If anyone in the U.S. knows what Kyle Rittenhouse has and is going through at the hands of the establishment media, career politicians and all other self-important virtue-signalers, it's Nicholas Sandmann.
Sandmann, now 19, was a 16-year-old student from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky on a field trip when confronted by a far-left activist near the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. back in January of 2019.
The kid who owned the media for their false reporting of the incident published an op-ed on Tuesday for the Daily Mail with the headline, "The corrupt liberal media came for me, just like they came for Kyle Rittenhouse, and if he decides to sue I say go for it and hold the media accountable."
Sandmann drew parallels between the treatment of Rittenhouse and himself by the establishment media and noted that those parallels "are impossible not to draw."
Perhaps the most attention-drawing statement that Sandmann made in the article concerning how the establishment has smeared Rittenhouse was when he directly addressed narrative drivers, like President Joe Biden and basketball player LeBron James.
"In our hyperpolarized society, the first impression of Kyle has been set in stone, probably for the rest of his life," Sandmann wrote. "So to President Joe Biden, Lebron James, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, and every other commentator: please be quiet.
Sandmann concluded his piece by directly giving his support to Rittenhouse:
One of the saddening parts of this media onslaught is that it has taken young people like Kyle and myself to expose how corrupt the media really is.
From my own experience, I know that this cannot be easy for Kyle. While I have waited to comment on the facts of Kyle's case until the trial ends. I cannot hold back on the media's public execution of him before the trial has concluded.
At this time I would like to use my platform to let Kyle know that I am here for you and if you ever would like to reach out to me, I am about the only person our age to have an idea of how the media is treating you. The way the media has treated you is terrible, and you don't have to face it alone.
The overarching theme of Sandmann's piece was that he believes, and rightfully so, that Rittenhouse should "hold the media accountable."
