Last Thursday, Facebook decided to take action against certain publications in the framework of Donald Trump's presidential campaign for having gone against anti-hate speech policies. As reported by Andy Stone (Facebook spokesperson) to CNN: “We removed these messages and advertisements for violating our policy against organized hatred. Our policy prohibits using the symbol of a prohibited hate group to identify political prisoners without the context that condemns or disputes the symbol. ”
The symbols in question were described as "Dangerous MOBS of extreme left groups" and were accompanied by an inverted triangle. This image points out Anti-Defamation League (ADL), it is practically identical to the symbols used by the Nazi regime to classify political prisoners in concentration camps.
Faced with the actions taken by Facebook, Tim Murtaugh, director of communications for the President Trump campaign, told Fox News that the red triangle used is actually a symbol used by Antifa and that it has no relation to the Nazi regime. She also added that the image is not included in the ADL hate symbols database, so it does not make sense to have it deleted.
