Video of Kyle Rittenhouse peacefully walking with injured protesters & offering to help with any injuries as an ENT before he was attacked by 3 felons. Facebook spent 1 year deleting anyone who posted this video. Pure Evil pic.twitter.com/96wjACRQmS— Melissa Tate (@TheRightMelissa) November 20, 2021

I strongly agree.
This is also my takeaway from Charlottesville.
We were incredibly naive in traveling to Charlottesville to attend the Unite the Right rally. We made a huge mistake in working within the system. We trusted law enforcement with our security. We assumed that a federal court was protecting our constitutional rights by issuing an injunction that allowed the Unite the Right rally to proceed. We trusted the ACLU of Virginia which baited us into a trap.
I spoke with one of my friends tonight who is a Sines v. Kessler defendent about the irony of this case. On the one hand, we had so little confidence in the system that we want to secede from the Union. We are deeply skeptical of liberalism. On the other hand, we trusted the system to protect our rights and liberties in a place like Charlottesville. We went to Charlottesville to champion liberal norms like free speech and free assembly. The outcome of the case has at least resolved the contradiction.
Do you want to go on living in a country like this? We’re not the only ones saying it. Kyle Rittenhouse is saying the same thing. He found himself in an anarchic situation because Democratic state and local officials ceded sovereignty to a violent mob. The same bloodthirsty mob which deliberately allowed anarchy to break out on the streets wielded state power against him in Kenosha. It hasn’t happened once or twice in a few places. It happened all over the country in various cities during the George Floyd riots. This collapse of order is a chronic problem in places like San Francisco, Seattle and Portland.
