Kyle Rittenhouse, right, and his attorney Corey Chirafisi listen during the trial at the Kenosha County Courthouse in Wisconsin .last week. Jury deliberations are scheduled to begin this week. Twitter has been suspending users who defend Rittenhouse’s innocence, but not those of users who claim the teen is guilty of murder. (Sean Krajacic – Pool / Getty Images) We might as well stop the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse now, because the Big Tech overlords over at Twitter have already determined his guilt.
They’re the ones who get to decide what the truth is nowadays anyway.
The 18-year-old Rittenhouse faces homicide and other charges related to the shooting of three men, two of them fatally, during the unrest of August 2020. Rittenhouse shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, and injured Gaige Grosskreutz.
According to multiple court reports and witnesses, Rosenbaum chased down Rittenhouse and lunged for the teenager’s gun , Huber assaulted Rittenhouse with a skateboard and Grosskreutz advanced on Rittenhouse, pointing a gun at him at the time the three men were shot.
Despite this evidence, it appears that Twitter is suspending and/ or banning any user who claims Rittenhouse is innocent.
Should those users wish to remain on the platform, they are being forced to delete their tweets.
Bill Zeiser of Real Clear Politics began noticing this trend on Wednesday. Saw claims of users being suspended for tweeting things like “Kyle Rittenhouse did nothing wrong,” ostensibly b/c it glorifies violence. Is Twitter TOS legitimately against arguing about self-defense? Or are people word searching for Kyle Rittenhouse tweets & mass reporting? pic.twitter.com/JvyfcpCrqS — Bill Zeiser (@BillZeiser) November 10, 2021 “Saw claims of users being suspended for tweeting things like ‘Kyle Rittenhouse did nothing wrong,’ ostensibly b/c it glorifies violence. Is Twitter TOS legitimately against arguing about self-defense? Or are people word searching for Kyle Rittenhouse tweets & mass reporting?” Zieser asked on Twitter.
The answer to Zieser’s question appears to be a definitive yes. After all, look at all of these suspensions: Twitter suspended my account because I called Kyle Rittenhouse a hero. They claimed I was “glorifying violence”. What a joke. […]
One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
