The rhetoric and narrative-building that the establishment, corporate media and career politicians — like President Joe Biden — have engaged in has damaged regular people for no other reason than to further some kind of warped agenda. Now, one of the people affected by their dangerous defamation is speaking out and pleading with them to actually know the facts before commenting.
Kyle Rittenhouse, the 18-year-old who was acquitted last Friday in a classic case of self-defense, joined Fox News’ Tucker Carlson for a sit-down interview released on Monday.
In the interview, Rittenhouse directly addressed Biden after being asked about the president labeling him a “white supremacist” in 2020 after the incident involving the teen.
"This case has nothing to do with race," Rittenhouse told Carlson. "It never had anything to do with race. It had to do with the right to self-defense."
For context, Biden sent out a video tweet that included an image of Rittenhouse with a caption that called out former President Donald Trump for not disavowing “white supremacist” during their Fox News presidential debate.
Here’s the tweet:

In response to Carlson’s question about the tweet that essentially lumped in Rittenhouse as a “white supremacist,” in which debate moderator and Fox News host Chris Wallace pointed out the violence in Kenosha, he said that Biden should “understand the facts before you make a statement.”
“Mr. President, if I could say one thing to you, I would urge you to go back and watch the trial and understand the facts before you make a statement,” Rittenhouse said.

But the left never does that. For them, feelings don’t care about your facts, the narrative must be strictly adhered to and the agenda must never waver.
Even though those who actually watched the trial know the facts of his case, the left is still condemning Rittenhouse for carrying out what a jury found as perfectly legal self-defense.
