Earlier this week, 18 year-old Kyle Ritenour, who was accused of double murder, was acquitted of all charges. Kyle is a like a political lightening rod. The Left sees him as a murder; while the Right sees him as a hero. Actually, he is somewhere in the middle of those two extremes.
I don’t know what motivated Kyle to have his mother drive him to Portland, Or., where he carried an AR15 into the midst of a riot. A very left-wing riot, I may add. The crowd, which was attempting to burn down federal buildings and throwing frozen water bottles at the police, was totally out of control. And the mayor of Portland and governor of Oregon didn’t seem to care about it. Is it so hard to believe that some citizens would take the law into their hands. I think not.
On Jan. 6, 2021 a band of hooligans stormed the United States Capital building. (video) Make no mistake in thinking otherwise, this was an attemped coup of the United States Government. The intent of the mob (there’s no more accurate way to describe them) was to stop the certification of the 2020 election between Joe Biden and Donald Trump. Biden was decared the legitimate winner and, though the Trump organization issued challange after challenge concering the results of the election, over 40 different judges (Republican and Demorat) ruled that there were no irregularities in the voting. The mob crashing the Capital gates yelling “stop the steal.” The video here is a shortened version of the one witnessed by the Jan. 6 commission. It depicts a group of mad idealogues assualting policemen, destroying property, and threatening to–believe it or not–hang Vice President Mike Pence. Warning: this video contains obscene language and violence.
