This incident happened earlier in the month. The person in question was branded a cold-blooded left-wing Antifa killer that was hunting Trump supporters by Trump and right-wing media. At the same time, Kyle Rittenhouse was portrayed as a good citizen acting in self defense and the arrest records of two of his victims were all over the media. Trump and his supporters branded Rittenhouse a hero.
Very little notice was given that the victim in the Portland incident was a member of Patriot Prayer, a group whose main aim is to show up and confront protesters very much like the Proud Boys. Also, he had been arrested and had illegal firearms seized at a protest not long before the shooting incident.
