All Americans are under attack right now.
We’re under attack from the media.
We’re under attack from the government.
We’re under attack from the woke mob.
That means that we must support one another during these trying times.
That precisely what Mark and Patricia McCloskey are doing for Kyle Rittenhouse.

Fox News interviewed the couple minutes from the Kenosha County Courthouse where Rittenhouse faces homicide charges after he shot three people, killing two, while he was lying prone in the street being beaten by several attackers in the middle of a riot in August 2020.

Mark McCloskey said that he thinks the evidence is very strong that Kyle acted in self-defense:
