Wisconsin Gov. Puts National Guard on Alert Before Rittenhouse Verdict – Something He Didn’t Do for 2020 Riots Until It Was Too Late
Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers was slow to call out the National Guard in the summer of 2020 when Kenosha was burning, and President Donald Trump was offering to help, but he’s called them out now in advance of the verdict Kyle Rittenhouse case.
Rittenhouse was among several men and women who answered the call to secure Car Source’s business on the third night of riots that essentially destroyed two other company locations. Police kettled the rioters, who were marauding in the streets, setting fires, beating people, and attacking a kid who came to help—17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.
By the time it was over, three men had been shot after they attacked him.
Instead of doing his job, Evers, too busy counting Antifa and BLM votes, left the policing to an overmatched Kenosha Police force.
After the shootings, he sent in the Guard to stop the violence.
Channel 3000 in Wisconsin reported that last summer, “Evers deployed National Guard troops to the city following a violent night of protests during which Kyle Rittenhouse shot three people, killing two of them.” [emphasis added]
Conservatives, including Wisconsin U.S. Senator Ron Johnson, have never let him forget it.
Already, the usual rabble, who started rioting after the police shooting of Jacob Blake, has begun making threats to the public and the jury in the Rittenhouse case if they don’t come to the right decision.
Many on the Left have called Rittenhouse a vigilante, but what do you call threatening a town and its people if the justice is served doesn’t meet with the mob’s approval?
Evers says he’s scrambling 500 National Guardsmen and women to help.
The jury is expected to begin deliberations in the Rittenhouse case on Monday.

Notes from the Editor
As residents of Wisconsin, and U.S. citizens, we at 0censor have in the past condemned that Trump, nor Evers, ever did enough to stop these riots, thus they continued and got worse as time went on. These should have been dealt with by force if needed overwhelming force.
While we 100% support the right of Americans to protest, we do not, nor is any citizen given the right under the constitution the right to riot, loot, take the lives of fellow citizens, burning down parts of the city while this was going on.
In the shooting in the Rittenhouse case, armed citizens protecting property is due to the failure of local and state governments to protect the people and their property.
The prosecuting attorneys in the Rittenhouse case were asking why he showed up armed, the reason is clear, the police and other authorities were not able to protect him, when this happens, every citizen has the constitutional right to protect themselves.
