Commentary: Twitter Says People Are ‘Glorifying Violence’ Bans Them for Defending Rittenhouse

We might as well stop Kyle Rittenhouse’s trial now, because Big Tech bosses on Twitter have already pointed out his guilt.

They can still decide what is true at that moment.

Rittenhouse, 18, faces murder and other charges related to the shooting of three men, two of them fatally, during an August 2020 riot. Rittenhouse shot and killed 36-year-old Joseph Rosenbaum and 26-year-old Anthony Huber and Gage Groskretz. was injured.
