I am not sure how liberals expected the Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial to go. Anyone who had seen the videos of Rittenhouse’s interactions with the men who were chasing him, striking him and trying to kill him knew that he had a strong case of self-defense. But apparently the fact that Rittenhouse has a defense–and is so bold as to assert it!–came as a surprise to the Left.

RITTENHOUSE TRIAL BRINGS OUT THE CRAZY
[I don’t think it’s “surprise”. I think it’s indignation. It’s all about political currency. Violence is the political currency of the left. Non-leftists should stay in their lane and rely on the police. And since they had essentially neutered the police during this “summer of love” they expected, nay, they deserved an open field of operation. Someone dares to put out a fire they started? That is intolerable and must be punished. That Rittenhouse didn’t accept his well deserved beating was a gross violation of their expected rules of engagement. He had to guilty of something. He shouldn’t have even been there.—Joe]
It also indicated they didn’t have the full control of the courts that they desire.
Not yet, not everywhere. But make no mistake, they are working on that.
They spent too much of Soros’ money on placing left-leaning prosecutors, whose main job is to avoid prosecuting looters, rioters, and other felons who prop up the left’s causes. When he actually was forced (politically) to prosecute a case, his lack of practice and lame expertise were put on display for everyone to see.
“Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views.”
–William F. Buckley
Leftists were surprised because they live in a very thick bubble that is armored against reality.
