    When Antifa and BLM came to ravage your city, what did you do? Some seized their chance to loot the nearest Walmart. Others watched helplessly as Democratic mayors and governors let their own communities burn. But among us there are patriots—righteous men of action. Kyle Rittenhouse is one such man. On the night of Aug. 25, as riots engulfed Kenosha, Wisconsin, Kyle Rittenhouse ran toward the danger armed only with an AR-15 and a first aid kit. In an interview just hours before a confrontation that would leave two men dead and another wounded, Rittenhouse told a reporter: "So people...

    I want to thank everyone who has supported my family through these difficult times. Your words of encouragement continue to give Kyle and my family strength as we move closer to trial. Because of your kind donations, I was able to welcome Kyle home on November 20, 2020. With the assistance of the #Fightback Foundation, we were able to raise over two million dollars. Donations were used to retain and fund, at least initially, Kyle's defense team and post the outrageous cash bail of two million dollars that finally set him free. We still have a long way to go...

    The Left last lost their minds over Kyle Rittenhouse in November when he was released on $2 million cash bail. Those who want to eliminate cash bail, like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, said it was an example of our current system being for the privileged. Both Ocasio-Cortez and MSNBC political analyst Mehdi Hasan asked us to imagine if Rittenhouse were a Muslim — would he be allowed to walk free then?
