Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager who was acquitted in the shooting deaths of two men and the injury of another during protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, has defeated the liberals again.
Some leftists on the campus of Arizona State University had lobbied to stop Rittenhouse from attending their school, insisting that his registration be withdrawn, but they have failed, he said on Monday during an appearance on Blaze TV’s “You Are Here,” The Daily Wire reported.
Asked about what schools he’s looking at for college, Rittenhouse enthusiastically responded, “ASU, Arizona State University — I’ll be there in the spring!”
“Weren’t their people protesting that?” Blaze Media’s Sara Gonzales asked the 18-year-old.
“Yeah, but they failed,” Rittenhouse responded.
When the protesters were mocked for falsely claiming the teen “murdered” “black people,” Rittenhouse replied, “Look, everybody has the right to protest, no matter how silly it is.”
But last week officials at the university said that Rittenhouse “was not currently enrolled at the university, though he was taking online classes, as activists called for his removal from the school.”
“Kyle Rittenhouse has not gone through the admissions process with Arizona State University and is not enrolled in the Edson College of Nursing and Health Innovation,” it said. “ASU can confirm that Mr. Rittenhouse enrolled as a non-degree seeking ASU Online student for the session that started Oct. 13, 2021, which allows students access to begin taking classes as they prepare to seek admission into a degree program at the university.”
The school then followed that statement with another.
“Kyle Rittenhouse has not gone through the ASU admissions process. Our records show that he is not currently enrolled in any classes at ASU,” it said.
But during an interview on Fox News, Dave Hancock, a spokesman for the Rittenhouse family, said that Rittenhouse’s professors “advised [him] to temporarily withdraw from classes but that he is planning on enrolling again.”
“Amid his most recent semester, Kyle’s professors at Arizona State University recommended a compassionate withdrawal of his online classes,” he said. “Now that the trial is behind him, Kyle is eager to enroll in more classes. He is hopeful that attending Arizona State in person will soon be an option.”
The Arizona State University Students for Socialism, Students for Justice in Palestine, Multicultural Solidarity Coalition, and MECHA de ASU had demanded the following:
- 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.
- REDIRECT FUNDING FROM ASU PD TO SUPPORT MULTICULTURAL CENTER AND ESTABLISHMENT OF A CAARE [sic] CENTER ON CAMPUS.
“Even with a not-guilty verdict from a flawed ‘justice’ system – Kyle Rittenhouse is still guilty to his victims and the families of those victims,” the groups said ahead of its protest. “Join us to demand from ASU that these demands be met to protect students from a violent, blood-thirsty murderer.”
Rittenhouse, who is not a convicted murderer no matter what these groups think, has won again in another blow to cancel culture.
It may be that people and businesses are starting to say no to these bully tactics.
