    Election Ads

    Yesterday, Thursday, June 18....

    Facebook removed campaign ads by President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence that featured an upside-down red triangle, a symbol once used by Nazis to designate political prisoners, communists and others in concentration camps.

    This speaks for itself!!!!!

    I read that they said it was simply an emoji.
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    And if that's all it was, why even bother using it?

    There's probably some missing context which I'd be curious to know before making up my mind. I'm sure that's an outdated concept but, you know, I'm old.

    Could have been a clever marketing ploy to use a symbol that even the Anti-Defamation League doesn't list in its hate symbols because it's no longer relevant. That way he couldn't associate himself with anything that has current relevance while eliciting denouncements from the media which in turn will jazz up certain elements of his base.

    That could be, but from what I've seen this morning, it's not his base that's jazzed up about it.

    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.
