Facebook Caves, Pulls So-Called ‘Racist’ Trump Ad After Left-Wing Reporters Whine

Published

on

After facing backlash from left-wing reporters and cable news outlets, Facebook banned a GOP ad deemed to be “racist.”

“It is outrageous what the Democrats are doing to our Country. Vote Republican now!” Tweeted President Donald J. Trump on October 31, attaching an ad of illegal immigrant Luis Bracamontes laughing in court while being arraigned for murdering two California Sheriffs.

Bracamontes vowed to the judge that he would kill more police officers if ever released, and expressed regret that he did not kill more before he was arrested.

Of course, the message of the advertisement was about illegal immigration, not the race of illegal aliens. But the mainstream press, which makes a pretty penny by finding racism where it doesn’t exist, thus sowing division among Americans, complained about the ad.

“NEW: Trump campaign Facebook ads are targeting voters in Florida and Arizona with that caravan ad that CNN deemed too racist to run,” said far-left activist and Daily Beast blogger Lachlan Markay.

Shortly thereafter, Facebook caved to the pressure and banned the ad. According to Breitbart, the pretext for banning the ad was that it violated Facebook’s rules against “sensational content.” The tech giant told Breitbart: 

This ad violates Facebook’s advertising policy against sensational content so we are rejecting it. While the video is allowed to be posted on Facebook, it cannot receive paid distribution.

This ad violates Facebook’s polices against sensational content. Ads must not contain shocking, sensational, disrespectful or excessively violent content. This includes dehumanizing or denigrating entire groups of people and using frightening and exaggerated rumors of danger.

Ads must not contain shocking, sensational, disrespectful or excessively violent content.
Examples:

  • Images that may shock or scare viewers
  • Images that are scary, gory or sensational
  • Ads depicting violence or threats of violence

Inasmuch as cop killers are inherently scary, the ad did indeed violate Facebook’s terms of service. But that was the whole point of the ad: to highlight the threat posed by dangerous, unvetted illegal aliens pose to society. Apparently, that discussion is now out of bounds on Facebook.

Brad Parscale, Trump’s 2020 campaign manager was incensed by Facebook’s removal of the ad, describing Silicon Valley tech giants as the “Palo Alto Mafia.”

Once again, the media is working in cahoots with social media giants to silence conservatives.

Gab Attacked in Coordinated Hacking Attempt, Timed to Coincide with CPAC

This hack coincided with Trump’s CPAC speech.

Published

on

Free speech social media platform Gab was attacked in a coordinated hacking operation sometime this weekend, with malicious actors briefly compromising accounts of prominent users of the platform.

Gab founder Andrew Torba disclosed the cyberattack, revealing that left-wing operatives had sought to compromise both his own Gab account and an archive account reserved for President Donald Trump. The attack compromised Trump’s reserved account minutes before the President was slated to speak on-stage at CPAC- with the timing suggesting the President may announce he’s joining the free speech social media service.

It’s unclear which other accounts were targeted. Torba confirmed that Gab was cooperating with law enforcement in response to the breach. Alt-tech competitor Parler also suffered from frequent data breaches and insecurity, and it may be that powerful institutions determined to take down Parler have shifted their focus to terroristic tactics targeting Gab.

Gab has been targeted on previous occasions by entities that oppose its mission to restore free speech on the internet. Torba’s disclosure of the incident differs greatly from the deceptive business tactics of Facebook and Twitter, which regularly decline to reveal data breaches and sell user information to corporations and governments at a whim and without any user consent.
