The leftist media’s push to convict Kyle Rittenhouse in the shooting of three criminals during last year’s Blake Riots in Kenosha is as embarrassing as it is tenacious.
Presented with the obvious headline and first sentence for the stories about yesterday’s testimony from Gaige Grosskreutz, whom Rittenhouse shot in the arm, the Convict-Kyle media didn’t disappoint.
Grosskreutz testified, some reported blandly.
He “feared for his life,” others said.
He thought Rittenhouse was an “active shooter,” another explained.
All true, except that not one of those claims was the news.
Grosskreutz admitted that Rittenhouse shot him only after Grosskreutz pointed his pistol at the then 17-year-old, who was on the ground defending himself from the raging, leftist mob that had chased him, knocked him down, and attempted to kill him.
