Not Guilty: A Good Way To Begin Thanksgiving Week

You might think that we’ve said all there is to say about the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse, but you’d be wrong. Not while Twitter is still out there.

First there’s the batsh*t crazy leftists like Stephen King:

kingNo Stephen, the medium is the message; that’s how we got here.

The ACLU, ever on the lookout for white supremacists in our midst:

aclu dangerousGosh, remember when the ACLU used to at least pretend to support Constitutional rights?

And even normies who still think we have a right to bear arms and protect ourselves were permitted to Tweet (for now):

   For a good overview of the entire landscape, Instapundit provides a very good compendium. A small example: 

Spit Out That Black Pill. “As Bill Whittle (bless his name) puts it, most casualties happen after we know the war is won or lost. So be careful out there, and keep your clothes and weapons where you can find them in the dark. . . . Don’t get sloppy, but fight with all you’ve got, from where you are, with everything you can. Because in the end individual freedom wins.”

Matt Taibbi: The Rittenhouse Verdict is Only Shocking if You Followed the Last Year of Terrible Reporting. “Unrest wouldn’t be surprising. How could it be otherwise? Colleagues in national media spent over a year telling the country the 18-year-old was not just guilty, but a moral monster whose acquittal would be an in-your-face affirmation of systemic white supremacy.”

And speaking of the media, disappointment over the relatively quiet overnight (exception: Portland – way to go!) is palpable: we’ve come to expect “mostly peaceful” riots following decisions the left disagrees with.

“The left in this country has used terror tactics, starting violent riots and engaging in property destruction as a matter of right when they feel they have been wronged. We all now expect them to burn down cities when they get bad news. None of that is legal in our system of government. The people who should face a jury are the ones who burned businesses, committed arson, vandalism, and lawlessness, not the people who defended their town against them when law enforcement wouldn’t.”

NOBODY’S MORE DISAPPOINTED THAN CNN AND MSNBC: Kenosha Crowd Reacts to Rittenhouse Verdict…and It’s Not What the Lying Media Told You Would Happen. “Not only is the crowd overwhelmingly cheering for Rittenhouse and his right to self-defense, but the majority of the cars driving by were honking their horns in support of the verdict. This reaction gives me hope for America. Perhaps Americans do understand why our Constitutional rights are still important and why the mob cannot be allowed to have power over the law.”

Don’t worry though, their disappointment will be short-lived: BLM has planned riots protests in Chicago tonight. And strangely, no one on the left sees the relation between police being told to stand down and/or being defunded and armed civilians protecting private property in the streets.

Facts over feelings. “Of course, the real responsibility is that of politicians and law enforcement who let armed lefty thugs rampage at will in the streets, necessitating self-defense by people who had every right to expect the government to stand between them and the thugs. This is malfeasance, and in a just world those officials would be on trial.

If you don’t want people taking guns into scenes of civil unrest, then don’t pull police out and leave citizens to fend for themselves in scenes of civil unrest.”

And of course no summary of the Rittenhouse verdict would be complete without hearing what our elite black professional sports celebrities think about it:

Why is that important? Oh right, because Rittenhouse is “white” and the “sports world” is pretty “black” – or as Joe Biden would say, “negro.”

So, finally, that’s all I have to say about the Rittenhouse verdict. Thanksgiving is right around the corner and that means “Holiday Recipe” week around here, so don’t say you weren’t warned.
