A different perspective on the Kyle Rittenhouse incident, from Galicant Wiseword at theburningplatform.com:

You probably will not like what I have to say about Kenosha Kyle so maybe we should start with some common ground.

Do you love your nation?  Do you hate tyranny and big government shuttering your business and church  to perpetuate a lie?  I do.
