Leftists and their allies in the disgusting ‘enemy of the people’ media are at it again, fomenting hate and division and stoking a civil war as they spread one lie after another about the young man who allegedly shot and killed two rioters in Kenosha Tuesday while wounding a third.
“The video of that kid shooting protesters and then walking right up to police without consequence. is beyond enraging. F**k white supremacy. F**k the Kenosha police department. F**k AR-15s. F**k Boogaloo Boys. F**k the NRA. F**k this,” wrote ‘comedian’ Michael Verdi, in a typical tweet.

Literally the only thing he wrote that’s true is that the alleged shooter, identified as 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse of nearby Antioch, Ill., used an AR-15 to defend himself against a mob of anarchists who were armed with at least one handgun and blunt objects.
“A member of the white supremacist #BoogalooBoys shot multiple protesters in #Kenosha. Although he had an AR15 he was not confronted by police or SWAT but ignored & allowed to walk out of the area. @KenoshaPolice shoot unarmed Black men but see armed white men as allies,” ‘Bishop’ Talbert Swan lied on Twitter.

There is no evidence that the suspect is anything at this point — and certainly no evidence he is part of a ‘white supremacist’ group. Also, the Boogaloo Boys aren’t a ‘white supremacist’ group anyway — but the KKK is, and Democrats founded that group.
But it didn’t stop there:
These militias are domestic terrorists looking to incite a race war. “Protecting private property” is cover for their agenda.

Armed white supremacists, who have been cooperating with police to suppress and brutalize protesters, murdered two people and shot a third in Kenosha last night. https://t.co/kVIf3i39Eb

Notice how Leftists never condemn the rioters.
In any event, as Big League Politics notes:
However, there is no evidence that the shooter was a white supremacist or involved in any type of violent extremist activity. There is plenty of evidence, however, showing he was acting in self-defense when confronted by the mob.
Video posted by journalist Ian Miles Cheong shows that the mob was throwing projectiles at the fleeing individual before he was forced to shoot at rioters:

But do you know what there is evidence of? Democrat neglect.
Democrats who run every other major U.S. city rocked by ‘peaceful’-not-peaceful ‘protests’ this year cleverly disguised as rioting, looting and vandalism who allowed it to continue instead of clamping down hard on the offenders from the beginning enabled the deaths in Kenosha.
That a 17-year-old boy thought it was necessary to show up, armed, in a city to help protect businesses that were not being protected by the city and a neutered police department is an abomination. And Democrats are to blame.
“The chaos that began with the first George Floyd protests on Memorial Day has reached its inevitable and bloody conclusion,” Fox News’ Tucker Carlson said during his program Wednesday, in reference to the deaths in Kenosha.
He proceeded to show clips of the shootings and then of the rioting, burning and violence that has followed the police incident involving Jacob Blake – a shooting that is looking justified since Blake told investigators he had a knife on the floorboard of his SUV.
Kenosha devolved into anarchy because the authorities abandoned the people. Those in charge, from the governor on down, refused to enforce the law. They’ve stood back and watched Kenosha burn. Are we really surprised that looting and arson accelerated to murder? pic.twitter.com/oul2KUiDi3

“People in charge from the governor of Wisconsin on down refused to enforce the law. They stood back and watched Kenosha burn. So are we really surprised this looting and arson accelerated to murder? How shocked are we that 17-year-olds with rifles decided they had to maintain order when no one else would?” he added.
There are reports that the alleged shooter, Kyle Rittenhouse, once belonged to a youth police cadet program. But there is zero evidence that he, or anyone else who showed up in Kenosha to protect property, are “Boogaloo Boys,” “white supremacists,” or “right-wing militia” members. And to say otherwise, at this point, is libelous.
