One University Uses the Kyle Rittenhouse Verdict to Create Racial 'Safe Spaces'

The Kyle Rittenhouse trial was clearly not about race, and squarely about self-defense and our rights as citizens. Tragically, this did not stop the Left, through their mouthpieces in the legacy media, from trying to insert every racist trope, canard, and false flag into their narrative and commentary as the trial played out. Now that the trial is over, and Rittenhouse has been found Not Guilty on all counts, they are doing their utmost to keep the race train going so that their narrative is not totally destroyed.


From the Washington Examiner:

“The Center for Diversity and Inclusiveness is creating space for our community to process the ‘not guilty’ on all accounts verdict in the Kenosha, Wisconsin case where Kyle Rittenhouse, an Illinois native, shot and killed two people protesting the wrongful death of Jacob Blake in 2020,” the original email read.

My eyes are stuck at the back of my head. These administrators obviously poured milk on stupid the morning they crafted this nonsense. Last we checked, Jacob Blake is alive and well, albeit partially paralyzed after being shot seven times by a police officer, whom Blake attacked with a knife. No death involved, nor did anything wrongful happen. The Kenosha County District Attorney Mike Graveley declined to press charges against the officer involved in Blake’s shooting.

A little less than a week ago, The New York Times wrote a puff profile on Jacob Blake. It would have been a bit hard to do that if he were dead, no?

As a jury of 12 Kenosha County residents weighed the fate of Kyle Rittenhouse, who fatally shot two men and wounded a third amid unrest last summer, Jacob Blake, the man who was partially paralyzed in the police shooting that ignited the protests, was miles away in Chicago, where he undergoes physical therapy in an effort to walk again.

Mr. Blake, 30, has set a goal of walking on his own by next summer, said his uncle, Justin Blake, who has remained on the steps outside the courthouse in Kenosha, Wis., during much of Mr. Rittenhouse’s trial.

“He has bad days, there’s no doubt, but he’s so grateful to be alive,” Justin Blake said of Jacob Blake, who, his uncle said, has not been following every turn in the Rittenhouse trial and instead has kept his attention on healing and a new side job, printing T-shirts. “He needs to be focusing on himself, focusing on his children and his new normal,” Justin Blake said.

In August 2020, Jacob Blake was training to become a mechanic and living in Kenosha when a woman with whom he has several children called 911 and said he was about to drive away in her rental car. In minutes, Kenosha police officers arrived at the woman’s home, where the authorities later said they planned to arrest Mr. Blake on an outstanding warrant for a sexual assault charge that was eventually dropped.

When Mr. Blake, who is Black, appeared to try to enter the car as he held a knife in one hand, Rusten Sheskey, a white officershot him seven times. Several of Mr. Blake’s children were in the back seat of the car.


One wonders, if the insertion of the highlighted text (emphasis mine) were not in there, and no one knew the details of this story beforehand, what would their impression be? Why does the legacy media find it necessary to do this? If the police officer were Black, would the NY Times have mentioned it? Doubtful.

The Blake shooting had nothing to do with race, and everything to do with police responding to a person with a criminal history of sexual assault who wielded a deadly weapon. This fish wrap of record simply glosses over these facts because the charge was “eventually dropped.” So were certain charges against the men who attacked Kyle Rittenhouse. More on this further down.

So, the racism under every rock crowd needed to create a parallel with the violence and unrest in Kenosha caused by the Blake shooting, and attach it to the Rittenhouse trial. Kyle’s only role in the Kenosha violence was defending himself against men who, had the legacy media bothered to tell the story, would be considered dregs of society. Instead, everyone from Joy Reid, to BLM, to elected officials like the Mayor-elect of New York Eric Adams, have decided it’s a clear case of a systemically racist justice system at work.

Take all the seats.

The facts of the case, including the people who attacked Rittenhouse that night (and lost their lives/body parts as a result), point to nothing but a frightened boy who fought for his life and was wise enough to have a gun to defend himself. It’s the same conclusion a jury of his peers came to.


According to several sources, including a March expose in Wisconsin Right Now, Joseph Rosenbaum was a serial pedophile and violent felon who served 11 years for molesting young boys. He was in Kenosha merely to riot. He had more than a few restraining orders against him at the time, so I’m sure he wasn’t in the best of moods when he was chasing Rittenhouse down in order to kill him.

Anthony Huber tried to take away Rittenhouse’s AR-15 while attempting to bludgeon him with his skateboard. The U.K. Sun described Huber as a “talented skateboarder.” Trying to take off someone’s head with a skateboard is definitely quite a talent.


And what can we say about the surviving witness, Gaige Grosskreutz, the “paramedic” who testified on the stand that he pointed a gun at Kyle Rittenhouse’s head before Rittenhouse divested him of his upper arm?

Grosskreutz has an arrest history longer than his arm (the non-injured one), much of it expunged or dismissed. That’s an investigation worth exploring, and thanks to Wisconsin Right Now, we have the criminal background of Grosskreutz, as well as Joseph Rosenbaum, and Anthony Huber. Why does someone who appears to be a serial offender keep getting off? Who is behind the expungement of these records?


It all still stinks to high heaven. Thanks to the feckless prosecution, Grosskreutz told the actual truth about what happened that night.

As my colleague Bonchie reported:

Under questioning, Grosskreutz admitted that Rittenhouse did not shoot him when his hands were raised. Rather, it was when Grosskreutz pointed his gun at Rittenhouse and charged the teen that shots were discharged.

Along with being not-so-solid citizens, and aggressors against Kyle Rittenhouse, these men are all WHITE. So, how does Kyle Rittenhouse ventilating these crackers turn into a case embedded in racism and white supremacy?

But this is the narrative that gets fed and furthered by adults who should know better. These “administrators” have your impressionable young minds on their college campus, and they are doing what they will with them. Right now, they’re trying to divide, isolate, and cause a race war.

The email went on to list times for separate gatherings of “students of color” and their “white student” allies in designated spaces. Similar race-segregated spaces were listed for faculty and staff.

“This moment has and will undoubtedly impact many in our community, so please see these spaces as an opportunity to discuss your thoughts, emotions, and reflections,” the email read.


How is this impacting anyone in this community at a Massachusetts university? Massachusetts is 1,047 miles away from Kenosha, Wisconsin. If this was Madison, WI, maybe I could understand it. But there should be no great impact for a university that is six states, and one Great Lake to the east of Wisconsin. This is simply an irresponsible school administration manufacturing and magnifying a local issue in another state to gin up student discontent and unrest. They are using students like Pavlov’s dog—their own personal social experiment—and parents pay $80,000 a year or more for it.

Might be time to consider trade school for your eager young mind. You’ll get a better return on your investment.

It’s a crime, and just like the parents with children in primary education are standing up against what their children are being indoctrinated with, so parents of young adults in secondary education need to do the same.

Stop letting them destroy your children.
