Armed BLM protesters join the Socialist Rally for ‘Justice’ in Kenosha

A group of people armed with pistols and semi-automatic rifles attended a socialist group march in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Sunday. Protesters called for “justice” after a jury on Friday acquitted Kyle Rittenhouse of all charges.

A group of about 50 protesters gathered outside the Kenosha County Courthouse on Sunday to march against what they called an injustice in a jury’s decision to find Kyle Rittenhouse innocent on all charges. The group gathered around the banner of the Party for Socialism and Liberation.

Four gunmen joined the group, which said they were from Chicago. The group appeared to have crossed state borders to march with two semi-automatic rifles and several handguns.

One of the armed protesters, Eric Jordan, came to the rally with his 16-year-old daughter, Jade. Both came to the protest armed with semi-automatic rifles. Eric also openly carried a gun.

Eric Jordan told Breitbart News that he came to provide security for the planned march in Kenosha. When Jordan was asked if he expected resistance, Jordan replied, “Just be careful, we need everyone to get home safely.” He also stated that he is a veteran.

His daughter, Jade, expressed disappointment at the innocent verdict handed down to Rittenhouse on Friday.

“I was at least disappointed,” Jade said. “That means he may still be legally able to get a gun.”

Both rifles showed orange “empty chamber indicators” to indicate that they did not have a round chamber in the rifles.

The father and daughter joined the rest of the marches, which were led through the streets of downtown Kenosha by Jacob Blake’s uncle, Justin Blake. The riots in Kenosha last summer followed an incident in which Kenosha police officers shot Jacob Blake during a domestic dispute. The shooting left Blake paralyzed. Prosecutors refused to prosecute the officers involved in the incident.

The shooting of Jacob Blake led to days of uncontrolled riots in Kenosha. Kyle Rittenhouse responded to the riots by volunteering to protect Kenosha companies that were threatened. He ended up shooting three people and killing two in self-defense, the jury ruled Friday.
