Kyle Rittenhouse, police cadet trainee, is the new wingnut hero.

The Kyle Rittenhouse tragedy is one more reason why so many folks are demonstrating against the blue wall of silence. Call them bad apples if you want to, but there are some sadistic policemen and when they act out the good ones look the other way. There is no incentive for them to do otherwise. Thats the system we have now.

Wingnuts say that we have to understand the entire event to see that hero Kyle was only defending himself. I ask them this, "Why was Kyle alone, without support from fellow wingnuts?"

A video of Kyle from a month and half before the killings speaks to who Kyle really is and why the tragedy happened.

Here is a short clip (ignore the wingnut narrator who thinks that the tall girl is a guy) :

Its an argument with one teenage girl against 3 other teens that include Kyle and his sister.

After arguing, Kyle's sister begins the fight by grabbing and holding the taller girl. The third participant, a male, tries to break up the fight by pulling the sister away, but she holds on tight while Kyle gets behind the taller girl and begins delivering roundhouse, full force blows to the girl's head and neck.

After 3 blows, the girl, still being held by the sister, is staggering, but even so, we see hero Kyle move in for at least one more punch before a car blocks our view.

Its hard to believe that this is the first time he's done this kind of thing. It could be a planned attack between brother and sister.

The job of policeman attracts sadistic predators and they set an attitude of justified brutality.


Kyle's Mom: "You're a big time train wreck."

That's where you see the evil, real-life Rittenhouse-Cartman connection.

Folks are pointing to the similarities between

Eric Cartman faking tears for sympathy:

and Kyle's crying testimony:

As an evidence video shows, Kyle is lying about what started the confrontation with Rosenbaum. He pointed his assault rifle at Rosenbaum and others. Rosenbaum got upset and chased him, mistakenly believing that Kyle wouldn't shoot an unarmed man.

Kyle showed him.

Kyle admits that he knew that Rosenbaum was unarmed. He had to, because Rosenbaum had little clothing and video shows that during part of the chase he had both empty hands raised above his head.

On this night the lawlessness was basically limited to middle-of-street dumpter fires and an overturned porta potty.

With all the talk about self-defense, don't forget that Kyle has an assault rifle, with 30 bullets in the clip, strapped securely to his body as he wanders around among protesters and manages to separate from his adult wingnut assault rifle carrying partner.

After pointing his rifle, Kyle was running quickly away from Rosenbaum, then he turned to look at Rosenbaum, and then, at a slower pace, headed for a dark spot between cars, stopped, turned and pointed the assault rifle.

Rosenbaum approached Kyle and grabbed at, maybe tried to swat away, the rifle barrel. Even though the weapon was securely strapped to Kyle's body, Kyle says he was in fear for his life from the unarmed man so he shot Rosenbaum.

Kyle bought the rifle strap shortly before the protest, for the protest. He pointed the rifle at Rosenbaum. Rosenbaum grabbed at the barrel so he was very close to Kyle.

Kyle says to protect himself, he shot Rosenbaum ... 4 times ... 4 shots ... from an assault rifle ... at point blank range ... one in Rosenbaum's back.

The wingnut judge has ruled that evidence of a previous Kyle "fight" is inadmissible. I assume that's the one displayed in the video where Kyle's sister holds the girl while Kyle comes up behind her and round-house punches her in the head at least 4 times. Kyle is a stocky, strong looking kid so, to me, there seems to be a good chance that this girl could have been killed, but the wingnut judge rules this has nothing to do with Kyle actually killing people.

The judge might as well be saying, "only look at how it happened, not why it happened. Don't look at whether Kyle manipulated the situation to seemingly be on the defensive."

The wingnut judge is limiting focus to that night and mainly the immediate moments when Kyle killed.

The wingnut judge has ruled about evidence that 2 weeks before the murders, Kyle said, on video, that he wanted to use his assault rifle to shoot protesters/shoplifters/looters (we can't see it, who knows what they were.) The wingnut judge says the jury can't see this evidence because, in his opinion, it has nothing to do with Kyle's reasoning, his mindset, his intentions, when 2 weeks later he ... ahhhh ... yeah ... shot and killed protesters.

After killing Rosenbaum, Kyle fled toward safety. If he was trying to avoid using his assault rifle, that's where he would have gone before killing Rosenbaum. But now there was a killing and the alarm was spreading. So ... Kyle made a phone call to his buddy, telling him that he just killed someone and then fled onto the main street, into the lights, toward the police lines where some protesters tried

to disarm him.

Kyle fired 2 shots and tried to kill someone who kicked him in the face.

Another person hit Kyle with a skateboard so, as he ran away, Kyle shot him in the back and killed him.

Until this point Kyle has been killing the unarmed. The next person that Kyle shoots has a handgun. This person is close to Kyle trying to grab his rifle when shot in the arm. He was trying to disarm Kyle and didn't want to shoot Kyle or he would have done it from a safe distance.

I guess Americans should feel lucky there aren't more wingnut-with-assault-rifle vs unarmed-protester murders. Maybe it takes the partially formed mind of a sadistic juvenile, swimming in a sea of hate speech, to actually do it. Even so, the trial has shown that some of the adult wingnuts who were present that night are now willing to lie to protect Kyle.

During the trial the wingnut judge's phone rang. The ring tone was one of Trump's rally songs.

The Rittenhouse defense team wants a mistrial. They say their video of the first shooting is not as clear as the one shown to the jury by the prosecution.

This is the second day of deliberation and the jury wants to see that video again.

The defense says that they would have presented a different case if they had known that the jury could see clearly what really happened.

Kyle sat in the witness chair and swore to tell the truth. He lied. His attorneys lied. How does a lesser quality video excuse that?

They fear the close examination of the evidence. They want the wingnut judge to stop the jury and give them a do-over.

Even if the wingnut judge hadn't made rulings that set the defense's stage and frequently interrupted the procecution for no reason,
even if the judge had seen fit to sequester the jury, at least during deliberation,
even if Kyle's recent brutal attack of a teenage girl was allowed into evidence,

The video I quoted above has been censored to adult Youtube members. This article contains a short version or the attack. There are longer videos that show the preceeding argument. That girl is alone. I ask you to think back to your youth. What kind of person does that?


even if the 2 week previous video of Kyle saying he wanted to shoot people with his assault rifle was allowed

that jury was not going to convict Kyle.

They have to raise their families amid the wingnuts with assault rifles.

I'm grateful that they drew the world's attention to the videos.
I'm grateful they forced the defense to show their lies by asking for a mistrial without prejudice.

"Bruh I'm just tryna be famous."


You made it Bruh.

There were many lies told in the Rittenhouse case, beginning with Kyle telling the film journalist that he was an Emergency Medical Technician and that he was venturing away from the group at the carlot to help people. He walked with his assault rifle amid protesters, telling them he was an EMT. The jounalist was filming him. He didn't help anyone, but it was his first step to being famous.

The worst lie was told by the ex-soldier who was Kyle's venturing partner. The guy who let Kyle give him the slip. He testified, under oath, that the first murder victim, Rosenbaum, earlier in the night, told him and Kyle that if he got them alone he would kill them. Another ex-soldier covered this lie.

On it's face it seems to be made up to justify the murder, but there is more than suspicion. On the witness stand, this soldier was shown a brief video of him walking on the sidewalk toward the site where Kyle was shooting the other 2 victims. He was very close. With all the shots he would have seen at least some of what happened. He certainly would remember Kyle walking right past him toward the police vehicles.

And yet, earlier, in testimony for Kyle's defence, he testified that he was somewhere else, far away, and didn't see anything.

He agrees though, that's him in the video.

And he doesn't remember any of that.

I was in a medical clinic once when, in the next room, I overheard a Physician's Assistant giving the introductory rundown to a new nurse. She half jokingly told the nurse, "if you make a mistake I'll protect you as long as you don't kill anyone."

Cops and the military's self protection goes all the way. And that instinct gets exploited.

The wingnut judge also protected Kyle by dimissing the possession charge.

Everyone knows it was illegal possession. Kyle admits it was illegal at his age to even buy the gun. His assault rifle was the main reason his fellow wingnuts at the carlot thought that he was 18.

Even so, the wingnut judge protected Kyle by using a hunting rifle loophole in the law. He knew that Kyle was most likely to be convicted on this charge.

Tucker Carlson spent a segment blasting the fact checkers who said that Kyle violated the possession law.

Reality means nothing to these folks. Its all about what you can get enough people to believe.

What about the folks in Kyle's wake, the dead guys, the maimed guy, the folks that will have to live with the lies they told for Kyle.

And what about the good friend who illegally supplied an assault rifle to a minor, the same guy who took Kyle to his family property to shoot hundreds of rounds from their assault rifles, the same guy who made the connection with the carlot, the same guy who asked Kyle to stay with him on the carlot roof where it was safe.

That guy is in serious legal trouble, but not Kyle. There will be lawsuits but

the babyfaced sadist is the darling of the wingnuts.
