Instagram Banning Memes Against Hoaxer Jussie Smollett

Instagram, owned by Facebook, crafts the narrative users receive. Right now, they’re deleting any memes that make fun of Jussie Smollett, the Empire actor who paid fellow actors to attack him in Chicago in the middle of a frigid night. [Read all about it in Dov Fischer’s cover piece.] Before that, he wrote a fake racist, homophobic letter to himself [allegedly] or paid someone to do it.

Jussie Smollett is a joke. He perpetrated his own crimes [allegedly] and lied about it. His lies provoked hysteria from the media, Democrats, and Hollywood, and then they lied about it.

Anyone with a nose for truth knew it was false and so, anyone not duped is making fun of both the criminal and his willing accomplices.

Since Leftists have no sense of humor, they’re angry. Since Leftists control the media, they can do something about it. What they’re doing is squelching anyone expressing mirth at their expense.

Mark Dice asks why no one is covering it. Well, maybe it’s because the lying, ignoring, and squelching is nonstop.

Have you noticed that no one is talking about Governor Northam’s black face scandal? Thanks Jussie!

Have you noticed that no one is talking about Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax’s #MeToo moment where he’s credibly accused by two professional, Democrat women of rape? His accusers are willing to testify. Democrats in Virginia are dropping calls for him to resign.

Have you noticed that the Covington kids hoax isn’t being reported? The Washington Post is being sued for libel to the tune of $250 million.

Have you noticed that no one is talking about the rampant anti-Semitism coming out of Democrats’ mouths?

Oh! And did you know that on the very night that Jussie Smollett made up a crime against himself, a Jewish man was attacked in Brooklyn, NY? Did you know that hate crimes against Jewish people, by black people is rising there? Even the New York Times is covering it deep in their pages.

Meanwhile, Andrew McCabe, who looks like he’s from central casting for a NASA film from the 1950’s, is marauding around the cable news circuit spreading falsehoods.

The calumny and coverup is rampant.

Oh! And did you know that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez illegally moved money around not only to pay her boyfriend (husband?) during the campaign but to buy her election? She also moved into a swanky new apartment complex – as commies so often do – poor people need not apply. Thanks Jussie, too, for taking the lazy media’s gaze off of the New Green (Red) Deal.

Back to Instagram. If you haven’t heard all of these stories, it’s because Google, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and their various subsidiaries like Instagram, don’t cover this news. They bury it in their algorithms. I couldn’t even find the story about AOC via search using the words “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez new home.” I had to use exact and specific language to find an article I knew existed.

The media-Left thought they controlled everything. And they control a lot. Even in the face of multiple career-ending scandals involving Democrats, social justice warriors, and Hollywood actors, there have been no consequences and no deep exposés. There is scant news and certainly exposing the media’s hypocrisy won’t be allowed.

Just remember that you’re seeing a fraction of the falsehoods. If you see it at all, it’s because the truth has leaked through, not because the media and the digital organizations that serve as gatekeepers are promoting it. Alternative media like The American Spectator and other organizations on the right keep turning a spotlight back on the real stories. Hopefully, it’s enough.
