What the Rittenhouse case tells us about the Democrats and the Right to Defend Oneself

The Democrats are up in arms, literally, about the not guilty verdict on all charges against a young American named Kyle Rittenhouse. The jury didn’t kowtow to the media narrative, or to the threats made against them, as they deliberated on a case involving one of the most fundamental and basic right of every American citizen – the right to self-defense.

Just as nations defend themselves so do their citizens. We have seen what happens when any government takes away this God given right for citizens to defend themselves, their  families, their property and their businesses.

EXAMPLE: Unarmed citizens, in the case of Nazi Germany, couldn’t defend themselves after Hitler took away their guns and then forced them onto railcars headed to death camps.

Stand Your Ground Laws

According to Giffords Law Center:

There are no federal Stand Your Ground laws. This is a policy addressed solely by state laws, judicial decisions, jury instructions, or a combination of all three.

A majority of states (30) have now enacted Stand Your Ground laws applicable in all public places, starting with Utah in 199412 and then, at the behest of the NRA, Florida in 2005.13 In eight others, court decisions have removed a traditional “duty to retreat” in public.

For example, in 2005 Florida became the second state to pass a “Stand Your Ground” law:

The “Stand Your Ground” Law introduced two (2) conclusive presumptions that favor a criminal defendant who is making a self-defense claim:

  1. The presumption that the defendant had a reasonable fear that deadly force was necessary; and
  2. The presumption that the intruder intended to commit an unlawful act involving force or violence.

These two presumptions protect the defender from both civil and criminal prosecution for unlawful use of deadly or non-deadly force in self-defense. In addition, the defender/gun owner has no duty to retreat, regardless of where he is attacked, so long as he is in a place where he is lawfully entitled to be when the danger occurs.

Democrat Lies and Tucker Carlson Truths

Democrats don’t want Americans to stand their ground against a thief, an attacker or an angry mob. What Democrats want is to disarm every American citizen by any and all means necessary. While Democrats have personal bodyguards they want to defund our police, leaving you defenseless.

Tucker Carlson makes these key points during his monologue:

  1. Kyle Rittenhouse was in Kenosha, Wisconsin because in 2020 when mob violence took place after the local police shot Jacob Blake, a black man. Interestingly, after the Kenosha riots Joe Biden said, “Rioting is not protesting. Looting is not protesting. Setting fires is not protesting. None of this is protesting, it’s lawlessness, plain and simple. “And those who do it should be prosecuted. Violence will not bring change. It will only bring destruction. It’s wrong in every way.” Ironic isn’t it.
  2. The jurors had great moral courage, despite threats of violence against them, when they focused on the facts of the case, not the politics surrounding it.
  3. It was obvious, from the evidence, that Kyle Rittenhouse acted in self defense.
  4. There were months of relentless lying about the Kyle Rittenhouse case.
  5. Propaganda doesn’t always win.
  6. As a legal matter this Rittenhouse case is over.
  7. For the authoritarians amongst us this [case] is a disaster. Why? Because the Rittenhouse case is a referendum on the most basic right of all, the ancient, right to self defense.
  8. If Kyle Rittenhouse can save his own life from the mob, then you can too.
  9. New York Democrat Jerry Nadler wants the Department of Justice to make the Rittenhouse case a “federal” one. You would have to be deranged to even think of something like this.
  10. If the case goes to the DOJ then it would be handled by Kristen Clark, a black nationalist. Clark weighed in on the Rittenhouse case and made it all about color as if white is some kind of crime. Clark was quoted as being concerned about “armed white men killing innocent people.” Kyle and those he shot were all white.
  11. Since this case began for Democrats it has all been about race.
  12. The false accusation that Kyle Rittenhouse took his gun across state lines is meant as a wedge to create legislation that nullifies concealed carry reciprocity laws and the right to carry weapons across state lines.


Self defense is a fundamental right for every human being. Water down or take away that right and you have tyranny.

In his book 1984 George Orwell wrote, “It’s a beautiful thing, the destruction of words.”

In the case of Kyle Rittenhouse we have seen elected officials, prosecuting attorneys, the media and Democrats destroy words like self defense, right to keep bear arms, right to protect one’s property.

We live in a land where we have equal justice under the law and the presumption that one is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

Democrats are now destroying these words and replacing them with guilty even if your proven innocent by a jury of your peers.

Gird your loins. Here come the thought police.

    No federal case against Rittenhouse exists unless, like the sham Trump impeachments the House Democrats like Nadler under Pelosi’s leadership invents something fake..

    Nadler is a dangerous, atheist, socialist and should be removed from the House Judiciary Committee when the Republicans take back the house in 2022. He is a liar and a traitor to our Constitution secure in his NY City district where lawlessness is apparently OK with those who vote for him.
