Corporate media brazenly demonizing white men in racist hit pieces following the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse.

Following the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse, CNN on Saturday published a foaming-at-the-mouth op-ed claiming that “nothing is more frightening” in America than an “angry White man.”
“There is nothing more frightening in America today than an angry White man,” wrote CNN’s John Blake.
“It’s not the ‘radical Islamic terrorist’ that I fear the most. Nor is it the brown immigrant or the fiery Black Lives Matter protester, or whatever the latest bogeyman is that some politician tells me I should dread.”
“It’s encountering an armed White man in public who has been inspired” by Rittenhouse and other white men who have been acquitted, he claimed.
Blake went on to explain that while most white men are “no menace to society,” he claimed that “White masculinity” is responsible for slavery, Jim Crow laws, and the January 6 Capitol protest.
This angry White man has been a major character throughout US history. He gave the country slavery, the slaughter of Native Americans, and Jim Crow laws. His anger also helped fuel the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol.
It’s this angry White man — not the Black or brown man you see approaching on the street at night — who poses the most dangerous threat to democracy in America.
That’s a sweeping claim. But these trials represent something bigger than questions of individual guilt or innocence. They offer a disturbing vision of the future and a choice about what kind of country we want to live in.
Blake then lamented that Rittenhouse’s acquittal could make it difficult to impose gun control laws on the American people.
“The conservative-leaning US Supreme Court now seems poised to make it easier for people to carry guns in public, based on recent oral arguments over a New York gun control law,” he wrote.
“The US’ civilian population is already the most heavily armed in the world. And our streets could soon become even more violent.”
He also falsely asserted that Rittenhouse went to Kenosha with ulterior motives to shoot rioters, and claimed that his acquittal also means no one will be punished for the January 6 protest (hundreds of participants are currently in a D.C. jail awaiting trial).
“While prosecutors didn’t show that Rittenhouse was angry that night, there is a perception — fair or not — that he went to Kenosha for reasons more than simply maintaining public safety,” Blake claimed.
“And finally, there’s a growing fear that no one will be severely punished for the January 6 insurrection because most of the rioters were white,” he wrote, suggesting the so-called “QAnon Shaman” named Jacob Chansley sentenced to 41 months in prison wasn’t nearly severe enough.
This isn’t the only openly racist hit piece to come from the corporate media following Rittenhouse’s acquittal.
MSNBC anchor Joy Reid’s “Reidout” blog put out an op-ed on Friday titled, “Kyle Rittenhouse trial was designed to protect white conservatives who kill.”
“Rittenhouse is a white teen who abides by white rules, and white people empathetic to those rules seemed poised to insulate him from repercussions,” wrote Ja’han Jones.
Until the corporate media is held accountable for fomenting racial strife and anger that leads to violence like the events in Kenosha, they will continue to divide and conquer until their Marxist agenda is fulfilled.
