Kyle Rittenhouse’s trial came to a close today, with remarks on Twitter by the usual suspects that are so breathtaking I would be remiss not to immortalize them here.
Employers, consider giving your Black employees a day or two off after the Rittenhouse verdict. Regardless of the outcome, it’s going to be hard for Black people to work and it isn’t fair to expect them to.

No one involved on either side of the shootings were Black, but I guess self-defense at a BLM riot is traumatizing enough for the entire race that they ought to get a couple days off work. How’s that for an excuse for a day off?
A movement voice pointed out the following:
The process is always the punishment. They have terrified gun owners into hesitating before currently using their guns to protect themselves. They have delivered the message that you can’t go into the areas that their foot soldiers are destroying, or they will come after you.

That’s the key, and what we saw in closing arguments. Prosecutor Fatty said that Kyle should not have had a gun at the protest. But if one cannot protect property during a violent riot, when can one protect it? Is that not the best time to be protecting property?
Remarks by prosecutors in their closing argument and rebuttal defy reason:
lol fatty is actually saying Grosskreutz would have had every right to shoot Rittenhouse, unbelievable.

Tomi Lahren remarked that it is the very concept of self-defense that is on trial:
Kyle Rittenhouse isn’t just on trial, self defense is. Kyle dared to save his own life from an angry mob of thugs who weren’t used to being stopped but rather emboldened by Democrats and the media.

What a horrible shitshow. If Kyle couldn’t defend himself from people raising guns against him, grabbing for him, and swarming him as a mob, what hope does that leave any of us?
It’s all about the religion of Anti-Racism and the fact that Kyle violated its tenets by daring to protect property during a BLM riot. Self-defense means nothing to them now. It’s all about enabling unlimited anarcho-terror to usher in a new era of racial “equity,” with riots as a key mechanism of cathartic cleansing that is necessary to advance our “National Conversation on Race”.
