This massacre at the Christmas parade? “Karma”

An Illinois Democrat, head of social media for her party, Mary Lemansky, caused an uproar by tweeting: “It was probably self-defense #Wisconsin #KyleRittenhouse.” Then “I just believe in karma and it backfired quickly against the citizens of Wisconsin.”

On Friday, in the same state of Wisconsin, Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted by a popular jury after killing two men last year during riots and protests against police violence in Kenosha, located about 80 km from Waukesha. Jurors ruled that he acted in self-defense.

Likewise, Donald Trump Jr, son of the former Republican president, drew a parallel on Twitter between the two cases, accusing the Democrats of Joe Biden of turning a blind eye to Darrell E. Brooks, a “repeated criminal”, after beating down on the “Good Samaritan” Rittenhouse.

Each event is interpreted according to opposing reading grids, because people “have become deaf to facts which contradict their ideological predispositions”, he explains.

This is how the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse, erected, in certain right-wing circles, as the face of resistance to the disorders that may have accompanied the demonstrations of the Black Lives Matter movement (“black lives matter”), has become emblematic of the fractures of the first world power.

The racial question took its place in another trial, that of three white Americans tried for the murder of jogger Ahmaud Arbery. They “attacked” him only “because he was black”, hammered Monday the prosecutor.
