Those who followed corporate coverage of the Kyle Rittenhouse trial and nothing else might have come away with the belief that Rittenhouse was an avowed white supremacist who shot and killed three black people.

Rittenhouse, the narrative goes, crossed state lines with an illegal firearm to shoot righteous demonstrators rioting in the noble name of social justice. Although the distance traveled was a whopping 20 miles to a community where he’s worked, volunteered, and visited his father, the firearm used was a legally obtained weapon, and the three shot were all white (one survived), that hasn’t stopped the left-wing narrative seizing on Rittenhouse’s case to foment racial tension. It also hasn’t stopped the toxic narrative from feeding ill-guided grievance.

“It’s not okay for a man to grab a rifle, travel across state lines, and shoot three people and walk free,” said self-proclaimed comedian Amber Ruffin moments after a Kenosha jury ruled Rittenhouse acted in self-defense.

Really incredible how almost every one of these outraged people gets basic facts in the case wrong. It’s almost as if they start with a conclusion and don’t actually care about what happened. https://t.co/N8RXBSdOiu

“It’s not okay for the judicial system to be blatantly and obviously stacked against people of color,” she added, alluding to the broader narrative Rittenhouse was only acquitted because he was white. Never mind that minorities walk away from murder charges on self-defense claims all of the time. Amy Swearer, a legal fellow at the conservative Heritage Foundation, chronicles several stories in the Twitter thread linked below:
