By the way, Kenosha Kyle is not “at clear moral fault for the two deaths,” unless people like Hillyer are prepared to argue that the moral thing to do when faced with imminent death, as Kenosha Kyle clearly was, is to roll over and die. And let it be known for the record that one of the dead Communists was a pedophile. The other was a domestic abuser. While we’re arguing morality, those two details ought to be included in the discussion.
Never mind that, though. There’s a more basic point to be argued here.
Nobody, especially not anyone on the political Right, is required to cede the streets of their communities to violent Communists who intend to burn them to the ground. Kyle Rittenhouse and his friends had as much of a right to be out on those streets as the violent Communists, as the reporters, as the casual observers, and as anyone else did.
If the authorities are unwilling to protect our livelihoods, our property, and our lives, it is our responsibility to step up and do it ourselves. Absent law enforcement to quell violent riots, the only outcome will be total leftist anarchy. If defending our communities ourselves or watching enraged, misfit delinquents take a torch to them are our only options, give me the 17-year-old with the AR-15. I’d choose him every single time.
Do you think the Biden Administration is going to do anything to stop them? Or the FBI that has all but deputized these black-clad Marxists to be their soldiers in that agency’s war on the Right? Of course not. Joe Biden doesn’t know what planet he’s on, and the FBI hates you.
Local law enforcement, I’m sad to say, will likely be just as worthless. The people in charge of these contentious cities and suburbs are nearly always Democrats, ready to give a stand-down order to local police at a moment’s notice.
Whether Rittenhouse is acquitted—and he should be—does not matter.
Don’t turn your community over to the mob.
