Arizona Central reports that College Republicans United at Arizona State University has set up a fundraiser for 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, who is charged with first-degree murder after shooting and killing two protesters in Kenosha, Wisc., and wounding a third. The paper also reports that College Republicans United “split from the more mainline ASU College Republicans chapter in recent years.”
Arizona Central’s Rachel Leingang passes along that when contacted by the paper about the fundraiser, the group was less than forthcoming.
ASU student group College Republicans United is raising funds for Kenosha protest shooter Kyle Rittenhouse. The group told an @azcentral reporter “they do not speak to journalists with pronouns on their Twitter page" and to "get a real job.” https://t.co/U87WUCvqC3

Just saw a teeny, tiny sparkle of free speech, free thinking, and the option to donate however you choose. Imagine that on a college campus.

At least they didn’t tell the reporter to educate themselves in a computer programming language.
If you think you don’t need to put your preferred pronouns in your bio, that’s transphobia https://t.co/anxwHvGYGk
