“Kyle Rittenhouse, in an unusual move for a defendant, took the witness stand Wednesday. He cried. His defense team then made a motion for a mistrial with prejudice, which means Rittenhouse couldn’t be retried.” Who would have thought that, in a murder trial, a tearful moment on the witness stand was all one needed to get out of trouble? Issac Bailey, evidently – for that’s who wrote those words. But Mr. Baily’s astute analysis doesn’t end there. No, he weaves into his story martyrdom, systemic racism, and even those white voters who “were trying to defend their freedom, so they flocked to an open bigot like Donald Trump and stormed the U.S. Capitol.”
What began as a completely inaccurate portrayal of a highly politicized murder trial quickly devolved into an unhinged leftist rant truly worthy of a Leftist Lunacy lambasting by Liberty Nation. And what outlet published the work of this enraged editorialist? Not our old friend Salon. It was neither Slate nor Vox. No, it was NBC.
In his piece for the Peacock, which he titled “Kyle Rittenhouse sobbing shows what’s wrong with America,” Mr. Baily didn’t bother testing the waters of political bias; he jumped right off the deep end fully clothed, shoes and all. The previously quoted misrepresentation of how mistrials work was the first part of the opening paragraph. Concluding that intro was the absurd statement: “But whatever the court rules, he has already won.”
How much time and how many words could we devote to that...
