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.
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?
