Kyle Rittenhouse is ready for his life to get back to normal, but some leftists are still trying to go after him.
Rittenhouse is currently taking online classes at Arizona State University.
The Arizona State University Students for Socialism, Students for Justice in Palestine, Multicultural Solidarity Coalition, and MECHA de ASU are planning a protest to demand that Rittenhouse be removed from the school, according to Fox News.
“ASU SHOULD NOT WELCOME A MURDERER ONTO THEIR CAMPUS,” a Change.org petition reads, where it also calls for Rittenhouse to be banned.
“He needs to be held accountable for the crimes he has committed. How is the law letting a murderer roam around freely? When did our society get to a point like this?!?” the petition yelled.
“We, the students of Arizona State University refuse to welcome a murderer onto our campus. ASU should be a safe and inclusive place for all students, which will be disrupted if Kyle Rittenhouse is allowed to attend this school,” the petition continued.

The four groups calling him “Murderer Kyle Rittenhouse” also want the college to “reaffirm support for the multicultural center on campus as a safe space from White Supremacy” and move away from funding that goes to the Arizona State University Police Department to the multicultural center, according to Fox.
“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,” a letter from the groups’ claims. “Join us to demand from ASU that those demands be met to protect students from a violent blood-thirsty murderer.”
A spokesman from Students for Socialism at Arizona State University released a statement making their position very clear.
“The goal of these demands is to let the ASU administration know that we as the ASU community do not feel safe knowing that a mass shooter, who has expressed violent intentions about ‘protecting property’ over people, is so carelessly allowed to be admitted to the school at all,” the spokesman said. “Our campus is already unsafe as is, and we would like to abate this danger as much as possible.”
During an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson that aired on Monday night, Rittenhouse said his legal team is in the process of going after individuals who slandered and defamed him in the media.
When Carlson asked Kyle if he planned to hold “liars to account” who defamed him, Rittenhouse responded, “I have really good lawyers who are taking care of that right now.”
“So, I’m hoping one day there will be some, there’ll be accountability for their actions that they did,” Rittenhouse said.
“Okay, so you’re intent on not, you’re not gonna let that go?” Carlson pressed.
“As I said, really good lawyers are handling that,” Rittenhouse said.
Rittenhouse also did not mince his words when discussing Kenosha County prosecutor Thomas Binger when asked about his trial and how the prosecution handled it.
Rittenhouse called Binger “a corrupt person” who wanted to use the case to “make a name for himself.”
“In my belief, the prosecutorial misconduct, in this case, is ridiculous,” Rittenhouse said. “They knew I was innocent, but they still decided to bring these charges to make their name, to have a name. They wanted my head on their shelf.”
