Indy can't be happy about it.

Maybe she has her eye on a GOP bid for president.

    That's 100%, pure, simple truth.

    Are you saying that truth belongs to the GOP?


  2. by HatetheSwamp on November 20, 2021 10:15 am

    Having seen the truth unveiled in the trial, I have to wonder, Donna, which part of thid do you think is even close to being in error?

    Does the Rittenhouse verdict mean that anyone can buy an AR-15, open-carry in a high crime area and legally splatter the brains of anyone who lays a finger on them?

    With no evidence, MSM & antifa-loving politicians immediately labeled Rittenhouse a white supremacist terrorist. It’s obvious now that he was just a foolish kid who felt he needed to protect people & the community from rioters & arsonists because the government failed to do so.

    This is po, ain't? You can't fool me!!!!!

    Forget you non sequitur rant, po. What part of that tweet is even close to being in error?


  5. by Donna on November 20, 2021 10:52 am
    That was Tulsi who tweeted that, not my wife.


  6. by HatetheSwamp on November 20, 2021 11:00 am

    I know who tweeted. I'm saying that you're posting in the style of po.

    Now! What in the tweet is untrue!!!!?


  7. by Donna on November 20, 2021 11:11 am
    You don't get to demand an answer to your question until you answer my question first.

    Btw, thanks for the compliment, but I'm not nearly as good a writer as my wife. She lost interest in debating politics here and on Facebook at least for the past month or so. And we hardly ever watch political shows anymore. A lot of that has to do with us moving to Arizona. We have a lot going on. In fact she was in the garage measuring things when I posted that.

    But since you asked me first if I think that "truth" belongs to the GOP, I'll answer that by saying "no". "Truth" doesn't belong to anyone. Specific claims people make can be true or false, though.

    I can't get into Kyle Rittenhouse's head anymore than Tulsi Gabbard can, but unlike her, I'm not going to proclaim I know. I think he's probably a White supremacist, though. People who aren't White supremacists usually don't pose for photos making the White supremacist hand sign. Whether or not he is, though, had nothing to do with the verdict.

    My fear is that this verdict will usher in armed citizen patrols.

    No.

    I characterized your posts as being po-ish because, while none of us achieve objectivity, you, normally, are as close to is as anyone here and po is furthest from it by an, effin, country mile.

    "No"? Why not? That's exactly what KR did.

    Tulsi gabbard is continuing with her policy of being an ill-informed populist. No politician whose name you might recognize or any reporter on MSM has called Kyle Rittenhouse a white supremacist. That is a straw man claim made up by the MAGA and Fox News crowd.

    A special note to the ill-informed: Joe Biden didn't either. Even Steve Doocy is now saying that Joe Biden "suggested" that Kyle Rittenhouse is a white supremacist. "Suggested" is the word you use when you want artribute a quote to somebody that they never said.


  14. by Donna on November 20, 2021 12:38 pm
    Curt - In the video Biden posted along with his tweet about White supremacists (the one you posted on the Unofficial official KR thread,) KR is shown as an example of a White supremacist.

    "Curt - In the video Biden posted along with his tweet about White supremacists (the one you posted on the Unofficial official KR thread,) KR is shown as an example of a White supremacist." --Donna

    Biden didn't call Rittenhouse a white supremacist. Watch the video. It makes several points.

    The voice over in the video is Chris Wallace asking Trump a question during the presidential debates: "are you willing, tonight, to condemn white supremacists and militia groups and to say that they need to stand down and not add to the violence in a number of these cities as we saw in Kenosha and as we've seen in Portland?" An image of an AR-15 toting Rittenhouse is shown while the word "Kenosha" is being said.

    Rittenhouse is an example of somebody who acted as if he were part of a militia and who certainly added to the violence in Kenosha. Supposedly Qanon lawyer Lin Wood and others are threatening to sue Biden for slandering Rittenhouse. I promise you that they will get laughed out of court if it even makes it to court.

    Ah - I missed the "militia groups" part.

    My bad.

    10 heinous lies about Kyle Rittenhouse debunked

    "7. Rittenhouse is a “white supremacist,” as then-candidate Joe Biden labeled him in a tweet showing the teenager’s photograph. When White House press secretary Jen Psaki was asked to explain why recently, she slyly slimed Rittenhouse again, without naming him, as a “vigilante.”

    In one story, the Intercept used the term “white supremacist” 16 times. The accusation has become holy writ, but there is zero evidence. The FBI scoured Kyle’s phone and found nothing about white supremacy or militias, the court heard. All they saw were pro-police, “Blue Lives Matter” posts from a kid who had been a police and fire department cadet, wanted to be a police officer or paramedic and once sat near the front of a Trump rally. That was enough for the media to brand him a white supremacist.


    8. He “flashed white power signs” with Proud Boys. After spending three months in jail, Kyle was freed on $2 million bail two days after his 18th birthday last year, and went to a bar for a beer, with his mother and other adults, which is legal in Wisconsin. He posed for selfies with strangers at the bar, who the media say are Proud Boys, and was pictured making the OK sign with his thumb and forefinger. The false claim that this is a white supremacist sign comes from a 2017 hoax on the website 4chan, to punk liberals, who keep falling for it. Biden uses the gesture frequently. It was unwise to pose for the photo, but it does not mean Kyle is associated with white supremacists."

    So much for Swampcult Blue MAGA hate-myths.

    Kyle Rittenhouse got away with murdering two people regardless of whether or not he's a White supremacist.


  19. by Curt_Anderson on November 20, 2021 6:13 pm
    Thank you for the unwitting support, HtS!

    "Joe Biden labeled [Rittenhouse] in a tweet showing the teenager’s photograph..." --HtS

    No, Biden didn't. See my #15 post above.

    ...[Jen Psaki] slyly slimed Rittenhouse again, without naming him, as a “vigilante..." --HtS

    If the shoe fits... What do you call somebody armed with a rifle who self-appoints themselves to guard property and undertake law enforcement without any legal authority? That's practically the dictionary definition of vigalante.

    "In one story, the Intercept used the term “white supremacist” 16 times." --HtS

    First off, The Intercept is definitely not a member of the Main Stream Media. They take pains to tell readers they are the alternative to the MSM. Secondly, the "story" you refer to was an opinion piece by one their contributing columnists, Natasha Lennard.


  20. by HatetheSwamp on November 21, 2021 4:15 am

    What I think even YOU won't deny, Curt, is the fact that Kyle Rittenhouse is associated with white supremacy at all can be traced to the flatulent fool on the campaign trail.

    Interestingly, to me anyway, in my free time as a geezer, I consume a lot of popular fiction. One of my favorite genres is what I think of as "vigilante fiction," though there's less of it around now than there was a decade ago. I loved the SPENSER novels of the late Robert B. Parker and Lee Child's REACHER novels.

    I love a kind hearted, principled, honorable, fighter for truth and justice and, based on the enduring popularity of those two characters after the death/retirement of the creators, many, many people do.

    Oh, I'd also put Vince Flynn's MITCH RAPP in the vigilante category. Those novels also have been continued after Flynn's death.

    So, if you want to call Kyle Rittenhouse a vigilante, you're putting him in good company.

    But, I don't think ot fits.

    Still, if you're right, you probably created a legend for Rittenhouse and made him into a hero.
