An Illinois state appellate court has ruled Jussie Smollett can be released from jail on bond while lawyers appeal his conviction for staging a hate crime.

I’m so old, I remember when Reality was supposed to have a “liberal bias.”And Reality has been doing violence to much of the Left’s cherished agenda for the past few days.
Leftist ideas can’t withstand debate. Leftists know that, which is why they’re always trying to silence their opponents, generally in the name of some sort of decency or compassion that they themselves spectacularly lack.
