The utterly bizarre spectacle of the prosecution in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial destroying their own case has captivated audiences around America for more than a week. I’m no exception. I’ve particularly enjoyed the belly-laughs provided by witness after witness contradicting the prosecution’s assertions, and in so many words making the defense’s case for it. If Rittenhouse is convicted on the basis of what we’ve seen so far, there will truly be no justice in America.
Here’s how Tucker Carlson sees it. If you’d prefer to read rather than watch, a transcript of his talk is available here.
I hope and trust that Mr. Rittenhouse will be found not guilty of all charges, based on what we’ve heard and seen so far. The big question mark is what the Biden administration will do. They don’t want citizens standing up for themselves against extremist far-left progressive rioters. They may try to use federal charges against Rittenhouse to send a message that no matter what, they’ll come after us.
That would be a travesty of justice, too . . . but then, the Biden administration doesn’t exactly care about justice. It’s just advised corporations to ignore a court-ordered stay of the vaccination mandate. So much for the rule of law, eh?
