Leftist Groups Are Targeting Kyle Rittenhouse

Rittenhouse will never live a regular life again unless he changes his name and has extensive plastic surgery to hide his true identity. Perhaps he might transform into a lady to confound the communists who are now trying to kill him.

MEChA (Movimiento Estudiantil Chicanx de Aztlán), Students for Socialism, Students for Justice in Palestine, and the Multicultural Solidarity Coalition are student organizations planning a demonstration this week to “get murderer Kyle Rittenhouse off the campus.” He is not on campus because he is an online student, but he has indicated an interest in attending ASU in person. Students and professors are encouraged to participate in the event to “defend students from a violent, bloodthirsty murderer.”

Moreover, they want ASU to support a rape crisis center and a multicultural center instead of the police. Who would stop him if he brought his AR-15 to school to cause harm? Does gender study funny selves with blue hair? ASU must make its support for Rittenhouse’s right to an education on its campuses evident and public. If ASU cannot generate the guts and integrity to restate those rights openly, it has abandoned a key distinguishing feature of higher education. Turley says that colleges typically sit in frightened silence as individual students are targeted and tormented.

Rittenhouse cannot be dismissed or barred from college because of mob action, and he would easily win in court. On the other hand, the demonstration and language amplify the threat to his safety posed by those who want “accountability” regardless of the outcome. There is no precedent for a student being expelled for being cleared of a crime.

There are a sizable number of people who no longer believe in the rule of law. It does not augur well for a future that is reasonable and organized. Kyle Rittenhouse will face an uphill struggle to attend college because of our lawless politicians and illogical law enforcement system.
