Gov. Tony Evers (D-idiot) of Wisconsin has mobilized 500 members of the National Guard prior to the verdict delivery in the Kyle Rittenhouse case. This is a classic case of too little, too late. Evers should be charged with being an accessory to murder. IMO he is a criminal.
The Rittenhouse case is a classic example of an attempted lynching. The media has misrepresented, distorted and outright lied about what happened. Think Nicholas Sandmann or Jussie Smollett. Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-Moron) wants Rittenhouse locked up and the keys thrown away. The American system of justice is not needed. The prosecutors are buffoons. Andrew Sullivan:
Money quote from the defense lawyer: “It wasn’t until you pointed your gun at him, advanced on him, with your gun (and your hands down) pointed at him, that he fired? Right?” To which Grosskreutz answered:
“Correct.” Here’s how the NYT first described this a year ago, on August 26: “Video footage from the scene of the shooting appears to show Mr. Rittenhouse running and then firing his gun, striking a man in the head. He then flees and is chased by bystanders before tripping, falling to the ground and shooting another man.”
A day later, in another NYT piece (which I relied on at the time), here’s the account of video footage they embedded: “As Mr. Rittenhouse is running, he trips and falls to the ground. He fires four shots as three people rush toward him. One person appears to be hit in the chest and falls to the ground. Another, who is carrying a handgun [Grosskreutz], is hit in the arm and runs away.” Any sense of self-defense there? (And when you watch the full version of the same video on YouTube, you see that, for some reason, the NYT cut off the key moment showing Rittenhouse’s self-defense — the moment that proved so critical in court!)
I’ve watched every second of every video of the events in Kenosha. Kyle Rittenhouse was running away from Joseph Rosenbaum. Rosenbaum was violent that night and repeatedly threatened to kill Rittenhouse. It was only when Rittenhouse came to a parking lot he had no where to go that he turned around. Rosenbaum then lunged for the weapon and Rittenhouse fired.
Later Rittenhouse was being chased down the street again as he wants to contact the police when he tripped and fell. Immediately one loon jumps into the air and kicks Rittenhouse in the head. For his trouble he limps away with a strained ankle. Then Anthony Huber smashes Rittenhouse on the head with a skateboard and tries to take Rittenhouse’s weapon from him. Only then does Rittenhouse shoot him. Then comes Grosskreutz.
If you watch carefully you see that Grosskreutz and Rittenhouse lock eyes. Grosskreutz then raises his hands as if to signal that he wants to aid Rittenhouse. Then suddenly Grosskreutz charges at Rittenhouse, draws his weapon and aims it at Rittenhouse’s head. Rittenhouse then shoots Grosskreutz in the arm. Grosskreutz absolutely intended to kill Rittenhouse.
Much is made of Rittenhouse “crossing state lines” by the left wing media as though it was some kind of a crime. There were reasons Rittenhouse was there.
I just learned that Rittenhouse’s dad, grandma, aunt, uncle, and cousins live in Kenosha.
Was this reported ANYWHERE before the trial?

He had a day job in Kenosha. He worked at a pool in Kenosha. His best friend lived in Kenosha. The night before, he spend the night at his friend’s house in Kenosha. The day before, he was cleaning a school in Kenosha. He lived a short commute away from Kenosha.

Curiously, no major media chain reported this, nor were they interested in any facts that might divert attention from their malicious predetermined effort to destroy Rittenhouse. CBS described Rittenhouse as a murderer despite a lack of a conviction. Some of them even called this a racial killing despite the victims being white. This has been a giant media clusterf**k. It is absolute malpractice.
This is a classic case of self-defense. Knowing they’re going to lose, the cretin prosecutors now are looking for lesser charges to pile on Rittenhouse. I find that offensive. They should NOT be able to do this now.
Now to Evers. Evers initially sent 125 National Guard troops to Kenosha. The next day he doubled it to 250 and refused Trump’s offer to send thousands more from adjacent states. Once the riots broke out Evers agreed to Trump’s offer but it was too late. Two were dead and the riots resulted in $50 million in damages.
Had Evers accepted the Trump’s offer there likely would have been far less damage and very possibly no deaths. But Evers has no regrets about any of it.
Evers is the one who should be trial, not Kyle Rittenhouse.
