MATT WALSH (HOST): I don't blame the kid for this. I don't think it's fair at all to criticize him. He's worried for his own safety and his family's safety, number one. And also, remember something: The Democrats are pushing for a federal investigation. They have not let this go. And they're not going to let it go. They're going to pursue this man – this young man for the rest of his life. But now they're pushing for a federal investigation so I'm sure from Kyle Rittenhouse's perspective, and I'm sure he's also been told this by his lawyer – I don't know that, but I would assume that his lawyers maybe have said something like this – that if he makes any comments, publicly, that could at all be construed as in any way critical of BLM, then that will open the door for them to, you know, come after him officially. It shouldn't be that way, of course, but that's how it is. 

So, I wouldn't criticize him at all after everything he's been through to say that. Still, it does show what sort of stranglehold leftist grievance organizations like BLM have. That even Kyle Rittenhouse after BLM – I mean, they are the ones who tried to lynch him. They are the lynch mob here. And even after going through all of that, he will still say – feels like he has to say that he supports the very lynch mob that came after him. I say that not as a criticism of Kyle Rittenhouse but more of the lynch mob itself. That this is the society they've created.
