Facebook censored an advertisement run by the pro-life Irish Iona Institute because it used a medical image of a fetus as its photo.
The big tech platform initially accepted the pro-life advertisement, which contained an image of a fetal baby and the text “Still one of us” alongside it. After it ran for a short period on a three-day campaign, the image was censored by Facebook for containing violent or graphic content, but was still available on the platform.
Facebook did not respond to Big League Politics’ request for comment, but told the Irish Catholic newspaper that “a photo or video containing graphic content may appear with a warning to let people know about the content before they view it and may only be visible to people older than 18.”
It is unclear why Facebook considers the medical photo to be graphic.
Speaking to Big League Politics, the Iona Institute explained that the organization attempted to renew the organization after the three day advertising campaign, and their renewal was denied by Facebook without an explanation.
“Our post was initially accepted for a 3-day paid promotion,” said an Iona Institute representative. “When we tried to renew the promotion it was rejected but we didn’t get any notice from Facebook.”
The Iona Institute contacted Facebook to learn why their ad was rejected, and did not receive a response from the big tech platform.
This latest big tech censorship development comes after Facebook banned several prominent conservatives from the United States and the United Kingdom, including Paul Joseph Watson, Alex Jones, Laura Loomer, and Milo Yiannopoulos. Facebook will also take the unprecedented step of banning users for simply sharing links or videos featuring Jones.
Facebook Directly Censoring Tucker Carlson in Advance of November Election
They fear Tucker Carlson.
Facebook is censoring Tucker Carlson just weeks away from the November 3rd presidential election, hoping to silence America’s most popular political news figure.
Tucker Carlson hosts the most popular cable television show in American history on Fox News, and he’s one of the only journalists(although he eschews the term) that Americans who distrust oligarch-controlled corporate media rely on for information.
Facebook notified Tucker’s page on the social media giant that his posts would have “reduced distribution” for what they’re falsely claiming is “repeated sharing of fake news.”
Facebook has previously censored an interview Tucker conducted with a Chinese dissident who claims that coronavirus was engineered in a laboratory by Chinese government researchers.
Tucker is the most prominent political figure to criticize the alliance of big business with the establishment Democrat Party, most notably the tech monopolies of Silicon Valley. Facebook has now taken a page out of the Chinese or Soviet political playbook in censoring its own critics.
Left-wing whiners have been furiously clamoring for Facebook to censor more conservative and right-wing figures, pointing to the pitiful engagement that liberal pundits and politicians receive on the platform in comparison to figures like Tucker, Ben Shapiro, Donald Trump, and Mark Levin.
