    Marjorie Greene is running in Georgia's 14th District, and she already grabbed attention with a campaign ad where she warns Antifa to stay out of Georgia. In the ad, Greene is standing on the porch of a local business, and she is armed with an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle.

    "I have a message for Antifa terrorists," Greene says. "Stay the hell out of Northwest Georgia."

    "You won't burn our churches, loot our businesses or destroy our homes," Greene tells Antifa.

    Greene posted the campaign ad on Tuesday, but it was deleted by Facebook on Thursday. Facebook told Greene's campaign that the ad was pulled because it violated the company's policies against promoting the use of firearms.

    I did see her ad, and while I admire her chutzpah, I see this as incendiary, and I see it as ill-advised.

    I would not entice people, threaten people, intimidate people, or challenge people to do anything stupid; because as soon as you do that they certainly will.

    As much as I have shown off my personal weapons here, I would not go on the Internet and state or imply that it’s my intention to use them on anyone, in any manner, ever.

    If the time comes, the time comes, and then everything is out of my hands.

    But until that time I am going to keep my cards close and avoid threatening and inciting people who may take it as an existential provocation.

    Hey, Rip. I'm no way a fan of FB at all, but I wanted to clarify their published policy.

    It is very poorly worded, but on their site linked below the list is divided into two parts. The first two thirds of the list has green checkmarks in front of each item, indicating OK to advertise. That includes the safety courses.

    The last 5 items have red X in front, indicating NOT OK to advertise. That includes weapons and explosives.

    See the complete list below. [I color coded the words because the checks and X's did not copy from the list.]

    The left always complains about big business, that is until those businesses fall inline with their agenda as we are seeing now. Large corporations are climbing over one another to jump on the BLM bandwagon. I guess it's their way of buying protection since the left wants to do away with police forces.
