Kyle Rittenhouse speaks to Tucker Carlson in first TV interview

It’s hard to ignore the yawning class divide between Kyle Rittenhouse and his many critics in the media.

Tucker interviews Kyle Rittenhouse, who gives his version of the events on August 24th.

Highlights include:

“In retrospect, it’s remarkable just how dishonest, how thoroughly and intentionally dishonest the media coverage of the Kyle Rittenhouse story turned out to be.”

“All of it was a lie.”

“Rittenhouse was not a ‘white supremacist,’ he was never in a militia, he never crossed state lines with a firearm. The protest in Kenosha was not peaceful; it was a riot, chaotic and violent. Many of the rioters, by the way, carried guns … Rittenhouse was hardly alone. Rittenhouse didn’t go to Kenosha looking for trouble. His father lived there.”

“Here’s the context: The night before, police in Kenosha had done nothing as the mob burned businesses, including another car lot, all the way to the ground. So, the business owner needed Kyle Rittenhouse’s help.”

“He was looking to a 17-year-old for help, if that gives you some perspective on how bad things were, and he asked for it.”

“As Rittenhouse stood there, rioters threatened his life. Then they attempted to kill him. In the end, Rittenhouse shot three attackers as he tried to run to the safety of the police. A number of media outlets claimed the men Rittenhouse shot were black. In fact, all three were white, and all three had serious criminal records.”

“Again, the media coverage was — from beginning to end — a tapestry of lies. If you watched the trial last week, you know that.”

“It’s hard to ignore the yawning class divide between Kyle Rittenhouse and his many critics in the media.”

“Rittenhouse comes from the least privileged sector of our society. During high school he worked as a janitor and a fry cook to help support his family. Last year he got into college at Arizona State, and he is very proud of it. In the world Kyle Rittenhouse grew up in, it is not a given that kids go to college. It’s not even close.”

“It was upsetting, because Kenosha is my community, and I was just upset seeing my community up in flames.”

“The first time I saw Rosenbaum was the first time he threatened to kill me. I was asking people if they needed medical and he came up to me … and he said, ‘If I catch any of you m-f’ers alone, I’m going to f*ing kill you.’ I’m just asking if people need help on both sides. I was there just to help anybody that needed it, and shockingly, the only people I helped that night were rioters.”

“What I noticed is the rioters were … disassociating with him because he was spewing the n-word around and they just didn’t seem to want anything to have to deal with him.”

“I run around the car because I was going to render first aid to him. I wasn’t able to because there was a mob forming and calling for my execution, and that’s when I try to run to the police line and get to the police, and then I am attacked again.”

“We ended up … turning myself in to the Antioch police department. I had to go to Antioch police department, which in my understanding is the closest police department to Kenosha.”

“I think it was people taking advantage of the BLM movement. I agree everybody has the right to protest and assemble, but I do not agree that people have the right to burn down. I don’t appreciate that people are burning down American cities.”

“I was formally arrested without a criminal complaint being crafted. They didn’t know what they were charging me with yet, they just arrested me at Antioch Police Department.”

“I said, ‘no, the right thing to do would be to turn myself in, I didn’t do anything wrong.'”

Tucker: Politicians want war with Russia

The only question that matters is how does intervening in Ukraine help the core interests of the United States? And of course that is the one question no one in Washington is asking.

Published

on

Tucker asks the questions no one in Washington seems to be asking: What’s our business in Ukraine, and why? Highlights include:

“Just because something seems far-fetched, seems crazy, or seems totally destructive to core American interests doesn’t mean the US government won’t do it. That’s the main lesson at the moment we’re living in.”

“Biden is unpopular, he’s incompetent, and he’s desperate.”

“But more than anything, Joe Biden is weak. He is a pawn of his staff and the hard-eyed ideologues who surround him. Russian is currently involved in a border dispute with neighboring Ukraine. Many of Biden’s closest aides are pushing the United States to get involved militarily.”

“And among the many ironies here is that the Ukraine crisis was largely created by Joe Biden’s own aides and many people like them throughout all levels of the US government.”

“What is this really about? Of course it’s not about ‘democracy,’ for which they have zero respect.”

“Well, in part it’s a hangover from the lunatic Russia hoax that absorbed Washington for three years. Everything about Vladimir Putin is bad, therefore let’s have a war with him.”

“But there’s also a deeper cause here that’s rarely noted. For years Ukranian interests have pumped millions of lobbying dollars into Washington, D.C. to change American foreign policy in the region.”

“Tens of thousands of dollars a month to tell us that Russia is bad and we need to stand with Ukraine … ‘cuz democracy … even as we work to overthrow democracy in Ukraine.”

“The only question that matters is how does intervening in Ukraine help the core interests of the United States? And of course that is the one question no one in Washington is asking.”

“Putin is so bad, we’re gonna cut off natural gas to Western Europe in retaliation against him in December. We’re gonna freeze Germany and Luxembourg and that’s gonna teach Vladimir Putin.”

“If we challenge Russia on its doorstep, we will be defeated. That’s not an if, that’s a certainty. And if we are stupid enough to consider the use of nuclear weapons to rescue our conventional failure, well then, we’re courting the destruction of the known world.”

“We have one interest: That is to prevent a war from breaking out between Ukraine and Russia.”

Dems: Comply or Else

Assert your constitutional rights, and we will punish you. That’s the message coming from Democrats and their January 6th investigation.

Published

on

Tucker calls out the hypocrisy of the January 6th commission, subpoenaing phone and text records from uninvolved persons while shrugging off an announced planned insurrection for tomorrow as a peaceful demonstration.

Highlights include:

“If you’re planning to be in Washington, D.C. tomorrow, your nation’s capital, be careful.”

“Turns out a group of political extremists plans to shut the city down. We’re not guessing about this because they’re not very subtle about what they intend to do. They’re planning ‘disruptive direct action to end business as usual and dismantle this country’s core systems of government.'”

“If you’ve been paying attention for the past year … you’d probably assume our elected officials vehemently oppose this. Their whole job is to oppose insurrecting. Nancy Pelosi tells us that every day … but not in this case.”

“Turns out some insurrections are just fine. It depends on who’s planning on insurrecting.”

“Suddenly, it is a crime to do this, depending upon who you voted for.”

“If you plead the fifth, you’re guilty. What country is this? So, assert your constitutional rights and we will punish you.”

“What you just saw is far more imminently dangerous to our democracy than anything than happened on January 6th itself. It’s not even close, and yet it is by and large being ignored.”

“You don’t have to love Donald Trump to find all of this sickening and scary. Do you really want to live in a country where Nancy Pelosi and Benny Thompson, crazed partisans with no interest whatsoever in the United States Constitution, can seize your bank records, your text messages, your diary, simply because they don’t like who you voted for in the last election?”

“Most Americans do not want to live in a country like that. A country like that is called Haiti, but suddenly it’s America.”

“Other subpoenas from the January 6th commission to phone companies are in progress. They target Americans who have been accused of no crime whatsoever, much less charged with one.”

“The truth is going to come out. They cannot stop it. That is why we are asking for the government and for the judge to release these tapes and let the chips fall where they may. Let the public and let the media objectively look at the evidence here and make a decision about what really happened that day.”

“The truth is on our side. We are not hiding anything.”
