This sheds some light on how commies think. They don’t care if something is less entertaining, hurts ratings, bad for children, or whatever. It is all about advancing the narrative to destroy the traditional family structure.

Ditto.

The black and gay tribes are being made the tragic victims in this crime. I’m not hearing much about the people the crime was directed against — white Trump supporters. Unfortunately, IMHO, your meme contributes to that one-sided narrative.

Give Van Jones a break. This might be the most intelligent thing he’s said on CNN (It may be ridiculous and nonsensical but still beats his typical comments)

Van Jones is delusional. I doubt that most people knew who Smollet was until this hate crime hoax took place. ----

I never had heard of the sick bastard (Smollett), and will most likely forget him in a short couple of weeks.

When and if I am reminded of him in the future, I will spit on his HATE CRIME LIFE.

33 Jackie Robinson was a Republican, Smollett is no republican or a Jackie Robinson.

Wikipedia - Jackie Robinson

Robinson was active in politics throughout his post-baseball life. He identified himself as a political independent,[238][239] although he held conservative opinions on several issues, including the Vietnam War (he once wrote to Martin Luther King, Jr. to defend the Johnson Administration's military policy).[240] After supporting Richard Nixon in his 1960 presidential race against John F. Kennedy, Robinson later praised Kennedy effusively for his stance on civil rights.[241] Robinson was angered by conservative Republican opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, though a higher percentage of Democrats voted against it in both the House and Senate. He became one of six national directors for Nelson Rockefeller's unsuccessful campaign to be nominated as the Republican candidate for the 1964 presidential election.[234] After the party nominated Senator Barry Goldwater of Arizona instead, Robinson left the party's convention commenting that he now had "a better understanding of how it must have felt to be a Jew in Hitler's Germany".[242] He later became special assistant for community affairs when Rockefeller was re-elected governor of New York in 1966.[234] Switching his allegiance to the Democrats, he subsequently supported Hubert Humphrey against Nixon in 1968.[192]

Jussie Smollet isn’t fit to fill even one of Jackie Robinson’s shoes.

Van Jones is abysmally ignorant. And now he is slandering Jackie Robinson.

"As far as I know, Jackie never concocted any fake crimes to advance the cause."

As far as I know, Jackie was never a pitcher or catcher.

I hope Rachel Robinson isn’t exposed to this nonsense. The woman is 96 and we would not want to shock her.

This might be the worst take I’ve seen in a very long time - that is a HIGH bar.

This is probably the most absurd “eulogy” of the late, great Jussie Smollett yet.
