Jussie faces justice — why not Althea?

Chicago’s hoaxer being tried on criminal charges;
Madison’s fabulator gets off scot free!

Jussie Smollett goes on trial today to answer for the hoax he (O.K., “allegedly”) pulled in Chicago back in January 2019. His story (and he’s sticking to it): the black TV actor went out for a submarine sandwich in 20-below zero weather after midnight but was assaulted by two white men who poured bleach on him and wrapped a noose around his neck. Which he conveniently wore into the police station.

The City of Chicago expended thousands of hours investigating Smollett’s fable; the city’s reputation was besmirched, Smollett poisoned race relations throughout the nation.

Smollett is charged with six low-level felonies — but only after Cook County’s Woke district attorney originally refused to prosecute. Chicago’s police union demanded a second look; a judge appointed a special prosecutor.

Althea's response
Still lying!

Would that Madison’s police union showed the same spine! The Emerald City has its own faker, 18-year-old Althea Bernstein. 

Burning with victim envy

On the June 2020 night that Capitol statues were torn down and city hall firebombed, the biracial woman concocted her own “Juicey Smo-lee-yay.” Four white “frat boys” squirted lighter fluid into the open window of her car whilst stopped for a red light at the intersection of State and Gorham Streets. Except that downtown Madison is on camera 24/7 and no evidence of the assault could be found.

U.S. Attorney Scott Blader concluded:

After a thorough investigation into the events of June 24, 2020, including extensive interviews, exhaustive review of traffic and surveillance video, and expert review of digital and forensic evidence, federal investigators determined that there is insufficient evidence to prove that a violation of any federal criminal statute occurred. Further, after reviewing all available evidence, authorities could not establish that the attack, as alleged by the complainant, had occurred.

We reproduced video of Ms. Bernstein driving through the intersection unmolested. Not even a red light. As we said then, Althea Bernstein cost taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars on a wild goose chase. “The Madison Police Department dedicated significant resources to this case,” acting Police Chief Vic Wahl said in October 2020.

Who’s got ‘privilege’?

Victor Davis Hanson makes the same point about Kenosha and Waukesha: why were the four who attacked Kyle Rittenhouse not locked up? “All four whom Rittenhouse fired at … had lengthy arrest records. Three were convicted felons; the fourth had a long arrest record.”

Rittenhouse was held on $2 million bail while Darrell Brooks was released on paltry bail! 

An alien from Mars who examined Brooks’s life of crime, his recent violence, and the ease with which he was serially let loose upon the public might have concluded some sort of “privilege” as the cause of exemption. 

In Kenosha the media and the Left ginned up race when there was no such component in the trial. But in Waukesha they kept largely silent when there clearly was racial hatred — given Brooks’ own record of anti-white and anti-Semitic venom. 

We said then that “Althea’s story that was never plausible” except to those — like Mayor Satya, The Capital Times, and other progressives — who put their faith in endemic white racism. Madison’s Woke insomniacs ought to ponder why so many social justice warriors feel they must concoct white hate crimes.

Blaska’s Bottom Line: Dane County does not prosecute our own, local racial arsonist because she identifies as a black victim. Simple as that. Madison has its own John Chisholms.

Why isn’t Madison justice color blind?

    They would never prosecute her because she is black and because the police still believed that “something” happened to her, they just couldn’t prove it.


  2. Kevin S Wymore says:

    Kamala Harris immediately expressed her support for the Juss-meister after he claimed to have been attacked. She said Smollett was a victim of an “attempted modern-day lynching…We must confront the hate.”

    Such a keen judge of character!

    I said then, this gets swept under the carpet.

    Same thing with the Waukesha terrorist.

    As long as the perp is “of colour” you can usually bet on the lying media to bury the story whereas a white male is on the front page for over a year for legal self-defense.

    Justhea Smollstein even wielded a bullhorn at the head of a BLM march last year, escorted by police.

    That is how backwards and upside-down everything is.

    What Althea Bernstein did was clearly a racial hate crime, and you could make the case that it was an attempt to incite a riot. Citing a lack of evidence is complete BS. As you say, they spent tens of thousands of dollars. They have enough video PROOF that her report was fabricated. I believe she spoke to the FBI didn’t she? That would mean lying to the FBI which we have learned repeatedly, is enough by itself to bring charges. You’d think they could have, at the very least, force her to admit and apologize for her fraud, in exchange for no jail. No hard time, as part of a deal to have her accept responsibility for her CRIMINAL ACTIONS. But no, we mustn’t embarrass this delicate woman of color. (And she’s Jewish! She’s a twofer.) Can’t let a victim like that fade away. Not when there’s a local chapter of the Boogaloo Boys probably writing up their charter as we speak.

    In fact, let’s lend some credence to her fraud by giving her police protection while she addresses a gathering of BLM supporters. (Gotta take advantage of her celebrity. You know, use her “platform” for good causes.) She personifies black privilege.

    Well the Smollett case has the 2 brothers that will testify to the fraud.

    No such witnesses for Althea. Yet. I still think it’s just a matter of time before she pisses off someone that knows the truth.

      This being Madison we love to sweep stuff like this under the rug. Otherwise it’s too stressful for Barb, Ellen, Claire, Bill, and Greg. It busts their liberal bubble and makes them squirm and get real cranky.

      A few years ago their was a dorm-dweller of colour who claimed to receive nasty racist notes. Nothing ever came of it and the likely hoax was under the carpet right quick lest university administrators have to expel the REAL perp (finding racist notes in your dorm room is practically a 100% guarantee of a hoax).

    Yet another example of Madison’s unrivalled powers of denial. Here’s another: a few weeks ago one of the local t.v. stations did a story on the difficulties State Street business owners are having. The reporter stood in front of a store with boarded-up windows and interviewed the storeowner about the impact of Covid–and nothing else, certainly nothing about how riots, arson, and looting might have impacted local businesses, to say nothing of how many citizens are now frightened to visit the downtown/State Street area thanks to the continued threat of violence and the proliferation of drug addicts, crazies, and aggressive panhandlers who’ve decided to make their homes on the street corners. I sent her (the reporter) an e-mail asking her to explain how Covid caused the store’s windows to be boarded up. No response, of course.

    The political correctness of the media in Madison and the political leaders of Madison, including the mayor’s office, the city council and the police administration, is not only indicative of political correctness. It is also indicative of neglect of providing public safety to its citizens, and cowardice – fear of alienating some in the Black community that they might turn on them politically. This has existed in Madison for more than 25 years.

      Spot on, Sir Arthur!

      Though I have deep respect for law enforcement and rank and file officers, I sadly have to agree with you about police administration. The exception was Chief Koval.

    Smollett has become a verb. To “smollett” is pulling a racial hoax and claiming victimhood status. It’s Lefty’s favorite tool used by race hustlers, race-baiters and race pimps for personal profit.

    With no justice, … social, economic or racial, … DA Kimesha Foxx dropped the original charges against Smollett. Letting black criminals skate is precedential and par for the proglobotic course, of course. Foxx, … a Soros beneficiary and Obamabot sychophant, is a black racist who’s let 25,000 felons off with no charges because of “systemic racism.”

    Black Supremacy” and Black Privilege” is systemic racism, too.

    Even a Lefty could tell Smollett was lying. Two white men, wearing MAGA hats, identified Smollett on site as he walked down the street, and swooped in to stick a noose around his neck and pour bleach on him? All on one of the coldest nights of the year? UGBFKM. The only way to see the sheer absurdity is to watch a reenactment.


    Every American has a moral obligation to acknowledge these hate hoaxes for the anti-white hate crimes that they are. It’s time to throw the perps behind bars where they belong. If there’s any justice, Juicey “Fruit” Smollett will go to prison and make lots of new friends.


  10. Liberty says:

    I’m deeply distraught by the subversion of justice, from prosecuting people based on politics or perceived politics, to putting repeat offenders back on the streets.

    This is not how our country is supposed to function. It’s not sustainable and it’s not American.


    • richard lesiak says:

      Are you including Michelle Havas, the WA:LKER appointed judge who let the parade guy out on bond. HMMMMM?????


      • Liberty says:

        Shame on her. See, Richard, I have no problem saying this.

        That said, she works for Chisholm and is probably following his lead. This is someone who has advocated for bail reform and who said this:

        “Is there going to be an individual I divert, or I put into treatment program, who’s going to go out and kill somebody? “You bet. Guaranteed. It’s guaranteed to happen. It does not invalidate the overall approach.”


        Chisholm is a Progressive Soros-backed district attorney, who along with other Progressive Soros-backed attorneys, are helping to destroy the country.

        So yeah, Richard, I’ll call out a Republican any day of the week for bad behavior but most of the filthy rot is originating from the left.

        Why can’t you do the same, Richard? Is it a case of not understanding the issues or lacking humility?

    We should take a gander and go way back, way back in the way back machine all the way back to 1960 and every year since then. Let us use the public records to look at the following:

    1. The number and types of crimes committed in Madison as compared to the population to see what percentage of people committed crimes?
    2. The number of people who committed crimes that were repeat offenders?
    3. The number of people who committed crimes that were out on bail?
    4. What was the average bail amount?
    5. What was the average sentence when jail time was served?

    I would be willing to bet that if we could look back to 1960 and every year since then we would find that crime as expressed as a percentage to the population has increased dramatically. Especially violent crime.

    So may I ask, what are we getting for our money? Do you feel safer now than you did back then?
    Why are our public officials continuing to have a catch and release program that allows the thugs to get out of jail and make someone else a victim?

    Or are we just going to spend our money on hoaxes that are just there to stir up racial divisions? Especially when it can be proven that the hoax was a hoax. Why are our government officials and the media not telling we the people that this was just a hoax? Contributing to the narrative?


    • David Gerard says:

      Your hypothesis (“I would be willing to bet that if we could look back to 1960 and every year since then we would find that crime as expressed as a percentage to the population has increased dramatically. Especially violent crime.”) is false and the information is easily obtainable.


    • Gary L. Kriewald says:

      What percentage of Madison’s population in 1960 was black? That’s a statistic more pertinent than any listed above.


  13. Bill Cleary says:

    I have to ask why this is happening. In my opinion the only reason this is happening is MONEY! The justice system in Dane County, Milwaukee County, has become a business. It is just a catch and release program where he criminal gets off and goes back out to re-offend. Where he or she gets to hurt more and more people, but no matter, long as the justice business gets their money, no matter. Coddle the criminal and to hell with the innocent.

    Like they always say. Follow the money.

    America is NOT a racist country.

    There’s so little actual, real racism left in America, that in order to #keephatealive, and divide us, desperate donkeys have to pretend and invent some.

    If Lefties were serious about ending racism,
    they’d stop teaching everyone that they are racist.

    “Would that Madison’s police union showed the same spine! ”

    From where I sit, the Madison police union is weak and submissive. They certainly don’t fight for their members like New York’s PBA or FOP.
