Kyle Rittenhouse lives in Illinois, just on the border of Wisconsin — if you have not been paying attention to the news, but he is also enrolled at Arizona State for online courses.
That second part is causing a number of organizations to start a rally to kick Rittenhouse off-campus… a campus that he has actually never been on.
Student organizations MEChA (Movimiento Estudiantil Chicanx de Aztlán), Students for Socialism, and others are apparently planning to rally and protest this week to “Get murderer Kyle Rittenhouse off our campus.”
The organization’s four demands are as follows: “Withdraw Kyle Rittenhouse from ASU,” “Release a statement against white supremacy and racist murderer Kyle Rittenhouse,” “Reaffirm support for the multicultural center on campus as a space safe from white supremacy,” and “Redirect funding from ASU PD to support the multicultural center and establishment of a CAARE Center on campus.”
It’s ransom note continues: “Even with a not-guilt verdict from a flawed ‘justice’ system — Kyle Rittenhouse is still guilty to his victims and the families of those victims,” the group continued in its demands post on Instagram. “Join us to demand from ASU that these demands be met to protect students from a violent, blood-thirsty murderer.”
The Post Millennial wrote that Karlstack, a SubStack by economist Chris Brunet, said that ASU is a public university and therefore, does not have the ability to expel a student simply to meet demands like this.
“ASU admins have already said that even if Kyle had gone to prison he could still continue his studies online from prison,” he wrote.
The rally is scheduled for Dec. 1, in case you want to mark your calendars. This could get interesting.
