Kyle Rittenhouse trial was designed to protect white conservatives who kill
The shooter’s homicide acquittal coddles conservatives and may lead to even more violence.

Kyle Rittenhouse, who fatally shot two protesters and wounded a third during anti-police brutality demonstrations in Wisconsin last year, has been found not guilty of homicide — an outrageous yet unsurprising verdict in a trial marred by controversy.
Rittenhouse, who is white, was 17 when he traveled from his hometown in northeast Illinois to the protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year armed with his semi-automatic rifle. On the night of Aug. 25, 2020, as he carried his gun through the streets, Rittenhouse shot dead Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, and wounded Gaige Grosskreutz, now 27.

Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all five charges he faced, which included first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree recklessly endangering safety and attempted first-degree intentional homicide.
The case had the makings of an acquittal before the trial even began. The outcome seemed clear even before an almost exclusively white jury pool was selected, even before Judge Bruce Schroeder created an uproar by ruling that the slain protesters could be referred to as “rioters” and “looters” but not “victims," even before Schroeder refused to punish Rittenhouse for what prosecutors said amounted to a violation of his bond conditions. Rittenhouse is a white teen who abides by white rules, and white people empathetic to those rules seemed poised to insulate him from repercussions.
The day he pleaded not guilty to felony homicide, Rittenhouse flashed a white supremacist symbol and was “loudly serenaded” by a group of men at a bar who belted out the anthem of the Proud Boys, a far-right extremist group, according to prosecutors.
On the night of the shooting, minutes before Rittenhouse opened fire, police in Kenosha thanked the rifle-toting teen and offered him water as he walked the streets. “We appreciate you guys, we really do,” one officer told him.
Law enforcement — including a department known to cover up its own lawless acts of violence — seemed to give cover to Rittenhouse from the get-go.
With these endorsements, white conservatives felt all the more comfortable swaddling Rittenhouse in the protection they often give to police and vigilantes serving white conservative interests — from George Zimmerman to Mark and Patricia McCloskey. Rittenhouse is just their latest darling, pitifully seeing heroism in an armed teen who set out to patrol pro-Black protests as though he were police.
Pitiful as they are, we can’t dismiss his supporters as conservatives merely taking sides in a political squabble. Last year, then-President Donald Trump’s administration issued talking points to Homeland Security officials claiming Rittenhouse went to Kenosha to “defend small business owners.” Conservative media figures have eagerly repeated those claims. Their support for Rittenhouse isn’t a counterweight to progressive social policies like equitable policing — their support is a physical threat to people supporting those policies.
Conservatives are encouraging white vigilantes like Rittenhouse to police progressive spaces by all means. As one Slate article put it last year, “'Own the Libs' Is Gradually Morphing Into 'Kill the Libs.'”
The jury’s decision was a dangerous endorsement of that vision.

Useless babble, they are finding less and less people to peddle this to.

After the Rittenhouse verdict, MSNBC cuts to Jacob Blake's uncle speaking. Except it's not Jacob Blake's uncle at all. This entire trial has been HUGE embarrassment for MSNBC.

Lets go Brandon!
So, FOXnews said the White House will be making a statement soon? about the verdict.

I suspect they will stoke the flames, but I hope not.

ETA: is there anything the FEDs can go after him for? If so, I suspect Biden or Merrick will be all smiles.
Don't give a hootin hell about what the White House says about this.
 
It's a relief. It shouldn't have been an issue or been this hard.

Apparently according to some live coverage someone fired just before Rittenhouse fired, and there will be more judicial process involving that to go after that person, so the prosecution will not be talking. But the prosecution should face sanctions now, not after they get to go after someone else.

Are you sure about that?
Very likely. I'm afraid the jurors are going to have a bad next couple of months....
If they get targeted, they should be vocal about it and patriots go to their aid. They deserve it. Even the two Karen's.


In normal situations, this verdict should not have required so much bravery on the part of the jury. But these are not normal times, and the commies should not be allowed to sully this.

About time! That poor young man has been thru enough. Now about those defamation suits......? I hope he makes a mint! There was another thread about the legacy media replacing some of their talking heads. If the did it before the defamations suit dose that mean the media isn't financially responsible for the fines and damages?

Black Friday Christmas shopping starts tonight
Many blue light specials
All that you can carry
That will temporarily distract an amazingly high number of Karens. Excellent timing.

Good. Another one to sue.

NOT ONE SENTENCE of this tripe has a TRUE statement.

Noticed the writer who is trying to make this about race--didn't have the courage to put in a "like" or "dislike" button on his blog post--nor did MSNBC.
