Woke Arizona university students demand ‘violent murderer’ Kyle Rittenhouse is ‘withdrawn’ from campus despite jury finding him NOT guilty
- Rittenhouse was cleared after shooting dead two white men at BLM protest
- He revealed during his testimony that he was an ASU student
- Alliance of left-wing student groups are demanding the ‘murderer’ be booted
- They further demand ASU disavow Rittenhouse and ‘white supremacy’
Woke students at Arizona State University have demanded that ‘blood-thirsty’ Kyle Rittenhouse be booted from the college after he was acquitted of murder.
Rittenhouse, 18, was cleared after shooting dead two white men and wounding a third at a Black Lives Matter protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August 2020.
He revealed during his testimony earlier this month that he was an ASU student.
The university have since confirmed he is enrolled as an online student – a position he could have kept even if he was convicted, because criminal background checks are not required to take online classes.
But an alliance of left-wing student groups, The Arizona State University Students for Socialism, Students for Justice in Palestine, Multicultural Solidarity Coalition, and MECHA de ASU, are demanding that ‘murderer Kyle Rittenhouse’ be withdrawn from the university.

The band of liberals have a string of three further demands: that the university release a statement denouncing ‘white supremacy’ and ‘murderer Rittenhouse’; that they back a ‘multicultural safe space on campus’; and that they redirect funding from the ASU police force to support the aforementioned ‘safe space from white supremacy.’
‘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 letter says.
‘Join us to demand from ASU that those demands be met to protect students from a violent blood-thirsty murderer.’
They plan to hold a ‘rally and protest to get murderer Kyle Rittenhouse off our campus’ on December 1.
A Students for Socialism spokesman said that ASU must understand that other students do not feel safe with a ‘mass shooter’ being admitted.
‘The goal of these demands is to let the ASU administration know that we as the ASU community do not feel safe knowing that a mass shooter, who has expressed violent intentions about ‘protecting property’ over people, is so carelessly allowed to be admitted to the school at all,’ the spokesman told Fox.
‘Our campus is already unsafe as is, and we would like to abate this danger as much as possible.’
Rittenhouse’s lawyers successfully argued that the teenager was acting in self-defense when he shot dead Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, Anthony Huber, 26, and wounded Gaige Grosskreutz, now 28.

He took the stand to describe how he was in fear of his life after being attacked by protesters who threatened to kill him.
Following the verdict, President Joe Biden said he was ‘angry and concerned’ but appealed for calm.
Last year, he branded Rittenhouse a ‘white supremacist’ during his campaign to defeat Donald Trump.
Republicans have accused the president of ‘slandering’ Rittenhouse, while conservative commentators such as Sean Hannity suggest Biden could be guilty of defamation.
