Antifa 'Medic' Who Attacked Kyle Rittenhouse Whines About Pain

The so-called Antifa “medic” who tried to shoot Kyle Rittenhouse as he lay in the Kenosha, Wisconsin, street on August 25 and ended up getting his bicep nearly blown off recently did a whiny interview with CNN.

And, as you might expect, CNN made him out to be the victim of a crazed young rightwing nutcase instead of an attacker shot before he could hurt Rittenhouse, who was fleeing and fell down in the street.

Anyone who watched the videos, taken during the episode that night and easily accessible on YouTube, can clearly see 22-year Gaige Grosskreutz pausing, then lunging at Rittenhouse with a Glock in his hand during the incident. Rittenhouse fired his AR once, blowing away a significant part of Grosskreutz upper arm.

Grosskreutz, however, has played the victim card from the beginning, telling CNN he was just a typical peaceful protestor who has been in constant pain since that night. Of course, he had a gun in his hand, but nobody in the so-called “mainstream” media seems to be interested if he really intended to use it.


“I was shot point blank with a .223 round from the shooter,” Grosskreutz told CNN during the interview. “And I am now missing 90 percent of my bicep. This has not been easy emotionally, physically. I’m in constant pain, like excruciating pain that just doesn’t go away—both in my arm, in my heart.”


While it’s unlikely he is in much more pain than Rittenhouse would have been if Grosskreutz had shot him with the Glock he held or if another attacker had continued to beat him with a skateboard, Grosskreutz still played the victim card until the end of the interview.

“The shooter walked away and got to sleep in their bed that night,” said Grosskreutz, who claimed he was not an Antifa terrorist rioter, despite running toward Rittenhouse with his gun drawn. “Some people didn’t get that luxury—two people that night, myself (as well), didn’t get that luxury.”

While Grosskreutz and the media want people to think he is just an innocent “peaceful protestor,” the truth is quite the opposite. Grosskreutz is a member of the Communist group People’s Revolution Movement of Milwaukee, and the bandana he was wearing at the time he was shot had printed on it the sigil of Baphomet, the official insignia of the Church of Satan.

Additionally, a Facebook post from one of Grosskreutz’s friends the night of the shooting is quite telling. The friend wrote that Grosskreutz regrets not killing Rittenhouse when he had the chance.


Perhaps if Grosskreutz had minded his own business and not, handgun in hand, charged a man armed with an AR-15, he’d be in a lot less pain right now.

For his part, despite being arrested for murder, Rittenhouse continues to claim the shooting was self-defense. And anyone who has closely watched all the available video would conclude that is indeed highly likely, as both times he fired shots at anyone he was fleeing from attackers.

In a statement to NBC News, John Pierce, Rittenhouse’s lawyer, said, “This was classic self-defense and we are going to prove it. We will obtain justice for Kyle no matter how hard the fight or how long it takes.”
