Rittenhouse Defense Releases New Video That Clearly Proves Self Defense
Written by R. Cort Kirkwood
The prosecution of Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old lifeguard who shot and killed two violent criminals and injured a third during a riot in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on August 25, is more than state-sponsored legal terror.
It’s an attack on the right of every American to defend himself against the Antifa/Black Lives Matter terrorists now ruling the streets of American cities, argues a video from the FightBack Foundation.
The video explains why Rittenhouse was in Kenosha and why he had to shoot: Deranged Marxist criminals attacked and might have killed him.
“Every decade or so, a legal matter arises that holds the power to negatively affect our lives for generations to come,” the video begins. “Regardless of what side of the political spectrum you identify with, this is about you.”
Describing the Kenosha riots that left businesses and hundreds of cars across the city in flames or otherwise destroyed, the video explains that Rittenhouse and other “good Samaritans” assembled to protect what was left.
“So people are getting injured,” Rittenhouse explained in a video.”Our job is to protect this business. Part of my job is also to protect people. If there’s somebody getting hurt, I’m running into harm’s way. That’s why I have my rifle, because I need to protect myself obviously. But I also have my med kit.”
That day, Rittenhouse helped scrub graffiti from the city’s Reuther Central High. But that night, “tensions began to rise as protesters set a dumpster ablaze, then began pushing it toward a gas station.”
One of the arsonists was Joseph Rosenbaum, the child rapist who ranted at one of the volunteer guards.
But “moments later, just down the street, Joseph Rosenbaum is seen starting more fires.”
Upshot: Rosenbaum, convicted of sodomizing little boys in 2002, had an excuse to burn, loot, and, perhaps, murder.
“Around that same time, Kyle Rittenhouse was spotted running with a fire extinguisher,” the video explains. “With his face concealed, Rosenbaum emerges, chasing after Rittenhouse.”
The video then shows Rosenbaum’s pursuit, and “a single gunshot is fired by a protester identified as Alexander Blaine,” whom the video calls a “Sin City Disciples gang member” and “amateur porn actor.” The Sin City Disciples is a 1 percenter, multi-racial motorcycle club.
The child rapist trapped Rittenhouse between two cars, the video explains:
Directly in front of Rittenhouse, armed with bats and other weapons, a mob is forming a barricade.
With no way out and no way to know who fired that shot, Rittenhouse turns to face Rosenbaum.
Reporter Richard McGinniss, who filmed the attack, explains that Rosenbaum “was lunging for the barrel of the rifle.”
Rittenhouse fired four times, the video explains, but “seconds later, three additional shots are fired by an unknown shooter…. With a total of eight shots fired, it remains unclear that all four of Rosenbaum’s wounds were caused by Rittenhouse.
Then the angry rioters began shouting for an attack on Rittenhouse, who ran toward police vehicles.
“Cranium that boy,” a bloodthirsty rioter shouted. “He just shot a man!”
“‘Cranium’ is street slang calling for someone to take Rittenhouse out with a headshot,” the video explains.
As Rittenhouse continued down the street to get police, another violent rioter struck him from behind in the head. Rittenhouse fell, and then another rioter tried to jump on him. Rittenhouse fired two shots into the air. After that, convicted strangler and domestic abuser Anthony Huber attacked:
[He] strikes Rittenhouse in the back of the head with a sharp edge of a skateboard, then reaches for the rifle. Rittenhouse fires a single shot, striking the man in the chest.
A third protester fakes as if he’s surrendering, then suddenly advances with a handgun aimed at Rittenhouse. A single shot strikes the man’s right bicep.
That third man was Gaige Grosskreutz, who, as The New American reported and the video explains, told a friend that “his only regret was not killing the kid and hesitating to pull the gun before emptying the entire mag into him.”
“When a fourth protester raises his arms in surrender, Rittenhouse exhibits remarkable judgment by not firing his weapon,” the video explains. “As Rittenhouse moves toward police, multiple gunshots explode behind him.”
Rittenhouse surrendered to cops the next day.
Despite the hate-Rittenhouse message from the media, “no evidence has materialized” to show that Rittenhouse is a “far right radical, a vigilante, a militia member, and a white supremacist,” the video explains.
The Kenosha County district attorney charged Rittenhouse with first-degree reckless homicide for killing child rapist Rosenbaum, first-degree intentional homicide for killing strangler Anthony Huber, attempted first-degree intentional homicide for shooting gun criminal Grosskreutz, and first-degree reckless endangerment of reporter McGinness.
But “not one of his attackers faced a single charge,” the video observes.
The Rittenhouse defense team has raised more than $1.8 million of a $5 million goal, the FightBack website says.
They’re After You
But again, Rittenhouse is not the ultimate target. “It’s not Kyle Rittenhouse they’re after,” FightBack’s video concludes. “Their end game is to strip away the constitutional right of all citizens to defend our communities, our personal property, our lives and the lives of our loved ones.”
FightBack founder Lin Wood released a similar video that demolished claims about Nicholas Sandmann after he stood up to a “Native American elder” and fake war hero who tried to bully him at the Lincoln Memorial at the March for Life in 2019.
The Rittenhouse video, YouTube states, “has been identified by the YouTube community as inappropriate or offensive to some audiences.”
