Rep. Jeffries Blasted on Twitter For Saying ‘Lock Up’ Rittenhouse

Wednesday afternoon on Twitter, social media users slammed mentally-challenged racist Rep. Hakeem Jeffries for tweeting, “Lock up Kyle Rittenhouse and throw away the key,” referring to the white teenager currently embroiled in a political show trial for shooting three white domestic terrorists in self-defense during a 2020 Black Lives Matter (BLM) riot in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Jeffries happens to be a very vocal critic of America’s criminal justice system. He has often complained the country jails too many citizens and has called for the defunding of police departments. “End. Mass. Incarceration. Defund The Prison Industrial Complex,” he tweeted in June 2020. As recent as this March, he called mass incarceration a “stain on our democracy.”

Social media users quickly and rightfully pounced on his hypocrisy for calling for Rittenhouse to be imprisoned for life.

“What changed, dude?” one user questioned.

“This is a sitting congressman commenting on a jury trial as it happens. Very disturbing,” tweeted Fox News senior editor Will Ricciardella.

We all know that if Rittenhouse were a black BLM supporter who shot Trump supporters, Jeffries and the bloodthirsty Democrat media complex smearing Rittenhouse as a white supremacist would be supporting his right to self-defense.

In a January 28, 2021 interview with MSNBC, Jeffries characterized supporters of former President Trump as “domestic terrorists and the white supremacists.” Asked “what happens if there’s no accountability for him or the rioters” who had occupied the Capitol on January 6, the congressman replied: “[P]art of the lesson of the first impeachment trial for him was that he could shoot holes in the Constitution on Pennsylvania Avenue and get away with it because Senate Republicans were prepared to bury their heads in the sand…. [E]very available option to hold him accountable for his actions should be undertaken…. And we’re not going to be cowed by the domestic terrorists and the white supremacists and the enemy combatants who want to stop us in our tracks. That would be giving in to them, and that’s not going to happen.”
