Facebook Will No Longer Allow Users To Show Support For Kyle Rittenhouse; Here’s The Lame Excuse For Why
(Tea Party 247) – You know, one of the very reasons the Second Amendment exists in America is so that folks can defend themselves from lunatic criminals like the ones in Black Lives Matter and Antifa that have gone off the deep end and are trying to destroy businesses and homes “for the cause.”
This is what Kyle Rittenhouse did in Kenosha, Wisconsin, when he sought to help protect businesses from rioters and looters and end up getting chased by several unhinged leftists, one who had a gun and was no doubt going to shoot him. He shot first, killing two of his attackers.
And yet he now faces murder charges. Unbelievable.
But it gets worse. Apparently Facebook has deemed his actions “mass murder,” — it was actually self-defense — and will not allow users to create posts in support of him and what he did.
Facebook is officially designating the actions of Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old who allegedly killed two people and wounded another in Kenosha, Wisconsin, after being mobbed and attacked by rioters, a “mass murder,” despite the fact that this has not been proven in court. Facebook confirmed that it would remove any posts that support Rittenhouse.
Conservative author and YouTube personality Mark Dice reported that his Facebook page had received a threat of suspension after he posted a video of Rittenhouse offering to give medical assistance to wounded protesters in Kenosha shortly before the shooting.
“Facebook just removed a video I posted showing Kyle Rittenhouse offering help to a wounded protester in Kenosha,” said Dice, who also posted the video on Twitter.
Facebook, he said, is now “threatening to delete my entire account.”
In a comment to Breitbart News, a Facebook spokesman confirmed that the company is removing posts “in support” of Rittenhouse, because the incident is considered a “mass murder” by the company.
“We’ve designated the shooting in Kenosha a mass murder and are removing posts in support of the shooter, including this one,” said the spokesman.

What’s outrageous is that Dice’s Facebook post wasn’t praising Rittenhouse. It merely stated the facts of what happened in the video. This is censorship. Period.
In a comment to Breitbart News, Dice said he was being deliberately careful about what he posted, because he guessed that Facebook had added Rittenhouse to its infamous “dangerous individuals” list.
“[The posts] were all very matter of fact about what happened. No praise, nor celebration, nothing like that because I figured that they added Kyle to the “dangerous individual” [list],” said Dice. “I was very careful about what I posted.”
So now two people dying is considered “mass murder?” That seems a little over dramatic, wouldn’t you agree? By moving the goal posts and attempting to redefine terms, the left is silencing their opposition. They don’t want Rittenhouse seen as a young man protecting himself because that makes radical groups like BLM and Antifa look like the bad guys.
They are, by the way, in case you weren’t for sure on that.
This is yet another example of the lengths the left is willing to go to in order to push their own agenda.
