With a jury now being picked for the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, the headlines are flying fast and furious. Rittenhouse is charged with murder for killing two armed Antifa activists last summer in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
He was there to protect the city from violent BLM and Antifa thugs who were burning and smashing everything in sight, following the police shooting of violent criminal Jacob Blake.
Rittenhouse gunned down two individuals who were trying to grab his weapon from him and beat him to death on the street. At the time, the media tried to act like Rittenhouse was some kind of “white supremacist” or other bizarre terms.
Both of those he killed and the third individual he shot were all white; furthermore, one of Rittenhouse’s attackers was also a convicted child molester.
Was Rittenhouse Acting in Self-Defense?
The prosecution is going to try to argue Rittenhouse was looking for a fight and wanted to shoot leftists. The defense will point out – correctly – that Rittenhouse was trying to stop armed thugs from burning down Kenosha. The defense will also note Rittenhouse shot two of them when they tried to kill him.
Rittenhouse was simply trying not to die on a cold Kenosha street for protecting law and order. Can you blame a 17-year-old for pulling the trigger on violent thugs who were trying to kill him?
The fact is legally speaking, whether you hate Rittenhouse or not (and regardless of your political beliefs), it’s looking a lot like an acquittal.
The only real argument prosecutors have is to try and say Rittenhouse’s state of mind was violent and premeditated; they can argue it’s proven by him coming to Kenosha with an AR in the first place.
Even the liberal media has been slowly framing this a bit more cautiously; they know if and when Rittenhouse gets off, liberals will be furious. They are trying to soften the blow because the fact is being upset that two communist punks got shot doesn’t mean you have the law on your side.
BlueAnon leftists defend their hero Alec Baldwin for killing an innocent unarmed woman on a movie set, yet call Kyle Rittenhouse a murderer for defending himself against 3 armed attackers who were going to kill him.

The Defense Argument
The defense argues Rittenhouse brought a gun to Kenosha to stop the violence and looting that was going on last summer. They say he only opened fire when he had no other choice after Joseph Rosenbaum chased him down, along with Anthony Huber and Grosskreutz.
Outnumbered and fearing for his life as Huber started grabbing his rifle from him, Rittenhouse then opened fire, killing Rosenbaum and Huber and wounding Grosskreutz.
While some may argue Rittenhouse’s parents shouldn’t have let him take a gun to a dangerous riot zone, the fact is everything we know so far is on his side. The leftist narrative is insistent, but it doesn’t really have any facts on its side.
Facebook is committing defamation by deleting and suspending accounts that post about Kyle Rittenhouse, an innocent until proven guilty American.
When Kyle wins his case, his attorneys should sue and I would be happy to testify on behalf of Kyle against facebook.
