Facebook just banned an ad from the Trump campaign denouncing the violence of Antifa.
Facebook is making it increasingly clear that it plans on playing an active role in the 2020 presidential election. Indeed, CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s feeble attempt to claim he applauds free speech is proving to be further and further from reality.
Breitbart reports that “the now-deleted Trump ad featured an inverted red-and-black triangle to symbolize the Antifa movement, which uses the red-and-black color scheme in their badges, flags, and propaganda as a form of ideological identification. Red and black are the historical colors of the anarcho-communist movement, and red triangles are an Antifa symbol according to products available for purchase.”
A screenshot from Breitbart showed the now-deleted ad:
Of course, it didn’t take long for Facebook to ban the ad, alleging that the upside-down triangle is a “hate” symbol with a history of being used by the Nazi regime.
Even though the Trump campaign ad was clearly about Antifa, Facebook banned it.
Apparently, this is the “free speech” that Zuckerberg wants us all to applaud.
