(RepublicanInformer.com)- Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager who was forced to defend himself with lethal force during a far-left Antifa/Black Lives Matter riot in August of 2020, just revealed that he plans to sue actress Whoopi Goldberg and a host of others for wrongly describing him as a “murderer” on television.
Rittenhouse, who killed two men and wounded another after they physically attacked him and pointed weapons at him in Kenosha two years ago, testified in court that he acted in self-defense and was acquitted on all charges.
During an interview with Tucker Carlson on Fox News on Monday, Rittenhouse was asked whether he intended to hold media figures and others accountable who smeared him as a murderer in the wake of his acquittal. And he said yes.
Rittenhouse said that his lawyers are looking at several celebrities, athletes, and politicians who have smeared him, including Whoopi Goldberg who now co-hosts. The View on MSNBC.
“She called me a murderer after I was acquitted by a jury of my peers,” Rittenhouse said. “She went on to still say that, and there’s others.”
He also named Cenk Uygur, the far-left host of The Young Turks, who apparently continues to call Rittenhouse a murderer despite a jury ruling that he acted entirely in self-defense.
It’s terrifying that Rittenhouse is even in this position. After almost being convicted of first-degree murder for defending himself against murderous extremists in the street who tried to kill him, Rittenhouse is now accused of doing what those attackers tried to do to him.

This is going to upset a lot of people…and potentially prove to the left-wing press that they can’t just tell lies about everyone who disagrees with their political agenda.
Let’s hope these lawsuits are successful.
