Far-left organizations are organizing at Arizona State University in an attempt to get Kyle Rittenhouse kicked out of school, falsely calling him a “racist murderer” despite a jury finding him not guilty of all charges two weeks ago in his murder trial.
The Arizona State University Students for Socialism, Students for Justice in Palestine, Multicultural Solidarity Coalition, and MECHA de ASU are holding an event dubbed, “RALLY AND PROTEST TO GET MURDERER KYLE RITTENHOUSE OFF OUR CAMPUS,” set to be held on campus on Wednesday, December 1st, at 3:30 p.m.
The group demanded the following:
- WITHDRAW KYLE RITTENHOUSE FROM ASU.
- RELEASE A STATEMENT AGAINST WHITE SUPREMACY & RACIST MURDERER KYLE RITTENHOUSE.
- REAFFIRM SUPPORT FOR THE MULTICULTURAL CENTER ON CAMPUS AS A SPACE SAFE FROM WHITE SUPREMACY.
- REDIRECT FUNDING FROM ASU PD TO SUPPORT MULTICULTURAL CENTER AND ESTABLISHMENT OF A CAARE [sic] CENTER ON CAMPUS.
“Even with a not-guilty verdict from a flawed ‘justice’ system – Kyle Rittenhouse is still guilty to his victims and the families of those victims,” the group stated. “Join us to demand from ASU that these demands be met to protect students from a violent, blood-thirsty murderer.”
The group said that it will be holding a sign-making event today at 6 p.m.

The far-left protest comes after Rittenhouse told Fox News host Tucker Carlson during a recent interview that he was a student at ASU and that he intended to go to school on campus and pursue a career in nursing.
A jury found Rittenhouse not guilty of murder for fatally shooting two men and injuring a third during riots last year in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
The Daily Wire reported:
Rittenhouse, who is now 18, lives in Antioch, a northern suburb of Chicago about 15 miles from Kenosha. On August 25 of last year when he was 17, Rittenhouse decided to patrol the downtown Kenosha area alongside other armed men in order to protect a used car dealership from looting and vandalism. The city had devolved into rioting over the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a black man, by a white Kenosha police officer.
Rittenhouse took a medical kit and armed himself with a Smith & Wesson M&P15, which is an AR-15 style semi-automatic rifle that police say his friend illegally bought for him.
While guarding the used car dealership, he was chased by protesters and ended up fatally shooting two people, Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber, and injuring a third, Gaige Grosskreutz. The defendant and the three men he shot are all white.
He was arrested and charged with five felony charges and one misdemeanor charge. The most serious charge was intentional homicide, Wisconsin’s top murder charge, which carries a mandatory sentence of life in prison. The others were reckless homicide, attempted homicide, two counts of reckless endangerment, and being a minor illegally in possession of a firearm.
On Monday, the judge dismissed the misdemeanor firearm charge, which was considered the easiest charge for the state to prove. Previously, Rittenhouse was also charged with violating curfew, but that charge was dismissed last week by the judge as well.
