From the New York Post:
New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Saturday slammed what she called a “double standard” within the criminal justice system after accused Kenosha killer Kyle Rittenhouse was sprung from jail on a $2 million bond.
The 17-year-old’s release on Friday had sparked outrage on social media from some Democrats who argued it was an example of racial privilege within the system.
“Does anyone believe Rittenhouse would be released if he were Muslim & did the same thing in a diff context?” Ocasio-Cortez asked on Twitter.
The Left has to inject race into everything. Everything. Racism is in everything and nothing is without racism.
Kyle Rittenhouse is claiming self-defense.
AOC would have you believe that he went on a mass shooting spree and that the only reason he was given bail is that he’s white.
Rittenhouse was able to afford the $2 million bail because of an online fundraiser backed by a Hollywood D-list celebrity.
At the same time, big-name Hollywood celebrities like Seth Rogen, Steve Carell, and Ben Schwartz, as well as vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris, supported a fund to bail Antifa rioters out of jail.
That’s not privilege, but Rittenhouse is.
She wasn’t the only one.
Chesa Boudin, the DA od San Francisco hopped onto this as well.
He’s attacking a 17-year-old from a working-class family like he’s a millionaire.
The point of this is to poison the jury pool and pop-culture against Rittenhouse.
If you don’t watch the video, you’d think that a Rittenhouse opened fire into a crowd of peaceful black people then his wealthy parents bailed him out.
They want him convicted, not on the facts of the case but because they want you to believe he’s a wealthy, privileged, white supremacist who needs to pay.
If Rittenhouse is exonerated by the evidence, the poisoning of the pop-culture will cause riots that made the Rodney King riots look tame.
It’s despicably unethical for a sitting Congresswoman and DA to say shit like this from their official Twitter accounts about a case that hasn’t going to trial yet, but despicably unethical is on-brand for Progressive Democrats.
