Rittenhouse Censorship on Facebook Comes To An End

Facebook has reversed a policy implemented in August 2020, which banned searches of Kyle Rittenhouse. The company did not say why it reversed the policy.

On August 25, 2020, Kyle Rittenhouse shot and killed two people and injured one during riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Some condemned Rittenhouse and considered him a “dangerous vigilante.” Others saw him as a hero who was protecting businesses from rioters and was acting in self-defense – to which a jury unanimously agreed.

The story and the ensuing debate were trending on social platforms. Facebook opted for censorship of Rittenhouse’s name, making it difficult for people to see the true facts about the case.

Facebook’s Director of Dangerous Organizations and Individuals team Brian Fishman said that the company had deemed the incident a mass murder so it removed the accounts of Rittenhouse on Facebook and Instagram.

The company also “blocked searches of his name” and “per standard practice in these situations,” removed “praise and support of the shooter.”

On November 19, Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges, including one count of attempted first-degree homicide and two counts of first-degree homicide.

In a statement, Facebook has confirmed that it had reversed the policy on banning Rittenhouse searches but it refused to provide more details.

Rittenhouse is currently considering defamation lawsuits against those he feels falsely maligned his character.

  1. As for myself I am completely and entirely finished with Facebook Twitter Zuckerberg and the rest. In short “Facebook” you have been cancelled. See how that works both ways? I absolutely refuse to be a part of the leftist cancel culture and it’s inability to tolerate opposing views. This recent trend is as anti American as anything I’ve experienced. Those of you whom choose to behave in such a manner I wish you good luck when your time comes and believe me it will come. Leftist ideology makes no distinction between supporters and detractors. In other words when the limits are pushed by an authoritarian regime inevitably you will be disgruntled and you will be no exception. So rave on leftist idiots because you are calling for your own demise.

    • Sorry, “Human.” You’re nothing more than collateral damage. Facebook has always been fully aware that some portion of the public would resist the lure of social media. They’re totally willing to make that sacrifice. As it is, they’re wildly more successful than they could have dreamed.

      The only way I know of to combat the push of statist totalitarianism is to resist actively, not passively. Refuse to use their system, and tell Facebook advertisers that you’re boycotting them.

  2. I agree, but I do love to see articles that I know that the left liberals will not read elsewhere, and pot them to the Facebook, because that is the BIBLE for most of the left liberal morons. I do not post anything personnel just the articles that show the demorhoids in a bad light, or Biden doing the gaffes, Heels UP Harris on her tours of other countries but will not go to the border. But now that she has been ” to Europe, she may go to the Border……..! But if it is on Facebook, these leftist liberals can’t miss it!

  3. I am so happy that he was exonerated. He was protecting himself, and these Biden and Harris thugs did not realize that he may have been alone, but he knew how to fend for himself. I pray for him every day, and hope he stays safe. Never know what these BLM and Antifa, and the left morons will do!
