This is a 12 minute summary of the Rittenhouse case-trial for those who haven’t been keeping up: https://youtu.be/ykxlfcErSYs
A mentally ill German-American child rapist, named Rosenbaum, chased 17 year old German-American Rittenhouse, who then fell down and shot Rosenbaum and another German-American named Anthony Huber, in self-defense. Huber was a “convicted strangler and domestic abuser”. Yet another German-American, named Grosskreutz, confessed that he had pointed his pistol at Rittenhouse and advanced, before he was also shot. Grosskreutz reportedly worked for the ACLU. Rosenbaum was a Texas German and not a Wisconsin German.
As explained by a Cornell Law School professor:
“One of the deceased, Joseph Rosenbaum, was a clearly violent person who had threatened to kill Rittenhouse, chased him down and went to grab Rittenhouse’s rifle when shot. The other dead man, Anthony Huber, was beating Rittenhouse with a skateboard in a swinging manner when shot. Gaige Grosskreutz, who was wounded, admitted under cross-examination that he ran after Rittenhouse and closed the gap (but denied he was “chasing” him) — and that Rittenhouse only fired on him when Grosskreutz lowered his loaded Glock pistol to point directly at Rittenhouse from three feet away.
Most of this evidence came out of the prosecution case. When the defense called him to testify, Rittenhouse stuck to the same story witnesses told…”
See: “The media framed Kyle Rittenhouse — and won’t come clean even after the prosecution’s case falls apart” By William A. Jacobson, November 11, 2021 7:24pm Jacobson is a clinical professor of law at Cornell Law School. https://nypost.com/2021/11/11/the-media-framed-kyle-rittenhouse-and-wont-come-clean-even-after-the-prosecutions-case-falls-apart/
University of Wisconsin Madison law school was teaching what today is called CRT, thirty years ago. They were teaching guilt by race. However, everyone in this tale, even Judge Bruce Schroeder and the prosecutor, is German-American, which seems to spoil their theory. Are the German Revolutionary 48ers at the root of the leftism of the University of Wisconsin Madison? “Many German Forty-Eighters settled in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, helping solidify that city’s progressive political bent and cultural Deutschtum. The Acht-und-vierzigers and their descendants contributed to the development of that city’s long Socialist political tradition. Others settled throughout the state.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forty-Eighters
The most “terrifying and unnerving” part of the tale is that police officer William Kelly was fired from his job in Virginia AND lost his retirement AND health insurance for anonymously giving $25 to help Rittenhouse with his legal defense fund. Kelly’s wife has or had cancer, compounding the tragic impacts. Kelly seems to be the only non-German-American in this tale: “Norfolk Police Lt. William Kelly was only roughly 10 months from being a 20-year veteran of the department, at which point he would have been eligible to have received his retirement savings without a penalty. He was fired from Norfolk Police Department in April, when he was suddenly left desperate to find affordable health insurance for himself, his wife, who is sick with cancer, and their three kids.” https://www.foxnews.com/us/virginia-police-lieutenant-fired-kyle-rittenhouse-fundraiser

“Rittenhouse is on trial for first-degree intentional homicide and first-degree reckless homicide in the killing of child rapist Joseph Rosenbaum and convicted strangler and domestic abuser Anthony Huber on August 25 last year. Rittenhouse also shot Grosskreutz in the right bicep, which drew a charge of first-degree attempted intentional homicide.” However, as the title of the article indicates: “State’s Witness Confesses He Aimed Pistol, Advanced on Rittenhouse, When Rittenhouse Shot Him” by R. Cort Kirkwood November 8, 2021 https://thenewamerican.com/states-witness-confesses-he-aimed-pistol-advanced-on-rittenhouse-when-rittenhouse-shot-him/
Rosenbaum had sodomized young children (ages 9 to 11), when he was 18: “A presentence report reveals that Rosenbaum committed a range of sex crimes against several boys from the ages of nine to eleven years old, including outright rape.” https://bigleaguepolitics.com/huge-court-documents-reveal-shot-kenosha-rioter-joseph-rosenbaum-was-a-convicted-child-rapist/
The tragic story of Rosenbaum according to the Washington Post. Sexually abused as a child, he became a child abuser. He appears to be a Texas German:
“Hours after he was released from the hospital, Rosenbaum stopped by a pharmacy in Kenosha to pick up medication for his bipolar disorder, only to discover that it had closed early because of the unrest…. The weeks leading up to Rosenbaum’s death had been as chaotic as his life. Raised in Texas and Arizona, Rosenbaum met his father only twice and told his mother that he was molested by his alcoholic stepfather “on an almost daily basis,” according to court documents.
When he was 13 his mother was sent to prison for two years, and Rosenbaum was sent off to a group home, where he began using heroin and methamphetamine, according to court documents. By 18, he was in prison for sexual conduct with five preteen boys, the children of people who had taken him in after his mother told him to leave her house, according to a presentencing report. He spent most of the next 14 years behind bars.
Not long after he was released in 2016, he met a woman in Arizona and fathered a child, but the relationship didn’t last. When the woman fled to Kenosha, Rosenbaum chased her… Three months later, he wrote that he was still struggling to see his child…” Excerpted from “A mentally ill man, a heavily armed teenager and the night Kenosha burned: Cast by conservatives as a battle between antifa agitators and a right-wing ‘patriot,’ this summer’s deadliest protest-related incident was not quite what it seemed”, By Robert Klemko and Greg Jaffe, The Washington Post, October 3, 2020 https://archive.md/Bz0wI
Rather than considering the possible role of worker displacement, welfare policy, and mental illness, in the multi-generational Rosenbaum saga, one so-called conservative writer wants to simply chalk it up to “poor white trash”. People who have no compassion at all, for their fellow countrymen and women, need to stop calling themselves conservatives. Each new wave of immigrants has been stealing jobs from previous immigrants for over a hundred and fifty years, and from American Indians for even longer. This doesn’t excuse more immigration. On the contrary, the US needs to address the impacts of these policies, instead of simply pointing fingers: https://theothermccain.com/2020/11/20/kenosha-joseph-jojo-rosenbaum-and-the-problem-of-white-trash-america/
At least he is calling Germans “white trash” for a change.
How does anyone think that we need to import more people into the United States? Isn’t it clear from the stories, above, that we have enough tragedy and troubles already? Wouldn’t someone suffering from mania, and delusions, be more likely to make this trip? “A 24-year-old Honduran immigrant who’s charged with murder in the brutal stabbing death of a Florida man had crossed the US border illegally months earlier while posing as an unaccompanied minor, an investigation by The Post found. Yery Noel Medina Ulloa was busted Oct. 7 in Jacksonville when he was found covered in blood after allegedly killing Francisco Javier Cuellar, 46, a father of four who had taken in the immigrant who told authorities he was 17…“. https://nypost.com/2021/11/04/illegal-immigrant-who-posed-as-minor-while-crossing-border-charged-with-murder/
Wisconsin is one of the most German states. It has few African Americans:
As of 2000, African Americans “constituted 5.6 percent of the Wisconsin population in 2000. In 2005, African Americans were estimated to number 341,258 of the 5,581,839 residents of Wisconsin”. https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/publications/p4/p45716.pdf
We intentionally chose this data, because there were fewer new immigrants of African ancestry.
Unlike the Pennsylvania Dutch, these Germans are much later migrants and economic migrants or revolutionaries. Rather than immigrating for religious freedom like the Pennsylvania Dutch, these German migrants were seeking cheap farmland. In the case of the 48ers, they were revolutionaries. A later wave was economic migrants.
In 1924, US Civil Rights leader A. Philip Randolph said regarding the post US Civil War immigration wave: “We favor shutting out the Germans from Germany, the Italians from Italy, the Hindus from India, the Chinese from China, and even the Negroes from the West Indies. This country is suffering from immigrant indigestion. It is time to call a halt on this grand rush for American gold, which over-floods the labor market, resulting in lowering the standard of living, race-riots, and general social degradation. The excessive immigration is against the interests of the masses of all races and nationalities in the country — both foreign and native.” — A. Philip Randolph (1924) See: https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2021/02/15/immigration-restrictions-helped-lead-to-dr-martin-luther-king-us-civil-rights-success The US Congress put caps on immigration, as discussed in the article, which helped both immigrant and non-immigrant workers contribute to their own prosperity and that of the whole country, until Congress later opened up the flood-gates again.
“The State of Texas recognized German as having equal status to Spanish from 1846 up until World War I, when Texan education rules were established mandating English-only instruction, requiring children to learn English in school regardless of what was spoken at home.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas_German
“From the beginning of the 20th century through the 1930s, Italian, Irish, Polish, and German immigrants, many of them skilled craftsmen, made their way to the city and contributed to the city’s construction, culture, architecture, music, and literature.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenosha%2C_Wisconsin#European_settlement
Contrary to what this article says, the first wave would have been the Pennsylvania Dutch and related religious migrants to other regions. They arrived mostly prior to the American Revolution, unlike the ones described below: “Most German immigrants came to Wisconsin in search of inexpensive farmland. However, immigration began to change in character and size in the late 1840s and early 1850s, due to the 1848 revolutionary movements in Europe. After 1848, hopes for a united Germany had failed, and revolutionary and radical Germans, known as the “Forty-Eighters”, turned their attention to the United States. / Milwaukee began to grow as a city as high numbers of immigrants, mainly German, made their way to Wisconsin during the 1840s and 1850s. Scholars classify German immigration to the United States in three major waves, and Wisconsin received a significant number of immigrants from all three. The first wave from 1845 to 1855 consisted mainly of people from Southwestern Germany, the second wave from 1865 to 1873 was mainly from Northwestern Germany, while the third wave from 1880 to 1893 came from Northeastern Germany. In the 1840s, the number of people who left German-speaking lands was 385,434, it reached 976,072 in the 1850s, and an all-time high of 1.4 million immigrated in the 1880s. In 1890, the 2.78 million first-generation German Americans represented the second-largest foreign-born group in the United States. Of all those who left the German lands between 1835 and 1910, 90 percent went to the United States, most of them traveling to the Mid-Atlantic states and the Midwest./ Many Germans chose Milwaukee due to its geographic position on Lake Michigan’s west coast. It eventually became known as “the German Athens” (German: Die deutsche Athen). Radical Germans trained in politics in the old country dominated the city’s Socialists political scene. Skilled workers dominated many crafts, while entrepreneurs created the brewing industry; the most famous brands included Pabst, Schlitz, Miller, and Blatz.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Germans_in_Milwaukee
