Facebook on Thursday deactivated dozens of ads placed by President Trump’s reelection campaign that included a symbol once used by the Nazis to designate political prisoners in concentration camps.
While Antifa operates in a semi-autonomous fashion, most imagery associated with the group does not feature an upside-down red triangle. Instead, the symbols most commonly associated with the group are a circle with red and black flags in it or a circle with three arrows pointing down and to the left.
A red inverted triangle was used in the 1930s to identify Communists, and was applied as well to Social Democrats, liberals, Freemasons and other members of opposition parties incarcerated by the Nazis. The badge forced on Jewish political prisoners, by contrast, featured a yellow triangle overlaid by a red triangle so as to resemble a Star of David.
The red triangle appeared in paid posts sponsored by Trump and Vice President Pence, as well as by the “Team Trump” campaign page. It was featured alongside text warning of “Dangerous MOBS” and asking users to sign a petition about antifa, a loose collection of anti-fascist activists whom the Trump administration has sought to link to recent violence, despite arrest records that show their involvement is trivial.

I feel one day 5 or 10 years from now I'm going to be sitting in a Trump built concentration camp literally kicking myself at not taking this red triangle seriously.
This is the day people; the day we could have turned it all around if only we took the red triangle seriously.
If my children read this in the future; understand I truly am sorry for the life I left you, I wish desperately that I had taken the Red Triangle Facebook ads more seriously... but it was a red triangle for gods sakes.

What the Trump campaign ad actually did was point out that
it is Antifa that is using the upside down red triangle.
FUBAR on the part of Farcebook.
But welcome to 1984 where only the technocrats
can decipher life for all people.

This is pretty weak justification imo.
What seems likely to me is facebook doesn't want Trump's election ads, and then trawled for any conceivable reason to get rid of them.
Fun fact, a upwards red triangle was the symbol of the Iraqi Republican Guard. Trump is the Anti-Hussein confirmed.

Literally no one associates Nazis with a red triangle unless they are spin doctors trying to dig deep into the bowels of information to find a single reed to grasp (again and again over and over) to link Trump to some sort of Communist activity while simultaneously conditioning you to believe he is guilty of that which they are doing- PROPAGANDA.
Congrats, your mind hath become overtaken.
