That’s What Happens When Society Collapses

There could be a verdict in the Rittenhouse trial as early as today. Closing arguments (and antics, in the case of the prosecutor, see picture below) were made yesterday.

Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger argued that Rittenhouse provoked the attack, thereby forfeiting his right to self-defense.

Rittenhouse instigated the first shooting by pointing his weapon at people, and caused the subsequent encounters by creating an “active shooter” situation in which protesters felt an urgency to disarm him.

While making that claim Binger demonstrated by picking up Kyle’s rifle and aiming it at the spectator section of the courtroom, with his finger on the trigger. One would think that every moron in America would know by now that’s a violation of the most basic rule of gun safety. If they didn’t know before they certainly should following the coverage of last month’s on set shooting by Alec Baldwin.

Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger holds Kyle Rittenhouse's gunDemocrats don’t know anything about gun safety and don’t do learning. Exhibit 1

By his own argument people in the courtroom would have been justified in trying to take him down.

Jury deliberation begins this morning. The governor has called out 500 National Guard to be on hand in the event the verdict drives the roving horde to begin their Christmas shopping ahead of black Friday. I’m unclear what the pretext for this riot will be. The shooter is white, the 3 people who were shot, including the 2 dead men, were white. There was no police involvement to blame. How then will the verdict, any verdict, in this case result in the allegation of ‘systemic racism and police brutality’ which is all that’s necessary these days to provide sanctioned rioting and looting? Your guess is as good as mine, but mark my words: there will be riots if BLM has anything to say about it.


Because that’s what happens when society collapses.
