A Family Picture by the Daughter of a Domestic Violence Perpetrator
I wanted to paint a picture for you today of what I see or what comes to mind when I think of my father, Mike Rinder.
He deserted our family without a word. He then harassed my brother and did so, knowing that he was diagnosed with cancer and told he had a few years to live. And gave him no support during that time.
Mike Rinder uses any platform that he has to tell lies about my family, to really put us down and say really rude, despicable, atrocious, disgusting things about us that aren’t even true—on TV, on podcasts, on whatever media outlet that he has—he’ll say it and get other people to say it. People who have no idea of the truth, only hearsay from him.
Worst of all, Mike Rinder physically attacked my mother and damaged her to such an extreme that she will never, ever recover for the rest of her life. And she's going to be and is in pain every single day of her life. And this was a woman that he was married to for decades and had—was the mother of two of his children, my brother and I.
And not only was Mike Rinder standing there in a rage, attacking my mother—which is crazy enough—but he did it in front of his daughter, which was myself, and his brother and other witnesses. The guy is not right in head.
Then Mike Rinder spins his tales and uses it for his own advantage. And he uses it to gain support and continue to harass us and to augment his harassment by getting other people that know nothing about us, they don't know me from Joe on the street. They know nothing about me. They know nothing about my family. But he'll get them to spread lies about us and to harass us. And so this paints a bit of a picture of a man who's so degraded, morally, that he’s willing to do that. And he likes doing it. And continues to do it. And gets other people to do it.
A man like Mike Rinder with that character of hating people, harassing his family, harming people, abusing his wife, should not be supported.
And that’s my message and that’s my justice4mom.
If you stood in my shoes and if you were the daughter of a man who did that to people, who did that your mom, who did that to you. Imagine you are the daughter of that person. Well, now you see exactly why I have justice4mom. Because after he attacked my mom and domestically abused her—that was enough. Enough’s enough. And so I had to have a voice.
And so I made a voice for myself and I'm using it to shed light on the truth about Mike Rinder and to shed light about the type of man that he is and his characteristic—characteristics and the things that he does and the way that he is going to treat people and does treat people so that he can stop being supported.
I will continue to do my videos every single week and I will continue to shed light on the truth about Mike Rinder and his abuse of my mother until I get justice for my mom.
I’m definitely going to do everything in my power and using whatever voice that I have to—to really make sure that people know about Mike Rinder and the type of man that he is. And also to help other people that might be domestically abused and give them a voice as best I can.
And—but very, very definitely to get the support of Mike Rinder to stop.
That’s my goal: justice for my mom.
2021—the year to end
