Kyle Rittenhouse's Show Has Been Cancelled?

While the media attention around Kyle Rittenhouse has waned after his correct acquittal on multiple murder charges, it was reported yesterday that 'social justice' organizations on the Arizona State University campus were campaigning to have him expelled.

Here's a sample of what the far-left demands entailed.

“Even with a not-guilty verdict from a flawed ‘justice’ system — Kyle Rittenhouse is still guilty to his victims and the families of those victims,” the groups’ Instagram statement reads. “Join us to demand from ASU that these demands be met to protect students from a violent, blood-thirsty murderer.”

Those demands include that ASU withdraw Rittenhouse’s enrollment, put out a statement condemning “racist murderer” Rittenhouse and white supremacy in general, and redirect funding from campus police to the ASU Multicultural Center.

Of course, everything that is being required is insane. Rittenhouse isn't liable to his victims since he didn't have any. Rather, he defended himself against criminals who sought to kill him, including a child rapist. He breached no rules in the end, and he had every right to discharge his firearm when he did. While the families of those individuals have a right to grieve regardless of the circumstances, this letter fails to acknowledge that Rittenhouse is not obligated to them.

Furthermore, considering that he only fired in self-defense, Rittenhouse is clearly not a "bloodthirsty killer." He would have had many more opportunities to kill people if he had turned up that night simply wanting to shoot people, but he didn't. Those facts, once again, are undeniable. And, of course, mentioning racial supremacy here is outright slanderous and devoid of any supporting proof.

But, as I mentioned earlier, when those requests were made public, the next question was how ASU would respond. Well, we might have our answer, albeit the specifics are unclear at this time. That comes via Phoenix New Times.

In an official statement Monday to Phoenix New Times, ASU described Rittenhouse as “not enrolled.”

Rittenhouse testified during his trial earlier this month that he was a student at ASU, studying nursing. At the time, ASU confirmed that Rittenhouse was a non-degree student who had been taking online classes. The semester he had enrolled in ends this week.

It’s not clear when, how, or why his status at the university changed, and spokespeople there did not reply to further inquires from New Times on the matter, despite a campus controversy over his possible arrival.

At the end of this week, Rittenhouse was meant to conclude his current semester. He had also said publicly that he intended to attend ASU not only as an online student but also in person. However, this does not appear to be the case right now. What went wrong? Were these far-left organizations successful in having him fired?

That's something I'm not quite ready to say yet. Though Rittenhouse recently announced that he intends to continue his nursing studies at ASU, he also hinted that he could want to pursue a different path, such as becoming a lawyer. Furthermore, previous to the trial, he had already dropped two classes. Is it possible that he dropped out completely on his own? It's understandable that the man would want to take a vacation. But, according to the New York Times, what makes this extra stranger is that ASU reacted to them by claiming Rittenhouse hadn't gone through the admissions process, implying he'd never been a student there.

Even if there's another reason why Rittenhouse is no longer enrolled, it's frightening to see these extremists on college campuses making these types of demands. Remember, Arizona State University was the source of the recordings of Kyrsten Sinema being harassed in a restroom. There has to be a change over there.
