    A week later, and the mealy-mouthed assholes are still at it. If it wasn't for the fact that the corporate media are so lacking in self-awareness, one would be forced to conclude that they are doing it on purpose. https://twitter.com/CNN/status/1465028734453493764

    Speaking of which (h/t Peter Boghossian): Universities Try to Force a Consensus About Kyle Rittenhouse https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2021/11/universities-forced-consensus-kyle-rittenhouse/620809/ Conor Friedersdorf (26 November 2021) At universities, the recent acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse should be an opportunity to study a divisive case that sparked complex debates about issues as varied as self-defense laws, guns, race, riots, the rights of defendants, prosecutorial missteps, media bias, and more. If administrators were doing their jobs, faculty and students would freely air a wide variety of viewpoints and have opportunities to better understand one another’s diverse perspectives. Instead, many administrators are preemptively imposing their preferred narratives. The Rittenhouse saga began in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on August 25, amid rioting that followed the police shooting of a Black man. Rittenhouse, then 17, armed himself with an AR-15-style rifle and walked into the chaos, claiming that he intended to protect the community. He wound up shooting three men, killing two. Last week, a Wisconsin jury found him not guilty of murder, crediting his claim that, at the moment he fired, he feared for his life and acted in self-defense. This, many analysts argued, was a plausible conclusion to draw from Wisconsin law and video footage and testimony presented at trial.

    Regardless of what one thinks about what happened on "1/6" (or what should be done about it), the mind can only boggle at the bizarre irrationality of invoking such a grotesquely irrelevant non sequitur. This makes Pee-wee Herman's "I know you are, but what am I?" look like the epitome of well-reasoned rebuttals. And yet, there are a lot of people who will actually regard and accept this as an adequate and even telling rejoinder.

    Yeah, no. Just no. People should continue to pay attention to (and post about) the Rittenhouse affair for just as long as it continues to engage or interest them (however long that might be), and not for one moment less. I don't agree. People are able to walk and chew gum at the same time, and they are able to pay attention to more than one story at once, as well. At any given moment, there is more than just one important/significant thing going on in the world.

    The @libsoftiktok account has posted the same sort of thing from a lot of other companies, too (such as Best Buy and Kaiser Permanente.) It's another symptom of the "woke" takeover of corporate HR departments - and they don't even need the endorsements of the CEOs or board members, either (most of those people wouldn't have the spine to stand up to them anyway, even if they did have objections). And the same Twitter account covered a lot of colleges/universities cranking out the same kind of guff (turned up to eleven) in the wake of the Rittenhouse veridct: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?552730-Postcards-from-the-Clown-Show&p=7074000&viewfull=1#post7074000

    All of the following is under an "if I understand correctly" qualifier: I think it depends on the scope of the particular pardon. If Benton was pardoned specifically and only for offenses that he had already been charged with or convicted of, then new charges on other offenses would still be permitted by the pardon. But if Benton got a partial "blanket" pardon for some of the things he might have done prior to the issuance of the pardon, then new charges might not be permitted. Or if Benton got a full "blanket" pardon for anything he might have done prior to the issuance of the pardon, then new charges would not be permitted. So on the basis of this new indictment against Benton, I'm guessing that his earlier pardon must not have been a "blanket" pardon (or if it was, it must have been a partial "blanket" and not a full one). Recall that when Nixon was pardoned by Ford, Nixon hadn't even been charged with - let alone convicted of - anything at all. So it is clearly possible to pardon someone for something for which they merely might be charged or convicted, rather than just something for which they already have been charged or convicted. If Assange or Snowden were to be granted full "blanket" pardons, then I don't see what the Feds/DoJ could do about it, other than ignoring the rules or cheating (which, of course, can't be ruled out). Also important to note is that presidential pardons only cover federal matters. States are not bound by them, and presidents cannot pardon (preemptively or otherwise) for state-level offenses.

    The Cynical and Dangerous Weaponization of the "White Supremacist" Label In dominant elite discourse, no evidence is needed to brand someone a "white supremacist." The belief that it will produce political or personal gain suffices. Glenn Greenwald (27 November 2021) Within hours of the August 25, 2020, shootings in Kenosha, Wisconsin — not days, but hours — it was decreed as unquestioned fact in mainstream political and media circles that the shooter, Kyle Rittenhouse, was a "white supremacist.” Over the next fifteen months, up to and including his acquittal by a jury of his peers on all charges, this label was applied to him more times than one can count by corporate media outlets as though it were proven fact. Indeed, that Rittenhouse was a "white supremacist” was deemed so unquestionably true that questioning it was cast as evidence of one's own racist inclinations (defending a white supremacist). Yet all along, there was never any substantial evidence, let alone convincing proof, that it was true. This fact is, or at least should be, an extraordinary, even scandalous, event: a 17-year-old was widely vilified as being a white supremacist by a union of national media and major politicians despite there being no evidence to support the accusation. Yet it took his acquittal by a jury who heard all the evidence and testimony for parts of the corporate press to finally summon the courage to point out that what had been Gospel about Rittenhouse for the last fifteen months was, in fact, utterly baseless. A Washington Post news article was published late last week that was designed to chide "both sides” for exploiting the Rittenhouse case for their own purposes while failing to adhere carefully to actual facts. Ever since the shootings in Kenosha, they lamented, "Kyle Rittenhouse has been a human canvas onto which the nation’s political divisions were mapped.” In attempting to set the record straight, the Post article contained this amazing admission:

    I'm aware of the right of citizen's arrest- but looking inside a unfinished building structure, which most of us have done, is questionable grounds for stalking someone. Plus, if tools are actually being stolen, then any smart person would make sure stuff was locked up & safe.

    That can be determined as "stalking". "The crime of stalking can be simply described as the unwanted pursuit of another person." Also, if 3 black guys were following you in their trucks would you just calmly stand there & ask them what they wanted or would you take off & try to get out of sight?
