Right-wing militia groups and the proud boys are planning to host an event in Salt Lake City, Utah to honour Kyle Rittenhouse. According to sources, they decided on a rally venue at Washington Square downtown on Dec 4 at noon. They will display flyers with writings like patriots and citizens at assembly, promoting the motto to defend your cities. Organizers are asking attendees that they must bring 2A flags, banners, freedom flags, and firearms.
Last summer, Rittenhouse was charged with many felony charges, including brutally shooting two men and one injured during a protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Amidst the civil unrest, he drove from his residence in Illinois to Kenosha to provide entrepreneurs with legal help in defending their enterprises.
According to him, he used his AR-15 as a self-defense weapon to kill the three men.
Judge Bruce Schroeder ordered that prosecutors do not disclose how Rittenhouse was associated with the Proud Boys given pictures of him in the bar with many members of the white supremacist group that appeared on social networks.
Following that, Rittenhouse was exculpating all charges, including first-degree deliberate assassination, first-degree felony murder, attempted first-degree homicide, and aggravated assault.
Rittenhouse spoke to Fox News’s Tucker Carlson more about the case as well as how he embraces the Black Lives Matter movement after the jury returned a not guilty plea.
He clarifies that this is an entirely uncommon situation and has no links with race. I did it all in my self-defense and he is not a racist at all. He said more that he supports peaceful protests and Black protection movements.
The jury concluded the matter as self-defense is legal and Mr. Rittenhouse is innocent. I’m relieved that everything went smoothly. We got through the troublesome part.”
