Democrat presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren, a woman whose entire life story is virtually fake, recently tried to shame Facebook for allowing President Donald Trump to run a campaign advertisement on its network like every other 2020 contender.
Late Saturday evening, Facebook finally responded to her trash-talking stunts by dropping a truth bomb about one of America’s core values: free speech.
@ewarren looks like broadcast stations across the country have aired this ad nearly 1,000 times, as required by law. FCC doesn’t want broadcast companies censoring candidates’ speech. We agree it’s better to let voters—not companies—decide. #FCC #candidateuse https://t.co/WlWePjh1vZ

Written by Facebook’s communications department, the tweet noted that the same Trump campaign ad that was shared by Facebook — and that Warren takes issue with — has also been broadcast on TV stations across the country.
“[L]ooks like broadcast stations across the country have aired this ad nearly 1,000 times, as required by law,” the message reads. “FCC doesn’t want broadcast companies censoring candidates’ speech. We agree it’s better to let voters — not companies — decide.”
Indeed. America, a constitutional Republic, is about free speech and democracy — and for those to exist, the people must be granted the right to decide the truth for themselves versus having it dictated to them by someone like Warren.
The far-left senator disagrees with this line of thinking.
“You’re making my point here,” she argued in a reply. “It’s up to you whether you take money to promote lies. You can be in the disinformation-for-profit business, or you can hold yourself to some standards. In fact, those standards were in your policy. Why the change?”

Her base feels similarly. As of Sunday afternoon, they’d ratioed Facebook’s response with calls for so-called “propaganda” to be silenced:

Publishing and accepting propaganda as if it is truthful is dangerous and irresponsible.
Voters should make decisions based on facts, not alternative mumbo jumbo.
Your policies are reckless and undermine our political process.

Well, been on the fence about Facebook for their role in pushing propaganda and lies, but this proves you have no intention to address it and worse, Facebook has its own political agenda.

Voters can’t make informed choices when a liar can easily spread their propaganda because they’re powerful and rich. Election integrity isn’t censorship lol

Sorry, wrong. Social media companies owned and active here in the USA should have ethical standards. The owners as citizens should want citizens to vote on the facts not propaganda.
If they don’t you get a person elected with foreign countries propaganda because many don’t check

Except what they call “propaganda” tends more often than not to simply be facts and opinions that belie the radical narrative to which they subscribe. Take for instance the biological fact that men cannot be impregnated. According to some liberal Democrats, even this fact is propaganda — namely “cisgender propaganda.”
That being said, some have found it amusing to hear Warren and her supporters kvetch about “propaganda” and “disinformation.” Why? Because as noted earlier, her own entire life story is fraudulent, aka phony, aka “ridiculous bulls***,” as the president himself would likely say.
She spent most of her life pretending to be Native American, when in reality she’s an average white woman. And she spent most of her political career pretending she was once fired from a job for being pregnant, when in reality that never happened.
For someone complaining about disinformation in bad faith, it turns out that Warren herself is the paragon of disinformation, misinformation and straight-up lies:
Did you just use disinformation in a sentence??you are the author & finisher of disinformation & misinformation. You are truly unbelievable…smh pic.twitter.com/LArw8HGNmY

Again your disinformation on being Native American (which I am) and being FIRED for being pregnant is despicable

Speaking of lies…even little ones, like losing your job because you were pregnant, in order to ‘relate’ to someone, somewhere who may have experienced the lie.
Are you in the disinformation-for-votes business?

“disinformation for profit” sounds a lot like your patently false claim of minority status to gain a $400,000 salary while teaching one class at Harvard Law.

“I want to censor speech I don’t like” is really your point. Speaking of disinformation, got any more lies about being a minority or being fired for not being pregnant?

If anyone knows a thing or two about lying and profiting from those lies, @ewarren does. She’s what you call an expert at it.
