Facebook removes Trump re-election ads that feature a Nazi symbol
I guess because I am not and never been nor want to be a white racist Nazi nationalist that the meaning of numerical symbolism had escaped me. Or perhaps I am just so naive or stupid.
Donald Trump, the non president more and more is exhibiting who he really is and what he is. VOTE VOTE VOTE AND GET HIM AND HIS COHORTS SUCH AS MITCH MCCONNELL THE HELL OUT OF OFFICE.
The Trump campaign also published on Facebook an ad with images of a red triangle that mirrored the patches Nazis used to mark political prisoners in concentration camps. The ads apparently ran 88 times—88 is code for Heil Hitler– and Facebook later removed the ads for promoting “organized hate.”
1488 is a combination of two popular white supremacist numeric symbols. The first symbol is 14, which is shorthand for the “14 Words” slogan: “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.” The second is 88, which stands for “Heil Hitler” (H being the 8th letter of the alphabet). Together, the numbers form a general endorsement of white supremacy and its beliefs. As such, they are ubiquitous within the white supremacist movement – as graffiti, in graphics and tattoos, even in screen names and e-mail addresses, such as firstname.lastname@example.org. Some white supremacists will even price racist merchandise, such as t-shirts or compact discs, for $14.88.
The symbol is most commonly written as 1488 or 14/88, but variations such as 14-88 or 8814 are also common.
