Facebook pulls Trump ads for violating ‘organized hate’ policy

Facebook pulls Trump ads for violating 'organized hate' policy 1

 

Facebook said it had taken action against ads run by President Trump's re-election campaign for breaching its policies on hate. The ads, which attacked what the Trump campaign described as "Dangerous MOBS of far-left groups," featured an upside-down triangle.

The Anti-Defamation League said Thursday the triangle "is practically identical to that used by the Nazi regime to classify political prisoners in concentration camps."
"We removed these posts and ads for violating our policy against organized hate. Our policy prohibits using a banned hate group's symbol to identify political prisoners without the context that condemns or discusses the symbol," Andy Stone, a Facebook spokesperson, told CNN Business.
The hate group to which Facebook was referring in its statement is Nazis, the company confirmed.
The ads targeted the far-left group antifa, calling on Trump supporters to back the President's calls to designate the group a terrorist organization.
Responding to criticism of the ad earlier Thursday, the Trump campaign claimed the red triangle was "a symbol widely used by Antifa."
The campaign pointed CNN Business to several links to poster, sticker, and magnet websites that sell unofficial merchandise designed by their users that contains the symbol. The campaign did not point to any examples of antifa activists wearing the symbol.
The ADL said Thursday that some antifa activists have used the symbol, but it is not particularly common.

      @socal rocks He could do it everyday, if it was his real intention. So please stop this non sense.

    • @socal rocks I’m actually kind of curious because an “Emergency order form the DOJ” to stop this book? Like why? I want to know just as much as you, because unlike most people I look at both sides, not just cultist-like behavior that one party is above approach.

    • The KKK symbol is not upside down. I just search the ADL database and I could not find the alleged racist symbol. If you find it let me know.

      Anonymous liar….because the intelligent communities proved trump was lying AGAIN! Antifa doesn’t exist as a group. But…the soldiers who faught the Nazi’s were anti-fascist. ANY normal person would and should be anti-fascist…or Antifa, otherwise they are like the Nazis which you seem to like. Are you are calling the soldiers on D-Day anti-American? Being anti-fascist is supposed to be the American way of life. Besides the fact that NO intelligent person could or should possibly believe ANYTHING the pathological liar in chief says as he has been proven to have lied over 17,000 times in 3 years. Pathetic and disgusting and vile.
      This symbol was used by the NAZI’S. History FACTS! Stop lying. It’s pathetic

      I think you should be more concerned with the fact that your president is following the nazi party handbook word for word symbol to symbol.

    • Zuckerberg had to draw the line somewhere, especially when it harkens back to the holocaust and its imagery.

  16. over the last month an a half….trump has been getting eviscerated….everything that could have gone wrong…has.

    No mistake, no error. All intentional.

  18. I bet Stephen Miller had something to do with this. He wanted to provoke his Neo-Nazi supporters.

    • Am sure that Miller’s JEWISH ancestors who were MURDERED by nazis are all rolling in their graves. I would LOVE to be “present” when he is confronted by his ancestors in the after life….honey

      Amazing how quickly these psychopaths in the republican party outed themselves. I guess the one positive side effect of Trump was helping publicly identify the men and women of the republican neo nazi party.

  19. Steve Bannon openly stated he wanted to start a race war. His plant is coming to fruition. It’s disgusting.
