It is evident that Republicans will celebrate a murderer before fighting for racial justice in America.
This week, California Republican candidate DeAnna Lorraine took to Twitter to praise Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old who killed two people and injured one more during a Black Lives Matter protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last week.
According to Lorraine, “We need more young people like Kyle Rittenhouse and less like Greta Thunberg,” comparing the shooter to a climate change activist urging the world to save the Earth.

Lorraine even took her time to smear one of the victims of the shooting by accusing 26-year-old professional skateboarder Anthony Huber of being an abuser of his girlfriend as justification for why Rittenhouse’s murder should be encouraged.
Peaceful… except for the seven times he beat his girlfriend up.

According to Hannah Gittings, Huber’s partner, he was actually looking out for her when Rittenhouse had opened fire.
“It is just a true testament to like what kind of person he was,” Gittings said. “He pushed me out of the way and ran off after him because he was not going to let anybody get taken down by some as*hole with an AR.”
