Here is the accounting of what has happened so far with Kyle Rittenhouse defending himself against 3 (or more) assailants. All of the “arguments” complaining about this have been easily answered in this blog post and this video.
- In EACH instance, Kyle was RUNNING AWAY from the attacker
- He did not cross state lines with a gun (and so what if he did?), it was lent to him from one of the other people there that were protecting the property
- In the first instance, video shows the 1st attacker, Joseph Rosenbaum, a convicted Sex Offender THREATENING and then throwing something(initial reports were that it was a molotov cocktail or brick, later shown to be a plastic bag with a water bottle) at Kyle, and then CHASING HIM
- In the 2nd shot, the attacker, Anthony Huber, convicted felon (after 2 others attacked him) assaulted Kyle and tried to take his gun
- 3rd shot was from an attacker Gauge Grosskeutz, another felon, who was going to attack, Kyle pointed the weapon at him, and the idiot STILL tried to attack him…and got shot…AND he (a convicted felon) had a handgun on him. Even spoke about it after all of this.
If you can still think he is in the wrong after all of this, you suffer from cognitive immunization and there is no hope for you.

Kyle interviewed right before everything happened:
First attacker threatens (and asks to be shot):
Short “shoot me” request:
What apparently “triggered” Joe against Kyle specifically:
All the other attacks on him:

It seems that everyone that has a bone to pick with Kyle, are OK with the outcome from a guy, Robert Cobb, 71 who was trying to stop damage to his business. And listen to the girl at the end JUSTIFYING it…..
Here is the lunacy of the left, a video has surfaced of Kyle (who has no record), after initially being slapped by a girl and walking away, after his (assumed) friend gets into a fight, he punches a girl. The SAME people that are calling Kyle a woman beater are glossing over these facts:
- Jacob Blake was convicted of sexual assault on a minor, had an arrest warrant for sexual assault, actively fought the officers who were to stop him from assaulting a woman, etc.
- Defended himself against a convicted child molester who was actively assaulting him
- Defended himself against a convicted multi female assault and batterer who was actively assaulting him
- Defended himself against a convicted burglary felon who was actively assaulting him
- Did NOT shoot the person (right after he shot the felon who had a gun pointed at him)
- Joe Rosenbaum is using the “N word” multiple times
This is the mental gymnastics that the left will go through to justify their craziness. You have a mental disorder, cognitive immunization.
