(DCWatchdog.com) – In a statement that has Americans on both sides of the political aisle wondering if they were wrong about their assessment of Kyle Rittenhouse and his political beliefs, Rittenhouse has come out publicly as a supporter of the Black Lives Matter social justice movement.
Last Friday, Rittenhouse was found not guilty of all five criminal counts – including murder – stemming from race riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August of 2020.
As reported by The Hill publication in Washington, DC, Rittenhouse said, “I’m not a racist person. I support the BLM movement.”
The statement came during an interview that Rittenhouse did with Tucker Carlson of Fox News. Portions of the interview are scheduled to air tonight on the Tucker Carlson Tonight show.
Reportedly, Rittenhouse also stated, “I support peacefully demonstrating. I believe there needs to be change.” And he commented on prosecutorial misconduct, saying, “I believe there’s a lot of prosecutorial misconduct, not just in my case but in other cases. It’s just amazing to see how much a prosecutor can take advantage of someone.”
