A bit more of Kyle's view (and the contrast between him and the culture warrior talking heads)
About 24 minutes into the podcast “You Are Here” on the right-wing network the Blaze on Monday night, co-host Sydney Watson told her guest, Kyle Rittenhouse, that it was “kind of impressive” that “of all the people that you shot at, you killed probably two of the worst on the planet.”
...
“Congratulations,” Watson said Monday to Rittenhouse. “Good job, you.”
Rittenhouse, 18, responded that the killings were “nothing to be congratulated about.”
“Like, if I could go back, I wish I would never have had to take somebody’s life,” he said.

...
“Well, hindsight being 20/20, probably not the best idea to go down there,” Rittenhouse said. “Can’t change that. But I defended myself and that’s what happened.”
It used to be that we got into genuine debates about whether you’re more of a conservative or a moderate. We used to debate over ideology. And now it is how far you can go down the rabbit hole of conspiracy theories. And if you’re unwilling to do it, it doesn’t matter if you’re pro-life, if you’ve never voted for a tax increase. It doesn’t matter. It’s all about going deeper and deeper into the rabbit hole, unfortunately.

I caught some of Senator Dole's funeral and noticed that Proud to Be an American was one of the songs that was performed or played (don't know which).

Guess Dole was one of those Trump insurrectionist scary people. sad

Shooting at a restaurant Thursday night.
Local liberal bird cage liner article on the shooter kept bringing up Rittenhouse because the shooter mentioned Rittenhouse in a past facebook posting. Gee, wonder what they're trying to imply?

To Lefties, Rittenhouse was a negative affair, so they'll try to tie any shootie-bangie incident to Rittenhouse to generate another negative impact.

We ("Righties") forget that negative impacts, appropriate or not, add up to form your world view. (Same for positive impacts.)

With the coming midterms looking like a possible bloodbath for them perhaps the dems now want to give the appearance they're doing something. After the midterms the charges will be forgotten.

Rittenhouse for some reason is brough up in a book on ancient Egypt where he shot two black Men.  :O

Also note she capitalizes black but not white.

Quote
    On p. 341 of THE GOOD KINGS I state that Kyle Rittenhouse shot two Black men when instead he shot two white men. That was my mistake, and I apologize. The response has been a hateful stew of ridicule and denial that America has a race problem at all.

Anyone who capitalizes "Black" but does not capitalize "white" in reference to race has zero moral authority to be lecturing anyone about racism or equality.

Agreed.  But you're forgetting one significant fact.

They don't care about truth.  The only thing they care about is the number of psychological "impacts" they make, truthful or not, logical or not.

There's yet another error - Kyle shot THREE White men, not two Black men.

One of Kyle's assailants - shot in the arm - survived.

No, no,  no.  Nobody can get away with using propaganda techniques in the US.  We're much too smart to fall for that.

That was just the repetition of facts in quotes.  As in "facts."

Propaganda can't happen here.  No way.

The guy who bought the rifle for Rittenhouse takes a plea deal:

https://www.jsonline.com/story/news/crime/2022/01/08/under-plea-deal-felonies-dropped-against-rittenhouse-gun-buyer/9133259002/

Quote
Kyle Rittenhouse's friend, who bought him an assault-style rifle when he was only 17, has agreed to plead no contest to contributing to the delinquency of a minor, a non-criminal citation, and avoid convictions on the two felonies he'd been facing.

The left is, as usual, apoplectic over this blatant display of white supremacy . . . or something.

What I strongly dislike about plea deals is someone like Dominick Black winds having to accept even a non-criminal citation when he should have simply had all charges dismissed.  But a persecutor that’s desperate for a notch in their belt uses the infinite resources of the state to make it so painful to fight for your rights and defend yourself that it’s less bad to take the plea deal than it is to win in court.

In Which I Single-handedly Shape the Media Narrative...

I read this article, and noticed they spoke of "the Kyle Rittenhouse case and other recent incidents of violence against African Americans."

https://news.stlpublicradio.org/health-science-environment/2022-01-04/a-black-gun-enthusiast-is-on-a-lonely-mission-to-stop-missouris-suicide-crisis

So I emailed a comment to them, and an hour or two later, it's been changed.

So, don't mind me. Just sitting here, quietly controlling the information you receive, to suit my agenda. [sinister laughter]

Good on you for speaking up, Perd.  You did the right thing.  However, it wasn't much of a change, being rather subtle.  And in a lot of peoples' minds after reading that, Rittenhouse will have still killed African Americans.  I think their change in the wording was deliberately designed to maintain that linkage, and yet give them an out if they are called on it again.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

No sir, I assure you what I've done is a game-changer, forever altering the way Americans will view race relations for centuries. Everyone has now seen the light on Kyle Rittenhouse, thanks to me. You're welcome.  =)

Before I even clicked on the link the question of whether or not they included the red dot which was absent during the trial went went through my head.

Quote
In a matter of about three minutes, the gun was unboxed, identified, and dumped into the shredder.  They even destroyed the Sight-Mark optic and the Magpul PMag used by Rittenhouse.

A few months after his acquittal, his spokesman said Rittenhouse wanted the gun destroyed and thrown away so no one could use it for publicity or to “celebrate” what Rittenhouse did. Schroeder, Rittenhouse’s attorneys and Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger, agreed the state would destroy the weapon.
