Victim. Victimhood. Victimized. Victimization. All we all now victimizers? Could we really be victimless?
It’s all part of today’s victimology.
I remember writing years ago the line: “Are you black? Or gay? Get over it, no one really cares.” And I believe that most people don’t. Most Americans are fair-minded, open and accepting and just aren’t that interested in your personal life or self-perceived dramas. We just want ourselves and everyone to live and be happy without the entanglements of other’s imaginary images of “illusioned issues.”
But in today’s political, social, equal justice arena, it’s necessary to take advantage of every opportunity you can to elevate yourself. To look better than others because…. after all, you’re probably a victim and well deserving of our sympathies and concern.
For Empire actor Jussie Smollett, it wasn’t enough just to be who he was. To be black. To be gay. To make more money in a week than many make in a year. To be on the red carpet of life and have lines of fanatical followers bowing at your feet claiming friendship, or at the least seeking some recognition of their loathsome loyalties.
No, it is part of the new cause, the modern day racial radicalism and social promotion to put yourself out there…. as a victim. Someone beset upon by the horrid masses of hateful despites casting aspersions of animosity, resentment and violent hostility toward you for whatever imagined shortcomings you possess or display.
And of course, in due course and expected non-consequential responsiveness, the liberal lemmings of the left fall in line, in lockstep with the requisite reaction of support. “Oh, it’s a modern-day lynching” they cry out along with other such unfounded fodder as hate falling from the lips of congressional party leaders. For without a shred of foundational evidence, only the false equivocating expressions of a self-described victim as fact, we’re led to believe the moral fabric of America is once again shredded by abhorrent adorators of the “white” president and his culture of racial bigotry and animus.
In their search for support, recognition, concern, sympathy, and unbridled compassion, the left continually marks its territory with the feces of inflamed fraudulence. For nothing is more attention-getting than a good hate crime of race. Two weeks ago how many Americans ever heard of Jussie Smollett? And after his pinnacle of perceived persecution, how many want to hear of him again? It’s a shame that someone from such a poor and destitute existence needs to bring such attention to his plight in life. Mr. Smollett only makes about $100,000 an episode, reports someone close to the show, or $1.8 million a year. We should all be so poor.
Jussie sought the help of friends to perpetuate his ruse. “Might need your help on the low,” Mr. Smollett texted, prosecutors said.
Mr. Smollett, in a series of meetings with his friends, portrayed that he was disappointed a racist letter he claimed to have received a few days earlier hadn’t made enough of an impact, so he wanted the Nigerian brothers to engage in the fake attack- donning the appropriate MAGA hat of course.. [Yea… let’s move things up a notch and get more hate moving around.]
The recent news cycles have been replete with back and forth racial rhetoric. The use of ethnological hate crimes is an easy springboard for distracting and dismantling America. In the past four years, the number of hate crimes reported have continued their dramatic rise—reaching the highest level the U.S. has seen in a decade. This from a report from the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University–San Bernardino.
Racial hate crimes are a dark, two-way alley, bringing out the worst in attention-seeking coverups of their own crimes.
In ’92, Jesse Anderson became infamous for stabbing his wife Barbara E. Anderson thirty-seven times. Anderson blamed two African-American men for attacking him and his wife, and even presenting police with an LA Clippers basketball cap he claimed to have knocked off one of the assailants.
When details were made public, a university student told police Anderson had purchased the hat from him a few days earlier. The red-handled fishing knife which was used to murder Barbara was sold to Anderson only a few weeks earlier. Anderson was thereafter charged with murder, found guilty, and sentenced to life imprisonment.
Charles Stuart is an example of a racial hoax. On 23 October 1989, in Boston, Stuart and his pregnant wife Carol were driving when a black gunman forced his way into the car and shot them both, hitting Carol in the head and Stuart in the body. While still alive, Stuart drove away and called the police, who conducted a search of Mission Hill, Boston, a mostly black area. Carol died later that night; the baby died 17 days later.
Stuart picked out Willie Bennett, a black man, from a photo lineup. But the police then shifted their attention to Stuart when Stuart’s brother Matthew told them that Stuart had committed the murder. On 4 January 1990, Stuart committed suicide. The police later learned that Stuart had committed the murder to cash in on his wife’s insurance policy
Tawana Glenda Brawley gained notoriety in 1987–88 for falsely accusing six white men of having raped her. The charges received widespread national attention because of her age (15), the persons accused (including police officers and a prosecuting attorney). Brawley’s accusations were given widespread media attention in part from the involvement of the king of race non-relations, Reverend Al Sharpton.
After hearing evidence, a grand jury concluded in October 1988 that Brawley had not been a victim of rape and that she herself may have created the appearance of an attack. The New York prosecutor whom Brawley had accused as being one of her assailants, successfully sued her and her three advisers for defamation.
Add to these the Duke lacrosse players, Ashley Todd, Yasmin Seweid, SUNY students Alexis Briggs, Asha Burwell, and Ariel Agudio and many others and you see the lengths to which people will go to display their downtrodden, hated lives as circled targets for the darts of attention and benefit.
Part of the sickness of these lies and hoaxes is the desperate self-indulgent participation of the “victims,” lying their way all through the media process – even in very public arenas. Jussie Smollett appeared on “Good Morning America” in an emotional interview in which he spoke out against those who might question his accounting of the actions. “It’s not necessarily that you don’t believe that this is the truth, you don’t want to even see the truth,” he said.
We see the truth Jussie. We see the lies and deceit. We feel the pain of false accusations against good people, against America. We see the self-supporting, self-destructive means by which you seek attention and false compassion. Being the understanding compassionate people we are, we’ll extend the hand of “presumed innocent until,” but hour by hour we see the threads of your interwoven lies wearing thin against the rocks of reason, reality, and responsibility.
Truth? How can we be sure anymore?
