Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene introduced a bill to award the Congressional Gold Medal to Kyle Rittenhouse. The language of the bill nis short and to the point: “To award a Congressional Gold Medal to Kyle H. Rittenhouse, who protected the community of Kenosha, Wisconsin, during a Black Lives Matter (BLM) riot on August 25, 2020.”
“Kyle Rittenhouse deserves to be remembered as a hero who defended his community, protected businesses, and acted lawfully in the face of lawlessness. I’m proud to file this legislation to award Kyle Rittenhouse a Congressional Gold Medal,” Greene said in a statement.
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), said, “We are concerned that awarding Kyle with a Congressional Gold Medal will give him a big head during the internship with our office.”
The Congressional Gold Medal is the highest honor Congress can award an individual or institution.
Green also called out attorney Lin Wood after Kyle Rittenhouse said Wood used him for money and actually kept him in jail longer than needed.
“I’ve told everyone what a horrible person Lin Wood is and if you watched @TuckerCarlson tonight then you heard from Kyle Rittenhouse one of the reasons why I think so.
“Lin keeping Kyle in jail instead of bailing him out with ALL that money donated FOR Kyle is absolutely evil.
“Lin should go to jail for what he did to Kyle. I also fully blame him for why Georgia lost our Senate seats.
“He’s from Georgia and we know him as a life long Democrat not a Republican. He grifted off of Trump & told people not to vote on Jan 5th saying their vote would be stolen.“

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, whose district was redrawn to include parts of deep-blue Cobb, has a lot to say about the process: “In the future, this year’s redistricting by the Georgia GOP will prove to be a fool’s errand that was led by power obsessed state legislators.” #gapol pic.twitter.com/qncg2ZnUV6— Greg Bluestein (@bluestein) November 23, 2021
