Another side of Kyle? Wearing a T-shirt reading “Free as F–k” after being arraigned

Note: I’ve never heard that the “OK” sign is a white supremacy symbol. Here, they say it was “recently added.” How can the media know what they mean by that? Regardless, I would think Kyle would be somber, not celebrating. He was just formally charged.

The F-bomb t-shirt is what concerns me, seemingly a public display of arrogance, not humility. This doesn’t sit right.

Photos show teen gunman Kyle Rittenhouse allegedly flashing white-power symbols while downing beers with members of the Proud Boys — images prosecutors are using to stiffen his bond conditions.

The 18-year-old was celebrated by members of the right-wing group at a Wisconsin bar just 90 minutes after he was arraigned on Jan. 5 for the deadly Kenosha riots, Kenosha County prosecutors said in court documents.

Wearing a T-shirt reading “Free as F–k,” Rittenhouse was serenaded with the Proud Boys anthem, “Proud of Your Boy” — and then repeatedly made the “OK” sign, which has been “co-opted as a symbol of white supremacy/ white power” and used by neo-Nazis and the KKK, prosecutors alleged. (story)
