Facebook Removes Trump Ads With Nazi Symbol!

Once again, the Trump administration proves to be racist against all who are NOT of German descent.

On Thursday, Facebook announced that they removed campaign posts and advertisements from the Trump campaign featuring an upside-down red triangle symbol once used by Nazis. The emoji was used to identify political opponents. Read on for more about why Facebook removes Trump ads…

CelebNPolitics247.com has the latest political news via to a Facebook spokesperson, violated the social network’s policy against hate.

The spokesperson told NPR:

Our policy prohibits using a banned hate group’s symbol to identify political prisoners without the context that condemns or discusses the symbol.
One of the political advertisements claimed that “dangerous MOBS of far-left groups are running through our streets and causing absolute mayhem.” The ad went on to say protesters are destroying America’s cities by rioting. “It’s absolute madness,” the ad said.

Some prisoners in Nazi concentration camps were identified with colored inverted triangles sewn onto uniforms to allow SS guards to identify the alleged grounds for being detained, according to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Of course, the Trump campaign responded trying to downplay the red triangle symbol with a lighthearted comparison to the red triangle symbol:

This is an emoji.

Apparently, the Trump administration believes that Americans are utterly stupid.

Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh used this excuse:

Some products are sold online that use the inverted red triangle in antifa imagery, though experts said it is not a commonly adopted symbol among anti-fascist activists.

Murtaugh said:

We would note that Facebook still has an inverted red triangle emoji in use, which looks exactly the same, so it’s curious that they would target only this ad.

The campaign also said that the symbol is not in the Anti-Defamation League Hate Symbols Database.

Meanwhile, Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, pointed out that the database is not a collection of historical Nazi imagery.

He said:

It’s a database of symbols commonly used by modern extremist groups and white supremacists in the United States.

Greenblatt said removing the posts should not have been a hard call.

He said the Trump campaign should apologize.

Jonathan Greenblatt said:

Intentionally or otherwise, using symbols that were once used by the Nazis is not a good look for someone running for the White House. It isn’t difficult for one to criticize a political opponent without using Nazi-era imagery.
