Facebook announced Friday that it will end former President Trump’s suspension on January 7, 2023, two years after his account was taken away. In addition, they announced that two years will be the maximum punishment for those public figures guilty of inciting mobs during times of civil unrest.

Trump’s Facebook account was suspended following the riots on Jan 6 At first, the social media’s Oversight Board upheld Trump’s suspension. However, they criticized its duration. The board asked that leadership, including Vice President Nick Clegg, review Trump’s suspension.

As a result, Clegg said they would change the nature of the ban. The board gave Facebook six-month-deadline to come to a decision. Facebook came to its decision after a month. Now, the Oversight Board will review the response again, and determine if it is proportional.

Now, public figures face suspension between one month and two years for violating Facebook’s policies during times of “ongoing violence” and “civil unrest.” And, should Trump violate the rules again after this suspension ends, he could still be up for permanent removal.

Uvalde, TX Mayor Calls Beto O’Rourke a ‘Sick Son of a B****’ After he Heckled Gov. Abbott’s Presser

The vile act of politicizing horrific tragedies such as the Uvalde, Texas elementary school massacre, has been in full force. Democrat Beto O’Rourke “was escorted out of Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s press conference Wednesday after he showed up and heckled the governor in the middle of an update on the elementary school massacre in Uvalde” reports The Blaze.

Beto is a former congressman from El Paso, Texas as well as a Democratic presidential nominee briefly for the 2020  elections. During his time, he campaigned hard on his support for a mandatory gun buyback scheme.

The Blaze reported on Beto’s behavior at Abbott’s press conference:

As Abbott was finishing his remarks to reporters, O’Rourke, the Democratic candidate for governor, stood up and began speaking about the need for gun control legislation.

“Excuse me,” Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said as O’Rourke ignored him and went on about how “the time has come to put a stop” to gun violence. O’Rourke did not have a microphone, and most of his comments were inaudible.

“Sit down!” shouted Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) as the Democrat kept speaking.

“You’re out of line and an embarrassment!” Patrick told O’Rourke, while others began raising their voices.

“You are doing nothing!” O’Rourke yelled at Abbott as police officers began to march him out of the room.

“You need to get his a** out of here, this isn’t the place to talk this over,” said Uvalde Mayor Don Mclaughlin, calling O’Rourke a “sick son of a b****.”
