GoFundMe Removes Fundraiser for Kyle Rittenhouse

'Kyle Rittenhouse is not a vigilante but a citizen who attempted to help in a city in chaos...'

GoFundMe removed the fundraiser for Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old who was arrested and charged with murder after killing two men in Kenosha, Wisconsin last week, Reclaim the Net reported.

“Please help me save our son Kyle! He did nothing wrong, he is being railroaded by the state,” the GoFundMe said before it was censored.

At the same time, GoFundMe, as a company, is calling Anthony Huber, whom Rittenhouse killed, a “hero” and is promoting his fundraiser.

“Here is the verified GoFundMe to support the family of Anthony Huber—the hero who gave his life attempting to take down a gunman in Kenosha & save others. All funds will be sent to Anthony’s partner & stepdaughter,” wrote GoFundMe on Twitter with a link to the campaign.

Kyle’s father, Tom Rittenhouse, launched the fundraiser to pay for Kyle’s legal defense fees because he was charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide, two counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety and one count of possession of a dangerous weapon by a person younger than 18 years old.

Lawyer L. Lin Wood, who represented Nicholas Sandmann in the Covington Catholic case, said he would represent Kyle as part of his “mission to protect and defend our Constitution on many fronts.”

The video of the shooting shows that Rittenhouse was attacked as he was running away from a few men.

Even the New York Times’s description of the video supports the conclusion that Rittenhouse acted in self-defense.

“While Mr. Rittenhouse is being pursued by the group, an unknown gunman fires into the air, though it’s unclear why. The weapon’s muzzle flash appears in footage filmed at the scene,” the article said.

“Mr. Rittenhouse turns toward the sound of gunfire as another pursuer lunges toward him from the same direction,” it continued. “Mr. Rittenhouse then fires four times, and appears to shoot the man in the head.”

The College Republicans at Arizona State University , who launched a new fundraiser for Rittenhouse, said he was simply trying to help citizens and protect property from the violent rioters.

“Kenosha has devolved into anarchy because the authorities in charge of the city abandoned it,” the group said.

“They stood back and watched Kenosha burn,” added the group. “Kyle Rittenhouse is not a vigilante but a citizen who attempted to help in a city in chaos.”
