Joe Biden thought it was appropriate to call a teenager who killed two people in self-defense during a Black Lives Matter riot in Kenosha, Wisconsin last year a White supremacist.
Kyle Rittenhouse’s mother, Wendy Rittenhouse, claimed in an interview last week with Sean Hannity that Biden defamed her son by calling him that misnomer in a campaign ad. It’s not a surprise because Biden made race a central part of his message to attack President Trump and to further divide Americans. She said, “I was in shock. I was angry. President Biden don’t know my son, whatsoever. He did that for the votes. I was so angry for a while at him and what he did to my son.”
Rittenhouse fatally shot Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, Anthony Huber, 26, and wounded Gaige Grosskreutz, 27 during a confrontation. There’s video evidence that each of the three men was running after Rittenhouse and making attempts to take his gun. Grosskreutz, who was armed at the time, himself said he tried to and pointed his gun at Rittenhouse and that’s when he got shot in the arm. The prosecution admitted Rittenhouse was getting chased that night.
The reason Rittenhouse was in Kenosha was that he was there after hearing a request from a car lot owner who suffered damage from riots the night before and the police weren’t doing anything to protect citizens. There were previous reports of physical assaults against police and business owners so he brought the gun for protection. Rittenhouse, a lifeguard, also was there to offer medical attention to people who needed it.
It’s not a surprise because Biden made race a central part of his message to attack President Trump and to further divide Americans.
Rittenhouse was like millions of other Americans who were disgusted about the violence and decided to help protect innocent people. Few people would say this was a smart decision for a 17-year-old to put himself into and was poor parenting to let him. This doesn’t resemble the profile of a White supremacist, but that didn’t stop Biden from calling him that. What would Biden have said if he was Black and the same things happened?
Wendy Rittenhouse hasn’t confirmed or denied she would bring a defamation lawsuit against Biden. She said, “Our lawyers are gonna handle that." It would be interesting if that happened and probably should. The Left uses racist and White supremacist charges to destroy opponents because everyone is afraid to get called those things. It would be for some pushback against those charges to make people think twice about doing it.
This doesn’t resemble the profile of a White supremacist, but that didn’t stop Biden from calling him that.
The Left has a pattern of defaming White kids who don’t align with their systemic racism narrative. Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann got tarred and feathered a racist when he encountered protesters after attending a pro-life rally in 2019. He won a $250 million defamation lawsuit against The Washington Post and $800 million combined against CNN, ABC, CBS, The Guardian, The Hill, and NBC.
The best way to stop left-wing slander and false attacks is to hit where it hurts most. If more of these lawsuits go through, left-wing activists may hesitate at calling opponents the worst insults possible. If everything and everyone is racist or a White supremacist, then no one and nothing is. You can only cry wolf so many times before people stop caring and then there’s a real wolf at the door when no one believes it.
Biden owes Rittenhouse and his family an apology. Don’t count on it because that won’t help the race narrative the Left is committed to advancing. He made a baseless charge and his family had to move because they were getting death threats. That kind of inflammatory language destroys reputations and puts lives in danger. Don’t expect Biden to correct the record. The only way these race attacks stop is when enough Americans stand up and fight back against the race hustle from the Left.
