After 18 year-old Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted on all charges this month for his role in the Kenosha unrest, the woke mob is after him yet again. Left wing student activist groups issued a list of demands to the university, calling Rittenhouse a white supremacist and a “blood-thirsty murderer”. Radical student organization MEChA (Movimiento Estudiantil Chicanx de Aztlán) posted the demands, saying
“Even with a not-guilty verdict from a flawed ‘justice’ system – Kyle Rittenhouse is still guilty to his victims and the families of those victims. Join us to demand from ASU that these demands be met [and] to protect students from a violent, blood-thirsty murderer.”

The coalition of radical student organization has a list of other demands as well. Among them is a demand that the university condemns white supremacy and defunds the campus police. The group wants the funds to be redirected to the campus’ multicultural center.
ASU’s multicultural center has been the subject of controversy in the past, as white students were harassed and told they were not welcome there. In a viral incident, a left wing student activist can be heard saying “You’re making the space uncomfortable … You’re white. Do you understand what a multicultural space is? It means you’re not being centered,” while repeatedly telling them to leave.
Liberal politicians and pundits have lashed out at the Rittenhouse verdict. One MSNBC legal analyst and professor of law at Georgetown University called the trial “white supremacy on steroids” and that the verdict sent the message that “vigilante justice prevailed”. Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.) offered remarks on the trial, saying “The judge. The jury. The defendant. It’s white supremacy in action. This system isn’t built to hold white supremacists accountable.”
