Kyle Rittenhouse has been released from jail on a $2 million dollar bond. The media and leftists have attacked the donors to his bail fund, including Mike Lindell of MyPillow, of supporting racism and white supremacy. There has been no evidence that Rittenhouse is affiliated with white supremacists or that his motives were racist.
According to Breitbart, Kyle Rittenhouse has been released from jail, with the help of multiple donors. Rittenhouse’s lawyer, Lin Wood, mentioned Mike Lindell, CEO of MyPillow, as one of those who contributed to the bail fund.
After the news of Rittenhouse’s bail was released, critics quickly attacked those who donated to Rittenhouse’s bail fund. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, “For people who say ‘systemic racism doesn’t exist, this is what it looks like: protection of white supremacy baked deep into our carceral systems. Law and disorder.”
Regardless, there has been no proven evidence of Kyle Rittenhouse acting from racist intent, or being connected with white supremacy groups. The defense given by Rittenhouse’s attorneys was that he was helping to guard a business, and was attacked, leading to a necessary act of self defense. According to CBS, Rittenhouse will have a hearing on December 3rd.
“Kyle is SAFE. Thanks to all who helped this boy.” — Attorney Lin Wood, Twitter.
