Al Sharpton went on MSNBC Sunday and took a few widely inaccurate swipes at Kyle Rittenhouse. Sharpton, still clinging to a year of false reporting by most media outlets, repeated the BS narrative as if it was not debunked during the trial.
Al clearly did not watch the trial because if he did and not just watch the way MSNBC presented the case he would not have said what he said about Kyle.
He said Kyle showed up in Kenosha to confront protesters and was not a member of the community. Sharpton said: “I think what people are forgetting, if you start with the wrong premise, you come to the wrong conclusion.
“The reason Kyle Rittenhouse went to Kenosha was because there was protests against a young Black man shot in the back seven times by police.
“He was not a member of that community. What this verdict does is make people like me that lead protests very concerned. Are people now going to come into our protests and kill people or hurt people and claim self-defense?”
Kyle Rittenhouse, of course, is a part of that community. He lives just a few miles away. His father and best friends live there.
Kyle also had a job in the community. He was there to help out not confront protesters and proved it in court by demonstrating that he spent part of the day removing graffiti left from the protests.
Kyle also shot three white guys who were little more than armed thugs. They had criminal records, not Kyle.
One of the men even admitted to pointing a gun at Kyle before Kyle opened fire. The media screwed this story up from the jump.
But to allow Sharpton to spread misinformation after the facts have been out and the jury found him not guilty is just more proof for Kyle’s future lawsuit.

Rev. Al Sharpton on being cautiously optimistic about the Ahmaud Arbery trial: "I sat in many courtrooms, saying that if we go by the law, we go by logic, we win, and ended up disappointed. … We still live in a society where if you're Black, you have to be, at best, cautious." pic.twitter.com/0L5UuwBVzH— MSNBC (@MSNBC) November 21, 2021
