Twitter has disabled the retweet function on a tweet from Kyle Rittenhouse’s mother, in which she condemned Big Tech censorship of her son.
The social media company has not censored libelous claims or violent fantasies against him from those who believe that the teenager is guilty.
Twitter has disabled the RT button on #KyleRittenhouse’s mother’s tweet telling about extreme censorship.
Communism in America is real.
If we don’t fit their narrative, the left works together to make us disappear.
You can’t erase us, we out number you.
And I won’t back down. pic.twitter.com/THs1h1Dhej

On Friday, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene posted a screenshot of Wendy Rittenhouse’s tweet and wrote “Twitter has disabled the RT button on #KyleRittenhouse’s mother’s tweet telling about extreme censorship.”
“Communism in America is real,” Greene continued. “If we don’t fit their narrative, the left works together to make us disappear.”
“You can’t erase us, we out number you,” the congresswoman asserted. “And I won’t back down.”
In the censored Tweet, Wendy Rittenhouse wrote, “the media & many who know better viciously lied about my son from he start. Tech companies tried to crush & deplatform @freekyleusa over 20x, often w/o explanation.”
“We are facing tremendous expenses to help Kyle win this case & could use your help,” she continued, linking to a donation page.
Wendy’s account has since been set to private.
The mother’s plea for help was censored, yet tweets asserting the teenagers guilt or wishing him harm remain active.
For example, Ilhan Omar had once tweeted that Rittenhouse is a “domestic terrorist” and that he “executed two people.”
“A domestic terrorist executed two people, and according to Tucker and his supporters this is ‘maintaining order.’ Their murderous rants have inspired many mass shooters and now they aren’t even trying to distance themselves from it, they are excusing it. God help us,” Rep. Omar wrote, without censorship.
A radio host named Tara Dublin posted sick fantasies about the teenager being raped in prison, her account also remains uncensored.
Closing arguments in the trial are scheduled to begin on Monday.
