Former congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard continues to go against the grain of the Democrat Party.
While most Democrats are calling the Rittenhouse verdict a travesty, Gabbard applauded the verdict.
Gabbard, after the verdict was issued, simply stated, “The jury got it right.”
Against the Grain
Anyone with common sense could see that Rittenhouse was acting in self-defense.
The narrative that since he came armed removes that defense is utterly ridiculous.
In reality, had the police not turned the city over to rioters, Rittenhouse and the rest of the members of the community that defended businesses from rioters would never have been needed.
To that point, after the verdict was released, Gabbard tweeted…
The jury got it right—finding Rittenhouse not guilty on all charges. The fact that charges were brought before any serious investigation is evidence that the government was motivated by politics, which itself should be considered criminal.

Gabbard has been very vocal on this case…
Pro-antifa MSM’s biased reporting of Rittenhouse trial was disgusting. No interest in facts. They smear anyone who disagrees with them politically (esp those who express love for our country) as white supremacists or domestic terrorists. They should be ashamed, but they’re not. pic.twitter.com/kl6i8ki3hF

The outrage by most Democrats in this case is for one reason and one reason only… this verdict means people have a right to defend themselves and their property against rioters.
