Facebook Bans “Women for Trump” Ads, Because They Target “Gender”…

Facebook has banned any ads from the Women For Trump movement because they target support from “Women” for Trump.

Facebook has removed President Trump’s pro-women re-election advertisements, according to reports from tech site Gizmodo, as well as the left-wing Popular Information blog that reported a “violation” of Facebook’s terms and conditions.

Facebook policy states advertisers may not have “direct or indirect assertions or implications” about race, ethnicity, gender and sexual identity, religion, or financial standing. So the Women For Trump advert was banned… for referring to women.  (read more)

      It already is. Learn about the DARPA project which ended the day Facebook began.

      See, when a project is done by government, some things are not legal under the law. But when it’s in civilian hands and cooperating with government, it’s “just fine.”

      Agreed Fred,

      But in this particular case It’s possible that banning these ads will only draw greater attention to them.

      What do they say about any publicity and all that.

      This type of censorship motivates PDJT supporters, and likely awakens a few indies too.

    Only the thought police get to tell you what the rules are and how they are applied. If you disagree with them, you are banished. I suspect FB no longer even needs all its members posting everything, since they’ve built up a digital profile on everybody, and use all sorts of tricks, hacks and malware to find out about you even if you don’t ever post anything. They’re just in the business now of helping their friends obtain absolute power so they can all go to Global Socialist Utopia together.

    ———

    “Facebook’s audit of conservative claims of bias on the social network drew sharp criticism from both ends of the political spectrum on Tuesday, with a leading Republican calling it a whitewash and liberals saying it legitimizes unfounded allegations of anti-conservative censorship.

    The eight-page interim report, authored by former Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.), doesn’t come to a definitive conclusion about whether bias exists on the platform, but appears designed to quell mounting accusations by GOP leaders, including President Donald Trump, that the social network suppresses right-leaning views. Republicans have not offered evidence of systematic bias, but are pushing the claims with greater force heading into the 2020 election cycle.”

    I’d start with a suit for $20 billion and see where it goes. That’s a paltry $1,000 bucks each for 20 million irate women… minus the legal team’s fees, of course.

    Mark Zuckerberg is an emotional six-year-old with extraordinary powers to control the internet where he rules by simply wishing away people and things that anger or confound him. Mark has the mind and imagination of a typical control freak fascist of no especially cleaver whim. The people on Facebook have to look like sheeple all the time, think sheeple thoughts, and says sheeple things, because that’s what Mark commands and, if they disobey, he can brand them a Hate Criminal and wish them into a cornfield from whence they are never to be seen nor heard from again. What few adults remain try nervously to think like sheeple and tell Mark that he’s a good boy, hoping that Mark’s terrible power won’t be turned upon them.

    So. . . can’t the group claim that it is NOT in violation of the rule because it is tby people who identify as women, targeting people who identify as women?

    The rule that is claimed they violated according to the source is: “Number twelve on the list prohibits ads that target ‘personal attributes.’ Facebook says ads must not include ‘direct or indirect assertions or implications about a person’s… gender identity.'”

    There is no assertion OR implication.

    Also, the media CREATED this story. The media source called Facebook and asked why the ad was allowed since it violated rule 12 and then Facebook pulled it.

    Piers Morgan: Populism is rising because liberals have become unbearable, Okay? And I speak as a liberal… Liberals have become utterly, pathetically illiberal and it’s a massive problem. What’s the point of calling yourself a liberal if you don’t allow anyone else to have a different view? You know, this snowflake culture we operate in, this victimhood culture that everyone, has to think in a certain way, behave a certain way. Everyone has to have a bleeding heart… You say a joke 10 years ago that offended somebody you can never host the Oscars… So what’s happening around the world? Populism is rising because people are fed up with the PC culture. They’re fed up with the snowflake culture. They’re fed up with everyone being offended by everything… They just want to tell people, not just how to lead their life but if you don’t lead it the way I tell you to, It’s a kind of version of fascism.
