Following Thursday’s verdict on the Jussie Smollett trial, Democrats are being called out on social media for their Tweets supporting Smollett and condemning Republicans for spewing “dangerous lies”, racism, and homophobia. Here are the top ten Tweets that helped to fuel public anger and racial divisions following Smollet’s staged hate crime:

  1. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Tweeted an emotional reply to a story from Entertainment Tonight which described Smollett’s fake hate crime as a “possible homophobic and racially charged attack”. The news outlet later bowed under the pressure and changed the story’s headline to describe the hoax as “a homophobic, racist attack”.

“There is no such thing as “racially charged.” This attack was not “possibly” homophobic. It was a racist and homophobic attack. If you don’t like what is happening to our country, then work to change it. It is no one’s job to water down or sugar-coat the rise of hate crimes.”

2. Rashida Tlaib quoted GQ’s story covering Smollett’s staged hate crime in her misguided Tweet:

“”When one of the most famous black and gay men in America is not safe, the message is clearer than it has ever been.” The dangerous lies spewing from the right wing is killing & hurting our people. Thinking of you @JussieSmollett, and my LGBTQ neighbors.”

3. Bernie Sanders joined the swarm of Liberals jumping to Smollett’s defense, Tweeting:

“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.”

4. Joy-Ann Reid‘s Tweet focused on the “noose” that Smollett tightened around his own neck after the staged attack.

“Nooses never really disappeared as messages of a very specific kind of terror, but every time they’re used, my God, it’s chilling. Praying for Jussie’s full recovery. And for us all.”

5. Joe Biden took to Twitter while on his campaign trail from his basement, writing,

“What happened today to @JussieSmollett must never be tolerated in this country. We must stand up and demand that we no longer give this hate safe harbor; that homophobia and racism have no place on our streets or in our hearts. We are with you, Jussie.”

6. Kamala Harris shared her love for the criminal on Twitter as well, calling him one of the “kindest, most gentle human beings” she knows.

“@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.”

7. Lori Lightfoot Tweeted her support for Smollett, while promoting herself during her campaign for Chicago’s mayor.

“My thoughts and prayers are with #JussieSmollett. Everyone deserves to live safely as their true authentic self in this city. As mayor, I will make sure that, regardless of the victim’s stature, hate crime incidents and complaints are fully investigated.”

8. Senator Cory Booker second-voiced Kamala Harris’ statement that this was a modern-day lynching, and urged Congress to pass the Anti-Lynching bill:

“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.”

9. Eric Swalwell blamed “careless hate-filled rhetoric”, prompting his followers to openly blame President Trump for causing this fake attack.

“What happened to Jussie Smollett is vile and tragic; thankfully, he will recover. But hate crimes like this are happening more frequently, egged on by careless hate-filled rhetoric. We start reducing these crimes by rejecting the speech – neither can ever be accepted as normal.”

10. And, finally, GQ‘s Tweeted headline, “The racist, homophobic attack on Jussie Smollett is far-right America’s endgame”. Turns out, it was all a Leftist hoax to further their agenda of dividing our country.
