Однако меня записали в ... экстремисты

On 16 January, Facebook announced that it will be “banning ads that promote weapon accessories and protective equipment in the US at least through January 22”. To those of us who have been observing the world of Trump-supporting social media, this announcement is a manipulative piece of whitewashing that obscures how Facebook’s algorithms continue to divide people the world over.
As part of my research while working as a consulting producer on Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, I made many pro-Trump social media accounts. The accounts were a window into the Trump echo-chamber, where the unhinged threats and vitriol posted by radicalized users are chilling. Yet as shocking as the posts can be, they make perfect sense if you look at the ads that bombard those accounts.
Roughly four out of five ads shown to my pro-Trump profiles sell tactical gear clearly intended for combat. This is not a new thing – it has been going on since I started looking at these accounts in June 2019, and it was probably going on much longer than that.

Согласно наблюдению, Фекйсбук рекламирует тактическое боевое снаряжение среди сторонников Трампа и ультраправых (типа нашего доктора Ебурга, светлая ему память). Однако, как вы видели, мне тоже предлагается снаряжение для скрытого ношения бронежилетов. Не тактическая снаряга, а именно для скрытого ношения в виде худи - типичной одежды Антифы. Видимо Скайнет посчитал меня противником режима, но никак не ультраправым, а ровно наоборот. Вообще хорошо, что меня забанили на Фейсбуке. Наверное, нахрен этих мудаков.
