Star Trek actor Jonathan Frakes, known for his role as William T. Riker, took to Twitter to weigh in on the ongoing Kyle Rittenhouse trial.
Frakes shared a meme featuring a quote from The Daily Show host Trevor Noah criticizing Kyle Rittenhouse’s decision to protect the city of Kenosha amidst violent riots.
Back in August 2020, Noah stated on his YouTube channel, “No one drives into a city with guns because they love someone else’s business that much. That’s some bullshit.”
No one has ever thought, ‘Oh it’s my solemn duty to pick up a rifle and protect that T.J. Maxx. They do it because they are hoping to shoot someone.”
Frakes shared a meme with Noah’s quote to Twitter and provided his own commentary stating, “Noah speaks the truth.”

Trevor certainly doesn’t speak the truth and all Frakes’ commentary does is expose himself as someone who is completely ignorant.
In fact, according to John R. Lott and Ruhun Wang of the Crime Prevention Research Center there are over 21.52 million concealed handgun permit holders in the United States of America.
Surely, many of them carry those weapons into cities and businesses every day and they aren’t shooting anyone. How is that if what Trevor Noah says is truth? It’s because it’s not truth and the teensiest bit of common sense and critical thinking proves it a falsehood. Clearly, Frakes has none of the above.
The whole idea on its head is completely silly. Just because you carry a firearm does not mean you would have the intention of shooting someone.
Police officers carry firearms every day and many of them do not shoot anyone with them. Again, how is that possible? Trevor Noah told me the “truth” that they would clearly be shooting everyone they saw. Again, it’s a total crock and shows that Trevor Noah and Jonathan Frakes are smallest of mental midgets out there.

Not only is the idea that carrying a firearm mean you plan on shooting someone silly, but mocking someone’s desire to want to protect their homeland from looters and arsons is just plain wrong and dare I say evil.
It’s actually virtuous to want to protect your homeland and city from violent thugs, pedophiles, criminals, and looters.
People’s livelihoods were ruined during the riots in Kenosha, but ivory tower talking heads like Trevor Noah and a washed up actor like Jonathan Frakes couldn’t care less.
They are more worried about scoring woke social media points with idiotic logic rather than acknowledging the fact that people are willing to defend their neighbors and their homes from violent criminals and they have the wherewithal to know when to use a firearm and when not to.
Aside from the weak logic, Kyle Rittenhouse testified saying, “I didn’t intend to kill them. I intended to stop the people who were attacking me.”
He further clarified, “I did what I had to do to stop the person who was attacking me.”
Rittenhouse later said, “I brought the gun for my protection. I didn’t think I would have to use the gun and end up defending myself.”
