Reminder: Social Media v. Rittenhouse

Rittenhouse Takes the Stand | Power Line (powerlineblog.com)

All of this reminds us that over a year ago, Facebook banned any expression of support for Rittenhouse, apparently deeming him a “mass murderer.” Twitter also locked the account of Rittenhouse’s lawyer, and a police officer was fired for donating to his defense. This incident illustrates, like so many others, the danger of social media behemoths shutting down discussion of matters that should be very much up for debate.

You weren’t allowed to support someone who hasn’t done anything wrong.

The narrative is far more important than the truth.
