So most of your points were the opposite of fascism while the last was neutral at worst. I still agree with you and disagree with Black on this one.
I get what your saying here but as much as the left tries to equate the two I truly don't find nationalism to be fascist by default. Russia's communism was the culprit there, and really that's not even Russian, it stems from Judaism and Marxism. There's an old saying "To know who rules over you, look to who you're not allowed to criticize" Then look at all the Anti antisemitism laws being pushed here in the US (First Amendment violation) and around the world. Antisemitism is quite funny to me at this point because we seem to be getting to the point with it that An anti-Semite used to mean a man who hated Jews. Now it means a man who is hated by Jews.

Along with everyone else that says most of the items on the list aren't fascist in nature I would take issue with the "Hard" part of the statement.

Anything right of current progressive ideology is too far right and that bar keeps moving to the left every day the left decides to redefine some fundamental value. I mean in the last 10 years they've gotten away with redefining marriage, sex, and now even birth!

Even the standard RINO is too "Hard" right. The fact that a tilts-left-of-center "Republican" like Lindsey Graham is seen as someone standing up for the conservative side goes to show just how far things have gone to the left.

Graham hasn't changed his positions, he's still the same RINO he has always been, his positions are still pretty much the same but now with so much bullshit being spewed from the left the times Graham (or someone else) does say something intelligible we grab onto it like it is the last life vest on the Titanic.

He didn't find his balls after McCain died; McCain's death just cleared Graham out of the shadows enough we noticed he occasionally says something that kinda reminds us why he can claim to be a Republican more often than a Democrat.

I haven't been this counterculture since I was listening to underground punk on pirate radio stations in UK during the very early 80s, and I'm not far from a Socialist on some issues!

Bernie caught on tape praising the wonders of food lines and communism.

Republicans have scarcely moved at all. Dems are charging like a herd off the cliff, leftward like the little commie assholes they mostly are. From Pew (you know, that bastion of anti-liberal, hard right conservativism, lol...not! /s):

I'm normally one who always gives the benefit of the doubt, and I actually did in this case. Maybe Smollett has been telling the truth and the brothers just had a vendetta against him? But after reading this, and all of the evidence they have (such as video evidence of the rehearsal) it's clear that the only thing missing at this point is his confession.

I'm sorry, but the facts in this case were idiotically unbelievable from the beginning. If you really thought it was true, you're suffering from Stockholm Syndrome and progressives have beaten you into gullibility.

* Polar vortex cold in Chicago. Hey, let's walk around at 2 a.m. to get a sub!
* It's Chicago, one of the most liberal cities around.
* Two MAGA dudes apparently watch Empire.
* Same two MAGA dudes live in Chicago.
* Same two MAGA dudes recognized Smollet despite the cold weather bundles of clothes burying anyone outside at 2 a.m. in a polar vortex.
* Smollet gets beat to hell but walks home wearing the noose.

Come on now. WTF is believable about a genuine hate crime in any of that?

There is rumor the letter which supposedly started this whole thing was also faked and the letters were cut out from a magazine seized by the police at the apartment the Brothers in question lived in.

Quote:
A magazine is one of the pieces of evidence retrieved from the brother’s home last week during a search conducted by CPD. Investigators also recovered a book of stamps.
Not sure how solid those rumors are but in for a penny, in for a pound(me in the ass prison).

And apparently the attackers and the skirmish left his subway sandwich completely intact. Bonus points for respecting the art of the Subway sandwich artists!

Indeed, it was very suspect at the time. But still, there was room for doubt.
  • Polar vortex cold in Chicago. Hey, let's walk around at 2 a.m. to get a sub!
He just returned from a trip, and his flight got in 30 minutes prior to that and the Subway was only a couple of doors down. I've gone out to Waffle House across town at that hour a few times in the past!
  • It's Chicago, one of the most liberal cities around.
  • Two MAGA dudes apparently watch Empire.
  • Same two MAGA dudes live in Chicago.
  • Same two MAGA dudes recognized Smollet despite the cold weather bundles of clothes burying anyone outside at 2 a.m. in a polar vortex.
These are suspicious, but they do not indicate lying. It just means the circumstances are suspect. Those points only support that it was probably not MAGA dudes, not that the attack didn't happen. People can claim to be MAGA dudes without actually being MAGA dudes.
  • Smollet gets beat to hell but walks home wearing the noose.
And he still had his sandwich too. However, people in shock have done stranger things.

Not much, but the emphasis there is the "hate crime" and not "crime". The questionable part was not that he got beat up, but that it was two Trump Supporters shouting "MAGA country!" who did it.

Maybe the attackers wanted him to believe it was Trump supporters, but in reality they were just two people who who were looking to intimidate or punish him? I believe one of the initial theories was a lovers quarrel? Maybe even use it as a chance to push an agenda?

Honestly there were no facts up until today, just a bunch of stories. However, once the facts came out today, it was clear what the actual story was.

I'm not sure about the magazine they found, but that they think the letter is fake is no longer a rumor. In the police presser this morning they admitted to this. From this tweet:

Figured it was a hoax from the start, this guy pals around with idiots like Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, they then push an anti lynching bill at exactly the same time. Coincidence? Hardly, the left loves their false flag events to push agendas. They're absolute pros at it.

Babylon Bee is a satirical Christian News Site in the vein of the Onion. They have some pretty clever stuff.

The Fake News is bad and people are so dumb Snopes, the one of the so-called holders of truth, fact checked a Babylon Bee article about Jusse Smollett being offered a job at CNN due to his ability to make up "facts" and stories on the spot and get people to believe it regardless of content.

And it isn't the first time. A while ago the Bee put out an article about CNN buying an industrial strength washer with a super spin cycle to "Spin the news" which Snopes also decided to fact check.

Here are the original articles in all their glory!

Jussie Smollett Offered Job At CNN After Fabricating News Story Out Of Thin Air

Quote:
"Smollett has exactly the kind of skills we look for at our fine organization," said CNN correspondent Brian Stelter. "He picked a narrative, made up all the relevant facts and details, and stuck with his story in spite of glaring holes in the plot. It's hard to find people who understand our core values here at CNN, but Smollett seems to be just the guy for us."
CNN Purchases Industrial-Sized Washing Machine To Spin News Before Publication

Quote:
The custom-made device allows CNN reporters to load just the facts of a given issue, turn a dial to “spin cycle,” and within five minutes, receive a nearly unrecognizable version of the story that’s been spun to fit with the news station’s agenda.
Edit: To be fair people are stupid enough they've had to fact check The Onion as well.

Holy shit, I haven't watched the Daily Show since Jon Stewart left. This may be the funniest thing to come out of it since then.

I love the Babylon Bee:

4-Hour-Long Political Lecture To Be Disguised As Awards Show

Quote:
HOLLYWOOD, CA—A report coming out of Hollywood this afternoon revealed that a 4-hour-long political lecture scheduled for Sunday will be disguised as an awards show in order to drum up interest.

"See, if we just asked people to tune in for four hours of virtue-signaling and political posturing, we'd have zero viewers," said one of the show's organizers. "If we want to keep the three or four viewers we still have left, we have to pretend the purpose of this ceremony is to hand out awards for excellent movies released in the last year."

People going to the stage ostensibly to accept an award and say a few words about what it means to them will instead lecture the nation on how to behave and what political party they should support. These people, so-called "actors," will give presentations on subjects ranging from white privilege and wealth inequality to gender bias and immigration. They will then retire to their multi-million-dollar mansions, their good deeds having been completed for the year.

At publishing time, projections had indicated the viewership would be cut in half this year, leaving one bored guy named Clint in San Francisco as the lone person expected to watch the show this year.

LGBT magazine calls Trump racist for pressuring Iran to stop jailing and killing gay people.

Yes, you read that right. No, it is not a piece by the Onion or Babylon Bee. Yes, they are serious, and yes, they are gay advocates.
