Trump 2020 Re-Election Campaign Ad Refused By Tech Giant Because it ‘Attributes Gender’?


Facebook has refused to run an ad for President Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign because it contained an appeal to “strong women.” What is wrong with that? Why it “assumes a gender,” of course.

We can’t have ads that assume that women are… you know… women!

The story comes from The Hill:

Popular Info reported Monday that Facebook pulled the Trump ad because it violated a policy that prohibits ads targeting “personal attributes.”

The ad in question featured a crowd of women with the caption, “The Women for Trump Coalition needs the support of strong women like you!”

Facebook’s ad policy prohibits “content that asserts or implies personal attributes,” including, among other things, “direct or indirect assertions or implications about a person’s … gender identity.”

“We’ve notified the campaign that the ads violate policy. They cannot continue to run unless fixed,” Facebook said they told the Trump campaign.

Seriously… what is going on in this nation?

When you can’t even make a video appealing to “strong women” because that breaks some sort of left-wing gender PCism… we have really gone over the edge.

Here is the exact language in the Facebook advertisement rules:

Ads must not contain content that asserts or implies personal attributes. This includes direct or indirect assertions or implications about a person’s race, ethnic origin, religion, beliefs, age, sexual orientation or practices, gender identity, disability, medical condition (including physical or mental health), financial status, membership in a trade union, criminal record, or name.

So, you cannot say something like, “Hey, ladies”?

This is all idiotic, left-wing, social engineering at its worse.
