Rittenhouse to Piers Morgan, ‘I’m Not A Hero.’

2nd Amendment – R2KBA Current Events This Week

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

In a revealing interview, Kyle Rittenhouse, a central figure in a controversial case from the 2020 Wisconsin “mostly peaceful” BLM protests, spoke out about his experiences and the ensuing fallout.

Rittenhouse, who claimed self-defense in the incident where he was charged with the murder of two ex-cons (one a convicted child molester, the other a convicted domestic abuser), was acquitted, a decision that has since been a subject of debate, especially on the Left.

During the interview, Piers Morgan probed deeply into Rittenhouse’s emotional state post-trial.

Morgan asked, “You killed two people and you wounded a third. How do you feel about that?”

Rittenhouse responded, “They attacked me, they left me with no choice… It’s not an easy thing to do but I did what I had to do to stay alive.”

Morgan continued to press on Rittenhouse’s personal feelings, especially considering his young age (17) at the time of the incident.

When asked about the impact of having taken two lives, Rittenhouse replied, “It’s something I deal with every day… It’s not easy to deal with. I have to deal with the PTSD and the trauma from having to do that.”

Rittenhouse also addressed the publication of his new book, “Acquitted.” When questioned about the ethics of potentially profiting from a tragic event, he clarified his intention.

“I’m not writing the book to make money. I’m writing the book to tell the story of what happened,” Rittenhouse said.

“I’m trying to change the narrative that media keeps putting out there that I’m some type of white supremacist racist person when that’s just not true,” he continued. “I’m a 20-year-old kid who was put in a situation where I was forced to defend myself, and I’m writing to put that into a book.

Piers then asked, “How do you feel that you became a hero to many on the far right and kind of made you their poster boy?”

“Well, Piers, I’m not a hero. I did what I had to do to defend myself. There are countless Americans every day that defend themselves, and it and it’s not a heroic thing to do. It doesn’t make you a villain, but it doesn’t make you a hero,” said Kyle.

“It’s doing the right thing to stay alive. If I didn’t defend myself, I wouldn’t be here talking today,” he added.

The interview sheds light on Rittenhouse’s perspective on the events that have significantly impacted his life. His responses provide insight into his emotional journey and his views on the broader implications of his case in the context of American gun rights and self-defense laws.

    It’s unfortunate that both sides choose to exploit him rather than just letting him be. I hope he’s getting help for his PTSD.

    His conscience may not bother him now, but one day it will. Instead of leaving the streets to all the rioting knuckleheads, he armed himself and went out in the middle of them looking for trouble, and if people don’t understand that, we really have a problem in this country. And it’s NOT gun control. It’s IDIOT control.

    A gun is nothing more than a tool. You pick the right tool for the job. He picked his tool, an AR15, and went out with an agenda. Okay, agreed, he took out two pieces of society’s trash and probably helped clean the ‘gene pool’. So what does that make him? If you ask him if he wishes he’d never left the house that infamous night, do you think he’d give you a different answer? One day he’ll wake up and his conscience will have the answer.

    How does it make you feel when you are attacked by a 39 year old convicted felon, mental patient, trying to take your rifle? How does it feel to be pursued by an angry mob shouting kill him, kill him? how does it feel to be hit in the head with a skate board, knocked down and then the guy grabs the barrel of your rifle and pulls it towards himself causing it to fire and then another guy walks up and tries to shoot you in the head, but he has forgotten to chamber a round. How does it make you feel when mass media continues to lie, even after video exonerates you?

    Ironic how Piers asks if he thinks it is right to make money on someones death. When Pier is doing just that. HMMMMM!!!!! 😉

    Rittenhouse was smart enough to do what he needed to do in order to survive.
    How does Morgan fell about promoting the antigun lies of the left
    If those leftist thugs had kill had killed Rittenhouse, that would not have made national news

    This article was written by a left leaning, social engineering yet still tragically exposed yellow journalist. The hints may be subtle to some, but they are not to those who know the actual realities of a moral life. If Guns of America is either too ignorant or this left leaning, they might want to be careful. The world is certainly tired of these subtle stabs at the actual good people of this earth.

      Not it wasn’t. Please be specific with your criticisms.

  • John Komorowski December 1, 2023, 8:43 pm

    Piers Morgan is a SMACKED ASS. Totally classless.

  • Bill bowman December 1, 2023, 9:13 am

    Piers Morgan is still another Brit lib trying to Impersonate a conservative media host to stay in the us.
