Comedian, actress, and co-host of The View, Whoopi Goldberg, continued to lie on Monday about Kyle Rittenhouse and defame his good name, even after he was found Not Guilty of all five charges on Friday in a court of law by a jury of his peers.
Goldberg told her co-hosts that she believes Rittenhouse “murdered” two men, even though he only shot his rifle in self defense which is why the jury acquitted him. Even a co-host of The View should be able to recognize that there were rioters all around him that night and Rittenhouse onlt shot the three people who he thought were trying to kill him.
She said, “Let me show you what got me, the thing no one was really talking about, the father of Anthony Huber, one of the young man shot and killed by Rittenhouse, puts things into perspective for me at least and on CNN. Take a look.”
The confused co-host then played a clip of John Huber on CNN who said, “You know that guy gets to run free a now is a hero. This is my son right here. This is Anthony. We lost our son. And there’s no justice for our family and no closure. There wasn’t going justice in that Kenosha court with that judge.”
Goldberg continued, “He wasn’t doing anything. Was trying — he saw an active shooter. He saw someone get shot. He thought he was doing the right thing. So even all the excuses in the world does not change the fact that three people were shot. Two people were murdered. To me, it’s murder. I’m sorry. I’ll never forget that man.”
That’s a great story to tell, but it’s a fantasy. Huber had a serious criminal record. Wisconsin court records show that Huber was convicted of disorderly conduct in 2018 as a domestic abuse repeater. He was also cited for possessing drug paraphernalia.
The line the progressives are using that the criminals who attacked Rittenhouse thought he was an active shooter is complete nonsense. They were running around setting fires and smashing windows and causing mayhem.
Huber was found guilty of a felony for strangulation and suffocation, domestic abuse. He was convicted in that case of felony false imprisonment with a dangerous weapon, domestic abuse.
A charge of second-degree recklessly endangering safety was dismissed, as was a charge of battery and two charges of disorderly conduct. He was ordered not to possess weapons and no contact orders were issued. That’s some serious stuff.
Don’t forget, Huber used his skateboard as a weapon when he allegedly tried to bash Rittenhouse’s head in.
Co-host Sunny Hostin jumped in, saying, “He lost a son. Another family lost their son. What we are also seeing in this case is a lot of the victim character assassination that we do often see in the black community. I was surprised at that because Rittenhouse didn’t know the background of those guys.”
First off, it was Rittenhouse who was attacked, not Anthony Huber. I suspect that some people on The View are going to be sued for character assassination of Rittenhouse. Progressives will never admit their side of an issue is wrong. Huber would be alive today if he hadn’t hit Rittenhouse with his skateboard and tried to grab his rifle away from him. There are photos of him grabbing at the rifle. He may not have known what took place with Joseph Rosenbaum just prior to his interaction with Rittenhouse. All he knew was people were chasing him and, ipso facto, there was an immediate understanding that he was an enemy to the cause within the riot.
Hostin added, “There’s another notion, people are saying this isn’t about not about race. We have to remember that he responded to a protest about racial injustice, so that’s a part of this. Instead of protesting, he was there to protect property as if property is more important than life.”
That’s some real OIympic-style racist stretching Hostin was doing. Rittenhouse testified he went to Kenosha, which was also his home town since his father and other relatives lived there and he worked in Kenosha, to help his community from rioters, looters, and arsonists, the people that the Democrats running the city and state did nothing to stop. Race only entered the minds of race hustlers who bring race into every situation because they live and breathe race.
Here’s the thing. Kyle was helping people who were hurt in the riot. He was seen putting out a fire that the rioters started and was instantly deemed an enemy of the riot. I don’t believe those men saw him as an active shooter. Most people run away from an active shooter. They went after him because they heard he shot someone and he was the kid who was thwarting their efforts to create maximum damage during a riot. All three people Rittenhouse shot attacked him and he thought he was going to be killed. The jury believed that Rittenhouse believed he was going to be killed, and they rendered a verdict of Not Guilty for all five charges against him, charges that according to the evidence the prosecution had in their possession, should never have been filed in the first place. They filed those charges out of fear of the mob that Anthony Huber participated in.
Whoopi Goldberg playing a video clip of a father grieving over the loss of his son would have been effective if his criminal son hadn’t attacked Rittenhouse and grabbed at his rifle. I can safely speculate that Goldberg would not have played such a video of Rittenhouse’s father if Kyle were killed by Huber or the other two he shot that night in August 2020. In fact, there were 25 or more people killed as a direct result of the summer of love nightly riots in 2020 and I don’t recollect any of the progressives being paid millions of dollars to spew hatred on television giving a damn about any one of them.
