The “Original Sin” of Kyle Rittenhouse

On the day of his verdict, 18 yr old, Kyle Rittenhouse, stood in a courtroom charged with murder, facing the possibility to spend the rest of his life in prison without a chance of parole. Beating the odds, and the “dream team” consisting of mainstream media, social media, and an alleged US President set out to destroy him, Kyle walked out a free man. Right on cue, the predictable segment of the population erupted in a similarly predictable firestorm of fury:


Ask yourself: what kind of a person deserves their future taken away from them?

Maybe Joseph Rosenbaum, a violent child rapist, was convicted of 11 counts of child molestation and inappropriate sexual activity around children, including anal rape? According to prosecution witness testimony and video evidence at trial, Rosenbaum’s actions reviewed:

“Rittenhouse was initially guarding a business called Car Source that had multiple locations in Kenosha. According to testimony from Rittenhouse’s friend Dominick Black, the teenager repeatedly left the area of the dealership in order to administer first aid and put out fires. At some point, Rittenhouse was separated from his associate, Ryan Balch, and ended up alone.”

Rittenhouse encountered a group that included Rosenbaum. The group had repeatedly set fires over the course of the night, including a dumpster that they attempted to push towards a gas pump. One member of the group, Joshua Ziminski, was armed with a handgun while Rosenbaum was carrying a heavy chain. “Anybody need medical?” Rittenhouse can be heard shouting as he approached the group. About ten seconds later, a member of the group can be heard yelling “let’s get him”  chasing then surrounding Rittenhouse, who was hiding behind a car. “Friendly, friendly, friendly!” Rittenhouse can be heard yelling, indicating that he was not initiating conflict. The group then proceeded to pursue Rittenhouse while Ziminski can be heard yelling “you won’t do **it mother f***er!”

It was around this time that Ziminski discharged his handgun into the air, the first shot fired during the timeline of events. He did this while Rosenbaum chased Rittenhouse across the parking lot, eventually cornering him. Rosenbaum then lunges at the retreating Rittenhouse while yelling “f*** you! grappling to get Rittenhouse’s gun”

The left was not concerned that Rosenbaum was a free man on the day he died.

Maybe a Loudon, Virginia, teenager who routinely exploited “a transgender bathroom” policy, championed by the progressives, to commit sexual assault? No – in the eyes of the left, a member of the “alphabet community” can do no wrong.

Does a high school shooter deserve time in prison? A day after he attempted to murder multiple people in a Texas high school, an 18-year-old Timothy Simpkins was set free – without any outcry from the media. A white school shooter is immediately branded “a mass murderer,” and rightly so. But a black school shooter is a victim of “race, bullying, and mental health” issues.

Not even criminals who are in this country illegally deserve any punishment. The current administration does not think America is doing enough to welcome them, and they are bringing in as many as they possibly can, ushering in “justice” for which American citizens are paying with their lives.

In the eyes of the progressive left, there is no crime severe enough to be punished if you are one of their so-called tribe. Destroying children’s lives, and possibly killing them, by selling lethal drugs, is a nonviolent crime. Contemplating statutory rape of children? You deserve the right and “the dignity” to do soMass stealing on the streets of American cities? California residents should learn to live with “minor inconveniences”. Their governor has “bigger fish to fry” – an epidemic of “teenage vigilantes” in the country.

The only person who the progressive left considers worthy of rotting in a prison cell forever is an American conservative. As MSNBC hatefully described, Kyle is “a white, Trump-supporting, MAGA loving Blue Lives Matter social media partisan, 17 years old” – and that represents everything the left despises. As far as the left is concerned, his life is worthless at best, and dangerous to boot, and he must never be heard from again. The veracity of their claims is inconsequential.

Why do so many people believe what the progressive left say? They lie.

Here is a good summary of the lies the media knowingly told in the Rittenhouse case.

The reason the left hates Kyle Rittenhouse is not because he killed two people.  It’s because he is a traditional American  boy.  For this crime, the left cannot invent a punishment severe enough.

Written by Tatyana Larina

Tatyana Larina comes from my favorite work of poetry.  And that's the only time you'll see me quoting Wikipedia as a source.

I came to the US in 1991, lived in San Francisco for 5 years, and I have a Computer Science degree.  I worked in software industry for several years, later switching to a career of a full time mom, and I never looked back.

In my younger days, I wasn’t a conservative. That is not to say that I was ever a liberal – I was not anything at all. I had no idea that there were such concepts as “conservative” and “liberal”. I did not pay attention to politics at all, and the most political knowledge you would get out of me would be who the US President was, and even for that you had to catch me on the right day.
My first introduction to politics was during the second Israeli intifada in 2002. Unspeakable violence erupted in Israel. Every day dozens of people were killed. Even though I didn’t follow politics, that deeply affected me. I felt sad, frustrated, and powerless. And one night, I happened to stumble on an MSNBC program called “Alan Keyes is making sense.” He was talking passionately about Israel and the violence, and he addressed my feelings very well.  Since that evening, I turned on Alan Keyes every night, and by his commentary he was able to take away some of the frustration and anger that I had. It was like a nightly therapy session.
Feeling intrigued after watching Alan Keyes, I wondered what else MSNBC had in store. I switched through the channels, and low and behold, I found Scarborough Country. Right off, Joe Scarborough wasn’t what he is today at all. He was a solid conservative (as I now understand), making common sense conservative points. I found him interesting and engaging. Opposing liberalism had not entered my mind at that time. I still didn’t know anything about liberalism. It was just the things he said sounded very common sense and worthwhile to me. Imagine that at some point, MSNBC had a conservative host on the air. Crazy times, ha?
Exploring my new political universe, I switched through more channels, and one night I found FOX. O’Reilly Factor was on. From the very first night, I was hooked. I abandoned Scarborough. O’Reilly was not just common sense – he was aggressive, and he was a fighter. He was Scarborough on steroids. He wasn’t just talking – he was taking on what he thought to be wrong and unjust. Ever since the first time, and until untimely end of Bill’s FOX career, I don’t think I ever missed one Factor.
For forming my political views, and my ability to formulate them, I have to give special credit to three people: Charles Krauthammer, Bill O’Reilly, and Greg Guttfeld.  To Charles - philosophy.  To Bill - realistic and pragmatic approach to politics.  To Greg - realization that a good joke will change more minds than a long lecture.
And for everything else, thanks to my family.

  1. In my opinion, Kyle should not have been in Kenosha at the scene of the unrest, but he was and he was clearly the prey of the two men he shot while defending himself. They should not have been there either and they were both idiots for going after a person with a rifle. They died being stupid criminals. Kyle should quietly try to go about his life and not become a hero of gun owners and not speak at the 2024 Republican National Convention.

  2. Sadly , Kyle’s original sin is being a member of a culture of Americans, primarily male Americans who gave away their dignity ,pride, honor and freedoms to a mob long before that mob physically materialized in streets during the Rage of Summer riots. No, Americans laid down on the railroad tracks willingly long ago as the runaway mob train of politics, Hollywood, media , academia , and narcissists mowed down the backed over , every traditional value that supports a culture with moral tone. Grown men and Women threw Kyle under the train and every other Kyle along the way. It has been a track of capitulations and degrading what it means to be an American along the way.

    Kyle is the outlier unfortunately. Even in “Conservative circles” in hush tones they capitulate to the mob and despite the man being found completely innocent -still express some sense that Kyle was guilty. ” Kyle should not have been there ” Stockholm syndrome nonsense. Or my personal favorite is ” Sure Kyle did not mean to kill anyone but his decision to be in Kenosha set the events in motion.”

    Free men who follow the law do not live in that world of thinking. Free men do not alter their lives much less give them over to mobs. The mob was the catalyst to why property was under credible threat of being burned to the ground and lives were in harms way, not Kyle. The runaway train above was the catalyst that created the mob , enabled them and empowered them to crush the freedoms of all Americans – not Kyle.

    The reality that so many Kenoshian’s sat in the comfort of their homes an anonymity after nights of lawlessness destroyed their city allowing in their silence government and police to abandon them -does NOT make Kyle the one with poor judgement. It makes Kyle the decent and heroic Free Man Living In America. Shame on all who paint BLM on their store fronts and house entries in some cowardly act of appeasement.

    Kyle could have been 45 or 17 makes no difference. Kyle was a free man who knew his rights and the difference between wrong and right. It is legal and righteous to ensure the mob does not terrorize citizens and destroy livelihoods in the complete absence of law enforcement. If there were none like Kyle, 17 year old men capable of defending freedom – We would all be speaking the Queens English!

    All those so – called “Conservatives or Americans” who have been so programed to question such acts of manhood which literally secured our nation and 25 years ago would have been hailed in the public square by the majority as patriotism and Good citizenship- ARE in fact the systemic infection destroying out Republic.

    Kyle Rittenhouse exemplifies what it is to be a man and those who stubbornly cling to any notion that he was irresponsible and made a bad choice to act as a free man that evening should do some deep reflection.

    Damn right I have strong feelings on the subject matter.

    My Grandchildren will be raised in a country where the concept of the free man no longer serves as the beacon of hope, opportunity , and freedom from tyranny…
    And guess what?

    This tragedy which my ancestors will inherit will be caused not by the Kyle Rittenhouse’s of this world but by those who keep bellying up and laying on the tracks, even repositioning themselves in a more advantageous contortion for maximum mayhem to please the mob.

  3. You are right, Mrs. Lyons. It brings satisfaction that there are people who think as you do. I hope your children inherited your sagacity and fire.
