NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio Calls Rittenhouse ‘Violent Gunman’ After Verdict Announced

After the announcement that Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted on all charges in the shootings that killed two men and injured a third during last year’s riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Democrat New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio falsely called the two men who were killed by Rittenhouse as they attacked him “victims,” adding that Rittenhouse – who was then 17 years old – was a “violent, dangerous man” and “violent gunman.”

“On August 25, 2020, Rittenhouse – who was then 17 years old – made the short 30-minute trip from the town of Antioch, Illinois, to Kenosha, Wisconsin, with the stated purpose of assisting business owners and residents in protecting their property from rioters and looters,” TheJeffreyLord.com reported. “Rittenhouse walked around the city armed with a semi-automatic rifle for protection and carrying a first aid kit for helping anyone injured in the riots. “

“People are getting injured, and our job is to protect this business, and part of my job is to also help people,” Rittenhouse said in a video before the shootings occurred. “If there’s somebody hurt, I’m running into harm’s way. That’s why I have my rifle, because I need to protect myself, but I also have my med kit.”

As he was guarding a used car dealership, Rittenhouse was attacked and chased by rioters. He ended up shooting two rioters as they tried to attack him, Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber, and injured a third who had aimed his gun at Rittenhouse, Gaige Grosskreutz. All three men shot by Rittenhouse were white.

After four days of jury deliberation, the jury found that Rittenhouse was “not guilty” on all charges.

“This verdict is disgusting and it sends a horrible message to this country,” de Blasio wrote on Twitter in response to the verdict. “Where is the justice in this? We can’t let this go. We need stronger laws to stop violent extremism from within our own nation.  Now is the time.”

“Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum are victims. They should be alive today. The only reason they’re not is because a violent, dangerous man chose to take a gun across state lines and start shooting people. To call this a miscarriage of justice is an understatement,” de Blasio added.  “The far-right trolls who think it makes a difference whether a violent gunman got his weapon before or after he crossed state lines are missing the point: two people are dead and their killer is left unaccountable. That’s not justice and they know it.”

    De Blasio is a perfect example of why Americans suffer. It’s time to rethink who Americans support in positions of power and political influence.

    It figures that a communist, like Deblasio, would vilify a person defending themselves against violent criminal Antifa thugs. All three are criminals, and one was a pedophile, just the Democrat’s kind of hero’s.
