Rittenhouse, an innocent man goes free—rioters get a pass


Nothing short of vilification and guilt would have sufficed

Outrageous fabrications, disproven by evidence, is all that supports the left

Truth at last—the left is against that, self-defense, firearms, individual rights

In flurries of fury Democrats and leftists denounced Kyle, the verdict and explained:
[Quotes from broadcast, online and print sources, a followup to JPFO's post about what the right is saying]

“A 17 year old white supremacist domestic terrorist... He shot and killed 2 people who had assembled to affirm the value, dignity, and worth of Black lives.” –Ayanna Pressley, Member of Congress (false)

Kyle Rittenhouse was “underage... had his mother drive him across state lines...he appointed himself a militia member... he ends up unloading 60 rounds...” –MSNBC Joe Scarborough (false), his statement was read into the trial transcript as an example of media bias; Watch for yourself:

“Democrats compete to condemn the outcome as racist and an indictment of the American system of justice (true)... it highlights the systemic racism in the country’s judicial system.” –Yahoo News (false)

“It sends the unacceptable message that armed civilians can show up in any town, incite violence, and then use the danger they have created to justify shooting people in the street.” –CNN (false)

“No reasonable person viewing all of the evidence could conclude that Mr. Rittenhouse acted in self-defense… Mr. Rittenhouse came to Kenosha armed to kill. Kenosha police encouraged him to act violently, and our son is dead as a result.” –Karen Bloom and John Huber

“[Rittenhouse] took the law into his own hands, killing two people and injuring another. They were victims of gun violence and too many families have lost loved ones to these tragedies. – Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis. (false)

“Over the last few weeks, many dreaded the outcome we just witnessed,” said Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes

The justice system’s decision is “unconscionable,” Congressional Black Caucus chair Joyce Beatty (D-Ohio) said in a statement. “The ludicrous claim of self-defense is on par with the abhorrent behavior displayed by the prosecution and the judge.”

“Carrying a gun indicates a desire for bad behavior, white supremacy, vigilantism, terrorism.”

“The judge. The jury. The defendant. It’s white supremacy in action.” The congresswoman said she was “heartbroken...This system isn’t built to hold white supremacists accountable. It’s why Black and brown folks are brutalized and put in cages while white supremacist murderers walk free.” – Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.)

“Today’s acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse continues our nation’s legacy of defending white supremacist violence while stereotyping Black and Brown people as criminals,” Service Employees International Union International President Mary Kay Henry said in a statement. Henry said the verdict also showed white men still can skirt accountability for murder with dubious claims of self-defense.

“Kyle Rittenhouse walks free while Black people are being killed daily by police and vigilantes who face no accountability for the crimes they commit in our communities. It is both heartbreaking and enraging,” Alicia Garza, Principal of Black to the Future Action Fund, said after the verdict.

“He killed two people, he must be guilty of something.” –Unidentified protester

“The left media generally took the side of the rioters, or whom they referred to as demonstrators. According to their narrative, the demonstrators were exercising their First Amendment right and standing up for social justice, even though some of them had criminal records and were the most unjust people imaginable. At the same time, Rittenhouse was characterized as a vigilante or white supremacist.” –Craig Cantoni, national commentator

Don’t forget: The Rittenhouse shooting came after the city of Kenosha erupted in violent racist protests, called “demonstrations” by reporters standing in front of active arson sites, following release of a video showing Jacob Blake, a Black man, getting shot in the back by white police officer Rusten Sheskey. Blake, armed with a knife plainly visible in photos, refused police commands to stop, at the house of his ex-girlfriend who had an order of protection against him for domestic violence, and was not stopped by a Taser or initial police gunshots, and instead got into a car to escape.

Also, gathered from around the web (text and unidentified protestor videos):
•  The Rittenhouse case is proof that open carry doesn’t protect, it incites
•  There wouldn’t be need for a trial or self defense if Kyle was unarmed at the riot, demonstration
•  The armed hooligans and rioters are not an issue, neither is the massive property destruction
•  Carrying the gun made Kyle feel threatened, else he wouldn’t have felt that way
•  It’s Kyle’s fault, that there was a need for self defense, if it was that, which it wasn’t
•  This is vigilantism, and now justifies an increase of that horror among unstable people nationally
•  The case was clearly racist and led by white supremacists (though blacks were rioting)
•  Not into vigilantes or 17-year-olds playing sheriff
•  The trial was just a legal loophole to get Rittenhouse off
•  They may have pointed guns at him but they didn’t pull the trigger
•  A skateboard isn’t a weapon (true, legally it’s called a “dangerous instrument,” depending on use)

This could continue ad infinitum. Let’s stop here, with ten fabrications listed by The New York Post, created by the left out of thin air, to vent hatred, spew bile and convince themselves of what isn’t true:

He killed two black protesters (false); The gun was illegal (false); He was an “active shooter” (false)

Kyle’s mom drove him across state lines to the ‘protest’ (false; and note that the ‘protest’ was a full-on riot with 100 cars torched, buildings burned, looting rampant)

Rittenhouse is a “white supremacist” (false; source, president Joe Biden)

He flashed white power hand signs with members of the Proud Boys (false)

He wore surgical gloves to hide his fingerprints (false, he is a medic and provided care; source, actor Mathew Modine, who also publicly speculated Kyle went with “intent to kill”)

The judge is a “Trumpy racist” (false, judge Schroeder is a democrat, appointed by democrat governor)


“Of all the willful lies and omissions in the media’s coverage of the Steele dossier, Brian Sicknick, the Covington kids, Jussie Smollett, the Wuhan lab, Hunter Biden’s laptop and so on, nothing beats the evil propaganda peddled about Kyle Rittenhouse.” –New York Post, America’s oldest newspaper

Normally, the public has nothing to go on but media reports. Because the trial was televised, the public could see through the outright bias and lies of the “news” media. “Only because the public was able to hear the evidence for themselves did they become aware of the malevolent dishonesty of the media coverage, which has threatened a fair trial and ensured riots if Kyle is justly acquitted.” –New York Post


Support JPFO, speaking truth to power

“Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, is America’s most aggressive civil-rights organization, dedicated to destroying the notion of 'gun control' as any kind of credible public-policy position. So-called 'gun control' does not control guns and doesn’t control criminal behavior. What it does is disarm the innocent, leaving them helpless in the face of criminals, tyrannical governments and genocide. History repeatedly proves this fact. Founded in 1989 by Aaron Zelman as a response to the Holocaust, JPFO speaks with the moral authority and tenacious commitment of survivors of persecution, and knows that surrendering your personal and family safety to government protection courts disaster. You don’t have to be Jewish to fight by our side, you just have to love liberty.”
