#KyleRittenhouse GoFundMe For Legal Defense Taken Down

The GoFundMe campaign "Help Us Free Kyle" created by  Kyle Rittenhouse's father Tom Rittenhouse has been taken down according to various tweets and media reports. The #HollowNet confirmed this as of 7AM PST 8/27/20. “Please, help me save our son Kyle! He did nothing wrong, he is being railroaded by the state,” the preview for the campaign read prior to it's deletion.

Gabriel Keane of reported:

 A GoFundMe page raising legal defense funds for 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, who video suggests shot two men in self defense Tuesday during the Kenosha riots but has been charged with first-degree murder, has been removed from the site within minutes of going live.

Users who wanted to donate to the page were greeted by a message that read “We’re sorry, but that campaign cannot be found.”'s Elijah Schaffer (Image credit above) has provided continuous coverage of the developing chaos in Kenosha, WI and given crucial context to the events leading up to the shooting that took place during the Kenosha riots on August 25th. Extensive video records exist from multiple sources which leave very little room for creative interpretation of what appears to be a defensive shooting.

GoFundMe and the Mainstream media at large have clearly rendered judgement on the case which is still under investigation. In a politically/socially motivated decision GoFundMe has continued and even promoted the campaigns supporting the families of rioters Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum who were killed in the shooting.

It appears that in the court of public opinion as adjudicated by the Twitter mob, GoFundMe and multiple Mainstream media outlets. Kyle Rittenhouse has been found guilty.
