Facebook eliminated President Trump's campaign advertisement that tackles left-wing extremists and the ANTIFA for violence and domestic terrorism.
The rampant domestic terrorism by the left-wing extremists, which was the collateral of George Floyd's death, was described by President Donald Trump and Attorney General William Bar as a “domestic terrorist organization.”
President Trump's deleted advertisement campaign was illustrated by an up-side-down black-and-red triangle to embody the ANTIFA, that's being represented by black-and-red flags, propaganda, and badges as another form of identity. Black-and-red is the chronicled color pallet representation of anarchic communism
Violent and savage groups of protestors are wrecked havoc through cities, and these people are ruining their own country out of the madness.
The post stated: “It's important that EVERY American comes together at a time like this to send a united message that we will not stand for their radical actions any longer. We're calling on YOU to make a public statement and add your name to stand with President Trump against ANTIFA; please add your name IMMEDIATELY to stand with your President and his decision to declare ANTIFA a Terrorist Organization”.
Facebook argued that the red triangle “is a hate symbol” due to its likeness to the symbol that Nazi Germany utilized.
“We removed these posts and ads for violating our policy against organized hate,” a Facebook spokesperson said to New York Daily News. “Our policy prohibits using a banned hate group's symbol to identify political prisoners without the context that condemns or discusses the symbol.”
President Donald Trump's campaign reacted to an article posted on Twitter by Media Matters.
“Facebook let the Trump campaign run 88 ads with an inverted red triangle — an infamous Nazi symbol,” Media Matters tweeted.
The Trump Team replied: “This is an emoji. It's also a symbol widely used by Antifa. It was used in an ad about Antifa. “It is not in the A.D.L.'s Hate Symbols Database.”
They elaborated on how the symbol is often used by Antifa.
“The red triangle is an Antifa symbol,” stated nuTrump campaign spokesman Ken Farnaso.
This is one of the countless examples as to why President Donald Trump's administration is beginning to act against tech goliaths like Facebook.
The Wall Street Journal stated that the D.O.J. is arranging to remove protection for big tech companies to resulting in further accountability towards their behavior and actions.
The bill will hopefully be released to Congress.
Section 230 guards a myriad of platforms, content providers, and web services from liability for outside content that passes through their servers.
The law, passed in the early days of the internet, is a crucial legal protection for enormous internet search engines and social media platforms. Even a single adjustment in the law's protections may significantly affect the processes of how those companies operate.
To a lesser extent, the law also protects media outlets from liability for comments posted on their articles. Section 230 also offers a wide degree of latitude to all internet companies to police content posted on their sites.
President Trump approved an executive order last month, instructing the Federal Communications Commission to review the law amid allegations from conservatives that powerful tech companies like Google, Twitter, and Facebook are unfairly censoring conservative viewpoints under the guise of combating racism, sexism, and other forms of so-called hate speech.
