ELECTIONEERING: Facebook Pulls Another Trump Campaign Ad, This Time a “Women for Trump” Ad — Comes After Facebook Eliminated Top Pro-Trump Publishers from Their Page
by Jim HoftAugust 20, 2019
Facebook removed a Women for Trump ad on Monday saying the ad violated Facebook policy.
According to Facebook and Gizmodo: “A Facebook spokesperson told Gizmodo that the ad violated a section of its policies that prohibits “content that asserts or implies personal attributes,” including “direct or indirect assertions or implications” about traits such as race, ethnicity, gender and sexual identity, religion, or financial standing.”
This follows reports in April that Facebook removed “hundreds” of Trump 2020 ads they say were in violation of policy.
In March 2018 Trump 2020 Campaign Manager warned Facebook to keep the playing field level.
In December 2018 Brad Parscale admitted in a tell-all interview with Frontline that the Trump campaign intends on spending millions on Facebook ads again in 2020 to help their candidate. Parscale was very public about the success of the Facebook ad strategy in the 206 election.
Since that time Facebook has started removing Trump campaign ads.
And, as readers of this website know, Facbebook has eliminated traffic to ALL the top pro-Trump websites since the 2016 election. Several of the top conservative websites from 2016 are no longer in business. This was a well thought out strategy by Facebook after the loss of Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Facebook eliminated page views to a majority of top pro-Trump conservative publishers after the 2016 election.
In 2016 suburban voters and women would check their Facebook pages and see conservative news. That is no longer the case. And in November these voters chose Democrats.
Facebook continues to wipe out conservative publishers.
In early August Rush Limbaugh brought up how Facebook was censoring The Gateway Pundit page.
Via Rush Limbaugh:
I think it’s a far, far bigger threat that Google and Facebook pose because the threat is that they pose is largely invisible. They’re not on the front lines. Google is not out manning phone banks. They’re not running around town registering voters per se. What they are doing is engaging in constant human manipulation. And I think this is a situation that we’re on the verge of seeing become reality.
Now, we’ve all heard the stories about how Google and Facebook are censoring conservative content. Whole websites, whole blogospheres, individuals, and then an individual tweet. I had a friend who simply clicked on a link to the website the Gateway Pundit and Facebook sent them a warning saying that this is a dangerous site. You should monitor this site. We will be monitoring this site. You should restrict your usage of this website. Gateway Pundit. It’s a conservative blog and website that is no threat to Google or anybody.
Thank you, Rush Limbaugh!
Let’s pray the GOP and Brad Parscale take action soon against Facebook.
Before it’s too late.
