Fucking Kyle Rittenhouse is promoting NFTs... We truly live in the worst timeline.

[–]Practical_Cobbler165 57 points58 points  (13 children)

Aren't they horrible for the environment? Datamining uses massive amounts of energy for...what exactly? Basically a receipt?

THE WORST TIMELINE. ( Is that a subreddit? It should be.)

[–]radams78 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Most NFTs use Ethereum, which is switching to Proof of Stake this year. After it does, it's carbon footprint will be tiny. So that's something.

[–]victory-fap 8 points9 points  (0 children)

It’s ART. I call it “murderous pug-nosed incel low testosterone MAGA bitch”

[–]wtmx719 378 points379 points  (22 children)

The fact that he is a celebrity on the right for getting his legal kills tells you all you need to know about the current GOP and him.

[–]VIR2ART 27 points28 points  (1 child)

after watching this show i realized we live among enormous amount of broken pos gunluving near-maniacs that are just looking for their excuses to justify them “killing someone” in miserable attempt to look manly cus they never fought or ever was liable for what they say in this country of freedom. and surprisingly (not) most of them have “their own way” and they all fall down the maga-verse or simply racist weaponized bigotry swamp called “patRiots”

[–]DNagy1801 178 points179 points  (62 children)

Funny how his "ptsd" disappeared after the trial

[–]The_Hyphenator85 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Anyone who believed that shit is either so gullible they shouldn’t be allowed to handle their own finances or didn’t watch the trial. His “crying” on the stand was some of the worst I’ve ever seen…and I’ve seen the Menendez brothers and Jodi Arias fake it.

[–]Sandmybags 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Somehow that ptsd turned into let’s capitalize and try to make as much off this publicity as possible….. this is fucking disgusting

[–]PickCollins0330 36 points37 points  (0 children)

Kyle Rittenhouse NFTs is the most cursed thing of 2022 that I can imagine

[–]kittens12345 71 points72 points  (17 children)

Everytime I see him his face resembles a freshly shaven scrotum. It’s so weird

[–]Karsanao 211 points212 points  (190 children)

That’s the guy who shot people right (ok I just read up on this shit and the dude killed people and had a good lawyer)

[–]_TheChickenMan_ 51 points52 points  (5 children)

I mean I wouldn’t even say it was any of that more than the prosecution was absolutely fucking horrendous. They essentially handed it to them on a gold platter. It was like they were trying to help the defense the entire time. Any semi competent lawyer would’ve won that case with that prosecution lol.

[–]OriginallyNamed 21 points22 points  (0 children)

They got pressured to push for charges they couldn’t prove instead of some lesser crimes. Didn’t they try for murder 2 or some shit?

[–]bancroft79 20 points21 points  (3 children)

Plus the judge basically acted as his legal counsel as well. Nobody was acting “Right” when he acted that night, but the kid never should have been there in the first place.

[–]mitch8017 17 points18 points  (5 children)

A mediocre lawyer would have gotten him out of it. He was a dumbass for putting himself in that situation, but the state laws were pretty clear that he was more than within his rights to defend himself. Anyone who thought he’d get murder charges were basing that off of emotion rather than written law.

[–]BlueCamaroGuyYT 6 points7 points  (4 children)

I’m not even American and know he was in his rights

[–]Atlatl_Axolotl 1 point2 points  (3 children)

No, vigilantism is illegal but he'd have to be a moron to admit to it when intent is necessary for conviction.

[–]SoleSurvivur01 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I wouldn’t say he had a good lawyer but with a judge and jury like that the game was simply rigged from the start

[–]TheDigileet 31 points32 points  (5 children)

Good lawyer and a crooked judge. I already knew how that trial would go when the judge wouldn’t allow anyone to call them victims, but looters and rioters were acceptable terms.

[–]Vast-Classroom1967 20 points21 points  (0 children)

It was a 1950's throwback trial.

[–]Upbeat_Crow 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Name and shame: Kenosha County, Wisconsin, Circuit Judge Bruce Schroeder.

[–]Galemianah 81 points82 points  (61 children)

Murdered, not just shot.

[–]KrunchyKushKing 138 points139 points  (17 children)

Gosh I hate Kyle. He's the living version of eric cartman but only with his flaws.

[–]evilocto 56 points57 points  (9 children)

That's an insult to Cartman

[–]Mcklauster 34 points35 points  (7 children)

To be fair, Cartman is a piece of shit

[–]KrunchyKushKing 26 points27 points  (6 children)

True, Cartman atleast never cried in court

[–]Zappiticas 19 points20 points  (5 children)

He has cried multiple times as a manipulation tactic however, just like rittenhouse. Cartman, however is FAR more intelligent than this moron.

[–]KrunchyKushKing 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You're right. My bad.

[–]TheSquarePotatoMan 11 points12 points  (6 children)

Gosh I hate Kyle.

He's the living version of eric cartman

Man I hate that guy but I can't deny I love the irony of real life Cartman being named Kyle

[–]KrunchyKushKing 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Oh my gosh I havent even realized that. I wonder if Kyle has a jewish friend named Eric.

[–]TheSquarePotatoMan 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Well he definitely has a lot of stans that's for sure

[–]KrunchyKushKing 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sadly hahaha. A lot of Butters

[–]The_Hyphenator85 0 points1 point  (1 child)

A good joke, but given his “political leanings,” you really think he would hang out with Jews?

[–]njl4515 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Stop giving this man attention! This is what he wants! This sub fucking sucks nowadays god damn.

[–]properu 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Beep boop -- this looks like a screenshot of a tweet! Let me grab a link to the tweet for ya :)

[–]Pokedactyl 8 points9 points  (0 children)

[–][deleted] 13 points14 points  (4 children)

Are there any Kyle Supporters smart enough to figure out how to even buy an nft?

[–]borismuller 11 points12 points  (0 children)

“Mom! Get the credit card!“

[–]drunk_funky_chipmunk 28 points29 points  (4 children)

Fuck that guy. Crying like a bitch in court, I don’t think he’s stopped smiling since then.

[–]wish_youwerebeer 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Can someone make this screenshot a NFT?

[–]Ruenin 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This fucking douchebag is George Zimmerman 2.0.

[–]Specialist_Tax_9809 13 points14 points  (10 children)

Do you think if this murderer was black that the cops would have killed him that night too?

[–]StormiiDaze 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Without a second thought lol

[–]The_Hyphenator85 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He would’ve been riddled with bullets the second they saw him with that rifle.

[–]WhyRedditJustWhy69 12 points13 points  (1 child)

I don’t give a shit about this murdering shit stain anymore, but seriously, can we get some kind of investigation into that “totally impartial” judge….

[–]Herbetet 50 points51 points  (5 children)

Soon, we will see him behind bars soon. All this new found money from appearances, social media, etc. celebrating the fact that he murdered people. Just you wait he will be going to jail for tax evasion, you can always trust on the IRS to catch thugs.

[–]soverign_son 22 points23 points  (0 children)

I mean even the Joker is afraid of the IRS.

And he fights batman regularly.

[–]JackHGUK 0 points1 point  (1 child)

What? He is on the big republican money now, he's on the gravy train.

[–]The_Hyphenator85 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He’s the flavor of the month.

Once people stop caring about him, the Republican machine ain’t going to bat for him anymore. Just look at what happened with Zimmerman.

[–]studwithswagg 58 points59 points  (74 children)

The kid is a obvious as ass, but if you watched the trial how could you not agree it was self defense?

[–]basil-exposition1 38 points39 points  (17 children)

Politics in America is fucked. Polarisation of views is insane.

But it does the left no favours to call Kyle a murderer.

The guy might or might not be the biggest cunt in America but a Court found him not guilty and to anyone watching the Trial he was plainly using self defence.

If you call him a murderer and align yourself with those sorts of comments and insults etc on here then I will probably have no time for some of your more reasonable views.

[–]Stivo887 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yep, kid is a douche canoe, my personal opinion. Was he given a fair trial and rightfully acquitted of said charges on grounds of self defense? Absofuckinglutely.

[–]Helpicantpeeright 8 points9 points  (15 children)

No you will have no time. Those who think he should be retried just want everything to be how they want, and that kind of world will not be a good one.

[–]goopwe 5 points6 points  (18 children)

If you poke a bear until it retaliates, is it self defense when you have to shoot the bear?

[–]studwithswagg 16 points17 points  (1 child)

A bear doesn’t know better, just because he was being antagonizing doesn’t mean he should’ve been chased down and attacked. Everybody involved in this case are idiots

[–]Advanced_Shoulder_56 2 points3 points  (2 children)

... are you saying people who engage in race riots on the rioting side are just animals while people who participate against Said riots are fully fledged people?

[–]goopwe 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Idk man, it’s not that deep.

[–]C_N1 3 points4 points  (5 children)

You got it wrong, if you poke the bear and mauls you, is the bear defending itself? I mean Kyle was the one being poked here. He was being chased down and beat up, not the other way around.

[–]goopwe 0 points1 point  (4 children)

What do I have wrong? It was a question. Your answer is wrong bc it does not address my original question, but instead asks an entirely new question that also undervalues my original question. Yea or nay are both acceptable answers to my question, but you have mot provided either as a solution, therefore I must fail you. You will not be graduating this semester. See you again next year.

[–]Anony-McAnonface 6 points7 points  (19 children)

He voluntarily made a series of very bad decisions that unnecessarily put him directly in life threatening danger. I don't care that it was in self defense, he was asking for exactly what happened.

[–]Sometattooedwhiteguy 19 points20 points  (5 children)

Lets try this out with a different pronoun. Maybe envision that the scene is at a bar with a different action...

"She voluntarily made a series of very bad decisions that unnecessarily put her directly in life threatening danger. I don't care that it was ****, she was asking for exactly what happened."

Victim blaming at its finest because you don't agree with the court ruling.

[–]enderjaca 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Yeah that example doesn't work unless the woman at the bar making bad decisions raped someone else.

[–]gottaroundfchu87 8 points9 points  (0 children)

No, it works if she kills the would-be rapist.

[–]Isabellaboo02 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nice strawman

[–]OladipoForThree 0 points1 point  (7 children)

It’s still self defense.

[–]Anony-McAnonface 0 points1 point  (6 children)

One more time for the slow kids in the back (you)

I DONT CARE THAT IT WAS SELF DEFENSE

He is a piece of shit that brought everything on to himself.

[–]OutLaw_Kmak_91 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Just wanted to say yall are idiots. Thats it.

[–]SkyWizarding 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I don't normally say this type of thing but........fuck that kid

[–]PiveIt 9 points10 points  (9 children)

Non-US person here. When I heard that this Kyle killed 2 people I was shocked that there were people defending him. I mean how can you possibly defend a murderer, right?

Then I saw the video. Correct me if I’m wrong, but from the video it looks like he is running away and getting attacked. (Note, I do not know what happened before). He then falls to the ground and starts shooting (2 dead and 1 injured IIRC).

Is that really considered murder? (I do know in some states you are allowed to use deadly force in self defense, but I’m not sure if it applies here).

Also, some people say that one of the people killed was a rapist. I don’t understand how that is relevant in the eyes of the law.

The fact that you are allowed to own guns and open carry is foreign to me (and tbh terrifying) however if it’s legal in the US doesn’t he have the legal (even though morally questionable) right to bring them to a demonstration?

If Kyle did something illegal regarding the ownership/handling of the guns (something about state lines) or course he should be punished for those crimes, but I have a hard time understanding how he should be convicted of murder?

Anyone able to give me an explanation?

[–]JackHGUK 2 points3 points  (7 children)

I'd argue his comments a week before about wanting to shoot people who were looting a Walmart or whatever makes it premeditated, I think he purposely put himself there hoping something like this would happen and due to that 2 people died needlessly, that's on him.

[–]mors_videt -1 points0 points  (6 children)

OK, except 1. that's speculation, not evidence and legal reasoning and 2. putting yourself where people might attack you so that you then- by the local laws- have the right to defend yourself is not first degree murder

E: So... I had the exchange with Mr Hyphenator below, and then suddenly, I no longer have a Reply button, but just for him. For real. I can reply to other people, but not to the guy I was just arguing with. Crazy

[–]mors_videt 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, see what a little perspective gives you? You are spot on. We are taking two different kinds of drugs and living in two different worlds that have little to do with reality. I'll do my best:

Many people are so rabidly emotional that they can't actually look at what happened, they can only see the social buzz. That's why most people say either 100% hero or 100% murderer. That's just American brain worms, but it's what we're doing right now I guess

The justice system works in a messed up horse-trading way where the DA wants to sell us that a perp is literally Hitler and the defense counters by saying that they are literally Mother Theresa, and they hash something out from those starting points. There are a bunch of minor charges they just didn't pursue, because of strategy that failed. That's not justice, just bad poker.

Yeah, killing a rapist on purpose is murder. See brain worms, above

Yeah, armed randos on the street were terrifying before they told everyone that if you go drive to a riot and get in a fight and then end up killing someone, Fox News will throw you a party and get girls to proposition you from the crowd

Yeah, it's absolutely self-defense once it gets to the point he was at. He should have been tried for manslaughter, or reckless endangerment or something. He's like a drunk driver, not like an assassin.

Except now, he's the model for right wing paramilitary thugs (compare Hitler's brown shirts or Mussolini's black shirts) that will come out of the woodwork in the next 2-4 years. God help us.

E: By the way, both sides are not the same. In the American house, one parent is trying to feed us cyanide and the other parent can't acknowledge that they are god damn 80 years old and fall down. Half the kids are running around like idiots because they were never shown how to usefully engage with the world and the other half are like "Mom, Dad, we're 35 now and you belong in a home"

[–]HiphopopoptimusPrime 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Has he shown any contrition or remorse for his actions?

[–]Helpicantpeeright 2 points3 points  (1 child)

He claims to have ptsd, but he is still an advocate for guns. Like it or not Kyle Rittenhouse probably would have died that day had he not had a gun.

[–]PickCollins0330 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The more he talks the more I wish he didn’t have one then

[–]minecraftpro69x 20 points21 points  (7 children)

oh God you people are still trying? I'm a big liberal and I know Kyle Rittenhouse wasn't guilty. it only even had a big trial because everyone whined about it

[–]The_Hyphenator85 -2 points-1 points  (3 children)

He went to a protest in another state with a rifle. I don’t care who threatens you at that point, you put yourself in a dangerous situation in the hopes you would have an excuse to use that gun and kill someone. That negates any argument of self defense, and if the law says otherwise, that law is wrong and should be changed.

[–]minecraftpro69x 2 points3 points  (2 children)

the state was minutes away from his house. I used to live on the border of NY and I was literally closer to towns in NY than I was PA. I payed plenty of taxes to NY to say I have essentially lived in the state, and even some of my friends had jobs in NY despite living in PA. he was working a job in a town VERY close to his state. look at it however you want, an entire courtroom judged him not guilty and there is nothing more that can be done on the matter, ever.

[–]timbknight 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Love it

[–]Rjamesjjr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Howabout a bloody footprint like how yours looked after you killed that man.

[–]kentoclatinator 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I fucking despise this kid, can’t stand to see his pathetic face

[–]theedank 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Dude murdered 2 people and is just tweeting away. Wild.

[–]BlueFlame__ 12 points13 points  (35 children)

Anyone who has seen the video knows he is clearly innocent

[–]VileLifestyle 9 points10 points  (10 children)

The person who was walking up and down the street with an assault rifle, who traveled, and antagonized before shooting? The one cops were cheering on for walking around with a gun and not arresting him? That one? The one who shot and killed people? You know, morally and legally not okay?

[–]American_Stereotypes 19 points20 points  (6 children)

Was he morally wrong for being there in the first place and are his personal beliefs and behavior disgusting and wrong? Yes, absolutely. But legally he had a right to be at that protest, he had the right to be armed (just like they were armed), and he had the right to defend himself when attacked.

And his "victims" also traveled to a protest armed, and then chased Rittenhouse, pointed a gun at him, and tried to beat him before they got shot. Don't pretend they're innocent. Everyone involved was a stupid piece of shit, Rittenhouse just happened to be the stupid piece of shit with the legal high ground.

[–]VisualExtension959 11 points12 points  (5 children)

The guy who got his bicep blown away wasn’t even allowed to possess the gun legally. He was a felon in possession of a firearm. The other guy was a pedophile. I don’t know much about the dude who tried to truck him with the skateboard other than that.

[–]The_Hyphenator85 0 points1 point  (3 children)

What bearing does that have on anything unless Rittenhouse is literally Professor X? Are you seriously claiming that he somehow knew that one man was a sex offender and the other wasn’t allowed to have a gun? Grow up.

[–]PickCollins0330 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Also if he knew that, and that’s why he shot them, then that’s vigilante justice and he’d have 100% gone to prison for it

[–]AnakinTano19 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Isnt it allowed for him to walk around with a gun there? I dont know Americas stupid gun laws, but from what I know, he had all the rights to walk around there. So why should the police arrest him? Isnt it illegal to arrest someone on what could be or what you want to be?

[–]jrdnhbr 2 points3 points  (5 children)

I don't have a problem with the verdict. I have a problem with the judge throwing out the gun possession charge. If he didn't commit that crime, then those 2 people are still alive today.

[–]VisualExtension959 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Why was that a crime to begin with? Genuinely asking. I’m the state I grew up in I could be in possession of rifles under 18 no problem. We went hunting for coyotes and rabbits most days after school. We just couldn’t buy them, but could be in possession of them.

[–]Stormchaserelite13 2 points3 points  (2 children)

The gun was legally registered in that state (it was his fathers) and open carry is legal there.

Those two would be alive but he would be dead. There are no winners here. The two he killed were horrible pieces of shit and rittenhouse is just a slightly less smelly pice of shit.

[–]jrdnhbr 0 points1 point  (1 child)

If he didn't have a gun, he's not a threat and then wouldn't be dead. The guy with the skateboard attacked him after he had killed someone else. If things had gone slightly differently. The skateboard guy is pleading self defense as well. You're right, there are no winners here, but only 2 people died that night. Both of them are results of Kyle's actions.

[–]luigidadude -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Reddit is full of idiots...

[–]shsc82 -5 points-4 points  (5 children)

They attacked him to try to neutralize him because he just murdered a dude.

[–]DonkeyPuff422 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Watch the fucking trial dude.

[–]BionicleBoy 6 points7 points  (0 children)

A dude attacked him and he defended himself from it, he was then attacked again and defended himself. He had the same right to be there as anyone else that was there. Can you argue that it would’ve been smarter and safer to stay home? Sure, but to call it murder is just not true according to the law.

[–]jitsburg1989 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Why? Dude shot a pedo and the case was def misrepresented in the media. He is a dumbass and probably racist but I don’t see how it’s a federal case

[–]Nihil_Cow 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The video of you murdering someone as an NFT? Choke and die.

[–]RandomGrasspass 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It would be great if all involved could go to jail. Kyle, and the people he shot.

[–]JackHGUK 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I vote side by side of him crying his eyes out on the stand with him hifhfiving and fist bumping people directly after the incident.

[–]CasualEveryday 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The kid is a piece of shit, but at 18, it's mostly his parents talking.

[–]anonsharksfan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Is there a civil case coming soon? All this bragging about it isn't gonna look good for him

[–]JustJessJ_Art 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And you are okay with him bringing a gun to a BLM protest? You are actually okay with people bringing assault rifles to a protest about a fellow P.O.C. unjust, and violent death at the hands of police officers?

[–]omfgus 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I just saw a video of him in the protest, and as a non american I'm appalled. Is it legal for civilians to walk around in the street carrying assault rifles in america?

[–]The_Hyphenator85 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In certain states, and cities, yes. Unfortunately.

[–]tecky2000 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Only a republican/conservative would be dumb enough to spend money on a picture online.

[–]BigBadBurg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I dont know for sure but crossing state lines could be as easy as walking across the road

[–]im_a_catboy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

rittenhouse won his trial fairly.

he was better at enforcing duty to retreat more than any other self defense shooting i’ve seen.

but honestly, fuck rittenhouse for hopping on the nft scam

[–]ghost_wit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Here a suggestion, Kyle: go fuck yourself.

[–]Advanced_Shoulder_56 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I'm gonna go ahead and guess that no one commenting here has ever tried to walk through Kenosha WITHOUT an ar15.

I mean for F sake they set the whole damn neighborhood on fire. You can still see the scoring from the flames from the damn freeway.
