Left Demands New Judge in Rittenhouse Trial over Claims Schroeder Is a 'Patriot'
Liberals complain Judge Bruce Schroeder is patriotic and call for replacement
Liberals are demanding that the judge in Kyle Rittenhouse's murder trial be replaced over allegations he is a "patriot."
On Wednesday, outraged calls emerged from the Left after Kenosha County Circuit Court Judge Bruce Schroeder's phone rang in court and revealed he has a patriotic ringtone.
The "God Bless the USA" tune quickly triggered many on Twitter, who slammed the "white judge" for allowing Rittenhouse to "defy justice" by using "his white privilege card."
Some even likened the trial to a "Trump rally" and accused Judge Schroeder of playing the "MAGA national anthem" in court.
However, the calls for Schroeder to be replaced came as the final nails were slowly hammered into the coffin of the prosecution's "murder" case on Wednesday.
On Wednesday, Judge Schroeder berated the assistant district attorney for Kenosha County in what many saw as a sign that the case was possibly headed towards a dismissal by a mistrial.
In response, many on the Left latched on to the idea that the judge's ringtone was evidence that he was biased in favor of Rittenhouse.
Among those was the former White House photographer during the Obama administration, Pete Souza, who tweeted, "Mistrial. Assign a new judge."
The incident was captured by some on video and circulated on social media.
"Schroeder doesn't seem to care about maintaining even a veneer of fairness," said Democratic activist Lindy Li.
"He's outright performing for the Fox News lemmings."
"Apparently, the judge in the Rittenhouse case has Lee Greenwood as his ringtone," tweeted writer Bryan Behar.
"That's literally the MAGA national anthem.
"Can't we just jump ahead to the appeal?"
"Laying odds Rittenhouse defies justice with his white privilege card," said one critic.
"Which, to his amazing luck, is accepted by the white judge with the Trump Rally opening song as his ringtone."
"'God Bless the USA' is the opening song played at every Trump rally," tweeted author Mikel Jollett.
"Lee Greenwood literally sang it at Trump's inauguration.
"It is the ringtone of the judge in the Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial."
"The judge's ringtone this afternoon is the cherry on this turd of a trial," read one tweet.
