Fox News, NBC Pull Trump Caravan Ad – CNN & Facebook Won’t Run It
Not only are the Fascists at Facebook and CNN not going to carry President Trump’s caravan campaign ad, but now Fox News has pulled it after it aired on Sunday Night Football. NBC is also pulling the ad after it aired on MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Monday.
At the end of October, Trump tweeted out the ad writing, “It is outrageous what the Democrats are doing to our Country. Vote Republican now! http://Vote.GOP”
The ad includes footage of Luis Bracamontes, a twice-deported immigrant from Mexico sentenced to death in California for killing two police officers. He’s unrepentant about it. He’s laughing about it, and guess what? The American people, that’s you, are paying to keep this murdering illegal alien up.

However, a backlash set in claiming how “racist” it was. What? Yeah, I didn’t see it either, but the real racists at CNN always see it, right Don Lemon?
Of course, this has nothing to do with racism. It has to do with criminal activity, but these outlets are criminals themselves often in what they report.
CNN wrote of the ad:
The spot was swiftly denounced on Wednesday by pundits who compared it to the 1988 “Willie Horton” campaign ad that supported then-candidate George Bush. Attacking challenger Michael Dukakis’ prison furlough program in Massachusetts while he was governor, the ad cherry-picked an incident in which convicted felon Willie Horton raped a woman while on furlough, and has been widely denounced as racist in years since.
“Upon further review, Fox News pulled the ad yesterday and it will not appear on either Fox News Channel or Fox Business Network,” ad sales executive Marianne Gambelli told Mediaite.
NBC also said Monday that “after further review,” it will stop airing President Trump’s campaign advertisement.
Network outlets were not the only to reject that ad. The Fascists at Facebook gave that ever deceptive comment about the ad violating its policy.
“This ad violates Facebook’s advertising policy against sensational content so we are rejecting it,” Facebook told the Daily Beast. “While the video is allowed to be posted on Facebook, it cannot receive paid distribution.”
The reason? According to Facebook, the ad is “sensational.”
No, the ad is truth.
At least Donald Trump, Jr. took CNN to task over the issue.
On Saturday, he blasted them for not airing the ad.
“CNN has made it abundantly clear in its editorial coverage that this ad is racist. When presented with an opportunity to be paid to take a version of this ad, we declined. Those are the facts,” Trump Jr. tweeted.
CNN refused to run this ad… I guess they only run fake news and won’t talk about real threats that don’t suit their agenda. Enjoy. Remember this on Tuesday. #vote #voterepublican pic.twitter.com/VyMm7GhPLX

Additionally, Brad Parscale, Trump’s campaign manager tweeted out that these outets “have chosen to stand with those ILLEGALLY IN THIS COUNTRY. Instead of standing with LEGAL IMMIGRANTS and those that follow our laws.”
So, @NBCNews @CNN @facebook have chosen to stand with those ILLEGALLY IN THIS COUNTRY. Instead of standing with LEGAL IMMIGRANTS and those that follow our laws. The #FakeNewsMedia and #PaloAltoMafia are trying to control what you see and how you think. STOP THE CARAVAN!

The fact is that both the governments of the US and Mexico have confirmed that the caravans approaching the US border do have a criminal element inside them.
“I have videos from Guatemala that show men dressed in identical clothing, sporting the same haircuts, handing out money to women to persuade them to move to the front of the caravan,” Mexico’s Interior Minister Navarrete Prida stated in a recent interview.. “We know, for a fact, that some members of the caravan threatened [Mexican] Migration Institute personnel and we have images showing many of them preparing Molotov cocktails.”
On top of that, the Department of Homeland Security issued a statement on the caravan.
We continue to be concerned about individuals along the caravan route. In fact, over 270 individuals along the caravan route have criminal histories, including known gang membership. Those include a number of violent criminals – examples include aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, armed robbery, sexual assault on a child, and assault on a female. Mexican officials have also publicly stated that criminal groups have infiltrated the caravan. We also continue to see individuals from over 20 countries in this flow from countries such as Somalia, India, Haiti, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh. There is a large segment of this population that we know nothing about and we must be prepared to defend our border and enforce our laws to protect the citizens of our country.
DHS also responded to the question of whether or not there were criminals in the caravan, they answered:
…there are over 270 individuals along the caravan route that have criminal histories, including known gang membership.
They then proceeded to quote the Mexican Ambassador to the US, Geronimo Gutierrez.
On October 29, the Mexican ambassador to the U.S. described some of the caravan members as “very violent:” “Unfortunately, some of the people in the caravan have been very violent against authority, even though they have offered the possibility of entering in compliance with immigration law and refugee status.”
Some of us are not surprised by Fox News doing this. The other outlets are understandable given their Communist, state-controlled tendencies. However, for some, Fox pulling back may shock them. It really shouldn’t if you’ve been paying attention for any length of time. Fox is controlled opposition for the most part. One wonders just how much government money its been taking in to follow the narrative too.
