Tucker Carlson: Kyle Rittenhouse Speaks For Many of Us

In retrospect, it’s remarkable just how dishonest, how thoroughly and intentionally dishonest the media coverage of the Kyle Rittenhouse story turned out to be. All of it was a lie. Rittenhouse was not a white supremacist. He was never in a militia. He never crossed state lines with a firearm. The protest in Kenosha was not peaceful. It was a riot, chaotic and violent. Many of the rioters, by the way, carried guns. Rittenhouse was hardly alone. Rittenhouse didn’t go to Kenosha looking for trouble. His father lived there. Rittenhouse himself worked as a lifeguard in Kenosha.

On August 25th of last summer, Rittenhouse went downtown to stand guard over a car lot. Here’s the context: The night before, police in Kenosha had done nothing as the mob burned businesses, including another car lot all the way to the ground. So the business owner needed Kyle Rittenhouse’s help. He was looking to a 17-year-old for help, if that gives you some perspective on how bad things were. And he asked for it. As Rittenhouse stood there, rioters threatened his life. Then they attempted to kill him. In the end, Rittenhouse shot three attackers as he tried to run to the safety of the police. A number of media outlets claimed the men Rittenhouse shot were Black. In fact, all three were white and all three had serious criminal records. We could go on. Again, the media coverage was from beginning to end a tapestry of lies. If you watched the trial last week, you know that.

But what about Kyle Rittenhouse himself, what is he like apart from his testimony in court? Few Americans have ever heard his voice. Over the next hour, we’re going to let Kyle Rittenhouse speak for himself. You can make up your own mind what you think.

But before we start one observation which you can’t resist making, it’s hard to ignore the yawning class divide between Kyle Rittenhouse and his many critics in the media. Rittenhouse comes from the least privileged sector of our society. During high school, he worked as a janitor and a fry cook to help support his family. Last year, he got into college at Arizona State, and he’s very proud of it. In the world Kyle Rittenhouse grew up in, it is not a given that kids go to college. It’s not even close.

During the course of our long conversation, Kyle Rittenhouse struck us as bright, decent, sincere, dutiful and hardworking exactly the kind of person you’d want many more of in your country. He’s not especially political. He never wanted to be the symbol of anything. Kyle Rittenhouse just wanted to keep violent lunatics from setting fire to cars. In the America he grew up in. That was considered virtuous. So if Rittenhouse seems a little bewildered at points during our interview, thinking back over the last year and what happened to him, that’s probably why. A lot of the things he assumed were true about this country turned out not to be true at all. So in that way, he speaks for many of us.

    Kyles case:
    o Pro 2A
    o Self Defense
    o Values
    o Respect
    o Justice

  • MAGA says:

    He’s everything that the talking heads on CNN and MSNBC are not. And they hate him for it.

  • Louis Galmarini says:

    Kyle’s life will never be the same. The left will continue their non-stop harassments via court case hearing after court case hearing, filing motion after motion against him. Frivolous motions. Frivolous court cases, w/ NO credible evidence to speak of – NONE…and it will continue FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE. It’s what the left does. It’s their playbook. They smear you, defame you, lie, cheat, and demean you…and if they win, objective/narrative is met. If they lose, they continue w/ the harassments(s).
    So what’s the answer for Kyle? There is only one answer: If he wants peace in his life he has to fight fire w/ fire. For each case which is filed against him, he needs to find out whose responsible for it and HAVE THEM KILLED. If he doesn’t use this strategy – he will never have peace.

    • Richard Mundy says:

      Murder is never the answer Louis!

      • Phyllis White says:

        Agreed, Richard! Suing the sh*t out of them is a much better way to go! He’ll have plenty of money to do it, too, when he wins case after case!! Nicholas Sandman is helping to guide him through that, I think. lin wood should be ashamed of himself for his abuse of this amazing young man!
        Wouldn’t it be cool if Nicholas and Kyle got together, pool their funds and either buy out cnn or create their own news network and make it invincible to any of whoever is running the lefty-state media!!! I would just LOVE to see that!!! A perfect “stick it up your collective behinds, lamestream media” move! hehehe

    Were the three criminals chasing from Kenosha? No one has done any real investigation of who and why the rioters were.
