Kinda reminds you of the abuse conservative media doles out on reasonable people on a daily basis.
How dare the media impugn the character of a immature heroic wannabe who boasted about his getting away with murder in front of a bunch of white supremacists.
Two people died because of his actions and the rightwing nuts celebrated it.
Just as he cannot legitimately claim self defense for behavior that he instigated, the media cannot assassinate his character, since he has none.
Free as F., right Varvel?
Varvo forgot his meds again
See Nick Anderson’s cartoon today. It says it all…
What a way to distract from Fox Propaganda, featuring FTucker Carlson, showing that it was nothing more than a reality TV show funded, scripted, coached, and filmed to be inspiration to a certain audience and rake in lots of money and viewers. Once the charge of firearm legality was thrown out, the rest was able to fall into place nicely, using Wisconsin’s law. The fact that he perjured himself about several aspects wasn’t on trial here and I doubt anyone is going to follow up on it, because it would be “bad optics”.
And of course, the producer of this reality TV show’s angle:
I hope you guys enjoyed the show. It was a funding and ratings bombshell which makes me wonder what the sequel will be.
As for the judge, given his erratic behavior throughout the trial, he might consider making this his high point and consider retiring to become a contributor to FTucker Carlson’s show.
If exactly the same thing had happened with a black kid and MAGA rally, how would that have turned out for the shooter, and how would Varvel have portrayed the event ?
The mainstream media like MSNBC and CNN are just professional demagogues.
Right, Gary. It’s all the “media’s” fault. Just like January 6, 2020 was the media’s fault too, right Gary?
Let the lawsuits begin. They didn’t learn their lesson from the Covington kid. #FJB.
No character to attack, the kid has no character. The right wing machine will definitely make a caricature of the dumb kid.
Try to quit mining for ‘raci$m"……why CNN lost 80% of its’ viewers this year = fake news/narrative raceraceracewhitesupremacistsetc.
Since when is a not guilty verdict exoneration?
Disgusting isn’t it.. Fox News has exclusive rights to character assassination. No doubt they will sue. Besides, a young boy has every right to play vigilante, this is America afterall.
Shall we take a look at conservative media? How many days do you have?
That’s an accurate image of Rittenhouse instigating a fight according to the low info crowd.
But Carlson lionizing Rittenhouse is OK? Varvel is getting really pathetic (and several days late) in his adherence to the RW propaganda.
And we shall now see if Rittenhouse files for slander on said “news” outlets. Just as Nicholas Sandmann did. https://www.bostonherald.com/2020/07/24/washington-post-settles-250m-lawsuit-with-teen-in-a-maga-hat/
Utter crap. Kyle likes BLM so he won’t be much use for your right wing propaganda.
Oh my, how the right wing needs to save gun rights. Hierarchy of who is the most worthy to survive. What a lovely country we will live in should they get their way. Even white men are fair game if their beliefs don’t conform exactly to the red-hat ideology.
Rittenhouse assassinated his own “character” by illegally acquiring a weapon, crossing state lines with that weapon, lying to police about being a paramedic, and playing out some immature fantasy in Kenosha. He didn’t cry taking two lives. He cried later.
Well they learned from the leader in character assassination, FOX “NEWS”.
Seems that Varvel continues to defend his version of ‘white privilege.’
So you Lefties still support that Terrorist Group BLM that sent Darrel Brooks into that Parade as revenge for Kyle being rightly found innocent ? You commies love mass murders let out to do more damage. SHAME ON YOU ALL.
Rittenhouse was a stupid teenager toting a powerful weapon to scene of unrest. The cops should have stopped him and called his parents. They didn’t, and now 2 people are dead. He’ll need to live with this for the rest of his life.
Actually, that would have been nice if it happened, especially before the guy murdered two unarmed people.
Spot on – again.
Quit making Rittenhouse the victim, he murdered two people in cold blood, even if the NAZIS say he didn’t
White privilege wins out again!
CNN panel celebrates misfortunes of ‘scum’ neo-Nazis after being ‘decimated’ by jury verdict
On CNN Tuesday, a panel celebrated the verdict in the Charlottesville neo-Nazi case, finding key leaders liable for civil conspiracy damages stemming from disaster that unfolded at the 2017 “Unite the Right” Rally.
“The alt-right is dead,” said CNN correspondent Elle Reeve. “Almost every group involved in this has quit the movement. Most of the leaders have quit. The only person making a go at it is Chris Cantwell. He’s been calling into a podcast to gain more followers. But he’s called himself a star, that he’s winning, but it has an air of desperation. The guy is in prison.”
“He’s not a star, he’s scum,” agreed anchor Jim Acosta, who then turned to Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Grenblatt. “Jonathan, the far right leaders and groups are now liable for more than $26 million in damages … could that go some distance in hindering their ability to spread hate? Do you share the view that some of these very awful people have been decimated in their efforts?”
“Here’s the reality,” said Grenblatt. “In the 1980s, they helped to bankrupt the white resistance movement. They lost their compound. They lost earnings. We did that 30, 40 years ago. I think, today, this will be a deterrent to future groups. But here’s the challenge that we have. Extremism has been normalized and still amplified in large part because of social media. And if you think this wasn’t a problem, I would say to you, there’s a through-line from Charlottesville to Capitol Hill. So now we need to turn our attention to the social media companies, where the extremists can amplify their ideas, where they still organize through platforms like Facebook groups, and as they are held accountable, now I think the government is regulating the social media platforms where these conspiracies have been able not just to take route, but planned and implemented by bad actors.”
Sorry GV, the kid did a stupid that cost two lives.
It will be interesting to see how it plays out in civil court.
It is likely that Sandmann walked away with $10’s of Millions, perhaps as high as $100 Million. His case was similar but not identical.
The media will argue that Rittenhouse is a public figure, but that same argument bombed in the Sandmann case. The not guilty verdicts make it easier for Rittenhouse but he will still have to convince a judge and jury that his high public profile was the result of the media frenzy. Proving that the media labeled him a supremacist without any basis or documentation will be a no-brainer
Some “assassination” by liberal media – Rittenhouse is an alt-right celebrity with “street cred”, and two of his victims are still dead…
