The badass conservative candidate for US Congress, Marjorie Taylor Greene, is stirring things up in Georgia. She’s a avid supporter of the Second Amendment and rarely appears in an ad without holding a gun.
This week, in an ad to promote her candidacy, Taylor Greene posted an image of herself holding a gun alongside images of “Squad” members, Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ilhan Omar (D-MN). The ad, that appeared on Facebook was removed by the social media platform after Democrats complained. ***Note***the gun is not pointed at anyone in the ad, and at no point does she threaten anyone in the copy, unless of course, Facebook considers saying “SAVE AMERCIA. STOP SOCIALISM. DEFEAT THE DEMOCRATS!”
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) shared her exaggerated take on the ad, tweeting about the “assault rifle next to the faces of three women of color.” Omar demanded that Facebook remove the ad.
Posting a photo with an assault rifle next to the faces of three women of color is not advertising. It’s incitement.
There are already death threats in response to this post.
Facebook should remove this violent provocation. https://t.co/VYKzRv6VcB

Facebook spokesperson Andy Stone thanked the radical congresswoman for her objection to the ad and assured her that Facebook removed the ad because it violated their policies.
Thank you for raising this, Congresswoman. The image violates our policies and we've removed it.

Where was Andy Stone and Facebook when Occupy Democrats, one of the most vile pages on Facebook posted this image of Jesus Christ drowning President Trump? The vile, far-left Occupy Democrats page is consistently one of the top performing pages on Facebook.
Facebook also removed the popular “Patriot Prayer” Facebook page today. A member of the Patriot Prayer group, Aaron “Ray” Danielson was killed earlier this week by a self-proclaimed BLM supporter and Antifa member, Michael Forest Reinoehl. Reinoehl was killed during a gun battle with federal agents last night.
According to Nasdaq.com – Facebook took down the pages as part of efforts to remove “violent social militias” from its social networks, said spokesman Andy Stone.
The company updated its policies last month to ban groups that demonstrate significant risks to public safety.
Its dangerous organizations policy now includes groups that celebrate violent acts or suggest they will use weapons, even if they are not directly organizing violence.
Meanwhile, multiple pro-Antifa pages are still published on Facebook.
Occupy Democrats regularly mocks Christians on their Facebook page. This is apparently perfectly acceptable on Facebook, but Patriot Prayer is unnaceptable.
Marjorie Taylor Greene is not someone who’s going to back down in the face of censorship by Facebook. Taylor Greene recently condemned the violence by leftist thugs against conservatives after leaving the White House following President Trump’s RNC speech.
The violence and attacks launched by BLM thugs on @RandPaul and so many other Americans outside the White House last night should be a wake up call to our country.
