FreedomWorks Statement in Response to Leftist Calls for Censorship of Political Advertisements on Facebook

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to the calls from leftist organizations to censor political advertisements on social media platforms such as Facebook, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:

“In keeping with their recent efforts to silence the political speech of those they disagree with, the American left is now calling on platforms such as Facebook to remove the political ads of opponents who they disagree with. Platforms such as Facebook should be focused on freedom of expression, particularly in terms of political speech. The calls for Facebook to remove campaign ads are a stark reminder of the left’s belief that freedom of speech doesn’t exist for who they view as their political opponents.”
