I've resolved to take a long break from commenting on the Kyle Rittenhouse case. But only after I share with you a truly insightful essay from Grayson Quay. For everyone who is questioning whether Kyle should have been Kenosha on that August night, few have considered what they may have in common with the young man.

The identity politics ideologues sure are quick to deny that their brand of collectivism is being taught in public schools. Still, some educators insist that parents have no right to question such teachings--even if they don't exist.
