WHAT LEFTISTS DO
Ha, ha! Silly you.
Considering how good leftists are at using any development to advance their nefarious causes, I wouldn’t be surprised if, at some point, an armed rioter shoots somebody and claims the Rittenhouse case gave him the right to do so.
He’ll cite the principle of “equal treatment under the law”…
If a White boy can get away with using deadly force against three attackers, then a social justice warrior (of whatever color) should be able to use deadly force to defend against any violence or threat of violence — even by the police — no matter who or what provoked it.
I’m not saying this would hold up in court (on the rare occasion when leftist rioters might go to court, that is), but it’s likely to be attempted. And all those somber legal experts trotted out to offer their sage opinions on TV news shows will frown gravely and opine that the assertion is plausible.
