The far-right darling is accused of leaving his mom and sister high and dry as they fight eviction.

Kyle Rittenhouse has been publicly dragged by his own family, who say the far-right darling has left them high and dry as his mother and sister brace for eviction from their home.

Faith, Kyle’s sister, put out a desperate plea for help on May 29, setting up a GoFundMe to help fight their eviction notice.

“With my brother’s unwillingness to provide support or contribute to our family, we’ve been left to navigate this journey on our own,” she added.

Her family has “exhausted every resource available to us,” she wrote, and “time is running out.”

When I was in the hospital we tried to like talk to my brother, we tried to like to tell his lawyer to tell like my brother like I was maybe needing surgery or like I was in the hospital, I never heard from him,” Faith told viewers of the V-Radio podcast.

    Seems the other commenters fell for the propaganda hard. This kind of thing happens in America everyday, but now that it’s happening to someone the left loves to hate it makes every news channel.

    America needs medical reform, not to dunk on a guy that defended himself.

      Maybe don’t deliberately grab a gun and go put yourself in a situation that has nothing to do with you?

      That said, single payer healthcare all the way baby!

      The left isn’t who made him a cause célèbre. That was the right wing media. He wasn’t interviewed by fucking Jacobin or whatever. He was interviewed on Fox News. And he didn’t “defend” himself unless you ignore everything that happened leading up to the killings. He got driven across state lines with a AR-style rifle “to protect businesses” like a dumbass.

      I want medical reforms as much as you, believe me, but I also want a dumbass exception to self-defense laws. If you arm yourself and appoint yourself a vigilante, you are no longer acting in self defense. You are an untrained dumbass creating the conditions for violence. It’s like showing up to an Alabama - LSU game and going into the LSU student section in a Bama jersey. If you get a beer thrown at you and it ends in a brawl, nothing you do is self defense. It’s your own dumbass fault.

        He got driven across state lines with a AR-style rifle “to protect businesses” like a dumbass.

        And then, when the businesses that he and his associates were “protecting” were fine, he went off on his own to look for trouble.

        This fucking loser wanted a body count. He put himself in harms way so he had an excuse to pull the trigger. And he found that excuse. And a jury accepted that excuse as justification for his actions.

        The left went after him with teeth, they wanted to turn him into another mass shooter. Kid was a fucking idiot, but you wanting to hitch your wagon to felons and child molesters who attacked him is a bit silly.

        If you arm yourself and appoint yourself a vigilante, you are no longer acting in self defense.

        How come the left didn’t apply that same logic to grosen or whatever the fuck domestic violence guys name was that got his arm smoked? He was carrying illegally, and was part of the crowd burning down buildings that had nothing to do with the police.

        You are an untrained dumbass creating the conditions for violence. It’s like showing up to an Alabama - LSU game and going into the LSU student section in a Bama jersey. If you get a beer thrown at you and it ends in a brawl, nothing you do is self defense. It’s your own dumbass fault.

        No that’s called being a child, but it’s not ok for the other side to not act like adults and be violent. The fuck is wrong with you, you sound like a damn gang member “well he was in our hood wearing the other gangs colors, so we shot him”.

        Grow up.

        %100 need single payer though.

          The kid is on record saying he wants to shoot someone and then he put himself in a position to make it happen.

          That’s the piece of shit you’re defending.

            Where did I defend him? I’m not the one acting like the 3 people he shot were angels, and I sure as fuck am not the one who is completely ignorant to the case. There are still tons of people on the left who seem to think he shot minorities…hell even in this thread someone said it.

        Indiscriminately is the wrong word. He didn’t just show up and started shooting people. Many things led to that.

        Source: the videos.

        To the downvoters: note that I didn’t say “murder” was the wrong word, just “indiscriminately”.
