HOT TAKES: Leftists Have a Collective Mental Breakdown Over Rittenhouse Verdict

The verdict is in and the trial is over. Kyle Rittenhouse has been judged not guilty on all counts in connection to the shooting in Kenosha, WI. As you might have expected, the left wasn’t too happy about the jury’s decision.


At this very moment, the Twitterverse is full of hot takes from aggrieved, virtue-signaling leftists whining about how America is such a racist nation because it did not convict a man who clearly defended himself from three aggressors. Here are some gems for your viewing pleasure.

Voto Latino, a left-wing activist organization ostensibly dedicated to “empowering a new generation of Latinx voters,” tweeted:

Kyle Rittenhouse has been found “not guilty” on all charges.

We all saw this coming but this is another reminder that white supremacy is alive and well in America.

Far-left progressive group Democracy Now also chimed in, claiming that Rittenhouse’s verdict was the result of “white supremacy.” They tweeted:

The Nation’s @ElieNYC predicted weeks ago that Rittenhouse would likely go free. “I don’t have a crystal ball,” he said. “What I know is the law, and what I know is what white people are willing to do to defend white supremacy.”


New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio defended the men who attacked Rittenhouse, calling them “victims”:

Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum are victims. They should be alive today.

The only reason they’re not is because a violent, dangerous man chose to take a gun across state lines and start shooting people.

To call this a miscarriage of justice is an understatement.

Leftist activist and grifter Shaun King, also known as Martin Luther Cream, takes issue with gun laws that are supposedly used against black Americans. He wrote:

BREAKING: Kyle Rittenhouse was just found NOT GUILTY on ALL charges. Yeah, all of them.

Ultimately, gun laws were imagined, written, and are enforced in America to protect white boys and men.

Those same laws are primarily used punitively against Black people.



MSNBC’s Joy Reid also weighed in:

We knew, but it’s sometimes helpful to remind ourselves how America was designed to work. It continues to work as designed. We have learned again what is considered legal for *some* people to do in America. It’s helpful to know where you stand in your country. Be safe out there.

California state Sen. Scott Wiener brought the shooting of Tamir Rice into the situation:

-12 year old Tamir Rice is killed for looking like a “threat” while playing.

-17 year old vigilante Kyle Rittenhouse — who shot & killed 2 people — is acquitted.

Our racist justice system has once again profoundly failed the American people.

Rashad Robinson, President of Color of Change, also claimed the acquittal was due to white supremacy:


It’s not that Rittenhouse’s acquittal is a win for white supremacy. It’s that Rittenhouse was acquitted BECAUSE white supremacy  still controls the entire process.

The left has been promoting the white supremacy narrative ever since this story was brought to national attention. Left-leaning politicians and media activists insisted Rittenhouse was a virulent white supremacist who was looking for blood in Kenosha on that day.

However, not a single one of these individuals found a shred of evidence showing that the young man holds racist views – and there can be no doubt that they scoured his social media, desperately looking for any post that could be construed as bigoted. Unfortunately, they will continue using this story to push their “everyone is racist” narrative. The question is: Will America buy it?
