Trump Keeps Blowing the Steam-Whistle of Hate

He's not subtle.
Facebook has removed a campaign ad by President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence that featured an upside-down red triangle, a symbol once used by Nazis to designate political prisoners, communists and others in concentration camps.

The company said in a statement Thursday that the ads violated “our policy against organized hate.” A Facebook executive who testified at a House Intelligence Committee hearing on Thursday said the company does not permit symbols of hateful ideology “unless they’re put up with context or condemnation.”

“In a situation where we don’t see either of those, we don’t allow it on the platform and we remove it. That’s what we saw in this case with this ad, and anywhere that that symbol is used, we would take the same action,” said Nathaniel Gleicher, the company’s head of security policy.

Well, using Trump’s very own metric (lying), he’s an “ enemy of the People” and “ fake news”. So why shouldn’t a non-governmental organization have the right to set their own standards and practices.

Exactly, if I can't as in any person, neither shall he be permitted.


His metric is the big lie.

He bought 88 ads that ran 14 words. Still, a little surprised that Facebook would take any of his stuff down.
