Doesn’t Twitter have all sorts of fact-checking partners to make sure that the platform is free from misinformation? Earlier this month, Rep. Pramila Jayapal marked the eighth anniversary of the “murder” of Michael Brown by Officer Darren Wilson. (A couple of years earlier, Vice President Kamala Harris had also noted the anniversary of his murder.) The complicating factor here is that Wilson was cleared of all charges by President Barack Obama’s Justice Department, headed by Eric Holder. The medical examiner determined that Brown was charging Wilson when he was shot, proving the whole “Hands up, don’t shoot” claim was bogus.

Now it’s just a couple of weeks later, and gun control group Brady is marking the second anniversary of the murder of two men in Kenosha, Wisconsin by “a teen armed with an AR-15,” also known as Kyle Rittenhouse.

Senseless violence? We saw the video from several angles, and that “assault weapon” made a lot of sense in the circumstances. And we’re not sure we’d want to be sued by Rittenhouse for calling him a murderer after he was found not guilty on all counts last November.

So Brady is claiming that Rittenhouse is a murderer and suggesting that they don’t believe in self-defense. We can’t even count the number of lies spread about Rittenhouse that we’ve covered, but it looks like Brady just wants to get sued.

It’s also a nice touch that Brady made up a nice Twitter banner reading “Remember Kenosha,” because obviously, they don’t.
