A lot of liberals are freaking out over the Rittenhouse trial.
They were sold a bill of goods about Kyle Rittenhouse and his guilt by the media. Now that that's all been blown up, many are refusing delivery on the truth. They refuse to accept that he acted in legitimate self-defense.
Instead, they believe that the case is in question now, not because Rittenhouse is innocent but because Judge Bruce Schroeder is somehow biased. That's the lie they're being sold by the media. That lie got further kicked off on Wednesday after the judge had the ringtone on his phone go off and it allegedly was “God Bless the USA” by Lee Greenwood. Because that's a Trump rally song, they inferred the judge must therefore be biased. And they were quickly off to the conspiracy races.
Then it got even crazier on Thursday when the judge made a joke about hoping the food order for the court wasn't delayed by the supply chain crisis.

Then CNN spun that somehow into something remarkable and racist.
… the media room let out a collective gasp https://t.co/jFNeysJNZp

Oh no! The judge made a joke about the supply chain crisis! And everyone gasped!
Yet even that was a lie. Townhall's Julio Rosas busted that falsehood.
I'm in the media room. I chuckled and maybe a few people gasped. It was not some unanimous reaction.

But seriously how twisted do you have to be — and uninformed about the supply chain crisis — to get yourself in a twist over a joke that was not racist in the slightest? Again, it's not about reality, it's just about stoking outrage against the perceived enemy — in this case, a teenager who defended himself.
However, deluded liberals have now added to the crazy with an effort to remove Judge Schroeder from the case. They've started a petition to have the judge removed.
Here's part of it:
Judge Bruce Schroeder has demonstrated on multiple occasions that he is not fit to make fair judgements on this case. His continual insistence that Rittenhouse be allowed to walk free shows that he puts no value in the safety of the public. His decisions in this matter have unequivocally proven that he needs to be removed. If he cannot take something as severe as hate crimes resulting in murder seriously, how can we expect him to make fair judgments in any other trial?
This petition, upon receiving enough signatures, will be sent to the Illinois State House. We will demand that they remove Judge Bruce Schroeder from his seat in the interest of the safety of not only the people of Illinois, but for all Americans.
But did you pick up on the small problem here with their petition? Hilariously, it was directed to the “Illinois State House” despite the judge and the trial being in Wisconsin. So good luck with that one, guys! Additionally, that isn't the way one does things anyway, even if you had the right state. Judges don't get removed because of delusional mobs. At least not yet, in this society.
More than 7,000 people have signed the petition at this point, showing how many people you can get to sign aboard something that isn't factual. But it stands to reason — it's the same people who have no real idea of the facts of the case, to begin with.
