Social media exploded over Kyle Rittenhouse’s complaint that his attempts to contact President Joe Biden have been met with “crickets, nothing.” The uproar demonstrated exactly why the young man began The Media Accountability Project (TMAP).
Rittenhouse, 19, sat down for a discussion with Jenna Ellis, a former senior legal adviser for President Donald Trump, to talk about how his life has been since his acquittal. He was found not guilty after shooting three protestors, killing two of them, during the 2020 riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
Despite his acquittal, he has continually been dragged through the mud and the persistent defamation from the media and campaign propaganda from Biden has led him to be fearful to participate in normal activities.
“I’ve been alright, but it’s been a little difficult,” he explained.
“With all the false narratives that were put out where people called me a white supremacist, a murderer, a racist and all those other lies,” Rittenhouse detailed, “I don’t know if somebody has seen one of those articles or watched one of those new stories.”
“So, it worries me to go out in the public, to go to the grocery store, to go to the dog park with my dog because I don’t know if somebody saw that. I don’t know if they’re gonna have a preconceived notion about who I am and attack me or harass me because of the false lies that were put out,” he expressed.
Examples of the verbal attacks continue to appear on social media.
The murderer Kyle Rittenhouse is now the GOP shining star. The GOP loves their murderers, pedophiles, and treasonists. The Grand Ole Party is gone! #GOPtheRussianParty

Kyle Rittenhouse killed two men in cold blood and got off scott free, he should sit down, STFU and thank his lucky stars he’s a free man because thousands of people of color have been locked up for longer for a whole lot less!

"Kyle Rittenhouse" is another young malignant narcissist and psychopath that thinks he is important
these right wing MAGA fascists have some serious mental problems
why would Joe Biden want to talk to a murderer

Rittenhouse brought up his desire to speak to Biden because of the frequency with which the young man’s image was used during the campaign to spread vitriol against Republicans.
Some of that material was included in the launch video for TMAP.

“I was attacked,” Rittenhouse told Ellis. “I was 17 years old. I was attacked and had to defend myself. I’m not a racist. I’m not a white supremacist. I’m not a domestic terrorist. I’m not a murderer, and anybody who wants to sit down and have a conversation, I’m more than open.”
“I reached out to Joe Biden several times, crickets, nothing,” he recounted. “He still hasn’t replied. So it just shows how much of a man he is to not sit down and talk to a 19-year-old.”
The left continues to call him a murderer and behave as though he thinks he has an entitlement issue for defending himself.
why does Kyle Rittenhouse think that Joe Biden needs to answer his phone calls, who even is Kyle Rittenhouse to think that he is owed time from the President of the United States

What the hell does an 18 year old punk like Kyle Rittenhouse have to say worth hearing considering his only claim to fame is being a POS murderer? Absolutely nothing.

Kyle Rittenhouse shouldn’t be having a conversation with anyone but guards at a federal prison.
The fact that he thinks he deserves a conversation w/the president is so astounding. White privilege at its utter worst.
My apologies as a white person. good freaking god. FFS.

He defended himself in Kenosha and he continues to defend himself to this day for the vile smearing that persists.
Jenna Ellis shared a tweet after the interview to simplify the matter for those who continue the dangerous narrative.
It’s incredible that people are still calling Kyle Rittenhouse a “murderer”(a legal definition) when he was ACQUITTED after due process.
This is exactly why our Founders, in their wisdom, ratified the Bill of Rights.
KYLE IS NOT GUILTY.

As the hateful rhetoric continues, it is apparent that the only entitlement presented is that from the left. They continue to get away with these smears at all levels of society and Biden can get away with never speaking on the matter.
In contrast, Trump invited Rittenhouse and his mother to Mar-a-Lago where the group enjoyed burgers. “The meeting was phenomenal…it was amazing, as you know Trump is just a normal guy. He just wanted to sit down and have a conversation,” the young man detailed.”
“He defended me from day one and he got a lot of hate for it,” he went on, “and he still stood by my side. He spoke on the facts and he didn’t let the media narratives push their agenda.”
The Republicans admiration for Billy the f*cked up Kid Kyle Rittenhouse is nauseating.

Kyle Rittenhouse actually thinks the President of the United States should spend time talking to him. For what possible purpose?
— W. M. (@Minuteman04) March 29, 2022
Wait, murderer Kyle Rittenhouse is upset the President of the United States isn't answering his calls? Uh, you're not special dude.

Throughout the remainder of the interview, Rittenhouse discussed appearances he has made since his acquittal and his gratitude for his reliance on God. As previously reported, he intends to make sure no one else has to suffer these kinds of injustices again which is why he is starting TMAP.
“I don’t want to see anybody else have to deal with what I went through. So I want to hold them accountable for what they did to me,” he said after the announcement of his project, “because I don’t want to see anybody have to go through what I went through.”
Kyle Rittenhouse didn't murder anyone and if you think he did you are a delusional degenerate pic.twitter.com/gsyharuAG3
