(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) Black Lives Matter rioters and LGBT provocateurs will need to tie themselves into a serious series of Gordian knots trying to explain how the criminal justice system is inherently racist and blatantly biased against gay people, after convicted felon and hate-crime fraudster Jussie Smollett, who is black and gay, was released from jail Wednesday after spending less than a week of a five-month sentence.
Meanwhile, pro-liberty protestors who are being persecuted for exercising their First Amendment rights during the Jan. 6, 2021, demonstration at the U.S. Capitol remain incarcerated, some for upwards of a year, awaiting trial, others after having been sentenced.
The gross disparity did not go unnoticed.

Smollett was sprung, escorted from Cook County jail by a phalanx of personal bodyguards, after an appeals court agreed with his shysters that the disgraced former Empire actor should be free pending the appeal of his conviction.
Smollett was sentenced last week to 30 months of felony probation, with five months served in jail, and ordered that he pay $120,106 in restitution to the city of Chicago and a $25,000 fine.
He spent only two days in Cook County jail’s general population, with the balance spent in a psychiatric unit, reportedly over fears for his mental wellbeing, after the unhinged performance he gave at sentencing.
Smollett was convicted of committing a deplorable hate-crime hoax, with an ensuing investigation that wasted valuable police time and resources in a city facing an all too real crime pandemic, while further inflaming public divisiveness and denigrating actual hate-crime victims.
The appeals court said Smollett could be released after posting a personal recognizance bond of $150,000, meaning he didn’t have to put down any money but agrees to come to court as required, according to the Associated Press.
The noxious brand of Jussie justice was widely mocked and roasted.
HOW THE HELL IS JUSSIE SMOLLETT OUT OF JAIL ALREADY???!!!🤦🏾♀️

In yet another instance of our racist criminal justice system letting down a black man, Jussie Smollett’s attacker has already been released from prison https://t.co/QdRjBqtcFB

Jussie Smollett being released from jail pending his appeal is the greatest sign of white privilege I have ever seen.

“Jussie executed a race crime,” Blaze Media’s Jason Whitlock wrote. “His defense is: ‘If I’m punished for it, you’re all racist.'”
And right on cue, Smollett’s lawyer predictably played the race card.
“Should black men be walked into jail with a class four felony?” said Nenye Uche.
“Shame on you if you think so,” Uche scolded. “People are still trying to lock black men up and it’s a disgrace.”
There is plenty of evidence of racial disparity within our justice system. Only a WaPo columnist could possibly pretend that the Jussie Smollett case belongs in that conversation. https://t.co/OGuKFC9o0O pic.twitter.com/gXQncUpqox

And when a well-connected, social- justice-scheming gay black man who rolls with the elites decides he’s above the law, he walks free. Likely with more than a little help from his friends.
So, Jussie Smollett is already being released, huh.
Must be nice to have friends in high places, especially in a place as corrupt as Chicago, Illinois. pic.twitter.com/hwCGpGnfTw
