My Pillow guy helps spring alleged killer Kyle Rittenhouse from jail — because it's 2020, yo

2 min read

Did you have this one on your road to the apocalypse bingo card? A 17-year-old kid brings an AR-15 to a protest, kills two people and wounds another, and eventually gets sprung from jail with the help of the My Pillow guy and the kid from Silver Spoons.

Of course that happened, because, well, 2020.

The New York Daily News:

The teenage gunman charged with killing two Black Lives Matter protesters in Wisconsin this summer walked out of jail Friday afternoon after posting $2 million bail.
Kyle Rittenhouse, 17, was released from custody around 2 p.m. and handed over to his own security detail after his attorneys posted bond on his behalf, according to the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department.

Okay, that’s weird enough, but it gets weirder, because how could it not?

Supporters have been donating money for his bail, and a lawyer Friday said cash from former “Silver Spoons” and “NYPD Blue” actor Ricky Schroeder and My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell helped spring Rittenhouse.
“KYLE RITTENHOUSE IS OUT OF JAIL.” attorney Lin Wood tweeted. “God bless ALL who donated to help #FightBack raise required $2M cash bail. Special thanks to Actor Ricky Schroder … & Mike Lindell … for putting us over the top.”

So Kyle Rittenhouse, who looks to me (and to most people, for that matter) like a murderer, is now a conservative folk hero.

As are these two fine people:

So why do all these “heroes” look like henchperson applicants the Joker never called in for a second interview? 

Hard to believe there are still people out there who don’t believe in white privilege.
