Kyle Rittenhouse slammed the phoney claims about his case in the media

Kyle Rittenhouse has spoken out about his trial for the first time to set the record straight regarding the phony reporting on his case that has dominated the corporate media.

Speaking during an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, Rittenhouse asserted that his case was about "the right to self-defense."

"This case has nothing to do with race," he said.

On Friday, Rittenhouse was acquitted on all charges against him for shooting three violent rioters, two fatally, during a Black Lives Matter riot last summer.

Democrats and their allies in the media attempted to smear the teenager as a "white supremacist" who was motivated by "racism" to shoot the men - all of whom were also white.

However, the jury found Rittenhouse not guilty and ruled that he acted in self-defense while being attacked by a violent mob.

Rittenhouse told Carlson that he is “not a racist person.”

He said that he supports people who stand up against racism and encourages peaceful protesting.

"This case has nothing to do with race," he said.

"It never had anything to do with race.

"It had to do with the right to self-defense.

"I am not a racist person,” Rittenhouse told Carlson.

"I support the BLM movement … I support peacefully demonstrating.”

"I believe there needs to be change,” the 18-year-old continued.

"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 somebody.”


Rittenhouse told Carlson’s camera crew Friday that the jury made the right decision since “self-defense is not illegal." 

"The jury reached the correct verdict,” Rittenhouse said.

"Self-defense is not illegal and I think they came to the correct verdict and I’m glad that everything went well.

"It’s been a rough journey but we made it through it.

"We made it through the hard part.”

The jury acquitted Rittenhouse of five felony charges Friday for the fatal shootings of Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

The then-17-year-old was additionally charged with injuring Gaige Grosskreutz with his AR-15 style rifle.

Democrat Joe Biden suggested that Rittenhouse is a “white supremacist” by adding a photograph of the teenager in a video that targeted President Donald Trump for “refusing to disavow white supremacists.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki dodged questions raised by Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy relating to the video.

A handful of elected officials referred to the acquittal as “racist,” including Democratic Missouri Rep. Cori Bush, who called the verdict “white supremacy in action.”

"The judge. The jury. The defendant. It’s white supremacy in action,” Bush tweeted.

"This system isn’t built to hold white supremacists accountable.

"It’s why black and brown folks are brutalized and put in cages while white supremacist murderers walk free.”

Twitter has not "fact-checked" Bush's claims or placed a warning label on her post at the time of writing.

On a Friday segment of MSNBC’s “The Reid Out,” guest host Jason Johnson claimed the acquittal made it “open season” for a “white nationalist” to shoot Black Lives Matter protesters.

MSNBC host Tiffany Cross called Rittenhouse a “little murderous white supremacist” during a Saturday segment of “The Cross Connection.”

The Independent also falsely reported Friday that Rittenhouse shot three black men, when in fact Rosenbaum, Huber, and Grosskreutz were all white.
