Kyle Rittenhouse may be a free man and exonerated as ‘not guilty’ according to a jury of his peers, but that isn’t going to stop the social justice warriors at Arizona State University from committing a grave injustice against him.
“Student organizations at ASU are organizing a protest to get Kyle Rittenhouse (who is an online student) kicked out of ASU,” the popular Libs of TikTok account reported.
The demands of the student organizations are straightforward, but extremely warped.
- Withdraw Kyle Rittenhouse from ASU
- Release a statement against White Supremacy & Racist Murderer Kyle Rittenhouse
- Reaffirm support for the Multicultural Center on Campus as a Space Safe from White Supremacy
- Reidirect Funding from ASU PD to support the Multicultural Center and Establishment of a CAARE Center on Campus
Kyle Rittenhouse’s lawyers may have yet another slam dunk defamation case, considering that these statements are malicious and factually wrong. Calling someone a ‘murderer’ who has been found ‘not guilty’ by a jury is factually wrong. Referring to someone as a “white supremacist” without evidence may be a matter of opinion, but this factually devoid opinion is being weaponized as a pretense to cause direct harm to Kyle Rittenhouse by trying to get him removed from Arizona State University.
The Post Millennial provided more background on the ASU student organizations involved.
“Political student organization MECHA de ASU posted a list of demands to their Instagram on Friday, calling for campus leadership to ‘withdraw’ Rittenhouse from the university, to issue a statement against ‘white supremacy,’ and to defund their campus police in order to redirect funding to the multicultural center,” the Post Millennial reported.
“MECHA de ASU is a Chicano-centered organization for students on ASU’s campus. According to the group’s GoFundMe page set up for general funding for the student organization, ‘Our work is toward empowering our community in order to liberate colonized people. Our values are rooted in anti-colonialism, anti-imperialism, anti-capitalism, anti-heteropatriarchy, antiracism’,” the report noted.
“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 said on Instagram. “Join us to demand from ASU that these demands be met to protect students from a violent, blood-thirsty murderer.”
ASU’s multicultural center is infamous for its Woke politics and incessant accusations of “White Supremacy.” A viral video showed white students being harrassed at the MultiCultural Center for the crime of ‘being white.’
Will these students get expelled for harassing a peer based on his race? https://t.co/qDJYrZhZHn

The “police matter” sticker triggered a small group of ASU students into a tirade about the purported intruders.
A spokesman for the school said that the Dean of Students Office is “aware of the disagreement between a handful of students that was captured in a video circulated on social media.”
“The Dean of Students Office will be discussing it with all involved,” the statement said. “ASU is a community of more than 100,000 people from all 50 states and more than 150 countries. Differences of opinion are part of the university experience. The university expects respectful dialogue between students in all engagements.”
Representative Paul Gosar (R., Ariz.) called on ASU president Michael Crow to address the “racist attack” against “peaceful students sitting at a study table minding their business.”
“State/federal money pays for these buildings,” he said. “They are open to all students including white students. I love ASU but this needs to stop.”
It looks like there will soon be another student who is going to be attacked at ASU for the crime of being white: Kyle Rittenhouse.
ASU’s anti-Rittenhouse rally is scheduled to be held on campus on December 1.
