Kyle Rittenhouse is the 17-year-old who allegedly killed two people and wounded another in Kenosha, Wisconsin, after being mobbed and attacked by rioters.

In a comment to Breitbart News, [Mark] Dice said he was being deliberately careful about what he posted, because he guessed that Facebook had added Rittenhouse to its infamous “dangerous individuals” list.
Truth be damned, there’s an election on! How else can the left win, except by telling more egregious lies — like Trayvon Martin, hands up don’t shoot, George Floyd (who said “I can’t breathe” 11 times before the cop kneeled on his neck, because he was dying of a drug overdose), and now Kyle Rittenhouse. The case is settled. No further correspondence will be entered into.
Rittenhouse a mass murderer? Another big lie.
Rittenhouse killed two and injured one. The first person he shot was grabbing for his gun, after shots had been fired nearby, after a mob had been chasing him and calling out death threats.
The second shootings occurred after Rittenhouse was chased again, then tripped and fell. One of the mob kicked him in the head, another went to whack him with a skateboard, and a third with a handgun was menacing him. He shot one dead from the ground, and he shot the man with the handgun in the arm but did not kill him. See for yourself, and note the atmosphere of menace:
I’m pretty sure there is a good case for self-defence. But people who rely on Facebook will never know.
