It seems a side industry has sprung up overnight setting House Odds on when Faceberg is going to flip-flop and follow Twitter’s Jack Dorsey to outright ban political ads:

I dunno Kara, getting money out of Faceberg’s clenched fists is theoretically possible, I guess? It’s theoretically possible that Rush Limbaugh has seen his toes over his gut, too, though highly doubtful.
Comrade Stupid’s 2020 Campaign Manager Brad Parscale started off laughing at Twitter:
Twitter bans political ads in yet another attempt by the left to silence Trump and conservatives. Wouldn’t be surprised if @twitter lifted the ban after 2020.

…but if Swisher is right (and she often is), this will throw the 2020 Russian Usurper’s campaign into a tail spin. As we all know, the 4th Reich depends upon targeted Facebook ads to shape views and raise money; Facebook is Possum Hollar’s town paper, just as Fox News is their teevee station. Where will the Orcs and Minions get their conspiracy theories and organize those MASSIVE PROTESTS of 12 or so people on the Mall?
Parscale has mastered using Facebook’s precision-targeting to raise money, stir-up the yokels to scream “WITCH HUNT,” and to sell straws to own the Libtards (along with red hats and other fascist garb). He’s also already spent millions of Ameros, and that buys A LOT of targeted ads.
Tim Murtaugh, Comrade Stupid’s 2020 Communications Director is now sweating the possible loss of Facebook as a propaganda tool at all. Pay no attention to the sharks smelling blood:
“We’ve always known that President Trump was too successful online and that Democrats would one day seek to wipe him off the Internet.”
He’s got the Baghdad Bob impression down stone cold, huh! But I digress.
“That’s why we’ve invested so heavily in building up our data to allow us to communicate with millions of voters away from any third-party platforms like Facebook.”
That’s the tell. They are worried about Facebook shutting them out, so like a common Cambridge Analytica they’ve harvested data from Facebook users. Notice how he doesn’t back up that claim with anything, tho?
“Democrats demanding internet platforms shut down political advertising will guarantee Trump’s victory in 2020. They’re idiots.”
Back to Baghdad Bob! Damn, he’s good.
But here’s the final thought: if this happens and Faceberg folds to follow Twitter in banning political ads, it will not be because of the Democrats. Faceberg hisself clearly holds Dems in contempt and probably because they have not paid to play on his platform the same way that Putin has.
