Fox News host Tucker Carlson released allegedly unseen video from the night teenaged Kyle Rittenhouse was entangled in the Kenosha, Wisconsin shootings.
Carlson aired a never before seen video compiled by the non-profit “Fight Back,” an organization formed by the 17-year-old’s defamation lawyer, Lynn Wood. The video is mostly comprised of cellphone footage filmed by witnesses on August 25th.
Liberal media has labeled the Illinois teenager a “vigilante” and “domestic terrorist,” but the video frames Rittenhouse as a “good Samaritan,” who helped remove graffiti from a high school by day and guarded local businesses by night.
Rittenhouse can be seen addressing the camera wearing latex gloves, strapped with a gun and a medical kit prior to the shooting. “Our job is to protect this business and part of my job is also helping people. If there’s somebody hurt, I am running into harm’s way,” the teenager explained. “That’s why I have my rifle, because I need to protect myself obviously, but I also have my med kit.”
A narrator detailed a scene in the video, where Rittenhouse was running with a fire extinguisher while Joseph Rosenbaum, a convicted child molester, was starting fires. Rosenbaum chased after Rittenhouse, then the first shot of the incident can be seen being fired from a protester’s gun.
When a mob armed with weapons formed a barricade that pinned Rittenhouse between cars, he shot four times. Three more gunshots were fired seconds later by an unknown shooter. Rosenbaum was hit four times, but the narrator claims it is unclear if all the wounds were inflicted by Rittenhouse.
Carlson alleged that the video showed the mob had turned on Rittenhouse at this point, “they assault him, it’s clear they plan to kill him.”
Footage from the second shooting revealed Rittenhouse trying to make it to the police as he trips to the ground after being attacked by a protester. The narrator points out that he fired two shots in the air to scare them off, but the assault continued as Anthony Huber, a convicted domestic abuser, attacked him with a skateboard and reached for his rifle. Rittenhouse shot him once in the chest.
A third man identified as Gaige Grosskreutz, who was once in possession of a firearm while intoxicated, feigned as if he was surrendering, then pointed a gun at the former teenage lifeguard, who shot him in the right bicep.
The video included a photo of Grosskreutz in the hospital with a friend, who posted on social media that the wounded man’s only regret was “not killing the kid and hesitating to pull the gun before emptying the entire mag into him.”
Rittenhouse’s lawyers have claimed self-defense, and Carlson brought Fox News host Jeanine Pirro on air to analyze the video.
She blasted the media for grabbing onto a narrative and repeating it ad nauseam, without regard for the lives that they ruin. “They claim he’s part of a militia, he’s vigilante, he’s a white supremacist, he’s none of that stuff,” she stated. “Everything about what he said and what he did indicates that he is not someone who went there with the intent to kill.”
“So that’s what happened that night in Kenosha, August 25, 2020,” Carlson stated. “It’s on camera, you can assess for yourself what you think of it.”
