Progressives are not over the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict.
These are from suspended or deleted accounts, so I can’t embed them here:
The Twitter accounts posted below are still live. I pause to note American Renaissance and Jared Taylor are still not allowed on Twitter, though neither account ever broke any Twitter rules.
Rep. Cori Bush:
The judge. The jury. The defendant.
It’s white supremacy in action.
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.
I’m hurt. I’m angry. I’m heartbroken.

Why is black capitalized but not brown?

If America really was founded on the kind of racial principles Joy Reid describes, we would have far fewer problems. Unfortunately, the Founders took America’s racial character for granted rather than spelling it out explicitly.
Democrat candidate for attorney general of Texas, Lee Merritt:
Joseph Rosenbaum was entitled to self defense.
Anthony Huber was entitled to self defense.
Gaige Grosskreutz was entitled to self defense.
Ahmaud Arbery was entitled to self defense.
Cameron Lamb was entitled to self defense.
Kyle Rittenhouse was not.
That is the law.

The ACLU strays further from its supposed mission each day:
His acquittal comes after our investigation exposed how Kenosha law enforcement used violence against protesters and drove them toward white militia groups, in ways that escalated tensions and almost certainly led to these shootings.

The verdict in the #KyleRittenhouse case is a travesty and fails to deliver justice on behalf of those who lost their lives as they peacefully assembled to protest against police brutality and violence.

Samantha Bee, a progressive “comedian”:
Acquitting Kyle Rittenhouse sends a message to future Kyle Rittenhouses that they're free to incite violence and then claim self-defense. This is not justice.

Podcast host and “activist” Malynda Hale:
Please stop acting like you don’t know what this is. He murdered two people. And will walk free. You’ve never in your life heard of a POC that killed two people and got to walk free. #WhitePrivilege

Actor Mark Ruffalo, best known for playing “The Hulk” in the never-ending series of Marvel films:
We come together to mourn the lives lost to the same racist system that devalues Black lives and devalued the lives of Anthony and JoJo. #ReimagineKenosha

“Jojo” refers to the late child rapist Joseph Rosenbaum. You may remember him as the short man screaming “shoot me nigga!” He got his wish. He had mental problems, reportedly did not get his medication, and may have literally been seeking suicide. “Joseph Rosenbaum died as he had lived, trying to touch an unwilling minor,” in Tucker Carlson’s words.

We’re nearing the point where “white” seems to mean “automatically guilty.”
Television host Amber Ruffin claims to say some “very big obvious truths that no one wants to say on TV but I will.” She then recites conventional liberal talking points:
In case you needed to be reminded of this after today's verdict. pic.twitter.com/CufF7l3vtw
— amber ruffin (@ambermruffin) November 20, 2021
Here are some actual obvious truths that we don’t get to hear. Blacks disproportionately commit crime, including against their own people. They enjoy official privileges in jobs and education by government decree. Even the “right-wing” presidential candidate in the last election wanted to give them more set-asides.
The obvious truth staring white America in the face is that we’ve torn down our society in a failed attempt to create a phony equality. We can’t babysit these people any longer. We owe them nothing. They owe us. We deserve apologies, reparations, and freedom from our corrupt ruling class.
Kyle Rittenhouse wasn’t convicted because, in America, white reasoning rules https://t.co/KDZnLowCJW
— Guardian US (@GuardianUS) November 20, 2021
Author Michael Harriot, no stranger to these pages, argues that the assumption that “Black people are scary” is embedded in American law. It may simply be that Americans know the real Color of Crime in this country, though we must often pretend otherwise. Mr. Harriot recognizes that Mr. Rittenhouse didn’t shoot any black people, but still wrote an article critiquing what “reasonable” means in American law. His point is that whites automatically think blacks are dangerous, and that this emboldens them to shoot blacks.
My takeaway is that whites and blacks can’t agree even on what “reasonable behavior” means. In that case, let’s just admit Jefferson was right and that the “two races, equally free, cannot live in the same government.” Our differences are simply too great.
MSNBC’s Mehdi Hasan:
It is difficult to express in words, or even via stats, how messed up the U.S. ‘justice’ system is, & how riddled with double standards it is.
Does anyone – even the most conservative person – really believe a black man or a Muslim like me would have been acquitted, too?
— Mehdi Hasan (@mehdirhasan) November 19, 2021
Does anyone really believe it would have even been prosecuted?
Don’t forget President Joe Biden smearing Kyle Rittenhouse last year, among many others.

Another liberal scold-cum-comedian, Chelsea Handler:
Tamir Rice was 12-years-old when he was killed for holding a toy gun. Kyle Rittenhouse killed 2 people and was found not guilty. A justice system built by white people, to benefit white people, while families who have lost loved ones are given no solace.

Friends, please understand these people probably watched the same footage you did. They still think Kyle Rittenhouse was guilty. Be safe out there.
