Well, who could have possibly seen this coming?
In the aftermath of a just Rittenhouse verdict, which took several days to arrive at, the mainstream media and mob promptly went berserk over the weekend, undoubtedly reinforcing one another’s utterly extremist views.
However, since the media effectively gives the mob a global microphone, it is safe to say that the entity is fully guilty of aiding and abetting the mob.
For starters, consider the grossly irresponsible commentary from Mark Strassman on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
“Lots to unpack here, this country’s ongoing moment of racial reckoning, vigilantism, and self-defense claims from armed people who deputize themselves …
[Rittenhouse] drove in from Illinois armed for battle.” [Source: Fox News]
Apparently, Strassman forgot that a little thing called a lawsuit still exists in this nation, and Rittenhouse likely already has several strong cases against quite a few media personalities.
Not to mention Biden himself, who publicly blasted Rittenhouse as a “white supremacist.”
Since the president did it, apparently a bunch of other media personalities think it’s appropriate to do so as well, such as MSNBC Host Tiffany Cross.
To be extra dramatic, she was sure to add in “murderous.”
“This is not a miscarriage of justice, this is justice working as intended for white people … I’m just disgusted because I still don’t think that Rittenhouse understands that he is morally wrong if the justice system did not find him legally wrong …
It’s not just this trial, it’s other trials, but this in particular: The fact that white supremacists roam the halls of Congress freely and celebrate this little murderous white supremacist, and the fact that he gets to walk the streets freely, it lets you know these people have access to instituting laws, they represent the legislative branch of this country. What are we to make of that?” [Source: The Daily Wire]
Just keep on stirring the pot of hatred, and keep on deflecting from the “legally wrong” and “morally wrong” actions of violent rioters and cop killers.
As far as “white supremacists roaming halls of Congress freely?” Is Ms. Cross aware that the FBI has expended an astonishing number of resources in its efforts to capture participants in the Capitol Hill Breach?
Moreover, looks like criminals are able to roam the streets freely in pretty much every major Democrat city, and don’t even get Americans going on the illegal migrants roaming freely across the border and enjoying a free flight to a major American city, without even needing to produce a negative COVID-19 test.
Once Ms. Cross decides to address those issues, amongst several others, then perhaps it is possible to talk about “legally wrong,” never mind “morally wrong.”
On top of that, Mark Richards, Rittenhouse’s attorney, is presently being inundated with death threats.
“Everybody in this case, and when I say that, I mean prosecution, defense – to me it’s scary how many death threats we’ve had … You know, I was answering my phone on the way back from court in Kenosha… after the third death threat, I quit answering the phone …
I’m going through my emails, there are threatening emails too … I would love for things to change, for people to talk to one another without fighting, but, unfortunately, I don’t see it changing it any time soon.” [Source: Breitbart]
One would think that the FBI would assist in protecting Richards, but the agency is probably too busy stalking local school board meetings.
Which is precisely why a gang of 80 (!) criminals felt empowered to openly rob a Nordstrom in a chintzy area of San Francisco in broad view of everyone.
CBS San Francisco reported the rather unbelievable scene.
“Dozens of looters swarmed into the Nordstrom store in downtown Walnut Creek Saturday night, terrorizing shoppers, ripping off bag loads of merchandise and ransacking shelves before fleeing in a several vehicles waiting for them on the street.
Walnut Creek Lt. Ryan Hibbs told KPIX 5 that police began receiving calls about the looting at around 9 p.m. He said there were approximately 80 individuals who ran into the store and began looting and smashing shelves.” [Source: Breitbart]
Now if only the FBI would get the memo that BLM and Antifa are indeed “terror” organizations, not “movements.”
After all, if terrorism is based upon violence used for political gain, then how else can the following protest in downtown Chicago over the weekend be explained?
“The only solution is communist revolution! The only solution is communist revolution! The only solution is communist revolution! That’s right! We need communism. That’s what we need. We need that! We need that, sister, we need that very much!” [Source: The Blaze]
Yeah. Something suggests that the above “protest” should attract more fear than a PTA meeting.
Then again, with “leadership” like Pelosi’s, what can one expect?
Just consider her response to the decimation of a Christopher Columbus statue.
“People will do what they do.” [Source: Fox News]
Will they ever …
