Snopes nigga? You gonna come at me with Snopes? I don't know why you even bother contradicting me at this point. Here's HARRIS:


Kamala Harris

@JussieSmollett is one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know. I’m praying for his quick recovery.

This was an attempted modern day lynching. No one should have to fear for their life because of their sexuality or color of their skin. We must confront this hate.

Cory Booker:
The vicious attack on actor Jussie Smollett was an attempted modern-day lynching. I'm glad he's safe To those in Congress who don't feel the urgency to pass our Anti-Lynching bill designating lynching as a federal hate crime– I urge you to pay attention.

Kristen Gillibrand:
it's the latest of too many hate crimes against LGBTQ people and people of color. We are all responsible for condemning this behavior and every person who enables or normalizes it. Praying for Jussie and his family.

Bernie Sanders:
The racist and homophobic attack on Jussie Smollett is a horrific instance of the surging hostility toward minorities around the country. We must come together to eradicate all forms of bigotry and violence.

and so on.

4Chan tried tying Kamala to him and some people took the bait. Not you though.

WTF are you talking about? I had never heard of the idea that they were related until just now. I posted how she was pumping him, you denied it, and I posted proof. They were connected before the attack, having met at political events. All this is public record dude.

There were a bunch of people humping the story.

Got trolled by Jussie.

Yes, but not all of them were pumping the story based on a personal relationship which the two have.

No, they had actually participated in some political functions together prior to the whole incident. Again, you're attributing things to me I never said, and discounting the truth of what I actually said.

EDIT: Harris and Smollett chanting “Time’s Up” at a MLK Day parade on January 15, 2018

I graciously accept the apology you are not capable of forming.

Your “article” references non-existent family ties, ties to the Obamas that appear limited to “appeared in a photo with.”

The photo with Kamala shows them appearing at the same rally with no apparent interaction, far less than the ones with the Obamas.

If you don’t scan that article and think it looks like tinfoil hat stuff, you are willfully avoiding reality.

I have already told you that I never even heard of a family connection until you brought it up. The article I posted clearly establishes their ties prior to the hoax or the twitter post by Kamala. In other words, everything I’ve said is true, not so with you. I’m at a loss as to what you think you’re proving.

You posted a link to a hoax site that shows, among other things, someone who may be Jussie in a group photo with Kamala Harris. The same hoax site posts a bunch of debunked theories in the same article. You linked this in response to my questioning of Kamala "pumping the story based on a personal relationship" as being more than half a tweet.

I'm not proving anything, but you are proving yourself to be a silly goose who takes some extremely dubious sources seriously.

LOL. Jussie paid the Osundairo brothers $3500 total. Kamala's support is probably out of his price range. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/pol ... 695143002/

I'm shocked that Natalie Portman is also in on it.

In real news, the DOJ is saying they want to reduce Roger Stone's sentencing recommendation after Trump tweeted about how unfair it is, prompting a resignation from the AUSA.

The former “Empire” actor, 37, was indicted by a grand jury on six counts of disorderly conduct for allegedly lying to police about a racist and homophobic attack against him in January 2019. He is already facing a civil case brought on by the city of Chicago that seeks to have the actor reimburse the department for the $130,000 spent on investigating the alleged attack as well as other costs that reportedly total close to half a million.

$500g? He's really getting it the Chicago way.
