Conservatives may have a hard time isolating one thing that can be considered the greatest weakness of the left. Some would say they suffer from intellectual weakness, but we’ve seen too many truly intelligent leftists over the years. Others would say it’s their surface-level morality. This may be true, as most leftists base their morals on a surface level examination rather than digging deeper into issues. This is why many of them think the welfare state must grow instead of shrink.
To me, their biggest weakness is that they’re so gullible. They fall for every perceived injustice regardless of how insane the accusation. If MAGA-folks can be blamed for something, the left tends to believe it. After all, it’s easier for them to believe in the evil of the right than to believe card-carrying progressives like Nathan Phillips, Brenda Snipes, or Jussie Smollett are hiding the truth.

After last month’s report that Empire actor Jussie Smollett was assaulted by two white men who beat him, splashed bleach on him, tied a noose around his neck, and told him “this is MAGA country,” the rebukes from the left against the “MAGA bigots” was swift and harsh. While many on the right were skeptical that two men in masks were out late at night in -20 degree temperatures seeking out a black, gay celebrity to attack, there seemed to be zero skepticism from some of the left’s most outspoken folks.
I am incensed. @JussieSmollett We love you and have your back. I pray for your swift physical recovery, and continued mental and emotional healing from this horrendous, violent display of racism and homophobia. https://t.co/wqq7izUksu

.@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.

What happened to Jussie is yet another reminder that when folks claim “the LGBT community” is diverting attention from Black folks’ fight for justice, they are willfully disregarding the fact that Black LGBT are the most vulnerable of us all. We have to ride for them, they are US

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. https://t.co/EwXFxl5f2m

.@JussieSmollett beaten by white men who said “aren’t you that f***ot 'Empire' n*****?" put a noose around his neck, poured bleach on him and yelled “this is MAGA country”. But tell @Alyssa_Milano she’s wrong for calling red MAGA hats the new white KKK hoods. #BlackLivesMatter https://t.co/mA3FXAieim

I’ve been trying to figure out all day what to say about the racist, homophobic, violence against @JussieSmollett.
Not sure I can describe what I’m feeling in a neat & tidy tweet. His trauma deserves more.
I’m sad. Living together on the planet shouldn’t be this difficult.

The reported hate attack on my friend and brother, actor Jussie Smollett is despicable and outrageous. The guilty must face the maximum.

Jussie Smollett was violently attacked by two white men who poured bleach on him and put a noose around his neck. He was targeted for being black and for being gay. THIS is why we have to have zero tolerance against homophobia and racism. Jussie’s life matters.

As fate would have it, this appears to be a hoax crime designed to draw sympathy for the actor:
Jussie Smollett has turned from a presumed victim to suspect in the criminal investigation into the alleged racist, homophobic attack, and sources say there is mounting evidence the 2 brothers who were arrested and subsequently released were acting at Jussie’s behest and reportedly paid.
Our sources say the brothers — both of whom worked on the “Empire” set — “completely cooperated” with Chicago cops during their interrogation over the last few days.
One law enforcement source tells TMZ at least one of the brothers turned over his phone and there is a call between him and Jussie in the vicinity of the “attack,” but before it happened.
The left’s desire to believe anything that paints Trump supporters in a negative light blinds them to obvious falsehoods. Jussie Smollett’s story was difficult for rational people to believe, but hatred for MAGA makes otherwise rational people unhinged and gullible.
