Kyle Rittenhouse, the teen charged with killing two people during protests in Kenosha, has posted $2 million bail.

His lawyer, Lin Wood, went on Steve Bannon's show today & said that people need be prepared for another 1776 & "fight for their freedom" if election is certified
In the aftermath of the shooting in Kenosha, Rittenhouse became a symbol for neo-Nazis & white supremacists around the world. Posters w/ caption "Kyle was Right" can be found in Germany, Poland, Hungary, Serbia, the US, and Canada, among other places.
Here are some more examples in Serbia, Sweden & Germany of Rittenhouse being used in white supremacist propaganda.

The Proud Boys have also shown support for Rittenhouse, with chairman Enrique Tarrio saying "We're here for Kyle."

Same with 2A defenders.
For white nationalists (and even many Republicans), Rittenhouse's illegal actions were justified because he took matters into his own hands & went after cultural forces they believe are threatening society as a whole.

In short:he did what many others dreamed of doing themselves

Thread: Later today, white supremacist, alt-right & neo-nazi groups will descend on Washington,DC for a “white civil rights rally” reminiscent of the ‘Unite the Right’ rally in Charlottesville last year. Some of these far-right groups train in MMA to brawl with counter-protestors
Far-right groups like the Rise Above Movement (RAM) use MMA to recruit new members attracted to the prospect of violence. They refer to themselves as the “premier MMA fight club of the Alt-Right” & use their training to disrupt peaceful protests.…
Led by boxer Robert Rundo and Benjamin Daley (both exposed by ProPublica), RAM boasts 50 members and engaged in violent activities during protests in Berkeley, Huntington Beach, and Charlottesville. They have also assaulted journalists/ female protestors
