In a particular long-weekend version of the NewsBusters Podcast, we glance again to reply the query: How energetically did MSNBC smear Kyle Rittenhouse as a white supremacist, white nationalist, or racist? Fairly a bit. Pleasure Reid led a pack of smack talkers about Kyle being slightly racist coward with an AR-15 menacing a violent neighborhood.
We return a month to October 27 for examples, but it surely was particularly thick on the night time after he was acquitted on November 19. Reid mentioned “Like if I am strolling round and I am a white nationalist, you understand, coward little child with an AR-15 and I see somebody drive by with a Black Lives Matter bumper sticker and I really feel threatened, I can open fireplace. If I am going by a youth group standing outdoors an area goal and their chanting Black Lives Matter and I really feel threatened, I can open fireplace.”
On the identical night time, Rachel Maddow mourned “the knock-on impact of Republicans and much proper teams together with white supremacist teams, Nazis, militia teams, holding up Kyle Rittenhouse as not only a one that was acquitted of murdering two folks and capturing a 3rd, they`ve made him a hero on the correct for admittedly killing these folks and getting away with it, which raises questions concerning the security of public protest sooner or later.”
The rioting, — oops, “public protest” — would have been protected that night time with out Rittenhouse?
