While CNN rushed to create a "White Supremacist" narrative immediately after the shooting took place, the network continued to prop the same story even after the facts of the case were made public.
Surprisingly, the white supremacist narrative didn't make sense considering the deceased were both white. However, CNN had one more trick up its sleeve. The news network attempted to paint Huber and Grosskreutz as very nice men who tried to save others from a murderous extremist.
"Anthony Huber was armed with nothing but his skateboard when he spotted an armed person among a crowded street in Kenosha, Wisconsin, but he still ran toward the danger," CNN reported.
A quick look at 2018 crime statistics shows that 3.5% of murder victims died from attacks associated with non-weapons, such as skateboards, beer bottles, among others.
Additionally, the circumstances under which Huber used the skateboard show that he was using it as a weapon to neutralize Rittenhouse so that he could take his gun. Huber used the skateboard to pound on Rittenhouse's head, forcing him to act in self-defense.
Because of his long history of domestic abuse, Huber could not potentially qualify to own a firearm. For him, the skateboard was the best weapon he could afford. Additionally, given his criminal record, trying to touch a gun was illegal in itself. The fact that he couldn't legally own a firearm means taking someone else's was the only way to acquire one.
For Grosskreutz, there is no argument that he was armed. Being on the receiving end of an armed attacker while another one was cracking his head and trying to grab his weapon proves that Rittenhouse had no other option but to act in self-defense.
Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is pushing universal background checks in our state, and if left unchecked, it will not be long until we see bills like this getting traction in Austin. Texas is embarrassingly ranked 29th for gun rights, and with the help of the political elites in Austin, we will surely rank among New York, California, and Illinois if left to their own devices. Please join our fight today, and help us restore Texas' place as the standard for the U.S.
