The Kyle Rittenhouse verdict is in, and leftists are pissed. President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris have both made disparaging and frustrating statements about the verdict, and other leftists have too.
California Governor Gavin Newsom breaks his silence to say, “America today: you can break the law, carry around weapons built for the military, shoot and kill people, and get away with it. That’s the message we’ve just sent to armed vigilantes across the nation.”
Party like it’s 1776! But, if most Americans were placed in a situation like Rittenhouse, I hope they act the same. Rittenhouse was only there because local law enforcement and the federal government weren’t allowed to help. Rittenhouse was attacked and reacted. Rittenhouse gave up his bulletproof vest because he was rendering aid and only had the rifle for protection. People want to complain that he had a “scary” rifle, but that’s the gun he was most closely legally allowed to carry. Though Rittenhouse was 17, underage weapon possession was dropped because of a hunting law for carrying a rifle.
The verdict is directly in line with every American’s ability to defend themselves. There’s no question anymore. The muddied incident had people hearing information for the first time even after the incidents that unfolded that night were live-streamed and shared like crazy.
It’s like two different trials were going on. Rittenhouse said, “Mr. Rosenbaum was chasing me. I pointed my gun at him, and that did not deter him. He could have run away instead of trying to take my gun from me, but he kept chasing me. It didn’t stop him.” Gaige Grosskreutz was asked, “It wasn’t until you pointed your gun at him, advanced on him with your gun, now your hands down, pointed at him that he fired, right?” Grosskreutz answered, “Correct.”
That statement alone shows guilt. The person Rittenhouse shot agrees that Rittenhouse didn’t pull the trigger until he pointed his gun at him.
Rittenhouse has to consider the possibility of holding the news outlets, politicians, and others who have called him a White supremacist and other derogatory names. Now that he’s a free man, that will follow him, and if he sues them, he will get a large amount of money. Just look at Nick Sandmann. He reached millions.
The left seems to encourage violence, at least most of them. They were complicit during 2020 as cities were on fire. The daily news would cover the damage, and the nightly news would cover up the riots. Only the independent media outlets covered the real story. CNN even had a banner that said, “fiery, but mostly peaceful protest” on top of coverage of a building burning to the ground that was set on fire by rioters.
