Rittenhouse roundup

Both Tucker and Ace are right around the corner, but not quite all the way home yet.

Tucker Carlson explained the entire point of this show trial: The Regime wants you to know that Antifa and BLM are its unofficial but quite official paramilitaries, and that they own the streets, and that when they roll up to burn your business or invade your home, you’d best bet salute smartly and let them carry off your valuables and your wife.

If you attempt to interfere with The Regime’s unofficial but quite official paramiliatry armies, The Regime’s official-official armed enforcement squads will come battering down your door to put you in prison for the rest of your life.

I ain’t disagreeing, really; that is indeed true as far it goes. Which ain’t far enough. The point about the Left’s go-to goon squads being given carte blanche to indulge in their rioting, looting, burning, assault, and murder activities is well taken, but offers too narrow and specific a focus. There’s a much broader agenda in play here, a bigger target being drawn down on. Among several other things, this is no more nor less than a full broadside, with every 16-incher at sea as part of TF Shitlib being fired at the God-given right to self-defense via firearm—a direct, all-hands salvo directed against the 2A itself, one of The Enemy’s most fiercely hated yet elusive targets for decades.

U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- As the defense rested in the murder trial of Kyle Rittenhouse—the teenager who shot three people last year during a riot in Kenosha, Wisconsin, killing two and wounding the third—a question that hasn’t been asked by any pundit is whether it was just the defendant on trial, or was the real target of this trial the act of self-defense?

Separate the lack of wisdom on Rittenhouse’s part for even being in the middle of a riot in the first place, from the awful moments of confrontation with people he believed were intending to or physically trying to gravely injure or kill him.

Where would any other ordinary citizen be in the same situation, faced with the same set of circumstances, knowing what he or she knew at the time? This is where the Rittenhouse trial, and potential verdict, could have a direct impact on the act of lethal self-defense anywhere in the country.

The media has frequently raised hackles over self-defense related issues, especially the passage of shall-issue concealed carry statutes, and in more recent times, the adoption of so-called “Constitutional carry” laws.

If Rittenhouse is acquitted, it should reinforce the argument that armed private citizens have the right of self-defense even to the point of taking another life.

If he is found guilty, the concern will be how the rights of every other armed citizen could be subsequently jeopardized based on what would likely become known as “the Rittenhouse rule.”

Whether Kyle is acquitted as he damned well should be or not, however much or little the unalienable right of self defense is reinforced—these things won’t matter in either the short OR the long run, not one whit. Our gun-grabbin’, goosesteppin’ oppressors’ attacks on our rights and freedoms will go right on as if nothing has happened. Nothing will change. No reprieve, no pause, no slowing of their pace nor slackening of their frenzied resolve shall be seen. More from the Federalist.

The obscene part is that the charges of capital murder brought against him were entirely politically motivated to appease the very mob he and the others were defending against. But his fate now rests in the hands of a group of citizens who were also at risk from that same mob during the riots, just like Kyle.

The goal of the media provocateurs is to delegitimize this most basic right to protect our communities and ourselves in the absence of official security forces. They are perfectly fine with the mobs looting and destroying things, and even invented the shameful euphemism of “restorative justice” to describe it. Those terms are not acceptable.

They most certainly are not, yet somehow they’ve been accepted up til now. And if/when Kyle is found guilty as I expect, with no response from Real Americans more strenuous and aggressive than a shrug of the shoulders and an “ehhh, whatchagonnado?”—perhaps at the very most a truly peaceful demonstration here and there, after which the park or city square is cleaned shiny whilst a few of the protesters are cut out from the shelter of the group to facilitate being beaten savagely with bicycle chain, spiked sections of lumber, lengths of iron pipe, and various blunt, heavy, sharp, and/or pointy found-objects right straight into the nearest ER or morgue, as the cops look passively on and do nothing in the way of hindering it, as ordered—those unacceptable terms will have been formally graven in bloody granite. Onwards.

There is no official obligation to act as a member of the militia, but there is a moral one. Those unwilling to stand against lawlessness, or at least support those who do, may still have the title of citizens but are really baby possums riding on the backs of their betters.

Rather than a murder trial, Kyle should have been given the keys to the city. It is a sign of our moral and cultural decay that we have had to witness the farce perpetrated by the feckless, fauxhawk-wearing Binger. His disgraceful actions have brought shame on his office and himself.

Kyle will be vindicated since the partisan nature of the charges paired with the incompetence of Binger and crew have led them to make the defense’s case for them. It was self-defense in the face of a mob left uncontrolled by city forces.

But we as freedom-loving Americans must be equally vigilant to push back against this attack on the very right to preserve our lives and livelihoods. It is preferable for that to be done by the forces that take our taxes with the promise to do so. But the Founders foresaw that may not always be the case and provided us a right to do so ourselves in extremis.

WILL BE vindicated? Kyle was vindicated long ago, irrefutably so. He was exonerated in full by the criminal actions of his attackers that very night, crimes they themselves have lately admitted to in open court. Most of the video, pictures, and eyewitness accounts entered into evidence over these last days have been publicly available since a few days after the events occurred; there have been no new surprise developments, no game-changing revelations since.

Abundant evidence of Kyle’s good character presented in the trial, as well as the appalling and complete want of same amongst the loathsome vermin who tried to murder him, provides further support for the righteousness of this vindication, although there should be no need for any such by now. The truth remains as simple, clear, and obvious as it has been from the very start: this abominable show trial should never have taken place at all.

Kyle Rittenhouse is innocent of all charges filed against him by a politically-motivated, frighteningly unethical DA’s office. THEY are the ones who should be on trial, along with the worthless dregs of society who decided cold-bloodedly murdering a blameless teen would provide a perfect coda for the night’s lawless orgy of rioting, burning, wanton destruction of property, and all-round thuggery.

Divemedic concisely sums up.

I have watched nearly every minute of the Rittenhouse trial. With my understanding of the law, I think that this was a legitimate case of self defense. With that being said, I don’t think that the law today (especially in politically charged cases like this one) is being practiced in anything close to the manner in which it is intended.

If Rittenhouse is convicted of those killings, we can be sure that self defense in particular, and the justice system in general, are no longer operating in this nation. The best thing to do from that point forward is to run if you are ever involved in a use of force incident. The Ritttenhouse defense fund is in the millions of dollars. If that isn’t sufficient to win a case that is this clear cut, there is no hope for those of us who only have concealed carry insurance.

He ain’t wrong about that, I’m afraid. But this is really nothing new either, and so shouldn’t come as a shock to anybody. The sad, shameful truth is that we’ve been steered in this direction for a very long time, and are about to arrive at the final destination of our journey. That said, all hope should not be abandoned. There are still options available for us to take, things we can still do to fix our problem. One of Divemedic’s commenters helpfully lays ’em out for us.

It’s an either/or situation if Kyle is found guilty (the Chauvin trial proving that cops are guilty of a violent offender’s self-inflicted death) of murder for defending himself.

Either go totally silent, run away, hide, never ever ever ever react or defend yourself or your people.

Or.

Furk them all. Go for broke. Gonna take out one? Take them all out. Go on a full-blown killing spree/vendetta/bloodletting that would make even a commie blush in shame. Kill them all, God will know His own.

One skateboarder or head-kicker or pistol-armed idiot amongst a pack of hell-bound rioters and looters comes to attack you? Kill the attacker, kill the people supporting the attacker, kill the rest of the burn-look-murder group. Kill the ones on the front lines. Kill the ones in the back passing stuff forward. Especially kill the ones holding the cell phones up and who are calling the shots. Kill. Kill. Kill. Why not? What’s the worst they can do to you? Give you 20 death penalties that will take 30-40 years for the courts to work out all the appeals and issues. 30 life-sentences? Gee, past a certain point, what does it matter?

What matters is if they make self-defense illegal, then who cares. Take everyone out. Go down the local lefty enclave and pop the judges, the prosecutors, the city commissioners, the mayors, the teachers, the lawyers, pop everyone. Get the doctor who called for the vaxx. Get the nurse who wouldn’t admit a loved one because they were unvaccinated. Pop everyone who’s supported all the wrong decisions in the last 40 years. Biden bumperstickers, BOOM. Hillary stickers or Obama stickers? BOOOOM BOOOOM BOOOOM. FBI agent? BOOOOM. BATFE agent? BOOOOOM and burn with fire. DEA? BOOOM. TSA? BOOOM.

Past a certain point, what can they do to you? If they’re going to hang you for self defending, then they might as well hang you for everything else.

They don’t understand that the concept of self defense is the last thing holding the (to them) great unwashed idiot inbred flyoverists and red staters from just saying “Copulate this” and expending a lot of their personal horde of freedom seeds and flammable objects.

Screw it. Gonna kill the rule of law? Then you’d best be ready for a lot of righteous killing.

My heartfelt endorsement in response to these sentiments was immediate and enthusiastic: This is the greatest fucking comment I have ever seen. I meant it, too. Hey, as Sam Spade liked to say, they can only hang you once. That being the case, might as well be hanged for a sheep as a lamb, right?

You’re absolutely right/correct. I don’t think that the coastals have yet come to the realization that Joe Average American has been pushed to his breaking point. I’m not certain I want to be in the vanguard, but you’ll see me darned close to the front, carrying to protect myself (and my Constitution).

Skeptic

There’s an alternate strategy to the “indiscriminately shoot them all in full camera view” approach. We’re smarter that they are – let’s act like it. Pick targets and make them disappear. Quietly. Strategically. The ape that made the threats against the Rittenhouse jury, for instance – I’m sure he could be honey trapped with a white woman into a place where he just didn’t exist anymore. And so on and so forth.

SteveF

Most people are not willing to commit premeditated ambush murder.

Skeptic

Our enemies are.

hhluce

People do lots of things in war that they wouldn’t do during peacetime, and make no mistake, this is war – the first shots in a civil war. And when police protect “antifa” breaking the peace, and protect them while they commit arson and murder, the police should be regarded as the same sort of threat to a peaceful community as the “antifa”.

SteveF

I don’t disagree. But you’re going to have a hard time getting as much as 1% of the population to take a deer rifle out and start shooting at cops during a multi-way brawl or taking a pistol to a judge’s house and shooting him when he answers the door. I doubt you’d be able to muster a hundredth of a percent for either of those.

HazHap

I doubt you’d be able to muster a hundredth of a percent for either of those.

And in more normal times, this is a very, very good thing. It allows for peace, prosperity, and stability. But the enemies of civilization have been weaponizing that reluctance against normal people for decades now. So far the patience and forebearance of the average man has not been exceeded.

But as others have noted, it would not take very many people at all to change that dynamic — the effect of a couple “quiet” shooters to panic and lock down an entire metro region has already been demonstrated. And they were targeting random people, not specifically members of the ruling class.

I suspect that once a few people do get pushed that far, and just how big an effect they have is observed, that there will be widespread copycats of the tactic. And the ruling class will have no idea at all how to respond, other than doubling down on the oppression. A preference cascade could happen remarkably quickly if that point is ever reached.

And the ruling class seem determined to keep pushing to make it happen. Maybe there are some masterminds behind the scenes who want it to happen as justification for further steps. But most of the ruling class is not that smart, and is just going to blunder into going too far and then wonder, Hillary Clinton style, “What happened?”

Barry

No argument with what you state here, Haz. OTOH, consider that the pair that caused so much chaos caused that chaos primarily among the civilian population that the government would like to lockdown anyway. That pair would be hunted hard should they target the elite class. While there are lessons to be drawn from such events, those lessons must be taken with a large grain of salt when considered in a different environment. Very little resources have been devoted to such in normal times. Should a pair make war on the state the resource use will be unlimited.

HazHap

Certainly the rules of engagement would be different if the ruling class was targeted. But being the ruling class — utterly convinced they are untouchable — they would absolutely lose their minds and freak out. Even more than they already have, I mean. The over-reaction and ham-handed response would be hilariously stupid.

Competence is not something you can just turn on and off; it is a habit and a mindset that takes constant practice. Our would-be overlords have been sloppy and incompetent for a LONG time now. Even if they suddenly decide to get serious and tell their minions to actually do the work properly (to go after their enemies), the results are going to be poor. Combine that with their minions mostly being diversity hires chosen for ideology and not capability, and they are likely to blunder badly.

They could probably track down and catch someone who went on a shooting spree, given enough time. But if multiple people each did one or two things and then stopped, no repeating patterns by any individual? They might track down some of them via surveillance camera footage or electronic trails, depending on how cautious the individuals were. But the big data mining/cross checking machinery of law enforcement can’t spot patterns when there aren’t any patterns.

Lots of one-time things, all of them different. Not the same things over and over, unless a person doesn’t care if they get caught or plans to go out with an honor guard.

Aesop

Sez who?

Don’t project your own hesitancy onto others; it simply isn’t there.

And nothing proposed or suggested requires “most people“.
But even a fraction of 1% who are willing would yield dividends beyond your wildest imagination.

And the minute anything more than a dozen such folks start figuring out it’s what works, things are going to get absolutely fascinating.

1984 wasn’t supposed to be a blueprint.
The same thing could happen with Dexter.

And once it does, the party’s on.

Barry

Don’t project your own hesitancy onto others; it simply isn’t there.

OK, please provide links to the news where those “others” are doing what SteveF says there not willing to do.

Talk, talk, talk.

SteveF

Don’t project your own hesitancy onto others

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." — Daniel Webster

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” – Frank Zappa

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free." - Donald Surber
