Aubrey Huff Calls Kenosha Shooter Kyle Rittenhouse 'A National Treasure'

Former MLB star Aubrey Huff has called Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse "a national treasure" after the teenager was arrested in connection with the killing of two people during protests Tuesday night.

Huff, a two-time World Series champion with the San Francisco Giants, tweeted Thursday: "#KyleRittenhouse is a national treasure."

#KyleRittenhouse is a national treasure.
— Aubrey Huff (@aubrey_huff) August 27, 2020

A number of responses criticized the athlete, with some branding him "disgusting." One tweet reads: "You're a true piece of s*** and the only reason you say this stuff on Twitter is because you know you'd get taxed on the streets. Enjoy your following, son. One day Twitter will be gone and he will have nothing except a ring from a team that pretends you don't exist."...


What is wrong with these people? I don't know much about Huff but it sounds like this comment is nothing surprising coming from this POS.

9. I would say the white RW asshole ratio in baseball is over 50%

Same for so-called football (the misnamed American NFL type), probably even higher.

Basketball probably not.

12. I have seen multiple interviews with current and ex players in those two sports confirming this

Probably most are not outright fucksticks like this assclown, but still, I bet many are Rethug pricks (especially on fiscal issues). Hell, some players of colour are, especially in 'football' (I am London raised so football to me (and most of the world) is what the US and (for some bizarre reason) Australia call soccer). Look at that POS Burgess Owens running for the House in Utah. Black ex-NFL player and pure Trumpian MAGAt.

I actually would not bicker on baseball being 50-50.

Football I would put money against it.

We are all appalled by this, but keep the focus on where it deserves to be.

Why reduce ourselves to the level of those who do exactly what we are criticizing them for?

He wants more murders. He obviously derives joy out of insane vigilantes going out there and killing people he disagrees with.

4. Absolutely. Huff, Carlson and the police chief are advocating vigilante justice

I just hope the right wing extremist wackos do not feel they are given the green light to do more of this. Please be careful out there.

5. Huff supporter trumps, pro-gun policies, and tradition gender roles. In other words, Huff is a

racist, sexist POS.

From Wikipedia:

Huff has stated support for the policies of President Donald Trump,[131] as well as support for pro-gun policies and traditional gender roles.[132] In November 2019, Huff posted a viral Twitter tweet where he stated that "Getting my boys trained up on how to use a gun in the unlikely event @BernieSanders beats @realDonaldTrump in 2020. In which case knowing how to effectively use a gun under socialism will be a must." The tweet was accompanied by a photo of a smiling Huff wearing a pro-Trump T shirt at a shooting range, holding a used target with many bullet holes in it, and accompanied by two children (presumably his sons) whose faces were out of the frame of the picture.[133]

In early January 2020, Huff was the subject of criticism after a tweet in which, responding to a tweet that talked about invading Iran and kidnapping their women, he wrote: "Let's get a flight over and kidnap about 10 each. We can bring them back here as they fan us and feed us grapes, amongst other things ..."[134][135] Huff later claimed the tweets were satirical, and continued to post similar tweets.[136]

In mid-January 2020, when the Giants promoted Alyssa Nakken to be an assistant coach, making her the first full-time female assistant coach in the history of MLB, Huff tweeted: "I got in trouble for wearing a thong in my own clubhouse when female reporters were present. Can't imagine how it will play out with a full time female coach running around. This has #metoo & #BelieveAllWomen written all over it. Only in ⁦@SFGiants."[137] And then: "Couldn't imagine taking baseball instruction from an ex female softball player. Have fun with that @bcraw35 @bbelt9 @BusterPosey."[138]

His behavior eventually prompted the Giants to ban Huff from a ceremony in 2020, honoring their 2010 World Series championship.[139] The team wrote that its reason was: "Aubrey has made multiple comments on social media that are unacceptable and run counter to the values of our organization."[140] Huff responded to this, saying in part, "My locker room humor on Twitter is meant to be satirical and sarcastic. And it was that type of humor that loosened up the clubhouse in our charge at the World Series title. They loved it then, and it hasn't changed. That's not the issue. It's politics. ... To the Giants board members who seems to think every Giants fan is a Liberal, they aren't." [141]Huff claimed that he was banned because of his support for President Trump saying "If you look at my Twitter account, I'd say about 75 percent of my support [is for] President Trump. So, yeah, absolutely. I have every reason to believe in my heart of hearts it was all about President Trump."[142]

In June 2020, Huff commented on the COVID-19 pandemic, which has killed over 440,000 people world-wide and more than 119,000 in the United States, by calling out people who wore masks to protect themselves from the virus saying "If you want to wear a mask and live in fear for the rest of your lives, that's certainly your prerogative. But the vast majority of well-adjusted, sane, common sense people that aren't sheep and can reason for themselves agree with me. I understand that coronavirus is real. If you have pre-existing conditions, or you're an old person or—and this is going to sound insensitive, but someone has to say it—you're morbidly obese, then stay the fuck home. Just because that is your plight in life, doesn't mean the whole world has to shut down. If I God forbid get the coronavirus, here's what I do: I go home, I get well and I get back and live my life. I would rather die from coronavirus than live the rest of my life in fear and wear a mask.”[143]

10. Rittenhouse is going to be...

a real treasure in prison. They'd better segregate the racist piece of crap from the general population or he's going to be "treasured" like no other.

27. He has another issue being a police hanger on

the white power people in prisons are not Tucker Carson types.

This kid gets off he will be fucked with karma for the rest of his life but in the perverse live version of Idocracy that we now live in now he can be a cult conservative star.

But, if he is convicted he probably does not have a refuge.

The real story here to me is how the poison that is conservatism took what might have been a good kid and led him down this path.

17. Twitter

is culpable for White Supremacist homicide now. They allow the mere existence of accounts like this one, Charlie Kirk, Tucker Carlson, and so many more. The only things they discuss are polarizing, racist issues and that imprisonment or violence is the only solution. The damage is done, and it is irreversible.

20. Giants renioun

The San Francisco Giants are having a World Series team reunion and Huff was uninvited. This was before the Rittenhouse tweet, he blamed management, but the fact is more than of the team said “is Huff going to be there, because if he is I am not coming”.
