Four student groups — Students for Socialism, Students for Justice in Palestine, Multicultural Solidarity Coalition, and MEChA de ASU — released a statement recycling tired and untrue tropes about Rittenhouse while demanding his expulsion from the school.
The groups are planning a rally for Dec. 1 "to get murderer Kyle Rittenhouse off our campus." Rittenhouse, however, is not a murderer — he was acquitted of all criminal charges against him, including two counts of first-degree murder — nor can ASU administrators remove Rittenhouse from the Phoenix-based university campus because Rittenhouse is an online student.
In an invitation for the rally posted to Instagram, the groups also listed several demands:
-Withdraw Kyle Rittenhouse from ASU;
-Release a statement against white supremacy and racist murderer Kyle Rittenhouse;
-Reaffirm support for the multicultural center on campus as a space safe from white supremacy; and
-Redirect funding from ASU [Police Department] to support the multicultural center and establishment of a care center on campus.
-The groups then bashed the justice system for not delivering the outcome in the Rittenhouse trial they wanted and claimed that Rittenhouse "is still guilty."
