A new proposal in the US House of Representatives seeks to reward Kyle Rittenhouse with their highest honor: a Congressional Gold Medal.
On Tuesday, Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene submitted House Resolution 6070: "To award a Congressional Gold Medal to Kyle H. Rittenhouse, who protected the community of Kenosha, Wisconsin, during a Black Lives Matter (BLM) riot on August 25, 2020."
Greene told The Post Millennial that "Democrats planted the seeds of chaos and stoked violence in cities all across our country for a year. Communities suffered billions in damages by BLM / Antifa domestic terrorists, all while the media cheered it on. A 17 year-old boy stepped forward when most men stayed home. Kyle Rittenhouse deserves to be remembered as a hero who defended his community, protected businesses, and acted lawfully in the face of lawlessness. I’m proud to file this legislation to award Kyle Rittenhouse a Congressional Gold Medal."
Given the current level of Democrat control in the House of Representatives and the Senate, it’s unlikely that H.R. 6070 will make it any further than that in terms of congressional procedure
The corporate media is monitoring the situation to see whether or not the bill gets any co-sponsors.
A spokesman for Matt Gaetz told The Washington Post: "We are concerned that awarding Kyle with a Congressional Gold Medal will give him a big head during the internship with our office."
Republican Rep. Madison Cawthorn as well as Matt Gaetz have expressed their desires to have Kyle Rittenhouse intern for their offices.
The same day Greene introduced this measure, it was revealed that former President Trump got the chance to meet Kyle Rittenhouse at his Mar-a-Lago home. Trump’s reaction was that he thought Kyle was "really a nice young man."
Elsewhere, an Oklahoma state senator filed Senate Bill 1120, otherwise known as "Kyle’s Law" as a proposal. The measure would seek to ensure protection against victims of "malicious prosecution."
The kid from Kenosha gave his first formal interview with Tucker Carlson on Fox News earlier this week. Over 5 million people watched the show in a timeslot that crushed the numbers of MSNBC and CNN combined. It was there Rittenhouse had the chance to explain how his lawyers are "taking care of" potential defamation lawsuits, and reveal the treatment his case received in the hands of earlier lawyers.
In response to the verdict, the Biden administration stood by how Joe depicted and described Rittenhouse on the 2020 campaign trail. With that said, Nick Sandmann of Covington Catholic on Sunday revealed he made contact with Kyle and described him as being "in great spirits."
