Let’s remember who’s really to blame for the disastrous night Rittenhouse shot two dead

John Scott Lewinski

The trial of Kyle Rittenhouse, the deaths of two men, the destruction of a Wisconsin town – none of this happens if progressive Governor Tony Evers had been tougher and prevented a riot from happening.

It all took place less than a 45-minute drive from my front door amidst the quiet green of Wisconsin: The police shooting of Jacob Blake in 2020; the subsequent protest marches through Milwaukee that summer; the riots that burned Kenosha; the arming of Kyle Rittenhouse; the deadly gunplay that killed convicted criminals Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber; the ugly trial of Rittenhouse that captured the nation’s nauseated attention; and the inevitable and destructive verdict of not guilty.

What’s lost in these days of deepening racial animus in the wake of the verdict is the cynical truth that those August 2020 riots and the confrontation of Rittenhouse, Rosenbaum, and Huber would never have happened if the weak, impotent progressive Evers hadn’t given his passive permission for the Kenosha protesters to torch the city rather than risk offending the nation’s blue voting base.
