With a new administration in Washington it will be a challenge to get the 'liberals' to hold Biden-Harris to the few 'progressive promises' they made during their campaign. Biden is bringing back many of Bush & Obama's neo-cons to head his foreign policy. I'll be on this case without hesitation.

White boy privilege


This is 17 year old Kyle Rittenhouse-Lewis and his mom Wendy.  They live in Illinois where it is against the law for a 17 year old to have a gun. She drove him and his AR-15 rifle from Antioch, IL to Kenosha, WI where it is ALSO AGAINST THE LAW for a 17 year old to have a gun.

But because he was white, FOR HOURS, police watched Kyle Rittenhouse walk all over town with it, and just gave him a pass. ⁣ ⁣ Mommy's boy shot 3 people. 2 died and 1 lost his arm. Then walked right past police and drove himself to Illinois. ⁣

In the wake of the police pumping 7 bullets into the back of Jake Blake at close range in front of his children - Kyle Rittenhouse-Lewis and his Mommy were 'very concerned' about PROPERTY that they did not personally own and how people's grief and rage might impact private property in Kenosha. So, they broke the law to “defend” businesses that they do not own from riots.

Had this white boy been a black man carrying such a weapon, and gunning down three people, cops would have been all over him and shot him dead in the streets.

But because he is white - cops passed him by like nothing.

He was eventually arrested - once he returned home (safe and sound) to Illinois.

The kid and his mom both deserve long jail sentences.  Will that happen?

Welcome to Amerika.
