Kyle Rittenhouse trial was case of media throwing out ethics to throw the book at teen

The left and the media did everything in their power to ensure Kyle Rittenhouse didn’t get a fair trial — from President Joe Biden on down. Thankfully, they failed and he was found not guilty on all charges.

But last year, following a debate with President Donald Trump, Biden tweeted out at an attack on Rittenhouse. “There’s no other way to put it: the President of the United States refused to disavow white supremacists on the debate stage last night,” he wrote. That tweet was coupled with a photo of Rittenhouse.

Celebrities were desperate to see Rittenhouse convicted. Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James, who has cried over basketball more than a gambler who bet on the Washington Generals, bashed Rittenhouse for phony tears. “What tears?????,” he tweeted. “I didn’t see one,” James continued. “Man knock it off! That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court.”

Author Stephen King described Rittenhouse as looking “eerily like Eric Harris, one of the Columbine shooters.” While writer Dylan Park tweeted about the Kenosha, Wisconsin, trial site: “Burn that mfer to the ground.”

And actor Dave Bautista summed up Hollywood’s contribution to the trial: “F–k that kid!”

Bautista’s sentiment is similar to how the media handled the lies about Nicholas Sandman, the Covington High School student abused by the media. Sandman wrote an oped for the Daily Mail comparing the two situations. “The attacks on Kyle came from the national news media, just as they came for me.”

Sandman got settlements from a couple outlets but wrote how he is “still involved in six media lawsuits.” He warned how tough such cases are but urged Rittenhouse to “give it a shot and hold the media accountable.” – READ MORE
