while all of you got to pat each other on the back for weeks because you’re part of this self-righteous, progressive, forward-thinking—allegedly—movement. When in truth it was all a lie.

How many other hate hoaxes have been a lie since the 2016 election? Remember the Muslim girl who said that guys in MAGA hats ripped off her hijab? Turns out she was late for her curfew and didn’t want to get her dad mad. And when she went into court a few days later, her head had been shaved by her father for lying to him! Where were you calling him out for his toxic masculinity?

We’re not even two months into the year and we’ve had a handful of these events that, on the surface were one thing, which made straight white males for the most part look bad—and then when the real story came out, it was anything but us who did it. When will you learn? Or because you’re part of this axis of the education, media, entertainment matrix you never face consequences for your incorrect assumptions. Your slanders, your lies.

How much money has the Chicago Police Department wasted that could have been spent on tracking down real criminals, chasing down this lie? How many times are you allowed to bear false witness against your political enemies before you face real-life consequences, and not just a retraction or a correction on page 28 of the newspaper?

And all of the websites like TMZ, New York Times, Good Morning America on TV, who made money on this story, promoting it, not doing their due diligence on the facts. Do you have to return that money, or maybe donate it to a charity in the same way that a celebrity or politician gets in trouble has to essentially give money to some organization that is tangentially related to the party they aggrieved?

I think at the root of this we can track down conformity as being one of the worst afflictions of modern American life. And it’s particularly evident among the political Left, because they’re in this arms race of going along to get along.

I remember when I was at a cigar shop last year and there was one man I was talking to, probably around my age, late thirties, smart guy, a lawyer. And he was saying something to the effect of, “change equals progress.”

And I disagree, and here’s two examples why. Let’s say you lose your arm in a car accident. That is a change, but that is not progress. You find out you have a tumor on your arm. Again, that is a change but that is not progress.

My guess is that even if Jussie Smollett did some kind of perp walk press conference, like Tiger Woods did years ago, the true believers who tweeted about this, wrote articles about it, held rallies about it… They just will not be able to back down and let it go. They are too invested in this narrative.

You just can’t reason with people or so bought into a certain ideology, narrative, group hug mentality that they are not capable of healthy skepticism, common sense, or just waiting to see how things play out. Because the rewards are instant in the Twitter, Instagram, Facebook world.

The bottom line is that the people who are skeptical and had to hold out, hold the line for the past few weeks and are now proven right tonight—all you’ve done is reduced the level of patience or pity we would have for such stories.

“The Boy Who Cried Wolf” is a fable that has stood the test of time for a reason. And it’s now not just the boy who cried wolf, because we can’t assume his gender! But it’s basically an ideology that has cried wolf, a mob that has cried wolf.

And I just think that if you keep trying to pull these things over the next couple of years, you’re taking us to the breaking point. And you really don’t want to see what happens when we get that glaze over our eyes and we just don’t care anymore what you think.

No Safe Headspace in the Melting Pot

This is Philip Wyeth, author of “Chasing the Best Days,” “Reparations USA,” and “Reparations Mind.”

Here at the car dealership where my truck is being repaired, the waiting area is filled with foreign-born people all speaking in their native tongue. One wonders at the infrastructure that was put in place to bombard Los Angeles, and most metropolitan areas it seems, with all these incongruous people.

Back in my home state of Virginia 3000 miles away, the never-ending saga of white/black race relations plays out its latest ineffectual act. It’s got all the platitudes and pandering and righteous posturing we’ve seen before, but which get everyone nowhere—meanwhile another million fresh arrivals to our country, who have no skin in this came, merrily put down their own roots.

Which makes me ask, if any alliance is to be made among heritage white and black Americans, is it a reactionary response to being thrown under the bus by our government, which allowed the so-called melting pot to be overwhelmed by too many new ingredients and random spices?

And if the race hustlers, hate-crime hoaxers, and self-flagellating Leftists won’t even allow us to notice this demographic change happening under our feet, then I suspect that the next reaction will be to channel our yearning need for meaning into a reluctant shedding of our American identity, and in its place return to being European and African.

Any such trend toward ancestral awareness, or even allegiance, would fall firmly at the feet of both government and business. It’s galling to think how casually their short-sighted materialism enabled them to sell out our country’s soul in order to accommodate millions of other nations’ citizens. Now after weathering endless wars, economic collapses, and a mass media propaganda machine that seeks to demoralize us, we Americans are exhausted and fighting for scraps here in this lowest-common-denominator nightmare of subsistence click-bait farming.

We’re so stunted and scatterbrained to the point that maybe there won’t be many more great inventions. No more great striving to create insightful or uplifting art. And certainly no taking inspiration from the great deeds of the past. Why? Because our ancestors didn’t do everything perfectly every time everywhere.

Instead street tacos are elevated to the level of cuisine on Yelp. Sports have lost their status as a “safe space” away from politics. And before judging someone by the content of their character, you must also take into consideration their sob story, or the concavity of their crotch.

The spirit of what made America functionally great—striving for excellence, merit, lofty goals—is being crushed and extinguished in favor of creating a docile monochrome population that sits and shops rather than scales mountains. Zombies who use technology not to further unlock nature’s secrets, but to indulge the Seven Deadly Sins—and sprinkle a little self-entitled grievance on top for good measure.

Picture a small device in your house, such as a coffee maker or electric toothbrush. Think about all the micro-innovations that went into the process of creating the model you purchased. Countless hours spent testing and tweaking the components, all adding to the large repository of knowledge that is later applied to an improved version or another new product altogether.

This is what we in America perfected in the post-WWII boom years—and now risk just throwing away because, what? We’ve saturated the world with technology and home goods, so now the next great messianic dream is to end all conflict and perceived inequity by merging all races into one pigment?

But that’s not how it will play out. Already this new Democrat freshman class is showing the plan: that we will always have to look at each and every thing through the prism of race, class, religion, and ethnic homeland. Like a jeweler holding up his loop to inspect a diamond’s features and noting its flaws, now we too will look at the new Oral-B rotating head electric toothbrush and demand to know: how many women of color were on the team that crafted the motor?

Because we are not free to look up or forward anymore. The Kurt Vonnegut story “Harrison Bergeron,” with its Handicapper General making everyone equal, has become a mental reality.

Our imported problems like Ilhan Omar are here to bite clean through our ankles, rather than fix the countries their own families ran away from. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the vanguard of people who run their mouths to beat an opponent into submission to get what they want, rather than doing the work of quiet introspection that envisions how to solve the problem of morphing clunky DOS-prompt computers into the elegant, handheld smartphones we use today.

So the fork in the road isn’t just about skin color or gender. It’s about having the courage to stand up to people who want to hold a society hostage. Because as we’ve seen especially in the past month, no amount of capitulation or concessions to the Left-wing mob is ever enough. Whether you never opened your mouth but wore the wrong hat, or spent a political career pandering to them, one day that locust swarm will surely come for you.

To keep our self-respect and finally defeat them, from now on just say to them over and over again: no, no… no!
