Facebook Decided He Was Guilty Before the Trial

so, saying otherwise was “misinformation”.

Facebook Reportedly Censored Pro-Kyle Rittenhouse Posts Throughout Saga | The Daily Wire

The New York Post’s editorial board wrote on Thursday that “barely a week” after Rittenhouse shot three people during Black Lives Matter riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Facebook announced that it had “designated the shooting in Kenosha a mass murder and are removing posts in support of the shooter.”

“Just for starters: Killing two people is mass murder now? Sure looks like the social-media giant’s staff just reached for the nearest excuse to suppress posts that conflicted with their personal prejudices — and no higher-up bothered to correct the call,” the Post wrote. “The blackout went far and wide: Facebook actively policed its users for pro-Kyle Rittenhouse posts and removed the content. It even targeted posts from legal scholars arguing the merits of his self-defense case.

They were wrong. They were legally wrong.

But they are in control, so it doesn’t matter. This is a perfect example of why we need more freedom of speech on social media, not less. We need less censorship, not more.
