Kyle Rittenhouse has apparently decided that it is time for him to become a millionaire, as he has retained the services of Attorney Todd McMurtry. If you recognize that name, it’s because he was the one who turned Nicholas Sandmann into a multi-millionaire through a lawsuit against CNN. And it appears that he will treat Kyle similarly.

In reality, Rittenhouse suffered far worse defamation than Sandmann ever did. Kyle was treated like a serial killer.

It looks that Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook will be their first priority. The social media giant Facebook is more at risk than CNN was during the Sandmann era. That’s because they censored anyone who ascribed to Kyle’s actions as self-defense in addition to labeling him a mass murderer.

Didn’t anyone over there double-check their information or watch the videos that were easily accessible? That was meant to be rhetorical. Of course, they were attempting to sway public opinion prior to a trial, but it was unsuccessful.

Kyle’s attorney said,

McMurty said:

“Let’s just use for an example, what Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg said about [Rittenhouse]. They said that he was involved in a mass murder incident. This was not a mass murder incident. It was clearly factually false.”

“To call somebody a mass murderer is seriously defamatory. And then to use the power of social media to basically censor any views that would take opposition to that mass murderer statement is a serious effort to destroy his character. And it was seriously mistaken and seriously defamatory.”

“Facebook has an outsized voice, they can do a lot of damage, as compared to somebody maybe who has a small blog with 100 subscribers. But we’re going to look at everything that we have access to and that’s been published, and decide which ones are actionable.”

Now, do I believe that this lawsuit could really end Facebook? No, they have far too much money to be ruined. If CNN can withstand a $250 million lawsuit from Nick Sandmann, then Facebook aka Meta can withstand something similar. Regardless, this lawsuit is going to be massive.

  • Well part of the suit could include saying sorry on every channel and net work world wide on prim time! That would hurt the snow flakes more than the millions they will never feel! And reinstating every single person he tried to silence ! And paying them each a thousand! That would break him!

    • Farcebook should be prevented from any form of censorship other than actual criminal activity like child porn, and their bogus “fact-checking” needs to be stopped! Hate speech is completely arbitrary. Saying something derogatory about someone else that is based on facts is NOT hate speech, it is truth. What was done to Kyle is the opposite – it was derogatory and based on lies. I hope Kyle takes them for all he can!

  • Facebook, Twitter, CNN, MSNBC and Google have been pretty much able to say what they wish, do what they wish with little pushback. Maybe this is going to make them a little less woke and more awake when the stock holders take some hits. Perhaps this is just the beginning and maybe there could be some class action suits in the making. It will be hard to hide or deflect when it moves into the legal arena where their influence is minimal. Pay attention ABC, NBC and CBS; you sloppy biased reporting may bring you down also.

    • We seriously need an amendment to prevent the media, government, education, and anyone else who has the ability to influence the people’s thinking, from deliberately providing false information and lies. Free speech is different than deliberately lying to the masses; if it wasn’t then you couldn’t be charged with perjury!

  • The amount of monetary award must be “massive”. For the next 100 years, anyone learning of the amount must conclude that they would not pay such an amount, except that they were obviously wrong.

  • Ok so he says he can sue FB what about a class action from everyone who was damaged or defamed joining together and sue for a billion?

    • Everyone that has been in facebook jail or their account was shutdown for conservative views since the Rittenhouse incident, should receive $1 million!

      • There is clearly potential for MILLIONS of individuals and thousands of class action lawsuits being brought against FB and other private companies who maintain what are clearly in effect PUBLIC FORMS. These lawsuits will seek and could be awarded
        MASSIVE PUNITIVE damages to effectively fine and punish them for intentionally depriving and suppressing US citizens of their First Amendment right to freely express themselves by effectively communicating with others, and to dissuade if not prevent them from continuing to do so. To the extent that FB and others can be shown to have acted in obedience to or in compliance with actors or agents of the Federal Government, any legitimate claim of theirs to regulate content as PRIVATE entities will disappear and leave them fully exposed.

  • Near my home, police officers were ambushed and shot, 3 died along with their K9. Our courts were considering punishment, death penalty being on the table. Now I realize dim libs are not fans of police and promote defunding them. But, capital punishment is legal in 29 states, and for this crime, I posted in favor of that. FB Nazis declared that hate speech and sentenced me to 30 days in their gulag, not my first.
    Read the new terms of FB service.
    I’m no atty, but it appears once their dim lib biased opinion firmly establish one is a threat, they will notify your local law enforcement to be aware. I closed my account.
    FYI- FB makes money from advertisers based on subscriber #’s.

  • I’m tired of idiots referring to the USA as “our Democracy” because it was established as a Republic. Democracy is the same as mob rule. Of course, that is what they want the USA to become!
