(RoyalPatriot.com )- On Saturday, May 29, Loaded Cannon Distillery in Florida will be holding a free “Back the Blue” event featuring live music, food and free drinks.
Loaded Cannon is holding the event in conjunction with the release of a new line of whiskeys called “Lost Legends” – specifically made to give recognition to first responders, EMTs, police, and firefighters. Part of the proceeds from any purchases of “Lost Legends” made during the event will go to “Supporters of Law Enforcement” – a non-profit that provides support for members of law enforcement during illness, injury or crisis.
In order to promote their “Back the Blue” event and boost turnout, Loaded Cannon attempted several times to place ads on Facebook. But every time they tried, Facebook rejected the ads.
Instead, Loaded Cannon received a message from Facebook claiming the possible reasons for rejection included if the ad mentions sensitive social issues “that could influence public opinion, how people vote and may impact the outcome of an election or pending legislation.”
Supporting First Responders is a “sensitive social issue?”
It is ironic that Facebook would be concerned about ads that “may impact the outcome of an election.”
After all, in the fall of 2020, in an effort to “impact the outcome of the election,” Facebook joined Twitter in blocking any mention of the New York Post’s explosive story about Hunter Biden’s laptop.
This isn’t the first time Facebook has barred specific advertising that defies the Democrat Party agenda.
In 2018 the Susan B. Anthony List – a pro-life organization – was barred from running ads in support of then Senate-candidate Marsha Blackburn.
In August of 2020, an ad from America First PAC that warned of tax increases should Biden be elected was blocked by Facebook as well after Politifact rated the ad “mostly false.”
Only Politifact could see an ad that shows Biden saying, in his own words, “If you elect me, your taxes are going to be raised, not cut” and conclude it is “Mostly False.”
It isn’t that Loaded Cannon Distillery’s ad is a “sensitive social issue;” it’s that backing the blue is not in line with the Democrat Party’s (and Facebook’s) agenda.
Meanwhile, in early May, Facebook’s oversight board upheld the Tech giant’s decision to suspend Donald Trump. They will revisit this suspension in six months to review it again.
