In an exclusive interview with Granthshala News’ Tucker Carlson, Kyle Rittenhouse talks about the night of the Kenosha riots that led to his arrest, as well as his acquittal by jury and the support of mainstream media and Democrats including President Biden. There was an angry reaction.

Rittenhouse, 18, was acquitted of the shooting deaths of two men, Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum, as well as the wounds of Gage Grosskretz, who he shot through the right bicep, when the defender fired at him. But the pistol was pointed.


Rittenhouse told Carlson that he was staying at a friend’s home during the Kenosha riots and was shocked and upset by the lack of resources provided to the police force in trying to suppress violence following the shooting of Jacob Blake.

“I’m not really sure where [the police presence] Because they definitely had a tough job – but I didn’t really think they got the support they needed,” he said.

“The governor, Tony Evers, failed the community and should have had a lot more resources to help with.”

Evers, a Democrat, was condemned by many observers including then-President Donald Trump for the alleged inaction at the time as the Wisconsin city was engulfed in violence.

Rittenhouse first saw Rosenbaum, whom he notes he had never met, and was struck by the man’s violent nature.

Rosenbaum, a convicted child rapist, appeared to be harassing nearby rioters at the time, Rittenhouse said.

“The second time was actually [I encountered him and] He told the group, he said, this is the second time he has threatened to kill everyone – he said, I’m going to kill you, cut your hearts out and get you out of the N-words.”

When asked by Carlson, Rittenhouse commented that the rioters were “splitting up with him because he was spewing the n-word around and they didn’t want to deal with him.”

He then described the incidents that led him to shoot three people, including Huber, who hit him in the head with a skateboard.

Rittenhouse recounted how, after the shooting, he unsuccessfully attempted to surrender to Kenosha police officers, from where the events took place.

An officer told him to “go home”, which the teen had told Carlson because he had not heard him admit to shooting the rioters.

“I go back to Carsource Lot No. 2, and I tell everyone there what happened. I said, ‘I had to do this.’ I was just attacked. I was feeling dizzy. I was vomiting. I couldn’t breathe.” “We couldn’t – I wanted to turn myself into the police in Kenosha, but I wasn’t able to because they weren’t accepting visitors, apparently with barricades and fences, so we found ourselves at the Antioch Police Department. Changed. .”

Rittenhouse said his hometown police department, south of the state line, is the closest law enforcement agency to Kenosha other than that city’s barracks.

The man now acquitted said he was not inherently political, and that “opportunists” took advantage of him.

“I agree with the BLM movement. I agree that everyone has the right to protest and assemble – but I do not agree that people have the right to be burned … American cities try to spread their message. are,” he said. “I guess there are other ways to turn around and do that.”

Rittenhouse called his initial lawyer, high-profile attorney L. Lincoln Wood and co-lawyer John Pierce, who said he took advantage of them and was incompetent at times.

“I was in jail for 87 days. Lynn Wood was raising money on my behalf, and she kept me in jail for 87 days – disrespecting my wishes, putting me in media interviews I should never have done.” .. with John Pierce; they said I’m safe in jail instead of at home with my family.”

Rittenhouse said that at one point, Pierce claimed he was in a “disorganized militia,” which Rittenhouse called “blatantly false.”

“I didn’t know what a ‘militia’ was.

“I was like, what the heck, and I’m like, no wonder people are saying I’m in a militia. It’s because they portrayed the narrative that they should never have been there,” He told Carlson.

The 18-year-old, however, praised his final counsel, Mark Richards and Corey Chirafisi, to the contrary.

Rittenhouse later told Carlson that given the way the case was covered up, he in some ways did not believe he was actually on trial as a person.

Rittenhouse is accused of killing two people and injuring a third in Kenosha's protest against police brutality last year.

“It was the right of self-defense in the trial. If I am convicted, no one will get the privilege of defending their life against the attackers,” he said. “Apparently for many on the left, protecting their community is criminal.”

Rittenhouse denounced President Biden for projecting him as a “white supremacist” in a 2020 campaign ad.

“Mister President, if I would say one thing to you, I would urge you to go back and look at the trial, and understand the facts before you make a statement,” the Illinois resident said.

“This is genuine malice; defaming my character to say something like that.”

Biden was not alone in the allegations against Rittenhouse. During his trial, House Democratic Caucus Speaker Hakeem Jeffries, himself a critic of mass confinement, declared on Twitter that Rittenhouse should be imprisoned and the key should be “how.”[n] Distant.”
