As the regular reader has probably been told too many times, Peak Stupidity is NOT a news site. There's no way we can keep up with it all, so we'll stick with the stupidity we know. It's a "known known", in the categorization of some Persian Gulf war-mongering general. We stick with the stupidity that we know you know is stupid.
However, the 3 different trials that are going on concurrently involving alt-right defenders of traditional America against antifa Commie thugs and black thugs, in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Brunswick, Georgia, and Charlottesville, Virginia* will be discussed here in a post next week. These are related, as they are all three examples of the current regime's and Establishment's work in progress in squashing any defense of what's coming. I will not get into details, but it'll be the usual polemic opinion with a little guidance.
Just now however, I remembered a certain yahoo headline that popped as I was exiting an email account. I usually try to just ignore this Lyin' Press page, as I close the tab, or type in a new address. This one caught my eye, and I saved the link and the screenshot above. I hate to link to yahoo, and you can get to this quick story elsewhere, but here - Rittenhouse judge in spotlight after disallowing word 'victims' in courtroom.
Peak Stupidity wrote a little about American hero Kyle Rittenhouse just after he defended himself nicely from 3 anfita/BLM thugs on the streets of Kenosha in summer of '20 in KYLE'S LIFE MATTERS! We don't use the term "hero" willy-nilly either, as seems to be the modern trend. Nowadays the term is used for those "First Responders", the surly lady braving the Kung Flu at the drug store counter, or anyone who finishes a 5K. This guy was not just defending himself, but he had been put in that position by his efforts in guarding businesses against looting and arson in the streets of Kenosha.
Back to the article, I was very surprised to see that Judge Bruce Schroeder, who will be presiding over Mr. Rittenhouse's trial, is not one of the ctrl-left. I am not legal-minded, so I myself was surprised that terms of behavior in the courtroom for the trial include the specification of non-allowed terminology. Of course, the yahoo writer, Erik Ortiz has his own "eyebrows raised"**, by the disallowance of the term "victim" for the 3 guys who Kyle Rittenhouse shot in self defense. However, I've learned that it is a regular practice in for Judge Schroeder to disallow "victim", just based on the presumption of innocence that is supposed to be a part of our justice system.
I guess this yahoo Ortiz did a good job in snowing even me with the slant of this headline, implying that Kyle Rittenhouse was getting special treatment by the court. That was only for a bit, as I read the rest and he at least included the history of this practice.
Judge Schroeder says "looters", "rioters", and "arsonists" will be OK. I hope "assailants" will be allowed too.
* The latter is some type of civil suit to further harass the alt-right/Conservative defenders (attempted) of the Robert E. Lee statue in that city four years back.
** I mean, before this "reporter" wrote the headline, did he actually get out from in front his computer and see anybody else with his eyebrows raised?
