Yesterday, Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty on all charges after the Kenosha riots in August of 2020. Rittenhouse faced five charges of first degree reckless homicide, first degree reckless endangerment, first degree intentional homicide, and attempted first degree homicide as well as a weapons charge. After the verdict, members of antifa took to the streets and began rioting and attacking journalists. Andy Ngo Reports–
“#Antifa threatened & attacked @KATUNews crew in downtown Portland at the anti-#Rittenhouse riot. Because of sustained threats & assaults like this, most news crews don’t send reporters to cover the antifa events, leaving few who do at more risk”.
In the wake of the Kenosha riots, GoFundMe took down Rittenhouses fundraising page, barring people from donating to his legal defense. They offered a clarification on Twitter yesterday, saying “GoFundMe’s Terms of Service prohibit raising money for the legal defense of an alleged violent crime. In light of the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, we want to clarify when and why we have removed certain fundraisers in the past”. GoFundMe donated $500 to Riot Kitchen, a radical left wing group that offers support to left wing riots across the country.
During the Rittenhouse trial, left wing activists attacked Rittenhouse supporters as well as journalists covering the case. On the third day of deliberations, a man was arrested outside the courthouse for carrying a knife. George Floyd’s nephew, Cortez Rice, has issued veiled threats to the jurors in the Kyle Rittenhouse case, with the support of Unicorn Riot, an antifa affiliated organization. “I ain’t even gonna name the people that I know that’s up in the Kenosha trial,” Rice said. “But it’s cameras in there. It’s definitely cameras up in there. There’s definitely people taking pictures of the juries and everything like that. We know what’s going on.” “so we need the same results, man.” said Rice in a video
