“Monster” Lin Wood & “In Need Of Prayer” Marjorie Taylor Greene Face Off Over Kyle Rittenhouse

30


Kyle Rittenhouse, charged with murder after admitting he shot at multiple people at a Black Lives Matter protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, has a lot of vocal support from a long list of right-wing political figures. However, there’s a lot of infighting between his various supporters, as well as allegations that they’re using Rittenhouse for their own political and financial goals.

Lin Wood, an attorney who is well-known for espousing q-anon conspiracy theories and calling for the military to step in and force a redo of the 2020 election, was involved in the case and fundraising, but was fired last year. Now the family has accused him, and another attorney, John Pierce, of using the case for his own financial gain.

A Law & Crime article goes into great detail about the allegations by Wendy Rittenhouse, the mother of the accused shooter.

Now Marjorie Taylor Greene, who took office this year as a Republican Representative from Georgia, is latching onto Rittenhouse’s case in advance of his trial, and she and Lin Wood appear to be on the outs.

Greene tweeted the above-referenced article, saying Wood “lifts his bible high and lies” and “is not one of us.” (She also labeled the accused killer a “child” — Rittenhouse was 17 at the time of the shootings and when he was charged with murder, but has since turned 18 and will go to trial as a legal adult.)

Wood took exception to this, sharing the tweet on his Telegram account and saying that she should have spoken to him before tweeting, because he would have shared his negative opinions about Law & Crime, the author of the article, and David Hancock, who was a former director of #FightBack, the organization through which Wood was fundraising for Rittenhouse.

This is when Wendy Rogers, a state senator for Arizona chimed in, saying that the two should “work it out” and work together to “further God’s kingdom and the MAGA agenda.”

Wood seems to have appreciated this — he posted again to Telegram, thanking her, saying he forgives Greene, and that he’ll pray for her.

Greene wasn’t done, though. She tweeted further, again describing Kyle Rittenhouse as an innocent and declaring Wood a “monster” for using his case for financial gain.

She also posted to her Telegram account, again calling for her followers to read the article from Law & Crime, and declaring Wood a man who “constantly uses Bible verses to manipulate others and deceive them in his lies,” and saying that Wood shouldn’t pray for her, because “we don’t serve the same God.”

Oh and Lin Wood claims he’s praying for me.

Don’t pray for me Lin Wood.

We don’t serve the same God because it’s clear you’re serving the father of lies.

Wood fired back once more, saying that Greene is being influenced by the devil, and that anyone who says “don’t pray for me” needs prayers the most, and that he won’t stop.

I pray for Marjorie Taylor Greene. I did so last night before her Telegram message below and I will do so again today after seeing it…The devil is not God, Marjorie. The devil is a liar, Marjorie. Ask God to protect you from the devil’s efforts to influence you, Marjorie.

While these two carry out a public battle over who supports Kyle Rittenhouse more and which one worships the correct God, Rittenhouse is due in court in just a few weeks to face five felonies, which USA Today reported on in January when he pled ‘not guilty’ to them:

…first degree intentional homicide in the death of Joseph Rosenbaum, 36; first degree reckless homicide of Anthony Huber, 26, attempted first degree intentional homicide of Gaige Grosskreutz, 22, and two counts of recklessly endangering safety, for shots fired at others.

Rittenhouse and his defenders say that the shots were fired in self-defense, after the father of a friend helped him obtain the weapon, which he was not old enough to buy, and traveled from his home in Illinois to Kenosha, where he used the gun to ‘patrol’ while declaring himself the protector of a used-car business during the protest.
