Kyle Rittenhouse to Sue Biden for Libel According to Lawyer

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- Lin Wood is the world-class lawyer who is part of the defense team of Kyle Rittenhouse. Kyle was charged by a Democrat prosecutor in Kenosha for defending himself from multiple attackers who attacked him and attempted to disarm him. Wood won large settlements for his clients against slander in the media.

In spite of the efforts of enormous numbers of social justice warriors on the Internet, none of them have been able to make any connection between Kyle and white supremacists or an organized militia. The clear case for self-defense is made in an eleven-minute video.

If the attackers who Kyle shot did not wish to be harmed, all they had to do was to stop pursuing and attacking him. Kyle Rittenhouse was fleeing pursuit both times he was attacked.

In the Presidential debate on 29 September, both Chris Wallace, the moderator, and former vice president Joe Biden implied that Kyle Rittenhouse was a white supremacist and a militia member. After the debate, if the tweet is authentic, candidate Biden tweeted Kyle's image with the words “white supremacist” above and “as we saw in Kenosha” below.

Lin has tweeted he is preparing a formal demand for Biden/Harris to retract the claim that Kyle Rittenhouse is a white supremacist & militia member. I have not seen any evidence there were any white supremacists in Kenosha. There may have been a hasty creation of a near spontaneous militia to protect local businesses and homes from being burned down. There is no evidence Kyle Rittenhouse was a member of a militia, any more than anyone who showed up at the Kenosha riots to prevent the destruction of property.

There was no evidence that any militia which showed up was white supremacist or violent.

If anything, the people who showed up to protect property were there to prevent violence.

There is no evidence shown that Kyle, a minor, was or is a white supremacist.  Kyle is not a public figure. Vice President Biden cannot claim that as a public figure, he can smear Kyle without any consequence.

It is nearly as hard to see how Chris Wallace can claim there was “White Supremacist” violence in Kenosha.  Wallace can claim he was not referring to Kyle Rittenhouse's self-defense shootings. If he was not referring to them, what was he referring to? The attacks against Kyle?

I believe Lin Wood can force Wallace to, at minimum, clarify that. The account Lin Wood has set up, Fightback.law, makes sense. From Fightback.law:

We fight back for forgotten America. We stand ready to protect and defend the constitutional rights, livelihoods and property of people and businesses that are being targeted and destroyed.

Chris Wallace has an out. He can say he did not mean or mention Kyle Rittenhouse.  What he did mean then becomes problematic.  If he disavows he meant Kyle, he loses some credibility on the left.

It is much harder for Candidate Joe Biden and the Harris campaign.

Joe Biden attacked Kyle Rittenhouse earlier, but not by name. From wispolitics.com:

Tonight, the President declined to rebuke violence. He wouldn’t even repudiate one of his supporters who is charged with murder because of his attacks on others. He is too weak, too scared of the hatred he has stirred to put an end to it.

So once again, I urge the President to join me in saying that while peaceful protest is a right — a necessity — violence is wrong, period. No matter who does it, no matter what political affiliation they have. Period.

Biden says Rittenhouse (was there another Trump supporter charged with murder, mentioned by the President?) attacked others. One only needs to look at the video to see the claim is false.

Rittenhouse did not attack anyone. Rittenhouse defended himself when others attacked him. In both situations, he was retreating, attempting to leave the situation, when he was attacked.

Former Vice President Biden says violence is wrong, period. But he does not condemn the violence by Antifa or BLM.

Violence is neutral, like gravity. It can be used for good or evil. In American law, violence used in self-defense is not evil, but a tool to prevent evil.

Vice President Biden is in a trap. His far-left supporters believe anyone who does not immediately submit to them, can be violently attacked. They define these attacks as “self-defense”.  It is an Orwellian inversion of the words which is part of their philosophy. Antifa rejects western law and logic as a matter of course. They explicitly reject first amendment rights.

If Biden does not retract his statement that Kyle Rittenhouse is a white supremacist, he is subject to a lawsuit. If he retracts it, he will be seen by his far-left supporters as weak.

Kyle Rittenhouse absolutely acted in self defense. Check out Attorney Andrew Branca’s legal analysis about this on his website http://www.LawofSelfDefense.com. Attorney Branca has several videos on the Rittenhouse case. This video is the most in-depth analysis.

White supremacists are anybody with a gun supporting our constitution. It doesn’t matter if you are white, Hispanic, Asian, or any other color.

Wow bro you glossed right over Rittenhouse’s MURDER of an unarmed man — AT DISTANCE — before the cliche “lets catch the shooter” video from the street altercation. Assuredly there no bias dripping off your article at all. <sarcasm> Rittenhouse was a tragedy waiting to happen thank God he got trigger happy before someone put a badge on him like all the rest. Regarding comments from tetejaun below ….apparently you can’t invoke self defense when the police decide to just shoot into your home and kick down your door and murder your woman. Well that is if your black !… Read more »

Yep, and ANTIFA is just an idea. Kyle had unbelievable restraint until it was obvious he was in grave danger serious bodily harm, even after retreating. Anybody with half a brain knows that. The kid deserves a freaking metal.

You should really watch the videos again, Rittenhouse was violently attacked by multiple attackers while he was only attempting to put out the dumpster fire they started and he defended himself.

Well, since God’s the only Judge (of which I agree), maybe you should cease your biased judgement that is light on facts and heavy on hyperbole. The fact is that a lot of violent, “UNARMED” men kill defenseless victims routinely every year. Again, if you can remove your biased goggles, you’ll likely see that Rittenhouse will be acquitted of all charges and his use of force was measured, controlled, and more than appropriate to defend himself. What isn’t defensible and should be held accountable, are the political mistruths of the same old argument about this vast white-supremacy movement…it simply doesn’t… Read more »

Chris Wallace is nothing more than a shill for the CRBs AKA Democrat party.
What these idiots don’t seem to understand is when their handlers are done with them, they will no longer be of any use to them. Which history tells us, they will be lined up against the wall, and shot!

“If Biden does not retract his statement that Kyle Rittenhouse is a white supremacist, he is subject to a lawsuit. If he retracts it, he will be seen by his far-left supporters as weak.” We see him as weak, regardless, and I hope that Linn’s suit will be successful. No matter how it turns out for Rittenhouse, his life is forever altered, and not in a good way. He should be in school, not jail. Biden should be, at minimum, be in prison, and lose all of his wealth as a result of this suit. Maybe then he will be… Read more »

Maybe hitting them in the wallet and a PUBLIC enlightenment of the TRUTH will finally get his attention. His and the rest of the communist, socialist, progressive demoncrapic party is/are afraid of the truth because it shows the entire nation just how evil and anti constitution they are.. Once the nation realizes that communism, socialism just doesn’t work the left will be brought up on sedition, tyranny and treason charges. We all know what the punnishment for those changes is.

Arm up and carry on

Fightback.law is probably worth supporting, but where does the money go? Assume Kyle wins big…shouldn’t a percentage of his judgement go back to fund Fightback??

According to the communist democrats, anyone who loves the Constitution, freedom and self-defense is in a militia or is an extreme right wing anarchist.

Unfortunately, far too many Americans, being uneducated in civics and cowardly, agree.

Ponder this: Americans wantonly slaughter the innocent infants, both unborn and (now) born. Yet, NO ONE cares.
You did this to yourselves. Imagine the insanity your children believe as “normal”.

; I can accept this. I, myself, just do not like being compared to groups such as HilLIARy did.
Consider this: One “nut” who is WANTON to harm others makes GUN-HATERS/CONTROLLERS group all gun owners in the same “basket” as the THUG. This grouping is WRONG !

He said “far too many”, he did not state all or most. He made it clear who are in the group, Far too many – are those that support, and/or agree with, Antifa, BLM, their rioting, looting, committing arson, attacking police and innocent people, destroying public and private property, etc. Yes, there are far too many that do support, agree, or otherwise believe the actions of Antifa and BlM, etc., are “justified”, or have “white guilt”, etc.

Well, it’s about time stepped up to hold the left responsible for what they say…for too long, the left has held POTUS’s feet to the fire for what he’s said or didn’t say, now the tables are about to turn, weaponize the left’s off the cuff statements and outright lies against them…
