Turkeys For Rittenhouse


CjonesRGB11252021

Thanks to the verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial where he got off on all four charges that involved killing two people and wounding one, in addition to having two other charges thrown out, it’s now right-wing white nationalist hunting season on anti-racism protesters.

The law-and-order party is championing vigilantism to run rampant throughout the nation. They’re championing minors to patrol streets with automatic weapons they can’t own legally. They’re championing minor vigilantes lying about their age and their medical credentials. They’re championing minors taking AR-15s to clean graffiti and give medical attention.

The law-and-order party is praising that a minor with an assault rifle killed a registered sex offender. Basically, the law-and-order party is saying, “Fuck trials, fuck the trials that already sentenced the guy, fuck his probation, and fuck whether or not you know he’s a pedophile.” Oh, yeah. Funny thing. It doesn’t matter if one of Kyle’s victims was a pedophile or a Catholic priest. Shit. Bad example. Anyway, Kyle, the slapper of teenage girls, is the gunhumpers’ champion against pedophilia. By the way, most of these people excited over Kyle killing a pedophile are silent over pedophiles in the Catholic Church.

Kyle, the guy who flashes the universal white power symbol while drinking underage with a bunch of Proud Boys (no, it wasn’t a gay bar…I think), is the right’s champion of shooting people for protesting against racism.

Thanks to a corrupt judge and a corrupt system, Kyle gets to spend Thanksgiving with his racist mother. And I guarantee you this…

It’s also going to be a white Christmas.

Space Litter


CjonesRGB11242021

It’s been a big year for missile tests by U.S. rivals. China test-fired a hypersonic missile that went around the planet. Hypersonic is Mach 5 speed. That’s fast. Russia test-fired a missile in the Arctic. And last week, Russia test-fired a missile in space. Yes, in outer space.

Kids, we spend over $700 billion a year on our military which is more than the next top-ten spending nations combined. So, why are we behind China and Russia in hypersonic missile technology? We spend nearly $4 billion a year on hypersonic missiles that don’t work. How about we spend more money on feeding poor kids and free college and less on military shit that doesn’t work? We could probably put new dog parks in every U.S. city with $4 billion. And I bet dogs would be better at intercepting Chinese missiles than Space Force. I base this on a kung pao Chicken-Beagle interception incident I experienced once.

At this point, our anti-missile missiles have as much of a chance at intercepting a hypersonic missile as Donald Trump has of returning a serve by Serena Williams.

It’s the Russian missile test in space that really has everyone’s dander flaking. Russia blew up one of their own satellites which created a lot of debris in space.

Space debris is a huge problem for spacecraft like the International space station (ISS). The United States Space Surveillance Network is tracking about 20,000 pieces of artificial objects in space. While over 2,200 of this are satellites, the rest is junk from former space missions. It includes pieces of satellites, rockets, boosters, spacecraft, other assorted particles, and even solidified liquids from orbital spacecraft. This stuff can be dangerous to the humans flying around in space, like those on the ISS. A piece of space crap can destroy solar panels, and that’s just for starters. Space junk, in addition to dubstep, may be why aliens never come here.

The over 2,200 artificial objects we are sure about are only the objects large enough to track. Space nerds estimate there are over 128 million pieces of particles orbiting Earth that are from one to ten centimeters in size. Yes, something that small can inflict heavy damage. In case you’re a Republican gun humper and you need a comparison to understand how tiny a centimeter can be, look in your pants.

After the Russians blew up their satellite, the crew of the ISS had to scramble into capsules in case they had to evacuate the station.

The ISS orbits the planet at an altitude of 260 miles. So, if the space billionaire assholes (Jeff Bezos, Richard Branson, and Elon Musk) and their egos had been in space during the Russian missile test, they would NOT have been in any danger. Richard Branson got about 52 miles above the planet and Jeff Bezos reached 62. In case you’re a Republican, 260 is a greater amount than 52 and even 62.

This billionaire asshole space race is only to feed billionaire asshole egos, just like the Space Force was only created to placate Billionaire asshole Donald Trump’s ego and to give his racist rally attendees a new catchphrase (this was before they came up with “hang Mike Pence”). What did Space Force do to prevent the Russian missile test? It may have encouraged it.

There is an international treaty that forbids testing missiles in space. It bans nations from claiming the moon and other celestial bodies and forbids military stations in space, like the Death Star. While it doesn’t ban all military activity, creating an entire branch of your military that’s exclusively devoted to space kinda pokes the other 110 signers of the treaty in the eye. However, it’s not like Russia has respected the treaty before the creation of the Space Force. It should be noted that it was the Soviet Union that signed the treaty and not Russia.

But if Russia needs something to shoot down in space, I can think of better targets than satellites. And hey, before you get upset and believe I’m advocating killing billionaire assholes, just think of this like Paul Gosar thinks of his violent and racist anime. It’s just a cartoon.

There’s a lot of crap in space, including billionaire asshole egos.

Roughs, Volume 116


It’s time for roughs.

Rough1474

Obviously, this was drawn before the verdict. I kinda wish I had drawn it. I did draw a cartoon of Kyle crying on the witness stand, but it didn’t have a comparison to Brett Kavanaugh or crocodile tears. Those were two things I knew other cartoonists were going to do.

Rough1480

This was for the CNN newsletter. I had actually done a cartoon about six months ago with Republicans burning Liz Cheney at the stake with one of them against it saying, “Have you seen today’s gas prices?” I forgot about that and my proofer Laura found it. I’m not worried about it but if I had remembered, I probably wouldn’t have done this cartoon. Remember a cartoon six months ago? I can’t even what I ate this morning.

Rough1479

I didn’t go with this cartoon but I like the point in it. The last time we had extremely high gas prices was in 2008 during Bush’s last year. I remember the economy being so bad that there were a lot of things to blame Bush for. Gas prices will go down again, and President Biden won’t have much to do with it. Gas prices aren’t partisan. They hit presidents of both parties…and every leader worldwide.

Rough1478

This one became a real cartoon. I wanted to do something about inflation. Anytime I draw a cartoon somewhat critical of Biden, it doesn’t do well on social media. At least not with my audience. And the right always forgets I did it, claiming I need to hit a Democrat while never excoriating a conservative cartoonist to hit Trump. And in this cartoon, I’m not blaming President Biden for inflation. I’m just having fun with the current situation because him being blamed is the truth…even though the blame isn’t based on the truth.

Rough1477

The only thing wrong with this cartoon, other than it’s not really good, is that only the hyper-partisan are aware the Asian-joke-cracking racist judge of the Rittenhouse trial has Lee Greenwood’s god-awful “God Bless the USA” song as his ringtone. The song was used at every Trump Rally since Trump rallies began. And why did the judge even take his phone inside the courtroom? He wants everyone else to respect the process but Judge Jackass gets to bring his phone into the room? Is he playing Pokemon Go on it, or was he just virtue signaling?

Was the judge telling us he loves Trump or just loves crap music? I should write a song about America, freedom, bald eagles, Chevy trucks, baseball, and apple pie, and if anyone doesn’t like it, say they hate America.

Rough1476

I didn’t like this one so much. Also, it had a short shelf life. However, I really do want to draw a pelican. Keep your eyes open for that.

Rough1475

I felt I had neglected the infrastructure (like Trump did for four years), so I knew I needed something on it. I thought this was good enough. I like making points that Republicans won’t get. I also like drawing cartoons the Lets-Go-Brandon crowd won’t understand.

Rough1473

This one started out with just Climate Change and Critical Race Theory. Then I knew I needed to include the fictional War on Christmas. This one became a real cartoon.

Tell me what your favorites are.

Happy Hunting


CjonesRGB11232021

Trumpers, conservatives, gun humpers, and other assorted vile petulant creatures are all hailing the not-guilty verdict the Kenosha jury handed down on Kyle Rittenhouse. No, these fucknuts only want Kyle as a hero in their culture war. For them, it’s owning the libs. They don’t care about Kyle any more than they care whether or not Donald Trump wears an extra-absorbent man diaper or that during his colonoscopy, they found Amelia Earhart.

Kyle Rittenhouse is not innocent. He was found not guilty by a jury with very tight rules overseen by a racist Trumper judge who has Trump’s theme song as his ring tone. He was found not guilty after a trial where the judge wouldn’t allow the prosecution much of anything.

Mark Richards, one of Rittenhouse’s attorneys, told the press after the verdict that he wouldn’t have taken the job if it was to aid in a culture. Yet, the money he collected is from a defense fund filled with donations from MAGAts.

Kyle’s mom complained about President Biden insinuating her son is a white supremacist. Fortunately for her, the judge wouldn’t allow the prosecution to enter into evidence photos of underage Kyle hanging out in a bar with the proud boys wearing a “free as fuck” shirt and flashing the white power sign.

The jury got to hear about humanitarian Kyle who only wanted to clean graffiti with an AR-15.

The defense tells us he’s traumatized, can’t sleep, and suffers from PTSD. But, he didn’t look like he was suffering while flashing the white power sign with his white nationalist beer buddies. The photo was taken between the time of the shooting and the time of the trial.

Now in Wisconsin, you are free to kill people you disagree with if you believe it is self-defense. Wisconsin can be tough if you break their laws, except teens breaking curfew and illegally possessing guns.

Kyle’s lawyer said all his client wants now is anonymity, peace, and to be left alone. But, he’s also done an interview with Tucker Carlson and will be on his show again in a couple of days. His mom is still asking for money for his defense fund which has close to $500,000 in it at this time.

Let’s not forget how this began, over cops shooting a black man in the back. Conservatives are rejoicing that a little racist fuck got to kill and maim people protesting against cops killing black people. They got what they wanted. And it will happen again and again.

Kyle is not the victim here. You don’t create a situation you need self-defense from.

Welcome to America. No justice. No peace.

Qanon Shaman Ding Dong


CjonesRGB11212021

Jacob Chansley, the Qanon Shaman, was just handed 41 months in prison for his involvement with the white nationalist insurrection that Donald Trump ordered to overturn an election he lost and install him as a fascist dictator.

You remember Jacob Chansley (who also goes by the name Jake Angeli and Jake From State Farm). He was the guy with a two-tailed raccoon ass with horns on his head, had painted his face, ran through the Capitol howling, and despite Trump cultists saying nobody was armed, he was armed with a very large spear.

Jake got into the Senate chamber and left a note on the desk where just minutes before, Vice-President (sic) Mike Pence had just stood overseeing the certification of the election he and his savior, Trump, had just lost. The note was a threat that the Trump Cult was coming for him. Don’t forget, these “unarmed” Trumpsters were going through the Capitol with nooses while chanting “hang Mike Pence.”

I got this cartoon idea when the sentence came down. I soon saw a colleague’s cartoon on it with a remorseful Trump caring about Jacob. I thought, “No. That’s not right. Trump doesn’t care about Jacob or anyone who’s not Trump.”

Trump doesn’t care about the people who broke laws for him. During his 2016 rallies, he promised to pay legal fees for any member of his cult who punched a protester. It may be the first time a future president (sic) encouraged his base to assault people and break the law. Trump is probably also the first president (sic) to ask his base to break the law. He’s definitely the first one to ask them to commit a coup attempt and overturn an election.

Fun fact: Donald Trump never paid for any of his supporters’ legal fees, even after they did as he asked, punch a protester. And, he’s not paying any legal fees for the 695 people who have been charged in connection with the coup attempt, even though he called them out to do it.

He tweeted for them to come to the capital on January 6. He said it was “going to be wild.” He threw a little rally and told them to “walk to the Capitol” and “I’ll be right there with you.” He wasn’t “right there” with them. He went back to the White House to watch the mayhem from his extra-wide Barcalounger.

Jacob Chansley pleaded guilty to felony obstruction of an official proceeding in connection with the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. When his lawyer was asked what “appropriate accountability” for Trump would look like, he said, “I’d tell him, ‘You know what? You’ve got a few fucking things to do. Including clearing this fucking mess up and taking care of a lot of the jackasses that you fucked up because of January 6.'”

He sounds angry.

No, Donald Trump will not clear the “fucking mess” up. Nor will he “take care of the jackasses” he “fucked up.” Donald Trump only cares about one person. Guess who that is. Time’s up. It’s Donald Trump.

Donald Trump doesn’t return loyalty. You don’t have to take the word of the people closest to Trump who verifiy this. You can just look at his past actions. Look at Michael Cohen. Trump bailed on him after decades of loyalty.

The only reason Trump ever pardoned anyone was to shut them up. I mean, it’s not Russia where you can throw them off a building. But, pardoning also keeps their loyalty. Trump was mad at Steve Bannon, then he pardoned Bannon, and then Bannon helped plan the insurrection. If you want a true example of Trump’s loyalty, just look at Jeff Sessions.

Donald Trump doesn’t care about anyone, just like he doesn’t care about this country. Donald Trump only wanted, and wants now, to be president, not because of what he could for the country, but more for what he could do to the country. And, for what being president could do for himself.

Jacob Chansley will be sitting in jail eating organic jail food the judge approved for a long time. Donald Trump will be playing a lot of golf for a long time.
I don’t think Donald Trump even knows the name “Jacob Chansley.”

Creative note: I’ve drawn quite a few cartoons of Trump playing golf. So what I do now is when I draw another Trump/Golf cartoon, I don’t look at the previous cartoons. I don’t want them all to look the same but they still all look kind of the same.

Imaginary Republicans


CjonesRGB11202021

Last week, racist Arizona Republican congressman Paul Gosar tweeted out an animé video of violence being committed against his colleague, Democratic female representative Alexandria Ocasio Cortez. The animé also included some violent stuff happening to President Joe Biden. Just as Republicans loved to say during the Trump presidency (sic), Where did the nice nonwhite lady hurt you?

Yesterday, the House voted to censure Gosar. But first, his Republican colleagues got an opportunity to defend Gosar. Matt Gaetz equated being upset at the violence in the cartoon to what Wile E. Coyote attempts to do to the Road Runner. Gaetz said, “Next week we might be indicting the Wile E. Coyote for an explosive ordinance against the Road Runner.”

First off, Matt-boo…nobody should ever listen to you for what’s OK and not OK. You show your colleagues on the House floor photos of girls you slept with by enticing them with candy from your van, you’re currently under investigation for sex trafficking a minor, you’re a racist stupid cult-worshipping fuck who spreads lies and conspiracy theories, dresses poorly, and has ridiculous hair that looks like it has to be combed over an oil pan.

But, Gosar has NOT been indicted, so maybe somebody should tell Matt the differences between “censure” and “indictment.” Maybe some nice FBI agents can inform him while arresting him when their investigation is completed. Or, maybe Gaetz does know and it was a faux pas because “indictment” has been on his mind lately.

Also, I hate to break it to Matt but Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner aren’t real people, so your comparison is almost as stupid as your hair (my God, man…what are you putting in that shit, axle grease?). But it does make sense he thinks Wile E. Coyote is real as other Republicans are feuding with Muppets.

Gosar never did apologize for the animé and defended it saying he used anime to connect with young people. Hey, that’s a good idea when you want to entice teenagers into the KKK, use anime. Gosar pulled the video the same day he tweeted it. After he was censured yesterday, he tweeted it again.

He’s lucky he’s a congressman and not in the real world. If you put funny little cartoons about killing your coworker on her desk, you would probably lose your job for harassment. You probably wouldn’t have a bunch of your colleagues defending you with Wile E. Coyote comparisons.

Gosar is only the 24th person to be censured by Congress, the first in over a decade, and he lost two committee assignments. Basically, he’s as worthless as Marjorie Taylor Green, a person even Oscar the Grouch wouldn’t wanna be seen with. Green wasn’t censured but did lose her committee assignments which she said would give her more time for trolling with racist bullshit and conspiracy theories. It warms one’s heart to see a person reconnect with their Nazi base.

Personally, I believe every member of Congress who supported the insurrection, tries to prevent it from being investigated, and continues to spread lies that Trump won, should be censured. And maybe like Gaetz mentioned, indicted.

At the very least, they should all have to spend one night in a jail cell with a horny Snuffleupagus.

Empty Shelves Empty Logic


cjonesRGB11192021

Not only did Donald Trump fail to pass an infrastructure bill while he was in office, but he also tried to block President Biden’s infrastructure bill after he left office. Biden used the tactic of appealing to bipartisanship. Trump used the politics of slash-and-burn. Hey, which one worked?

Passing the infrastructure bill is a huge success for the president, especially to achieve it with bipartisan support in this hostile climate Donald Trump created. Donald Trump worked to destroy the nation while he was in office, and he’s continuing to destroy this nation out of office.

Biden did this with the support of 13 House and 19 Senate Republicans. Trump is screaming and howling that the bill is a victory for Biden and Democrats, and he’s placing most of the blame on Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Of McConnell, Trump said, “Based on the fact that the Old Crow convinced many Republican Senators to vote for the Bill, greatly jeopardizing their chance of winning re-election, and that he led the way, he should go to the signing and put up with the scorn from Great Republican Patriots that are already lambasting him.”

Patriots don’t support insurrections and McConnell, the “old crow,” is only four years older than Trump. But, did you see what Trump did there? He’s upset this helps Democrats politically, showing he’s putting politics before the country.

When Trump ran in 2016, he promised to deliver a huge infrastructure package that would be larger than any infrastructure funding his opponent, Hillary Clinton, could deliver. Somehow, I think Clinton could have delivered more than zero. While Trump claims the Biden infrastructure deal spends only 11 percent of it on “actual” infrastructure, Trump’s deal that never happened delivered zero percent of nothing to “actual” infrastructure.

Trump never delivered on his promise of passing an infrastructure bill. He had four years, two with a House and Senate fully controlled by Republicans. But even if he had tried in his last two years, he could have gotten it done with support from Democrats despite him being a feeble orange moron.

During the campaign, Trump promised a $1 trillion infrastructure bill. Just like everything else he campaigned on, he never explained how he’d pay for it. After Putin inserted him into the White House, Trump raised the bullshit and said he was going for a $2 trillion package and again, never explained how he’d pay for it. He once said private corporations would do all the funding, but never explained how corporations who don’t pay taxes would generously volunteer to hand the government $2 trillion to repair shit they don’t care about. If anything, those corporations were too busy putting the tax cuts Trump gave them back into their own companies’ stocks and offshore bank accounts than to donate any of it back to the government. Corporations do transport their goods over the infrastructure, but they’d rather you and I pay for it. You know, like they’d rather we make up for the crap salaries they pay their employees by providing them with welfare.

Donald Trump displayed an amazing ignorance over how government funding and debt work. He never understood that the tariffs he raised were paid by American consumers. Instead of Mexico paying for the wall as he promised, he stole the money from one government agency and gave it to another. In case you haven’t noticed, Mexico still hasn’t paid for the wall.

Now, the Republicans who didn’t vote for the infrastructure bill are screaming about the supply-chain crisis. Fun fact: The infrastructure bill they voted against includes $17 billion for infrastructure improvements at coastal and inland ports, waterways, and ports of entry along the U.S. border. But don’t worry. There are Republicans who voted against the bill who are also taking credit for it. It’s kinda like all those Republicans who voted over 50 times to destroy Obamacare without a single one of them offering a replacement and then ran in the 2018 midterms on their support and love of Obamacare. They swore their lives to defend Obamacare. Do you remember that? Good news, shitweasels. You don’t have to remember it because I will keep reminding you.

Hey, remember that time you ran on your love for Obamacare after trying to kill it over 50 times? Ah, good times.

Another fun fact: Republicans are racist gaslighting hypocritical ass-kissing liars.

Since Republicans don’t get hypocrisy, I’ll give them an example: Complaining about the supply-chain crisis then voting against efforts to improve it is hypocritical. I’m starting to think Republicans don’t hate Critical Race Theory as much as they hate basic economics, because they didn’t study that either.

When President Obama inherited the shitty economy George W. Bush left him, Republicans were blaming Obama for the economy he inherited. They also went after him in his first year for high gas prices. This is another thing they don’t remember. President Obama inherited shit and the GOP blamed him for it. Then, when President Obama improved the economy, greatly, Republicans adopted the talking point “slowest economic recovery ever,” forgetting why we needed an economic recovery in the first place.

Psst….Republicans, two wars funded by tax cuts for billionaire assholes had a lot to do with it. Republicans were literally complaining a Democrat wasn’t cleaning up the mess they created fast enough. They knew it had to be repaired before they could fuck it all up again. And that’s exactly what they did.

When Trump came into office with the help of Russian meddlers, he inherited an economy created by his predecessor, the black guy. Even before Trump came into office, he took credit for the amazing economy. Republicans went from “slowest economic recovery ever” to an “economic miracle.” And then Trump gave billionaire assholes, including himself, tax cuts. There was never an infrastructure bill from Trump, but we celebrated Infrastructure Week four times. Infrastructure Week, like Trump himself, became a running joke in Washington.

Then, covid hit, and the unemployment rate hit 14.8 percent, the highest rate ever recorded since they started recording these things. So basically, Donald Trump is responsible for the highest unemployment rate EVER. And you still think the election was stolen? Also take note that the economy President Obama built was so great that it took the orange turd three years to destroy it.

And of course, now, Republicans are screaming that President Biden isn’t cleaning up Trump’s mess fast enough. And when it starts recovering, they’ll start calling it the “slowest economic recover ever,” forgetting why we need an economic recovery. But all this shit you’re screaming about, high gas prices, inflation, the supply-chain crisis, were all created by Donald Trump and the party that turned into a cult for him.

Republicans have very bad memories and unfortunately, so do voters.

But I don’t and I will keep reminding you.

Another Border Crisis


CjonesRGB11182021

If the first thing you were concerned over upon hearing about the migration crisis on the border between Belarus and Poland, then your priorities are messed up. Oil before humanity, right?

This crisis began over the summer when Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko threatened to bring in human traffickers, drug smugglers, and armed migrants into his nation to cross into European Union nations. Democratic nations in the west have been at odds with Lukashenko over his fraudulent election (the kind Trump hopes for), the crackdown against protesters, the forced-landing of Ryanair 4978 to capture a Lukashenko critic, and the attempted forced repatriation of Belarusian Olympic sprinter Krystsina Tsimanouskaya.

Lukashenko started advertising in Asia and Africa that people who needed to flee their home nations were welcome to pass through Belarus (nobody wants to immigrate to Belarus. Ask Krystsina) and into western Europe. Airlines in the Middle East increased their flights to Belarus, offered discounts and Belarusian visas. Several social media pages started providing false information on how to cross over the border from Belarus and into Poland.

After the immigrants arrived in Belarus, they were provided with axes and wire cutters to cross the border. When they arrived at the border, they discovered Poland didn’t want them and turned them around and back in to Belarus, although about 800 were able to pass through by evading authorities. For those who were not able to pass through, Belarus prevented Poland from providing the refugees with tents and blankets. As an incentive for the migrants to try again to enter Poland, Belarusian soldiers started beating them.

This is kinda like the Mariel Boatlift in 1980 when Fidel Castro “humanely” allowed Cubans to leave and paddle the 90 or miles to the United States. Among the 125,000 Cubans, and 25,000 Haitians who pretended to be Cubans (Reagan would only take Cubans, not Haitians), were some of the worst criminals Cuba had to offer. Most of the people Castro considered criminals were guilty of stuff like selling radios on the black market (here in the U.S, it’s more of an assault to force somebody to listen to pop radio). But the media in southern Florida identified at least 2,700 as “hardened” criminals. We’re talking Scarface here. This is what Lukashenko is hoping to do to the EU…give them Scarface. Lukashenko is a cockaroach.

The nations that border Belarus, Poland, Lithuania, and Latvia, have accused Lukashenko of using the migrants as weapons to attack the European Union. Most of these immigrants are trying to get to Germany, where people are civil. In Poland and Belarus, the people are more like Trumpers. In fact, the three border nations have decided to build a wall on the border with Belarus with the European Union’s support.

Belarus and Lukashenko suck, but Poland sucks too. Poland has refused asylum to immigrants who have entered its nation. They’ve also refused access to the media, doctors, and non-government organizations like the Red Cross. Yesterday, Polish border guards shot tear gas and water cannons at the migrants. Apparently, Poland has made Stephen Miller their new border czar.

Lukashenko is a monster and the true victims here are the refugees he created in order to use them as weapons. Here in the United States, we may not pay much attention to it since it’s not in the United States. And if gas prices do increase because of this, as Lukashenko may shut off pipelines from Russia to the European Union, we’ll probably blame President Biden.

The real victims in this aren’t the people paying higher gas prices, but the refugees being weaponized. And if your first concern was your gas tank, you need to check your heart and your head, because you’re a cockaroach.

Looking For Trouble


CjonesRGB11172021

The entire legal defense for Kyle Rittenhouse is that he shot three people, killing two, in self-defense. But there’s a funny thing about looking for trouble. Usually, when you look for trouble, you find it.

Kyle Rittenhouse went looking for trouble. He crossed states to a city he didn’t live in, went to a friend’s house in that city to pick up an AR-15 his friend bought for him because Rittenhouse was too young to purchase it at that time, then went to an anti-racism protest. At that protest, he wandered off from all the other racist gun humpers and shot three people.

Before Kyle “defended himself,” he skulked around with the other gun-wielding self-appointed vigilantes and told big fat chunky lies.

It’s always been my opinion that if you have to lie to support your position, then you’re on the wrong side or doing the wrong thing. For example, if you lie to your mother and say you’re going to your friend’s house to study but in reality, you’re going to a rave to do pantless keg stands, then you’re probably doing the wrong thing. And if you’re lying about your age and qualifications, then you’re probably doing the wrong thing.

Kyle told everyone near him that cheery Kenosha night that he was 18-years-old. He was 17. Hey, that lie worked at the Proud Boy Bar, so why not to join the Kenosha vigilante Nazi goon squad? But, it turns out he didn’t have to lie about his age as the judge in his trial has dropped the charges of being an underage gun-carrying racist juvenile out after his bedtime.

Question: When Kyle lied and told everyone he was 18, did he have to turn in his Hitler Youth card?

The judge has dropped the charges against Kyle for a minor possessing a gun. The argument is that the gun is also underage. No, but seriously…I’m shocked they didn’t do that. Really, the judge dropped that charge because the law in Wisconsin isn’t clear on the barrel length for it to be illegal for a juvenile racist to possess. I’m glad it’s not a rape trial as this judge might drop all charges based on penis length.

He also dropped the breaking curfew charge because there wasn’t enough evidence. Sure, it’s a technicality, and there really isn’t enough evidence beyond the video, witnesses who saw him, including the cops who gave him bottles of water and waved him by after he shot people, and oh yeah, the shooting of people.

I think the curfew thing is very important. Why? Because if Kyle Rittenhouse wasn’t where he wasn’t supposed to be at the time he wasn’t supposed to be there, two people would still be alive and nobody would have been shot.

Also, if Kyle didn’t possess what he wasn’t legally allowed to possess, then he wouldn’t have shot anyone.

Kyle’s other juicy whopper was his qualification to be there. He claimed he is EMT certified and there to protect car lots and give medical attention. He’s not even old enough to be EMT certified. Fun fact: Kyle didn’t give medical attention to any of the people he shot. including the one he shot, in self-defense, four times.

Kyle is a lifeguard but unfortunately, nobody was drowning in Kenosha that night.

The prosecution may be drowning though. And I kinda expect Kyle to get off. In my last column, I made a bunch of predictions about Kyle’s future if he gets off. I have a new one.

The Kyle Rittenhouse we’ve seen in this trial, the sweet cherub humanitarian who is so concerned about the community he doesn’t live in and generous enough to loan his bulletproof vest to a friend, will not be the Kyle we see after the trial, if he gets off.

The Kyle we’ll see after the trial will be an arrogant smug little self-entitled prick who hangs out in bars with Proud Boys. That’s also the Kyle we saw before the trial.

And who knows, if the self-defense argument works after looking for trouble, Kyle may go to another protest and shoot more people. Hell, if Kyle gets off, it’s a green light to racist gun humpers to shoot anti-racism protesters throughout Wisconsin. It’ll be legal in Wisconsin just like it’s legal in Florida to shoot a black guy in a hoodie with Skittles approaching you.

Kyle Rittenhouse may be freed, and we need to prepare ourselves for that. More importantly, we need to prepare ourselves for the aftermath.
