WI: Militant Leftists Attempt to Intimidate Judge in Rittenhouse Case

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- On Friday evening, 12 February, a group of about a dozen far-left protestors, allied with the DA’s office in Kenosha, called for the removal of Judge Bruce Schroeder, because the Judge followed the rule of law and refused to facilitate the political persecution of Kyle Rittenhouse.

Rittenhouse is being tried for the self-defense shooting of three men who attacked him as he fled from mobs during the Kenosha riots. Judge Schroeder required the DA to follow the rule of law.

Far Left activist Erica Ness, who is white, made these incendiary claims:  From kenoshanews.com:

“Yesterday’s (Thursday) hearing sent a clear message to violent white supremacists: come to Kenosha to kill protestors, and you’ll be supported by the police and the court system,” said Erica Ness, an organizer with Leaders of Kenosha. “Meanwhile, Black and brown folks are having their doors kicked in and are dragged back to jail for the smallest infractions against their bond. This is a gross display of bias, and we’re calling on Judge Schroeder to resign and for Kyle Rittenhouse to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.”

Rittenhouse has never been shown to have any associations with white supremacists. The Far Left has defined the common use of the “OK” hand gesture as a symbol of white supremacists. By this standard, anyone who uses the OK gesture is a white supremacist. If it were not taken so seriously by the media, it would be laughable.  Every person who Rittenhouse shot, was white.

Judge Schroeder, in the bond hearing, repeatedly corrected the prosecution on the facts, the law, and bond procedure. The hearing can be seen in its entirety online.   The prosecutor was well aware there was no restriction on where Kyle could reside, in the bond order. The prosecution could have requested such a restriction in the initial hearing but did not do so.

If you wish to understand the protest, watch the hearing for the full 52 minutes.

Ness does not want the rule of law followed. She does not want due process. She wants Kyle Rittenhouse to be punished before any trial, because, apparently, he dared to defend himself against a violent mob that attacked him as he fled. Ness is quoted here.  From WISN.com:

“The judge has said, ‘OK sure, you broke that condition, you didn’t tell us your address, you lied, you don’t have to give people your address anymore.’ That is unprecedented,” Ness said. “This is someone who killed two people in our community and this is someone who continues to galivant around and flash white supremacist symbols and embolden more of this violence.”

At the hearing, Judge Schroeder repeatedly showed these claims (also made by the prosecutor) were false. People routinely forget to file the change of address for the postal delivery, which is the only thing that was missed by Kyle Rittenhouse’s legal team. People who do so are never arrested and jailed for this error, especially when they always appear at court as required.

Ness appears to believe that because her political prosecutor allies have claimed a person has violated the law, that person no longer has any rights. She wishes the Constitution to be ignored when she wants someone she hates to be punished.

Judge Schroeder refused to be intimidated by the mob.  From radio.com:

Though Schroeder ordered Rittenhouse to give the court his address, which would be kept under seal but refused to increase his bail and have him jailed. The judge also acknowledged Friday’s protesters.

“This case is not going to be decided by demonstrators of one type or another. And, frankly, it’s not going to affect anything that I do,” Schroeder said.

Ness and her allies on the far left are showing how much they detest the rule of law and due process. The only rule of law and due process they are interested in is that which gives them the outcome they desire, on a case-by-case basis. Instead of due process and the rule of law, they support mob rule, such as was attempted during the Kenosha riots.

The left does not accept the rule of law and due process are how Western civilization has achieved the enormous progress it has made in the last 250 years.

The abandonment of the rule of law and due process leads, inevitably, to Venezuela, Cambodia, and the old Soviet Union.

Judge Schroeder ordered Kyle’s physical location be kept secret from the District Attorney’s  Office, so as to prevent physical violence against Kyle and his family.  The District Attorney Binger was told necessary contact with Kyle can be made through the Court, or by the Sheriff’s department.

I watched the video of the hearing and then watched the protest. The protest was a joke, maybe 12 people or so laying on the court steps yelling the names of the three people shot. I wish they would get this over with and set him free. He doesn’t need this hanging over him forever or anyone dragging their feet just like the husband and wife that protected their home from the terrorist’s that broke down the fence to their fenced community, threatened to kill them, eat their food and was telling them which bed they were going to sleep… Read more »


This small group of goons may be a joke now but they are gaining traction. Mob justice is the pathway to a Bolshevik society. That is what they want. They want to intimidate the courts in to compliance with political prosecutions. Chuckie Schumer did the same thing on the steps of the US Supreme Courty. And Merrick Garland sees nothing wrong with it. We are in a sad state of affairs.


Indeed we are and Chuckie and his minions need to pay for their crimes as well.


I am not quite sure, but I think the three that were shot were all felons .


Two of the three were felons. One had a firearm. Has he been charged with felon in possession?


That’s not what gun laws are for. Violations of gun laws are among the first charges that are dropped when government employees prosecute habitual, violent criminals.




Yeah and such crimes keep on rising when governments that allow an election to be stolen give the crooks what they want. That’s right, STOLEN! Plenty of proof and the MSM is covering it up but the Truth will come forward. It does and it will.

Mystic Wolf

All three were and are felons two they never have to worry about again the third they are now calling leftie as his right arm was blown off.


Any lose of life is a tragedy! With that said; Kyle Rittenhouse, based on all the evidence that I’ve seen, simply defended himself and the courts should find him innocent sooner than later. Furthermore, those that attacked him should be prosecuted.

Mystic Wolf

Two of the thugs that attacked him were put down, the 1st guy took a shot to the right side of his head which removed part of his brain, the 2nd guy got a shot in the gut, the slug traveled up and went through his heart, the third guy list his right arm, two are dead one is facing a good many years in jail. All their were convicted felons and all had either firearms or a large knife.


Prove that there was any possibility part of a brain was even there to be removed.

Dry gulched

The whole “racist”, “White supremacy ” schtick is getting tiresome. If White supremacy was as prevalent as they say there’d be more of these Kyle Rittenhouse cases in the courts. Their overuse of the word racist makes it lose it’s meaning.

crazy joe



Pssst…you don’t have to yell, we can hear you. <i understand your frustration. Unfortunately there are racists of all colors, stripes, and spots. When it comes down to it, all a person can truly do is manage their own heart and beliefs. That includes not letting false accusations of racism get to you. God will be the ultimate judge.


I believe in God and I pray. I also believe in Self Defense and the Second Amendment and all the Rights that the Constitution affords us. Kyle Rittenhouse deserves every right that his is afforded by our Constitution and he indeed is not guilty of any crime. He shouldn’t even be before a Judge other than his maker when he dies. He is a law abiding citizen.


I would say the word fits but their definition of the word is way off track. You can say what you want to say but it is the supreme mind that gives them work that they seem to not be able to create themselves. They say give me jobs, give me money but tear down and burn your businesses as they blame the white man for shooting a damn crook and drug dealer that robbed people and sold drugs. Now they want to start another riot over the same damn thing. Supreme minds build businesses and Idiots want to tear… Read more »


Did you have a point or just want to ramble a bit? That’s fine. Perhaps we can agree on most things except God’s laws preempt any Constitution or man made contrivances. Good thing that you pray. I hope you are planning on doing more, such as reading and obeying. Even Islamist pray 5 times a day.


I read that differently. If there WERE trul somany “white supremacists” these demonstrators rabblerousers would have been taken out with the trash long ago. We have been VERY patient with them.


The 3 that were shot were all Felons. They were all members of “The Tribe.”
It’s also strange that the survivor was trying to shoot Rittenhouse with a handgun, that by Law he was forbidden to have. How come he’s not being prosecuted?!

Mystic Wolf

The one guy that was put down was a convicted child molester and had a rather large knife, yeah he took one in the noggin and never woke up. The guy that had his right arm destroyed had a large caliber revolver, there was a noise he turned for just a second and there went his arm. Yeah the only reason the prosecutor wants Kyles address is so that it can turn the mobs loose on him.


At least 2 of these POS’s faced trial in another court. Both carried previous felony charges. The third POS also with felony charge and carrying a weapon needs a date with a good piece of hemp. Hippybiker we all know the third loser won’t stand trial in today’s courts. He was just a peaceful protester.


Hee, that picture looks a lot like the total attendance at a Biden rally !


lmaoooooooooooooooooo how true. AND they still claim he won from his basement.

Especially when 3 or more Soros paid, violent,armed with firearms or other deadly weapons, drug crazed far left… Read more »

Another useless liberal who wants everyone to know she is ignorant.


Interesting. They are all masked.


Just like ISIS people, maybe the same entity only in the US. They should be treated the same as those in the middle east under Trump, those under biden will be given monetary awards for appeasing the left.


Judge Bruce Schroeder belongs on the US Supreme Court. But that’s not going to happen during the Biden, or any other Democrat, administration. Otherwise, let’s put to rest the lie, promulgated by leftist skunks, that the OK gesture means something other than “ok”.

The use of the “ OK” hand sign is a boogie man concoction by the Left, just as the term racist is used by them to designate anyone not agreeing with their Marxist ideology.
BTW- the Bolshevik left uses their own hand signal quite often to debate a conservative.
It’s the middle finger on both hands followed by incoherent babbling.
You can see that sign, flashed at Judge Schroeder by the father of the criminal that is now left handed in addition to being a Commie Leftist. Fitting.


Actually, it was a boogieman concocted by the not-left (4chan) to troll the left. They thought it would be great fun. They never considered that the left has the magic power to redefine “reality” in the US via the MSM, which made their joke “come true.” And now America is stuck with it.


Only stuck with it for a while. Let’s not forget People, This is 2021 and we Can take back the House and the Senate in 2022. It will be here before you know it so do your research on these candidates now and lets not Vote for the Incumbents unless they stand for God our Flag and the Constitution of these United States of America. Anything short of that, Vote them out. Lets vote some new blood in. Do your research on these new runners for office.


Agreed, but one minor quibble. Flipping father was Mr Huber – father to the Huber who grabbed a loaded rifle pointing at his heart and yanked while Kyle was holding the trigger. As I see it Huber Jr committed suicide, Kyle just happened to have unknowingly provided the means. Father cannot accept loss of his son, particularly by suicide – so he is lashing out at everything.
Following gun grabber logic – Maybe every parent who losses a child should be a prohibited person for a year afterwards for temporary insanity. Any excuse after all.

Get Out

IMOA they need to start the trial and show the video that’ll exonerate him. We’ve all seen the video when the violent mob began chasing Rittenhouse attacking him.

Mystic Wolf

The problem is the prosecutor does not want that video shown, you can bet that far left creature will try everything it can to prevent that.


true enough, but it is the call of THIS judge to quash that video. And if the prosecutor gets mad enough when he learns the jury WILL see that video footage, all of it, maybe he’ll do something stupid and get his sorry backside tossed into the pokey for a few nights on contempt charges…. if felony level, he’s at least temporarily barred from working as an attorney. Let’s hope he cooks his own goose. That sauce would look great all over his smug mug, nappie and all.

Get Out

Doubt they’ll be able to stop the video from being used in his defense. Most, if not all of the video’s posted were from other violent participants in the mob as they chased and then caught him on three separate occasions forcing him to defend himself.

WI Patriot

Why aren’t these people being arrested and detained indefinitely…???


There are way to many Tyrants running the governments of these states and the White House.


Oh CRAP! This means that every SCUBA diver in the world is a “white supremacist.” We use the “OK” hand gesture as a way of checking if the other diver (your partner) is ACTUALLY OK


Well, most of them ARE white…:)

They need to tell the rest of us white people that we are using this now, ’cause I didn’t know…

These perverts are no more interested in justice than my pet chicken is. No, they only want THEIR way, and will stop at nothing to get it. I hope they step just far enough accross the line of legality to allow this judge to slap them into the slammer on contempt charges. I think he nearl had grounds to do this when that dingbat prosecutor was railing on him so badly last week. I hope HE gets a few nights in the slammer too, so he can be taken off the case. He is as crooked as a gimpy three… Read more »


Erica Ness is a certified cuckoo-clock.


Stop denigrating quality cuckoo clocks like that my good man!

Cheers from the oil patch in Central Wyoming


My abject apologies, sir! Although… I’m not sure just how to take the fact that I owe an apology… to a cuckoo clock!

stole this from somewhere else:
So a pedophile, a domestic abuser and a felon all walk into a bar and Kyle says, “Shots are on me”. lol


Notwithstanding the question of why the DA’s Office may need Rittenhouse’s residential address (communications are required through counsel), … the question that comes immediately to mind is: If the DA’s Office cannot be “trusted” to maintain in confidence such basic information and the Judge so determined: “so as to prevent physical violence against Kyle and his family” – How can Rittenhouse receive a “just, fair, impartial” trial prosecuted by the same DA and staff ? … It should be unnecessary but I am also compelled to note that the DA and staff as well as investigators all enjoy “qualified” or… Read more »


OR, the judge is allowing the DA enough rope so as to allow precedence for a mistrial?

Kudos to the Judge for not backing down like the SCOTUS.


DANG IT !!! That was my safe word / Symbol . Gonna have to have a talk with the sweetie.
