Facebook removed an ad from President Trump’s reelection campaign on Thursday that featured a symbol used by the Nazis to label political prisoners in Adolf Hitler’s concentration camps, saying the inflammatory post violated the platform’s “policy against organized hate.”
The disturbing ad, which was launched Wednesday, calls on users to sign a petition and “stand with your President and his decision to declare ANTIFA a Terrorist Organization.”
Beneath the ad’s text is a picture of a red upside-down triangle.
“We removed these posts and ads for violating our policy against organized hate. Our policy prohibits using a banned hate group’s symbol to identify political prisoners without the context that condemns or discusses the symbol.”Andy Stone-Facebook spokesperson
