After State Rep. Anthony Sabatini (R-32) posted his opinion on the developing Kyle Rittenhouse case, Facebook censored the conservative legislator on their platform.

The censor consists of not being allowed to go live or advertise for an entire month for, “violating Community Standards,” especially Facebook policy on, “dangerous individuals and organizations.”

Rep. Sabatini has been one of the most proactive representatives on Big Tech.  Earlier this year Sabatini authored HB 33.  The bill titled, “Social Media Websites,” intends to, “authorize Florida’s attorney general to bring legal action on behalf of website users,” which, “would apply to any social media company that enters the stream of commerce in Florida.”

This past Summer, Governor DeSantis (R-FL) signed a bill that would stop Big Tech companies, like Facebook, from banning political candidates from their platform.

Unfortunately for Sabatini, he was still the subject of censorship.  Because of this, the representative is now calling for Big Tech to be broken up immediately.

The state representative is also a candidate for Florida’s District 7 race against the incumbent, US Rep. Stephanie Murphy (D-FL).  Sabatini has always been known as one of the most conservative legislators in the State House, however, his appeal will be interesting against the self-described, “Blue Dog Democrat,” Rep. Murphy.
