OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.
I wrote about Kyle Rittenhouse today and, in my opinion, how he appeared to be acting in self-defense when he shot three men in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
“The outcome in the Kyle Rittenhouse case will have long-lasting effects on American gun policy and self-defense issues in America.
“Rittenhouse was being chased by multiple men carrying deadly weapons like guns, bricks, and Molotov cocktails.
“Rittenhouse was seen on video throughout the day, scrubbing the sides of buildings and cleaning up glass and debris in parking lots.
“It wasn’t a natural disaster that destroyed these buildings. Kenosha was attacked by domestic terrorists.”
Now one of the men he shot has allegedly told one of his comrades:
“So the kid shot Gaige as he drew his weapon and Gaige retreated with his gun in hand. I just talked to Gaige Grosskreutz, too; his only regret was not killing the kid and hesitating to pull the gun before emptying the entire mag into him. Coward.”
It sure sounds like Gaige had an intent to kill Kyle, which would suggest Kyle’s actions were in self-defense.
According to journalist and undercover reporter, Andy Ngô:
“The third who was shot (& survived) is Gaige Grosskreutz, 26. He’s a member of the People’s Revolution Movement. He was filmed chasing after the teen w/a pistol. He was shot at close-range in the upper arm. He has a criminal record that includes being intoxicated & armed w/a gun.”
Now that it is confirmed Joseph Rosenbaum was one of the people shot and killed by alleged gunman Kyle Rittenhouse in Kenosha, I filmed him earlier in the night taunting the armed civilians, saying, "Shoot me, n***a." pic.twitter.com/Nn2encm78Y

Do you have enough evidence now? Is this enough for you to defend Kyle?
Some are perfectly content saying that Kyle was too young to be out of the house, while in the same breath praising boys just as young going off to war to spill their blood on foreign soil.
Some will get it, and some won’t. Vote for Donald.
