Christian fundraising site has earned over $250,000 for alleged Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse

Rittenhouse, an Illinois resident, has been identified in these videos and can be seen talking with police and holding an AR-15 style rifle. He was interviewed by a reporter for the Daily Caller, telling the reporter that people “were getting injured and our job is to protect this business.”

In one video, police can be seen handing out water bottles to the armed men and thanking them for their presence.

“We appreciate you,” said one police officer.

Later that night, after leaving the dealership, video posted on social media appears to show Rittenhouse being pursued by protestors. A shot is fired by someone in the crowd, and a person identified as Rittenhouse then turns toward the shot and fires multiple times, appearing to shoot a man in the head. He then flees and is pursued by several protestors.

    There are no words. It’s just totally and completely mind-boggling. 🤪

    But then, many of us have seen and experienced the pure ignorance and idiocy of some Christians on other occasions so I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised.

      Hello Nan. Was just over reading Jill’s blog. Seen and liked your response to Scott. I did leave him a response that the web site he linked was incredibly wrong. Right wing media has the two guys shot and killed as hardened criminals and sex offenders, but I checked and couldn’t find them on any registry in the any of the states mentioned and couldn’t find any real criminal history for them. Another right wing smear job to blame the victim. A couple days ago on Jill’s blog I asked him if it was OK for police to be judge, jury, and even executioners and reminded him of due process as you did in your reply, but he never answered me.

      When I listen to the rhetoric coming from the right about the protesters where they have the small amount of fires / looting on a loop of constant play with the hosts and authors saying over the top stuff like it is the end of our civilization and the police are unable to protect people and property because of the liberal Democrats in office while never mentioning the reason for the protests is because POC are dying at the hands of law enforcement because of their skin color, I am stunned. The hype and driving of emotion is incredible. It is no wonder the religious and the right are making heroes of the kid. But notice none of these same SPTV and right wing media sites show the illegal acts the tRump supporters did driving through down town Portland and attacking peaceful protesters with paintball guns and high flow pepper spray. Hugs

        It wouldn’t matter if these guys OR ANYONE ELSE had a record a mile long … or if they were the worst kind of offenders. None of this gives this kid — or anyone else — the right to pass judgment by KILLING them!!!

        Amazing, isn’t it, that the Christians will defend this kid for KILLING adults, but heaven forbid that a woman might terminate a pregnancy.

          Hello Nan. Yes great point. At what point do these religious people stop putting property before life, if they are really pro-life? But I forget that what most ministries really are about is money / property and not people. After all if it was really about the people, faith healers wouldn’t be doing Sunday morning shows, they would be in hospitals curing the sick. Hugs

            I just read a brief bit on Trump’s visit to Kenosha — There were several on hand from both sides. One man was standing with a Black Lives Matter sign and an older lady came up to him and started telling him that Black lives don’t matter, all lives matter.

            What I would like to know is this — if All Lives Matter, then why isn’t there more outcry and press on the WHITE protesters that got shot by the teenager? Why isn’t this old lady horrified at this killing? Why isn’t the news media talking about them?

              Hello Nan. I agree. I think the slogan all lives matter really means white lives matter more. If all lives mattered they would agree that black lives matter because it is part of all lives. I have tried to argue with people that say that with the facts that black people are being slaughtered and disrespected/ abused by police due to their skin color in ways that white people are not and in far greater numbers. It doesn’t work because to them it really is not about facts, it is not about black people being mistreated, abused, and killed for no reason and police getting away with it. To these people black lives matter is about elevating a lower class to equal status as themselves, equal to white people. That seems threatening to them greatly, and they hate that idea. That was the great fear about Obama winning the presidency was that blacks would be equal to whites and would be more in charge and have more authority. That is why white racist like McConnell vowed to do everything they could to destroy Obama so they could say black people can not be president and lead well.

              It is a matter of demographics that soon white people will no longer be a majority of the population. That is one reason they feel the need to minimize the POC and their lives so that even as a minority the white people can still rule as a majority. Just like the Republican party is a minority party but stays in charge. Hugs

                I totally agree with all you’ve written about black people — but here is my point. If it had been a POC that killed these two white men, we would have been bombarded with information about them! As it is, I had to google who they were. Both were young men — one was 26 (a heavy-duty skateboarder) and the other was 36 with a two-year-old daughter.

                So it all goes back to the same old crap — POC are ALWAYS guilty simply because of skin color whereas a white 17-year old kid gets “blessed” by the Christian community.

                  Hello Nan. Well said, very well said. I think you are 100% correct. Hugs

        Re: Portland — someone on FB posted a number of pictures of downtown AND the area of dissension … and all was totally quiet. He said the protests usually start around 10:00 PM and are peaceful until around 1:00 AM … when the trouble-makers come out of the woodwork.

          Hello Nan. Sounds like the gay bar Ron had when we first met, everything was calm until about an hour or so before closing. Then trouble makers would try to come in, and at closing the assholes that bash the gays would come out and need to be driven off. Did you notice the president has been asked a dozen times about his supporters in Portland shooting and pepper spraying people on sidewalks and he wont disavow them or say anything bad about them. So it is again the idea of you are pro-tRump anything you do is great, if you are anti-tRump you deserve to die a horrible death. We now live in a fascist nation. Hugs
