GOP Cheers For Domestic Terrorism: The mother of Kenosha Killer Kyle Rittenhouse received a standing ovation while appearing at a Wisconsin GOP event earlier this week.
The mother of Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old charged with fatally shooting two people in Kenosha, Wisconsin, during protests following the police shooting of Jacob Blake, received a standing ovation on Thursday while attending a Wisconsin GOP event.
Wendy Rittenhouse and her son’s lawyer, John Pierce, attended a Waukesha County Republican event, and they were applauded by the crowd after being brought on stage by conservative commentator Michelle Malkin.
NBC News reports:
Rittenhouse’s case has become a cause célèbre among some conservatives who believe the teenager’s actions were justified.
Conservative commentator Michelle Malkin brought Rittenhouse’s mother to a GOP event in Waukesha County, Wisconsin, on Thursday night, where they were warmly received, the syndicated columnist said on Twitter. Malkin also said she has called Rittenhouse in jail and thanked him “for his courage.”
Michele Malkin, self-described “little brown woman” who makes her money promoting white supremacy, tweeted the following:

To be clear about this. At event sponsored by the Waukesha GOP in Wisconsin, the mother of the 17-year-old boy who took a rifle across state lines to Kenosha, and shot three people, killing two… Received a standing ovation. Led by one of the right’s most notorious racists.

Rittenhouse, the domestic terrorist charged with murder after killing two BLM protesters and wounding another, has become a celebrity in some conservative circles.
Earlier this week former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi defended the domestic terrorist, claiming Rittenhouse was “a little boy out there trying to protect his community.”
And earlier this month GOP activist DeAnna Lorraine praised Rittenhouse. On Twitter Lorraine declared:
We need more young people like Kyle Rittenhouse and less like Greta Thunberg.
In addition, the Christian crowdfunding site GiveSendGo is hosting a fundraising drive for Rittenhouse after legitimate crowdfunding sites like GoFundMe refused to do so. So far these “good Christians” have raised over $500,000 for the domestic terrorist.
Bottom line: The mother of Kenosha Killer Kyle Rittenhouse received a standing ovation while appearing at a Wisconsin GOP event earlier this week.
