Kyle Rittenhouse Says Lawsuits Coming

Kyle Rittenhouse Says Lawsuits Coming [Details]

In an appearance on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Kyle Rittenhouse discussed a new project he is working on, as well as the lawsuits he will be filing against people who have lied about him.

The Story of Kyle Rittenhouse: Condensed

Everyone remembers the story of Kyle Rittenhouse. It was all the media could talk about for months, although all they did was lie about the details. Rittenhouse was part of a group of people who went to Kenosha, Wisconsin — where he worked and often hung out, about a 15 minute drive from his home in Illinois — to protect the city and offer aid to people during the deadly Black Lives Matter-ANTIFA riots in the Summer of 2020. Kyle, who was 17 years old at the time, was carrying a first aid kit to help others and a rifle — which he borrowed from his friend who lives in Kenosha — to protect himself and deter violence. While at the riot, he was attacked and chased by Joseph Rosenbaum, a convicted pedophile and member of the BLM mob, and Kyle was forced to shoot and kill Rosenbaum in self-defense. He was then chased by several other members of the mob, and was forced to shoot two more people, Anthony Huber, who hit him with a skateboard, and Gaige Grosskreutz, who pointed a pistol at him. Huber died at the scene, and Grosskreutz’s bicep was blown off, but he lived. Rittenhouse was arrested and charged with two counts of first degree homicide, attempted first degree homicide, two counts of reckless endangerment, and one count of unlawful possession of a firearm.

Luckily, he was found not guilty on all charges.

Appearance on Fox News

Speaking with Tucker Carlson, Kyle Rittenhouse announced his new initiative “The Media Accountability Project” — a group that will be used to hold “members of the media accountable” for lies and defamation like what Rittenhouse had to go through before, during, and after his homicide trial in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in 2021.

“So for over a year, media outlets in this country lied about Kyle Rittenhouse in an effort to have put behind bars for the rest of his life. They called him a white supremacist, which he is not. They told us he crossed state lines with an AR-15, which he did not, and therefore he was a terrorist,” Carlson said, before playing a montage of MSNBC guests including known race-baiter Reverend Al Sharpton accusing Rittenhouse of embodying white supremacy.

“White supremacy – no one he shot was not white, everyone involved in the story was white, of course, but it’s white supremacy,” Carlson commented sarcastically.

“They’re lying to put the kid in prison for the rest of his life. What they just told you there are lies. Rittenhouse’s mother didn’t drive him across state lines with an AR-15; he borrowed the gun from a friend in Wisconsin. He lived about 15 minutes from Wisconsin. He worked in Wisconsin. So, the question is, after a full year of watching these people lie in order to imprison a kid for the rest of his, who’s going to hold the liars accountable?” the Fox News host asked.

He then brought on Rittenhouse to talk about the issue, stating: “Kyle, thank you so much for coming on tonight. I can’t think of many people who’ve been at the receiving end of this much sinister lying from so-called news organizations as you have. How are you going to respond?”

“Well Tucker thank you for having me,” Rittenhouse responded. “Me and my team have decided to launch the ‘Media Accountability Project’ as a tool to help fundraise and hold the media accountable for the lies they said and deal with them in court.”

“Interesting, so the idea is — maybe like the Covington Catholic kids — you will be suing news organizations that maliciously lie about people who are in the news? Is that the plan?” Carlson asked.

“Yes, sir. We’re going to be holding them accountable, Tucker,” Rittenhouse replied.

“I guess I have to ask kind of a dumb question, why isn’t there a group like this that exists already since the media so often are not observers, they’re players, they’re participants in the news? Why hasn’t somebody done this before?” the Fox News host asked.

“That’s a good question, Tucker, and I’m not sure, to be honest,” Kyle answered. “But I don’t want to see anybody else have to deal with what I went through, so I want to hold them accountable for what they did to me, because I don’t want to see anybody have to go through what I went through.”

“Yeah, I mean they tried to imprison you for the rest of your life. It wasn’t coverage, it was advocacy. You have a lot of potential targets to sue, yourself. Will you be suing any of these news organizations, and if so, when?” Carlson asked.

“Well, right now we’re looking at quite a few: politicians, celebrities, athletes,” Rittenhouse said. “Whoopi Goldberg is on the list, she called me a murderer. After I was acquitted by a jury of my peers, she went on to still say that. And there’s others, don’t forget about Cenk from The Young Turks, he called me a murderer before verdict and continues to call me a murderer.”

“Interesting. And what about the people who called you — groundlessly — a white supremacist, which makes it pretty hard to get a job for the rest of your life, if you’re a white supremacist, will you be responding to them?” Tucker asked.

“They’re all gonna be held accountable, and we’re gonna handle them in a courtroom,” Rittenhouse responded.
