The Nazi Symbolism In Trump’s Ads Deleted By Facebook

In a breaking story Facebook has deleted several Trump Campaign advertisements for violating its policy against “organized hate.” The ads, attacking the Antifa boogeyman, included a symbol used by Nazis to identify political prisoners in concentration camps. Here is an example of one of the deleted ads.

The upside down triangle is the offending Nazi symbol involved. It seems to have no purpose other than to suggest that Antifa should be made political prisoners in the same way Nazis held political prisoners. This chart shows the various similar designators used in Nazi death camps.

Per Wikipedia, the upside down red triangle, for political prisoners, is for those “social democrats, socialists, communists and anarchists; rescuers of Jews; trade unionists; and Freemasons.” This comes on the heels of the revelation from John Bolton’s book that Trump endorsed concentration camps China to imprison its Muslim minority.

Team Trump is not even trying to hide what they are anymore.
