The Defense Rests

That was quick. 

The defense in the Kyle Rittenhouse show trial has rested. I sort of wondered if they would even bother to mount a defense. I would have been tempted to get up and say:

"Your honor, the prosecution has done a better job of exonerating Kyle than any defense team ever could and therefore we rest without calling a single witness"

What follows will be yet another case study in the difference between "Right" and "Left" in America. 

If Kyle Rittenhouse, against all reason and jurisprudence, is somehow found guilty, the Right will be steaming mad but as usual we will bottle up that anger and keep plodding forward. What should be done is nothing I can post here but what should happen, won't happen. Even in cases of obvious injustice, we generally just let it go, in no small measure because none of us want to be in a cell next to Kyle. We have too much to lose.

On the other hand, if Kyle is rightly exonerated on the most serious charges (I assume he will get dinged for some minor stuff), the Left has already communicated their intent to burn cities. Individuals have openly stated that a not guilty verdict will lead to violence, and these individuals are getting away with it. Should Kyle walk on most or all of the charges, violence will certainly erupt. The Left knows they can get away with it and most of them are fucking losers who have nothing to lose by spending some time in jail. For many of them it would be the first time they have slept away from home and also the first time they had a shower in many moons.

While our "government" keeps telling people about the imminent threat of Right-wing domestic terrorism, a guilty verdict won't lead to anyone on /ourside/ doing anything violent while a not-guilt verdict will result in the Left exploding. 

The rank hypocrisy and outright lying is something that needs to be pointed out to your normie friends. As others have said, if what Kyle did, regardless of why he was there or whether he should have been there, doesn't count as self-defense, then nothing counts as self-defense and that has ominous implications for all of us.

It also is worth pondering. As our zeal and commitment seems to never match that of our enemies, should we really be surprised and upset when they continually seem to be winning? 

The verdict should be fairly quick in coming back and then we will see what happens.

Until then some delightful memes.

Lots of variations on the "fucked around and found out" theme:


Not the hero we wanted but the hero we needed

  1. Arthur, all of us have something to lose in this culture/violent war. And the war is increasingly coming down on white people. White people who had no skin in this game or hurt anyone. Middle class whites had nothing to do with NAFTA, BLM, communism, etc....but we're going to have to fix it.

    I just had some dental work done. Don't want to be in agony when things go south. Next a dental cleaning for my husband and I. If there are any issues, they're getting fixed.

    Next is eye exam. We both need new glasses. An eye doctor and a dentist can tell you about things coming down the health pike, before a GP can. The eyes are a window into the soul and the teeth can tell you a lot about a person's health.

    I'm stocking up on Advil, OTC medicine like peroxide, Mercuro-Chrome, baking soda, tumeric, activated charcoal, Diatomaceous earth, etc. There might not be any doctors or dentists around.

    Yes I know this takes money. I've already spent a boatload of money on supplements and these things. I'll postpone dining out, buying a new blouse or jeans. It won't kill me.

    Many of us will die..it could be my husband and I. But we're not living now. We're in hell. And I want out of hell and live a peaceful life.

    1. Likewise, we have been stocking up on OTC meds since the early days of the pandemic. I do need to get new glasses and a backup pair now, I don't need them except to drive but still I want to make sure I have them. Pretty much anything that will become scarce is something to be stocked up.

    2. If you have the money I recommend finding a good LASIK surgeon and getting your vision corrected. Then you don't need to worry about losing or breaking your glasses after a SHTF situation.

    1. Yes he did. Astounding, really. And just 17 years old.

  3. “If Kyle Rittenhouse, against all reason and jurisprudence, is somehow found guilty…” If reason and jurisprudence mattered anymore, Kyle would never have been arrested. The Left has infected everything it possible could---including the Law, especially the Law---with its perverse and degenerate politics. The result is that Law as properly understood since Hammurabi no longer exists in the US outside of a few enclaves.

    “...what should happen, won't happen…” We cannot know that. Up until Fort Sumter how many in the US desired a civil war? Secession, certainly. Even after Lexington, very few in the colonies were clamoring for war with Britain. Let’s not pretend to be Nostradamus. It is unlikely in the extreme that 100,000,000 well-armed Americans will simply climb into boxcars.

    “...none of us want to be in a cell next to Kyle…” True enough, but there are other alternatives---many in fact. It is not at all “either – or”.

    “As our zeal and commitment seems to never match that of our enemies…” How can this be measured? It is the mark of a mature man to avoid jumping off a precipice into the unknown unless he absolutely must do so. Our enemies act as arrogant and coddled children. Should we act the same? Remember the advice of Talleyrand: “Above all, no zeal.” I measure our “zeal” in the number of firearms sold in the past decade or so, not by how many of us are running about screaming at the top of our lungs.

    “the Left has already communicated their intent to burn cities…” So? Only Democrat controlled cities will burn. There is as yet not a thing we can do about that. “What, me worry?” And if they tried such things in, say, Oklahoma City?

    All the antics of the Left are being done out in the open, right before everyone’s eyes. It is as if they believe nothing will happen to them. Let them wallow in their fantasy. They are as the turkey who gets up every day and enjoys himself with eating, mating, warbling and running all around. He believes that every day will be as the last.

    Then comes Thanksgiving.

  4. ...As our zeal and commitment seems to never match that of our enemies, should we really be surprised and upset when they continually ....

    No. In fact I think it is 50 -50 odds the "right" will go extinct for lack of fire in the belly. They like their new pick up trucks, internet, and Amazon free shipping too much.

    ...We cannot know that. Up until Fort Sumter how many in the US desired a civil war?...

    Fair enough but until I see at keast one electrical substation go up in flames, my opinion is white men are the weakest demographic in the whole world. "bbbbut muh job... bbbut the constitution, i might lose my house full chinese made shit."

    ...

    They are genociding us. They want to molest oir children. Do you have to witness an actual rape before youve had enough?

    ...It is unlikely in the extreme that 100,000,000 well-armed Americans will simply climb into boxcars...

    promise them an xbox and an Iphone and you would have a line to get on the box cars. Or just get some cocksucker in a lab coat with a shred of authority and and the sheep will bleat to get on.

    1. You have harsh words---insulting actually---for those you consider on your side.

      “..white men are the weakest demographic in the whole world...bbbbut muh job... bbbut the constitution, i might lose my house full chinese made shit...promise them an xbox and an Iphone and you would have a line to get on the box cars…”

      Those are the words of either a fool or an enemy or an agent provocateur. I want to believe you are none of these.

      Whom do you hope to convince by such overheated rhetoric? I hope your words are much harsher toward those who would escort you to the Gulag.

      “They are genociding us.” No they are not, unless the meaning of ‘genocide’ has changed since I wrote my comment.

      “Genocide is the intentional action to destroy a people—usually defined as an ethnic, national, racial, or religious group—in whole or in part.”

      Extravagant and over-the-top language used to support a cause might prove you a zealot, but it does nothing to prove your case. The Left is not composed simply of radical and brainwashed imbeciles. They have as much intention of killing 100,000,000 Americans as the Democrats did (1860 – 1865) in killing all their slaves---that is, none. They mean to enslave and to humiliate. Certainly they need to kill a few hundred thousand “to encourage the others.” But I doubt they can even mange that.

      Literature that deals with our situation has no mention of genocide---neither “1984” nor “Brave New World” nor “Hunger Games” nor “Darkness at Noon”. It is concerned with submission. They need us mostly alive to work the factory and fields, and to repair machinery and infrastructure. While we labor away, they imagine themselves frolicking through green grass and under blue skies.

      If you choose pessimism then you have already surrendered---that is, you have done what the Left wants you to do. Imagine if Washington had had your attitude.

  5. ....If Kyle Rittenhouse, against all reason and jurisprudence, ...

    I won an acquittal in a theft of means of transporatation case when I put my client on the stand. He was old, weak, and frail, and had an oxygen tank. Him fucking with his oxygen tank helped win my case because I asked a juror.

    He was truly innocent and I think that makes a difference.

    My point is all the talking heads say putting your client on the stand is automatic malpractice. I think that is fucking stupid. If you are representing Ted Bundy, thats one thing. Yes, if your client did the crime then dont put him on the stand. Representing innocent people requires a different strategy.

    Fun fact. A defense lawyer friend of mine won a a 2 day trial with his fly open the entire 2nd day.
