Imagine killing two unarmed people as a teenager and you not going to jail. On top of that, you have the nerve to get mad because no one wants anything to do with you. After two recent right winged events where he planned to speak, got cancelled, Kyle Rittenhouse says he’s being treated unfairly.
During an interview with Sebastian Gorka on the America First podcast, the teen shooter shares that “I was supposed to be giving a speech at Southern Star Brewery with Defiance Press, and they booted us because the woke mob found out I posted about it.
“I tried to promote it to get people to come and hear about censorship and the Second Amendment and they didn’t like that,” Rittenhouse said.america first podcast
“But just recently, as of this morning, the Oak Room at the Venetian canceled us and bent to the woke mob saying we aren’t going to host you guys anymore,” he said.america first podcast
Further, the Grand Canal Shoppes said in a statement that the event, which was sponsored by the National Association for Gun Rights, did not “align with our property’s core event guidelines.” Rittenhouse questioned the brewery’s declination. “They said they are apolitical, but after doing a dive into their social media, they’ve hosted Pride parades, they’ve had political events there,” he said. “It’s just because of my name and they’re just being unfair and biased.”
The Beer Company Has Received Threats Since Pulling Out From The Event
Southern Star Brewery CEO Dave Fougeron said the company had been inundated with threats and harassment after announcing it would no longer be hosting the event with Rittenhouse.
“The threats we have received so far have been mostly on our Squarespace account, where people can leave burner or made-up email addresses,” Fougeron told Newsweek.
“We were receiving about 50 of these messages per hour,” he said. “Most of them were just name-calling. But some of them were people wishing us bodily harm and property damage.”
“I don’t believe any of these threats to be credible at the moment. It is really easy to sling mud anonymously. We have asked our regulars to keep a bit more of a watchful eye on us. But I don’t think anyone thinks that they are in any danger.”
Fougeron added he finds it “highly ironic” that conservative publisher Defiance Press, which organized the “free speech” event; is now trying to “cancel us from exercising our rights to free speech.”
