MARTIN: And as we understand it, President Trump will not be visiting the family of - either Jacob Blake or his family. I want to ask about what the president has said about Kyle Rittenhouse. This is the 17-year-old suspected of shooting and killing two protesters in Kenosha. As we hear in our previous conversation, he said it appeared that Rittenhouse was, quote, "in very big trouble and probably would have been killed." There is no conclusive evidence to support that claim. But what do you believe to be the effects of those remarks?
No conclusive evidence except, ya know, the Glock pointed at his head. I guess the dimwits at NPR repeated this in a tweet because later I saw: "Taxpayer-Funded, Government-Sponsored NPR: Trump Claimed, "WITHOUT EVIDENCE," That Kyle Rittenhouse May Have Acted in Self Defense" and "NPR slammed over tweet that Trump claimed 'without evidence' that Kenosha gunman acted in self-defense."
But you needn't have looked any further than the double standard for "conclusive evidence" than the conclusion of the NPR article where this exchange occurred:
MARTIN: Just in seconds remaining, I want to ask about what Joe Biden said. He criticized President Trump for fomenting divisions, but he also said rioting is not protesting. And recent polls indicate that support for Black Lives Matter, especially among white people, is slipping because of the violence from protests in Kenosha. Do you think all this is taking a political toll on Democrats?BOWEN: Well, I think that there are white supremacists that are implanting themselves in these protests, and they are seeking to discredit the movement.
There is ZERO evidence that this is happening, much less "conclusive evidence." So NPR's Rachel Martin pushed back hard against this claim!
MARTIN: David Bowen - he's a Democratic state representative in Wisconsin and a member of Wisconsin's state Legislative Black Caucus. He joined us on Skype. Thank you so much for your time.
Just more gaslighting and narrative protection. Time to save some taxpayer money.
“Without evidence?” There’s video. And the President referenced the video.— Matt Whitlock (@mattdizwhitlock) September 1, 2020
