Republican’s Embrace of Kyle Rittenhouse

Title from YouTube: “Kyle Rittenhouse’s murder trial has made him the favorites of some right-wingers looking to get in good with the GOP base”.

Description from YouTube: “A number of Republican candidates, elected officials, and other influential conservatives have lionized Rittenhouse in recent days. And while some have stuck to arguments that he’s been unfairly maligned in the media and acted in self-defense when he shot three people in Kenosha in August 2020, others have gone much further, portraying him as a vigilante hero”.

IMO, Kyle Rittenhouse (who was 17 at the time) is not totally responsible for his actions… it’s his parents for teaching him right-wing ideology, for allowing him to have a AK-47 and to be in a potentially dangerous situation where active protests were happening.  Incredible that no one has mentioned this… no one in the news media or in the trial.

Also, it seems that Republicans have been on Rittenhouse’s side because they are 2nd amendment gun nuts, they embrace violence, AND they’re glad Rittenhouse shot & killed protestors who they feel are probably Democrats. This is just another way of “Owning the Libs” which they are celebrating.
