When you stop and think about it, the Kyle Rittenhouse case is a perfect microcosm of America’s woke culture war.
A summer of wanton violence, where police all over the nation were ordered to stand down while criminals looted, burned and killed in the name of BLM, gave rise to some vigilante justice. Imagine that.
That’s one way to look at it. Here’s another:
A 17 year-old white supremacist couldn’t pass up the opportunity to show up in Kenosha, Wisconsin with an assault rifle and kill some heroes who were mostly peacefully protesting racial injustice.
There are three sides to every story: your side, my side and the truth. In the case of Kyle Rittenhouse, that truth is now up to a jury to decide.
That’s all well and good. What isn’t is the way the media, big tech, Joe Biden, and pretty much everyone on the left took the white supremacist position, convicting Rittenhouse in the court of public opinion and lionizing those he apparently defended himself against as “victims,” from the day the incident took place throughout this very public trial.
On a related note, does anyone know exactly why this particular trial has been televised? Seems wrong to me. But that’s neither here nor there.
If Rittenhouse is acquitted there will almost surely be riots and violence and the kid will not have a peaceful day for the rest of his life. All in the name of selfish political gain and media ad revenue.
America may not be a racist nation, but we should all be disgusted by what we have become: a nation of mindless lemmings allowing ourselves to be manipulated by crooked politicians, greedy media and woke big tech.
That’s what’s going down and the Rittenhouse case is just one perfect microcosm of a disease that’s eating away at the very foundation of our culture every day.
