Lib News Host Admits She Bought The Spin Against Rittenhouse, Hook Line And Sinker
The Young Turks is by far one of the most extreme left news agencies (If we are calling them that). You never hear them correct an error or report a single Democrat in a bad light so I was supprised to see host Ana Kasparian, admit she bought the big lie on Kyle Rittenhouse.
Rittenhouse was a medically trained teen who rushed to Wisonsin last summer as riots broke out following a police involved shooting. The media spun Rittenhouse as an agressor because the teen was armed but the teen clearly tried to avoid altercations. Footage released last year showed Rittenhouse running from an angry mob at several differnt points.
In fact, the teen only fired shots after hearing someone else open fire as he ran away.
How did The Young Turks report it? Like Rittenhouse was a deranged, racist, vigilantee which is pretty much the narrative the left was selling at the time. Kasparian says she bought that narrative but after reviewing the footage she realizes, she was wrong:
“I was wrong about that, okay, so I want to correct the record,” Kasparian said on her news show. “Look, these details matter, because if you’re going to make an argument that you acted in self-defense, there needs to be some proof that there was an imminent threat.”
Rittenhouse’s defense team is arguing the teen was acting in self-defense on August 25, 2020, when he fatally shot two rioters and injured a third.
“Now, what really mattered to me was how all of this unfolded,” she explained. “What was the thing that sparked it, what started all of it. And, initially, I was under the assumption that Rittenhouse was the person who was chasing after Joseph Rosenbaum — that’s how it started. But I was wrong about that.”
“I was in fact wrong about that, and to show you the evidence to reinforce that I was wrong about that, I want to go to this video.”
Kasparian then showed video of a combative Rosenbaum shouting “shoot me” before chasing after an unsuspecting Rittenhouse. As Rosenbaum gains on Rittenhouse and throws a bag filled with his belongings from his hospital stay the night before, a third party fires off a gunshot. That’s when Rittenhouse turns and fires off four shots, fatally wounding Rosenbaum.
“So, those details matter, right? Who was chasing who matters, the gunshots by some other unidentified person, that matters, especially if you’re Rittenhouse and you’re running away, and then you hear shots and then Rosenbaum lunges toward him,” Kasparian sums up.
Rittenhouse's court case is currently on going. Today the young man took the stand in his own defense. His tearful testimony explained his altercation with Mr. Rosenbaum who had been released from the hospital for mental health issues earlier that night.
