NDP’s Matthew Green called Kyle Rittenhouse, the young man exonerated by courts for acting in self-defense, a “multiple serial killer.” 

NDP member calls exonerated Rittenhouse ‘serial killer’

Green was questioning GiveSendGo founder Jacob Wells during the Special Joint Committee on the Declaration of the Emergencies Act.

GiveSendGo is a Christian-based crowdfunding platform. Freedom Convoy supporters used GiveSendGo after the Trudeau Liberals demanded GoFundMe freeze more than $10 million of raised funds.

On Thursday, Wells told the Committee that GiveSendGo’s mission is to “share the hope of Jesus through Crowdfunding.”

Green asked if GiveSendGo applied the same mission to Rittenhouse.

“Did you do that with multiple serial killer Kyle Rittenhouse, sir, when you raised funds for him?”

“Serial killer Kyle Rittenhouse? You prayed with him and raised money for him?” Green asked.

Wells appeared taken aback before informing Green that the courts exonerated Rittenhouse.

Last year, Rittenhouse shot three Black Lives Matter (BLM) rioters, which resulted in two of them dying. He was found not guilty of any of the five charges against him, determined by the jury to have acted in self-defense.

Numerous individuals and outlets defamed Rittenhouse before his exoneration. In September, Rittenhouse said many lawsuits were in the works, but none had been filed.

Green subsequently spread more fake news by stating that a police officer at the January 6 US Capitol was murdered. Green was questioning Wells about why his platform provided a crowdfunding for January 6 rally attendees. 

Wells said the crowdfunding was for people to afford flights and hotels to attend the Trump rally on January 6 in DC.

“Was that a lawful rally, which resulted in the murder of a police officer – a capital hill police officer?” Green asked.

“Was an officer not murdered – I’m sorry sir, I’m not from the United States,” he added.

“Not to my understanding, no,” said Wells. 

“Well perhaps we have better access to your media than you do,” Green replied.

No police officers died during the January 6 Capitol riot. One police officer died one to two days later of natural causes. 

President Biden has also spread this misinformation that Green mistakenly assumed to be true.

The Counter Signal reached out the NDP’s Matthew Green to inquire if he stands by his allegations but did not hear back before publication.
