Exclusive — Ret. Navy SEAL Jonathan Gilliam on Kyle Rittenhouse: ‘Everything He Did Was Textbook Perfect’
breitbart ^ | 24 Nov 2021 | ROBERT KRAYCHIK

Kyle Rittenhouse’s conduct on August 25, 2020, in Kenosha, Wisconsin, was “textbook perfect,” Jonathan Gilliam, retired Navy SEAL, former FBI agent, and author of Sheep No More: The Art of Awareness and Attack Survival, said.

Gilliam stated, “When he had his weapon and he was confronted by these imminent threats of loss of life or serious bodily injury, he engaged in a proper manner to eliminate the threat. You didn’t see him out there hammering people down, mowing people down. It’s when the threat got too close and it posed an imminent threat … he took action.”

Rittenhouse was not “praying and spraying in a total reaction,” Gilliam added. “If you look at who these people were that he actually shot, and what their actions were, and how he was trying to get away, and they came after him, everything he did was textbook perfect.”

“Even when he was on the ground, he was not engaging people unless they engaged him,” he remarked. “It was perfect.”

Rittenhouse’s control of his firearm was “amazing,” Gilliam emphasized. “[He] held his weapon properly … kept his weapon in his hands when he was getting beat [and] when he was running. He wasn’t sweeping people. He didn’t drop his gun, He held onto it and maintained positive control the whole time with his finger off the trigger.”

Leftist riots would have been prevented had thousands of Americans followed Rittenhouse’s example to defend the peace, Gilliam held.

Videos of Rittenhouse shooting his attackers revealed “great weapon-handling skills,” Gilliam concluded.

For a kid, he handled himself very well. Much better than most people.

I said at the time last year that he did a military maneuver. It was perfect. Thank God for him or he wouldn’t be alive today.

Since the day I first saw it, I’ve been in awe. It was almost like instinct combined with intense training.

Florida voters dogged the bullet with the other Gilliam. Unfortunate how close he came to De Santis’ job. It’s the left. They’re more tight with each other even though they hate everyone including themselves. It shows hate is a stronger emotion and it’s an easier path to take.

I’ve had some informal firearms training so I don’t consider myself to have any expertise at all. Kyle was so good he, along with the man who neutralized the church shooter in Texas could get together and teach a great course.

Kyle needs to move to Alabama or a similar place for his own safety.

I felt the same when I watched the videos and I’m glad this person commented about what happened.

It wasn't that perfect because one of his attackers walked away.
