Chicago’s Police Superintendent Has a Message for Leftist Hollywood, Media, and Politicians Who Pushed Smollett Hate-Hoax Narrative

Eddie Johnson, Superintendent of Chicago’s police department, said he’s “angry and offended” by Jussie Smollett’s hate hoax, in which the actor claimed two supporters of President Donald Trump attacked him in Chicago on a freezing morning, threw bleach on him, and put a rope around his neck.

The truth was revealed. Smollett, apparently dissatisfied over his salary on the TV show “Empire,” hired two Nigerian brothers to stage an attack.

“I love the city of Chicago and the Chicago police department, warts and all,” Johnson said. “But this publicity stunt was a scar that Chicago didn’t earn and certainly didn’t deserve.”

Johnson even accused Smollett of sending the fake-hate letter. The superintendent had a lot more to say. Watch the brief clip.

  1. Congratulations Commissioner Johnson for being in the minority condemning this despicable being.
    It was refreshing to see an honest man in a high position in Chicago.

  2. One of the things which I truly hate is the utter racist attitudes displayed by some people when we are all children of God. I spent my whole life in the military and law enforcement and they are true meritocracies no one really cares about the color of your skin just your competence and character Commoner Eddie Johnson, Sheriff David Clarke and so many of my Sisters and Brothers who wear badges prove that everyday. My wife and I came from small towns and we did not know what segregation was we just accepted people as people. Even German Field Marshal Erwin Rommel the Desert Fox once observed “For me, soldiers are all equal. Those black people wore your same uniform, fought on your side, and so you will be in the same jail.” Think about that for a minute.
