While I support our inalienable rights to self-defense, justice, our Constitution, and fairness, I find that there is something unseemly about the backroom machinations regarding the defense of Kyle Rittenhouse.

(1)  It appears that Kyle Rittenhouse supports the Black Lives Matter movement and peaceful demonstrations.

Kyle Rittenhouse was interviewed by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, his first media appearance since he was found not guilty of all five charges against him in his murder trial. In a clip from that interview released by Fox News, Rittenhouse insisted that his actions “had nothing to do with race,” and expressed support for the Black Lives Matter movement and peaceful demonstrations. <Source>

Sorry, I cannot be sympathetic or support anyone supporting a communist front group like Black Lives Matter and their agenda to destroy our inalienable rights, our nation, our Constitution, and everything American. As for peaceful demonstrations, BLM appears to be behind every protest that turned into an orgy of rioting, looting, arson, and the wanton destruction of public and private property.

(2)  It appears that the Rittenhouse defense team had an embedded Fox News film crew, “driven in part by the effort to crowdfund Rittenhouse’s legal defense.”

Speaking to CNN’s Chris Cuomo after the verdicts were rendered, Rittenhouse attorney Mark Richards noted, “I did not approve of that,” replied Richards. “I threw them out of the room several times. They were — and I’m not suggesting that Fox or some other network — I don’t think a film crew is appropriate for something like this. But the people who were raising the money to pay for the experts and to pay for the attorneys were trying to raise money. And that was part of it. So, I think–I don’t want to say an evil, but a definite distraction was part of it. And I didn’t approve of it, but I’m not always the boss.” <Source>

While most journalistic media organizations claim that they do not pay for interviews, it is a little-known fact that they license production materials like photos and other material” as a means of funds transfer.

(3)  It appears that the slimy L. Lin Woods was involved with the initial defense effort and may have used Rittenhouse to boost Woods’ notoriety, fundraising efforts, and other causes.

Lin Wood is trying to claw back the $2 million he raised for Kyle Rittenhouse's bail

The right-wing lawyer and conspiracy theorist Lin Wood is seeking to take back $2 million his foundation raised from donors to post bail for Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager accused of shooting three people at Black Lives Matter protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, court documents show.

A September 17 letter said the funds to free Rittenhouse on bail had been provided by Wood's #FightBack Foundation, and therefore must eventually be returned to the foundation.

The letter was signed by a lawyer, Xavier Solis, who said he was working on behalf of #FightBack. Wood and another conservative attorney, John Pierce, launched the foundation last year to support Rittenhouse, though the organization later pivoted to funding efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election.

"The Rittenhouse bail was paid by #FightBack Foundation, a 501(c)(4) non-profit, from donations it received," Wood told Insider Thursday in an email. "Under law, the bail monies must be returned to #FightBack."

Rittenhouse and his family have since cut ties with Wood, Pierce, and #FightBack, and said they never received a full accounting of all the money that was raised in Rittenhouse's name. <Source>

(4)  There may be big bucks at play.

Following the egregious and erroneous portrayal of Nick “The Covington Kid” Sandmann in the media, Sandman filed multi-million dollar defamation lawsuits against media organizations. Although a non-disclosure agreement covers the exact settlement amounts, several prominent media organizations such as CNN, The Washington Post, and others reached agreements with Sandmann’s legal team. The resolution of other cases involving NBC News, ABC News, CBS News, Rolling Stone, Gannett, and the New York Times are unknown.

Bottom line…

I wish Kyle Rittenhouse protection against manipulation by nefarious individuals monetizing his notoriety for their financial interests or to advance their partisan political agenda. Essentially turning Rittenhouse into a repugnant, loathsome slimy character like David Hogg, one of the many survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting who turned into a monetized gun control advocate.

There is no doubt that Kyle Rittenhouse suffered a life-altering traumatic experience that need not have happened except for the political ambitions of a progressive communist democrat prosecutor and an overtly hostile media. I hope that he finds some measure of peace and doesn’t become a media Hogg.

The real danger comes from the progressive communist democrats and their media propagandists who continue to distort and racialize the Kyle Rittenhouse self-defense shooting – including lying about the proven details of the case.

To see how disgusting the progressive communist democrats are, you may wish to watch Tucker Carlson’s post-verdict program. (Not to be confused with the upcoming interview presentation.)

We are so screwed when our politicians and media openly and knowingly lie to our faces. This is not by accident or caused by incompetence -- it is an attack on American and American citizens on behalf of our enemies, both foreign and domestic.
