Rights Are For Leftists Only

Kyle Rittenhouse defends himself after being attacked.

Geez Louise:

A data breach at a Christian crowdfunding website has revealed that serving police officers and public officials have donated money to fundraisers for accused vigilante murderers, far-right activists, and fellow officers accused of shooting black Americans.

In many of these cases, the donations were attached to their official email addresses, raising questions about the use of public resources in supporting such campaigns.

The breach, shared with journalists by transparency group Distributed Denial of Secrets, revealed the details of some donors who had previously attempted to conceal their identities using GiveSendGo’s anonymity feature, but whose identifying details the website preserved.

The beneficiaries of donations from public officials include Kyle Rittenhouse, who stands accused of murdering two leftwing protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last August. Rittenhouse traveled from neighboring Illinois to, by his own account, offer armed protection to businesses during protests over the police shooting of Jacob Blake.

Rittenhouse, who became a cause célèbre across conservative media throughout late 2020, and was even supported by then president Donald Trump, held a fundraiser on GiveSendGo billed as a contribution to his legal defense. According to data from the site, he raised $586,940 between 27 August last year and 7 January .

Among the donors were several associated with email addresses traceable to police and other public officials.

One donation for $25, made on 3 September last year, was made anonymously, but associated with the official email address for Sgt William Kelly, who currently serves as the executive officer of internal affairs in the Norfolk police department in Virginia.

“Data breach” is a fancy way of saying “hacked.”

Sgt. Kelly is currently being investigated for donating his own money to Kyle Rittenhouse’s defense fund. A cop in Virginia is being investigated for making a donation to the legal defense fund of a kid in Wisconsin.

The Left is pissed off. They are pissed that Kyle Rittenhouse stood up to them. They are pissed off that Kyle Rittenhouse shot three of their street thugs. They are pissed off that Kyle Rittenhouse was released on bail. They are pissed off that their attempts to get his bail revoked failed.

But right now what they are really pissed off about is that people have donated money to Kyle Rittenhouse’s defense fund.

People on the Right have no rights.

I’m not sure when the first crowdfunding website opened for business. But I bet it took less than 24 hours after that moment for people on the Left to try getting some conservative Republican(s) banned.

Only Leftists are entitled to free speech. Only Leftists are entitled to representation by an attorney. Only Leftists are entitled to due process and the presumption of innocence.

Somebody should remind the Left that what comes around goes around and Karma is a bitch.

      The PM of Japan will probably swing by Mar a Lago on his way home. Everybody in the world knows the 2020 election was stolen.

    • Swan Spirit says:

      President Dementia is 78 years old. He was born while WW2 was still going on. He grew up with the perception that the Japanese were ” less than” . Dementia has peculiar effects on the brain. Big chunks of memory go missing. Early memories can be more accessible than more recent ones. Hence corn pop, and Japanese boy, among other things.

      He will never be appropriate, or safe, in public, or in private, for that matter. The dims, in their greed for power, have cheated, and stolen an election, to place an incompetent buffoon in power. They think they can control him, and the entire country. This is their colossal mistake, and failure. Control, is an illusion.

      I remember, when it was revealed that Ronald Reagan was diagnosed with dementia, after he was out of office. He had been out of office for five years, when diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. The dims had extreme hissy fits speculating as to whether or not he was suffering while in office, which has never been proven, and is most likely untrue. They accused President Trump of all kinds of mental deficiencies. Joe Bye Bye, was showing signs of dementia, and inappropriate behavior, while in office as VP. Remember BFD, over Obanana care? The powers that be hid him from the public, way back then, so they knew.
      And they know now. This will not end well, for them.

      If white people not getting vaccinated hurts black people, what does black people not getting vaccinated do to black people?

      • lyn5 says:

        Isn’t the black vaccination rate under 10 percent?

        • Mt.Laurel says:

          Personal anecdotal evidence:

          Most all the Caucasians (non Hispanic) in our large office building have had their shots. even if they had to lie about jobs to get them. They also pester those of us still in the queue about trying to move up spots by checking certain boxes.

          Non of the blacks want the shot and are worried they will be forced. Very suspicious of the halt of j & j.

          Hispanics are also not breaking down the doors to get shot.

          Asian – mixed. Island Pacific seems to be very leery while Indians seem on the fence. Korean/Vietnamese/Chinese/… – more likely to have had or want the shot but not pestering others with lectures.

          Other fun fact – most of those that are leery were hoping for the j&j as they understood it was based more on the flu shot approach and felt more comfortable with that approach. are very very leery of the mRNA.

          • lyn5 says:

            The CDC is reporting demographic characteristics, including race/ethnicity, of people receiving COVID-19 vaccinations at the national level. As of April 13, 2021, CDC reported that race/ethnicity was known for just over half (55%) of people who had received at least one dose of the vaccine. Among this group, nearly two thirds were White (65%), 11% were Hispanic, 9% were Black, 5% were Asian, 1% were American Indian or Alaska Native, and <1% were Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander, while 9% reported multiple or other race. However, to date, CDC is not providing state-level demographic data for people vaccinated.

            https://www.kff.org/coronavirus-covid-19/issue-brief/latest-data-on-covid-19-vaccinations-race-ethnicity/

          • Mt.Laurel says:

            I do summaries of the raw covid data for work (my focus is Virginia, Maryland, DC) and I do not include much for ethnicity/race other than a general blurb (no charts, graphs or tables) as so many are blank or “not reported”. The vaccination data is even more sparse on details than the cases. Deaths and hospitalizations are more complete – but are often not self reported.

          • votermom says:

            Hubby says all of his co-workers whom he meets with regularly have gifted vaxxed (via “line-jumping” in his words), even though they just work from home.
            I think he wants to get vaxxed too, and is surprised I don’t want to.

          • Somebody says:

            Mt. Laurel, have you ever heard of The People’s Pundit a/k/a Richard Baris? He’s a pollster and a very accurate one.

            He apparently did a large poll, a deep dive into covid vaccines. Apparently in the past he’s been contracted to do studies via polling-surveys on flu vaccines with follow ups, so he has a baseline of knowledge.

            Anyway I saw a brief interview with him about his findings on the covid vaccine. He spent a lot of time explaining the lengths he went to making sure to mirror precisely ethnic groups in each area and nationwide. They also had a series of questions for leaners based on previous flu shot data to sort of rate them on a scale.

            He said people from the Indian subcontinent are the most skeptical and least likely to get the vaccine, followed by the native American population. There is a lot of skepticism in minority communities in general, but a baseline across our entire population of 24.9% are a hard no.

            So a quarter of our population will never get the vaccine. Another thing he found fascinating was the level of knowledge and understanding about the vaccines. He does polling for a living and usually there is a segment of the population that is just clueless. He said his team was absolutely shocked at the sophisticated level of knowledge Americans had on the vaccines. He said he can’t ever remember an issue where people were so well informed. This amused him because people are not getting this from the government and probably not from their private doctor. So much information is censored, but people are finding it.

            When speaking of how knowledgeable people were, he mentioned that the skeptical were more accepting of the J&J vaccine. He said there is a certain segment of the willing or strong leaners that will only get vaccinated if they can get the J&J.

            In the wrap up he said given the level of skepticism he didn’t see how we were going to reach a herd immunity threshold via vaccines if that threshold is as high as Fauci and others are claiming. He made an off handed comment that if something happened and there were problems with the J&J then forget about it. About 5 days later, problems with J&J were all over the news starting with CO.

            Things that make you go hmm.

            I still don’t get the pause and the bad press. There are almost 61,000 adverse events in total with the vaccines including thousands of deaths. Of those, just over 50 adverse events are attributable to J&J and I think it’s 2 or 3 deaths now out of thousands total.

            Baris has a website, I’m sure he has all the data there if anyone is interested

          • Mt.Laurel says:

            Thank you.

            Yes. I have heard of him but did not realize he had looked at covid from that perspective. Covid tracking is more of an add-on sideline for me and I end up doing most of it one the weekend (when they upload some of the data such as the long term care figures). But I know the demographics of the area and realize the numbers are just not reflecting that picture and that is is not a b/w issue.

            After I posted that comment, talked to my boss this subject came up (his daughter is in the 18-44 age group and asked for his input). He is an doc/epidemiologist and is leery of the whole j&j “pause” given the stats he has seen (as in it actually appears to have a much lower rate of severe reactions). given the evidence then they should be pausing all of them (or none of them – or being more specific on who is/is not at risk a nd better screening as others have worse stats – but only Astra in Europe has seen any push back.

            I have had the distinct feeling from various conversations that a lot of the “peon” type people the powers that be like to dismiss have been paying far more attention to the types being offered and that they feel more comfortable with conventional approaches but are still skeptical. I also hear questioning the risk for the general population. As in, if you are elderly/high risk then the shot mostly likely makes sense in terms of helping prevent a severe case but those not at high risk – the problems with the vaccines may outweigh the benefit. The only people I see buying into it wholesale are those that buy into the entire woke agenda (green banking anyone). Most everyone else realizes that this is NOT the same thing a flu shot.

            will look to see what else barris has.

            I am more the analyst type and look at the cost/benefit (be that monetary/public health/whatever) with my typical focus on inpatient/ambulatory/long tem care and the picture is not very clear.

        • lateblum says:

          In the Chicago area, the mayor blames white people for getting the vaccine and is saying out loud that the latest batches of vaccines are meant for “black and brown people”. I think she actually said “brothers and sisters”. I think she actually meant “voters”.
          Nothing like creating more divisiveness in this city. She knows that she needs every vote of every black and brown person in Chicago if she is to win re-election. Tbh, I don’t know why she’d want to be re-elected.
          She has brought very limited experience or knowledge to the job. And although she was dealt a bad hand with Covid and the gang violence, she has done nothing to improve what was already here. The teachers’ unions have run roughshod over her from the get go.

      • 1539days says:

        White guilt is not going to work because most of the people who didn’t run to get vaccinated also don’t buy into the White guilt narrative either.

    There are many beautiful mansions in Newport, RI, and you can tour a lot of them for a fee. The homes were the “summer cottages” of the rich and powerful in the last half of the 19th century, “The Guilded Age”. The owners of the mansions included Vanderbilts, Astors, and Morgans. They are truly palatial. I was on a tour one day of Marble House, not one of the largest of them but one with an interesting history, which includes being the site of a lot of fundraising for groups promoting women’s suffrage. When we got to the marble terrace, the whole house is made of marble, the tour guide began the story of how the owner of the house, Alva Vanderbilt, used to hold tea parties on the terrace to raise money for the legal bills and fines incurred by the women staging the suffrage protests. She would have items women could buy at greatly inflated prices so the women’s donations could be hidden from their husbands. I don’t know if any of Alva’s servants tried to dox the ladies by releasing their names and the number of fancy hankies they bought to their husbands, or if any of the women’s husbands ever tried to stop them. That people often need to go to lengths to anonymously support causes they believe in is an indictment of our lack of tolerance for people who see things differently.

    Alva was truly a feminist by any standards. Besides being a prolific fundraiser for the cause of suffrage for women, she also managed to maneuver her husband, William Kissam Vanderbilt, into building Marble House in her name alone. After the mansion was completed, she divorced him. The house was already hers alone. That might not be a big deal for a woman to figure out how to do today, but back then it was a real coup that was probably years in the planning. Lately Alva has lost her position as a revered feminist because it has become better known she coerced her daughter to marry a man because he was filthy rich. When she realized how unhappy her daughter was, she also helped her get the marriage annulled. Once again a person is being pilloried today for doing something in the past that was culturally appropriate at the time. Being able to marry off a daughter to enlarge a family’s contacts and wealth was what made daughters valuable.

    • votermom says:

      That is fascinating!

    • Swan Spirit says:

      I have to wonder, if some of those women were spending their husband’s money. They probably were. 😀

      • elliesmom says:

        At that time most women didn’t have much money to claim as their own. Money they brought into a marriage became their husband’s money, but they did have allowances for “household expenses”.

        I’vw toured most of the mansions that are open to the public in Newport. Someone on the tour always says, “Wouldn’t you have liked to have lived here?”, and then she sighs. I have no illusions. If I had lived back then, the closest I would have come to living in one of the mansions would have been as a scullery maid.

        • swanspirit says:

          I would still love to tour those homes.

          • elliesmom says:

            At the moment most of them aren’t open, but when they are, we’ll talk about it. If I was taking you on a tour, I’d pick the Breakers because it’s the grandaddy of them all. Then the Marble House. For #3 probably Rosecliff because you’d recognize it as the location for the Redford version of the Great Gatsby and from the ballroom scene from True Lies. Scenes from Armistead were filmed there, too. The tours take about a hour and a half each, but if there’s still time, next on the list would be Rough Point, home of tobacco heirsess Doris Duke. There’s a trolley that shuttles folks from one mansion to the next so the only walking is through the house and its gardens. Not all of them have parking. We used to go to Newport frequently for long weekends so I saw the homes one at a time, but you can buy a mansion ticket that admits you to all of them for one price. The Cliff Walk along the ocean will take you past the backyards of mansions where people still live.

That’s the danger of the Global Deep State Network. It’s designed to be used AGAINST a country’s own population not FOR them.

    Adam Toledo, the 13’year old shit and killed by police in Chicago, was also known by the nickname of “Lil Homicide” and was a gang member. Th e media of course, is not making this information about him, public.

        It has been common knowledge, for many years, and I am certain the people on this blog are aware; that gangs recruit kids as young as 9 and 10 years old, to do their dirty work, because they are treated leniently by the courts, if and when they get caught.
        So how is it a surprise, that one of the young ones who carry weapons, gets shot? No one will ever convince me, that BLM cares about black lives. They ignore EVERYTHING that eventually puts these kids in harms way, on an inner city street at three in the morning, with an armed adult, carrying a gun, shooting, and then weep and gnash their teeth, riot, loot and burn when the inevitable happens.

      I find it is easier to “keep it together” when by oneself in a public setting such as this. I know some people who feel the physical support of others find it lowers there defenses and gives them permission to express their emotions openly. That may have played a role in her decision to sit alone. It may also have been her desire to show to her “subjects” and to the world that she is carrying on in the best British tradition.
      I don’t know the actual reasons she was alone. But the picture of HRH sitting there, by herself, was poignant and evoked myriad thoughts and feelings in anyone who saw it. I found it reminiscent of when my mother lost her favorite sister – her best friend. It was heartbreaking for me at that time. It remains a heartbreaking memory still.

    As if things couldn’t get worse . . . From Minnesota last night.

  21. swanspirit says:

    Listen, my children, and you shall hear
    Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,
    On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-Five:
    Hardly a man is now alive
    Who remembers that famous day and year.

    He said to his friend, — “If the British march
    By land or sea from the town to-night,
    Hang a lantern aloft in the belfry-arch
    Of the North-Church-tower, as a signal-light, —
    One if by land, and two if by sea;
    And I on the opposite shore will be,
    Ready to ride and spread the alarm
    Through every Middlesex village and farm,
    For the country-folk to be up and to arm.”

    Then he climbed to the tower of the church,
    Up the wooden stairs, with stealthy tread,
    To the belfry-chamber overhead,
    And startled the pigeons from their perch
    On the sombre rafters, that round him made
    Masses and moving shapes of shade, —
    Up the light ladder, slender and tall,
    To the highest window in the wall,
    Where he paused to listen and look down
    A moment on the roofs of the town,
    And the moonlight flowing over all.

    Beneath, in the churchyard, lay the dead
    In their night-encampment on the hill,
    Wrapped in silence so deep and still,
    That he could hear, like a sentinel’s tread,
    The watchful night-wind, as it went
    Creeping along from tent to tent,
    And seeming to whisper, “All is well!”
    A moment only he feels the spell
    Of the place and the hour, the secret dread
    Of the lonely belfry and the dead;
    For suddenly all his thoughts are bent
    On a shadowy something far away,
    Where the river widens to meet the bay, —
    A line of black, that bends and floats
    On the rising tide, like a bridge of boats.

    Meanwhile, impatient to mount and ride,
    Booted and spurred, with a heavy stride,
    On the opposite shore walked Paul Revere
    Now he patted his horse’s side,
    Now gazed on the landscape far and near,
    Then impetuous stamped the earth,
    And turned and tightened his saddle-girth;
    But mostly he watched with eager search
    The belfry-tower of the old North Church,
    As it rose above the graves on the hill,
    Lonely, and spectral, and sombre, and still.

    And lo! as he looks, on the belfry’s height,
    A glimmer, and then a gleam of light!
    He springs to the saddle, the bridle he turns,
    But lingers and gazes, till full on his sight
    A second lamp in the belfry burns!

    A hurry of hoofs in a village-street,
    A shape in the moonlight, a bulk in the dark,
    And beneath from the pebbles, in passing, a spark
    Struck out by a steed that flies fearless and fleet:
    That was all! And yet, through the gloom and the light,
    The fate of a nation was riding that night;
    And the spark struck out by that steed, in his flight,
    Kindled the land into flame with its heat.

    It was twelve by the village-clock,
    When he crossed the bridge into Medford town.
    He heard the crowing of the cock,
    And the barking of the farmer’s dog,
    And felt the damp of the river-fog,
    That rises when the sun goes down.

    It was one by the village-clock,
    When he rode into Lexington.
    He saw the gilded weathercock
    Swim in the moonlight as he passed,
    And the meeting-house windows, blank and bare,
    Gaze at him with a spectral glare,
    As if they already stood aghast
    At the bloody work they would look upon.

    It was two by the village-clock,
    When he came to the bridge in Concord town.
    He heard the bleating of the flock,
    And the twitter of birds among the trees,
    And felt the breath of the morning-breeze
    Blowing over the meadows brown.
    And one was safe and asleep in his bed
    Who at the bridge would be first to fall,
    Who that day would be lying dead,
    Pierced by a British musket-ball.

    You know the rest. In the books you have read
    How the British regulars fired and fled, —
    How the farmers gave them ball for ball,
    From behind each fence and farmyard-wall,
    Chasing the red-coats down the lane,
    Then crossing the fields to emerge again
    Under the trees at the turn of the road,
    And only pausing to fire and load.

    So through the night rode Paul Revere;
    And so through the night went his cry of alarm
    To every Middlesex village and farm, —
    A cry of defiance, and not of fear, —
    A voice in the darkness, a knock at the door,
    And a word that shall echo forevermore!
    For, borne on the night-wind of the Past,
    Through all our history, to the last,
    In the hour of darkness and peril and need,
    The people will waken and listen to hear
    The hurrying hoof-beat of that steed,
    And the midnight-message of Paul Revere.

      I used to know that poem by heart.

      Thanks for the reminder.

      I love the poem, but like the book by Washington Irving that has so many people believing Columbus sailed to prove the Earth is round, Longfellow got the history wrong. Revere and William Dawes were captured by the British before they reached Concord. Dawes escaped, but Revere’s horse was confiscated, and he walked back to Lexington. Young Samuel Prescott was the rider who reached Concord. But Prescott didn’t rhyme. 🙂

      If I may.
      The 2020 election was the last free election and it was stolen from President Trump.
      The mechanism for stealing & cheating is firmly in place.
      That was it , no more folks

        So the response needs to be massive Republican, Green and Libertarian cheating. So much cheating that it is a complete and utter joke. Like 5 times the total population of the USA casts ballots. If we are having fake elections from now on lets join in and make them a complete joke. And let’s talk about what a joke our governing elitists are.

    PITTSBURGH — They’re still there, planted in front of stately homes in wealthy suburban neighborhoods, on flag poles in middle-class communities, and along the front stoops of inner-city row houses.

    Whether they say “Trump 2020” or simply “Trump,” there are plenty of people who have left their sentiments planted on their own personal hill.

    It is not just here in Pennsylvania. The signs are not hard to spot as you travel to the Great Lakes, the Midwest, and Appalachia.

      Whole different story when a black cop murders an unarmed white woman, huh?

        His identity is being protected, and, he won’t be prosecuted, either. Very different standards, for Democrats. It’s infuriating, that not a single person has been able to identify this person. I wonder what the people who know who it is, have been threatened with.

    • Constance says:

      I’m just sure he wasn’t a Capitol Cop. CIA, FBI, Dept of Justice maybe but not a Capitol Cop. And also sure he isn’t white and you know he might not even be a citizen.

    Certainly glad the Honor Guard was masked, don’t want the Duke to catch Covid.
    Sheeeesh.

    A paramedic made a $10 donation to Rittenhouse’s defense fund and a local reporter doxxed him. The media makes me want to puke. Bet he doesn’t get booted off twatter.
