Media sacrifices Rittenhouse at altar of its lies

Erielle Davidson of the Claremont Institute nailed the reason for the blatantly biased media coverage of Kyle Rittenhouse.

She tweeted, "Admitting Rittenhouse acted in self-defense would take admitting that the riots last summer were not 'mostly peaceful.' Blocks of communities were destroyed by fires, looting, and violence. We have a guy who was delivering first aid on trial for defending himself from rioters."

Rittenhouse went to Kenosha to aid property owners in the wake of rioting and looting For no reason at all, rioters destroyed about 100 used cars at a dealership, causing $2.5 million damage.

The mob was on a self-righteous rampage after a police officer shot a man who was attempting to abduct children.

The media fed the mob with yellow journalism stories. County, state, and federal investigations showed the shooting was justifiable. No charges were filed.

Unable to railroad a police officer, the media has made Rittenhouse a surrogate. They call him a white supremacist, but the men he shot were white. They also had criminal records and were engaged in a riot.

The trial has revealed the prosecution has nothing on Rittenhouse. Clearly, the men he shot were attacking him. One tried to grab his rifle. Another hit him with a skateboard. Another pulled a handgun on him. 

To its credit, AP talked to former prosecutors in Wisconsin.

AP reported, "Daniel Adams, a former Milwaukee County assistant district attorney who isn't involved in the trial, described Binger's case as incredibly underwhelming."

Adams said, "He's got nothing. I just don't understand it. What are we doing here? We're all kind of scratching our heads."

Kenosha County Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger was terrible.

AP reported, "Binger called Gaige Grosskreutz to the stand on Monday. Grosskreutz testified he thought Rittenhouse was going to kill him, but on cross-examination he acknowledged that he ran up to Rittenhouse and pointed a pistol at him a split-second after Rittenhouse shot Huber.

"'That's a pretty clear case of self-defense,' said Paul Bucher, a former Waukesha County district attorney who isn't involved in the case. 'When he has a handgun (and) was in the process of pointing it, that would give me great pause as to whether I'd even charge that.'

"'Rittenhouse testified Wednesday that Joseph Rosenbaum threatened to kill him twice, that Anthony Huber hit him with the skateboard twice before he shot him, and that Grosskreutz pointed his pistol at him after first raising his hands in a surrender gesture."

Rittenhouse, 18, broke down during his testimony. USA Today, MSNBC, and other outlets used their columnists to call his breakdown "crocodile tears."

Several black militants used this trial to advance their agenda. The headline for a column by Ja'han Jones (who works on Joy Reid's show) said, "The man charged with homicide in the deaths of two anti-police brutality protesters put on quite the show for a nearly all-white jury this week." 

Kenosha County is 88% white and 5% black. The defendant and the three men he shot are white.

But race is all Jones and her boss Reid have. If they had to go by talent instead of their racist blather, they would be unemployable.

The American media, perhaps with the exception of AP now, wants an innocent man to go to prison for life. And Rittenhouse is presumed innocent in the eyes of the law. And the prosecutor failed to prove his case.

Erielle Davidson is correct in observing that the trial is an indictment of the summer of 2020.

An acquittal means the riots in Kenosha in 2020 were not mostly peaceful protests. An acquittal means the media lied. And it was an organized lie not unlike the Russian Collusion Hoax or the January 6 storming of the Capitol by a few hundred of the 100,000 people who showed up for Trump's rally at the National Mall.

  1. When the adult authorities would not defend Israel, David stepped out in faith to confront the Giant.

    All the Democrat mayors allowed the mobs to burn their cities. They did so under orders from the Soros/Obama Syndicate.

    Rittenhouse never should have been put in the position to confront the Democrat Paramilitary mobs in the first place.

    Thanks, Obama.

  2. The prosecutor is engaging in escalating misconduct to force the judge to declare a mistrial. He doesn’t want to lose this case and spoil his record. The judge won’t enter a directed verdict or declare a mistrial because he wants this case to go to the jury. He doesn’t want the political fallout to land on his shoulders. The jury has already been intimidated - the sheriff intercepted someone videotaping them already. You know there’s plenty more besides him. The jury is frightened of the fallout to themselves and their families. Their best way out of this mess is a hung jury. Who knows, maybe they’ll find him guilty on the gun count. Maybe all the counts. In any event, I don’t see much chance of an acquittal. I sincerely hope I’m wrong.

    2. A mistrial with prejudice would put it all on the judge who probably could handle it.

    3. The judge seems to be excellent. Not taking any crap from the DA’s office. That’s why he is now being attacked for his Asian food comment.

    1. That, I disagree with.
      The kid has a hero complex. He did what he had to do.
      But a hero, no.

      Delete
    2. No - I think a hero is not a bad description. Others were heroes there. Who came to help when law enforcement and govt officials sat on their hands. Kyle probably didn't expect to get this deeply involved. But he did, as the fog of war rarely goes as planned. But in the midst of the craziness he seems to have kept his head.

    3. And I should also note, he clearly knew how to handle a weapon.

    4. Again, I disagree. I think those serving in the military are heroes. Those who worked in hospitals are heroes.Volunteer firefighters and cops are heroes. Those who work as cashiers during pandemic are heroes.
      Those who died or were injured in Afghanistan during FJB horrible surrender are heroes.
      Kyle Rittenhouse is not a hero. He did what had to do and got rid a pedophile and some thugs.
      But he is not a hero with the hero complex.

      Delete
    5. Yeah - you seem fixated on the title, not the function. But I understand. The more I think about it, the more I like L Nettles descriptor. And your continual use of "hero complex" gives me more reason to disagree with your argument.

    6. I don't Rittenhouse set out to be a hero. He became one though because of his courage and actions.

  7. I had never thought of this, but yes, that is why they are coming after him. One, it does put to lie in legal terms that these were "protestors, mostly peaceful. It also shows that concerted action by citizens can destroy Antifa's protest strategy.

    That is dangerous, as it eliminates the dems storm troopers from the field of action.

  11. Maybe Kyle can get rich with a malicious prosecution lawsuit against the soro's da and his gang. Add in the money from suits against the media and maybe he can make more than Nick Sandman. He certainly was put through more hell.

  13. The process is the punishment. It doesn't matter if Kyle Rittenhouse is found guilty or not, a clear message has been sent, do not get involved and try doing the right thing.
    That not guilty verdict matters to Mr. Rittenhouse, and it matters to me. That said, when this happens again, will anyone be willing to protect business owners? Will anyone dare to put out the dumpster fires?
    Our founding fathers were willing to risk their lives wealth and good names for freedom. Kyle Rittenhouse is that kind of person. Sorry Dan, he IS a hero.

  14. Those asses who said/wrote Kyle was faking it in his breakdown while testifying know nothing.
    I was in navy subs in the 1960s. I had drinks in Rota, Spain with two guys off of the USS Scorpion sub which about a week later was lost with all hands. Later that year my sub had an underwater collision and I and everyone else thought we were waiting for our deaths. When my son retired over 20 years later from the navy and subs, at the ceremony, all that came back for some reason and what I saw happen to Kyle happened to me; unable to speak, shaking uncontrollably, hardly able to breathe with no tears in my eyes, it took all too many minutes for me to recover.
    I have never been the emotional type, but it happened to me over two acquaintances' deaths and a potentially deadly incident I was involved in my mid twenties; not after having killed two people as Kyle has to face in court and live with.

  15. Why, Don, would you give Hamas shielding AP a pass? I've seen the trash they've been pushing about this trial. If they have written anything truthful or supportive about Kyle or the judge, it's an anomaly.
    Rest assured they'll be up bright and early tomorrow, buckets in hand, ready and will to carry water for the left.

  17. The videos of Kyle defending himself gives us a glimpse of the fog of war. He had to make split-second decisions in order to defend himself, in spite of being struck multiple times in the head.I doubt that many commenting here are could have survived as he did.

  23. This is a political trial. The evidence is almost as thin as Trump's 2nd impeachment by Marxist operatives in the Democrat party. Millions of people have used firearms to defend themselves against perps that will assault and kill you unless you defend yourself. The government abandoned its responsibility to protect businesses from rioters. Rittenhouse assumed part of that responsibility to defend them. Unfortunately in the process he wad forced to protect his own life from those determined to take his.

  24. I completely agree with both the author and BlackJEM. The media/democrats/big tech don't want to have to admit that their comments are really a sinister narrative that the riots were mostly peaceful and justified and that patriotic law abiding Americans have the ability and will to take back their power from that lawlessness. When this trial is over and Kyle is acquitted, he needs to turn and sue - including Biden for his comments.

  25. Had Kyle not defended himself, he himself would probably be dead, and we wouldn't have heard a peep about it.

  26. Instead of Kyle being dead,two deserving criminals are dead. And Obama and his puppet-masters need their just reward! Joe is nothing but an empty shell being used by the worst evil people in the world.
