Rittenhouse Trial Brings Out the Crazy on the Progressive Left

Rittenhouse Trial Brings Out the Crazy on the Progressive Left

“The good news for Kyle Rittenhouse is that he’s not on trial for being an idiot”

The Kyle Rittenhouse trial is making some people on the left very angry and others just plain bonkers. It has been baffling watching some of the reactions from liberals in media and politics.

It’s been a festival of hot takes.

Over at CNN, legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin, who was suspended from the network earlier this year for lewd behavior on a Zoom call, had a predictably smug take on the proceedings.

The Hill reports:

CNN’s Toobin: ‘Good news’ for Rittenhouse is he’s ‘not on trial for being an idiot’

CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said Kyle Rittenhouse, the teen standing trial for multiple felonies following a shooting in Kenosha, Wis., last year, is fortunate it is not crime in America to “be an idiot.”

“What kind of idiot 17-year-old gets a giant gun and goes to a riot? He has no license, he has no training, he thinks he’s going to scrub graffiti off with his AR-15? I mean, the stupidity of this. What could possibly go wrong? Well a lot went wrong,” Toobin said Wednesday during CNN’s coverage of the Rittenhouse murder trial, which is taking place this week. “The good news for Kyle Rittenhouse is that he’s not on trial for being an idiot, he’s on trial for homicide.”

Here’s the video:

Over at MSNBC, Joy Reid used the case as proof for why we need Critical Race Theory in America.

NewsBusters reports:

Ghoulish Joy, Guest Dismiss Rittenhouse Tears, Call Him ‘White Privilege on Steroids’

MSNBC’s The ReidOut host Joy Reid could barely contain her hatred on Wednesday for Illinois teen Kyle Rittenhouse, complaining his Kenosha, Wisconsin murder trial was proof of “why critical race theory exists” and it’s needed in America. She also denounced him as the new George Zimmerman “using…cop speak” and currying favor with a nearly all-white jury by crying when the real “names” to honor are those he shot.

Not to be outdone, MSNBC legal analyst Paul Butler griped that he gave “the greatest performance of [his] life” in tandem with a biased judge to create a trial that’s “white privilege on steroids.”

See below:

Another CNN legal analyst claims that Rittenhouse has benefited from sympathetic media:

Hakeem Jeffries, a Democrat who represents New York’s 8th congressional district and claims to be for criminal justice reform, has already decided the outcome of the trial and pronounced sentence:

And that’s just a sample. If Rittenhouse is found not guilty, it will inspire a whole new level of crazy.

Toobin a bit of advice. It’s better to keep your pie hole closed and appear a moron than open it and remove all doubt.

    To be fair, he was making the point that KR is innocent, in a round about way that his pinko lefty audience would be more likely to accept. I don’t like Toobin, but he’s not completely out of touch with reality, which is more than one can say for a lot of left-wing media types.

      Good one Dennis–“not completely out of TOUCH with reality”

      Colonel Travis in reply to Dennis. | November 11, 2021 at 6:06 pm

      He’s touched reality a little too closely for my comfort.

      Observer in reply to Dennis. | November 12, 2021 at 9:48 am

      Still hypocritical for Toobin, a guy who was jerking off in front of a video camera on a zoom call with media colleagues, to call somebody else “an idiot.” Toobin, a married guy who was banging another colleague’s daughter, and tried to force the woman into an abortion (even though she’s a lawyer herself and certainly knew her rights) after he knocked her up.

      If every “idiot” got what they deserved, Toobin would have been fired, sued into bankruptcy, and mocked and humiliated for rest of his pathetic life. Toobin is the lucky one who should be grateful that not every “idiot” gets what they deserve.

    Where is Tobin’s right hand in the first picture?

If being an idiot were a crime Toobin would be on the gallows.

“CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said Kyle Rittenhouse, the teen standing trial for multiple felonies following a shooting in Kenosha, Wis., last year, is fortunate it is not crime in America to “be an idiot.”

Says the idiot who non-consensually broadcast himself wanking.
Oh wait, that is a crime.

It’s a good thing Jeffrey Toobin doesn’t work with children.

“Lock up Kyle Rittenhouse and throw away the key.”

“Dear Representative Jeffries:
We know you hate our right of armed self-defense.
Especially against your leftist brownshirt thugs.
Fuck you.

    Judging from the level of Jeffries’ intelligence as displayed in his tweets, he’ll be the gift that keeps on giving to the GOP.

    20keto20 in reply to JHogan. | November 11, 2021 at 4:43 pm

    That’s Nazi Nanzi’s plan. She gets to choose her successor obviously. Guess that power trip lives permanently in her head. She is so jealous of Trump and the fact that he brought the best economy EVER to the country, the lowest unemployment for EVERY demographic, all while facing sham accusations and show trials. She also thinks she runs the GOP since she picked who SHE wanted (she calls them Republicans–we call them traitors) for her beloved J6 committee. She had to do that though.. Had Jordan, Biggs, Gohmert, and Co. been on the committee, they would have put her in front of the committee to testify about her involvement in the sham (after all, SHE was in charge of the Capitol PoPo and dollars to doughnuts, she gave the order to LET THEM ALL IN! No wonder she’s affectionately known as the WICKED WITCH OF THE WEST!!

    Racist A-Hole.
    Where I live many blacks are sick of these animals.
    So live your dream hakeem, it’s all about to crumble down.

We need to recognize that the main stream media isn’t engaged in reporting news nor helping the public understand issues. They are a toxic and destruction force tearing the country apart. Rush Limbaugh expressed it best:

“The more time I spend covering politics, the more I’m convinced that a significant chunk of grassroots political activists aren’t really arguing about politics at all. These folks are actually grappling with personal psychological issues and projecting it onto the world of politics.”

    The Left has said so many outrageous things in the last few years, they have to keep upping the the crazy to outcrazy the the other crazy things the other crazies have said

      OnePingOnly in reply to murkyv. | November 11, 2021 at 6:34 pm

      I actually comprehended all that reading at normal speed and did not have to read it again more slowly. Kudos.

    Dathurtz in reply to ruralguy. | November 11, 2021 at 4:27 pm

    We need to remember that they aren’t “news” is any journalistic sense, but rather corporate propaganda.

These people are beyond insane. They look at Rittenhouse and see Trump. The actual proceedings and a fair trial, who cares?

Assuming he is acquitted, he’s going to make the Covington kid look like a pauper.

fortunate it is not crime in America to “be an idiot.”
This distinction belongs 100% to the IDIOT who couldn’t resist playing with himself on national TV. Quite honestly, Kyle cannot even come close to this special kind of stupidity!!

proof of “why critical race theory exists” and it’s needed in America
After weeks of telling viewers that CRT only existed in College Law classes and doesn’t exist in main stream America much less in public schools, it would appear that Joyless has outed herself! She will not “achieve” the “rock solid” position that Mr. Twohands did but she is still runner-up for the stupidity award.

Lock up Kyle Rittenhouse and throw away the key.

This seems to be the Democrats modus operandi when they disagree with the political views of others. They don’t care about the Constitution unless it fits their agenda. They don’t care about the American people except when it comes to paying taxes so they can spend our money, our children’s money, and now they are already into our grandchildren’s money. Pontificating seems to be a trait of all 3 of these special idiots. I will deal with them now on Earth. Fortunately for me, I will go to Heaven after I die and won’t have to worry about ever seeing these 3 and their cronies again. Enjoy Hades guys, you’ve earned it!

    henrybowman in reply to 20keto20. | November 11, 2021 at 6:31 pm

    Well, it wasn’t national TV… it was a multi-Democrat Zoom call. But still.

    Vince Vonheeder in reply to 20keto20. | November 11, 2021 at 7:41 pm

    One way to look at “…Joy Reid ends her Rittenhouse segment by reading off “the names of the victims” because these are the people that people ought to remember…”

    Did anyone tell Joyless that the three rioters/looters/arsonists (not victims) were all white boys?

    sdharms in reply to 20keto20. | November 12, 2021 at 5:36 am

    the fact that a congressperson said “lock him up throw away the key” should be horrifying to his constituents. It amazes me that these people can not even PRETEND to be … statesmen (too high a bar even for the best)/ But he couldnt even mouth the words he is sworn to defend.

“CNN’s Toobin: ‘Good news’ for Rittenhouse is he’s ‘not on trial for being an idiot’”

Says some shyster who was seen beating off on a zoom call!?! You can’t make this up.

Black talking heads lecturing their bias challenged audience to find guilt without trial is a fascinatedly perfect remedy for all the black on black murder, rape, assaults, drug dealing, car jacking, child support and alimony crimes.

    Rand in reply to NDA. | November 11, 2021 at 5:49 pm

    I agree entirely with your point you are making, that presumption of innocence and due process benefit everybody, not least of all black criminal defendants. When discussing this with left-wing idiots, it always amazed me how un-self aware they were about claiming to be criminal justice reformers and yet behaving like an angry ignorant lynch-mob when there was a defendant they hated.

      Ironclaw in reply to Rand. | November 11, 2021 at 6:41 pm

      Why does it amaze you? It’s not like these people are smart.

      NDA in reply to Rand. | November 11, 2021 at 8:16 pm

      Ignorance is bliss and color blind…..the black canonization of a career drug using criminal, aka, george floyd is perfect example of the black community race baiting dysfunction.
      floyd is an individual snapshot of everything that is wrong and got worse in the black community.

“What kind of idiot 17-year-old gets a giant gun and goes to a riot? He has no license, he has no training, he thinks he’s going to scrub graffiti off with his AR-15?”

What is this even supposed to mean? Like it’s even possible for me to get a “license” for a firearm in Texas. And what the f*** is a “giant gun?” Is the .416 Rigby that I killed my elephant with a “giant gun.” Or do I need to go whaling?

    And- no license required to own one of those. Totally unregulated. Like muzzle loading cannon or Gatling Guns.

    Well you can have your rabbit gun, for hunting rabbits. Then you can have your deer gun, for hunting deer. And then you can have Toobin suggest that Kyle had a ‘giant gun’, presumably to hunt giants. Right?

    My uncle spent a lifetime as a wildcatter gunsmith, specializing in big game rifles.

    Biggest one of his I ever shot was a .585, and that was enough

    He has several custom rifles and custom ammo bearing his name

    Up to and including the .600. 620 and .700 Nitro Express

    No way I could shoot one, and those guys empty the magazine when shooting a charging bull or cape buffalo

At least it didn’t break my shoulder. But then, I’m not stupid enough to pull the trigger while leaning against a tree.

What’s kind of funny about Toobin’s comments is that, in substance, they are similar to what Andrew Branca had to say about it. You can see his legal analysis on Law of Self Defense.com. Andrew pointed out that he does not endorse Kyle’s judgment, and in fact, found his decisions rather risky and imprudent, but that this is not a crime, and was only commenting about the legally pertinent aspects of the case. Toobin did much the same, although in as snarky and negative a way as he possibly could. But at least, even this biased tool has to admit, in his roundabout way, the legal case for the prosecution is weak as hell.

They decry that Kyle had no training. Maybe that is so. But did you see the way he handled himself in this life threatening situation? I bet that many well trained cops or soldiers placed in that position would have done a crazy mag-dump in every direction, killing innocent bystanders …… er …… I mean innocent rioters. Kyle carefully and purposefully placed his shots and kept himself in control, even though he was under attack by a vicious angry mob, his life was at stake, and he was, no doubt, in a state of mortal terror.

    A Thinker in reply to Rand. | November 11, 2021 at 6:29 pm

    It is impossible to challenge his shoot/no shoot decisions. Every person who backed off, didn’t get shot. With JR, AH, and GG, he didn’t miss. I do wonder why they can’t find “jump kick guy.” Maybe Kyle didn’t miss?

      henrybowman in reply to A Thinker. | November 11, 2021 at 6:34 pm

      He’s cooling his heels down at the local FBI HQ.
      Not in a cell, he has a desk there.

      sdharms in reply to A Thinker. | November 12, 2021 at 5:30 am

      If the prosecution or police didnt find “jump kick guy” it is because they didnt look. I suspect they found him. And he was a convicted felon, from another state, maybe on parole, maybe has been locked up in another state since the riot. Or went home and committed a crime so heinous the prosecutors could not use him.

    Russ from Winterset in reply to Rand. | November 11, 2021 at 7:45 pm

    Out of 8 shots, 6 of them hit people attacking him. No innocent bystanders hit. Nobody who withdrew from attacking him was hit. Several people had the muzzle of his gun pointed their way, but those all happened after the first attack upon him.

    Kid’s a wizard.

Kyle Derangement Syndrome is hatched. KDS will strike the oversocialized democrats nationwide. It will be worse than Covid 19.

[email protected] giant gun. I’m pretty sure an AR-15 is essentially a carbine and the .223 round is one of the smallest calibers available. It’s very lethal because of speed of travel but to call it “giant” shows complete idiocy.

Nah, Trump beat this trial by about 5 years.

Tobin should be in jail the freaking pervert
How disgusting

Special to Jeffrey Toobin:

WHAT KIND OF IDIOT ATTACKS AN INNOCENT PERSON OPENLY CARRYING A FIREARM.

For that matter, what kind of sfbrains morons wander about pointlessly in the dark of night perpetrating vandalism, looting, arson, and assault. That is not any kind of peaceably assembling to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

And finally, is anyone in the fakenews media going to investigate the obvious instigation and complicity of the feds in these riots, for which multifarious data points were provided in this trial.

    WHAT KIND OF IDIOT ATTACKS AN INNOCENT PERSON OPENLY CARRYING A FIREARM.

    exactly–rittenhouse is nothing more(or less)than a well-intentioned young citizen who ventured to kenosha at the request of some friends–to help out with security if things got out of hand, to be of assistance to locals(fellow citizens) if they needed medical aid/help, in other words, to be there if he was needed

    that he was armed was prudent given the nature of all these “mostly peaceful” demonstrations that had occurred around the country–he was certainly aware of the potential for things to get ugly and wanted to protect himself if they did–as it turns out, he was fortunate indeed to have the means to do so

    as you so clearly asked, what sort of idiot/bully/thug attacks an ARMED citizen? the usual thug/blm/antifa mo is to attack the weak, the helpless–those incapable of retaliating/fighting back–as we say around here, “those fools done phucked with the wrong cowboy. “

Fortunately (for Kyle) or unfortunately, Kyle is lucky that all three attackers are White. While crap all over themselves on CNN, nobody is going to riot because somebody got acquitted in killing two White dudes, and injuring another… So, the jury can review the case (or absence thereof) on the merits; not on whether I need to go into hiding if I vote not guilty

    guyjones in reply to virshu. | November 11, 2021 at 9:09 pm

    I wouldn’t be so sure about predicting an absence of rioting. I agree with you that the absence of a racial element to the Rittenhouse trial takes away some of the Dhimmi-crats’ motivation to engage in their usual and perpetual brand of dishonest racial incitement, agitation and flame-fanning, but, I predict that if Mr. Rittenhouse is acquitted, the “Anti-fa” brownshirts will use it as an excuse to do what they always do — destroy property, attack people and cause civic unrest.

Rittenhouse had as much right to be on the scene as any of the Dhimmi-crats’ goose-stepping thugs, brownshirts and rioters who were destroying property and attacking innocents. And, he certainly had a right to not be attacked by multiple assailants. Interesting how the media idiots don’t possess the honesty and the moral clarity to criticize their brethren who foolishly attacked an innocent person and paid for their stupidity. Finally, casting the assailants in this incident as alleged victims, and, venerating them, is utterly despicable, but, that’s par for the course where the Leftist media lemmings/propagandists are concerned.

Jeffery rubbin’ in Zoom.

‘Left Winger’ Bill Ackman Says Kyle Rittenhouse Is “A Patriot Who Acted In Self-Defense” after watching Kyle testimony for 3 hrs.

When you think about it…..all these people are, are gangsters extorting money.

There really will be a civil war, and it will be fought in the streets very soon.

Funny. All these black people commenting. They dont have a dog in this fight.

“What kind of idiot gets a giant gun and goes to a riot?”

Now give us an opinion on this idiot, Mr Fappin’.

Dixon bragged on Facebook about confronting James Fields with an AR-15 rifle, moments before Fields drove his car into a crowd of protesters at the Charlottesville, Virginia protests (and in doing so, perhaps pushing Fields’s emotions past the point of reason). During Fields’s trial, though, Dixon changed his story, claiming it was not Fields’s car he approached with his weapon, but another one.

https://www.jamesgmartin.center/2019/07/unc-chapel-hill-a-sanctuary-campus-for-terroristic-radicals-on-the-taxpayers-dime/

An AR-15 is not a concealed carry gun. How did he get it into the area without the cooperation of one or more of the law enforcement agencies whose connivance in ensuring that the Antifa mob would be allowed to assault the protesters who had a permit?

When you read the lynch mob treatment in the legacy media which created its own narrative and never was interested in the facts and evidence, and the collapse of the state’s case, what we have seen is a show trial akin to the trials of dissidents in the former USSR, where the Party narrative always ran roughshod over the facts
