NEWSER - On Friday, November 19  a jury acquitted 18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse of five felony charges, after he killed Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber and seriously wounded Gaige Grosskreutz during a protest over police brutality against Black Americans.

That same day, his fans celebrated online. Far-right extremists held him up as “the hero we’ve been waiting for” and called him a “saint” — a title they often give to racially motivated mass murderers and right-wing terrorists.

Rittenhouse's acquittal comes as the Department of Justice and the FBI have said the top threat facing the US comes from racially or ethnically motivated violent domestic extremists. According to experts on terrorism, history shows that moments like this, punctuated with acquittals like his, are often followed by more violent acts.

“It has never taken more than a whisper of approval to fan the flames of militant right action, and the Kenosha acquittal is a shout,” one historian said.

Meanwhile, the parents of Anthony Huber, one of the two men killed by Rittenhouse, argued the verdict brought “no justice” for Huber or the two other men shot by Rittenhouse. At the same time, some Republican lawmakers and candidates have publicly celebrated Rittenhouse's acquittal and offered him congressional internships.

Kyle is a national hero and has been nominated for a Congressional Gold Medal. What an honor. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/marjorie-taylor-greene-kyle-rittenhouse-congressional-gold-medal

Hear hear, Brian. Once again you lay it out straight. If folks could shake themselves out of the hypnotic trance the CIA-controlled media puts them into we could all live in peace and harmony, respectful of each others' cultures and space. Everything wrong with the world today is fixable with nothing more than knowledge and truth. Sure, there is some of each dispensed daily in the mass media, they have to mix some valid information in with the lies in order to plausibly argue their own validity. But the truth they dispense only relates to matters insignificant to their controller's cause, which is to promote struggle and strife among the masses so they are more easily manageable.

More lies, deceit and fraud by the same global media controlled by the 6 corporations. Most people thought he shot Black people. I saw interviews where black people were stunned to find out he shot 3 white people! The media is at 20% approval for a reason, they have burned to many bridges with people with their endless propaganda. The do it on everything as the people that own and control media have an agenda just like they do in the global genocide we are living through now. What is countering all their lies is the fact that people are reporting the truth now instead of these liars and propagandists which are nothing more than flipped reality. The legacy media is so disgusting with its disinformation and lies you can just about reverse, flip, take the opposite to get the truth. It really is disgusting the harm these media companies have done to the world. Time to break up every single media outline. No single person or corporation should be allowed to own more than 10% of shares in any single radio station, tv station, print or internet media outlet. We need to go back to what the media was suppose to do. I remember growing up and enjoying Sunday shows mid morning where they would treat you with intelligence, the reporters would stay neutral and have people representing various positions where you the viewer or reader were given the respect to use critical thinking. Those days are long gone since the global monopoly and in your face propaganda on everything. It is why people are turning to each other. I have produced videos that have gone viral and received tens to hundreds of millions exposing the truth while CNN lays off people and cannot even get 1 million to watch their propaganda ALL WEEK! We do not have real news or media anymore that unbiased it is nothing but lies, deception and fraud to push their propaganda of division and the break down of morals and values to create the global Authoritarianism attempted Coup d'état of Christian moral values, republics and democracies. These are evil bastards those who run these criminal enterprises. BREAK THEM UP and lets go back to independent news instead of global feeds of propaganda that everybody runs with no checking the story. Some of us are old enough to see the difference in the regurgitated propaganda blasting today with the same headlines and same propaganda message compared to many years ago where you would get independent news with balanced point of view that respected the person to counter all sides of the position...today that is long gone its always lies, deceit and fraud.

You damn well better give a shit. Go to your guns to solve your problems? They cause more problems than they solve as witnessed every day in the news. When I was growing up in the mid west there were LOTS of guns in this country. You never heard of road rage (maybe a one finger salute), indiscriminate mass shootings and drive byes. A lot of people grab a gun at the slightest provocation these day. So yes, you better give a shit. And no, I'm not making up my military experience. You serve? Doubt it. I got off the couch. Have you?

GB try to keep your arguments straight. You initial comment was that KR was shot at. Now guns were only being brandished about. I am going to cut right to the chase. And yes, you are a right wing nutjob but typically like so many of you, you're afraid to fully embrace your insanity. Look around the world. Everyday the case is being made for authoritarian and despotic regimes. And fools like you who scream for freedom and this other fool on this site now crying about "the matrix", really are seeking just that. America had a semblance of a democracy which it is fast on the way to completely losing. So while you cry now for freedom, you will be screaming for it when authoritarian rule takes over. But you all are so blinded by your faux-rage, prejudice and deep insecurities as you see that gene of colour has the very propensity to, over time, cause the disappearance of one colour and one colour alone-white. So in truth, your fear is well founded.KR situation and 2nd Amendment and CRT and white supremacy are just periphiral to the real issue. The fear which drove the initial American experiment has only evolved and manifested itself in all the misery and suffering now seen daily in the US. So while you argue over what constitutes a weapon of war or if the matrix is going to get you, your entire vision of the world is changing. The really sad part of this is that you "conservatives" on this site are so enmeshed in your futile struggle fighting ill-perceived change, that you do not see the earth shattering, mind blowing change that is really coming. Ignorance is bliss though.

Harley, nobody gives a shit to your question but it’s obvious you’re someone who wouldn’t get off your ass to defend someone or your community. Probably figure your duty to humanity ended with your tour of military duty … which you probably lied about anyway.

Again.....why did this kid show up from out of town with a gun? To "protect and defend" private property? Nobody asked him to. You carry a gun to a riot and expect....what?

Wrong again Ajd. But don't let facts get in the way of your nihilist ideology. His assailants were brandishing guns and threatening him directly. Only people of European descent with high moral principles are, in your mind, 'pussies' if they carry a weapon. The world is already deep into WW3. It is not a typical war so I agree that guns will be of little use, except in circumstances like the one just tried. The real enemy is the state and the supranational organizations that covertly and overtly direct each and every one. Those who support the authoritarian control matrix are merely useful tools for the time being. If the supranational matrix of control succeeds in medically enslaving mankind the first to be sacrificed will be the previously useful tools, those who will expect succor but receive none. The plan isn't novel or new. Just the same old playbook with new tools - divide the populace in every way imaginable such as race, religion, party, culture, etc. and keep them fighting while the control matrix is completed. Wake up before it's too late. And stop calling me 'right wing'. I'm not in that fight. I'm about humanity, liberty, freedom, morality, and cultural preservation in the face of an onslaught of nihilistic insanity.

Oh ya, you really are choosing to die on that hill? Any weapon that can kill 10 people in less than 10 seconds is a weapon of war. You people are truly mired in unmitigated ignorance. All you bring to this conversation is to assist me in improving my typing skills. Idiots!!

GB, true to your myopic and truly demented worldview, you clearly did not read, and if you did, could not understand, what I wrote. I never questioned the verdict. Under that state's laws there was no other verdict to be reached, especially coupled with the judicial bias demonstrated and the country's generally white-slanted legal bias(constantly demonstrated). So read and try to comprehend before you spout your right wing diatribes. Another error on your part--noone shot at him. NOONE! He reacted I guess just as any "pussy with a gun" would---fear of seeing someone else with a gun means that he had to unleash his fragile and extremely misplaced "manhood", because in right wing white america, guns are so much the means by which so many little and deficient men try to prove they are not, to each other and people like you GB. This is America!!

Ajd you just proved to everyone that you are a idiot. (when the kid brandished a WEAPON of war.) The AR15 is just a semi automatic rifle like the Cooey i had as a kid. In your small mind i guess anyone who drives a Jeep is drive a army vehicle (vehicle of war)

Hey Ajd, after hearing the evidence, a jury and judge, under enormous pressure from marxists like you in the media and elsewhere, found the guy innocent. He went to the BLM riot to do his part in protecting what little remains of America from the marxist hordes pillaging the country in summer 2020 and he only shot after being shot at himself or receiving the hollow end of his assailants' weapons. You and your ilk who want to turn the world into a slave state of automatons are at war with humanity. And you will lose.

I will always remember the words of the hero in a fairly recent movie when he described the diminuative self-entitled villain who based his entire existance on his guns-- " a pussy with a gun"!! All of you right wing nutjobs fit into that category. And KR definitely confirmed his membership in that very large american club when he testified. Blubbering and wimpering like the true juvenile deliquent he obviously is, and I am sure disappointing some of the more rabid white supremacists who support his right as a 17 year old kid to brandish a weapon of war. As americans continue to wage war on each other, literally self-destructing as a country right before our eyes, idiots like mhogan and gbutler sing praises to the freedom to murder and maim, while getting totally lost in the trees and completely missing the forest. This is not some made-up all-threatening theory that frightens white people's fragile sensibilities, not some attempt to take away this all vaunted "freedom" that so many white nationalists want to cling to. No, it is the total and complete disintegration of a country as we sit at our dinner tables and watch. America is lost, despite the best efforts of the few righteous men and women remaining. All of you conservative, right wing bigots are throwing out the baby with the bathwater when you celebrate the KR result, because I guarantee you that, in America, there are far too many who rightfully and correctly carry the label "pussy with a gun". But hey, the Second Amendment and the NRA are truly and correctly the essence of America. And the ultimate means of its self destruction.

No Harley a better question is why are the stupid people attacking others on the street and it was proven in court the stupid people attacked Kyle. If you can not figure out why people carry guns you are to stupid to understand even if someone took the time to try to explain it to you.

Nope. Not painting anybody of particular flavor. Just wondering what he was doing there with a gun. The car lot owner said he never asked anyone to "protect" his property. This kid showed up with a gun to a riot. What was his intent? Negotiate??? With a gun?? If some one attacked me and I had a gun you're damn right I'd shoot um. But why did he bring a gun in the first place if he didn't intend to use it??????????????????

Ever hear of 2A Harley? Had you watched his trial, you would understand he was a good kid trying to protect the community from s bunch of criminal rioters. So like the Left to try to paint the victim as the perpetrator if he happens to be Conservative. Luckily, a jury of 12 proper-minded people decided his fate correctly. You’ll probably try to paint them as biased Rightwingers.

There's a reason the left doesn't roll out to rural areas with their bullshit because the American Patriots are well armed as most are prior military or have been trained by fathers, grandfathers to drop targets at 200 yds. Rittenhouse should drop off the radar before the cortupt DOJ sends the woke FBI to arrest him on some trumped up charge. Show me the man and I'll show you the crime...

This is absolute nonsense. It is the marxists in North America who are calling for violence and in fact have already cheered the killing 7 and injury of 50 as one of their own drove a car into marching band at a Christmas parade. This is the kind of culture you are promoting with your leftist agenda, NRP. Shame on you.

Got your Left/Right mixed up. Nothing speaks LEFTIST more than MSNBC so can you explain this headline: “ MSNBC host calls Kyle Rittenhouse ‘Little Murderous White Supremacist’ following acquittal”. Guess this shows your buas — lol
