ELECTION INTERFERENCE: Facebook Targets Trump Campaign Once Again
Anyone who says that Facebook isn’t interfering in the upcoming election is lying or they’ve been drinking the kool-aid.
Once again, the social media giant has taken down a number of ads from the Trump campaign.
Facebook spokesperson Andy Stone said in a statement on the removal: “We rejected these ads because we don’t allow claims that people’s physical safety, health, or survival is threatened by people on the basis of their national origin or immigration status.”
The ad from the Trump campaign featured footage of Democratic nominee Joe Biden discussing border security and claims that Biden would increase refugee admissions from Somalia, Syria, and Yemen by 700 percent. The ad further states that “an increase in refugees” represents public health risks.
The ads were targeted to key swing states such as Florida and North Carolina, some of the variations of the ad received thousands or tens of thousands of impressions according to NBC. One version of the ad was targeted at Facebook users in Florida and received 5,000 to 6,000 impressions before being removed while another version targeted at people in North Carolina received between 60,000 to 70,000 impressions.
This is getting absolutely ridiculous. They have removed over 200 Trump ads.
They’re not removing Joe Biden’s ads or censoring him. Why is that? He even just recently called Kyle Rittenhouse a white supremacist in an ad that is STILL UP.
It’s so bad that Rittenhouse’s lawyer has threatened to sue if it’s not removed. That was actually a few days ago and it is still up.
For the life of me I can’t seem to find a link to the ad other than the one that is embedded on Breitbart, but you can find it there along with the extended version of the ad which is 15 seconds longer than the one which was removed. But that’s what seems so crazy to me, Facebook didn’t remove the longer version. Why not?
