It would be very easy for any Republican politician to stand out as a leader by making a strong statement about due process, the constitution, law and order. “This is our victory” would be a great rallying statement. A unique opportunity to ride a wave of jubilant public sentiment.
Notice that Biden, Kamala, Cuomo, DeBlasio, Newsom, and the entire lineup of congressional Democrats all spoke out openly today in defense of a child rapist, a domestic abuser, and a grandma beater. Who on our side spoke in defense of Rittenhouse, found not guilty on all charges by a jury? Who are our leaders? Our champions? Do they exist?
Our opponents are so faithful to their cause, they’ll go to bat for a buggerer of little boys who ran around screaming the n-word in public. The cause stinks but you got to admire the loyalty. We have a much better cause but there’s no political force behind it.
Of course, the only person in the country who has no idea who Kyle Rittenhouse is happens to be my husband.
I tried to summarize the story for him but it’s so crazy, I don’t think he believed me.
What? There is season 2 of Tiger King? Is another lockdown coming or am I paranoid?
Not guilty on all counts!
I’m crying into my soup in the office. (It’s lunchtime).
What a great day.
It’s clearly a hung jury at this point, right?
The government outsourced its monopoly on violence to the BLM in 2020. And as a result, a teenager who tried to step into the void created by the government’s withdrawal from its duties will be either forced to accept a plea deal or will spend the rest of his life in endless trials.
Releasing violent felons into a civilian population and letting them destroy and assault with impunity is a very old strategy of terrorizing people into compliance. As I said before, BLM are the shock troops of the neoliberal biosecurity state.
